Minimum Intervention, Maximum Effect®



The Knife Coach Reveals!

From New York to London and Hong Kong to Dubai, women seeking information and advice for cosmetic and plastic surgery know her name. Wendy Lewis began in 1997 by advising and informing patients, not only in suggesting cosmetic treatments, but the doctors that each particular case should visit in order to make her/his dream come true. To boot, Wendy is the author of eleven books concerning beauty and plastic surgery, and despite living in New York, she splits her time between London and Palm Beach. "I know a surprisingly large number of doctors, especially dermatologists and plastic surgeons, both personally and through their work, as well as the unique strengths of each and every one of them. Thus, I can recommend someone without having any underlying motives, simply because I believe that they are the most suitable doctor for that patient. When I say suitable, I don’t only mean that they can carry out a specific surgery successfully, but that they also match the personality of the patient. And, of course I am regularly updated on the latest techniques, "she says.

1. UV exposure is a major culprit in aging your skin. So whether you are sailing in the Aegean, basking on the beaches of St. Tropez or just walking around the streets of New York, SPF30 is essential on all areas of skin that are exposed to sun and pollution. And get your tan from a bottle only.

2. Retinol is the #1 anti-aging ingredient you need for youthful skin. It is best to use at bedtime so it will sit on your skin for a full eight hours. My personal favorite is ZO® Skin Health Ossential® Advanced Radical Night Repair.

3. Healthy skin needs gentle and consistent exfoliation to turn over cells and keep the surface smooth and pores unclogged. Weekly treatments at home with Natura Bisse Glyco Extreme Peel will preserve your natural radiance.

4. Keep cocktails to a minimum. Alcohol takes a toll on your skin and overall health and is very dehydrating. Puffy eyelids, sallow skin, slack tone can all be attributed to a love for Chardonnay.

5. Just as skin thins with age, so does hair. If you start to see 150 hairs or more in your brush or the shower drain, your hair may need some extra tender love in order to regain its shine and bounce. Watch out for habits that promote hair shedding, such as extensions, over processing, and heat appliances.

6. The best aesthetic treatment on the market is BOTOX® or Azzalure®. They work with tiny injections that soften muscle activity, and thus, diminish wrinkles in the skin. They are preventative as well as corrective, so starting early works best, especially for forehead and crow’s feet.

7. See a dermatologist for skin problems that persist like acne, flare ups, rosacea, thread veins, and any little moles or lumps that may need attention. New high tech scanners can detect skin cancer early and could save your life.

8. Skin is skin. Your skincare regime shouldn’t stop at your chin. Take care of your neck that has no oil glands and is susceptible to the signs of aging, as well as the décolletage, hands and legs too. A woman’s hands and neck often give away her age.

9. Nothing beat one fabulous skin perfecting foundation to cover flaws and enhance your complexion. La Prairie® Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation Sunscreen SPF 15 does it all and looks completely natural without streaks.

10. To maintain a young look, think lasers and light. Milder treatments are fractionated, which means that the beam of light only treats about a third of the skin’s surface each time, which keeps healing to a minimum. Ultherapy® is very hot right now for skin tightening of the face, neck and décolletage.
