Great skin is not merely a matter of good luck or genetics — your daily habits have a vital impact on what you see in the mirror.  The goal of any skincare routine is to tune up your complexion so it’s functioning at its best. With that being said, we know that depending on your specific skin concerns, you might want to troubleshoot or target any areas requiring specialized care. If you are looking for a cornerstone to build your own tailored skincare routine, keep reading! At The Medical Skin Clinic, we want you to understand the basics of skincare and ultimately help you to make well-informed decisions on your skin.

DAILY

Most people should be using a cleanser, a toner, a specialized serum or serums, a moisturizer, and SPF every morning and evening.

Keep in mind how important it is to wash off makeup and or dirt and sweat at night and layer on your skincare products, as your skin cells regenerate at night!

Tip: Be mindful of using clean sheets and towels! Make sure you use a specific soft towel for your face only and a fresh pillowcase every night. 

  1. Cleanser (Daytime/Nighttime)
    Face washes and cleansers remove dirt, oil, and pollution from the skin. Cleansers also dissolve any excess oil, makeup, and grime from your face.
  2. Toner (Daytime/Nighttime)
    This is a liquid designed to cleanse the skin and shrink the appearance of pores or add hydration to the skin. A toner’s job is meant to gently refresh your skin without stripping it of its natural moisture. It also helps drive other products deeper into your skin.
  3. Anti-Aging Serum (Daytime/Nighttime)
    Anti-aging serums come in many different varieties that can address a range of specific skin concerns. We think of them as vitamins for your skin. Your skincare specialist can direct you to the serum or serums that would be best for you. We recommend the C E Ferulic serum from SkinCeuticals, or the Daily Power Defense serum from ZO Skin Health. Both of these serums reverse or combat the effects of aging.
  4. Moisturizer (Daytime/Nighttime)
    Moisturizer will help treat and protect your skin if it’s dry and prevent it from drying out again. In some cases, you might want to use a gel moisturizer if you have oily skin. Regardless of your skin condition, it is always recommended to wear a moisturizer.
  5. Sunscreen (Daytime)
    Using sunscreen daily, even when it is cloudy or raining, decreases the risk of developing skin cancer. It also slows the aging process and prevents brown spots and other skin discolorations!When it comes to skincare, the key to success is choosing the best medical-grade products. We carry the best selection of skincare products on the market, ZO Skin Health, Alastin, and SkinCeuticals, and we are happy to guide you toward the products that are best suited for your particular needs.

QUARTERLY

Are you wondering how soon is too soon to get preventive Botox and fillers? In a nutshell, the answer is you can start using Botox whenever you begin to be bothered by the lines and wrinkles on your face. Plus, you may benefit from preventative Botox treatments, which smoothes wrinkles before they have a chance to deepen and become permanent. 

Botox and dermal fillers are injectable cosmetic treatments, usually administered in a medical spa. These are minimally invasive treatments, meaning they do not involve downtime nor surgery. Botox and fillers are designed to correct specific dermal issues, combine them into one holistic treatment, and enhance your natural beauty by restoring your youthful skin! 

 

YEARLY

We know you want to age gracefully, and so we recommend that once or twice a year, you should give your skin a well deserved Halo Laser Resurfacing treatment to feel comfortable in every stage of your life. Halo™ can provide comprehensive skin rejuvenation with incredible precision and minimal downtime. The Halo™ system utilizes a hybrid fractional laser that can emit both ablative (tissue removal) and non-ablative (no tissue removal) wavelengths. Halo Laser Resurfacing restores your natural skin glow by reducing fine lines, pigment, acne scars, and large pores.
