In today’s image-conscious society, we are all seeking youthful beauty and radiantly glowing skin. At the Center for Dermatology Cosmetic and Laser Surgery, our aestheticians, RNs, PAs, and board-certified dermatologists provide a number of excellent services to help you accomplish that goal. However, there is one more, very important, member, of your skincare team, and that person is you. Developing and practicing an individualized skincare regimen is a key element in maintaining soft, beautiful, healthy, youthful skin for life.
Retail products are often labeled according to the skin type for which they are most appropriate. However, they use a simplified classification system that describes skin in general terms such as dry, oily, or sensitive. Each of these categories encompasses a broad spectrum of subtypes. Furthermore, the degree of sensitivity and hydration are only two of many factors that determine the skin’s needs.
In reality, no two people have identical skin or needs. Your aesthetician will evaluate a number of skin characteristics including:
- Pore size
- Dark spots
- Sun damage
- Skin conditions
Proper skincare, incorporating therapeutic products and eliminating irritating ones can bring about a marked improvement in the health and appearance of skin. If you have specific skin problems or wish to reduce the signs of aging, we will discuss potential corrective procedures and schedule treatments if needed.
Your Unique Skin Care Plan
A good daily skincare regimen generally includes cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing, and sun protection. Toner, masques, serums, and other products may be incorporated according to your needs, habits, and preferences. You will learn what formulas and techniques are best for your skin, how often they should be used, and what to look for on product labels.
Future visits may be scheduled at regular intervals, or as needed. The frequency depends on your needs. Patients with active skin conditions may need regular therapeutic treatment, and certain cosmetic enhancements require occasional touch ups. Some patients only visit occasionally for skin rejuvenation treatments.
