How I focus on you as a patient:
1 — Communication
Communication is key to a good team, and I want you to have the freedom to effortlessly communicate with me all of your skin’s goals and thoughts about your skin. I will discuss all available treatments at Happy Clinic® and which lasers will work best with your skin. With this communication between us at your initial consultation, we can then effectively collaborate to figure out how to begin to tackle all of the skin issues that have been on your mind! I will ask you how well your skin tolerates during and after any procedure before determining your next step.
2 — Expertise
I have been lucky to work with various skin types, from very fair skin tones to darker shades. This experience has allowed me to fine-tune my methods for different individuals as one laser does not always fit all skin types! After your consultation, I will create your skin’s rejuvenation plan by determining what treatments offer the results that you are looking for. We will rule out options to your perfect formula by incorporating your skin type, your daily activities, the current season and any pertinent medical history relating to your skin.
3 — Positivity
It’s easy for one to feel embarrassed about the things that bother them, but if there’s anything I want you to take away from me besides improved skin is self-love. Don’t be mean to yourself. In any season (including seasons where you don’t feel great about the appearance of your skin), always add positivity and remind yourself of the good things that we tend to forget. We all have things that we want to improve on, but we must always choose to be kind to ourselves. I am happy you are taking your first step here and including me in your skin’s journey.
