Skin Care! What to spend your money on

June 21, 2013

Dr. Jane recommends having a good Sunscreen, Antioxidant, and Retinol in your skin care routine, combined with treatments, to give you the best preventitive and anti-aging benefits out there.  Skin care is one of the most important tools you can use 

 

STEP 1: Use one product from each category:Sunscreen, Antioxidant, and Retinoid.

 

Sunscreens

Most important topical in your daily topical care to combat aging and protect your skin against skin cancer.

Comprehensive UVA and UVB is essential to good skin health and maintaining a youthful appearance.

We carry top line sunscreens such as Solar Total Block, Revision, and MD Solar.

 

Antioxidants
Vitamin C: Fights free radicals and stimulates collagen growth.

 

Revision Vitamin C Lotion

 

Retinols
Retinols: Vitamin A family that helps fights acne and promotes a clearer complexion. Plumps skin and helps to reduce fine lines and improve the texture of your skin.

Retinols are available by prescription or, for milder applications, from our office stock of VI Derm Ultra A.

 

STEP 2: Controlled exfoliation.
Exfoliation can be done mechanically (with microdermabrasion at our office or Clarisonic Face Brush at home), or chemically (with Glycolic Acids both in office and at home). Call to schedule an appointment to set up a skin care plan that is just right for you. Everyone should take advantage of scientific developments in medical grade skin care.

 

Chemical Exfoliation
Chemical exfoliation with Glycolic Acids: Chemically exfoliates dead skin cells and stimulates new cells to grow. Use a skin care line at home like Glycolic Based VIVITE skin care system (Cleanser, moisturizer, eye cream, serum). Come in for Glycolic Acid in-Office Peels.

 

Mechanical Exfoliation
Microdermabrasion in Office: Fine inert crystals are blasted at the skin and vacuumed back. The result is smoother looking skin with fewer fine lines, clearance of dry surface skin and a more even skin tone. A series of treatments are required to provide the best results.The Clarisonic FACE BRUSH may be used AT HOME on a daily basis to clear dead surface skin cells and clear pores. Similar to your ultrasonic toothbrush, but for your skin!
