DeNovo salon and med spa is hosting a spa event tomorrow, Wednesday, December 2. (Can you believe it’s already December?) Staff members will be handing out 20 percent off cards for all med spa services. (The list of treatments includes Botox, Zerona, Microdermabrasion, photofacials, laser hair removal, etc.) Unfortunately, it doesn’t work with the plastic surgery menu at deNovo, so you can’t take 20 percent off your boob job. But you CAN use the card for hair and skin treatments, too, which include facials, massages, manis and pedis, waxing, and then the usual gamut of hair treatments from cuts and styling to coloring and updos. At the event you’ll be able to grab a drink and a plate of food and sit down with staff plastic surgeons, hair stylists, and aestheticians for free consultations, too. Then enter your name in the raffles for a shot at winning services and products. The event takes place from 5 pm to 8 pm tomorrow. deNovo. 2603 Oak Lawn, Suite 100. 214-219-4100 or www.denovospa.com.
I’m not sure if this tool is brilliant or terrifying. It’s basically an Extreme Makeover online tool from New Beauty magazine. (Is that show on anymore?) Upload your “before” face. Choose the surgeries you want. A little Botox for your wrinkles? A nose job? A little lip plumping, perhaps? Hell, even take a handful of pounds off your punim. Then decide whether or not you like the “after” you. What you do from there is up to you. Opinions on this tool, ShopTalkers? Fun or frightening?
There are a couple of local connections in this Wall Street Journal story about fat ankles, such as the area surgeon who says he does 10 to 12 ankle liposuctions a year, and the Irving-based Gold’s Gym having declared July “Cankles Awareness Month.” Those two tidbits alone had already left me scratching my cankles, but then I got to the part about Preparation H. Jump for it.
We knew she was going places the second we saw her fab blog Sea of Shoes, so we profiled her in November 2008. Turns out, the Trophy-club teen has been one busy gal, designing shoes (J. Aldridge by Sea of Shoes – gladiator heel pictured at left) for Urban Outfitters, being interviewed by many fashion blogs, and most recently, appearing in the latest issue of Vogue along with her equally fashionable (a former model) mother, Judy. Be sure to pick up a copy and check out what the stylish duo has their eye on for fall.
Sheyla Hershey’s 38KKK bust has broken the world record for largest breasts. (Thank you, Best Week Ever blog.) Because Texas law wouldn’t allow her any more surgeries, the 20-something actress traveled to Brazil for her latest operation. Now I’m just wondering how fine the line is between having the biggest boobs and being the biggest boob.
Pardon the randomness of this post, but I got a press release earlier this week for something called NUVO Sparkling Liqueur, “a new spirit that’s taking the celebrity world by storm,” and it made me think of butt implants. Weird, I know, but stay with me. See, “celebrity” Kim Kardashian is a fan of NUVO—or, at the very least, was willing to pose with a bottle of it—and she’s famous for what? That’s right: her extraordinary rear view. And, coincidentally, when I got this press release, I was in the middle of some research for D Beauty that involved my polling local plastic surgeons about various procedures, including buttock augmentation. And here, dear readers, is the tidbit I really wanted to share with you: butt implants are hard to come by in Dallas. Of about a dozen offices I talked to in one day, none of them performed the procedure. Which surprised me. I was under the impression that ever since J. Lo brought the booty back all those years ago, it meant that you could get your bum enhanced just about anywhere. Wrong-o. So, all you flat-bottomed girls out there, if you’re looking for a little more cushion (something I can’t relate to in any way, BTW), you might have to look harder than you thought.
P.S. NUVO is available at liquor stores nationwide, in case you want to mimic Kimmy’s drinking habits as well.
Innovations MedSpa, with locations in Fort Worth, Grapevine, and Dallas, is the first med-spa in Texas and the only one in Dallas to have the new SmartLipo MPX machine, the latest technology in laser liposuction, which works by distributing heat evenly to melt away fat. Innovations also received the new SmartSense handle, ensuring constant energy during the procedure–which, in layman’s terms, means it’s safer for you. Cost: $2,500-$3,500 per area.
As a recent press release brought to my attention, “One of the hottest questions on the
street street street is ‘Where did you get those party lips?’” (Oh, you didn’t know? Weird.) Lip lady Sandra Witten, PA, of Park Cities Dermatology has her clients clamoring over the plump pouts. Created with the injectable Juvederm*, the look can last up to six months. And with minimal downtime, you’ll be out of the doctor’s office and back to your party lifestyle lickity split. Remember? On the street.

What self-respecting Dallas girl wouldn’t want to get rid of a little fat? Well, ladies, you might want to book an appointment with Dr. Briant Herzog at Herzog Laser Center for a little Lipotherme™ treatment. The heat-generating laser (is there any other kind?) liquefies and removes unwanted fat, and the heat causes the skin to contract, resulting in firmer, smoother skin. According to the release, Dr. Herzog says that, compared to traditional lipo, there is less trauma, less downtime, and fewer side effects. And, presumably, less of a dent in your wallet. Check out the before-and-afters. Personally, I’d like to look like the chick in the bikini–you know, the one who doesn’t need laser lipo.
