Dr. C’s Potions and Products
From my studies I believe that facial skin care should include a Retinoic acid night cream to build collagen and reduce wrinkles, a Vitamin C cream for its antioxidant benefits and a good moisturizer/sunscreen. There is no cream no matter what the price which I have found to be more effective than these.
Vitamin C is essential for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of the body. Vitamin C helps to make collagen a major protein in skin and to heal wounds. Vitamin C along with vitamin E, beta-carotene and other plant based nutrients are antioxidants. Antioxidants block some of the damage caused by free radicals, substances that damage DNA. The build up of free radicals may contribute to the aging process of skin and other organs.
Many of my patients suffer from hyper-pigmented (dark areas) skin conditions which can improve with a skin bleacher. Resistant dark pigmented areas (eg. below the lids) and scars can be lightened with Chemical Peels, Laser or Intense Pulsed Light treatments.
For these reasons we offer to our patients the following:
Retinoic Acid Rejuvenating Vitamin A Cream. This exfoliating collagen inducer when applied nightly reduces fine lines by building new collagen and evens out discolorations. It increases cellular turnover, with thickening of the dermis and improvement in elastic fibers. Strengths of .025%, .05% and .10% are available.
VITAMIN C ANTIOXIDANT FACIAL SERUM.
Vitamin C is research proven to decrease the number of free radicals in the skin. This antioxidant action decrease the signs of aging caused by exposure and time.
LUX- C Vitamin C and E Antioxidant Facial Serum.
With two of the most effective antioxidants daily use prevents age and environmental damage to the skin.
