Celebrity AntiAging Secrets- You can get them too!

Recently we read Cosmopolitan's article on “Why They Still Look This Fantastic”. There are so many celebrities over the age of 40 who continue to look young and vibrant. Who doesn’t think Jennifer Lopez has flawless skin and she is over 40! Cosmo has the same advice that we give to our clients.

1) “They are obsessive about sunscreen”
Sunscreen! Sunscreen! Sunscreen!

Wear it every day. The sun is the number one factor in aging skin. We carry EltaMD, the best line of sunscreen available, affordable, and Paraben Free. EltaMD is recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation.

2) “They were the first to fall in love with retinoids”
Retinoids – erase fine lines, unclog pores, boost collagen, and speed cell turnover to even out skin discoloration and smooth skin. Apply Tretinoin every night at bedtime.

3) “They’re exfoliating queens”
As we age, skin cell turnover slows down. This can lead to dull and rough appearing skin. We offer several options to help you exfoliate and let your skin glow. We have product, Facials, Chemical Peels, and even Microlaser Peels. Ask our clinicians which option would benefit you the most.

4) “They never tolerate a skin freak-out”
We have a solution- our Obagi NuDerm System. Using the kit daily, you will notice your skin transform. You will be less prone to breakouts.

Wash your face twice a day using Obagi cleanser and then apply Toner. In the morning, apply Clear, which contains hydroquinone to correct hyperpigmentation. You will then need to apply Exfoderm which contains alpha-hydroxy acid to removes old skin cells while promoting new cells for lighter and brighter skin. At night, you will appIy Blender with Tretinoin.

5) “They’re proactive with injectables and fillers”
No more wrinkles- Botox is available and one of our most popular treatments.
Over time as we lose collagen, our face begins to sag. Our cheeks lose their plumpness and our frown lines become more prominent. Injectables can help plump your face by adding volume. They can also fill in your frown lines which make them less noticeable.
Ask us about Juvederm and Radiesse. Our clinicians can customize a treatment for you.

Come visit us. You can have young and vibrant skin- just like the celebrities.
