Ep. 2 | Hyperpigmentation
29 min

Our skin is home to many tiny factories called melanocytes. They're responsible for producing the pigment that gives skin its color. But certain triggers like UV light can send those factories into overdrive, resulting in dark spots and discoloration known as hyperpigmentation. In this episode, Michelle shares a cautionary tale of some splotchy, unwanted mementos from one magical island vacation in her youth, and dermatologist Mona Gohara breaks down the best ingredients and in-office lasers to make them disappear.

How To Treat Dark Circles, Undereye Bags & Wrinkles With Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Lara Devgan
Last week in episode 144 we asked dermatologist Dr. Mamina Turegano to weigh in on all the non-invasive ways to treat dark circles, puffiness, under-eye bags and more. BUT we all know that there’s only so much an eye cream can do, and that’s why we invited Manhattan-based cosmetic surgeon Dr. Lara Devgan on the mic today to continue the conversation. She fills us in on everything there is to know about treating hooded eyelids, dark circles, puffiness, under-eye bags and more, including the #glowdown on costs/downtimes/potential risks when you go the surgical route. We learned so much (fox eye trend! fat transfers! plasma pens!), and know you will too.

Doree and Naomi bond over cozy mysteries, and they discuss how enjoying something does not make it self-care, whether an invitation automatically includes your SO, and how Jonathan Van Ness became her hairdresser.

Following your curiosity, with Mel Wiggins
