I spoke with Cathy Bowbly, our licensed aesthetician at the office for some recommendations on the best summertime chemical peels.
Most people are looking for skincare services with little to no downtime. Whereas some chemical peels require you to stay out of the sun for a period of time, the Glycolic Peel and Lactic Peel do not. These peels leave you with less sensitivity to the sun than some other alternatives. However, it is always advised that you stay out of the sun immediately after your chemical peel and remember to wear sunblock.
This month we are offering $25 off any chemical peel. It is time to stop making excuses and schedule your appointment with Cathy for one of these great summer peels!
Since we work in a medical office environment and operate a AAAASF certified surgicenter it is important for every staff member to be CPR certified. Last Thursday, The Adams Center staff received their CPR certification with AED training from The American Red Cross. Adams Center manager Michelle Kolodziej believes that training should not limited to Dr. Adams and the nursing staff, we all need to be educated in case of a patient emergency. The staff found the hands-on AED training to be very useful in particular. In AED training, staff members learn how to respond to cardiac and breathing emergencies in adults, including the use of automated external defibrillators (AED).
Take a look at some of the photos we snapped of staff members practicing their skills. CPR is not a piece of cake. It’s serious and hard work. Try it. 100 compressions per minute! It’s sweat and muscle on your part.
We hope you take comfort in know that at The Adams Center, your health and safety are our top priority!
Father’s are notoriously difficult to shop for. Every year I struggle with trying to find the perfect gift for my Dad, only to find out that he already owns three of the item I intended to give him. Although this post is not going to help me out with finding the perfect gift for Father’s Day, here are some new gift ideas for the rest of you that will surely surprise Dad this Sunday.
An Appointment with Dr. Adams for Botox and Filler Injections
He may not be ready to admit it yet, but those lines on his forehead and around the corners of his eyes make him look older than he really feels. Botox and wrinkle fillers are a quick and easy way to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles and restore volume to the face.
During the month of June, we are offering $50 off any filler. Whereas your Dad may have heard of Botox, fillers may be new to him. Soft tissue fillers help smooth fine lines and wrinkles, temporarily restoring a smoother, younger looking appearance.
A Chemical Peel
Chemical peels are a great way to rejuvenate your skin and give it a nice healthy glow. Benefits of chemical peels include softer skin, increased elasticity and firmness, and more even skin coloration. If Dad is still a skeptic, show him Adams Center Ambassador Tom Kennedy’s video where he talks about his chemical peels.
Free Skin Evaluation and Gift Certificate For Doctors Skin Prescription (DSP)
Schedule Dad a free skincare evaluation with Cathy, our aesthetician, and she will select the proper medical grade skincare products for his lifestyle. He will be amazed at the difference he sees in his skin when he begins using medical grade skincare products versus some body wash that says it’s for face and body. I finally convinced my boyfriend to convert over to medical grade skincare products and now he brags to his friends that his sunscreen is far superior to theirs. Although he may not immediately admit how much he likes his new products, you’ll notice that when they run out, he’ll be coming back for more.
With summer in full swing, I am sure many of you have gone searching in your cabinets for last years bottle of sunscreen. Before you head out for a day at the beach, make sure that your bottle of sunscreen is not expired. Expired sunscreen can loose its effectiveness and can also start breeding bad bacteria. You should get in the habit of buying at least one bottle per person in your household per summer. Make sure your kids are applying sunscreen daily, as this can drastically reduce their risk of skin cancer later in life.
This month we are offering 15% off all sunscreens sold in our office. Have questions about what SPF you and your family should be using? Wondering what the difference between the sunscreens sold in our office and the ones you can pick up at Walgreens and CVS are? Ask a staff member and they will be happy to help you pick out the appropriate sunscreen for whatever your situation. If you live out of state or simply cannot make it into the office to purchase products, you can always call us at (800) 559-3056 and we will ship your order to you.
We look forward to keeping you safe in the sun this summer!

Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day. Whereas in the past, it was all about the hair and the make-up, now there are other cosmetic options that help brides make sure their wedding photos are flawless.
I want to emphasize that prenuptial plastic surgery does not have to be surgical. Botox and wrinkle fillers help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. I often recommend combining these non-surgical procedures with a chemical peel and medical skincare regimen. These less invasive procedures can take years off of your appearance and give you an extra boost of confidence on that special day.
