From the Corner Office
I never tire of seeing both familiar faces and new ones at our practice’s biannual events. It is energizing for our team and a great way to say thanks to all of you for your ongoing support and loyalty. Though this was our new office manager Nicky’s first event, she did a wonderful job planning and organizing the day. My entire staff stepped up as usual as did some of the staff from our partners at Marietta Dermatology. Without all of their hard work, none of this would be possible. In addition to Kelly Houmand PA-C and me seeing a number of mini-consults, we did several Facebook live demonstrations. I performed tear tough and cheek reshaping using my Injecta-Lift technique, while Kelly showed us her lip filler technique—which looked beautiful and natural. Also, several of our aestheticians demonstrated a variety of aesthetic services, including fat reduction with CoolSculpting by Lisa, Cutera Excel V for the treatment of unwanted facial veins by Christian, and super-fast Triton laser hair removal and micro-needling for collagen stimulation by Amy. Without question, it was a fun, informative, and successful event all around.
On another note, I was recently invited to give three lectures at this summer’s Multispecialty Aesthetic Conference in San Diego. I will be speaking on several topics, including my approach to eyelid rejuvenation. Perhaps it is merely coincidental, but recently we have had a great deal of patient interest in eyelid rejuvenation. Keeping our eyes looking bright and beautiful is more than an aesthetic decision. It is vital when presenting ourselves in a professional environment. We want our eyes to say to others that we are rested, alert, and raring to go. But sometimes, with just normal aging, our eyes might be misinterpreted as saying, “I haven’t been sleeping well and I’m feeling a bit run down.” That may not be the case at all, but we humans are programmed to interpret low eyebrows, heavy upper lids, puffy lower lid bags and dark circles, as well as under-eye and midface hollowness, as looking old and tired. Well, fear not! Using both surgical and non-surgical techniques artistically performed, all of these contributing issues can be corrected while keeping you looking natural, bright-eyed, and well-rested.
If your eyes or any facial feature is bothering you and you are not sure what to do about it, let’s talk. There are myriad techniques, most of which can be performed in the office safely and comfortably, that can help you look and feel your best.
Stay Healthy, Stay Beautiful!
