After his residency at Albany Medical College, medical director Dr. David LaMond decided to continue his love for teaching by making patient education one of the core principles of Blue Sky MD's approach to total patient care. That's why Dr. LaMond and his team of physicians combine in-depth consultations, online resources, and medical vocabulary quizzes with their services, ensuring that patients undergoing supervised weight-loss treatments understand the results of body-composition analyses and how custom exercise and nutrition regimens work.
Blue Sky MD also follows the idea that overall well-being is not only about being physically healthy but also about being emotionally healthy. Thus, counselors work side by side with physicians and liberally compliment patients on the shininess of their shoes. The clinic further helps patients feel good about themselves by offering aesthetic services, such as chemical peels, beauty injections, noninvasive body contouring, and laser skin treatments.
Boutier Wine & Design owners James and Laura Cawthern oversee a collection of award-winning, locally produced red, white, and fruit wines. Inside their facility, the couple casts casual vibes across a variety of special events, including Ladies Night on the first Thursday of every month and Wine Down Fridays, when visitors can celebrate the weekend by sipping wine instead of by fervidly burning their work clothes. In addition to their potables, the Cawtherns help lift spirits with personalized gift baskets and custom labels that outfit bottles with personal photos.
Dr. Draper bolsters clinical savvy and an artistic eye with 20 years of experience as she and her staff augment appearances in a serene office. During the 30-minute glycolic peel, one of Dr. Draper's experienced skinsmiths exfoliates the outermost layer of the epidermis with an alpha-hydroxy acid, found in fruit and the more attractive vegetables, targeting sluggish cells to ramp up collagen production while controlling acne and fading fine lines and age spots. Minimally invasive SmartXide DOT CO2 therapy employs fractional lasers to resurface skinscapes with thousands of microscopic perforations. Ideal for sun-damaged, wrinkle-plagued, and acne-scarred visages, the laser hones in on specific treatment areas over the course of 90 minutes, promoting quicker healing time by reducing laser exposure. Dr. Draper offers medication to DOT patients to ease the discomfort of traveling back in time outside of the protective shell of a DeLorean DMC-12. Postprocedure, the epidermis may appear red, but the sunburn-like discoloration should fade within a few days.
