Our culture teaches us that beauty is subjective and “lies in the eye of the beholder.” In the past, beautification was considered a luxury and meant breaking the bank on the latest coveted techniques and products. Now virtually anyone, regardless of their income, can access a plethora of products and services—from skincare cream to plastic surgery. Modern beauty science has given people everywhere, and of any age amazing new ways to take control of their appearance, allowing them to decide which products and services enhance their personal beauty inside and out.

Beautification is a universal and timeless ritual, traced back centuries to ancient Egypt and Greece. Wanting to look and feel beautiful is truly a core human desire.

When you take care of yourself on the inside, your outside naturally looks good! Although Dr. Tess and Dr. Brian use different techniques and technologies, the cosmetic dermatologist and the wellness coach, work hand in hand to offer viewers a personal transformation more complete than you ever thought possible.
