April is Rosacea Awareness month, and this month we want to share why providers are loving the new gold standard for vascular laser technology – DenaVe. DenaVe, a fiber optic laser for the treatment of vascular and pigmented lesions is changing how providers and patients are viewing the traditionally troublesome tasks of eliminating unwanted vascularities and reducing the effects of rosacea. DenaVe offers benefits to both provider and patient, as its advanced technology allows for fast, low-risk and cost-effective treatments.
DOWNTOWN. Among the various cosmetic and dermatology procedures Lewis Dermatology is known for, CoolPeel, conducted by the advanced, Deka SmartXide Tetra CO2 Laser, is very popular. The laser has more scanning patterns than earlier versions, allowing for unparalleled precision when it comes to skin resurfacing.
As thoughts of sunhats and swimsuits start to creep into our heads, so should strategies to keep patients coming through your practice doors. It’s laser season now, but that doesn’t mean you need to lock your ablative treatments away come summer. Instead, ensure you have those modalities that can continue to deliver the results your patients want without the downtime and sensitivity.

Cryotherapy, also known as cold therapy, has a long history of treating injuries and inflammation dating back to Egypt 2500 BC. Today, it likely plays a role in your aesthetic practice – and if it doesn’t, it should. You see, it’s not a matter if cryotherapy is the right complement to treatments in your practice, but which cold therapy device – or devices – is the right complement.
Instagram has become one of the most powerful tools for promoting one’s business. The social media website is used daily by millions to search for providers, learn about new treatments and share their personal experiences. But very few of us have a content studio in our aesthetic practice or a socially savvy millennial in the driver seat of our Instagram account.
So how can you dial-up the quality of your content?
When one thinks of technologies that change the lives of overlooked patients, laser hair removal doesn’t necessarily top the list. But as Dr. Leslie Apgar shared with Aesthetic Record at the Aesthetic Next Virtual Conference last fall, her Motus AX opened her practice to a whole new population of patients – those with special needs.
Non-invasive body treatments have erupted in the last decade. In 2018, the ASDS procedures survey cited that since 2011, the body sculpting category had grown 4x and shows no sign of slowing down. It’s estimated that by 2022, the market will hit $1.2 billion, growing at an 8% compounded growth rate.

With 2020 coming to a close, the predictions for 2021 aesthetic trends have started to roll in. It’s clear that demand for non-invasive aesthetics treatments will continue to surge but here are the five trends that will fuel the non-surgical aesthetic market in 2021.
If there is one thing that we have learned from 2020, it is resilience. We have pivoted and adapted to navigating the unexpected and have developed an affinity for being quick on our feet. This is especially true for aesthetic providers. With COVID-19 guidelines changing more frequently than not, odds are you, like many other practitioners are relearning how to market to your patients in this new normal. During this time, you may have also noticed which services in your practice are “pandemic-proof”… and which have seen their day. These dust gatherer’s may be adding burdens to your practice with additional overheads and wasted space, and can get in the way of your success…

The Light EVO laser plus IPL platform from Quanta System (Milan, Italy) puts potential into the hands of practitioners eager to provide a plethora of comfortable, customizable, commonly-sought dermatologic and aesthetic therapies. Users can harness the convenience and versatility of Light EVO to craft their own proprietary therapies, or start with the unique ELLUMINATE treatment to give patients results that keep them coming back for more – without costly consumables.
If you have been keeping up with the latest aesthetic trends, chances are you’ve heard about plasma. Perhaps you’ve seen the horrific patterns and effects that some devices leave behind. For too long plasma devices have been unreliable, unregulated, and too accessible to those without the skill set to properly treat patients. Treating someone with a plasma pen is a medical procedure NOT a cosmetic service. Therefore, providers should have the most advanced and safest technology on the market today. Enter Subnovii – the FDA cleared plasma device which is changing the game for patients and providers alike…
The holidays are going to look a little different this year. From family gatherings, to travel, to what people will be spending money on. Let’s talk beauty – the usual rush to the salon or stock up at Sephora on festive make-up and glam is taking a back seat to this year’s number-one in demand beauty accessory, beautiful, healthy-looking skin.
In times of uncertainly, the beauty industry has historically looked at what’s been termed “the lipstick index.” The “lipstick index” was coined during the 2001 recession by…
So…what’s on the top of your patient’s lists this year? Just ask Google. Google trends is a fun and FREE tool to understand what people are searching. We often use it to understand trends and what patients are increasingly interested in. This year, the procedure that tops the Google Trends List – laser hair removal.
The reboot of a classic can often feel like a last gasp—one final attempt to get with the times (we see you, Abercrombie & Fitch). So recently, when we learned of a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser aiming to woo millennials with promises of born-again skin and minimal downtime, we felt compelled to do a proverbial pulse check on the veteran resurfacing technology.
