Now that summer is officially over, most people will notice their skin is appearing dull and could use a little “glow”. Even those that followed our summer skin care instructions and wore sunscreen faithfully may still notice a difference in their skin following the hot and dry summer months.
Below are some helpful tips to get your skin looking and feeling healthy again:
AT-HOME SKIN CARE PRODUCTS
First and foremost, make sure you have a good skin care regimen at home which includes a sunscreen (Yes, even though winter months are coming, we still recommend you wear sunscreen daily!). Following summer, you may notice brown spots or melasma have started appearing on your face as a result of sun damage. Fall and winter are the perfect months to begin using our Medical-Grade skin care products like HQRA, Peel and Bleach, Lytera and Bleach cream which will help diminish brown spots and melasma while also effectively helping with fine lines and wrinkles. At Artemedica, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the latest innovation and technology. This includes the home care protocols we have developed as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. We believe there are five key components to any effective home care plan which we call the GRASS philosophy. G= Growth Factors, R= Retinoids, A= Antioxidants, S= Specialty Products, S= Sunscreen. Medical-Grade skin care is essential in keeping your skin looking and feeling great. Come see us for a complimentary skin care analysis and consultation.
IN-OFFICE SKIN CARE TREATMENTS
