Meet the newest member of the Azalea team: Derrick Easom Ho! Derrick is a FNP-C (Family Nurse Practitioner-Certified), and she joined Azalea in October of 2022. Derrick is very passionate about her patients and helping them to achieve the results they’re looking for.
“I just love making people feel the best about themselves,” said Derrick.
Derrick graduated with her nursing degree from Georgia Southwestern State University in 2015, and she later returned to GSW to get her Master of Science in Nursing and nurse practitioner degree, graduating again in 2018.
“I have focused my career in plastic and reconstructive surgery offices with an emphasis on enhancing and rejuvenating the face and body with injectables, procedures, and skin care,” said Derrick.
One of Derrick’s favorite procedures is injectables because, as she says, of the immediate satisfaction her patients receive. “There’s typically no downtime and while some injectable treatments take a few weeks for the full effect to be seen, most offer some immediate gratification, so people walk out happy.”
When it comes to advice about skincare, Derrick has some simple and inexpensive tips to pass on: sun protection, Vitamin C, and consistency when it comes to using skincare products.
“Actually using the skincare products you buy consistently is an important step in proper skincare; so many people buy products but never consistently use them.” said Derrick. “When it comes to what products are best, vitamin C and sunscreen are my two top product recommendations. So many people don’t realize the sun ages you more than anything else. SPF is definitely your number one skin care product. If someone can’t afford anything else, I tell them to start with sunscreen.”
When Derrick isn’t helping patients achieve their desired results at Azalea, she loves spending time with her family, especially her husband Collin and two-year-old daughter, Sutton. She loves to listen to country music in the car, and one of her favorite holiday traditions is the birthday party for Jesus her family throws every year on Christmas Eve.
“I’m devoted to helping you achieve the results you’re dreaming about, and I can’t wait to take care of you here at Azalea!”
