When brand loyalty pays off

Most of us have a medicine cabinet full of different skincare products from dozens of brands. But if you aren’t careful to read the label, you could be using too much of one ingredient, and not enough of another. For those who are too busy to create their own balanced skincare system, it pays to be loyal to one brand. An entire regimen from one brand is designed to work together. By using one range, you know you'll be getting the right amount of exfoliation, anti-aging properties, and SPF.


Beautiful skin in the neck of time

We sometimes forget that antiaging isn't just about the face, but taking care of our skin from the neck down. And because the skin on our neck is especially thin, it can be more prone to aging.

Non-surgical “face lift” with Ultherapy

Looking for a way to tighten your skin nonsurgically? Consider Ultherapy® laser therapy. “I call it the “Spanx Effect”—the cheeks lift back toward their apple position; the jawline tightens; the brow no longer sags. We’re actually resculpting the face. Most of my patients see an immediate result before they leave the office, and a secondary one few months later as new collagen continues to form.Read More >


Use an eye creme already!

“Eye creams are opthalmologist-tested, so they're formulated specifically for thin skin in this area. Use a formula that contains retinol or peptides, which kick-start collagen production, thereby fading lines, thickening the skin (so under-eye circles don't look as dark), and firming it to reduce puffiness. Look for one that also has strong antioxidants like vitamin C, vitamin E, or idebenone.” — Dr.Read More >
