DR NGYN - Dr. Nancy SalisburyThe Mona Lisa Touch is an FDA-approved CO2 laser that is used to rejuvenate the cells of the vagina.

Woman want this area to respond, lubricate and accommodate appropriately. By changing things at the cellular level, we are seeing profound changes for women, primarily those in menopause or experiencing disease states that do not allow hormones. To me, the treatment response has been astounding.

Women we treat are noticing improved tone, a better-behaving bladder and a better sexual response. Neither the literature, nor my experience, has revealed a down side. There have been no adverse effects from the treatment. Women are greater than 95 percent satisfied and many of the benefits have been a surprise.

It is an outpatient procedure that is $2,400 for three treatments, performed six weeks apart. There is no down time. Women are amazed when the procedure is not painful, because relations have been painful for so long.

Unfortunately, the treatment is not covered by insurance. Lasers are an expensive technology because the devices are a large capital expense.

Ladies AND Gentlemen, this is a game-changer if things are not right down there.

Come in and talk about it. I would love to help change things for the better or talk about all the options that might be available to you.

LAKE GROVE DENTAL - Charles Branen, DMDWith recent developments in detecting bacterial strains in the mouth and how they affect the presence of tooth decay and overall health, we are taking every step to discover and strategize for each of our patients the best way for them to have a healthy, cavity-free mouth and improved general wellness.  

Indicators evident in the mouth tell a great deal about your overall being. There are now discovered links between oral pathogens to tooth decay, pancreatic cancer, stillbirth or preterm babies. Periodontal disease is also now linked to heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, erectile dysfunction and more.

We now have methods to test the level of bacteria present in the mouth for those at high risk of tooth decay. In chronic cases, we can even do testing that determines which type of bacteria are present and take steps to reduce or eliminate those pathogens. A variety of new rinses and toothpastes are on the market, which use natural ingredients with anti-bacterial properties that surpass even antibiotics.

For a long time, the relationship of the mouth to the whole body’s wellness has been ignored. We now know that, instead, the mouth serves as a window into which we can see early signs of life-diminishing conditions, let alone tooth decay and periodontal disease.

Call us today for a no-cost caries (tooth decay) risk assessment and consultation at 503-636-3641.

PETROFF CENTER - Dr. Mark PetroffHave you ever considered a hair removal treatment, but been wary of the price, permanence or the time involved?

At Petroff Center, we use the GentleMax Pro Laser, which powerfully yet gently removes hair with faster treatment times and decreased sensation.

Through the end of December, we are offering 20 percent off hair removal packages, which consist of a series of six treatments.

Unlike many previous professional laser hair removal options, GentleMax Pro generates permanent outcomes and is safe and effective on all skin tones.

Its Gentle Hair Removal technology features a patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD), which minimizes discomfort by releasing a quick burst of liquid cryogen before and after each laser pulse.

The cryogen rapidly evaporates, cooling the outer layers of the skin and making the treatment much more comfortable by removing the snapping and burning sensation generally associated with laser hair removal. During the treatment, a handpiece delivers a laser pulse into the targeted areas and a controlled amount of therapeutic heat that safely and effectively damages the hair follicles. The DCD technology makes treatments easy and comfortable for our patients.

GentleMax Pro has the industry’s largest handpiece spot size of 24mm, allowing us to drastically reduce treatment time. It is the only FDA-approved treatment for permanent hair reduction.

Hair removal treatments take anywhere from a few minutes to about an hour, depending on the area being treated. Since hair grows in three stages, six treatments spaced six weeks apart are recommended for optimal results.

HASSON COMPANY REALTORS - Mike HallIf you built your own home today, how would you want it oriented?  Rising sun in the East, kissing your master bedroom or breakfast area?  Sunsets on a West-facing patio?  Shade just right for midsummer afternoons?  

With so many choices and compromises to be made in finding a home, I find often that this one is often overlooked. 

Most folks know generally that they like “light and bright,” but many aren’t great at knowing the compass points and where the sun moves.  Every home is different, and it’s one of those things you can’t upgrade by remodeling! 

I use a compass often when showing homes. It’s a standard app on most smartphones, and it lets you be certain of where South is on a dark day. I find where the sun’s path falls on the home, including where trees are located and whether they’re evergreen or deciduous.

There are also plenty of online calculators that help visualize the sun’s path, like www.suncalc.org/.  Just enter a home’s address and it overlays the lot, the structure and the sun’s path.  Slick! 

