Published on Dec 1st, 2015 by Kenneth Arndt

SkinCare Physicians’ Dr. Kenneth A. Arndt received the Blade & Light Society’s 2015 Mentor of the Year Award, a tribute to his love of teaching and his life-long commitment to learning. With his curious mind, Dr. Arndt could not help but ask Dr. Murad Alam about the origin of the impressive cast bronze sculpture he received. It turned out to be a fascinating story! The Cathédral sculpture from Rodin (la Cathédral) inspired Dr. Alam, one of the founders of the Society, to use hands in the trophy given their importance in surgery.

BOTOX® Finally Approved for Crow’s Feet

Published on Sep 19th, 2013 by Kenneth Arndt

The FDA recently announced the approval of BOTOX Cosmetic for use on crow’s feet, the tiny horizontal lines that form around our eyes when we smile or squint. At our practice in Boston, we use BOTOX and similar products Dysport® and Xeomin® to treat crow’s feet and other facial wrinkles.
