The 2014 update – The Women of Larchmont put me to task to provide some “what’s been going on” with the practice. And when I reflect on the whirlwind that it’s been, training other physicians stands out as one of the most gratifying experiences of the past twelve months.
In May I headed to Australia and in one week trained groups of dermatologists in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne in Scupltra injection techniques. I wrapped up the busy, productive visit as one of the keynote speakers for the Australian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Soon after my return I traveled to Toronto for training and speaking engagements, and will head to France in September.
This year I was honored to be appointed to two new leadership positions for the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) – the Development and Industry Advisory Council and the ASDS Meeting Planning Committee. In addition, Allergan asked me to contribute my expertise and images of my work to their brochure for their remarkably popular product, Voluma. Valeant has called upon me to do the same for their new brochure for Sculptra. Being recognized by these renowned companies for my artistic approach is also an incredible honor.
Contributing to professional publications remains important to me and I co-authored a supplement to the April 2014 Journal of Drugs in Dermatology on Sculptra and it’s use in facial volumization.
The element of my work closest to my heart is offering my patients the very best care and selecting cutting edge technology to best meets their needs. Our office is excited about our newest addition, the Clear + Brilliant laser that achieves smoother, clearer skin with minimal downtime.
We also added Microneedling to the treatment lineup. It’s fractional resurfacing accomplished without laser.
Thank you again to the Larchmont Chronicle for encouraging me to reflect on the past year. Here’s to my incredible patients and staff and to all of the women of our cherished community. We make Larchmont a special little spot in LA.
