Skin Care is a process – not only a product.
There are multiple elements that go into protecting, repairing, and nourishing your skin. Much like a recipe for a main course, each ingredient plays an essential part in making it all turn out the way you want. Skin protection, diet, adequate rest, exercise, hydration, and reparative preparations are all part of that ingredient list.
If you are looking for skin care treatments in Los Angeles or Beverly Hills, dermatologist Dr. Fitzgerald provides a wide array of products that correct skin problems and help keep your skin in great shape. Here are her favorites.
The Dr. Fitzgerald Favorites
First and Foremost – Sun Protection
Whether you are out for a morning jog or indulging in some afternoon shopping in downtown Los Angeles, it’s an absolute must to start every day with this one easy step – sun protection! UVA protection is the number 1 most important element in a skin care program.
Sun damage can add years to your “skin age.” First thing in the morning, whether you’re staying inside, going out, or even when it’s raining; whether you’re planning to be in a car or a plane or your office – put a protective layer between you and sun damage. Sunscreen and sunblock, as well as antioxidants, provide the best protection. Why spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on expensive products or treatments and then not protect those investments? Think of sun protection as an insurance policy for your skin’s health. Our chosen sunscreens.
Micro-exfoliation (microdermabrasion) can polish the skin and allow it to readily accept nourishing treatments. Dr. Fitzgerald loves the Diamond Glow for its unique ability to perform two special functions at once – both exfoliation of skin-dulling surface cells and the infusion of customized nutrients and hydrators that feed and fortify the skin.
The Intraceuticals Infusion Facial renews and rejuvenates the skin with topical hyperbaric oxygen technology. The treatment reduces the appearance of fine lines, improves skin tone and provides an instant firming and lift by using hyperbaric technology to saturate the skin with oxygen and infuse a rejuvenating hyaluronic acid serum.
Super-skin-drenching with Hydrafacial re-hydrates even the most dehydrated skin and is friendly to nearly every skin type, including those with sensitivities.
A solid skin care regimen is your best friend. Although it may seem indulgent to see your Los Angeles dermatologist or medical esthetician, they can provide the best guidance on the right products and routines that will benefit YOUR skin.
