Her Philosophy on Cosmetic Dermatology
“In order to create a skin rejuvenation plan, I begin with a consultation to determine one’s individual concerns and budget. If budget is a concern an inexpensive, effective approach is to implement the base of the pyramid below. Tretinoin (Retin A) for example helps with cell turn over and should be used for life. It’s best to invest into products that are distributed from your dermatologist. Science-based research is key when investing into your skincare in order to get the most effective treatments.”
“No age is too late to achieve a more youthful appearance”, states Andrea. “Enhancing your own natural beauty, improving your complexion, helping an area that makes you self-conscious… that’s my passion. It will help to build confidence, and a more confident you is beautiful!” says Andrea. “There is so much science and research happening in the area of cosmetic dermatology; it really is amazing!”
