Let’s Talk about Necks – Part 1

I realized that I have a lot to say about necks, so this will be a two-part series.  In the first part, I will try to explain why aging skin on the neck is so difficult to treat and what we have done in the past.  The second part will be where I think the future is headed. During Oscar season I think a lot about the aging neck.  If some of the wealthiest and most beautiful people in the world wear elegant scarves to cover up their aging necks, what chance do the rest of us have? I get … Continue Reading

One conversation struck out to me from a customer that has been … Continue Reading

The Problem with Politeness

This might be a blog more about friends and difficult conversation than medical aesthetics, but here goes.  I was at a talk given by a famous childhood psychologist a few years back and I remember one comment he made that stuck with me.  It went something like this. “The down fall of Canadian parenting is rooted in traditional British politeness.” This was of course coming from an Italian psychologist!  His point was that we are often too polite for our own good.  Kids understand direct, “un-polite,” commands from parents that are not laced with too many pleases and thank yous.  … Continue Reading