The other orientation that can be really important is to the prevailing winds/storms, which are usually southwesterly.  That side takes a beating, so having some cover to the southwest, whether porch or back patio, is valuable. 

Next time you look at a home, grab your phone/compass and give it some thought, and give me a call!

VIC'S AUTO CENTER - Mike KeelerNo one wants to find out their brakes are gone the hard way — by losing their brakes and colliding into a tree.

First things first:

· You need to have your brakes seriously looked at once per year.

· Your brake fluid should be changed every two to three years.

So, what are the signs that your vehicle’s brakes are veering toward failure?

Don't ignore your antilock brake system (ABS) light when it pops up on your dashboard. It could mean there's a wiring or electrical problem.

Listen to your brakes. Squealing or grinding noises are signs that your brake pads are wearing thin.

Brake pulsation when coming to a sudden stop or after applying the brakes for a long time isn’t a good sign. That typically means the rotors are warped, which can be corrected by putting them on a lathe and machining them smooth.

Be wary of excess drag while you accelerate. Rust may have built up on your emergency brakes, which leaves them "on" even when the lever's down.

When your car pulls from to the side, you have frozen brakes, brakes that are out of alignment, or fluid leaking on the brake pads or shoes.

Stopping distance — When your car takes longer to stop than you're used to, you may need a brake adjustment, new brake linings, or a replacement power booster.

If your brake pedal seems soft or spongy, there may be excess air in the brakes. Your mechanic can release the air through "brake bleeding."

TRIOS STUDIO - Mary WongHave you ever wondered what Fair-Trade gemstones are?

December is your chance to find out at Trios Studio in Lake Oswego. My business partners, Deborah Spencer, Kathe Mai and I have offered our Fair Trade Gems and Jewelry Event for nine years. We started it soon after we opened our shop in 2006.

Come and find out how Fair-Trade gemstones such as rubies and sapphires are produced by small, artisanal mines that are often family-owned. On Saturday, Dec. 3 from noon to 5 pm, we are holding an open house with refreshments, exhibits and conversations about the Fair-Trade movement and the beautiful end product.

The gemstones follow a strict set of protocols, with supply-chain transparency, protecting worker’s rights and the environment. It’s a grass-roots movement, growing around the world.

Mines and participating producers have to contribute to the communities, such as prohibiting long hours for workers or providing a well for a mining village. This year, a portion of our proceeds with go toward supporting a village school in Malawi, Africa.

The response to our fair-trade events has been inspiring. People are so relieved to find us, to learn more about the gemstones and about our little shop, with our traditional design, carving and casting we do to create unique artisan jewelry.

With fair-trade gems and local, handmade jewelry, we’re giving consumers choices that they can feel good about.

Happy Holidays from Trios Studios and don’t forget to visit us this season!

HARNISH PROPERTIES - Justin HarnishThis is a great community, for which we give heartfelt thanks.

The homes in our area are special and unique. However, it is not only the homes that make Lake Oswego special to me.

Living here since 1978, and now blessed by being a principal in Harnish Properties (active since 1982), has allowed me to meet and be thankful for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of those people who make our community special.

In our frantic and frenetic daily lives, there is so much for which to be thankful.

Thanks to my parents, extended family, wife, children and friends. Thanks to my dedicated co-workers. Thanks to appraisers, lenders and our title company partners.

Thanks to the City of Lake Oswego, mayor, council, staff, police, firefighters, parks workers, street department and maintenance (and those who put up the beautiful holiday lights).

Thanks to the school district, administrators, teachers, coaches, staff, volunteers and janitors.

Thanks gas station workers, doctors, nurses, dentists, lawyers, grocery workers, electricians, plumbers, builders and restaurants. Thanks coffee shops, dry cleaners and health clubs.

Thanks to our churches and those who serve our community’s heart and soul.

In short, we could triple our “problems” and we’d still be in the best place in the world.

Thanks, America! Thank God we are here, free, blessed and enjoying the beauty of Oregon and the people that make our every day possible.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

EVCOT - Jonathan Wisniewski, DVMThe holiday season is upon us, and many pet parents plan to include their furry companions in the festivities. Not to be a Grinch, but I recommend keeping a sharp eye on your pet around the following holiday perils:

The Thanksgiving feast is full of dangerous temptations for pets, including turkey carcasses, bones and candy. Keep pets away from the table (in a crate or behind a locked door), whisk away unattended plates of food and secure the lids on garbage cans.

