Skin Care Tip
Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate. Get those dead, dry cells off your face so that your products are easily absorbed—and so your skin glows!
Favorite Med Spa Treatment
It’s a tie between dermal fillers and the aesthetic peel. Exfoliation is the key to glowing skin. The aesthetic peel is a little more aggressive to help brighten and smooth skin. Dermal fillers (like Juvéderm, Perlane, etc.) help with deep folds while adding volume for a more youthful appearance—with no downtime.

My Favorite Client Transformation Stories
Last spring, an 80-something woman came in with her daughter to “freshen up” for her granddaughter’s wedding. I treated her with dermal fillers for volume to cheeks, her deep naso-labial folds and marionette lines. She was so pleased afterwards. The filler gave her the little lift she needed for the special day.
A beautiful woman in her mid-50’s complained of “sun spots” all over her face and hands. Just one treatment with Broadband Light removed all of them, leaving her face clear and fresh. She almost cried with joy. She now uses sunblock every day for prevention.
My Greatest Challenge
Explaining to patients that they might be best served by meeting one of our surgical consultants to explore surgical solutions for the results they desire.
What I Love Most About My Work
I love making my patients happy! Everyone needs a little freshening up sometimes. The best gift of my job is seeing my patients smiling when they leave. It may seem superficial to some, but when you look in the mirror and see improvement (from when you came in), it’s an uplifting experience. I’m glad I can be part of that process.
