Who are we???

When trying to figure out creative posts that we could write about on our blog, we came up with several. Although many of them where great ideas (I am sure we will use them in the future) our favorite had to do with getting to know our physicians and staff better.

If you check out our BRAND NEW AMAZING website (see below for more information on this) you will find profiles of our staff and information on their educational background; these are all really important things to know when deciding a physician. It’s also important (well maybe not as important), but it’s really fun to get to know these people on a more personal level, and what better way than to have them answer 25 really random, funny questions???

It’s always fun to answer questions about yourself that you don’t normally think about, but it’s even MORE fun to read the answers of other people because it gives you a little glimpse into their life. It helps showcase their personality in a way that you may not ever get the chance to see on a normal day-to-day basis…especially if they are your doctor.

So, over the next couple of weeks we will be spotlighting our staff members and physicians. Hopefully you will come to know them a little better, but if nothing else, we are confident you will get a laugh out of some of their answers! Stay tuned…

On a side note…our NEW website has launched! We simply cannot go any further with this post without mentioning the details on our new BEAUTIFUL website! We are soooooo excited to have this up and running. We have put a ton of thought and consideration into what you might want out of a website, so we hope you find it user friendly and over flowing with information!!! Please feel free to comment and let us know what you think, or if you have any suggestions those are more than welcome too!

Holiday Prep Beauty Secrets!

It is November already and we can hardly believe that the holiday season is just around the corner! It’s that time of year when we start asking the many important questions: Who is going to cook the stuffing? Where are we all meeting for the holidays? What the heck am I going to buy for Cousin Eddy this year?

Although there are so many important things we need to think about during this time, it’s also important to not forget about ourselves too! After all, we all want to look and feel our best for the holidays. Why not treat yourself to a few things along the way to make yourself feel extra special too.

For this reason and many more we are so excited to present our final educational seminar of the year. We have saved the best for last, and can’t wait to share some wonderful ideas, new products and fantastic procedures with you. The breakdown of the evening looks like this:

*Dr. Bhatla will discuss ProLipo, explaining all about this wonderful, minimally invasive, procedure that can re-shape many areas of your body and get rid of localized body fat.

*Dr. Neff will be presenting on how sclerotherapy can help you get rid of those spider veins you may have wanted to get rid of for awhile.

*Nancy, our medical aesthetician and make up artist extraordinaire, will be demonstrating and discussing several of our new jane iredale products as well as showing you how to get a lovely holiday look in only a few minutes.

Not only are we presenting on some pretty amazing things, but we are also offering all attendees a $50 gift card to be used on any medical aesthetic service as well as several other pretty great specials.

So, if you are interested in treating yourself and learning how to look your best this holiday season give us a call today and let us reserve you a seat. 614-384-2999. Also don’t forget to continue to check out our website for updates and specials for upcoming months.

Pure Impact...Pure Genius!!!

The fall collection for jane iredale has just been released and we are in love!!!! It is called Pure Impact and they couldn't have named it any better. If you wear this you will, without a doubt, make an impact. (in a positive way of course!) We had the privilege of seeing this collection first hand before ordering it, and it is absolutely beautiful. It just arrived here at Premier Aesthetic & Laser Centre this week, and we are so excited to share it with you!
There are several pieces to this collection which are all equally great and can all be used together to create the perfect customized look for you. To give you a better idea let's break them down for you:

Eye Steppers: These things are AMAZING. There are three different compacts to choose from, but it is easier than that...they are broken down into eye color. So, if you have green eyes, you want the compact made especially for green eyes. (pictured to the left) There is also one for blue and brown eyes as well. There are five shadows per compact chosen to compliment each eye color beautifully, AND you can create many different unique looks with just the five shades. We love this idea and the colors are sure to make a "pure impact"! (cheesy I know, but I couldn't resist)

Lip Fixation: These handy, double duty lip stains/glosses are genius! Although lip fixation itself is not a new product, they have introduced three brand new colors for fall and to say they are beautiful is an understatement. The colors they have created follow the fall trends to a tee. Fixation is a nice berry stain, devotion is a shade of coral perfection, and rapture is a pretty bright pop of red. Chose one or get them all because you can't go wrong with any of them!
You can check out all of the details on their website We are obviously very enthusiastic over these products hence the novel we just wrote about them, but don't take our word for it...come in and see them for yourselves because we are positive you will be saying to yourself..."Pure Impact, Pure Genius!!!!"

Are those spiders on your legs, or are those just veins???

The more you talk to people about spider veins, the more you realize the majority of people out there have them and we are all equally annoyed by them! Who wants their legs to look like spiders are crawling on them?? The name "spider veins" came about because these veins sometimes look like just that...spiders! So unless your Halloween costume requires spiders on your legs...let's discuss getting rid of those pesky veins!

Depending on the severity, there are actually several different treatment options out there. Here at Premier Aesthetic & Laser Centre we offer two procedures for spider veins: Sclerotherapy and Laser Treatment. These procedures are for the small spider veins we talked about earlier. If you have bigger, "ropey" and painful varicose veins there are other treatment options available for you. Once the large varicose veins are treated, sclerotherapy and laser treatments can help take care of the small spider veins.

The great website below, highlights several of our very own physicians as well as offers great information on veins! So check it out and if you decide you want to change your costume from scary spider vein legs to Tina Turner (she still has some great looking legs!) then give us a call and we would love to squash those pesky spiders before they get any worse!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for LATISSE!!!

By now you may have heard or seen the buzz surrounding a product that makes your eyelashes look Hollywood quality…longer, darker, thicker and simply BEAUTIFUL. This product is called Latisse and it is the first and only FDA approved treatment for hypotrichosis. (The medical term for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes)

Latisse is a prescription and it works by prolonging the anagen (active growth) phase of the eyelashes. It is very simple to use and you will see significant results within 2 months.

So, does Latisse really work??? YES, YES, and YES!!! We are in love with this product at Premier Aesthetics!! We use it and have seen amazing results. Our clients and friend comment daily on how beautiful our lashes look. It truly is simple to use. Only one application is required at bedtime.

As far as side effects: we have not personally experienced any and have been more than pleased with our results. As with any medical product there are potential side effects, the most common being irritation at the site of application which is easily treated.

For more information on possible side effects, common questions and to see some pretty amazing before and after pictures check out the product website

Bottom line: We can’t say enough great things about it!!!
Give Latisse a try and we are confident you will be singing its praises with us!
