Favorite Cosmetic Procedure(s):  
Calming VBeam Laser Treatment
“I’ve had several different treatments at Germain Dermatology and one of my favorites is the Calming Vbeam laser. I have redness from rosacea and from acne. After 3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart, I have my redness under control. When I start to feel flushed from spicy food, embarrassment, heat or any of my other triggers, my face no longer gets bright red! My skin looks so much better without the redness.” 

*Alexis is also a fan of Clear & Brilliant, Botox and Silk peels. 

Favorite Facial Make-Up:
Jane Iredale, Radiant Pressed Powder 
Best advice from Dr. Germain:
“You never want to look different, you just want to look like a better version of yourself.” 

“This is a journey, not a race…Do what treatments you can when you can. Every bit helps!”
 And we have to mention-
“Stay out of the sun and Get your windows tinted; UVA rays goes through glass!” 

Alexis’ Best Advice:
“Preventative maintenance is key; always wear sunscreen! The less you damage your skin, the less you’ll have to fix!” 
and
“Don’t sleep with your make up on & don’t wash your face with bar soap. Using quality products DOES make a difference!  Always Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate.”

Alexis sends you off with these last words of wisdom,  “Botox DOES work! Very effective!  Save your tax refunds, ask for gift cards for birthdays/holidays, even start a beauty fund! Everyone deserves to feel good about themselves. When people feel good, they look good. “
