  1. January 1st was a lot of fun (two days ago)!
    Opened Champagne with my clients!
    They are right - it's great to start "new year's day" with facial and bubble!
    Toasted for NEW US!


  2. Immediately after one treatment!


  3. Received Local Community Choice Award for Top Skin Care in San Jose.
    I thank all of my loyal customers!!!

  4. Recently found a nice floor lamp at Lamp Plus (slim and light weight design - practical in the treatment room).
    I put two butterflies on the lamp! I think it's kind of pretty...and it's brightening up the IPL room!

  5. Recently changed facial chair / table in IPL room. Comfortable!

  6. Enjoyed great wine and steak etc. with my clients!
    They do IPL, Microdermabrasion and Hair Reduction etc. with me.
    I chose Grgich Hills wine for them.
    One of my clients brought Picchetti sparking wine (nice!).

    Cheers for beautiful life......!
  7. Waited 6 weeks................
    Finally, the new and custom shelves were installed.
    Book shelf and skin care product shelf...

    Picture is the product shelf. Easier than before for customers to touch, feel and see various bottles and jars.
    Correct skin care products are important for anti-aging and clearer skin!

  8. Ultherapy brochure states the followings:

    The only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. 

    Non-invasive
    No downtime
    Builds collagen
    Natural results
    Single treatment
    Safe ultrasound

    Ultherapy delivers focused ultrasound energy to the same foundational layer typically addressed by surgeons during cosmetic surgery - without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.

    This energy initiates the body's natural response to stimulate the growth of fresh, new collagen and strengthen weak collagen.

    Some people see an inital effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear over 2 - 3 months as new collagen builds, gradually lifting and tightening skin on the face and neck smoothing skin on the chest. Unlike lasers, radio-frequency and other techonologies, Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver energy at optimal depths, temperature and precision.

    Over all, higher percentage of people are satisfied with the improvements.

    The cost is high (to me) - I know many people who spent $3,000 - $4,500 per procedure (for face or face & neck).

    In order to save money, however, I think you should try HIFU (skin lifting) treatment. It is my understanding that Ultherapy uses HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound) technology. In other words, Ultherapy is HIFU. Some HIFU technicians are very good. You just have to find a trustworthy technician/therapist/doctor who is knowledgeable and have good experience of HIFU treatment. You can save money this way. I believe Ultherapy works, but in my opinion it doesn't have to be Ultherapy - HIFU is what works for tightening and lifting skin. Just find a good therapist for it.
