Obagi Medical – ELASTIderm Complete Complex Eye Cream

· Skin Care · No Comments

One of my patients purchased this Obagi eye cream at our office and I asked her what she thought:  “It’s light and silky.  I also like that I can use it at night and not wake up with puffy eyes.  My skin instantly drinks it in and fine lines become less noticeable.  What I really like is that I can put on foundation immediately without ‘pilling.’”

If you’re not familiar with the pilling she’s referring to, it can happen when you apply one product over another on your face and during application the products roll up into little balls.  The best way to avoid this is to let each layer dry, but on rare occasions, with certain products, even that doesn’t work.  Here are some tips from Allure Magazine on how to avoid pilling.

She continues:  “I’ve been able to apply foundation on top of the ELASTIderm Complete Complex Eye Cream with no pilling. With my sensitive skin I’ve had no reaction or problems using this eye cream.”  The eye cream is formulated with clinically proven ingredients such as several antioxidants, and malonic acid which can improve skin texture and elasticity.

Pick up a jar at your next visit to our office.

Board Certification – Why it’s so important

· Board Certification · No Comments

Does a doctor have to be board certified to practice medicine? No.  But as a patient you want someone who stays up-to-date with the latest developments, medicines and treatments in her specialty.  For any physician, board certification means your doctor has gone above and beyond the many years of education by passing the exams given by her specialty’s governing body.  In the case of dermatology, board certification is granted the American Board of Dermatology after the requirements, including additional training, are met.  The board exam demonstrates a physician’s knowledge of advances in medicine in her specialty.  See this Forbes article on patronizing only board certified dermatologists.
