Simplifying Skincare for Men

Some great skincare advice for men from DefenAge…
A man’s skin care routine doesn’t need to be complicated or confusing. Many guys steer clear of a skin care routine for these reasons. But, if you care about the common concerns that most men do—wrinkles, dullness, sun damage, or acne—building an effective regimen is an important step in meeting your skin care goals. A men’s skincare kit can address your various needs. Here’s one simple routine that, if done consistently, can pay off in the way your skin looks and feels over time.

Face Cleanser

Ditch the soap if that’s been in your repertoire over the years. Soap is extremely drying and strips your skin of its natural oils and protective barrier. A high-quality face cleanser will practically melt away dirt, sweat, excess oils, environmental stressors, and any other debris on the surface of your skin. A product with prebiotics will keep your skin’s natural barrier healthy and intact. Your skin should be left feeling hydrated and soft, not tight or squeaky clean. A great skin care routine always starts with an effective face cleanser.

 

Moisturizing Cream

Moisturizers help the skin stay hydrated, but your skin shouldn’t feel greasy when wearing one. The best moisturizers won’t have an off-putting smell either. Choosing a fragrance-free formula is important. A great product will absorb into your skin and you shouldn’t feel like you’re even wearing a moisturizer. With consistent use, your skin can look brighter and feel firmer. The overall tone and texture of your skin can also appear smoother and more even.

 

Serum

This is like a shot of goodness for your skin. The best serums are potent and designed to absorb effectively into your skin, imparting all the beneficial active ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid and niacinamide. A high-quality serum can help minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles, revive the skin’s natural moisture barrier, improve the look of visible firmness, and minimize the appearance of skin discolorations. With an anti aging cream and powerful serum, you’re well on your way to great-looking skin.

 

Exfoliating Mask

If you have two minutes to spare, you can do a weekly exfoliating mask. It’s really that easy—and it makes a huge difference for the overall look of your skin. A great formula can help renew your skin and remove dead skin cells that linger on the surface. The best exfoliating face mask will gently polish and refine the look of your skin with ingredients such as ultrafine sugar crystals and papaya, pumpkin, and pomegranate enzymes, which are natural exfoliators.


Those are the basic products that will help transform your skin, so that it appears smoother, more youthful, and healthier. If you’ve been looking for an ideal way to visibly improve exhausted-looking or damaged skin, start here.

maricela-clear-and-brilliantOksana is giving Maricela a Clear + Brilliant treatment using safe fractional laser technology to address the early signs of aging skin.

Maricela has photodamage on her chest, which is caused by sun-exposure. Photodamaged skin can get wrinkled, rough, mottled and hyperpigmentated. After several treatments Maricela can expect improved pigment and texture.

Next time you are in the office, ask Maricela about her Clear + Brilliant treatments.

 

Tarzan needs Kybella

· In the News · Comments Off on Tarzan needs Kybella

closeupWhen we expanded our office space we didn’t realize we’d acquire a mascot! Pictured is “Tarzan,” who from a quick web search appears to be an iguana.

No worries though, Tarzan is outside of the windows in our new “tree rooms.” He comes to say hello every morning.

If you don’t want your skin to look like Tarzan’s, book an appointment for an anti-aging treatment or a skin cancer check. widerangle

We think Tarzan could benefit from a few Kybella treatments to get rid of his double chin.

Sculptra Provides Natural Looking Results and Can Take Years Off of Your Face

· Fillers · Comments Off on Sculptra Provides Natural Looking Results and Can Take Years Off of Your Face

I recently attended some refresher training on Sculptra from one of the most expert injectors of the product, a cosmetic dermatologist. I like to attend continuing education to learn from others and refine my techniques.

I’m very enthusiastic about the results patients achieve with just two or three sessions of Sculptra. The injections stimulate collagen over the bone.  This new collagen is key in regenerating fullness in areas where loss of volume and/or wrinkles have taken over.  It gives very natural and long-lasting results – renewing the angles of youth.  Take a look at these before and after photos.
