Submitted to aedgett@sierrasun.comSusie Simonpietri gets a andamp;#8220;fillerandamp;#8221; from Dr. Haven Ritchie during a free medi-spa day at Sierra Cosmetic Laser.

TRUCKEE, Calif. andamp;#8212; Truckee resident Susie Simonpietri was the winner of a free medi-spa day through Sierra Cosmetic Laserandamp;#8217;s New Yearandamp;#8217;s Resolution contest. Susie was able to spend a day being pampered by Dr. Haven Ritchie and her team, while putting lifeandamp;#8217;s troubles behind.andamp;#8220;There is an emotional sadness behind my face after my 18-year-old son took his own life last year,andamp;#8221; said Susie. andamp;#8220;Taking actions toward working on my emotional aspect will always be a part of life, but itandamp;#8217;s my desire to have inner and outer peace and beauty.andamp;#8221;The treatments and procedures Susie received are the following: A one-hour massage by Donna Pooley, enhanced ski rejuvenation to address hyperpigmentation, wrinkling, red veins, general ruddiness and to even the complexion, one syringe of Juvederm Ultra Plus in the nasolabial folds (the line running from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth) and corners of the mouth and a Botox injection between the brows.andamp;#8220;Looking good for her age is something that gives any woman a boost to her confidence and mood andamp;#8230; that was my goal with Susie, not to change a thing about her, but to make her look refreshed and renewed with as little down time as possible,andamp;#8221; said Dr. Ritchie, owner of Sierra Cosmetic Laser.andamp;#8220;We sent Susie off with a monthandamp;#8217;s supply of Latisse, the amazing product that restores eyelashes and grows them long and beautiful. When I saw her back in the office four weeks later Susie was glowing! I was amazed at how the treatments made me see how much her 10-year-old daughter looks like she does,andamp;#8221; Dr. Ritchie said.andamp;#8220;I was moved by the call that I had won the contest with Sierra Cosmetic Laser andamp; Spa, to the point it brought tears of joy. It was an exciting day as I was treated with smiles, kindness and skilled professionals,andamp;#8221; said Susie. andamp;#8220;The laser treatment and filler injections were so worth the slight discomfort for the results. Itandamp;#8217;s amazing how sun spots can age us, so removing them brought back focus to my natural features. My fillers were subtle, but brought lift to areas of my face that made me feel my age again and not older when I looked at myself. To finish my spa day, I received a massage that took me to a place of relaxation, calm and peace. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to Dr. Haven Ritchie, Donna Pooley, Rebecca Cordero, and Shelly a wonderful group of supportive professional women.andamp;#8221;For more information on the treatments that Susie received or to receive a consultation from Dr. Haven Ritchie, call 530-587-0198.About Sierra Cosmetic LaserSierra Cosmetic Laser offers laser, spa services, Botox, fillers and more at their one-stop day spa in a renovated building at the western end of historic Downtown Truckee.Dr. Haven Ritchie is a graduate of the UCLA School of Medicine and is board certified in internal medicine.

First, thank you for the quick notes, some so quick that the breaking news we’d been sold had barely made it online. I read a handful of well-wishes, what’s-going-on, you-OK emails and texts while still…
