Comraderie

September 25, 2009

Last night I hosted the first ever Peels To The People Open House.  It was so fun!  You never know how many people will show up at events so when I looked out at a sea of smiling faces, it was gratifying to see clients (new and established) checking it out.  I see it’s all about connection.  You’ll find an aesthetician on every corner in this town so when they come to you year after year (after year), you know something special is going on.  Thank you, thank you….whatever I give to you, you return in spades.

9/11

September 11, 2009

We all remember where we were on 9/11/2001.  I was working for a dermatologist in Portland at the time and we had a full day of patients.  Everyone who came in that day had a story to tell and it wasn’t about their skin.  One patient hadn’t heard from her brother who was a pilot for United.  One patient had a friend of a friend who worked in Tower 2.  Several patients were about to embark on long-awaited trips to exotic places and wondered if they should go. 

Between patient visits and sneaking a peak at the television, it was an endless  day of  tragedy, sadness, anger and uncertainty.   As the days wore on, still not much smalltalk about skin.  It all came down to perspective, didn’t it.  And it still does.

After Labor Day

September 8, 2009

Is it just me or do you get excited about all of the possibilities following Labor Day?  School starting, fall colors coming, the holidays on a roll, one right after another.  Lots of clients start new skin care programs in the fall because it seems that they can concentrate more than during the summer.  The fall is a great time to get a series of peels and LED light treatments.  They naturally go hand in hand to achieve smoother, softer, dare we say silkier skin.  And now with microcurrent, toning can be achieved too.  Isn’t fall great!

Football and Bald Heads

September 5, 2009

Today I attended the OSU/PSU football game in Corvallis.  When the rain finally stopped and fans started shedding clothing, I couldn’t help but notice the remarkable bald head in  front of me.  This belonged to an older gentleman who had obviously had a lot of sun damage to his bald scalp.  It had a scaly, blistered appearance and I immediately  thought Epionce Medical Barrier Cream.  It could no doubt help the gentleman heal his blisters a little faster.  That and sunblock of course.  Go Beavs!

Plan Ahead
