Holiday Gift Guide 2015

A few of our favorite things:

Gift-giving can be stressful in this already-busy season. To help take the guesswork out of holiday shopping, we asked our staff what tops their list as the go-to gifts they love to give friends and family...

"My pick is SkinCeuticals Face Cream. Everyone It has a luxurious texture and feels amazing on your skin. It's the cashmere sweater of moisturizers! This cream works hard too, with antioxidants to protect your skin and soy isoflavones to stimulate collagen production. It is suitable ofr all skin types and makes a perfect stuffer." -Dr. Sonya Cook


Dr. Julia Carroll's pick: Clarisonic

"Everyone knows I love the Clarisonic because its brushes have the magic ability to perfectly clean, buff, and exfoliate our skin. But the brand is releasing a new limited edition collection, and you'll love the story behind it: Clarisonic teamed up with the Keith Haring Foundation on a set of brushes that raises AIDS awareness and cleans your skin to boot. Pick one up for your BFF (or maybe stash one under the tree for yourself!)" -Dr. Julia Carroll

We're excited to announce that we've added a new dermatologist to our clinic. Welcome Dr. Fara Redlick!

Dr. Fara Redneck's Pick: Filler "A few girlfriends have requested a new holiday smile with more defined, and youthful lips and I'm happy to oblige! A great treatment to enhance your lips is dermal filler, a soft product which can give you back the lips you used to have or always dreamed of having. It is a single treatment and can last up to a year."-Dr. Fara Redlick

Maura's Pick: Hybrid Fractional Laser "My ultimate favourite treatment is Hybrid Fractional Laser. I have performed many, and I too enjoy the amazing results for acne scars, texture, and overall smoother skin. Hybrid Fractional destroys old skin, and stimulates growth of collagen. Who doesn’t want brand NEW skin?" -Maura, Laser Esthetician

Nancy's Pick: C E Ferulic by SkinCeuticals "My favourite stocking stuffer is CE Ferulic, from Skinceuticals. I apply it to my face every morning, and in the summer I also use it on my chest, shoulders, and hands because I want to keep these areas supple and free of brown spots. I prefer to be a grape versus a raisin. 😉 (Psst, this serum is included with the Special Kit we're offering this month!)" -Nancy, Clinic Coordinator

Tim's Pick: Clear and Brilliant

"I love the Gentle Fractional laser treatment because it battles the early signs of aging by improving skin texture and tone. Gentle Fractional Laser reduces pore size and helps to revitalize skin which makes it a great treatment to have a week or two before a special occasion. This treatment is great for men and women in their late 20's and into their early 40's who have never had a laser treatment before and are nervous."-Tim, RN

"Skin care is important to me, and finding products that deliver results can be difficult. I found that NeoCutis products live up to their claims, in particular the Bio-Serum and the Bio-Cream. After using both products, my skin feels refreshed, more toned, and is well moisturized. That's why I'm wrapping up these products this Holiday Season!"-
