Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions About DermPhilosophy
What is healthy aging and prevention?

Prevention is the key to a healthy and happy life in any area of medicine. Why should your skin be any different? We will all experience skin quality changes due to effects of the sun as well changes caused by the passing of time. Understanding your skin can be of great help when planning to enhance your appearance; especially when considering the use of anti-aging products.

The skin is the largest human organ and has many important functions. It not only gives us our appearance and shape; it protects the body from the environment. Aging is something that we cannot control or stop---so why not do it gracefully? At DermPhilosophy we specialize in both prevention and treatments of the aging process.

What is a DermAssessment?

A DermAssessment is a free, no obligation, skin consultation with our skin care expert Danielle Bartelt, RN. During the assessment, Danielle will answer all of your questions about your skin and offer helpful tips to treat your concerns. She will also provide you with a skin care regimen if you are looking to improve the health and appearance of your skin. DermPhilosophy is focused on a simple, result-driven, and scientific approach offering only services and products that will leave patients feeling confident and satisfied. We enhance rather than create.

What is Aesthetic Services Express?

DermPhilosophy offers Aesthetic Services Express to our patients as we know everyone has a busy schedule and does not always have time to make an appointment. Patients that are signed up for Aesthetic Services Express will receive a text message whenever an appointment becomes available. The patient will just need to respond that they will take the appointment. Many times these appointments are last minute due to a cancellation. Therefore, there is usually a discount involved for patients that fill these spots. Contact Us to sign up!

Why do you recommend sunscreen so persistently?

Smoking and drinking, excessive sun exposure and stress can all speed-up the biological clock. However, of all these aging factors SUN DAMAGE poses the greatest threat. In fact, UVR is thought to be responsible for the major part of skin aging. Without sun damage, we would probably not develop wrinkles until we were in our 80’s. The immediate danger of too much sun is sunburn. With repeated sun damage, the skin starts to look dry, wrinkled, discolored, and leathery. Although the skin appears to be thicker, it actually has been weakened and, as a result, bruises more easily. The sun’s most serious threat is, of course, skin cancer, which is now the most common of all cancers. Doctors believe that most skin cancers can be avoided by preventing sun damage. Aesthetic dermatology cannot turn back the passage of time. However, it can restore skin hydrobalance and improve the skin structure and elasticity, as well as fill out wrinkles and folds and restore facial volume.

What is DermPhilsophy's cancellation policy?

DermPhilosophy respectfully requests a 24-hour notice for appointment cancellations. If you need to cancel your appointment, please call the clinic to let us know you will be unable to make your appointment. For those who disregard this policy, a credit card number will be required to schedule future appointments. If an appointment is again canceled or the patient fails to show for the service with less than a 24-hour notice, a fifty-dollar fee will be applied to the credit card.

I don't want any services done but I would love to buy product... is that an option?

Of course! You can schedule a free DermAssessment to have our expert in skin care Danielle Bartelt, RN, give you advice on what products would be best for you. This is a no obligation appointment. You can also stop in during business hours to purchase any of our products! Buy our products online at the DermPhilosophy online store.

What types of payment do you accept?

We accept cash and most major credit cards. We also offer financing through care credit.

How do I choose the right treatments or know if I am a good candidate for you services?

In today’s marketing world of “thrilling” and “fabulous” procedures, the aesthetic industry is moving away from the standard medical approach of prevention and treatment for the patient, and instead moving toward a confusing chaos of a la carte services. At DermPhilosophy, we focus on the way YOUR skin looks and feels which is why we customize a treatment and prevention plan for each patient to achieve their skincare goals. Please CONTACT US to schedule your free, no obligation, DermAssessment today!

Do men have aesthetic services performed?

Of course! Men age also and the cosmetic tools to help arrest that process are more acceptable today than ever before, and are no longer reserved for women alone. Today’s men are interested in ever growing numbers on using treatments to help their appearance. Schedule your free DermAssessment today to have all of your skin and aging concerns addressed by our expert, Danielle Bartelt, RN.
