The Times They Are A-Changin’

time_to_changeSpring is here, a time of change as we cast off the cold and grey of winter for the blooms and hope of longer days and warmer temperatures. So too are we having changes at Maine Laser Skin Care.

First, as many of you may already know, my longtime administrative assistant Becky Gilbert is no longer with Maine Laser Skin Care. We all wish her the best in her new adventures.

Emily Littlefield, who was being trained for a part time role at the time of Becky’s departure, has conveniently stepped in as the front desk receptionist full time. I hope you all will welcome her in the new role.

Second, we will doing some remodeling in the next several weeks to the larger room that is to the left as you enter our office. This space will be divided into 2 smaller treatment rooms and an additional storage room.

Kristi James, who performs the Novalash extensions, will have her own room. The second room may be used for a massage therapist, and I am in the process of looking for the most appropriate candidate at this time. More on that in a later blog post.

Dr. Voisine initially will treat his current patients who presently travel to Portland weekly for checkups.

Soon, and as demand develops, Dr. Voisine will be able to treat new patients. I am excited to be able to offer this non- surgical, medically supervised, and highly successful weight loss program to the central Maine area.

Finally, I continue to be impressed by the gradual growth in demands for my aesthetic services in the greater Augusta area. Slightly over a year ago, I took the leap of faith to leave my internal medicine practice of many years and expand my decade-long work in this exciting and expanding field of aesthetic medicine.  As always, I am humbled by your support and spontaneous word-of-mouth testimonials that are the best advertising of all.

laser-faceIn late April 2015, I will be attending a national laser medicine conference, and I plan to bring new and cutting-edge ideas back to Maine. We will also be surveying you later in the spring regarding potentially new services.

Remember, as I often say to those who want things to stay the same, change is the only constant. But per the headline of this post, Bob Dylan sang about that topic a long time ago.
