Skin care should be a priority for everyone
Healthy skin is the cornerstone of a youthful appearance. If your skin isn’t in good shape, even the best facial plastic surgery won’t benefit you as much as it should. A professionally guided skin care program can benefit anyone:
Improve your skin’s appearance, thus enhancing your appearance in total
Protect your skin from further damage and help prevent premature aging
Postpone the need for facial rejuvenation surgery and save money on expensive corrective treatments
Help reduce your risk for skin cancer and other skin diseases
Help prepare your skin for any desired rejuvenation surgery
Help preserve your result from rejuvenation surgery
Why you should choose skin care from a physician
Skin care is a multi-billion dollar industry in the United States, so it is no surprise that many patients we see use over-the-counter products, many of which are very expensive. Unfortunately, it is also no surprise when we hear that these products are not effective. Here is the reason:
For consumer protection, the FDA tightly controls the strength of active ingredients in products sold over-the-counter. This includes “premium” cosmetic-counter products as well as brands sold through your neighbor.
“I do my own skin evaluations. I perform all injectable treatments and deeper peels myself, too. I feel patients deserve the time and attention of a board certified plastic surgeon for all treatments delivered in my practice.”—Patti Flint, M.D.
Physician-only skin care is usually more cost-effective
Dr. Flint’s three-pronged approach to facial rejuvenation
In Dr. Flint’s experience, the best results with facial rejuvenation are achieved by a comprehensive, three-pronged approach: skin care, non-surgical injectable treatments, and surgery, if needed. Surgery alone does not always provide the best results. Likewise, at-home skin care products alone may not be enough to see real change if aging has progressed beyond the earliest stages.
Combining treatments such as injectable fillers, BOTOX, chemical peels, skin care, and when appropriate, surgery, allows Dr. Flint to address multiple issues in the most effective way possible. Aging does not occur in only one layer of the anatomy, and the synergy offered by combining treatment types allows for natural appearing, long-lasting results.
