Mary Ann“If this is your priority, it is worth it. Contrary to what some people think, we have many options for every budget…and because it works, it’s money well spent.”

Caring for your skin can keep you looking good at any age. It influences how quickly you experience the telltale signs of aging and may postpone the need for surgical intervention. If you are opting for surgical facial rejuvenation treatments, proper skincare before and after the procedure can optimize your overall results. The first step is to understand all the options available and commit to a program that will work for you. Maryann has been our in-house aesthetician since 2006. “My goal for every patient is to customize an easy and effective plan that will take their skin to the next level, regardless of their starting point. Fillers and facelifts do wonders for overall appearance but don’t address the condition of your skin.”

Maryann considers herself an extension of Dr. Berkowitz’ superior care. “Skincare is my specialty but I always start with a thoughtful analysis that encompasses not only skin but lifestyle. Quick assessments are dangerous and ultimately futile.” A consultation with Maryann will include a conversation about you and your concerns. “Many elements combine to create your specific profile—knowing your age, habits, diet, medications, and products you use help me get a clear picture of how we might work together.”

Maryann’s clients include those who are interested in exploring an ongoing skincare regimen as well as those who have had facial rejuvenation surgery. One distinct advantage Maryann brings patients is her role as a critical consumer. “I don’t recommend anything I have not tried myself. I can help people navigate through the sea of potions and lotions and treatments. We are not selling, we are looking for results. Because our products are of pharmaceutical grade and approved by the FDA, they are allowed to include a higher concentration and quality of ingredients. You can actually address certain conditions and see results. At the department store they are selling you over the counter products in generic fashion. Here, we assess you carefully and prescribe skin care products and routines tailored to you.”

Her certification from California’s Cosmetic College and participating as an active member of SPSSCS—a society of plastic surgery skincare specialists, keeps Maryann at the forefront of what’s available and what other professionals have found to be successful for their patients. “Taking care of your skin is important at any age and any stage. The skin is a reflection of the body’s overall health. Often systemic problems will manifest themselves in/on the skin. I help develop customized skincare programs for patients that makes them look and feel better about their appearance. It’s the part of my job that never gets routine.”

Patients benefit from a wide range of skincare services including Microdermabrasion, chemical peels, Vasershape, and Obagi products. Post surgical patients are treated to healing ultrasound, massage, and cosmetics that camouflage and conceal.

“I might be the first person you see at the practice, or I might be the last, but I hope to join you at some point in your journey to help you look your best.”
