Get Perfect Skin for Your Dream Day

Posted on March 12, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

Each bride’s skin is different and it is important to work with aesthetic medical professionals who can provide customized solutions for your unique problems. Our team of trained aesthetic professionals can provide a thorough assessment of the condition of your skin. This assessment will be used to determine the correct treatment plan to make sure you look your best on the most important day of your life.

 

Most brides want a fresher appearance with skin that radiates a healthy and youthful glow.  We suggest starting facial rejuvenation treatments soon after your engagement so that you have time to perfect your skincare routine by your wedding day. We have found that experimenting with new products too close to your wedding will put you at risk for adverse reactions such as breakouts, flaky skin, or rashes.  We can help minimize the risk of these reactions by providing customized recommendations of high-quality skin care products. We can also help amplify the effects of your current skin care routine by incorporating powerful in-office treatments. Our skin care specialists can perform a variety of medical grade chemical peels to improve the tone and texture of your skin. Skinmedica’s range of professional grade chemical peels offer brides several options.

 

Those who are looking to brighten their overall complexion can greatly benefit from the lightest exfoliation treatment, the Illuminize Peel. If a bride is looking to improve the appearance of fine lines and acne scars then they would need a series of more robust treatments such as the Rejuvenize Peel. More pronounced skin imperfections can also be treated with laser skin resurfacing.

Improve Your Skin with Laser Skin Resurfacing

Posted on February 20, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

California’s temperate climate and world-renowned beaches make the state a vacationer’s paradise. However, excessive sun exposure can be detrimental to the health of our skin. It may cause sun spots and wrinkles, and it may also raise one’s risk of developing skin cancer.

Sunscreen is one of the best weapons against harmful UVB rays, and we recommend using at least SPF 30 in your daily regimen. SPF 30 is designed to block around 97 percent of UVB radiation, but to be effective it has to be reapplied every two hours. If you already have symptoms of sun damage we can certainly treat them with a variety of medical grade treatments. Laser skin resurfacing is one of the most effective ways of treating certain signs of sun damage such as wrinkles and fine lines. Below, we have outlined several key elements of this cutting-edge treatment.

 

What is laser skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing uses energy-based technology to improve the appearance of various skin imperfections. During the treatment, a clinician will direct hundreds of microbeams deep into the skin to stimulate collagen and promote your body’s natural healing response.

 

What conditions can laser skin resurfacing treat?

Laser skin resurfacing can improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and sun spots. The treatment also works to boost your body’s own collagen.

 

How do I prepare for treatment?


We recommend discontinuing use of Retin A and chemical peels, for at least a week prior to the treatment. Also, patients must minimize their sun exposure for at least two weeks prior to receiving any kind of laser treatment.

 

How often the treatments are done?


In order to achieve optimal results it is best to schedule treatments every 4 to 6 weeks.

3 Skincare Resolutions For 2018

Posted on January 4, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

2018 is finally here, and we are looking for ways to look our best in the New Year. If skincare is one area you hope to improve upon, we can help turn your resolutions into a reality. Below are three beauty resolutions you should consider adding to your list, because they can have a big impact on your complexion and overall skin’s health.

 

  1. Apply Sunscreen Regularly

One of the easiest ways to prevent fine lines and wrinkles is to start incorporating sunscreen into your daily routine. Sunscreen should be applied regularly during daylight hours because the active ingredients lose their efficacy approximately two hours after the application. We recommend trying out SkinMedica’s line of Total Defense and Repair sunscreens because their innovative formulas are also highly effective at rejuvenating the skin.

 

  1. Exfoliate

One of the best ways to achieve a smoother and more refreshed appearance is through regular exfoliation.

For your homecare routine, we recommend SkinMedica’s AHA/BHA Cream because it offers gentle exfoliation with naturally derived alpha-hydroxy acids. More powerful exfoliation methods should be left to the experts who can perform medical grade chemical peels. This effective form of exfoliation can treat sun damage, acne scars, and various signs of aging.

