Happy New Year 2022 Newsletter



I love January because it is a time of reflection, resolutions and forgiveness. It is a brand new exciting year, and it is time to plan. Let bygones be bygones. Now is the time to take stock, and plan what to do next.  This year seems special to me because it looks a bit like our phone number: 503-445-2200.

Reflect back on the past year and think about all that has happened. Then ask yourself, "Did I respond well? Could I have done better? Did I let myself go?"

When I think of the past, the first person I think of is my mother. She passed away in 2002, yet she always stays fresh in my mind. My mom went on dialysis when she was 37 until she died at 64. When I was very young, I dutifully helped with cleaning, laundry, and cooking, typically with her close by.

I resented chores at the time, but now I realize they were a privilege.  She often said things, while I did them, that have permanently stuck in my head. Some things may sound cliché, but I worry that my sons may not know them because they often have earbuds in their ears, they get their info from YouTube and I had spared them the responsibility of chores.

My words of wisdom, and code of conduct thanks to my mom:
1. Take care of yourself first, then you will be better able to care for others.
2. Listening is more important than talking.
3. If you don't have something nice to say, then don't say anything at all.
4. If you are going to do something, make sure you do it right, or not at all.
5. Waste not, want not.
6. Treat people the way you want to be treated. Everyone deserves your respect.
7. Don't judge someone without walking in their shoes first.
8. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
9. You are capable of doing _anything_ , as long as you are willing to work for it.
10. Never depend on a man.

To be fair, here are the words of wisdom from my father:
Get an education; they can never take that away from you.

Why say all that in a newsletter? Because if you look back over the past 1-2 years and realize that you haven't been taking very good care of yourself... we want you to know that you have a safe place, a resource here with Klein Dermatology & Associates to get back on track and start taking care of yourself better. We have serious tools here, you just have to ask. I know it can be a bit overwhelming.

  Avoid Lime Juice before Laser Procedures and the Sun  

There is a substance in lime juice that when applied to the skin then exposed to the sun creates a rash problem we call phytophotodermatitis. In addition, if one were to ingest orally a lot of lime, and then get a laser or IPL type of treatment done afterwards - that could lead to burns. I see products on the shelves often that say they are a Coconut Lime type of thing and I always wonder why. Any dermatologist would never put lime juice or extract into a topical product like a moisturizing cream. A trip to Mexico with a little piece of lime stuck in a Corona beer often leads to a dermatology visit.


Here's to 2022 and let's hope its a great year!

Insurance Changes and Lisa Peters is Moving Away

Lisa Peters FNP Leaving in June 2021

One of my two nurse practitioners, Lisa Peters, has decided it is time to move on. She is moving to Idaho to be closer to her mother. We are sad to see her go. Jamie Barbara FNP is still here and available to see patients.

I have 3 RNs available for cosmetic procedures: Leslee, Careline and Allie. Leslee has worked with me for 19 years, and is a wife and mother as well. Careline joined us in October, works part-time and is going to OHSU's Nurse Practitioner program. Allie is our most recent addition, and is being trained in Botox and fillers currently by yours truly. In addition, my assistant Erin is working on her RN degree, as is Michelle. Fawn loves doing the Hydrafacials.

Regarding Insurance Companies
The last few years the insurance companies have escalated their efforts to put obstacles between you the patient and the prescriptions and treatments you need. The overhead of running my business is too high. Five of my employees spend the majority of their time working on prior authorizations (PAs) for medications, PAs for procedures, benefits check, checking the notes to make sure enough documentation is present, sending out claims, receiving denials, and appealing claims. Often the work is futile, it is always frustrating, and I can't stand it anymore. I have to say, "STOP!" the only way I know how...which is by breaking up with them.

The patient may be in the exam room for 10 minutes, but after they leave it takes about 20-25 minutes to write the chart note. They are now three full typed pages long! Still the insurance company denies claims saying it lacks the "appropriate" documentation. They actually want us to measure the size of acne lesions now. My MAs/RNs spend hours trying to get prescriptions covered. They might spend 1-2 hours so you can save $10 on a tube of cream. It takes many more hours to get a biologic approved. I am not willing to do it anymore, because it is not a logical way to run a business.

