    20 Years a Cincinnati Magazine “TOP DOC”

    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.

    Mused after remembering the great Will Rogers phrase, “Most people are about as happy as they make up their mind to be.”

    Making Joys of Summer Last

    Many of us have days off this week to enjoy the 4th of July holiday. It’s a good opportunity to make memories and enjoy the time. Here’s how to make ourselves happier from a book by Laura Vanderkam.

    Enjoy the enjoyable! How? Savoring!

    Planning enjoyable experiences to look forward to can make the time before it happier. Personally, I like to plan my next trip during my current vacation so on the way home I have something to look forward to.

    Each day set aside a small amount of time to linger over something you enjoy like a good cup of coffee, visiting a park or calling a loved one. I enjoy reading the paper each morning to get my day started.

    Sharing good moments by describing them to someone else helps us remember and relive the experience more vividly than just looking over photos. Even experiences not fully enjoyed during the event are often viewed more fondly in retrospect.

    Lastly, even when an event doesn’t seem enjoyable such as putting a child to bed or going to work, stop and consider what would happen if you didn’t even have those experiences. Life goes by much too quickly.

    No one can enjoy every moment, but it is possible to enjoy enough.


    The very refreshing Bicicletta Cocktail: 3 ounces white wine, 1 1/2 ounces of Campari, ice and fill remainder of glass with soda water and add an orange wheel. Perfect for a hot day this week.


    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.


    Permanent Makeup?
    Micro-blading is a technique of applying permanent makeup to your eyebrows with individual strokes simulating individual hairs. We also do permanent eyeliner and lips.

    Cellfina, www.cellfina.com, is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least three years. The best candidate has dimpling that is not caused by loose skin. The benefits are a long-lasting, single, in-office treatment that usually takes under an hour. No general anesthesia is needed and downtime is limited in most cases to the day of treatment. 96% of patients were satisfied after two years.

    Facial Wrinkles?
    Vollure is the newest filler for fine wrinkles. It doesn’t project as much as Juvederm but is smoother and lasts up to 18 months. Volbella is a lip filler that DOES NOT exaggerate the lips but improves wrinkles and creases in the lips and the skin just above the lips. Studies show it lasts for about a year. Come in and see what it has done for Diane, Crystal and Dianna. Voluma augments the cheeks and lifts some of the lower tissues.

    Neck Bands or Hypersweating under Arms?
    Botox can help with both. Come in for a free consult.

    Weak Chin, Nasal Imperfections, Aging or Thin Earlobes?
    Juvederm plumps chins and earlobes and sometimes nasal imperfections.

    Fat under Chin?
    Kybella is an injected solution that melts the fat under your chin.

    Permanent Makeup?
    Micro-blading is a technique of applying permanent makeup to your eyebrows with individual strokes simulating individual hairs. We also do permanent eyeliner and lips.

    Lax Skin or Brown Spots?
    Collagen Induction Therapy or microneedling reduces facial pigmentation and improves wrinkles.

    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.


    Micropeels 3 for $235. Micropeels are individually $98. Limit one package of three per patient. This special will be over August 31.
