AS CHIC AS it is competent, one of the South’s most beloved new skincare phenoms has arrived in Houston.

Having been launched in Nashville by Maegan Griffin, a nurse practitioner looking for better products and a better treatment experience for herself, upscale Skin Pharm has opened in a sparkly new building on Westheimer. With soaring white walls awash in natural light and warm style, the space reads more boutique hotel or urbane spa than clinic. Treatments include microneedling, filler, Botox and more. The Gold Infusion facial is a wonder; your skin will glow, and, weeks later, people will comment!

Skin Pharm, a cosmetic dermatology practice, also has a line of raved-about products, including its Papaya Enzyme Cleanser, which became a bit of a sensation. Other top-sellers include the Youth Serum, a hyaluronic acid that plumps and firms, and its Clay Time charcoal mask that soothes and smooths.

In Houston, Macy Siddiqi (PA-C), a trained dermatology physician assistant, works with patients. Sweet and thorough, Siddiqi “takes pride in building trust with her patients, genuinely listening to them and taking every concern seriously, and she is so honored to be joining Skin Pharm,” according to the website. Adriana Castaneda (MSN, NP-C) is also on board.

The Houston outpost is just the beginning for Skin Pharm, which “just announced a $15 million investment from Prelude Growth Partners, that will assist the brand in additional clinic expansion and product development.” Skin Pharm currently also has locations in Nashville, Charlotte, Dallas, Atlanta and Franklin, Tenn.
