Is spring your favorite season? For POSTES designer Claudine Sorel, it's a time for new life, new colors and new styles.

Sorel seduces us with her new collection, a chic interpretation of the traditional leather mailbag worn by members of the French postal service.

This season, she continues with her signature combinations of luxurious leathers, adding some luscious new shades:  deep royal blue with a sharp lime green interior, jet black gloss with a lemon trim, Seville orange with silver grey fur and jade lambskin interior, and peach with a custard cream finish.

Although these new models are released just in time for spring, Sorel says, “I don’t follow the fashion trend seasons because POSTES is totally unconventional, timeless and adaptable to anyone, at any time and for any occasion.”

POSTES très French designs, as sophisticated as its designer, are handmade in Claudine Sorel's New York City atelier.

The designer's newest, limited edition collection of POSTES creations is now available online here

A Growing Trend: Botox in Men

February 20, 2014

Men are a fas-growing segment of the cosmetic surgery population, representing approximately 10% of all cosmetic procedures. They are particularly interested in minimally invasive cosmetic procedures that can produce immediate results without postoperative recovery.  Botulinum toxin injections fit the bill and have become the single most common cosmetic procedure in men, accounting for nearly 37% of all cosmetic procedures performed in the United States.  Over the last several years, men have increasingly used botulinum toxin to reduce facial wrinkling, with a 314% rise since 2000-- totaling 389,569 injections in 2012.

Despite the increased interest in botulinum toxin, the scientific data regarding its use in men is lacking. A recent review published in the journal, Dermatologic Surgery, by Georgetowners Dr. Terrence Keaney and Dr. Tina Alster of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Surgery examined all of the available data on the use of botulinum toxin in men. They found that despite gender differences in facial anatomy, the use of botulinum toxin in men is inadequately studied. Out of the hundreds of studies reviewed, only three studies examined the impact of gender on dosing, efficacy and safety of botulinum toxin.  Those studies demonstrated that men require higher doses, but had no increase in adverse events.

Drs. Keaney and Alster are convinced that science needs to catch up with male interest in all cosmetic procedures- not only botulinum toxin.  That was one of the reasons why they founded W for Men, the nation’s first cosmetic and laser surgery center for men.  They hope to add to the scientific knowledge on cosmetic procedures in men by conducting clinical studies, starting with a botulinum toxin dosing study this Spring.
