A Year of Caring…

Elevation cares is something we established last year.

The goal of our first year was to give two local, non-profit charitable causes.  We pledged that if our patients would leave a review on our social networks, or Google, we would donate $3 per feedback.  Our patients came through for us.  We were able to contribute to Weirton’s “Shop with a Cop” and the Brooke County Animal Shelter last year.

Our second year was not a disappointment.  This year we extended our program, and donations were made to the following four charities. We couldn’t be more proud.

WEIRTON COMMUNITY BREAD BASKET

The Community Bread Basket provides utility assistance, rent assistance, Food Pantry, Gabriel Room, Information Referral to the needy of Brooke and Hancock Counties in West Virginia. They are a wonderful charity that provides food to many families in the area.

Merlin’s Safe Haven Cat Rescue

Merlin’s Safe Haven Cat Rescue has been established to provide for the rescue, care, and placement of cats that have been abandoned, neglected, abused or which cannot be kept by their previous owner(s). Cats adopted through Merlin’s Safe Haven Cat Rescue are placed exclusively as indoor family pets. All cats are altered and vaccinated prior to adoption. All cats are currently kept in foster homes; therefore, Merlin’s Safe Haven Cat Rescue feels more knowledgeable about the cat and can help a prospective adopting family make the best decision adding a new family member for themselves as well as the cat.

Make a Wish/ PA and WV

The Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia chapter has grown steadily with the help of caring people who volunteer their time and support. Thirteen wishes were fulfilled in the first year. Now, 36-years later, more than 19,000 wishes have been completed. At any given time, there are between 300 and 450 wishes pending. They are the first chapter in the world to fulfill more than 700 wishes in one year.

Annual Memorial Coat Drive for Adam Morris

There is an annual coat drive in memory or Adam Morris, a young man who unexpectedly passed away in a car accident.  His family is keeping his memory alive by collecting coats, hats, and scarves for children in his honor.

We feel honored to be able to participate in these charities, and we urge you to click on the links and donate if you feel moved to do so.  They are wonderful charities and would benefit from anything you could give.

We will continue to give to our Elevation Cares charities and are excited to see what next year brings.

The Skin-ny on Dry Skin

Spring can be a great time to restore your dry winter skin.  Your skin is the largest organ of the body but it is made up of many tiny cells that consist mostly of water.  During the winter, when the air is dry and salt is on the roads, the water is depleted from our skin cells which cause our skin to be dry, tight, itchy and flakey, which can sometimes lead to wrinkles down the road.

Every minute, we shed about 30-40 thousand dead cells off the surface of our skin, more if your skin is especially dry.  In just the time it took you to read this, you’ve shed about 20,000 skin cells.  So what can we do to help?  Drink water, and lots of it!

Do you wonder why it seems like drinking water is at the root of every diet, workout and skin regime? That’s because it works! Your organs need it to function. For the most part, the more water you drink, the easier it will be to keep your skin healthy, retain elasticity, and help fight signs of aging, not to mention it is great for your weight loss plan!

In the winter, we tend to put on heavy creams and ointments to help fight off the damages caused by the winter wind. Spring, however, means lighter lotions, specifically those with some SPF.   Keep an eye out for products that double as moisturizers and UV barriers to protect the skin.  Sunflower oil and Vitamin E work as emollients that trap moisturizers inside the skin cells and keep them hydrated.  Alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy also help replenish dry skin.  Glycolic Acid is also great to remove dead skin cells that can leave you with glowing skin.

Following these tips are a sure way to get healthy and replenished skin!

**Units of Botox vary from person to person.  Some patients have larger facial muscles than others and will require more Botox to get the same effect and longevity of results.  Men tend to have larger and stronger facial muscles than women and men almost always require more Botox. Some patients will metabolize their Botox faster than others and will require more Botox units.  Some patients are very sensitive to Botox and will require fewer Botox units for the same desired effect. The right amount of Botox for you takes some trial and error between you and your injector.