Beginning October 1, 2021 we will no longer be participating with Medicare, MODA, Aetna, Cigna and UHC insurances as well as several others. This includes any Medicare with a supplemental plan type of insurance. We will not be billing them for visits, nor will we deal with their PAs. All patients with those insurance plans will still be welcome in the office, but on a self-pay basis.

We will continue to participate only with Blue Cross, Pacific Source, and Providence for now. Jamie Barbara FNP and I (Dr. Klein) will both be available for medical and cosmetic visits.

It makes me sad because I know this is goodbye to many of the medical patients I have cared for over the last 24 years. On the other hand, this should come as great news for those of you who want me to do your Sculptra or Voluma and cosmetic consultations. I know what works, come talk to me.

Please contact us if you wish to transfer your chart to another office or have a copy for yourself. There is a medical release form on our website, we just need that signed, and we will either fax or copy your chart one time at no charge.

Most importantly, please do not yell or be mean to my receptionists, this isn't their fault. If you are angry and want to vent, call your insurance company. There needs to be a reform for health insurance companies.


June - all non Rx skin products (Epionce!!) 10% off
July - Botox treatments with a NP or RN are $40 off

Celebrate life and treat yourself well,

We are Open Again

We are open again, as the first phase of businesses reopening after the COVID-19 crisis.

I am happy to announce that KDA is open again and ready to meet your dermatology needs. I have been concerned about being temporarily closed and not being able to do our routine screening for melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers. We diagnosed nine (9) melanomas in January and February. Since closed mid March, we have not diagnosed a single one. If you haven't been seen in over a year, and you are ready to leave your home, please call us at 503-445-2200 to schedule your appointment. It is vital to catch melanomas and treat them while they are still in an early phase.

Regarding COVID-19, this is what we are doing:

* Every employee is wearing a mask when with patients.
* We have fewer patients than normal in office (<50%).
* We are spacing employees 6 feet or more apart from each other.
* We have fewer employees than normal at work.
* No one is allowed to come to work if they or anyone at their home has been sick in the last 2 weeks.
* We wash our hands with soap and hot water frequently.
* The assistants are disinfecting the rooms and doorknobs in between every patient.
* We are offering TELEHEALTH appointments with our nurse practitioner Jamie Barbara whenever possible. (Full skin exams require a live visit with either Lisa Peters NP or Marla Klein MD)
* Any immune-compromised employee is staying home.
* We are postponing the following types of appointments: Hydrafacials, microdermabrasion, microneedling, IPL, chemical peels and lip fillers.

Here is what we are asking of patients:
* Come alone to appointments if you are over 18 years old.
* Wear a mask.
* When you arrive for your appointment, call from the parking lot before entering building. We are trying to avoid having more than one person in the waiting room at a time.
* Wash your hands frequently.
* Remember to do your best not to touch your nose, eyes, or mouth.
* In addition to a mask, when you cough or sneeze, use your elbow.

Please reschedule your appointment:
* if anyone in your home has been sick in the last 2 weeks
* if you have had a fever, cough, or shortness of breath in the last 2 weeks
* if you or anyone in your family has been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the last 3 weeks.

Regarding our hours: 

We are open Monday - Friday. Our hours right now are a mystery to me. We will start every business day out as normal, ready to see patients. If there aren't many patients we will go home early that day. For the next week or so our hours will be 8:00 am - 4:00 pm. We would like to see our hours go back to normal which were 8 am -5 pm. We will adapt, and we will be here for you. If you see a treatment you want, and don't see it mentioned above, please call us.

If you know someone who isn't on our newsletter list, please forward this to them.   www.kda-derm.com

Good job everyone at staying home and keeping Oregon safe,
Marla Klein, MD

True story:   I used to tell my two sons that staying inside and playing video games the entire day was simply not healthy. They have now proven me wrong.

