How Can I Freshen My Skin for Spring

May 1st, 2013 In: Skin Care

Pat R., Pfafftown: My skin looks as gray and dull as the winter landscape! I've heard that using a tanning bed really isn't a good idea, plus I'd like a longer lasting and healthier option. What can you suggest to give my skin a desperately needed and relatively inexpensive pre-spring pick-me-up?

Dr. White: Don't despair, there are many ways to improve the look and health of your skin, though using a tanning bed isn't one of them. Using a tanning bed would actually damage your skin further, leaving you with even less healthy skin.

For healthy ways to freshen your look for Spring, there are a number of both laser and non-laser treatments that are safe, proven, non-surgical, and painless, from chemical peels, to microderm, to laser resurfacing. When you come in for a consultation, you will share with us your areas of concern. I will examine your skin, we will map out a treatment plan, with pricing, and you can pick and choose what you'd like to do. The best option for you could be far simpler than you think! A little touch can make a big difference, too - one like permanent make-up to accentuate your eyes with eyeliner - and help each day that you wake up and look in the mirror a brighter one.

Couple procedure with a good skincare regiment, and your skin will keep its healthy glow. Just give us a call today and you'll be one step closer to the smooth, clear, glowing skin you want!

Cleansing And Bathing
There is a common misconception that skin needs to be "squeaky clean."
People often spend too much time as well as use too irritating soaps while
bathing. Skin is more healthy when all of the natural oils are not stripped by too
