Skin Care in New York City

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Why do I carry skin care products and have my nurse do office peels on my patients; because it works.

I can personally vouch for what skin care products do for my skin, as does the beauty blog BFF Beauty.  I have been using them for over a decade. It’s easy, instead of soap and maybe a moisturizer; use a cleanser followed by an anti-aging cream, I even throw on an eye cream. Patients can’t believe my age when I tell them I’m 56. I still get plenty of sun playing golf, in the pool or on the beach with my kids, but I always wear sunblock and reverse or reduce the aging effects of the sun with a daily combination of retinoids, anti-oxidants and growth factor.


Our new skincare line is called MyBody. This is a fantastic line with products that can help every skin type. Our skincare specialists, Kim or Chrsitine, can help choose just the right products for you. First we need to know your “tolerance” for how many products you are willing to use. Some individuals keep it simple: cleanser and one product. Some are willing to go the extra step(s) by adding eye creams and more potent anti-aging cream combinations.


Why should you get skincare products from a doctor’s office?

 
Generally our products are stronger and dispensed by trained professionals. Sometimes a patient will call stating that their skin is red, irritated or peeling. We can offer a change in their regimen or even swap it out for another product. In the department stores, the well known skincare lines may have the latest ingredients, but they are kept weak to minimize problems and returns. If there are any reactions or returns it would be a much bigger problem. That is circumvented by making the products weaker. Plus it may even be a salesgirl selling you the same product that they would suggest for you, your mother or even your grandmother.
The next step after home products are office peels. Christine, our office Skincare nurse performs these no-peel peels. You get glowing skin without actually peeling. With the new MyBody technology myPROBIOTIC PEEL enjoy a relaxing spa-like experience. myPROBIOTIC PEEL features Skin Renewal TechnologyTM utilizing probiotics to help stimulate your immune system to a naturally balanced healthy and more youthful state .
Don’t believe us, we recently had a fantastic review of the myPROBIOTIC PEEL in the prestigious bffbeautyblogspot, click to read about it.
