The Silk’N Face FX on “The Ricki Lake Show”

I was recently asked to demonstrate a novel, take-home device for tightening the skin of the face for “the Ricki Lake Show.” This is a one-of-a-kind device, and although not the same as the laser treatments in the office, can be a nice way to rejuvenate your skin at home.

Teens Turn To Plastic Surgery: Experts Tackle The When And Why
