Let’s Talk about Necks – Part 2

Thank you for all the response to my first blog and appointments booked. Now comes the stuff I am particularly excited about: here is the future of necks. These procedures will help the neck with some sagging and skin laxity, but also, a more preventative mind-set will be the key to the aging neck. Here are some thoughts: PRP with Dermapen micro-needling: We are very excited about the results with this technique on the face and are now starting to use it on the neck.  There is no reason that we shouldn’t be able to achieve safe and reliable skin … Continue Reading

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.

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

Wanna Feel Less Tired?

I don’t know about you, but one of the most annoying things a person can say to me is… ”you look tired.”  I might be having the best day ever and on top of the world and all of a sudden, I feel more tired.  My energy goes down and I want to go rest.  The thing is that a look of tiredness is not even your fault.  As humans we often perceive tiredness by a heaviness in the eyes and dark circles or bags under the eyes.   This tends to be genetic.  Of course, it is made worse by … Continue Reading
