Print Email

Esteem for oneself is surely a contributing factor for a host of issues; however, many researchers are beginning to question the concept of self-esteem and the importance of it in successful adult identity and relationship formation. Instead, the idea of self-worth is emerging as a more helpful concept for explaining the sense of value in self and relationships that is so often missing in people’s lives.

Confidence, grace, and wisdom are just a few attributes that come with age. Now in my 30s, and more confident, graceful and a bit wiser (than in my 20s), I think about aging and skincare.   

Tanning beds, sunbathing and acne really take their toll on our delicate skin, leaving scars, wrinkles and sun spots. Dr. Srdan Babovic, a plastic surgeon at Olmsted Medical Center, says microneedling helps patients boost confidence and is backed by science to improve the look of skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines, pigment changes and acne scars. Dr. Babovic and his team perform this treatment using an FDA-approved Dermapen. Dr. Babovic believes that using science and data are important when choosing the right treatments.
