I love this time of the year because it’s the time for new beginnings, fresh starts, and a better you. It’s a time for reflection and intention.
2016 for NicholsMD meant a bigger and brighter location (woo hoo!), a growing staff by bringing on Board-Certified Physician Assistant, Katie French, and adding new advanced treatments such as PRP Micro-Needling – a technique using your own stem cells to dramatically improve signs of aging and hair loss; Kybella– an injectable to rid stubborn fat; and Laser Feminine Rejuvenation – a procedure to non-invasively correct and restore feminine wellness.
Because of this success and your sustained loyalty, NicholsMD has been chosen to be one of only 20 cosmetic medical practices in the nation as a SkinCeuticals Advanced Clinical Spa! To celebrate, we are partnering with the SkinCeuticals team to throw a grand launch party in the office on March 1! The evening will feature exclusive one-night only,half-off pricing of our most popular treatments, like Ultherapy and CO2RE Fractional Laser. The evening will celebrate a New Year, New You by giving away our favorite Skinceuticals products to those that attend, and VIP bags valued at $300!
We look forward to celebrating with you and a friend over hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and an awesome DJ. To RSVP to this celebratory night, click here: www.KimNicholsMD.com/RSVP.

Procedure Spotlight: Hand Rejuvenation
Are your hands giving away your age?
Believe it or not, our hands can start looking “older” as early as our 20s, at a substantially faster rate than our faces. With loss of collagen and subcutaneous fat, the crepey lines and wrinkles, tendons, bones and veins in our hands become more prominent. Since most of us were not applying sunscreen to the backs of our hands everyday for the last 20 years, how can we gracefully turn back the clock?
The answer: NicholsMD’s Hand Rejuvenation, using Radiesse® and the Fraxel Dual Laser.
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that is FDA-approved for volume loss in the hands. It is injected into specific areas of the hand to provide smooth, youthful looking results that last up to one year. And the Fraxel Dual Laser is The Eraser!It takes away the brown spots revealing clear, beautiful hands. This combination of Radiesse and Fraxel is what makes the Hand Rejuvenation treatment by NicholsMD so one-of-a-kind.
Dr. Nichols and Katie French PA-C have been uniquely trained as expert injectors to administer Radiesse® into the hands. Request an appointment today to learn more about this procedure with instant, natural-looking results with little to no downtime.
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that is FDA-approved for volume loss in the hands, that stimulates your body’s own natural collagen.

Sunscreen in the Winter?
Starting in December, we always get this question from our clients – “Do I still have to use sunscreen in the winter?” And the answer is a resounding, YES!!
As we all know, sunscreens prevent signs of premature aging, protect your skin from discoloration, and help to keep your skin healthy and glowing. The reason you need to use sunscreen all year-round is because much of the sun damage that causes skin aging comes from UVA rays, the kind you are exposed to everyday from walking around any time of year. So even in the winter, you should apply sunscreen to your face, neck, chest (V-neck sweaters!), and the backs of your hands,” says Dr. Nichols, who is a Medical Council Member of The Skin Cancer Foundation.
And remember, the type of sunscreen that is appropriate for your skin type may change with the time of year – something lighter or sheer in the summer and one more moisturizing in the winter. NicholsMD offers an array of sunscreen options for different seasons, and for those with acne-prone or sensitive skin. Request an appointment today to have an annual full body skin exam. At your appointment, we will give you personalized sunscreen recommendations for your exact skin type and lifestyle!
