While a proper skin care regimen can improve the appearance of your skin, topical skin care products work best when patients follow a healthy lifestyle, including a good diet, regular exercise and ample amount of sleep. Skin care products can also be used in combination with light- or energy-based devices and injectables to achieve best results. Dr. Grossman will tailor treatment to your particular skin care concerns, and will discuss various professional and at-home options for overall improvement during your consultation.
Lasers and light-based technologies continue to be at the forefront of skin rejuvenation procedures. These devices harness the power of light energy to precisely target the skin to improve tone, texture, radiance, signs of aging and photodamage. People with darker skin types can be treated with most lasers, but there is a higher risk of pigmentation changes after certain treatments.
Dr. Grossman performs microdermabrasion for overall skin rejuvenation and to remove dead skin, dirt and contaminants. Tiny particles pass through a vacuum tube to gently scrape away dead skin cells. Patients report they immediately notice a “glow,” and softer, smoother, and younger looking skin. Makeup also goes on more smoothly following microdermabrasion. Monthly maintenance is required to achieve the best results.
Glycolic acid peels gently resurface skin to reduce brown spots, blotchiness, and acne.
Following a comprehensive consultation, Dr. Grossman will advise you on the ideal skin care regimen to suit your particular skin type. The optimum program is often a combination of in-office resurfacing treatments and selected home care products designed to enhance the benefits in between office visits.
