Fall Newsletter 2006
Vacations are good for everyone! After 22 years of practice, I decided it was time to take a break from the usual routine of one week vacations. Europe has beckoned for many years and now is the time to go. I will be out of the office until October 18, 2006. Please be assured that the doctors and staff will take excellent care of you in regards to all of your needs while I vacation.
What’s New? Congratulations to Julie Parson, BS, LMT, RN, for recently graduating from Columbus State Community College with her registered nurse degree. Julie will continue to be on staff at About Face while practicing nursing at Riverside Methodist Hospital.
We are pleased to welcome Jane Taylor, L.E. to our staff. Jane lives in Upper Arlington with her family and is ready to help you achieve the results you are looking for with regards to the health of your skin. We are happy to have her. Along with new staff, we have also developed a whole new skin care system by adding the HydraFacial? system.
One of the basic elements of our skin is water. When the cells are dehydrated they cannot function at the optimal level. The delivery of the HydraFacial? with a mix of serums
softens the sebum collected within the hair follicle, extracting the accumulated impurities by vacuuming and hydrating the skin. The crystal-free microdermabrasion of the HydraFacial? system smoothes away the dead cells on the skin with utilization of the
diamond tipped hand piece and the vacuum of the system. Skin treated with this new regiment will be less congested, hydrated, and free of the typical issues of the skin. We are seeing visible results with only one application, additional procedures only add to the enhancement of the skin. In addition, we are beginning to see amazing results with our recently added Microcurrent Resculpting Facial Treatments (see before and after pictures). And we have added the Vitalize Peel? by SkinMedica to our menu as well! Please stop by and meet Jane, let her analyze your skin and recommend which of these treatments would be best for you.
Recent Research Updates
HPV + Squamous Cell Skin Cancer
Recent research has linked human papillomavirus (HPV) as a factor in developing squamous cell carcinoma, a common form of skin cancer. More research is on going at Norris Cotton Cancer Center at Dartmouth Medical School.
“Feel Good” effects of tanning beds have been shown to exist through a recent study at
Wake Forest University. The study indicates that tanning bed users often suffer withdrawal after discontinuing exposure to the ultraviolet light. Just another reason to avoid the tanning salon!
Prevention is worth a pound of cure! Patients that are predisposed to spider veins can help themselves by wearing “support hose”. The over the counter type works very well.
Give yourself a break when you are on your feet all day and help prevent spider veins, too.
