The decision to get any type of facelift is a big one. And it rarely happens overnight. More often than not, our patients have been toying with the idea for a few years before finally picking up the phone to make an appointment for a QuickLift facelift consultation.
Does this scenario sound familiar?
You catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror—and (yikes!) you DON’T recognize that person. Or, you Read more

You might think that because I am the Director of Marketing at The Skin Center, I’m used to (or have even done) all the different treatments. Not so! Just like so many of our clients, I too, am curious about which products, treatments and services are right for me.
Being a freckly-faced red-head, I have lived my life with a not-so-clear-complexion. And on top of that, I’ve had my fair share of sunburn and hormonal acne (really!?) So when the marketing team and I started talking about the benefits of a Read more

After several months of treatments—alternating between Intense Pulsed Light (IPL and Chemical Peels on the right side of my face and Fraxel on the left side of my face, Nellie and I are finished with our Sun Damage Recovery experiment.
I’ve now had a series of three treatments on each side of my face plus Fraxel on my neck and upper chest (decollatage) area.
In my particular case, Fraxel gave us the most dramatic overall results, although IPL was also extremely effective at removing patches of hyperpigmentation. As you can see when zooming in Read more

Treatment for sun damage—with a bonus!
As mentioned in my previous post, I was lucky enough to choosing between the top two technologies available for the treatment of hyperpigmentation—Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Fraxel Laser Resurfacing.
After a consultation with my provider, Nellie Sicher, RN, we decided to do BOTH—in order to show our patients which treatment works best for my Read more
Real treatment for sun damage?
Sign me up! Faced with the good fortune of choosing between the top two technologies available for the treatment of hyperpigmentation—Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Fraxel Laser Resurfacing—I had a tough decision to make.
Or did I?
After some serious discussion with the experts at The Skin Center about the benefits of each technology, I did something rather unconventional. I chose BOTH. I thought it would be beneficial for our patients to see the results of both treatments on the same face—mine. So I offered up the right side of my Read more

Kate. Kate. Kate. Three cheers to Kate Upton for proudly owning her curves.
The two-time cover model for Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue isn’t your typical stick thin runway model.
Her va-va-voom shape however has drawn criticism from those who dare to call her “porky” and “fat” on celebrity trainer David Kirsch’s Facebook page.
Granted…runway thin, she is not. But that’s a welcome change, isn’t it? Apparently Sports Illustrated thinks so. And the ranks of Victoria Secrets, Mercedes Benz, Guess, Dourney & Bourke, Sam Edelman and Accessorize would agree.
