Throughout life we build our own individual skill sets.
Often times we are our own guinea pig and learn from our own mistakes. Often
times however, if we build skill sets based on our careers these trial and
errors often affect others.

People always want to know the secret ingredient. And,
frankly, I can't blame them. In a lot of ways the physician assistant
profession seems too good to be true.
We study medicine for two to three years after obtaining a

Each product in this line was developed after ...
A common area of concern among cosmetic patients is the wrinkling of skin along the neck and jawline. The platysma muscle is the large muscle responsible for these lines. When the entire platysma is in action, it produces a slight wrinkling of the skin. Over time this can lead to prominent bands and lines. The muscle also depresses the lower jaw ...
Don't take another step - before you have your patient read and sign all consent forms! A patient's written consent and acknowledgement of the treatment and risks is simply not optional anymore.