Seasonal decorations are pretty … indigestible. Your cat will be interested in batting at glass ornaments and tinsel (which can cause digestive tract obstructions, severe vomiting, dehydration and even surgery).

Christmas tree water — which may contain fertilizers that can cause stomach upset — can become a breeding ground for bacteria and cause nausea or diarrhea.

Holiday plants, including holly, mistletoe, lilies and poinsettias, may look delicious to a pet, but ingestion can cause gastrointestinal upset or (in the case of lilies) kidney damage.

Goodies for your pet: Stick with chew toys that are basically indestructible, such as Kongs that can be stuffed with healthy foods or chew treats that are designed to be safely digestible. Stringy things are a feline's dream, but the most risky toys for cats involve ribbon, yarn and loose little parts that can get stuck in the intestines. Instead, choose a new ball that's too big to swallow, a stuffed catnip toy or an interactive cat dancer.

Happy Holidays to you and your fur babies from EVCOT!

HASSON COMPANY REALTORS - Mike HallNot all homes have soaring glass and abundant natural light, giving that airy, bright feeling we all respond well to. When prospective buyers enter a home for sale, one of the most compelling, feel-good features is light. 

As we enter the darkest time of the year, what can sellers do to make sure their home in shown in its best light?

  

· Trim trees, remove or pull back window coverings and screens, be sure every light works and is using its maximum safe wattage bulb

· Add lighting in dark corners and invest in lighter paint for dark rooms

· Where rooms are challenging, consider giving the eye something interesting to see, such as a special piece of furniture or art.  An accent that will captivate and create a mood other than just being “dark.”

· Invest in staging advice (when needed, I pay a stager to come and consult about how best to stage for buyers’ eyes).  Even if you don’t need full staging services, the designer’s eye and advice can be incredibly valuable. 

· Light it up DURING showings. I know it’s not the “green” thing to do, but turn all lights on and leave them on when there may be showings.  You’ll spend 10 or 20 extra dollars on electricity, but it’s worth it.  Showing by appointment-only, or only during daylight hours, helps manage the light.

Work with your agent to make sure your home is as bright and appealing as possible!

LAKE GROVE DENTAL - Charles Branen, DMDEvery year, we see patients exit the year without taking advantage of their dental benefits. These are benefits that the patient or their employer pays for. To those patients we say, why are you paying for those services and what are you waiting for?

For some of you, the end of the year also means the expiration of your reimbursable healthcare plan, or flexible spending account. This is an important time of year to review availability or possible loss of your account balances that may occur.

If you and your family are without dental coverage, we have a program for you that can make your care more affordable.

We call it our in-house Loyalty Plan. You pay a monthly fee that is about equal to a dental insurance premium; for that, you receive dental cleanings, examinations, X-rays and more, plus a 15 percent discount on any other services you need.

There are NO maximums or limitations like there are with insurance plans. Every patient enrolled has come out ahead with this program, according to our cost analysis. Patients who need extensive services have saved greatly, in some cases, because of the low maximums dental benefit providers allow.

With only two months left in the year, get your appointment scheduled now; December is already filling fast!

HARNISH PROPERTIES - Justin HarnishQ. We would like to buy a house, but homes are listed and sold so quickly these days, we’re frustrated. What do you recommend?

In certain price categories and in certain locations, this is very common. The inventory is swarmed when it hits the market and many times, the subject home won’t hit the market. In this scenario, it’s essential to have a Buyer’s Agent who will communicate with the neighborhood listing brokers and offices to ensure you, the buyer, get a shot at the new inventory!

Q. How do brokers find homes that may be on the market soon?

In every marketplace there is a “shadow market,” commonly called a “pocket listing.” Most Listing Brokers have listings that are “coming soon,” or are able to be shown prior to listing. A good Buyer’s Agent communicates with the area Listing Agents who specialize in a certain price range or neighborhood.

Q. What are the advantages to hiring a broker who has sold homes in the target market for many years?

Expertise, market knowledge and a strong customer and referral base. When a broker can stand in the back yard of a home and knows what most of the neighboring homes sold for and who owns them, it’s helpful to a buyer. This same broker will have a very good handle on the shadow market as well.

Don’t go it alone in this fast-moving market! An experienced agent will take the worry off your shoulders and get the job done.
