  • Is your Birth Control causing you to have ACNE?

    Saturday, December 24, 2016 - 6:36am

    You might want to call your Physician instead of your Dermatologist to help combat your acne. REALLY!?


    Yes! Helping young women have clear skin is my thing. And often times it’s all in their hormones. Am I advocating every teenager get on the pill…NO! I’m suggesting it will help, much better than antibiotics and prescription acne cream and irritating retinoic creams.

  • People should be beautiful in every way-in their faces, in the way they dress, in their thoughts, and in their innermost selves

    It’s no secret European women don’t skimp on skin care and monthly facials. European women spend about 75% on skin care and 25% on makeup - North Americans are the exact opposite with 25% on skin care and 75% on makeup.  European women are more concerned about preventing aging than fixing it with the help of make-up or plastic surgery. 

  • Why does dry skin itch?

    Wednesday, December 14, 2016 - 6:40am

    Dry skin has exposed gaps in the barrier function, making nerve endings more exposed. When surface cells dry, they become more brittle and itchy. When the skin is scratched, these cells are removed and the skin becomes inflamed and can even become red and itchier!

  • Do Thick Moisturizers Give More Hydration?

    Monday, November 14, 2016 - 7:02am

    It’s a mistake I see all too frequently. Women with “dry” skin buy heavy, oil-based moisturizers because they think their skin is truly dry.


    Initially, the heaviness feels good, relieving that tight, dry feeling. But a few hours later, the old problem returns. Why? It’s the wrong product! Truly dry skin actually flakes. It needs an oil-based moisturizer to replenish that missing ingredient in your skin.

  • Are You Sick And Tired Of Shaving? (Here’s What To Do)

    UGH! Shaving is so tedious, isn’t it? And what about those ingrown hairs around your bikini line? That’s definitely an ouchy.


    Instead of putting up with the drudgery and inconvenience of shaving, just get rid of that unwanted hair!

    With Intense Pulse Light Therapy, or IPL, the next generation in light therapy, you can get rid of unwanted hair on almost any part of the body. In fact, IPL is so effective that it gets rid of 80% or more of hair permanently.

  • Many Benefits of Rosehip Seed Oil

    Thursday, September 8, 2016 - 7:05am

    Used for generations by the Andean Indians of Chile who recognized years ago that Rosehip seed oil had exceptional healing benefits for skin and hair. The essential fatty acids in rosehip seed oil quench dry, sun damaged skin and helps to improve the appearance of burns, scars, wrinkles and stretch marks and gives a beautiful, natural glow to the skin when used regularly.

  • Bye-Bye Summer! The Secret To Turning Up Your Skin’s Glow

    Monday, September 5, 2016 - 10:52pm

    Because your skin is greatly affected by the seasons, you have to give it what it needs for each season of the year. As a result, your home care may need to change to accommodate those needs.

    Think of it this way. You don’t wear winter clothes in the summer. So why would you use the same skin care regimen all year long?

  • Are You Sure You Have Oily Skin?

    Wednesday, August 10, 2016 - 6:41am

    It’s not uncommon for women to tell me during their Advanced Skin Analysis they have oily skin, when in fact, they actually have combination skin.


    What’s the difference?

    Oily skin is oily all over—not just the t-zone. Combination skin types experience two skin conditions on their face, oily and normal or dry. It’s tricky and difficult.

    When treating acne skin, it a good idea to try and understand the many causes of acne, the effects of day to day items and food have on your skin and how different acne treatments work. Unfortunately, this is a far ranging topic with very few clear answers.

  • The surprising ways Dermapen Microneedling works

    Wednesday, July 27, 2016 - 6:25am
    Of all the clinical anti-aging treatments on the market, microneedling, or Collagen Induction Therapy, is perhaps the most unusual in its application for
    creating younger skin. Medical Esthetics by Katie was the 1st Skin Clinic in New Westminster to do microneedling two years ago and has helped many clients with anti-aging and acne scaring.
