EP 154 - Holistic Plastic Surgery
With the prevalence of social media, we often see images of celebrities and influencers with perfect skin and bodies. This has altered our perception of beauty and age, and many women feel like they can’t keep up.

Some women turn to plastic surgery, but many who attempt to lead a holistic life would rather leave surgery as a last resort. 

Dr. Anthony Youn shares tips for how to maintain young and healthy looking skin. He encourages eating well, exercising, limiting stress, and being mindful of what you put on your skin. He notes that there are thousands of chemicals in skincare products that are legal in the U.S. but banned in Europe, and women should skip these products in favor of clean products. 

He also shares his "Two Minutes, Five Years Younger" skincare regimen, which includes:

  • Cleanser that’s appropriate for your skin type 
  • An antioxidant serum with vitamin C and vitamin E 
  • Sunscreen (SPF 30 or more) without hormone disruptors 

  • Cleanser that’s appropriate for your skin type 
  • Anti-aging retinol cream
  • Moisturizer (if you have dry skin)

Dr. Youn also covers various types of non-invasive surgery such as intensive pulsed light for age, sun, and liver spots, and cool sculpting, laser sculpture, and Emscuplt for fat reduction and muscle shaping. 

Listen as Dr. Youn joins Dr. Taz to discuss holistic plastic surgery.
