• Diary Communication Treat for Those Who Haven’t Had Fillers Patient Appreciation: Liposuction discounts up to 30%! Grilled Vegetables and New Way to Eat Fruit

    The company Allergan is running a promotion for patients who have never had one of their Juvederm fillers. They are offering a deep discount on fillers OR a complimentary dose of Botox with a filler injection. This offer is limited to the first ten patients who make a reservation to attend an information session with our Allergan representative on Thursday, August 9 between 11am and 1pm at our office. This promotion is by appointment only. Please call the office to schedule your appointment. (The injection will be scheduled at a later date with the special pricing.)

    Patient Appreciation: For the month of August, anyone coming in for a micropeel will receive a free mask during the peel. Also, anyone scheduling a micropeel in July or August will be put in a drawing for a free micropeel and products.

    Liposuction Special: One site (eg. tummy, lateral thighs, or neck) will be 10% off, two sites 20% and three or more sites, 30% off of the surgeon’s fee. Consultation appointments must occur between now and August 31, 2018 and surgery performed before September 30, 2018. Liposuction recuperation in most cases is modest allowing you to continue to enjoy your summer! Some restrictions apply.

    Diary Communication

    The article focuses on getting teens to communicate with their parents but can be applied to any relationship that involves reluctance to discuss. By writing down subjects, activities, and thoughts, it provides a safer environment to share with another. It also allows time between to further consider an appropriate response.

    The communication involves each person writing down a response, thought or suggestion to what the other has written. It must be kept to the two of you so that both feel safe to share. Start small by using notes perhaps in lunchboxes or on pillows. Once the diary has begun, decide how frequently there should be a response. Once a week is a good aim.

    Remember this is about building a relationship and is not about only one person. It should also show balance between the two writing in it leveling the differences say, between a parent and a child. Also, it should not be a venue for a parent to air their dirty laundry to their children.

    LA DOLCE VITA

    The crux of this is to cut melons in half and add some form of alcohol with balance between the two. Depending on the melon you can add port, prosecco/champagne and with watermelons vodka, Sambuca or a mix of tequila and Cointreau. I did it more simply by using a cantaloupe and adding a slightly sweet red wine. Scoop out melon and wine with a spoon.

    Do you have unsightly brown spots on your face, hands or body?

    SkinCeuticals (many of you use their skincare products) has developed a “pen” that uses cryotherapy or freezes age and sun spots as well as skin tags. It uses carbon dioxide which freezes the superficial part of the skin at -79 degrees C. The technique is similar to when family physicians and dermatologists use liquid nitrogen to treat skin cancers.

    The procedure takes just a few minutes. The area is cleansed then sprayed with CO2 to freeze the spot. There is very little if any temporary discomfort. Immediately after, Vitamin C is applied and so can makeup. Vitamin C and a sunscreen are encouraged and should be applied while healing.

    The lesion will get darker and possibly scab before it sheds. It can take 7-21 days to shed completely. Healthy pink skin or lightening of the dark spot will appear. Maturation of the skin then follows the normal skin cycle of 6 weeks.

    If the spot is appropriate, we charge $150 for the first three spots then $30 for each thereafter.

    Leg Veins?
    Sclerotherapy improves spider veins in your legs.

    SKIN CARE SPECIAL:

    Micropeels 3 for $235. Micropeels are individually $98. Limit one package of three per patient.