 

  1. Treat and Prevent Premature Aging

The New Year might remind us that we are getting older, but with the right products, treatments, and lifestyle choices, we can dramatically slow down the aging process. If you are interested in achieving a more youthful complexion, there are a number of minimally invasive cosmetic enhancements to try that can rejuvenate and revitalize your skin. For instance, fillers and Botox can diminish the prominence of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox, in particular, is both a restorative and preventative treatment when it comes to treating the signs of aging.

How to Combat Neck Aging

Posted on December 28, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Smartphones have changed the way we live and interact with one another. We routinely find ourselves looking down at our mobile devices to check our latest notifications. Unfortunately, habitually craning our necks forward can be detrimental to the tone and texture of our skin.

The delicate skin around the neck is one of the first areas that begin to show signs of aging. When we flex our heads forward we create creases and folds in the skin, and over time it causes wrinkles formation. However, there are a number of ways to reverse the signs of aging. Here are our favorite treatments for the neck area:

  1. Laser Skin Resurfacing

When dealing with fine lines we recommend undergoing a series of laser skin resurfacing treatments. Laser resurfacing technology is one of the most effective tools at reducing the appearance of fine lines, and improving the overall quality of the skin.

  1. Kybella

Kybella is an injectable medication for fat reduction under the chin, and it’s an excellent choice for patients who want a slimmer and more toned neckline. This groundbreaking treatment can improve your facial profile immensely after just 2-4 treatments.

If you are concerned about premature aging, please schedule a consultation with us to see how we can help restore your youthfulness. Our trained staff uses the latest technology and research to help our patients manage all aspects of the aging process.

How to Optimize Your Skincare Regimen

Posted on December 18, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

When seasons change, it is time to re-evaluate your beauty routine. We will discuss two helpful tips to follow when optimizing your skincare regimen.

 

  1. Adapt Routines for the Season

You may find that some of your favorite summer beauty products are no longer working well during the winter. For colder months, we recommend using heavier creams because they will offer a layer of protection from the dry winter air. We also love moisturizers with ceramides, such as Skinmedica TNS Ceramide Treatment cream, because they hydrate the skin more efficiently and they are very effective at soothing dry, flaky skin.

  1. Integrate Cautiously

Although there are plenty of new and innovative beauty products to try this winter we recommend taking your time in introducing each new product to your regimen. We find that our patients experience minimal side effects when changing their beauty routines if they incorporate each new skincare product one at time. Slowly integrating new skincare products will also help you better determine which products are working for you and which ones are not. Ideally, you should give each new product a two month trial before judging its efficacy.

3 Ways to Treat Acne Scarring

Posted on August 7, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

If you have ever had acne, you know how difficult it is not to pick at them. Unfortunately, improperly breaking the skin to remove the acne can cause deep facial scarring. Luckily, there are still a number of ways to improve the appearance of acne scars. We will discuss three procedures that are highly effective in treating acne scarring.

 

Skin Tightening – The Yag laser we use in our practice is a versatile machine that can treat pigmentation problems and tighten the skin for an overall improved appearance. The laser technician will use gentle settings to induce the formation of new collagen. Collagen is a primary contributor to maintaining youthfulness of your face as it gives the skin a plumped appearance and helps maintain its elasticity.

 

Chemical Peel – Chemical peel is a highly customizable procedure that can rejuvenate the skin and treat hyperpigmentation issues caused by acne. It is essential to choose an experienced aesthetic medicine practitioner to perform this procedure as they are responsible for determining the strength of the peel. I recommend starting with lighter peels such as SkinMedica’s Vitalize Peel and work your way up to more powerful Rejuvenize Peel. With this treatment plan patients usually see consistent results with minimal side effects.

 

Laser Skin Resurfacing – There are two types of lasers used for laser skin resurfacing treatments, ablative and non-ablative. Both types of lasers target the dermis layer of the skin to stimulate collagen formation. Ablative lasers destroy the epidermal layer of the skin to reach the dermis. Because of this, treatments with ablative lasers require a lot of downtime.
In our practice we use Palomar Starlux 1540 Fractional laser. It is a non-ablative system that uses laser energy to gently treat acne scarring and promote collagen formation.
