Skin presentation is the outward manifestation of the health of the internal body. Addressing skin health always involves improving the health of the organs inside. Healing the skin always is best served with an integrative approach. In addition to medical skin care, we offer many aesthetic services. We believe that being happy with one’s appearance is essential to mental well-being.
The essence of great skin health is great health in general. When one eats a healthy diet, filled with vegetables, fruits, nuts, and healthful proteins, gets proper sleep, has balanced hormones, adequate exercise, and managed stress, the skin will radiate health and wellness. No cosmetics or lasers can ever create the effects on the skin of an excellent lifestyle. Therefore, the first step to healthy, youthful skin is acquiring a healthy lifestyle. Many medical conditions have a skin component, including psoriasis, eczema, acne, and rosacea. These conditions often respond well to nutrition alterations, GI Detoxification, herbal supplementation, and holistic services.
While we work to correct the damage caused lifestyle choices, our aesthetician, Kris Murray, helps to rejuvenate your skin with a wide selection of skin care treatments – peels, facials, and microdermabrasions. We emphasize the use of organic, non-toxic skin care products.
When time, the sun, and lifestyle mistakes have taken a greater toll, we often recommend the use of cosmetic lasers, BotoxCosmetic, and Dermal Fillers to restore the youthful look of by-gone years. We provide many options, allowing the patient to choose the form of therapy he or she wishes. Our aesthetic nurse, Huguette Hoffman, performs most of our lasers, Botox and dermal filler injections. If specially requested, Dr. Gersh will perform your dermal filler injection. She is a skilled, advanced injector.
