Are daily skincare regimens really that important?

YES!!!   While I love Botox, Filler, Kybella, Chemical Peels, etc.. I always tell my patients how important a daily skincare regimen is.  I equate it to running a marathon, climbing Kilimanjaro or doing a triathlon.  The important part is how you train for the big day, skincare is exactly the same.  There are so many wonderful, medical grade skincare products, backed by a ton of research.  For example, HA 5 from SkinMedica is currently being researched along with Botox to prove that it extends the length of Botox. I am a perfect example, my Botox only lasted two to two and a half months, once I started using HA 5, my Botox lasted 3 months to the day.  There are practices in Southern California which are currently studying this exact phenomenon.  Who would not want to extend their Botox with a wonderful moisturizer made with Hyaluronic Acid which also […]

Hi, Cheekbones!

Do you look at your cheeks and wonder where they went? Do they look fuller at the bottom of your face and not where your cheekbones are?   This is an extremely common occurrence as we age.  When we are younger we have an inverted triangle appearance to our face, meaning the higher portion of our “cheeks” where our cheek bones are have more fat and collagen than the lower portion of our cheeks. As we age, this turns into a triangle appearance because our fat deposition decreases, the ligaments become weaker and we get a malar fat pad shift, all of which causes sunken cheeks, sagging skin, deeper nasolabial folds and jowls.   Juvederm vs. Voluma Patients come into our practice requesting Juvederm in their nasolabial folds and we often times assess them and recommend Voluma in their cheeks.  Voluma is an FDA approved dermal filler which is specifically […]

The Importance of Sunscreen

Making it part of your daily skincare routine We hope you all are enjoying the extra hour of sunlight this Spring and think it’s an excellent time to discuss sunscreen.  Not only is sunscreen important when it’s sunny out, but is just as important when it’s cloudy, raining or snowing.  The reason is that UV (ultraviolet) rays are the part of sunshine which damages our skin and can cause skin cancer.   UV rays are broken down into 3 categories: UVA rays which cause aging of the skin and cause wrinkles. Some skin cancers are caused by UVA rays and are found in tanning beds. UVB rays are the rays which cause sunburn and have a higher likelihood of causing skin cancers.   UVC rays are part of welding torches and mercury lamps.  The most important thing to remember is that 10-15 minutes of unprotected skin can cause damage. It’s […]
