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!
