The Grind

The grind. We’ve all been caught in it at some point. Wake up, go to work, feed kids, bathe kids, sleep then repeat. Our minds can easily get set on cruise control. How many times have you left your house to go somewhere on the weekend and find yourself parking at work. Am I the only one that happens to? That is exactly what happens to us with our skin goals. We go every three months for our Botox and totally forget the bottom half of our face is starting to sag. For me personally I have been caring for my face meticulously for the past 6 years. I get Botox every 4 months, a filler touch-up every six months, laser here and there and I use the GRASS routine (e-mail if you don’t know about this skincare and change your skin forever)daily for skincare. Then a couple weeks ago I, figuratively speaking, realized I was parked at work when I went to get groceries when I looked in the mirror. My neck. My poor 40 year old neck holding up my flawless 29 year old face. I was stuck in the grind and totally neglected my neck. Dr. Sandy quickly injected my neck (platysmal bands) with Botox and in the blink of an eye (1 week later) my neck went from this

Just like that I was a new woman. Best 36 units of Botox I’ve had in a LONG time. You know what the moral of the story is? For me it was treat yourself as good as you treat your patients. For you it is make sure you don’t get in the grind with your skin regimen. Five years ago we had no injections that safely treated eczema (atopic dermatitis) and today we are changing lives with it everyday. It’s called dupilimab and if you suffer with atopic dermatitis and have been in the grind with your topical creams that never get you completely clear it’s time to make an appointment with your dermatologist. Are you going to a spa and getting Botox every three months and never changing your regimen? As we age our skins needs and wants change. Margaret, Dani, Dr. Sandy and I reassess our patients at least every three months and make changes or additions or subtractions to the plan at every assessment. Sometimes we recommend filler, sometimes botox, sometimes topical regimen changes, sometimes laser, sometimes no change to what you are already doing. You always need to stay on top of it if you want to age backwards. Are you stuck in the grind? Don’t be. Whether it’s your diet, exercise routine, skin health, social health or mental health shake it up. Change is a good thing. If you would like to change your skin. E-mail or

Have a great week everyone! Back to the grind gracefully! Nina
