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

Rejuvenate with Radiesse!

Before and after treatment with Radiesse to the cheeks

As we age, we tend to notice flattening on our cheeks and hollowing under the eyes.  For some, surgery is the answer.  But many of us don’t want to go under the knife.  So what is the alternative?  Radiesse is a dermal filler that can be used to treat areas like the cheeks and nasal grooves.  Radiesse is similar to more familiar fillers, like Restylane and Juvederm, but it is thicker and lasts on average 9 months to one year.  Pain is minimal, as Radiesse is mixed with lidocaine.  See results instantly, with minimal downtime!
