A New Year, A New You: Resolving to Treat Yourself with Kindness

Jan '18

As a New Year dawns, many people are taking a long, hard look at themselves in the mirror and not feeling their most confident. This discomfort can take many forms. Maybe you don’t like your habits, or your haircut, or the way lines form at the corners of your eyes and all around your mouth when you smile.

The impulse is to make a flood of promises to ourselves. Over the next twelve months, we’re going to do everything right: we’ll stop smoking, eat a healthier diet, never fail to get our roots touched up the minute they think about going gray, and get serious about skin care. On top of that, we’re all going to be better parents, professionals, friends, and community members.

Let’s take a deep breath and relax. Committing to a laundry list of resolutions is a sure route to accomplishing nothing – that’s just how human beings are wired. Real, meaningful transformation is a process that plays out over time. If you’re giving up smoking – and we hope you do, it’s a great move for your overall health and your skin – you’ll find that you stop smoking one cigarette at a time.

In the same way, achieving your appearance goals happens day by day, step by step. The process begins with a consultation with one of our skin care experts. In this comfortable, private setting, you can discuss what’s keeping you from being your most confident, radiant self. Every beauty challenge has a solution. We’ll present you with your options, and discuss why one solution may be more suited to you than others so you can make an informed decision.

Let’s say you’re ready to reduce the appearance of the fine lines and wrinkles in your complexion. There are many options available to you: injectable fillers , neuromodulators and treatments like Botox, JuvedermRestylane, microneedling, and a strategically designed skin care regimen that includes moisturizing products, microdermabrasion, and dermaplaning.  You’re not going to take advantage of all of these treatment options at one time; instead, it’s a process of discovery where you work in concert with SkinCenter clinicians to determine the right route to addressing your specific concerns. Some treatments have immediate results, while others restore your natural radiance over the course of time. Based on your priorities, a treatment plan will be created, and then it’s a simple process of letting your beauty shine through.

A sensible approach that puts your priorities and preferences at the center of the process is far more likely to realize meaningful, lasting results than harshly trying to impose a strict routine that attempts to address everything all at once. You really will be happier with the results if you treat yourself with kindness throughout the process. This is SkinCenter’s expertise. Let us help you help yourself.
