(Excerpt) Some of you have noticed that on Instagram Stories that I’ve been chatting about my first couple visits to DLK on Avenue. It all stemmed from something I’ve really wanted to do for quite a while, which was sit down with an expert to talk about skincare – specifically mine!
As a blogger I’m so lucky to be able to go to all kinds of events that celebrate launches of skincare products, but these events tend to focus on a specific product with the presentation focusing on what the product can do, and not to do with if I SHOULD use it based on my own skincare concerns.
I’ve found that my most recent chats with girlfriends at lunches and events tend to pause on skincare. What is everyone doing? Has anyone tried this or have they heard about that? What I’ve to come realize is that everyone has their own specific skincare concerns, so it’s important to have a plan that’s personalized.
Cue my visit to DLK on Avenue! Situated a minutes’ walk from my favorite little Yorkville stop Sorelle, DLK on Avenue sprawls multiple floors and is a bright and cheerful spot. A warm hello was followed with not only the offer of water, but the question of it I would rather it chilled or room temperature. I mean, even my water choice was personalized – I had a good feeling at my first consultation!
DLK on Avenue is a cosmetic dermatology and laser clinic, and although all of the treatments provided are listed on the website, my first visit prior to trying anything was a consultation directly with the Doctor – Dr. Lisa Kellett.
I was to arrive with no makeup on, and I first met with a nurse to discuss my skincare concerns and why I was at the clinic. When Dr. Kellett arrived she sat down right in front of me and stared at my skin! I have never had someone do this before to be honest! Lights on, no makeup, and a doctor was assessing my skin. This was exactly what I was looking for!
