Wipe the Slate Clean: Our Skin Care Philosophy
At Nashville Cosmetic Surgery we believe that good skin is the basic foundation for a healthy and more youthful appearance. The effects of time and circumstances age our skin….whether it is bad genes, sun damage, or the stresses and choices of daily life. Over time, our skin takes a beating. We believe we can bring it back to life.
If you would like to see noticeable improvements in your skin…if you have noticed changes in your skin pigmentation due to sun exposure or hormones…if you have acne, blackheads or hormonal breakouts…Our medical grade skincare treatments and products can help.
Using an individualized approach to skin care, we work with each patient to address unique skin issues and goals, incorporating different treatments and pharmaceutical grade products that over time will affect a noticeable change in your skin. We strongly believe in educating patients so that you understand your skin, how it changes between seasons and the role of each product we recommend for you. Whether you are 20 or 70, our goal is to help you love the skin you are in!
What should you expect during your first visit?
You can expect your first consultation with our licensed medical aesthetician, to last approximately 1 ½ hours. During that time she will evaluate your skin, discuss your concerns and goals and current skin care routine. After all information has been gathered and your skin evaluated, you will experience a facial that has been designed to address your specific skin issues. This process typically includes cleansing, some form of exfoliation which can include a chemical peel and microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, extractions if needed, feeding your skin and application of sunscreen for protection.
Nashville Cosmetic Surgery makes great efforts to ensure your skin care procedures take place in an inviting and relaxing spa-like atmosphere where your skin is the focus. You will leave our office with a better understanding of your skin, a plan designed specifically for you, samples to take home and a follow-up plan to help achieve your skincare goals, all with your individual budget and recovery restrictions considered. The fee for this consultation/facial is $200.00. We recommend that you bring all skin care products you are currently using with you to your consultation.

Meet Karen-Marie Hooper
As an adolescent, beautiful skin was difficult for Karen-Marie Hooper to achieve as she struggled with acne for many years. However, once she learned about skin and particularly her own skin, she successfully controlled her acne. It was then she knew she wanted to help others achieve the best looking and healthiest skin possible. Medical skin care is truly her passion.
As a Nashville native, she moved to Houston, Texas in 2000 and completed the prestigious CIDESCO program. Being a CIDESCO diplomate sets her apart from most aestheticians as there were only 3 schools in the US with the extensive 1800 hour curriculum. With over 10 years’ experience, she has a diverse background in medical skin care which has afforded her many opportunities to go behind the scenes in various reconstructive surgical procedures. She maintains a well-rounded knowledge of the skin due to years of experience working in plastic surgery and dermatology.
Karen-Marie is a true asset to our team as she continues increasing her knowledge in the ever-changing world of medical aesthetics. She has expanded her knowledge with advanced skin care, as well as with lasers and various medical devices. Her most valued compliment is that she spends time with her patients, listening and asking questions in order to execute the best customized, results oriented plan for her patients.
