  • Losing Purpose

    After reading my fellow colleague Elizabeth's blog I decided to tackle my grief. You see, my best friend and boyfriend of 11 years passed away last month.

    A crucial part of total acne therapy involves extractions of comedones at least once a month, depending on acne severity. Many dermatology offices offer acne facials performed by a medical esthetician.

  • Avoiding Burnout

    Seventeen months ago when I opened Pace Clinic I was excited to be out on my own. No more working for somebody, I could set my own hours, come and go as I please, and do my own thing.
