It’s been almost five years since we first introduced the Skin Ceuticals Micropeel. It was just before Thanksgiving in 2014 and I had only worked here for five months. Our Skin Ceuticals rep at that time was Brittany, and we made fast friends. She actually got me into...

Our nurse practitioner, Jennifer, is a redhead and recently had lip injections with Gina. I went in to see how it was going and Jennifer said she didn’t think she could get through it. Gina had done about ONE injection! They had used both topical and injectable anesthe...

Over my life, I’ve done three rounds of Accutane: at 13, 27, and 33. Somehow I escaped cystic acne without any scars. I know not everyone is so lucky. My mom had terrible acne scars and I know it affected her self-esteem. She tried doing some intense laser treatments...

I generally try to wait until I'm back to "baseline" before I get my Botox injections. For me it's not necessarily the lines that stand out the most to me, but more the quality of my skin. It's an almost unidentifiable quality: am I dry? Am I tired? Is my texture bad?...