Sunscreen Controversy
Recently more patients have been bringing up the topic of, "Is sunscreen safe?" The answer is, "YES! Safe and strongly recommended!"

But why are they asking now? In the USA, sunscreens are classified as an over-the-counter drug, and thus regulated by the FDA. Recently, the FDA asked the sunscreen manufacturer's to give them more data on some chemical sunscreens, but the FDA still recommends that people apply sunscreen. Some media have a strange way of twisting the facts to sensationalize their stories.

No controversy exists around the zinc oxide and titanium dioxide sunscreens, also referred to as barrier or mineral sunscreens. They are "GRASE" meaning generally regarded as safe and effective. In addition, places with coral reefs approve of the zinc and titanium sunscreens, in that they won't harm the reefs.

The controversy is over the chemical sunscreens: oxybenzone, avobenzone, ocisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate. What is the controversy? The FDA just wants more data on these chemicals. No one has said that they aren't safe and to stop using them. So what if they can be found in your blood? I'd rather have sunscreen in my blood than melanoma cells in my blood.

Please, to reduce skin cancer and aging skin, please seek shade, wear a hat and apply sunscreen on a regular basis. Oregon and Washington are among the top five states in the country regarding number of skin cancers diagnosed and treated.

Coming Soon
We will soon be able to accept payments for medical visits via our website portal. It is being set up now. Details will be in our next newsletter.

Special Offers
August 22, 2019 - Botox Bonanza Day ($10/unit with Alicia or Jamie)
September 19, 2019 - Cool Event - get 15% off & maybe win a prize
October - Sculptra is 15% off with Dr. Klein, scheduling now and Botox is $40 off (with a 20U minimum with Alicia or Jamie)

Effective Treatment for Cold Sores
Cold sores, also called fever blisters, are a common viral infection caused by the herpes virus (HSV). For those of you that haven't heard, there is a very effective Rx pill for people who have this problem called Valtrex, sometimes referred to as the blue horse pill. Summertime is a common time for these to flare, triggered by the sun. Cold sores are also triggered by stress. At the first sign of tingling/itching called the prodrome phase, if one takes the Valtrex, the blisters might not even surface. Only four pills need be taken for the entire treatment. There are all sorts of over the counter treatments, but Valtrex works the best and is completely safe. If you have been in the office in the last 12 months, just give us a call and we can send a Rx to the pharmacy for you. If you haven't been seen in the office this year, call to make an appointment. Don't let these outbreaks bring down your summertime enjoyment.

What is New at Klein Dermatology & Associates? Babies!

Our latest wonderful news is that nurse Leslee has had her 2nd daughter, Allison Marie, and is now back to work and helping us out. She does a lot of behind the scenes work in relation to prior authorization letters and requests, billing, administrative work, CoolSculpting, and helping with medical dermatology patients.

Allison Marie

Born 02/05/18 @ 3:07 pm
7 lbs. 10 0z. and 20 inches long

Ashley, who is a receptionist and an M.A. at our office had her little boy Thorin James, just a couple weeks ago. Normally you might see her super friendly face at the front desk helping patients, but we expect she will be out a few more weeks with her little one. We are happy to report that both babies are healthy and doing well.

Thorin James

Born: 3/14/18 at 3:28 am
8 lbs. 3 oz. 20.5 inches long


We are Now Ready to "Dual Sculpt!"

Our new CoolSculpting Suite is now open. It is located on the lower level of our building. It is a luxurious space we have added for the greater comfort of our patients and staff. It has a VIP parking space next to the back entrance which is close to the suite.

We have 2 CoolSculpting machines now and the next Cool Event is on April 5th.

We will be hosting a Mother's Day Special for the month of May for CoolScupting. 10% off each and the ability to sit and visit together while you both get your treatments done. There is also a TV and Echo/Alexa music for people who prefer to be alone for treatments.

Call us at 503-445-2200


Do you want pretty feet for summer?

