NEW! Gold Standard Microneedling by SkinStylus

The SkinStylus® Microneedling System is a revolutionary minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin to create controlled skin injuries and stimulate growth of new collagen. Doing this improves fine lines and wrinkles, pores, scarring and helps even skin tone with a series of treatments and high quality skin care.

Microneedling with the SkinStylus® can be alternated with other treatments such as fractional laser therapy, chemical peels, IPL, and other modalities.

The cost of a microneedling facial treatment is $425/session and includes a post procedure skin care kit valued at $192. Results are best achieved when done in a series of 4+ treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

NEW! Botanical Based Skin Care Line

We’ve picked up a new skin care line and we’re in love. Epionce is a clinically proven botanically based line that is sodium laurel sulfate free, gluten free, fragrance free, paraben free and animal cruelty free.

These dermatologist-backed products contain restorative botanical ingredients to improve the overall health and appearance of the skin. Unlike many other products on the market, Epionce does not contain harsh ingredients that irritate the skin or cause unnecessary dryness. The result is healthier, younger-looking skin.

From improving the visible appearance of skin aging to problem skin, Epionce can be incorported into your skin care regimen to solve your specific skin concerns.

Our skin changes with the seasons and our skin care regimen should, too! Be sure to check out our feature on styleblueprint.com to learn more on skin tips to stay healthy this summer.

 

“If you are rarely outside, a product with SPF 30 is sufficient. If you are outside for extended amounts of time, you should apply a water-resistant product with SPF 30 or more. Keep in mind SPF 15 filters about 93 percent of UV radiation, while SPF 30 filters 97 percent and SPF 50 filters 98 percent. Frequent application is best. You should apply sunscreen 15 minutes before sun exposure and reapply every two hours, or after swimming or sweating. One of the best things you can do in addition to applying SPF regularly is wearing a wide-brimmed hat to reduce sun exposure.” — Maegan Griffin, MSN, NP-C

Welcome to Skin Pharm!

After practicing in Nashville for several years, I am fortunate to have built a following of fresh-faced women and founded my cosmetic dermatology practice, Skin Pharm.

Skin Pharm specializes in aesthetic medicine including cosmetic injections, advanced skin care, laser therapy and acne treatments. If you are a current patient of mine, you will continue to visit the same location. If you are a new patient, our office is located off West End near Saint Thomas West hospital.

I would not be in the position to open my own practice without each and every one of my clients. I am honored by the trust you have in me caring for you, your friends, and your families. The Skin Pharm team is very excited about this new venture and we look forward to seeing you soon!

 

Sincerely,

Maegan Griffin, MSN, NP-C
