Wow, it’s been a while! I hope this spring season is treating everyone well. Sorry, I’ve been off the grid lately with regard to blog writing. You may have noticed that we’ve been working hard lately to change the look of our internet presence, and are excited about the new website, which launched about 2 weeks ago. It’s a work in progress, so we’ll be making continued updates and a resumption of the podcasts as well as the blog!
As far as the Medispa goes, there are really no new developments to report. Kelly and I are thrilled to be busy, especially with our new CO2 laser. The winter and early spring are ideal times for any laser treatment since suntans preclude the use of lasers. This applies to our new laser as well as our Candela Max laser, which we use for hair removal, unwanted pigment, and spider veins. The good news is that we have additional treatments that can be used over the summer, such as micro-needling and certain chemical peels. However, I can’t emphasize enough the importance of sunscreen! I am always partial to zinc and/ or titanium dioxide-based products, as they afford an actual physical barrier to the sun!
On the plastic surgery front, we continue to see a decline in the number of women interested in breast implants, as well as an increased demand for implant removal surgery, often combined with breast lifting (mastopexy) and fat grafting procedures. And of course, if you ever have any questions about previously placed implants, do not hesitate to call us!
In more national healthcare news, last fall President Biden finally declared the pandemic “over,” but restrictions on travelers into the US and Covid vaccine requirements remain in place. The consensus with regard to the origin of Covid has shifted as well, with more and more people believing that the etiology was a lab leak. As I have said in previous blogs, I hope politics can be put aside so that an honest and accurate assessment of how the pandemic was handled and the efficacy and safety of the vaccines can be undertaken. Unfortunately, I am not sure that is possible. Dr. Fauci, though, has come out more recently with comments about the "counterproductive" effects of Covid vaccine mandates, so time will tell!
As I wrap things up, I just want to thank everyone who takes the time to read these blogs. We will continue to use them as a way to announce specials, but will also be posting specials on our social media outlets. We also have a referral program in place. To show our appreciation, and to show our enthusiasm for our products, we are offering 20% off all of our skincare and chemical peel offerings until 4/30/23.
And here’s a little jingle as well! Enjoy!
