Self-confidence is an important part of the equation for personal and professional success, and it’s easier for some than others. Our self-confidence begins forming from the moment we are born. Many components affect the development of our self-esteem from the way we are raised, to how people talk to us and how we experience life, but the way we feel about our appearance is also a major contributor to our self-confidence. Dr. Summer and her staff at Lewisville Laser & Aesthetics work with their patients to recommend individualized treatment plans from skin care to weight management to help you look and feel your best and be a more self-confident and
beautiful you in the year to come!
Taking a Resolution One Step Further
Since 2009, Dr. Leigh Summer has been offering the services of laser treatment and aesthetics at Lewisville Laser & Aesthetics, including skin care products, facials and weight management in an effort to help her patients achieve their desired outcomes. “With the new year, many of us have made promises, plans for change and resolutions to do things better or differently this year,” said Dr. Summer. “The beginning of a resolution is having the resolve to make that change. At Lewisville Lawer & Aesthetics, we take our patients’ resolve to change or transform a step further, helping them to move their decisions into actions. I believe in having my patients comfortable, in a setting with no obligations or pressure, addressing their questions and concerns about a specific treatment. That is why offering free consultations is so important. When individuals come in with something they want to change to feel better about themselves, it is important to let them know all the options they have to achieve their desired goals. A person may come in believing they need a particular treatment, but there might be other ways to achieve their desired result, and making sure they are informed is where our patient care begins. Consultation is very important in knowing what a person expects from a treatment and gives him or her a realistic expectation of the results. If the decision is made to proceed, patients like the fact that this is a ‘physician driven practice’ with each procedure overseen or performed by myself, which is uncommon in most places that offer aesthetics.”
From Having Resolve to Having a Plan
For Dr. Summer and her staff, taking a patient from the decision to make a change to having a plan to accomplish that change begins with information and expert patient care. “Perhaps you want to feel more confident in your overall appearance,” said Dr. Summer. “We can help you achieve more youthful radiant skin through prescribed professional skin care lines, such as Neocutis, Glotherapeutics and Clarity MD. It may seem a bit of a reach to suggest that smoother skin may make your day-to- day life ‘smoother’ as well, but many of our patients testify that people respond to them differently when they don’t appear angry or tired. Botox can help to alleviate those ‘angry eyes’ that have crept into place after years of squinting. Fillers can help lift and reduce that ‘tired’ appearance. In-office treatments like microdermabrasion and professional exfoliations help to accelerate results and improve skin quality. Skin care choices are always customized to an individual’s skin type and concerns. Our techniques are intended for the enhancement of one’s appearance through minimally invasive means including treatments like Ultherapy for the tightening and lifting of skin and SkinPen which is a treatment used to stimulate your skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen formation, creating healthier skin. Beyond the treatments that we offer in the office, a good skin care regimen goes hand in hand with any treatment to keep your skin healthy and give you the best results possible. But with any change, commitment is a factor in getting the results you want from better skin to losing a few pounds.
Change Comes with Commitment
“Any treatment, skin care routine or weight management plan requires commitment,” said Dr. Summer. “For us at Lewisville Laser & Aesthetics, in our personal lives, we make exercise a part of our routine, and whether it involves running or working out at the gym, the commitment is there. The same goes for deciding to take better care of yourself from your skin to your weight. When you decide to make a change, a commitment must follow. Even with all the advancements in technology in the field of aesthetics, a treatment is only as good as the care you give your skin. When you make the investment to make a change, what you do following is very important. As the year begins, many people have made that resolution that so many of us make to eat healthier and lose a few pounds. We offer patients a physician-directed weight loss program which implements meal replacements and other foods like cereals, soups and snacks with a range of options. Each patient has a customized plan depending on their goals and their physical health. In the beginning, weekly visits help monitor a patient’s progress and provide the patient with the support he or she needs. We discuss how the previous week went and make sure they are continuing on the road to attain the goal that has been set. Should the situation call for it, medications and weight loss supplements can be prescribed, but making healthy eating and lifestyle change choices are for most patients the best way to approach long term
In the end, changes in your life can be accomplished only by you, but rarely does a person truly achieve change alone. Dr. Summer and the staff at Lewisville Laser & Aesthetics are committed to help you resolve – – ‘to convert or transform, by many processes’ — your life to help boost your self-confidence, lift your spirits or reduce your measurements leading to a healthier and happier you.
