Do you sometimes look at a baby's skin and wonder, "Did my skin ever look and feel like that?" What if you could make your skin baby-smooth and soft to the touch again?
In all likelihood, none of us will ever quite regain that same fine texture and resilience, no matter what we do. Yet, there are ways to get back much of the smoothness and luminosity that we lose with age and exposure to the sun.
If you think a trip to the beach is the only outdoor activity that’s capable of ruining your skin---think again. The damage is really more from the accumulation of chronic daily sun insults-even through the windshield of your car-that's the main culprit in sunny locations like LA---(and you don't even get a tan from that!)
The number one reason for the loss of soft and smooth skin? Under-estimating the power of the sun...a little bit at a time.
The body's immune system attempts to clean up the damage daily, but over time it becomes overwhelmed. As all that daily sun exposure adds up over the decades your body's clean-up crew just can't keep up. By the way, your body never forgets ANY of the sun it's had!
It's almost like having one fire station in all of NYC that's supposed to be able to answer all the calls. The bell rings, the truck races down the street to put out the fire and before they get done, another fire call comes in. In short order, there's too much going on and hundreds of calls get ignored.
Daily protection (with sun blocks and antioxidants) and correction (with antioxidants, retinoids, growth factors and AHA's) go a long way toward freeing up your immune system to correct some of the damage you got on that last vacation to the beach--instead of tying it up with what you got on yesterday's drive home from the office
How do you reverse some of the sun damage you unknowingly allowed to happen? And how do you prevent future damage?
Skin Care is a process - not 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.
Start every day with the all-the-time 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 sun block, 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
"Fix-its" Micro-exfoliation (microdermabrasion) to polish the skin and allow it to readily accept nourishing treatments. Dr. Fitzgerald loves the Silkpeel for it's 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 to renew and rejuvenate 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.
Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing Brush - The Clarisonic brush uses the same sonic cleansing technology as the well-known Sonicare Toothbrush. By providing a superior level of deep cleansing, the Clarisonic Brush prepares the skin for better absorption of active care products, helps clear clogged pores, reduces inflammation and improves skin tone clarity. Watch the Clarisonic videos to see just how clean your skin will be.
