On top of that, keeping up with the most up-to-date research to support my clinical practice was hard, too.

  • "I Hate My Neck"

    Looking in the mirror at submental (under the chin) fat, loose, crepey, puckered skin and tight platysmal bands going down the neck can have a psychological impact. Loss of the definition of the jawline and neck can be from a genetic predisposition, weight gain or aging. It is generally considered aesthetically unappealing. Most seem to be aware ...

It has been highlighted in the news media, conversations and, of course, the hearts of the many fans of the late actor.

Thermage, a non-surgical procedure utilizing mono-polar radiofrequency, provided an option for those wanting to avoid the surgery.

  • It's Not Always About the Medicine

    From August 3-8, I went away to Boy Scout Camp to work as the nurse for the week. This is the first year we have been involved in the organization with my six year old son and the first year that we decided to send him away to resident camp. The mom in me decided that there was no better way to be watchful than to be on the same property as him, ...
