The Importance of Research Before Scheduling Your Laser Treatment – Part 2

Why choose ReNue for laser treatments? I am pretty revved up on this topic and I wanted to continue my thoughts on things to ponder and questions to ask before you choose a laser skin rejuvenation clinic. Here is another question to ponder: Does the laser clinic have their own before and after photographs? Many laser clinics use stock photographs from the laser companies and I have even seen photographs in advertisements that were not even done with the laser they’re advertising.  At ReNue, we have company brochures with some stock photos from the laser company, but we also have … Continue Reading

The Importance of Research Before Scheduling Your Laser Treatment – Part 1

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?

Deep Skin Hydration: A New Concept in Anti-Aging

There are many new products that come and go in the anti-aging world, but one new product has really resonated with me.

How Juvéderm Can Treat the Aging Lip

So, one of the most common personal questions I get asked during my consultations are if I get lip filler.  I have naturally been blessed with good lip volume through family genetics, so the answer is no… I have never had my lips injected with filler.  That reminds me of a blog I should write about things that I do to keep my skin looking its best.  But I digress… I wanted to be more specific on how Juvéderm VOLUMA filler can be used to improve the aging lip.  On your initial visit, we like to do full cosmetic consultations.   … Continue Reading
