Two years in the making. Extensive market research and testing. A goal to become THE beauty sites for all consumers interested in self-improvement. Project Beauty has the backing of one the leading medical authorities in Beauty - The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
But why does the world need MORE health and beauty information?
With the plethora of information out there, we have yet to find one source for all things beauty that is vetted through the leading authorities in their fields, that presents only safe and effective options and answers to 2200 board-certified plastic surgeons. That source is Project Beauty. Women and men have told us of their confusion: what treatments work? Which don’t? How can we tell if a product is legitimate or just marketing hype?
Project Beauty cuts through the clutter.
What about beauty news? What are the latest trends, fashions, beauty treatment options?
Project Beauty draws from experts as diverse as Steven Rice, of Samuel Shriqui Salon to Lisa Young, Ph.D., R.D., C.D.N. a nationally recognized nutrition consultant who has been counseling adults and children for more than 15 years. Instead of giving up the foods you love. If you’re looking for fashion, news and beauty treatments, we’ve got you covered.
But isn’t this just a plastic surgery site?
A resounding NO! Although brought to you by the world’s leading medical society for cosmetic surgery, NO doctors are featured on our site, NO inference is made to pursue plastic surgery options and No revenues are derived by physicians. Our Advisory Boards include experts from the entire spectrum of health and beauty.
