Why Should You See a Nurse Practitioner for Your Skincare?

We love seeing new patients at Skin Pharm! Perhaps you’ve been following us on Instagram, but you haven’t visited us yet. We are a female-led business, and we love what we do! We personally use the skincare products we sell in our store and undergo the procedures we offer. We would love to meet you and talk about the best skincare plan that works for you.

When you come to Skin Pharm, whether it’s for a skincare consultation or a procedure, you’re making an appointment with a board-certified Nurse Practitioner. If you’re not quite sure why you need to see a Nurse Practitioner for your skincare needs, we’d like to explain why we think it’s important.

Why Skin Pharm is Different

At Skin Pharm, our procedures are medical-grade, which means that we’re board certified to give you stronger and more effective treatments than you would experience with a provider that is not board-certified. For example, with microneedling, our Nurse Practitioners are able to go deeper into your skin. Providers who are not board certified can’t go as deep with the treatment, which means this can be the difference between you receiving a treatment that is 0.2mm or 2.5mm in depth. Trust us, it makes a HUGE difference, as the deeper needle placement encourages more collagen production and better results. Every procedure you’d have at Skin Pharm is performed by a Nurse Practitioner, so you’re getting the most bang for your buck.

Nurse Practitioners are licensed, advanced practice registered nurses who have completed a master’s or doctoral degree program, clinical training, and didactic courses prior to taking the board exam. Nurse practitioners provide both medical and nursing care under their own license, which permits them to diagnose, give orders, prescribe medications, and direct medical care of patients.

A Whole-Body Approach 

Additionally, Nurse Practitioners give you a more holistic approach, powered by science-backed ingredients that you’ll be able to fit into your own busy schedule. We also provide plans that are realistic for your lifestyle and budget, as we take all of those factors into consideration. Overall, we offer you a comprehensive, analytical approach to your skincare needs, and we make it easy so you don’t have to think about it. Also, our patients tell us that they have fun when we visit us! 

Because, at the end of the day, skincare can — and should — be fun. It’s one more way to show yourself love, and invest in yourself.

Skin Pharm Founder: Maegan Griffin

Maegan Griffin
“I love my career because it offers a creative outlet. Every patient is a personal project for me! They sit in my chair and know that I will do everything I can to address their concerns so they leave satisfied, confident and happy.”

 

Maegan Griffin is known for her innovative work in cosmetic dermatology, facial rejuvenation techniques and aesthetic medicine utilizing the latest cutting edge technology.

An early adopter of injectables and skin laser technologies, Maegan’s artful work has secured her reputation as a practitioner who helps her patients create meaningful internal and external changes in their lives while finding a balanced approach to anti-aging and beauty.

“Patients who come to Skin Pharm are overwhelmingly women, and most of them aren’t just coming for the treatments, they’re actually connected to the culture of the whole skin care movement. It’s about building confidence and esteem.”

Maegan completed her Bachelors of Science in Nursing and Belmont University and her Masters of Science in Nursing at Tennessee State University. She is a Family Nurse Practitioner with experience treating patients of all ages, but specializes in aesthetic medicine to address common skin concerns and the aging process.

I became obsessed with protecting my skin in my mid-twenties (think obsessive application of high quality SPF, a collection of sun blocking hats and appreciating the benefits of topical antioxidants). Once I entered my thirties, the fixation on boosting collagen hit! I love topicals with peptides and trust in the magic of retinol. As far as procedures, I’d be devastated if I had to go without my cheek contouring Voluma injections.

Skin Pharm has been recognized by the Nashville Scene as “Best Skin Care Spot” as well as featured in NFocus and Style Blueprint.

“Being a mom to a little girl and specializing in aesthetic medicine means I need to make sure my daughter feels beautiful and does not receive the message that she needs to change how she looks. This is something I constantly remind myself of now that she is a toddler who hears everything I say and sees everything I do. I think this helps me as a practitioner to ensure I focus on patients positive features and enhance their appearance rather than change their face, or worse, leave them looking distorted after my work.”

After practicing in Nashville for several years, I am fortunate to have built a following of fresh-faced women, leading me to found my cosmetic dermatology practice, Skin Pharm. Skin Pharm is a female owned and operated practice specializing in aesthetic medicine including cosmetic injections, advanced skin care, laser therapy and acne treatments. If you haven’t come in to see us yet, come by to see visit our skin care boutique or schedule a consult to meet with one of our board certified Nurse Practitioners.
