Kristen M. Jacobs, M.D, a local aesthetic physician with more than 14 years of experience, wants to share her expert knowledge about skin secrets and healthy aging with others.

Dr. Jacobs has written a new book called “Live Life Beautifully (With a Little Help)” and will be holding a book signing onJan. 22 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Seams for the Soul Boutique located at 216 S. Buchanan St., Edwardsville.

Jacobs utilizes a five-step approach to healthy aging. Her new book chronicles her top skin secrets to help people feel their best at any age and offers before and after photos from patients she has treated.

“Learning how to care for your skin the right way is essential no matter what age you are and can make a tremendous difference in your overall health,” said Jacobs. “Learning proper skin care techniques can help you age healthily, prevent skin cancer, and improve your self-confidence. My goal in writing this book was to help make the knowledge and expertise I’ve gained through my years of practice accessible to everyone.”

Jacobs opened Ooh La La Medical Spa as an aesthetic medicine and preventive health practice in Glen Carbon in 2008. As the demand for quality anti-aging procedures grew, so did Jacobs’ line of services, turning Glen Carbon into a destination for patients across the country looking for the ultimate in care. Today, Jacobs and her team offer the latest scientific and technological advancements in injectables, face and body contouring, skin rejuvenation, laser services and nutritional programs.

In 2010, her husband Robert L. Wise, D.C., joined the practice as the director of wellness and nutrition to offer nutritional counseling for a whole-body approach to wellness.
