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.

Why choose ReNue for laser treatments? We have a boatload of different lasers at all the ReNue locations which allows us to address every major skin care need.  One of the first lasers I purchased cost more than my first house.  No joke…It wasn’t a great house, but it wasn’t a dump either.  I have written blogs on many of the different lasers that we have and what they do, but I want to deviate from what lasers do and talk about how to choose a laser skin rejuvenation clinic.  In other words, why choose ReNue for laser treatments?

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
