Will I bruise after my injectable treatment?

23 September 2021

I’ve always been mindful of trying to avoid having patients leave my clinic with a bruise or mild swelling; long ago investing in an expensive, high tech gadget which shows where veins are located underneath the surface of the skin.

A journey to happier skin

18 May 2020

Over the years I’ve tried most skincare products, both cheap and expensive, in addition to my regular use of fake tan. I felt it gave me the appearance of a nice healthy glow, which I tended to hide behind. But then I became increasingly aware of the medical grade products from Obagi. I was reading a lot about the Obagi Nu-Derm System and had seen the great before and after photos and impressive reviews. So, what did I have to lose?

I hated my eye bags!

29 April 2020

What could I do about my eye bags?

I needed these gone… and soon, please!

What could be done? What would be the best treatment for me?
