If you’re anything like me, you look back 20 or 25 years (yikes, that makes me feel old!) and cringe when you think of how negligent you were with your skin. Baking in the sun, without sunscreen, to achieve a “sun-kissed glow” was the norm. I remember in my teens being so happy when my slight burn quickly turned into a deep tan! Trying to scrub my face with those awful alcohol-soaked pads and believing that overloading on strong astringent was the only way to stop blemishes became a daily routine. There was so little known about skin health, the effects of the sun on skin, and the benefits of a preventative skin care regimen.
Fast forward a generation and skincare has grown to become an important part of whole-body health. While we now know that sun protection is a must, protecting and sustaining the body’s largest organ goes well beyond daily sunscreen usage. Proper nutrition, stress management, and positive sleep habits — in conjunction with a skincare routine — are all key factors that lead to and sustain healthy skin. It took me some time to realize that these factors worked in concert, as I began a regular skin care routine later than I should have. Small steps, though, have made a difference, and overtime have led to long term change. It’s never too late to begin a skin care routine that works for both your skin and lifestyle.
Sarah Akram Skincare offers a variety of skin care services and treatments that incorporate cutting-edge technologies to address skin challenges that many of us struggle with as we age. Fine lines, age spots, loss of skin elasticity, rosacea, and adult acne are just some of the skin issues that Sarah and her team treat. While the ideal of beginning the perfect skincare routine in our mid-20s might have been the goal, the reality is that many of us started addressing our skin issues much later in life. This doesn’t mean “all-is-lost” in terms of your skin health, it just means that you need a combination of the right people, plan, and products to get your skin health back on track.
Sarah and her team’s individual approach to skincare focuses on your current and long term skincare goals. New clients at Sarah Akram Skincare begin their first session with a skin consultation, led by a professional aesthetician, to better understand your skin’s challenges.

As your skincare needs evolve and change, Sarah and her team update your treatment regimen to meet those needs.
