Meet The Smart Woman’s Dermatologist!
Everything you need to know about the latest and greatest in skin care, plus an invite to join Harvey at a BettyConfidential party!
As your Cyber Main Gay, you know I love a great party! I’m so excited to emcee a “Girls Night Out with Betty Confidential!” Hosted by Betty Confidential’s CEO Deborah Perry Piscione, with the proceeds going to the Drake and Dominick fund for AVID , the party takes places in Palo Alto on March 10. Get all the details here!
This evening is going to be a beauty blast! Dr. Vic Narurkar (bayarealaserdr.com) will be demonstrating the latest non-evasive skin treatments plus doing free Latisse to make our eyelashes more glamorous! Can’t wait!
Dr. Narurkar, whose practice is in San Francisco, is known as the “Smart Woman’s Dermatologist.” I had the chance to have a beauty chat with him and get the skinny on the latest and greatest. On a personal note, he loves animals and is a huge supporter of the ASPCA. He’s also engaged with Project New Start, to give kids a second chance at living fulfilling lives! You have to love a man who helps animal and children!
From a medical perspective, Dr. Narurkar is passionate about embracing techniques and materials that are on the cutting edge. He’s positioned perfectly in the Silicon Valley, which is the incubator for pharmaceutical companies and tech innovations that help with overall image and well being! What I love about Dr. Narurkar is that he truly understands the anatomy of the face and neck, and never gives an unnatural or “Over Filled” look. You know what I’m talking about girls!
He told me “It’s not the filler, it’s the person doing the filling that makes the difference ” He strives to achieve a natural look — less is more!
If you’re considering having any procedure performed, find a Board Certified Dermatologist in your area. A great resource for this is New Beauty Magazine.
Plastic surgery has seen major improvements in the last five years. Dr. Narukar believes in the ‘Holy Trinity” — Botox, then Juvederm, followed with Thermage skin tightening and Fraxel Laser resurfacing. All non-evasive with minimal down time! This series of treatments relaxes fine lines, tightens and firms problem areas, improves skin texture and clarity, erasing any sun damage or acne scarring that makes us appear older. The days of having to go “under the knife” and hide away for a month are over! This new approach leaves you looking refreshed and honestly years younger. If you’re seeking major structural improvements like upper eye lids, sagging jaw line, or you are thinking about a brow or face lift, those evasive procedures have moved light years ahead as well. Here’s a link to start your journey if you’re considering taking this path!
As a beauty junkie you know I love skin care! Remember that a face-lift can’t bring radiance back! Dr. Narurkar is a believer in skin care. His top picks are the tried and true Retin-A and the fabulous TNS serum!
Retin-A is still the gold standard in anti-aging for skin that can tolerate it. If you’re sensitive, Poetry in Lotion is a nice Retinol alternative!
Most importantly, Dr. Narurkar recommends a baseline skin exam once a year especially if you’re at high risk. Melanoma is serious girls and I want you safe and protected!
Look for the party pics on my Facebook page March 11!
