  • Respect for Social Downtime with Facial Injectables

    As we get into the holiday spirit, we find this time of year to be a bit busy in the clinic and challenging with the patient that we see. Media and advertising many times underplay social downtime. Although some patients don't mind letting others know what they had done, others prefer not to have to answer questions or make excuses for redness, ...

  • Q & A with Dr. Debra: Now You Are Speaking My Language

  • I'll Have What My Friend Had

    Just like one pair of jeans may fit someone perfectly, the chances of that same pair being right for the next person that walks through the door are, well, pretty much zero.  One of the most important factors in considering an aesthetic treatment is what it will do for your skin.
