I had a client last year, land in my office and said, “I need you to get these barnacles off me. My husband doesn’t like them.” I didn’t even have to ask what she meant. Most of us, of a certain age, and younger, have a few little spots- age, sun, xanthelasma (cholesterol deposits), white milia, red haemangiomas, skin tags, ‘beauty spots’ or moles, that we would prefer to be without. In her case, she was talking dark, rough age spots. She had had her skin checked ( a must before I will tackle them), and she was ready. So, we numbed them up and proceeded to remove them from her face, chest and back.
This is where I get job satisfaction- the warm and fuzzy kind. She looked in the mirror and said, “Ooh, it’s like you’ve washed my face!!” My little Clinical Skinclear machine is great- no stitches needed, lesions heal on the face in a week (2-3 weeks for scabs to go on the body), and voila! New improved skin. 15 minutes $150 per treatment, allow extra half hour if numbing is required.
