Introducing the ReNue Radiance Program

We have been working very hard over the last few years trying to figure out what we can do to continually improve the results for our customers and the experience within our locations.  We listened hard, put our creative hats on, and came up with the ReNue Radiance Program, or “RRP.”  What we kept seeing was that “ReNuers” were not paying enough attention to their complexion as it ages and what we kept hearing was that they had great intentions to come in on a regular basis to keep their BOTOX or filler injections up-to-date, but life often was getting … Continue Reading

Treating Skin of All Colors

I was reflecting on what has changed in my 20 years of practicing cosmetic medicine, and one thing that has changed strikingly is the number of patients with skin of color that are seeking help with their aging skin.  By “skin of color,” I assume you know that I don’t mean tanned skin.  (I will save you the seminar on why tanning is brutal for your skin.)  Canada is becoming more ethnically diverse and it is reflected in our patients.

The Power of Looking and Feeling Younger

First of all, I want to thank everyone who recently attended our sales event.  It was great to see so many of our loyal customers and so many clients that we hadn’t seen for a while.  It is always a proud time for me to see all the staff working hard and connecting with our customers to make sure we are on track with their skin rejuvenation goals.  I also get a chance to spend more time just socializing which is rare in my days but I value highly. One conversation struck out to me from a customer that has been … Continue Reading
