Why do I need expert skin care?
When your skin is young and fresh, it’s in a constant state of growth and renewal. As you age, however, your skin health is influenced by everything from hormonal changes to damage from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays.
At Sanctuary Medical Center, your dermatologist examines your skin, takes a medical history, and devises a custom-designed plan to resolve your main issues and prevent problems in the future.
How can I keep my skin looking fresh and young?
Regular skin care treatments that slough off the dulling top layer of your skin to expose healthier skin are essential to maintaining a clear complexion. Some options include:
Facials gently exfoliate the dulling top layer of your skin. They also remove impurities, such as blackheads and whiteheads. Finally, a facial restores moisture to protect your skin.
Using various strengths of acid, your Sanctuary Medical Center aesthetician exfoliates your skin. Chemical peels improve acne, wrinkles, and dark spots while rebuilding your skin through a collagen-remodeling process.
The HydraFacial is a high-tech, three-step facial revitalization treatment that takes only 30 minutes. The three steps are:
- Cleanse and peel
- Vacuum extract and hydrate
- Fuse and protect
A HydraFacial is as effective as harsh chemical peels but without the red face or downtime.
Your aesthetician uses a special blade to gently remove the top layer of your skin in feathery strokes. Dermaplaning improves hyperpigmentation and initiates collagen remodeling.
During microdermabrasion, your expert sprays tiny crystals on your skin and then uses a special high-powered device to gently sand away the top layer. Microdermabrasion resolves surface imperfections and stimulates collagen production.
Your dermatologist may recommend combining resurfacing treatments with other therapies, including lasers and intense pulsed light (IPL).
What kind of skin care products should I use?
