Take Home Chemical Peel by Dr. Dennis Gross

I must admit, when I heard one of our lovely aesthetician’s, Jeanmarie, tell me about this product we had from Dr. Gross I thought she was kidding. Dr. GROSS, REALY!!? I’m sure his marketing department had a few laughs when he told them he was going to use his name as the new brand! But name aside, my whole Dr. Gross experience started not with the pads; but during my facial with the Dr. Gross alpha beta peel.

Dr. Dennis Gross Take Home Peel

The Dr. Dennis Gross take home chemical peel comes in 2 strengths: original and extra strength. Both strengths are available at Ocean Drive Plastic Surgery.

Now to appease my Beaurds (Beauty Nerds) out there I will give you a quick run-down about the product. Alpha beta itself is a spectrum of acids including lactic, glycolic, and salicylic that in conjunction with each other instantaneously boosts collagen; I mean hello who doesn’t want more of that! It also uses these natural acids to safely eat away any dead skin on the surface with no down time. Now luckily I have never had acne issues (knock on wood), but I do have small bumps from time to time, called milia, because I used to never exfoliate or give my face a real good cleaning. Let’s face it (no pun intended), lots of women don’t have the time or the energy after a long day to do the multiple steps it takes to fully clean our faces yet we want the fresh, youthful glow that apparently Cindy Crawford gets from a melon..Riiiight.. So when Jeanmarie told me I could get the same results from the Dr. Gross alpha beta professional peel at home, I got really REALLY excited.

Take Home Chemical Peel by Dr. Gross

The take home peel is easy to apply and travel with because it contains pads that are presoaked in alpa beta hydroxy acids.

The take home chemical peels are presoaked pads that are the same formula but a safer strength for at home use. The Dr. Gross alpha beta pads are a “cocktail of acids”. This is a formula developed by Dr. Gross himself, who was a Sloan Kettering cancer research scientist. In efforts to eradicate skin cancers he developed this formulation to minimize aging. The pads come individually wrapped in two steps. Step 1 being the surface refiner and step 2 being the deeper treatment. Waiting 2 minutes in between each step gives the best results! I use the pads every night before bed and swear that I wake up feeling cleaner and more refreshed with each use. Now I truly get the concept of not judging a book by its cover; because there is absolutely nothing GROSS about these magical pads!

Put your Best BREAST Forward!

Bathing Suit Season Florida

The 365 days of bathing suit season makes exposed breasts a normal part of life down here (in Florida), says Brittany.

Hello world! First Time blogger here so please excuse my rambling on, run on sentences, grammatical errors, and anything else that might offend the well rounded and experienced bloggers out there. For my first blog I thought I would talk about something near and dear to my heart (literally), my Breasts.

Being a young woman who has grown up in Florida, I have been around and seen a lot of breasts! Chalk it up to the unbearable heat, miserable humidity, or the ‘365 days of bathing suit season; exposed breasts are a normal part of life down here.

Why I Chose to have a Breast Augmentation

Before my breast augmentation I wasn’t a small breasted woman by any means, I just wasn’t as perky or “full up top” as I would like to have been. Once I made up my mind to get a breast augmentation I spent days, weeks, MONTHS even pouring over pictures and reading breast aug blogs so I knew exactly what I was getting myself into. I had previously thought I wanted to go down south for my operation (not really sure why I thought this). But, being an employee here at Ocean Drive Plastic Surgery I got to watch the way Dr. Durkin operates, takes care of his patients, and see the overall structure of our cosmetic surgery process. It didn’t take me long to pass up my down south plastic surgery dreams because I knew then I would be in great hands here.

I wanted naturally phenomenal looking breasts that would leave people questioning whether or not they were fake.

I had my pictures going in of what I wanted, a mix of Carmen Electra and Kate Upton with a dash of Kim Kardashian. I didn’t want them too big, too perky or too fake looking. Luckily, I had a great plastic surgeon who after hearing my speech and seeing my pictures knew exactly what would give me the results I wanted!

My Breast Augmentation Experience

Breast Implant Mentor

Silicone Breast Implant (400 cc).

Dr. Durkin took his time to go into detail about breast implant sizes, profiles, silicone vs saline, and insertion sites. During my consultation I got to try on all the breast implants in a bra so I could see for myself the difference in each one he had to offer. I ended up picking, with Dr. Durkin’s guidance, a 400cc High Profile silicone breast implant.

It’s been over a month now and I couldn’t be happier with my results! I have cleavage in a sports bra, I don’t have to buy my bathing suit tops with padding, and best of all I can walk around the house naked and confident. I tell everyone choosing to get a breast augmentation was the best decision I have ever done for myself and I mean that.
