I was so impressed with my visit to Dr. Forston today. She and her assistant, Danielle, spent over an HOUR with me discussing my skin concerns. She did not push any products on me, and does not blindly adhere to any one skin care line, but rather picks and chooses the best products from various lines (as well as ones she has developed) based on science. I brought in all of the products I had at home, and she helped me pick out which ones were most appropriate for my conditions (so that I could use them up before purchasing others) and helped me develop a skin care routine using those and a few others she recommended based on research and science. We also discussed various laser treatments that I could pursue now, or further down the line when I had the finances to do a full course. She was incredibly knowledgeable about my conditions, appropriate treatments, as well as the wide variety of products out there that might be helpful. I don't think I have had such a thorough and attentive experience with any type of doctor, ever. Thanks, Dr. Fortson, I will be back!
I have been going to Dr. Fortson over the last several years for various skin treatments. I was originally seen for an unknown skin rash over my body that was treated and cured over two weeks. At a follow up appointment I asked about different treatments for my adult acne. Dr. Fortson recommended Accutane. Dispite the side affects, I decided to try the treatment anyway. To my surprise, it worked! I no longer have large acne breakouts. I am so thankful she recommended a medication that has improved not only my self esteem but my life as an adult. I continue to visit her office to see Raegan her aesthetician for acne (blackhead removal) and laser treatments. These treatments are quite relaxing, not to mention productive at keeping my face clear and looking radiant. The proffesionalism and compassion I receive during these treatments are genuine and sincere. She has given me pointers on ways to help prevent blackhead breakouts and different treatments to reduce scarring caused by my teenage acne. I would greatly recommend Raegan to anyone hoping to improve the appearance of their skin. She is a great aesthetician and knows her stuff. The treatments I receive are in a quiet calm setting and I always leave the office in a relaxed and refreshed state of mind! I will continue to recommend this office to anyone who asks for a referral to a dermatologist and an awesome aesthetician, they are great! Thank you Fortson Dermatology!!!
I have been going to see Dr Fortsons esthetician for almost a year now. Raegan is the reason I continue to be seen at this office. She's leaves my skin looking fabulous! I look forward to my treatments with her not only because the treatments are amazing but because of her great personality, knowledge of products, skin and different treatments. Raegan makes sure you are apart of your care at this office and is a wonderful addition to that business.
