Natural Does Not Necessarily Mean Safe

· In the News · Comments Off on Natural Does Not Necessarily Mean Safe

I’m a believer in science and clinical trials when deciding on what to recommend to patients for skincare and of course, pharmaceutical treatments.

But right now there’s a lot of money and social media influence spent on convincing you that some ingredients in skincare products are harmful.

What’s interesting is that the alternatives pushed by the clean beauty movement often result in skin irritation, infections or allergic reactions.

As you’ll see from this editorial in JAMA Dermatology, many useful and safe ingredients have been “demonized” without any scientific evidence.

Beware of marketing terms like “natural” and “clean” and look for clinical trials that demonstrate the results of the product and show the vast majority of testers did not have adverse reactions.

Expanded Office Space

· In the News · Comments Off on Expanded Office Space

2016 Aug 8_DrG and AdrianaIf you haven’t been to the office in awhile, you may not be aware that we expanded our space and took over the office next door.  We’ve moved our cosmetic treatments into this area where we now have our Clear + Brilliant and HydraFacial machines, as well as other aesthetic equipment.  We call the new treatment rooms the “tree rooms” because of all of the greenery and trees outside of our new windows.  Here I am in the photo with Adriana, who I’m sure you’ve seen working at our front desk.  Look forward to seeing you soon!
