What is visible health and wellness?
Visible health is the physical presentation of your outer body.
It is the overall appearance of your hair, skin, nails, eyes, and oral cavity and any associated diseases, impairments, or symptoms.
It is influenced by your physical, mental, and social health.
In addition to physical presentation, visible health can be quantified through metrics such as:
Body mass index (BMI)
Body fat percentage
Certain blood tests (e.g. hemoglobin A1C, hemoglobin, iron stores, thyroid function tests)
Average sleep duration
The biggest factors impacting visible health are diet, exercise, smoking, alcohol consumption, sleep, tanning, hygiene, and disease. Therefore, lifestyle choices play a major role in our visible presentation, aging, and disease risk and prevention. The choices we have made and will make determine our visible wellness.
Trust a dermatology expert with exceptional training and experience to help you achieve visible wellness.

Visible wellness focuses on disease prevention and minimizing signs of aging so that you can look and feel your best throughout your life.
