Dr. Saya Obayan

In over 13 years of practicing, I’ve seen many patients with long lasting skin conditions like acne, eczema, psoriasis, as well as wrinkles and signs of aging, who desire to improve their skin condition on the outside, but the underlying causes go untreated, causing recurrence after treatment or lack of improvement. My goal is to treat the entire person and consider lifestyle aspects and other factors in play, like gut health and stress, and nutrient deficiencies that could prevent you from fully healing.

Whether you’re considering a traditional medical visit, an integrative visit diving into the causes and prevention of your skin condition, or a cosmetic consultation to discover the best procedures to treat your skin, we empower you to make the best choice for your skin’s health. We are there with you every step of the way to guide and educate you in making these important decisions.

Contact us at Nature of Skin to experience our unique approach to integrative skin health and wellness and let us walk with you and guide you on the path to clear skin and a healthier lifestyle.

Thank you for trusting us with your skin’s health.
