Contour Dermatology shines disco ball on CVVIM, donates $5,000

To borrow a phrase from the ‘70s, Contour Dermatology’s Day of Beauty on May 14 was “far out, man!” The disco ball was shining the light on beauty treatments and a local nonprofit organization. The event benefited Coachella Valley Volunteers in Medicine (CVVIM), which provides about 4,000 health care visits annually to more than 1,000 low-income residents.

Contour Dermatology made a $5,000 donation to benefit this community resource.

Guests enjoyed “Boogie Wonderland” and other retro music while receiving rejuvenating treatments like facial fillers, lasers, CoolSculpting, microdermabrasion and physician-grade skincare products. Among the live procedures attendees had the opportunity to watch were an upper blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and Voluma filler injections performed by Timothy Jochen, MD, and Dermapen with PRP infusion and a Fraxel laser treatment performed by Alejandro Nuñez, RN.

Doug Morin, executive director of Coachella Valley Volunteers in Medicine, shared an update on his organization. The big news is the nonprofit will expand its services in July by opening a Palm Springs satellite office at the Las Palmas Medical Plaza to serve the West Valley better.

“We have some good reserves that we’ve put away for a number of years. So, the board is taking a chance to say that if this is our mission to provide services to uninsured and low-income people, we need to make sure we are doing that,” Morin said. “We have an opportunity right now, and we’re taking a bit of a risk by doing this, but we are also very confident the community will step up with ongoing donations.
