January Skin Care Recommendations

January is a time of renewal and looking forward. As we change the calendars to a new year, it’s an ideal time to take stock of the things we would like to improve and to feel and look our best. Self-assurance arises from an appreciation of one’s own qualities and this time of year it is empowering to seek out things that will bring fulfillment like intensifying an exercise plan, discovering a new creative outlet or seeking ways to boost our confidence. Make your skincare a priority this year with some of our favorite tips:

Perfect the texture of your skin with Frax 1940. This resurfacing procedure works on the shallow epidermal layer of skin using a laser beam. Helpful to improve skin’s texture, this non-ablative laser doesn’t break the surface of the skin so the healing process is fast and comfortable. This laser procedure brings heat to the specific areas that are being treated to resurface the skin. Since heat stimulates the production of collagen, patients also enjoy a tightening of the skin with time. The depth and width of the thermal impact is controlled by the practitioner, so you can feel secure in the safety of the procedure.

Skin tightening is simple with Ultherapy, which effectively targets mild to moderate skin laxity. The only FDA-cleared treatment to use ultrasound for a face “lift,” Ultherapy is a non-invasive skin tightening procedure. It addresses the same deep layers of skin as a surgical facelift but with no downtime for recovery and is significantly lower in price.  Working on the foundational layers of skin, including the Platysma and SMAS which support the skin, Ultherapy can deliver amazing results. Although used by anyone wanting to defy the effects of aging, it has become popular with younger patients who wish to get ahead of the aging process, especially since Ultherapy is essential in stimulating the natural production of collagen to lift and tighten skin.

Your skincare routine is important and SkinMedica products are instrumental in utilizing potent ingredients to keep your skin looking its best.
