Experience the difference of a personalized physician-administered facial rejuvenation treatment program.
As the natural aging process occurs our skin cells gradually lose their ability to rapidly turn over and renew. Combine this with the effects of sun damage, smoking, and other environmental factors and we see the result of the breakdown of collagen and elastic fibers and the increase of brown spots and pigmentation changes. The combination of these results in the appearance of aging skin:
- Fine lines, medium-deep lines, and wrinkles
- Texture changes and volume loss
- Enlarged pores
- Dull complexion
- Brown spots and red dilated vessels
- Adult onset of acne
- Pre-skin cancer and skin cancer
To help restore and revitalize the appearance of your skin, and prevent future damage, a physician-administered facial rejuvenation program is critically important. Dr. Shire performs a physical examination of the skin of your face, neck, and décolleté’. He then designs a personalized facial rejuvenation skin care program just for you.
Our facial rejuvenation skin care products are carefully researched and tested. They contain the most effective ingredients available. Our patients’ needs for facial rejuvenation treatment are addressed through the use of the following agents depending on their needs:
Facial rejuvenation treatment derived from Vitamin A acts to re-accelerate the turnover of skin cells and help reduce the incidence of brown spots, skin cancer, acne, and stimulate new collagen production, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
The entire science of hydration has changed with the use of hyaluronic acid hydrators. The days of heavy, emollient moisturizers are a thing of the past. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body to retain moisture. As we age the level of Hyaluronic acid decreases which results in dry, lifeless skin. The facial rejuvenation treatments we recommend were developed with a unique, patented formula that allows deeper skin penetration than any other hyaluronic acid product available.
Facial rejuvenation treatment often involves the use of various skin care products, and incorporating appropriate sunscreen is essential. Appropriate sunscreens and knowledge of their application is crucial to any skin care program. The use zinc based UVA and UVB products are prescribed for daily use year-round and for special sun activities.
Neuropeptides are the newest agents that help reduce fine lines. The most effective of these protein molecules is Matrixyl, a compound that mimics the skins own natural regeneration process.
Topical Vitamin C is a popular ingredient in facial rejuvenation treatments as it stimulates collagen production and lightens brown spots.
Various cleansers including those that are based on hyaluronic acid are prescribed according to patient needs.
