Your Feelings are in Your Face

A patient testimonial by Emily Tepper:

Twice now I have come for treatment with Dr. Marmur and experienced exactly where beauty and wellness intersect. The drooping in my facial tissue was from difficult emotional experiences from my past.

But some of us don’t get to enjoy great hair days. Fifty six million Americans suffer from hair loss, also known as alopecia.

  Backstage at the Carmen Marc Valvo NYFW show! Lights, facial. . . and action. Everyone knows that behind a flawless red carpet complexion is great make-up and an even better skin-care regimen. Now, to preface this piece, I’ve been on my surgery rotation for the past two months and life has been a relentless “scrubs and Uggs” sort of deal. Since life has been rather mundane from a fashionista’s point of view, you can only imagine how excited I was to be invited to be a part of Carmen Marc Valvo’s show at New York Fashion Week and the
