when-should-you-ask-for-a-refund

[ad_1] This is an important question.  But maybe even more important is …how do you ask for a refund.  This is a tough skill to learn even for some seasoned negotiators and lawyers. Since Clear & Brilliant is 1/2 of a Fraxel (we call it baby Fraxel or Fraxel lite) in our office, it has the potential to aggravate pigment problems. In rare instances, it can cause pigment p...

moisturizers-for-very-dry-or-very-oily-skin

[ad_1] Let’s face it!  Most moisturizer are formulated for that middle zone of  normal.  Or, a little on one side or the other.  But what do you do when you really are in the top 10% for oily (and possibly acne) OR the driest 10%.  It’s tough to find just the right one.  Who wants to use pure nut butters, or really shiny oils on dry skin?  And who want to look like an oi...

how-to-add-new-skincare-products-to-your-routine

[ad_1] I took out the line name above, because this could happen with almost any skincare line.  We seen, in our office, reactions to even the brands that are supposed to be best for sensitive skin, including reactions to the Vanicream, Cetaphil, CeraVe, and Lubriderm drugstore brands.   All of the above have chemicals in them that can cause reactions. ‘Natural’ or or...

[ad_1] Ok first things first though!  Be sure to look at your nutrition and your triggers while you’re doing this.  The toughest patient to get “unred” we’ve ever treated was a women in her 50s, going through menopause (hot flushes), a chef so in a hot kitchen, and at wine tastings all the time. Lifestyle things to consider: Try to identify y...

botox-dysport-gone-wrong-eyebrows-look-wonky

[ad_1] Yikes!   I’m sure this isn’t what you or doctor/provider were intending.  I’m wondering if the person you went to is really experienced?  It might be good to find out before you go for a correction, because your question about a touch up is relevant.  Their experience could be the answer. It can take 5-10 days for Dysport/Botox to fully activate.  And...

filler-around-the-eye-area

[ad_1] Thank you! Okay…….so experts DO vary on this.  This is an expert only area for obvious reasons.  Damaging the eye itself with poor or inexperienced technique would be terrible. Part of it is that you want the doctor to use whichever technique they are most experienced with ….and best at….right?  You really don’t want them tryi...

covid-virus-skin-and-respiratory-spread-clarifications

[ad_1] Just a couple of points here for clarification.  Clearly  I didn’t write this clearly, and I don’t want things misinterpreted. Hand and skin Covid virus spread The biggest problem with hands is that we then touch our faces without thinking about it.  It’s turning out (more data needed) that perhaps it doesn’t live on surfaces as long as was...

[ad_1] Oh yeah!  We are all doing the same at our clinic and are seeing a surprising number of patients with mask related problems.  If you really want to try OTC hydrocortisone, please use for no more than 3-7 days once or twice a day.  Remember that cortisones take the red out, so it looks better, but act as fertilizer for yeasts and bacteria and make them worse in the long run....
