Derek Norcom, MD
American Board of Family Practice
International Academy of Cosmetic Dermatology
Dr. Norcom graduated from the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine in 1994. A passion for skin care began in medical school when he realized the enormous social and psychological impact of skin disorders. He personally suffered from severe acne as an adolescent and the side effects of the acne treatment medication Accutane.
A drive to become an excellent practitioner in the care of skin has led to hours of extended reading and conference attendance, including elective private and academic training in dermatology and dermatopathology. He continues to ardently follow skin care literature, especially aesthetic medicine and acne treatment. Dr. Norcom is also very interested in the connections between nutrition, antioxidant supplementation, skin health, aging, and cancer prevention. He is currently Board certified through 2014.
His personal philosophy of medicine can be best summed by a quote on the wall at Harvard Medical School which reads, "The best way to care for the patient is to care about the patient."

After graduating from the Aesthetic Institute in Portland, Wendy attended University of Oregon and PSU, focusing on communication and public relations. "After being diagnosed with basal cell skin cancer I began to realize that taking care of my skin was a serious matter. I loved the sun and like many of us, spent hours “laying out”. I lived a short time in the Hawaiian Islands, so I got a lot of sun exposure. It was then that I became interested in skin care and decided to make a career out of it." Wendy enjoys learning and finds the aesthetic industry fascinating. She is current on the latest trends and technologies. She believes understanding the science behind the products, attention to detail and individualized customer service is the best formula for quality care.
Sue obtained an International diploma in Esthetics and body treatments after completing a 2 year full-time course in 1984. Over the years she has kept up with the latest technology and approaches to skin care through reading, training and learning directly from her clients. She believes in a balanced approach to all aspects of life including skin care. In her practice she first examines the face and advises clients on how to best take care of their skin. Acupressure points and massage are then used on the face to create a powerful restorative effect on the skin, mind and body thus revealing healthier skin.
