Be comfortable in your own skin.
When should I start using sunscreen? What is the best cleanser for me? What should I use if I have sensitive skin? These are just a few of the myriad questions that people ask about how to best take care of their skin. And with the hundreds (or more like, thousands) of skin care products and systems out there, it’s no wonder that people are overwhelmed and confused about skin care. And when you add skin care problems such as acne and rosacea to the mix, the picture gets even more complicated. And that’s where your board-certified dermatologist comes in!
Our skin is the organ that envelopes us, the part of us that touches the world daily and is visible to others. It protects us, keeps us hydrated, and can tell the details about our health, habits, and age. And how comfortable we feel in it can depend largely on how well we care for it.
Lucky for us, skin comes in a variety of types, with diverse qualities. We may find our individuality in an array of freckles, a particular beauty mark, or in the shade of our skin. But no matter what type of skin we have, we always want it to glow and reflect a high standard of self-regard. The endless stream of products, treatments, and latest procedures can often confuse, rather than clarify. Instead of giving us answers, we may be left with more questions, wondering what skin care options are the best. Understanding our own skin is the first step to realizing its potential to help us look and feel great. And, even luckier for us, a dermatologist, qualified skin specialist, can offer expert insight and help us navigate the complexity of skin care needs—especially when problems arise.
When you visit Dr. Kim Nichols, a Connecticut board-certified cosmetic dermatologist, she will examine your skin and discuss your personal aesthetic goals. Perhaps you have a chronic skin condition, such as rosacea or acne that needs consistent management. Or maybe you would like to improve those fine lines and other visible signs of aging, or a have skin discoloration or hyperpigmentation that you would like to erase. You may have multiple conditions that you are keen to tackle, but do not know where to start. Whatever the issue, Dr. Nichols can unpack your skin problem and determine an appropriate treatment, which may include:
- Chemical peels to treat hyperpigmentation, active acne and acne scars
- Laser treatments to brighten the skin, tighten the pores, and give the skin a radiant finish
- Non-surgical treatments to fill and smooth facial wrinkles and furrows

She understands that skin type, age, and lifestyle all affect the appearance of the skin—and that not all treatments are effective for all individuals.
