I'd Still Rather Have a Tiara - Redmond, Wa

I am pleased to report that this mornings crown prep appointment went very well…of course I was on nitrous so that certainly makes everything seem better. Now if I could just keep my tongue off my temporary crown! Due to packed schedules and vacations on both me & my dentist's part my... READ MORE

Time to Whiten!

So I have decided it is time to brighten my smile a bit. My teeth are pretty white naturally but seeing that I am an avid coffee drinker (true Seattle girl) I'm not loving the little bit of dinginess I see in the mirror. I have used Crest white strips in the past and was always pleased with... READ MORE

Still trying to figure this Botox stuff out...

Today is the eve of my 34th birthday. I love my birthday. I have always loved my birthday, but what I didn’t love were these crows feet that I could no longer ignore. I had a suspicious looking mole that my regular doctor recommended I have checked by a dermatologist, so I thought I’d... READ MORE

Bye-Bye Sketchy Mole

Did 1.5 Rounds, Wish I Could Have Finished the 2nd Round - Seattle, WA

I took Accutane when I was in my very early 20's. I have always battled light to moderate acne & figured since I was out of my teen years I wanted to get a bit more aggressive in fighting it. We did all the tests and my doctor put me on it. After the first round my skin hadn't... READ MORE

Trying Spironolactone...because I've Basically Tried Everyting Else.

So, in my endless struggle with acne I've finally decided to try Spironolactone. It was suggested to me by my dermatologist about a year ago, but when I did my research and found out it was a blood pressure medication being used off label for acne I said no way! Then...the I had a big increase... READ MORE

Vitalize Peel Was Gentle and Gave Subtle Results

I did a Vitalize peel last month. I have done very light glycolic peels in the past, but this was definitely more of an actual "peel" than I had ever experienced.
