Skin Care

Good Skin care is essential to aging gracefully. Proper skincare can slow down the harmful effects of the environment and help to slow down the natural aging process. Consistency and patience are a must when a skin care regimen is put in place. After all, beautiful people have beautiful skin and that did not happen in a week.

Before good skin care can be attempted, it is important to understand what skin type you are and to develop a plan for what it is you are wanting to correct and/or prevent. Skin care can be overwhelming and meeting with a professional to set up a complimentary consultation with us is encouraged. We can help guide you through this and suggest the best products for you to invest in for your skin.

Here at Face Techniques we only sell pharmaceutical grade skin care. This means we are allowed to carry and sell products that have a higher percentage of active ingredients, because we are a medical facility. What surprises our clients the most, is that they are similar in price to cosmeceutical grade (less active ingredients) products that they are buying at big retail stores which deliver minimal results.

The first step to good skin care besides buying it from a medical spa or dermatologist office, is cleansing your skin twice a day, no matter what! This is an important step in removing dirt and cellular debris from your skin. Twice a week you should also exfoliate your skin to remove dead skin cells.

Second is to correct. This is a broad area for most people and is different for everyone. There is no such thing as one cream for all skin types. Correcting can include everything from adult acne to fine lines and wrinkles, rosacea or sun damage. All of these conditions require different treatments. To develop your personalized skin care treatment plan a consultation is optimal.

Third is moisturizing the skin twice a day. Moisturizers are used based on your skin type (i.e. oily, dry or combination) to ensure proper benefits and effectiveness.

The fourth and most important step is to protect your skin with proper sunscreen. An SPF of 30 or greater is a must and it should be a sunscreen made specifically for the face. When out in the sun, sunscreen needs to be applied every three hours. Sun damage is a huge contributor in premature aging and will cause sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles as well as broken capillaries. Getting in the habit of using sunscreen every day, regardless of the season, is a great way to protect the investment that you make in your skin.
