WHY YOU SHOULD LOVE YOUR FACE:

  • No matter what, you should!
  • Air-brushed faces bombarding us from the media are not realistic.
  • Up to 80% of us are dissatisfied with our image in the mirror. 
  • CHANGING THIS ATTITUDE STARTS WITH YOU. 
     

DR. FRANKS LOVES HER FACE...

See the confidence and joy in this childhood photo-booth picture?  This five year old clearly knows what she likes about herself--and she hasn’t begun to criticize the beautiful features that make her face uniquely hers.  

That five year old girl (me, if you haven’t already guessed) has no idea that her eyelids are heavy and her forehead is quite big. And what’s with those bunny lines at the top of her nose?  

But in another 5 years, she will begin to scrutinize these features, and begin to hear an inner voice that will threaten her strong self esteem. If only we adults could preserve that childhood photo-booth spirit.  But how?    

I now spend my days looking at faces and listening to those inner voices.  But I use my photo-booth lens, appreciating all the positives. And that’s what you should do too.  I challenge you to spend a few minutes each day appreciating your face for its unique anatomy, beautiful asymmetry, and slightly crooked smile.  

Creams, make-up, dermal fillers and other injectables: these aren’t tools to hide or correct “defects"--they are meant to provide support, enhance skin texture, and empower our inner five year old!  

Today’s science and technologies, coupled with an understanding of the age-related changes of facial structure and function, allow Dermatologists to safely address these issues.  Here, at Gramercy Park Dermatology, I challenge you to Love Your Face

OUR STAFF LOVE THEIR FACE’S...

ROBYN SEGRETI

I love my face!! I love the dimples in my chin, the bump of my nose, the scars on my nose, the way my eyes squint into tiny slits when I smile and my full cheeks.  All of these unique features are ME!  They are inherited from my parents, grandparents and their parents before; they are scars and memories of being a little sister.  Most of all, I love my face because my features have been passed on to my own daughter...and I ADORE her face!!

MARIA VALENTINE
I ADORE my face!!! I love my big full lips and heavy lids which  I inherited from my Mom and my nose from my Dad.  I love my smile and my teeth.  I am a very confident woman and I am happy to pass all  these beautiful qualities on to my children.  It is important for them to love themselves for who they are.  I was blessed; when I was little, my Mom always said “Maria, you are bella (beautiful)”!

NICOLE PAEPKE
I love my face!  I love my dimples and my full lips.  I love looking at my children and seeing myself in them.  I am so happy they both inherited my dimples!  My hope is that I show them to LOVE their dimples as much as I do.    


KRISTIN D'ANGELO
I love my changing face!!  As I get older I notice my features becoming  more mature, more structured, and I like what I see!  I love that I share these features with my sister – and how we are recognized by the “D’Angelo nose.”  I love that my eyes change color day by day and how my smile can express more emotion than words.
