Obagi®

The Obagi System line of skin care products were created to transform your skin at the cellular level, leaving your skin both looking and acting younger and healthier. Popular Obagi products include Obagi-C Rx System, Professional-C Serums, CLENZIderm M.D., and the Obagi Nu-Derm System, which accelerates cellular turnover for skin with moderate to severe sun damage and prepares the skin for an Obagi Blue Peel, which we offer in our office.

SkinMedica®

This entire product line is based on “the science of the skin’s own healing abilities.” Over time, it is natural for skin elasticity to decrease and lines to appear, but these signs of aging can be improved with the restorative ingredients found in these products. With ingredients ranging from vitamins C and E to retinol to NouriCel-MD®, these products have been formulated with the goal of reducing fine lines, fading age spots and discoloration, and improving skin texture and elasticity.

ColoreScience®
Mineral Cosmetics

This line is completely free of the dyes, talcs, fillers, mineral oil, perfumes and other ingredients often found in makeup products. With vibrant color that lasts, the company offers makeup for the face, eyes and lips, in addition to sun protection.

LATISSE

If you are not happy with your lashes, use LATISSE® today & look forward to growing longer, fuller, and darker lashes!

Latisse is the first and only FDA- approved growth treatment for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes, known as eyelash hypotrichosis. Latisse doesn’t create an illusion of growth. It is clinically proven to create real lash growth; you will see and feel a difference. Have you noticed a change in your lashes over the years? A study performed by Allergan-the maker of Latisse- suggested that as women age, their eyelashes often become inadequate. At 16 weeks in the study, women who were 35 or older showed that Latisse MORE than doubled their lash fullness. By restoring youthful lash thickness, fullness, and darkness, Latisse also helps fully rejuvenate the eye area when used in conjunction with other procedures & treatments such as Facelift, Mini-Facelift, Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty), Eyebrow Lift, Chemical Peels, Facial Laser Treatments and other rejuvenating procedures. Apply the topical treatment once-nightly at the base of your upper eyelashes and begin to see results in just four weeks!

Clarisonic

Sonic cleansing is the essential first step in a healthy skincare ritual. Gently gliding across skin while cleansing thoroughly, the sonic micro-massage loosens and removes dirt, oil, and makeup from pores. Trusted by dermatologists and aestheticians, the sonic action clarifies and revitalizes the skin without harsh chemicals. Let Clarisonic Skin Cleansing Systems be your first step towards healthier looking, more beautiful skin.

An Overview of Good Skin Care

Based on reviewing the plastic surgery literature, several products on the market can be identified that will help your skin biologically. Some of these are prescription strength and some can be purchased over the counter. A good skin care program includes a skin evaluation and products tailored to your specific needs. You should plan to be on a program for the rest of your life since the aging process never stops, although the type of product needed may change over time. The basis for a good skin care program includes four products – an exfoliant, a bleaching cream, an antioxidant, and a retinoid.

Exfoliant: The exfoliant may be alpha-hydroxy acid, glycolic acid, or salicylic acid. This class of product helps remove the dead skin cells on the top of the skin. This leads to a smoother skin and more even makeup application. Typically this product is best used in the morning and is non-prescription.

Bleaching Cream: The bleaching cream is prescription strength hydroquinone. This is used twice a day to fade pigmented areas of the skin due to sun damage or pregnancy. It evens out the skin tone to provide a clearer complexion.

Antioxidant: An antioxidant like topical Vitamin C is non-prescription. It repairs damage from the environment, is a skin brightener, exfoliant, and helps build up collagen in the skin. This is used once a day in the morning. Vitamin C also calms the irritation some people experience when starting Retin-A.

Retinoids: Retinols like Retin-A and Renova are prescription products used at bedtime. They act three ways. As our skin ages, it gets thinner. Retinols thicken the collagen in the dermal layer which decreases fine wrinkles. As we age our skin becomes sallow. These products give a pinker complexion which is more youthful. Finally, it acts as an exfoliant to help the skin become smoother.

Once you start on a professional skin care plan, you should see changes in the skin after 6 to 12 weeks. At first, your skin may feel dry or sensitive, but with the supervision of your aesthetician, this will pass and you should begin seeing some nice changes in the skin.

There are other products such as cleansers, toners, eye creams, and sunscreens that you should add; however, the four classes of products listed above are the core of a good skin care program. We can help you get started rejuvenating your appearance – call 614-779-0990 for an appointment or request a consultation online. We look forward to helping you with your skin care needs.
