Times Union: Extended Eye Appeal

Originally published in the Times Union  “You have beautiful eyes,” said the cashier, scanning my stack of greeting cards and a container of Tums.

My peepers are the color of an angry storm cloud right before the weather breaks, and my (short) eyelashes a mousy blonde with light tips. Pair that with serious dark circles thanks to allergies and a husband who is a restless sleeper, and you’ll … Continue reading

Times Union: Get fuller-looking lips … and without the blood

Originally published in the Times Union Many regular people want to look like celebrities and will go to often ridiculous measures to get there. Right now, women want Kylie Jenner’s lips and they’re using a shot glass to get them. That’s right, a shot glass that they put to their lips and suck on (all the while posting the process to social media and tagging it #KylieJennerChallenge). And then, voila, they’re a Kylie Jenner doppelganger. Or the glass breaks and they end up cut and bleeding. Sounds sexy, huh? Kylie herself is not condoning this method.

Times Union: Do-it-yourself approach to spooky looks

Originally published by Kristi Barlette of the Times Union.      You have the perfect costume picked out for Halloween. We’re talking a look that will have people wanting to pose for selfies with you — and then posting those images to social media where they’ll get more “likes” than trick-or-treaters will get candy. But an enviable look is about more than the clothes you put on. Oftentimes, a made-up face is what really takes your costume from #fine to #fabulous.  A session with a professional makeup artist can cost as much as, if not more than, your costume. And securing … Continue reading

Late last year, The Plastic Surgery Group relocated from Washington Avenue in Albany to Patroon Creek Corporate Center, an office park at 455 Patroon Creek Blvd. Spa services have become more prominent within plastic surgery, said Jeffrey Rockmore, one of the six doctors at the office, and so part of the office is called Spa One.
