Dermatologist Noëlle Sherber, M.D., F.A.A.D. was quoted in the Washingtonian about the increasing trend for men to get filler in their jawlines. She said, “People in Washington want to have an authoritative appearance, but one that suits their own face. They tend to be most of all interested in how to look like themselves a few years prior.”
Jaw-defining filler products are on the rise as the procedure gets more popular. Voluma is a filler made from smooth hyaluronic acid. Filler for male jawlines has been gaining in popularity because it can restore men’s confidence in their appearance by turning back the clock a few years – with no downtime. 50-year-old DC interior designer Paul Sherrill, a patient of Dr. Sherber’s, said, “It really to me has been a wow effect. It’s one of those things that I’m left with immediate gratification.”
Dr. Sherber explained a factor behind the rising popularity of male jaw fillers. “It can look like you have jowls along the face when you don’t in real life. I’ll have patients bring screen shots of how they look on camera and say, ‘What is happening with my face and neck?’”Continue reading
Dermatologist Noëlle S. Sherber, M.D., F.A.A.D. was quoted in Harper’s Bazaar in an article on how to make the most of facial injectables. Dr. Sherber recommended incorporating moisturizers with glycerin and hyaluronic acid prior to injections, since it will “dovetail off the internal hydrating effects of the injected hyaluronic acid fillers and enhance the skin-smoothing results of Botox."
Dr. Sherber also recommended caution with certain medications before injecting: “I advise my patients to discontinue non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, as well as fish oil supplements and the four Gs—gingko, ginger, garlic, and ginseng—two weeks prior to the procedure unless medically necessary.”
Salt is a huge no-no, especially with dermal fillers. Dr. Sherber said, "Injectable fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, which pulls in water, so loading up on salty foods beforehand can make you look more swollen the day after your procedure.”Continue reading

Having completely clean skin is the foundation for having great skin, and this dynamic duo gives you the deep clean result of a spa treatment at home... no appointment necessary.
FOREO’s top of the line LUNA 2 Professional ultrasonic cleansing brush generates up to 8,000 transdermal sonic pulses per minute for exceptional cleansing. This Swedish innovation is an upgraded version of the original device with a larger surface area for cleansing the skin, and is suitable for all skin types. Dermatologist Dr. Noëlle Sherber recommends silicone cleansing brushes specifically, because "the microscopically smooth surface can be kept completely clean and won’t harbor bacteria which can lead to breakouts and skin inflammation."
The Honey Mud gives an experience unlike any other, with a sweet scent from natural oils of macadamia nut, cocoa, sweet orange, ylang-ylang and vanilla. These oils, along with raw honey and a blend of clays, will leave even the driest skin feeling healed and nourished. This dual purpose cleanser can either be massaged into damp skin and rinsed clean or applied to dry skin for 10-20 minutes as a mask. As an at-home deep cleansing treatment Dr. Sherber recommends applying it as a mask, dampening the skin, and then buffing with the FOREO to remove completely and enhance absorption of the active ingredients.
Dry airplane air and traveling between climates can be a recipe for skin that's out of sorts. Here are some travel skincare tips I share with patients, as well as product picks to keep with you in your carry-on. These essentials include gentle but effective hand sanitizer and blemish spot treatments, as well as solid cleansers and moisturizers which not only won't spill in transit and make a mess of your luggage but also won't count towards the infamous TSA "ziplock" baggie of liquids.
Eve Lom Cleanser
This cleanser, described by Anna Wintour, Editor in Chief of Vogue, as "probably the best cleanser in the world," is remarkably effective. The proprietary blend of oils (Egyptian chamomile, eucalyptus, clove, and hops) cleanses deeply because oil dissolves best in oil: this melts away even waterproof sunscreens, which is great for active vacations. The formulation emulsifies and turns milky when removed with the accompanying muslin cloth and warm water, leaving skin feeling soft and perfectly clean. One of the common post-travel skin concerns I see among patients is skin irritation from hotel towels, so I suggest traveling with these muslin cloths or your own washcloths if you have sensitive skin since hotel detergents can be harsh and cause eczema from the commercial-grade chemical residue.
Hand sanitizer is a must when traveling, since saying healthy needs to be a priority. The FDA has now banned antibacterial ingredient triclosan from rinse-off hand soaps, but, interestingly, not from leave-on hand sanitizers. Triclosan can cause hand eczema and I recommend that it be avoided. This Australian formula is triclosan-free, and instead relies on sugarcane alcohol. To balance out the drying effects of the alcohol, it incorporates a blend of natural essential oils (ginger, tangerine, lemon myrtle, niaouli, orange, basil, grapefruit, and cardamom), which make it pleasant to use without lessening its efficacy.
May Lindstrom The Blue Cocoon
This unique product is a facial oil in solid form so it is another great carry-on product that won't count as a liquid in your carry-on. It is handmade in L.A. without preservatives or synthetic fragrance, and so is excellent for sensitive skin types, and derives its distinctive color from blue tansy oil which has renowned soothing properties. In an interview with SHERBER+RAD, May Lindstrom said that The Blue Cocoon "was the formula I dreamed about my whole life and the one I am most proud of and personally attached to" and it has garnered an intensely loyal following based on the intensely nourishing results it delivers. You can apply it anywhere that needs extra moisture, such as hands, cuticles, or lips, and can reapply throughout the flight if skin feels parched. It is also an excellent vacation companion to soothe chapped skin whether from skiing or jetskiing.
Indie Lee Blemish Stick
The airplane restroom has such notoriously harsh light and can make it tempting to attempt self-surgery on nonexistent blemishes that appear in the mirror there. This spot treatment is a much better idea. It's an invisible quick-drying clear gel with a wand applicator that can be dotted on spots, and the formula is so sheer that it can be applied over or under makeup. The potent blend of salicylic and glycolic acids, along with natural acne-fighters zinc, camphor, witch hazel, and sulfur, shrinks acne quickly and effectively without over-drying the skin and causing a peeling spot which can be more unsightly than the blemish itself. It's always good to have a spot treatment on hand while you're traveling in case a blemish arises as an unwelcome visitor, and this one is discrete enough to keep with you: just be sure not to confuse the chic packaging with a lip gloss!
Crème de La Mer
This moisturizer has a legendary following due to its skin-soothing properties, and, since it's a solid texture at room temperature it's an ideal choice for your carry-on. Sea water minerals are very calming to the skin, and this formula combines them with a blend of oils - including sesame seed oil and eucalyptus leaf oil - which is renowned for its ability to repair the skin's barrier, so this is good for cushioning the skin against arid airplane cabin air. To apply, be sure to warm the product between your fingers until it becomes translucent and then press gently into the skin. You can apply a generous additional layer mid-flight if skin feels dry and you'll be amazed how much skin will absorb before landing.
