Many patients are under the impression that skin care products are only for people who already have visible wrinkles. The truth is that we gradually age as soon as we are born! So no matter your age, you need a proper skin care regimen that works with your particular skin type.
Did you know that 80% of people are using products that are not designed for their skin type? You will be amazed how good your skin looks when you use the correct products with proper ingredients. In Marina’s practice we customize skin care regimens for patients based on their specific needs and skin type.
When we design a regimen for our patients, every step matters. You cannot use the product that worked for your friend and expect results or to use one product from the regimen and not the other. Every product and sequence of layering it matters. Your cleanser can affect how your moisturizer or serum works.
For example, ingredients like oleic acid and hyaluronic acid increase the absorption rate of ingredients that are applied before and after by creating tiny holes within the skin. Retinoids, on the other hand, can cause dryness in sensitive skin types, so you do not want to increase the penetration of these ingredients in patients with sensitive skin.
Finally, Marina and her team addresses the importance of a healthy lifestyle and dietary habits when discussing skin aging. Properly wearing SPF on a daily basis, avoiding prolonged sun exposure, getting enough sleep and exercise, and following a healthy diet all have a profound impact on the skin’s health and appearance.
