We’re born with plenty of elastin and collagen, which show in the thick, soft skin of babies. A face that is clear, smooth, and shiny through great skin care reflects light and is much more appealing than a face that is wrinkled and dull. Great care for the face and the hands, our daily ambassadors, should also go to the neck. The rest of the body, too, needs adequate attention.
The Problem: Lifecycle of Skin
From birth to death, skin undergoes many changes and can show various problems and results. Elastin and collagen degrade over time. That process causes a loss of elasticity, support, and volume; this in turn leads to sagging, thinning, and wrinkling, especially in the face, the neck, and the hands. Also along the way, skin blemishes, discolorations, and other changes in texture and tone should be corrected. Non-surgical or non-laser options may be preferred.
Assessment & Custom-Tailored Skin Care Treatments
- Skin Care Analysis
As your Newport Beach Skin Care Specialist, my care for you begins during our consultation with a personal and full analysis of your skin and its problems. From there we will pinpoint which of our procedures and/or products will furnish the most-effective and aesthetically-pleasing solutions for you.
- Non-Laser Individualized Skin Care Treatments
Beyond surgical treatment, laser resurfacing, and fillers, which are addressed on other pages, we have other options. Depending on your skin condition and/or expectations with treatment, we can use chemical peels, facials, microdermabrasion, or top-of-the-line custom-tailored skin products to treat and improve the impression of:
- stretch marks, under-eye circles, acne or surgical scars, enlarged pores and facial lines
- sun-damaged, excessively-oily, or unevenly-textured skin; lax skin of the face and neck
- various types of skin blemishes, such as age spots (or sun spots), red/yellowish/white spots or bumps (milia), freckles, melasma, rosacea, and small facial veins
- Certain creams can lighten dark pigmentations and discolorations to restore skin tone and clarity while also making skin look younger and brighter.
Our gentle but highly effective products are safe and tested extensively to minimize your chances of acquiring rashes, allergic reactions, or other untoward reactions. An equally soothing fragrance is a bonus. In addition, we have access to compounding pharmacies that are certified by the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB) to custom-tailor creams, sunblocks, and other regimens for our patients. Obtaining a personalized solution of prescribed medical-grade products for your skin from the outset can save a lot of time and money wasted on less-efficient products. Now you can protect your skin and minimize aging every day, even at the beach!
