SKIN CARE

 

What is your body’s largest organ? The SKIN is the body’s largest organ! It covers the entire body and serves as a protective shield against heat, light, injury, and infection. Taking care of your skin is so important and also the doctor who you trust your skin to is also important! Below are some reasons I chose to go to the dermatologist I have been going to for close to 10 years now at Skin Wellness Dermatology!

SKIN WELLNESS DERMATOLOGY VIRTUAL OPEN HOUSE

Eczema

I love to go to Skin Wellness and have for many years now!  Dr. Hartman and his team are always professional and knowledgeable of both mine and my husband’s skincare needs. I learned the hard way that not all Dermatology offices are the same. I went to another dermatology office in Birmingham before Skin Wellness and they misdiagnosed a spot on my skin as ringworm when it was eczema. For over a month I used this cream on spots on my skin for what was thought to be ringworm and I decided to get a second opinion with Dr. Hartman and it was eczema. Dr. Hartman knew right away and did not question it at all. The eczema cleared up with the topical medication and the switch to a new lotion and moisturizer, CereVe. I knew I would not trust my skin with anyone else.

The Shingles

Last year when I walked in on a guy that had broken into our home and was able to get away from him, I broke out into a really bad case of shingles soon after. There was a horrible rash on the right side of my body – front and back. I thought it was from stress or even eczema again. I remember emailing Dr. Hartman asking if I could get in right away because it wasn’t getting any better. It was hurting and I couldn’t sleep or rest on my side and anything that touched my body was giving me a lot of pain. I went in to see Dr. Hartman and immediately he I had shingles. He had so much empathy for the situation and I was so grateful for his kindness and correct diagnosis to get the shingles under control. It was a bad but after 4 weeks, it began to clear up. I have since had the series of the shingles vaccine.

Rosacea

I recently had a breakout on my forehead and cheeks and it began to get worse. I went to Dr. Hartman and he knew right away that it was rosacea. It sometimes develops as you age and can also be hereditary. With medication, I was able to get it under control. Dr. Hartman also recommended a new facial cleanser for redness, those with rosacea and with sensitive skin called Restorsea. I have also linked it below.

Botox

I have also trusted Dr. Hartman to speak to him about cosmetic fillers.  After I turned 40, I had really noticed my skin begin to change and the wrinkles on my forehead and in between my brows begin to get deeper and more defined. I was then super curious to know more about Botox. I wanted to give it a try in a small way. So, Dr. Hartman started with a small amount of Botox in a few places: in between my eyes/brows, forehead and crow’s feet around eyes. I have really loved it! I have seen such a difference and also have squinted less in the sun. I have been going about 3 times a year for a few years now. I would recommend this and trust Dr. Hartman to listen to each patient and what they want. He does not push products and does what is right for you.

Restylane

About a month ago, I asked Dr. Hartman about a hyaluronic acid dermal filler product called Restylane for underneath my eyes. I wanted to give this a try to lessen the dark circles under my eyes and also plump the skin a little. There was an injection for numbing and then an injection of the hyaluronic acid filler under the skin underneath each eye. There was little swelling after but no bruising. A before and after picture was taken at the appointment and I saw real results immediately. I still have some of the injectable left for touch ups and can use the rest at anytime. This hyaluronic product is known to last for a year.

Skin Wellness

Dr. Hartman and the Skin Wellness team is excellent and appointments are always on time. I would not go anywhere else for my skincare and dermatology care. Dr. Hartman is always knowledgeable, personable and kind.  The new Skin Wellness Center is also a beautiful and super clean facility. I recommend Skin Wellness and Dr. Hartman to all of my family and friends!

Restorsea PRO Reviving Cleanser

I have recently found out I have Rosacea and this facial cleanser is good to use for those with sensitive skin, redness and rosacea. I use this every time I wash my face and have seen a difference in the redness and breakouts.

SkinCeuticals Retinol 1.0

I’ve been using Retinol for a few years now. I started out using the 0.5 % concentration and then began using the 1.0% concentration, which is the highest concentration of pure retinol. Retinol 1.0 is proven to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin discoloration while minimizing breakouts and the appearance of pores. I use a small amount on my face and neck every evening after I shower and moisturize.

CereVe Moisturizing Cream

I have had a few spots of eczema over the years and Dr. Hartman recommended CereVe Moisturizing Cream and I have loved using this since. CereVe has really hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid that plumps the skin and also seals the moisture in.

Skin Wellness 10:2 Clarifying Treatment Pads

 

I noticed more in the summer after sweaty workouts my skin would break out. These medicated pads are specially formulated to help cleanse and clear acne prone skin.

Colorescience Sunforgettable Brush-On Sunscreen SPF 30

This easy brush-on powder gives a hydrating finish after applying makeup and also has Sunscreen protection. It is great alone, too, after you moisturize.  It is 100% chemical-free and also full of antioxidants. This on-the-go, convenient portable brush that has antimicrobial bristles to maintain freshness.
