Skin Care Tip
Schedule periodic follow-up appointments with your skin care provider for review and new information. Advancements in technology and research are continually bringing about new treatment modalities and products.
Favorite Med Spa Treatment
Fraxel® laser resurfacing and photo rejuvenation are two of my favorite treatments due to the dramatic results in the skin condition after a treatment series.
Research is an ongoing part of my field. I frequently attend webinars provided by our various laser technology companies and read various publications including:
American Journal of Aesthetic Medicine
Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology
Journal of Drugs in Dermatology
Cosmetic Dermatology Products and Procedures by Zoe Diana Draelos M.D.
My Top 3 Client FAQs
- What kind of down-time will I experience?
- How long will the effect of the treatment last?
- What are the latest in skin care products?
My Favorite Client Transformation Stories
I don’t have a favorite. Every patient sees their issue of concern as important. Whether it be mild or severe, I address them all with the same care and consideration. The reward to me is a happy patient.
My Greatest Challenge
Patients who don’t comply with the post treatment instructions. They are so important in order to achieve best results.
What I Love Most About My Work

We are all focused on the same objective here, which is to provide our patients with the best care possible while making them feel right at home.
