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

Treatment of the Lips Part 1 – The Aging Lip

The treatment of lips in the medical aesthetic world is the most controversial of subjects.  I am going to write a few blogs on the subject because I spend so much time treating lips and discussing lips with our clients.

Lips age from the natural loss of skin thickness and … Continue Reading

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

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

How Much Does It Cost to Turn Back the Clock?

It has taken me a long time to understand how to inject the face properly and I am still learning. The point is, that is has taken me 16 years to become one of the best injectors of facial filler across Canada.  16 years…. Don’t assume that whomever is injecting your facial filler knows what they are doing. Many injectors do not or will not have an honest discussion about how much filler it takes to give you the results you want. I touched on this in previous blogs about important questions to ask your injector.  This is an art, this … Continue Reading
