Industry: Consumer Services

During 2008 and the last year the teeth whitening industry has continued to grow in the wake of the worst financial and economic downturn for many years and this is likely to be due to the fact that people are spending more money on personal grooming, botox, gym memberships and cosmetic surgery to make them look and feel better through these troubled times.

It is difficult to read any magazines or view TV makeover shows without teeth whitening being mentioned or featured and this is likely to continue as we enter 2010 as the range of teeth whitening products and services seem to give consumers the choice to suit their budgets and personal requirements.

One company who has continued to grow is White Teeth Company – (http//:www.whiteteethcompany.co.uk) who have grown their range of clinics across the south of England. Marketing Manager Jason Scott comments that the growth is due to customer demand and many of our clients are referred from previous customers.

The appearance of loose droopy skin under the eyes can be very ageing and give a“sad” look to your face. Sun and smoking can accelerate the signs of ageing, while others are more prone to inherit the condition.

Eye bag removal is a common and simple procedure which can deliver dramatic results, making the eye area look more youthful, attractive and alive. The procedure is becoming increasingly popular in men as well as women. The Hospital Group can help you achieve a more bright-eyed, wide awake look.

A spokesperson for The Hospital Group, said: “Over the years people’s lifestyles have changed and grown to be far more hectic. As a result of this people become have become heavily deprived of sleep. This, combined with ageing, create eye-bags which many of our patients deem “unsightly”.

PhytoCeuticals, Inc., strongly cautions its customers that some claims being made by IS Clinical about their products improperly uses scientific publications, clinical trials and research that are the exclusive property of PhytoCeuticals, Inc. and its founder, Dr. Mostafa Omar.

Dr. Mostafa Omar, PhytoCeutical’s president, is the highly respected developer and manufacturer of proprietary skin care formulations and the inventor of Stable Liquid L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C).

PhytoCeuticals has developed several formulations, including stabilized liquid L-Ascorbic Acid in 1994. The company had distributed these products through Cellex-C, SkinCeuticals and IS Clinical. PhytoCeuticals permitted these companies the use of these scientific publications, clinical trials and research citations to support the marketing of PhytoCeuticals formulations.

PhytoCeuticals terminated its relationship (July 1, 2008) with IS Clinical by Innovation Skincare (Science of Skincare Inc.). Therefore IS Clinical no longer distributes any products using PhytoCeuticals formulations.

Breast Lift not Enough Anymore

The Hospital Group has reported that during 2009, more than twice as many women have opted for a breast lift with implants, as opposed to just a breast lift.

A mastopexy or breast lift procedure suits women whose breasts may be pendulous as a result of a relaxation of the ligaments due to weight loss, age or having children. The actual size may be fine but the breasts have lost their volume and tone or the nipples may point downward. However, if extra volume is required then a breast uplift procedure may be combined with implants for the best overall result. This has become an increasingly popular method for rejuvenating the appearance of the breasts.

A spokesperson for The Hospital Group, said: “A breast uplift with implants has become more of a popular option with women wanting to increase the size of their chest as well as the shape”

Those looking to undergo the procedure are sure to achieve better results that ever before. Modern breast implants are available in a variety of types and sizes. You can easily achieve the look you are after with by consulting with one of the many expert surgeons available.

The Hospital Group is one of the UK’s leading providers of Plastic Surgery, number one in Obesity Surgery and Breast Enlargement experts. So whatever your requirements, you’re in safe hands!

Since The Hospital Group was established in 1992, it has risen to become the UK’s biggest weight loss surgery providers, performing more gastric band procedures last year than the NHS.

Dieters looking for a quick fix have been warned against popping mineral pills- after researchers found they increased the risk of heart disease.

The supplement selenium has been hailed by diet gurus as the miracle solution to shifting stubborn fat. The tablets contain antioxidants which some believe can also help to cut the chances of developing cancer.

But researchers at Warwick University found that too much selenium can cause cholesterol levels to rocket.

Using the mineral increased the risk of heart disease by 8 per cent and researchers have now called for a ban on the supplement. Although there is no speedy steps to lose weight, The Hospital Group can provide clear and concise advice for those wishing to undergo weight loss surgery.

The Hospital Group, the UK’s biggest provider of weightloss surgery, has seen a 73.9 per cent increase, with a staggering 12,848 people seeking surgery in 2008. In 2007, 7,385 people enquired into gastric procedures.

The surgery, including gastric band, gastric bypasses and gastric balloons can be used alongside liposculpture – also known as liposuction – and adominoplasty – the common tummy tuck– to sculpt and perfect your body and give you a healthier lifestyle.

The Hospital Group has reported that over the past 3 years, half of all women with implants are having their old breast implants replaced.

Breast enlargements, or “boob jobs” as they are more commonly known, are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available. This procedure helps women achieve a “curvier” form. It is popular with women who are naturally small busted or those that have noticed a change in their bust size due to weight loss, breastfeeding or the natural ageing process.

Regarding implant replacement, a spokesperson for The Hospital Group, said: “A lot of our breast augmentation patients wish they had gone a little bigger so therefore choose to have another procedure with larger implants. We also treat patients who have had a breast implants elsewhere and then choose The Hospital Group for their second procedure.”

Women who want to achieve the curvy yet classy and natural look can choose from a vast range of Allergan implants at The Hospital Group; including revolutionary Natrelle. With a range of over 500 implants in the Natrelle range, the patient has a choice of four projections and gel types as well as a number of textured and smooth surfaces, allowing a more natural and individual breast enhancement.


Medelita Introduces the Elizabeth B. Lab Coat

New 28-inch student-length lab coat answers customer demand for shorter style and is available for pre-order

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., November 10, 2009 — Medelita®, maker of breakthrough medical apparel, today introduced the new Elizabeth B. lab coat to its collection of high performance women’s lab coats. Shorter than traditional coats, the Elizabeth B. is 28 inches in length and falls just below the hip on a woman of average height. The new, shorter-length lab coat is available for pre-order and will be available to purchase online November 6, 2009.

“The introduction of the Elizabeth B. lab coat is a significant milestone for us in that it answers countless customer requests, expressing the need for a lab coat with modern styling, sensible performance fabric features and long-lasting durability,” said Lara Manchik, founder, Medelita. “We chose to name the coat in honor of Elizabeth Blackwell, the very first female medical school graduate who paved the way for women in field of medicine. This appellation also honors customers of Medelita who continue to make significant contributions in their respective medical professions.”

At the turn of the 19th century, female doctors did not exist. But Elizabeth Blackwell changed that with her inspiring life’s work. Education played an important role for Blackwell, whose father moved the family from England to the U.S. Motivated by the desire to fill the unmet needs of women who preferred to consult with a female physician, Blackwell eventually sought a formal education during a time when medical schools simply did not allow women. Her application to the Geneva Medical College in New York was inadvertently accepted because students and the administration thought it was a practical joke.
