SPECIAL ADVERTISING SECTION PROFILES Women in Business
What advice would you offer for women just starting out?
Be honest with yourself, establish protocols and stick to
them. Helping people to find and bring out their beauty
has always been my goal, although I had not defined it
or realized it early on, progressing from being a model
and designer to helping children as a pediatrician. I then
discovered my true love as a laser, skin care and
What makes you different than others in your profession?
As one of only a few physicians who directly performs all
procedures, I am able to constantly assess the treatment
while performing it and make immediate adjustments.
Tailoring your treatment this way ensures the best possible
result. We purchase all upgrades to our systems as soon as
they become available and keep our equipment up to date.
My partner, Gregory Dick MD, is a board certified plastic
surgeon and we routinely consult with each other, adding
an additional dimension to your possible treatment options.
What is the biggest challenge in the job?
To make sure I provide the best possible treatment plan
and care, I attend many national meetings to investigate
the latest procedures so that I can bring state of the art
solutions to a patient’s particular issues. Whether it’s
adopting new areas for fat freezing, such as under the
chin or the upper arm, or expanding laser treatments to
acne scars and wrinkles, rosacea, spot removal or hair
reduction, I strive to help my patients be wise with their
time and money.
Our principles are simple: If you look good we look
good. If you are happy, we are happy.
