Introducing Lumiquin!

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

lumiquinWhen it comes to lotions and potions, it seems like the face and the neck get all the attention.  What about the hands??!!   The hands can be a very telling sign of age, so it would only seem logical to have a product specific to the hands.  Introducing Lumiquin!!  Lumiquin is rich in Quinic Acid Esters which are powerful antioxidants that inhibit stress-related signs of aging.  It also contains several other natural ingredients, like a pure form of licorice extract,  that aid in reducing the appearance of dark spots.  Benefits of Lumiquin also include:

* A volumizing and filling effect to minimize the appearance of veins 

*Supports skin’s natural barrier against environmental stressors

*Enhances skin’s moisture level so hands look softer and smoother 

Although it’s effective on it’s own, pair Lumiquin with QS Alexandrite laser treatment for a dramatic result!

Skincare Must-haves

Friday, October 8th, 2010

skincare for blog1A question we hear almost daily from patients is, “What should I be using on my skin?”  Your skincare routine doesn’t need to have a million different steps, but there are three products (4, if you include a good face wash) that we recommend to almost everyone over the age of 25.  To acheive healthy, youthful looking skin it’s important to protect your face from the elements and promote skin cell turnover.  When cleansing your face, try to find a cleanser that is soap free.  After cleansing your face in the morning, apply a Vitamin C product, like SkinMedica Vitamin C Complex.  Vitamin C protects your skin from free radicals.  It also improves the appearance of skin tone and texture.  While you can buy a Vitamin C product in your local drug store, we recommend purchasing pharmaceutical grade products that offer a higher concentration of the active ingredient.  The next very important step is sunscreen.  Sunscreen is essential in fighting the signs of aging!  Everyone should wear at least an SPF 30 sunscreen DAILY, and reapply every 1-2 hours when outdoors.  Remember to apply sunscreen to your neck, chest and back of your hands, as well as your face.  Last essential product to have in your medicine cabinet… Retinol.  Retinol is less abrasive than its prescription counterpart Tretinoin, which enables you to use it on a nightly basis.  Retinol (we recommend Retinol Complex by SkinMedica) is a keratolytic, which means it helps slough off dead skin cells revealing the healthy skin underneath.  It’s a great anti-aging product and very well tolerated.  This skincare regimen is simple, affordable and will keep your skin in great shape