The best way to soften feet with lots of callouses and thick skin is to use a Urea cream. This 40% strength has been Rx for as long as I can remember, and now you can get it over the counter without a prescription for only about $10 at some drugstores. The method is to apply cream at night to heels and rough areas before bed, put on socks. In the morning shower, or soak feet in water, then use a good tool to pumice off all that dead skin that the cream softened up. If you have ugly toenails, then you could get started right away on something to treat fungus like Lamisil pills or a topical such as Jublia or Lamisil.

SPF Clothing

The easiest way to protect you and your loved one's skin is to use special clothing with added sun protection. You can find these type of clothes at many places, for example Land's End, Athleta, Coolibar and Patagonia. Regular shirts don't do an adequate job of protecting the skin, because they only filter at a level of about 5. Try getting SPF 50 or SPF 100 clothing for better protection to prevent skin cancer! Get your skin checked once a year to screen for melanoma and other skin cancers.

MAY SPECIAL: 15% OFF Sculptra

JUNE SPECIAL: 10% off all nonRx Skin Care Products

Reminder - all of our non-prescription skin care products are 10% off for the month of June. June is a great time to stock up on your favorite SkinMedica, Epionce and EltaMD products. SkinMedica products are part of Allergan/Brilliant Distinctions.

Take Great Care of Your Skin,

CoolSculpting Exceeds Expectations!

CoolSculpting Logo


CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive way to permanently remove pockets of fat using a machine to freeze the targeted fat and destroy it permanently.  After attending a dermatology conference in February 2017, where I listened to Dr. Suzanne Kilmer's presentation on the various body contouring devices that are now available, I decided to find out more about CoolSculpting®.

I had been somewhat aware of CoolSculpting prior to this meeting, but I was also jaded and disappointed from my history of buying other devices in the past.   They either failed to do what they promised or worked great but the patients weren't interested in spending the money to replace the cost of the machine.  Therefore, I really had no intention of buying anymore lasers/machines.

However, having known Dr. Kilmer for years, I strongly respect her opinions and admire her contributions to dermatology.   At this meeting, she discussed CoolSculpting with great enthusiasm.  When I realized that she had worked on creating CoolSculpting  with the genius scientist dermatologist Dr. Rox Anderson - - that was enough for me, I knew I had to get one.

In March, we received our CoolSculpting machine and training and we have been using it non-stop since.  There is no problem finding staff or patients who want to remove a pocket of fat here or there on their bodies.   I'm grateful for that.   Now that it is August we have only had the machine five months, and we are ecstatic about the results we are seeing in our staff and patients!


 CoolSculpting® is an Alternative to Liposuction

Years ago I performed tumescent liposuction.  It was gratifying to see the results, but it was hard work, and it took a great toll on my shoulder and elbow.   Liposuction is invasive and has its risks, plus the patients need to be mildly sedated and need time off of work.  There is also the messy drainage and garments.

Comparing CoolSculpting to liposuction is a simple "no-brainer".    CoolSculpting® is very safe.  It involves no drugs, no needles, no surgeon, no downtime and gets great results - CoolSculpting is absolutely amazing!

CoolSculpting was approved in 2009, and it has been tweaked several times since.  I have heard it was quite painful with the older parallel plate model they had.  The skin had to be pulled out and held between parallel cooling plates for an entire hour.  (Picture a mammogram in your mind, for an hour, super cold.)  Since then, they have changed the applicators to be more like a goggle-sized applicator cup with a little bit of suction, and it isn't painful at all.  Also, it is faster, each cycle with an applicator takes approximately 35 minutes.  The mini and the outer thigh applicators take longer.


It Works Efficiently

I expected it to work, based on my research and what Dr. Kilmer had shown at the meeting, but I still didn't expect it to work quite this well.   The roll around my waist was gone after one session (lost more than 2 inches!)  so I can understand why they say this can get addicting.  We are making double chins disappear, cinching waists and flattening abdomens.   A major breakthrough is how well it treats "bra fat" (those annoying rolls on the back) and "bat wings" on the arms!   Oh yes, we are very happy with what we are seeing in our follow-ups.    Although the machine's indication is for fat reduction (but not weight loss) we are seeing a great deal of skin tightening happening as a bonus, even on our patients in their 70's!  That is something liposuction did not do.

