Botox or Juvederm - what's right for you?

The Lierac team is still talking about our panelist event a few weeks ago with NewBeauty Magazine, and we've been wanting to share all the amazing information we learned with those of you who couldn't make it!

We sorted through the videos we took of our fabulous panelists, and we now hold in our hands the answers to all of your beauty questions - from wrinkles to cellulite to crooked smiles, these doctors covered it all, and we're excited to share with you!

We'll be posting a new topic every Thursday, and this week we're starting with Dr. David Goldberg, Board Certified Dermatologist, who explains the difference between Botox and Juvederm... Enjoy!

LIERAC Paris and NewBeauty Magazine Event

On Thursday October 14th, we were excited to join forces with NewBeauty magazine to host an informative event at our flagship location, Phyto Universe, on 58th and Lexington. Despite the evening's "Nor-Easter," we had a wonderful turnout!

The evening centered around a panel discussion moderated by NewBeauty's Katrina Haug-Brown entitled "Advances in Cosmetic Medicine." Prominent industry experts in the fields of: dermatology - Dr. David Goldberg, plastic surgery - Dr. Sharon Giese, and cosmetic dentistry - Dr. Timothy Chase, as well as our very own Education Director, Catherine Raubiet, answered tons of questions from the audience.

Most of the questions asked were collected ahead of time, but some audience members had the opportunity to ask their questions live. Topics discussed ranged from wrinkles, Botox, and liposuction, to scar improvement and teeth correction. We learned that lasers can be used to treat wrinkles, skin doesn't have to become more sensitive once spots are removed, gum lifts can be performed to help treat "gummy" smiles, and there is a big difference between Juviderm (a sugar substance that just fills in) and Botox.

Raffle prizes included: a FREE consultation and 10% off of a service at Dr. David Goldberg's office, a $150 gift bag of LIERAC bestsellers, 3 NewBeauty totes brimming with their magazine, TestTube, and fragrance box.

Prior to, and after the roundtable, guests mixed and mingled with the doctors one-on-one while enjoying Le Poisson wine and hors d'oeuvres.
