November 26, 2014 3:51 PM by Kimberly Cray
I couldn't help but notice that a PA colleague of mine had a beautiful display on her medical suite counter. No frilly flowers or fancy vases. This was a simple, yet chic, display of a vibrantly modern grass. Yes, you read correctly. Grass. Not only did Read More...

Skincare on a Budget
July 2, 2013 12:35 PM by Kimberly Cray
Quality skincare does not have to come at a steep price. If you splurge in some important areas (that benefit you the most) you may need to skimp a little in other departments and that is okay. Let's call this skincare on a budget, if you will. SKIMP: Read More...

Healthy Tan? No Such Thing
April 9, 2013 4:46 PM by Kimberly Cray
Working in medicine, specifically dermatology, we know there is no such thing as a "healthy tan." When it comes to educating younger generations, I wish the effects of sun were immediate. I wish when a young girl stepped out of the tanning bed she saw Read More...

Medical Skin Needling in Aesthetics
July 17, 2012 11:38 AM by Kimberly Cray
As providers we know the deeper we dive into the dermis, the greater the risk of potential side effects, sometimes including permanent adverse changes to the skin. I am a fan of options. There is no cookie-cutter treatment protocol we can follow with Read More...

Great (or Not So Great) Expectations
June 29, 2012 2:18 PM by Kimberly Cray
I often wonder if all providers really find it important to let patients know what to expect. I always ask at the time of consultation, and certainly before I begin a procedure, whether the patient has any questions. Yes, to remove a mole or skin tag Read More...

Tips for Bright Eyes
March 6, 2012 8:54 AM by Kimberly Cray
Think bright eyes. Big bright eyes. The kind that get attention, gain our trust and get the job done. Now we are all aware that we lose collagen as we age, and the delicate tissue around the eyes is no exception. As the skin thins, blood beneath the skin Read More...
