Q+A with McKenzie Smartt

What is your favorite part of your job?: My favorite thing to treat right now is acne. I struggled with acne myself and really enjoy helping others achieve clear skin! There is nothing more rewarding than helping others, and fortunately in dermatology it’s usually pretty easy to “see” the difference you are making. 

What’s your no. 1 skincare tip?: I love topical Vitamin C! Its antioxidant properties help defend our skin from everyday stressors (free radicals), and it also helps brighten and firm. It’s a no brainer for me! Also, sunscreen! 

Do you have a favorite product?: My current favorite product is our PCA Skin Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum. It’s excellent for hydration during these winter months and reduces fine lines and wrinkles!  

What about your favorite service?: As far as a favorite service, I can’t wait for my first Lumecca treatment. Lumecca is our IPL laser that treats browns and reds and improves overall skin complexion. If you are looking for a laser treatment to even out your skin and bring back that youthful glow, Lumecca is your go-to! 

Fun facts: McKenzie’s favorite holiday is Christmas, and she loves slow mornings in pjs with a good cup of coffee!
