A Personal Story of Inspiration

Every day at ReNue, I feel very privileged that I get small glimpses into our patients’ lives.  Today, I want to share a personal journey that really got my attention over the last few months. I often feel very inspired by our patients. Thanks to them, I am reminded of the benefits of feeling more confident and empowered in one’s life.  We hope and believe that ReNue plays a role in helping our patients achieve inner and outer wellbeing. A Patient’s Inspiration I was introduced to a patient by one of my nurses the other day.  This patient had just … Continue Reading

How Do You Know When You Have Found Your Medical Aesthetic Home?

Here at ReNue, we are very excited to be working on a new practice management system that will improve our patient care even more, but it begs the question, “How do you know when you have found the right place to address your aesthetic needs?” In order to answer this question, I recommend asking yourself the following questions.

The Low-Down on Hormonal Acne: Save Your Money!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year’s celebration. We had a great Christmas celebration at ReNue. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and supporting ReNue over the years. I am very grateful for all of you. I want to kick off the New Year with the exciting topic of hormonal acne. I see so many people trying to treat this type of acne with topical skin products. I would venture a guess that the average female spends more than $2,000 on skin products before coming to one of our Airdrie, Downton Calgary, and Seton dermatology … 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
