Had the opportunity to meet Dr. Bertha Baum a very respected Dermatologist from Cali, Colombia at the Neutrogena Suite at the We all Grow Summit. I had just gotten my third dermapen treatment done 4 days prior to the event and my skin was so dry. Dr. Baum examined my skin and recommended I use NeutrogenaHydro Boost to give moisture to my skin as well as Rapid Tone Repair Moisturizer. The next morning my skin felt hydrated allowing my makeup to stay in place.Recently I had the opportunity to ask Dr. Bertha Baum few questions about Skin and Beauty.What would you like to see be developed in the realm of skin care next? I would like to see nanotechnology and new vehicles in order to have better absorption of creams and products. Also, I’m in the lookout for the recent studies on topical botox instead of the injected type that we have available today.What beauty and skin care products can’t you live without? I cannot live without my retinol at night and my hyaluronic acid. Obviously the sunscreen is must, and today most of the good ones come with the antioxidants, which makes it even better.
Do you see a lot of patients who feel that aging has affected their careers?
Yes, a lot of people come to me before applying for a new job so that I can make them look younger. I love what I do and enjoy making people feel better about themselves. However, it makes me sad that people are judged by how they look and not by who they are and what they can offer.
How did you choose to focus on dermatology? First, I was motivated to do medicine because I truly enjoy helping others, and then I decided to get into Dermatology because I love aesthetics and cosmetics, and I truly enjoy having a practice of patient care and also lots of procedures. Every day I wake up excited to go to work because there is always something new, it never gets boring, and I find new challenges daily. Also, in medicine and dermatology, you never stop learning.
Thank you to Dr.Bertha Baum for your insight and the valuable beauty tip of anti-aging prevention for us to remember use retinol at night and use of sunscreen during the day.
