DESCRIBE YOUR SKIN CARE PHILOSOPHY.
Less is more. I like to do lots of little things to create very dramatic and satisfying results— I tend not to emphasize any one particular treatment. I like to carefully listen to my patients and find out what bothers them. I then create a program that blends several techniques to give them the results they desire. As a clinical professor of dermatology, I teach to strengthen my specialty and keep my skills sharp to provide
the highest quality of care I can for my patients.
WHY DO YOU COMBINE
To achieve dramatic results, it is not really about using only one procedure or product. I like to blend lots of different treatments and products in order to achieve patients’ desired results.
HOW WOULD YOUR PATIENTS CHARACTERIZE YOU?
Time and time again, patients say, “I really trust you. I have always felt that you’ve given me your honest opinion and best recommendations, and I don’t feel like I am trying to be up-sold on procedures or products I don’t want or need.” I believe “less is more,” and that approach gives our patients beautiful, natural-looking results. My patients’ friends should have no idea they’ve had anything done, only that they look fantastic. In fact, I like to say their friends should be “enviously confused.”
WHAT IS YOUR MAIN GOAL
FOR YOUR PATIENTS ON
A SKIN-CARE PROGRAM?
My goal is to provide the highest-quality skin care in a gentle, natural manner so patients look confident and refreshed. I don’t want my patients to look different than their age, just great for their age.
