Skin Cancer Happens!

The other day, a client came in for a quick appointment that was about something totally 
different and just happened to mention that her hairdresser had noticed that there was a 
strange spot behind her ear. Both the client and the hairstylist were certain that it had not 
been there at her hair appointment just six weeks before…


Whether it was truly brand new in the last several weeks, or simply not noticed before then, it
was definitely not a lesion that could be ignored
 and after a brief discussion, we decided to
remove it immediately even though our office does not bill insurance. The timeliness of taking
care of something while the client was in the office was important to her and it meant that she
did not have to figure out another time to get off of work to get it addressed.


I am so pleased to be able to take care of things like this in the course of our regular day, rather
than having to tell someone that they need to go to somewhere else! The bottom line is that if
you have a spot or a bump that you are worried about, please ask your Morpheus provider to
take a look at it
!


The good news is that this lesion was entirely excised and although there will be a slight line
scar
 for a few months, it will be difficult to even find in a year.

6 months after excision, the scar is barely visible.

To the untrained ear, all these words blend together and mean the same thing. I will admit that when I first started in this industry a decade ago, I pretended I knew the difference but was merely “faking it ’til I made it.” After years of working in and studying the skincare world, I want…

#VOTE! It is a Privilege and a Responsibility

Truthfully I, like many people right now, feel exhausted by the anger and negativity of politics.  I will admit to keeping my head in the sand and avoiding the news.  But, I am DONE being an ostrich. I am writing this because I must use whatever voice I have to urge, encourage, cajole, and maybe…
