  • Understanding Scaly Skin

    By Darrel Arthurs, ARNP, DCNP Over the years, I have seen many people in the office asking about crusty Seborrheic keratosis (SK).

  • Transtheoretical Model for Change

    As healthcare providers and patient advocates, we are often faced with convincing our charges that a change is needed. Human nature is to resist change.

  • Clinicals and Your First Job

    I was recently speaking with a group of students who will be graduating this year about their current clinical rotations and how things are going. Many of the students had been at at least one of their clinical sites since beginning their programs and were now feeling quite comfortable.

  • Medical Skin Needling in Aesthetics

    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 every patient. Treatments that allow us to treat the skin safely and are a good alternative to ...

  • The Power of Mineral Makeup

    Patients often ask me what makeup I recommend. That's not the easiest question to answer. The most important thing is that you find a makeup that works well for your skin.
