Healthy Skin Builds a More Confident You
For almost 30 years Dr. Desjarlais has used this as a guide in his practice: Healthy Skin Builds a More Confident You. Dr. Desjarlais and his team focus on helping you on your skincare journey to be a better, more confident you, helping you to discover the best version of yourself. Even though beauty is more than skin-deep; we focus on the health and beauty of your hair, skin and nails because what’s happening on the outside can tell so much about what may be happening on the inside. One everlasting way to show yourself kindness and respect is through healthy skincare.
Self-Love through Skincare
Your skin is your largest organ. Yes, you read that right - Your skin is indeed your largest organ. Its health can translate into the overall wellness of your entire self. It is the biggest line of defense against harmful things from the outside world – germs, toxic substances, sun rays and the cold. When that line of defense weakens, some, or all, of those harmful elements can penetrate the skin and enter the body which in turn can cause bigger problems for your health.
Your skin needs some self-love and gentle care. Dermatologists are dedicated to providing care for disorders affecting the skin, hair, and nails. No one should have to live with the psychological and physical discomfort of the following conditions:
- Skin Cancers
- Hair Loss
- Spider/Varicose Veins
On any given day, a dermatologist may treat patients with melanoma, psoriasis, acne, an allergic skin reaction, warts or a nail infection. By working with a board certified dermatologist, you can develop a path to healthier skin, one of the best methods of self-love you can provide.
Dermatologists also treat cosmetic concerns such as removing unwanted hair, diminishing scars, or giving the skin a more youthful appearance. Aesthetic treatments can help with your cosmetic concerns through the use of the high-tech lasers, injectable fillers and neurotoxins (Botox), and providing medical grade skincare products. Working with an Aesthetic Center can help you meet your goals and provide you with personalized options for the following areas of concern:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Unwanted body hair
- Sun damage/hyperpigmentation
- Lip Enhancement
- Body Contouring
- Unwanted Tattoos
Our Aesthetic Team, led by Dr. Desjarlais, walks each patient through a pre-treatment consultation to discuss your skincare concerns in order to provide a personalized treatment plan, just for you.
Self-Love for the Body & Mind
Why start now? It’s Valentine’s Day! It’s the perfect time to show yourself some much-deserved self-love.
Taking care of your skin is just one of the many ways to care for yourself. Here are some of our other favorites:
- Start your day with positive self-talk.
- Eat a healthy diet that will provide nourishment and make your skin thrive.
- Drink a lot of water.
- Get moving – create a fitness routine that works for you.
- Get adequate sleep – this can improve skin appearance and mental clarity.
- Be realistic with your expectations. There is no such thing as perfect skin, all skin has flaws.
Our final tip for healthy self-love when taking care of your body goes further than exercise and nourishment: Make yourself a priority. It’s important to take care of your own health! Scheduling regular visits with your doctor is important so you’re in your best health for years to come.
