In 2014, the men's personal care market was up 6.7 percent from 2012 and 19 percent from 2009, making it one of the fastest-growing segments of the entire beauty industry! Despite having thicker skin and the need to maintain facial hair, men and women’s skin share many of the same maladies that require a diligent skincare routine including uneven tone and texture, redness, dryness, oiliness, and fine lines and wrinkles -- just to name a few. For men who are ready to invest in a skincare routine, Monarch Skin Rejuvenation Center now has a great 4-step Obagi kit available for purchase that is ideal for all skin types.

Breast reconstruction is a great option for women who have overcome breast cancer to renew their self-confidence after losing one or both breasts. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there has been a steady annual growth in breast reconstruction surgery over the years with a 39 percent increase in the number of procedures since 2000. Despite this increase, less than half of women who require mastectomy are currently offered breast reconstruction surgery, and only 23 percent understand the wide range of breast reconstruction options available to them. In order to address this, the plastic surgeons at Monarch Plastic Surgery want to help breast cancer survivors be fully aware of their options for breast reconstruction, so they can look and feel as beautiful as possible.
