Skin Care Treatments Require Preparation

Published on January 21, 2014

A common question often asked in our skin care department is “What can I do to ensure the best possible results from my skin care treatment?” The answer lies in the preparation. Preparing the skin will always help to ensure a better outcome according to Dr. Feng and her staff of 6 highly skilled Skin Care Specialists.

Here are the required steps for skin preparation prior to any treatment:

1. Cleanse thoroughly – Use a high quality skin care cleanser that is suitable to your skin type and condition. It is essential to eliminate excess oil, dirt, make-up particles and any other debris accumulated. This prevents blemishes and blocked pores and allows the skin to breathe.

2. Exfoliate dead skin cells – Help the skin to eliminate layers of dead skin cells.

3. Control pigmentation – Suppress melanocytes and help to control the appearance of new brown spots caused by sun damage and uneven skin tones. The best products to use contain hydroquinone, kojic acid and azelaic acid

4. Stimulate collagen – Diminish existing wrinkles and improve the elasticity of the skin. Retin-A is the anti-aging ingredient that strengthens the collagen in the skin. This product requires a prescription as it is important to make sure you are using the appropriate strength for your skin.

Going through these steps will help to ensure optimal results from any skin care treatment. We can provide you with everything necessary to complete the 4 step process. With over 420 skin care products, we have something for every skin type and skin condition.

Once you have followed this regimen, you are ready for one of the next more advanced steps to great skin:

South Beach Peel – A multi-faceted, corrective treatment with state of the art technology involving Micro Laser Peel and BBL (broad band light therapy). The result of combining these two treatments will leave your skin with a much smoother texture and renewed brilliance. Minimal downtime makes this very comfortable experience one of our most popular treatments.

Q. What is a Micro Laser Peel?
A. An effective rejuvenating laser resurfacing treatment that helps diminish fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots and age spots. Different intensity levels may be performed to enhance results. The intensity level or “micron” is determined by the patients needs and skin type.

Q. What is BBL ?
A. An innovative therapy using the technology of pulsed light. While it’s not a resurfacing treatment, BBL therapy is a corrective treatment for sun damage, age spots, broken blood vessels (telangiectasia), and it gently stimulates collagen production. Skin will have a smoother, more vibrant and youthful appearance.
