As a typical busy mom, my self-care has declined; certainly, skincare is no exception. I had big dreams in my 20’s that once I reached my 30’s, I’d be treating myself to all kinds of skincare maintenance and luxuries.
But then came the babies…
Not only did these precious little humans put a damper on my “thirty and thriving” plans, the physical change itself from having children exacerbated my skin issues.
Hello wrinkles, melasma, sunspots, and, my personal favorite, ‘what the heck is this?!’
When I wasn’t sure who to turn to, I reached out to the Pensacola Mom Collective team, and they introduced me to the Summit Med Spa at Ascension Sacred Heart.
I feel like I’m sharing one of my best-kept secrets with you!
The Summit Med Spa opened on October 19, 2020 and I was incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to tour their new facilities. I was able to take a peek behind the curtain at everything this location will bring to moms of any age. Once I got over the glowing interiors, I learned that Dr. Rahul Chavan offers an array of cosmetic services and also treats skin cancers (with on-site pathology and very fast turn around times for questionable things on your skin) as well as skin disorders. I had the opportunity to sit down with Dr. Chavan so that he could share his vision for this new location and all that it encompasses.
If I had to sum up the Summit Med Spa in one word, it would be ACCOMMODATING.
From the quick and easy parking that makes this new location so approachable to the face-time you receive during an initial consultation with Dr. Chavan who is a board-certified dermatologist, the Summit Med Spa unquestionably rolls out the deluxe treatment for each and every patient.
First impressions make it evident that Dr. Chavan and his practice respect not only your time but also the family you’re raising at home.
After you are blinded by the immaculate new construction, you are met by an amazing team of professionals. They believe in their procedures and are willing and able to educate you from personal photos and regimens to on-the-spot (no pun intended!) suggestions based on your concerns and desires. They are also very well-versed in their exclusive skincare line, AlumierMD.
AlumierMD is a true professionally-dispensed medical-grade skincare brand dedicated to the latest advancements, delivering therapeutic outcomes for patients presenting an array of skin conditions and concerns. AlumierMD was hand-selected by Dr. Chavan as the skin care line for the medical spa. It was important to him that it was both medical grade and free from over 1,300 substances banned by the E.U., F.D.A and Health Canada (the USA only bans 11 chemicals).
The Summit Med Spa team stressed the importance of doing your research on the skincare you are using in both your doctors office and at home.
If you’re not ready to take a deep dive into skincare, keep things simple. The aestheticians shared their top 3 skincare maintenance suggestions to work into your every day:
- Vitamin C every morning. Retinol at night.
- SPF every day. (Pro tip—get a moisturizer that includes SPF and save yourself a step!)
I was so impressed with the facilities and staff that I booked my consult during their opening week.
If you’re like me and in need of comprehensive dermatology and skincare, call Dr. Chavan’s office today to schedule your appointment – 850-416-1345
