At Lewisville Laser & Aesthetics in Lewisville, clients are so much more than just another face or set of eyebrows, or skin that’s not living its best life! What’s going on underneath – behind those eyes – is what this incredible team’s mission is all about. “At Lewisville Laser & Aesthetics, we really do believe in a ‘whole person’ kind of aesthetics,” says practice owner Dr. Leigh Summer. Their recognizable slogan – Well Beyond Beauty – speaks to self-confidence from within – the ultimate goal and a large part of their patient philosophy. Since opening the business in 2008, Dr. Leigh Summer and her staff have been encouraging clients to embrace their belief that looking and feeling healthy and beautiful is about more than just products and services. Dr. Summer has always wanted every patient crossing their threshold to feel welcome and feel heard, and to receive excellent physician-directed, highly customized aesthetic care. It’s a hefty goal, but one every staff member takes very seriously!
“When you’re addressing issues related to physical appearance, you’re making yourself very vulnerable,” says Dr. Summer. “We want to be that welcoming place where we’re building relationships with our patients, and they trust our guidance completely. You need to be able to trust a provider not to simply sell you something, but to be invested in your overall well-being.” Their goal is to be encouraging but never pushy.
For years, Lewisville Laser & Aesthetics has offered a wide spectrum of services including laser hair removal, feminine rejuvenation, brows and lashes, skincare, vein treatment, and sun damage repair, and their injectors have a combined experience of over 30 years!
What to Expect & What’s in Season
Now that it’s full-on winter, you may be wondering where to start with a new aesthetics regime. There’s no better time to embark on your laser hair removal adventure! When you introduce laser energy into the skin, it is vital to stay out of the sun, so the experts recommend starting during the winter months. Now is also the perfect time for CO2 laser skin resurfacing because of the shorter days and less sun exposure. Looking for a treatment that gets results any time of year? You can’t go wrong with an expert injector and Botox or Dysport to address those frown lines or crow’s feet, as well as fillers like Restylane or Juvederm to restore youthful facial volume.
Your individual path begins with an outline at your initial consultation. “A new patient consultation is like an extended introduction,” says Kristin Carson, Dr. Summer’s assistant and office manager. “We want to get to know you in a welcoming, low-pressure setting. That’s why our aesthetic consultations are always half hour sessions, and they are always free!”
Listening closely at the first meeting with a potential patient is extremely important, so the Lewisville aestheticians can determine the main issue on that patient’s mind – what literally brought them to the point of making that initial phone call. Learning all the details of their general health, as well as their hopes for both short- and long-term results, couldn’t be more important. “We take a set of photos which serve as a sort of springboard to start the conversation on treatment plans,” says Dr. Summer. “For example, if a prospective patient sees a photo of themselves and immediately says they look angry – even when they are not angry at all – we know those expression lines between the eyebrows can be a perfect starting point.” It’s always the patient’s concerns that ultimately drive their treatment plan, based on a real collaboration with the team of injectors and aestheticians.
Keeping Skin on Track
To enhance your treatments and long-term results, Lewisville Laser & Aesthetics also offers a variety of products to purchase right in the office, but it’s not just about marketing – these are tried-and-true favorites the staff absolutely loves and believes in! “We particularly love the physician-grade skincare products from SkinMedica, the amazing mineral sunscreen products from Colorescience, and the luscious organic facial oils from Prakesh, to name a few,” says lead aesthetician Sydney Morrison. The staff prides itself on offering effective skincare products in a wide variety of price points as well. Patients are always welcome to come to the office and shop, particularly if they need a little extra staff guidance on what’s best for their skin – and their budget!
Being able to trust the Lewisville Laser providers one hundred percent is a huge part of a patient’s treatment and success. To that end, Dr. Summer is excited to introduce a new team member, Katie Warren, BSN, RN, who has been a practicing nurse for 12 years, and has worked in aesthetics for the last eight years. She joins the Lewisville team as an injector for Botox and Dysport, facial fillers, and Kybella, but will also do laser hair removal and state-of-the-art tattoo removal using PicoWay laser therapy. And it’s not just the staff that’s growing! In 2020, an exciting expansion at the practice added more treatment rooms and improved areas for relaxation.
