December Pacific Dermatology & Cosmetic Center Newsletter
Happy Holidays!! We at Pacific Dermatology & Cosmetic Center wish you and your family a warm holiday season.
We are gearing up for our annual HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE on Tuesday December 13th from 1:00pm-7:00pm. Drs.

There will be great drawings, food, and special guests. We look forward to seeing many of you there for our annual festive event.
We are also thrilled to announce the purchase of a new laser….introducing the V-beam Perfecta. Yes, we have had a V-beam for years but the advanced technology in the new V-beam perfecta allows us to treat the following conditions with improved outcomes: facial redness, facial veins, scars and stretch marks, birthmarks (such as port wine stains and hemangiomas), and sun damage. We can safely use higher doses of energy without as many side effects.
Drs. Reichel and Jacobson spent a long weekend in November in faraway Orlando, Florida without our children (we know…how can you go to Orlando without kids?) to prepare for the Dermatology Boards recertification exam and brush up on surgical and general dermatology. Tough to believe that ten years have flown by since we completed residency.
Meanwhile, Andrea English, PA attended a Melanoma and Dermoscopy conference sponsored through the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, AZ. (I always find it ironic that most of our meetings are in the very places that those with skin cancer would want to avoid). The conference clearly highlighted the incidence of melanoma is increasing and predicted to continue to rise emphasizing the importance of early detection and screening. This was a big year for melanoma as new treatments have been developed that target specific melanoma molecular pathways.
Finally, Kelly Stevens, PA will be back from her maternity leave in January 2012 and looks forward to seeing all her patients again soon. As you may already know, she delivered an adorable baby girl named Ruby who we welcomed to the world. She even attended a Botox and Juvederm training session during her maternity leave!