Besides doing the initial training and become a "Certified" CoolSculpting center, Jamie, Tasha and I also recently went to the CoolSculpting University for advanced training.  I think the tips they gave have been very helpful and have improved our results as well.  Our nurse Leslee will be going soon.

Consultations are free and necessary before scheduling a treatment session.  They can be scheduled with Tasha Gouin ANP or Jamie Barbara ANP (both are nurse practitioners) by calling 503-445-2200.  A treatment plan needs to be devised.  One or two sessions typically are needed per area.


Cool Events

We will be offering some "Cool Events" in the near future so that patients can learn more about CoolSculpting.   Cool Events are designed to be an educational event, where the patient can get transformation consultations and event-only pricing (15% off discounts).   Our Cool Events will be posted on our Facebook page.   We can only have about 15 patients do this per event, so  invitations and RSVP's will be required.  (We order food too.)  If you are interested in attending a CoolEvent, please call the office and let one of the receptionists know.

I look forward to seeing you soon,

  Klein Dermatology & Associates - the place for all your skin care needs


Call for an appointment 503-445-2200, phones are open M-F 8-12:30 and 1:30- 5 pm

1. BOTOX $40 OFF  (20 unit minimum) this is a treatment to treat wrinkles between the brows and by the Crow's feet (and so much more). This special price is only applicable when scheduled with Alicia, Jamie or Tasha. You may also add on Brilliant Distinctions coupons.
2. Volbella $50 OFF  This is the latest HA filler by Allergan, thin, lasts 1 year, and especially well suited to lips and perioral lines and smoothing out the lips without making them big. Being referred to as the internal lip gloss in my medical meeting. Schedule with Dr. Klein or Alicia.
3. Hair Removal Laser 20% OFF typically requires 3-4 treatments scheduled 6-8 weeks apart. Please schedule with Tasha or Jamie.  Imagine having smooth underarms, bikini and legs that you never have to spend time shaving anymore.  It is a huge time-saver!

BOTOX BONANZA DAY is April 27th. BOTOX is only $10/unit that one day and can only be scheduled with Tasha, Jamie, or Alicia. It does not combine with the $40 OFF special.   Schedule now if you want to be included in this amazing special.



Elta MD UV Clear is my absolute favorite sunscreen for the face.  It is zinc based, meaning it is not a chemical sunscreen, and therefore good for sensitive skin.  It is micronized and it doesn't block pores.  It doesn't make acne worse or cause milia for most patients.  In the summer, remember to protect your skin with a hat, shade, sunscreen and SPF clothing.  Re apply sunscreen every 3-4 hours if you are outside.  We sell this at the front desk.  $28 a can.

Open for appointments Monday - Friday from 7:30 am - 5:30 pm
Hair Removal laser appointments are typically scheduled towards end of day.

Tanned skin (whether by sun or self-tanner) cannot be treated with the hair removal laser. This laser works best on dark hair and fair skin, particularly the armpits, bikini region and lower legs.

Besides being an expert in skin care ... now as the business owner I am leanring better ways to display my work.  If you haven't checked out the KDA website for awhile, the latest addition to the Klein Dermatology & Associates website is a section called "BEFORE & AFTER".   This shows the natural type of work we do here.   We are not extremists by any means, and I can't stand it when I see celebrities with those weird up front giant cheeks that make their eyes look weird when they smile.  Patients must consent to this before anything can be shown, so each of the patients has given their full consent.  In the world of aesthetic dermatology, being able to show one's work is important because it is artistry, and the result is going to be different with Botox and fillers depending on who is performing the procedure.

I'm learning to make videos too.  I've bought some different cameras and software... but so far I can tell you that the very EASIEST way is to use the phone version of QUIK, and it is FREE!  I can show you the first video I've ever made.



I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving,

Marla Klein M.D.
