With all this talk about lasers and all their benefits, I want to remind you of the importance of good skin care. If you are considering laser treatments, you really need to consider upgrading you daily routine. You are now in correction mode, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, redness from rocesea or broken blood vessels. If you’re looking for “new” skin then you must treat with medical grade skin care. No longer are those over the counter cleansers and moisturizers benefiting you the way they did when you were in your twenties. Let’s bring on good changes by supporting the skin’s underlying tissue with growth factors, turning over aging skin with retinols, increasing the effectiveness of your moisturizers with HA’s. There are so many amazing scientifically founded products that actually treat the skin and make it healthier than before. Count me in! I love it when my clients are shocked by my age. We all know that we feel younger than we look. Why not look younger than you feel. Most over the counter products have lots of water and fillers that make your skin feel good when putting it on but have little benefit to keeping it that way all day. Invest in your skin when you invest in lasers, you will love what it can do for you. My absolute favorite products, TNS Essential Serum and HA5 made by SkinMedica, throw in a little Stone Crop Moisturizer from Eminence and you won’t be disappointed.
