You’ve got questions. We’ve got answers.

The skin care questions you want answers to.

Working with patients and clients who deal with an array of issues from pre-teen breakouts to over-the-hill aging skin, we’ve heard almost every question out there about skin care.

Here are a few of the questions we get asked ALL the time and the answers to them…because we know you were wanting to ask them too! {By the way, keep coming back as we’ll be updating with new questions and answers all the time!}

 

Can ice really help your skin?

Yes! Ice is an all around team player when it comes to great looking skin. Ice can help with inflammatory acne flare-ups, blemishes and can even help in the rejuvenation of your skin. In fact, look no further than your freezer to help with puffy eyes, and to help products sink into your skin even faster.

Ice is an easy addition to your routine. Once you’ve cleansed your face (check out our awesome facewashes here), ice for fifteen minutes by moving and lifting the ice cube every five seconds all around the face. The ice prepares your skin to absorb your skin care products even faster – helping to produce more peeling and thus more rapid clearing. A little trick we love is making ice cubes out of chamomile tea – as both the ice and the chamomile help calm inflammation.

If you’ve had extractions that day, up the time to 30 minutes to help promote clearing and to heal the inflammation.

If you are in the middle of peeling treatments, then we suggest using a soft cloth dipped in cold water to create a cold compress to place on the face to help with overall inflammation.

What is the difference between beyond complexion’s BPO cleanser and other benzoyl peroxide products? 

The Benzoyl beyond complexion uses is micronized – which means it is broken into very fine particles. This allows us to have a higher concentration without the irritation. When combined with exfoliating beads, you get a potent cleanser that penetrates pores quickly and more effectively than standard benzoyl peroxide products. This irritation-free scrub will gently remove bacteria, dirt, and dead cells to clear acne, fast.

 

Does the order of how you apply skin care products matter?

Yes. You should always go from thinnest to thickest after cleansing.
So, toner, then serums, then gels and then lotions. Want an example of an exemplary skin care routine? Check out our 6 Steps to Glowing Skin and get your skin in shape!

 

Is it worth it to buy expensive eye cream?

Yes! The price of the very good ingredients is high and that will increase the price of the product. For example, our Intensive Eye Complex is made from effective and powerful anti-aging ingredients such as Swiss apple stem cells—a revolutionary skincare ingredient from the rare Swiss apple—offering unmatched anti-wrinkle power to smooth fine lines and wrinkles.

 

Should you change skin care routine when the temps drop? If yes, then what updates need to be made?

Absolutely. There is less humidity and the weather is dryer in the winter, so the skin becomes more sensitive. Plus, heaters dehydrate the skin (ugh). It is normal to have flare ups, peeling skin and other issues because of these changes.  If you are using beyond complexion’s Mandelic Acid 5+ re-texturizing Pads twice a day, make a change to once a day.  If you are using them once a day and they are still too drying, use them only three times a week. It is also very important to remember to always start the pads on the forehead, as it is the thickest and most stubborn skin on the face.  Ultimately, you need to keep your skin extra moisturized. We suggest using beyond complexion’s Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 30 more than twice a day if necessary.

Why we LOVE peptides

We’ve got the anti-aging products you need…

Psst…We’ve got a secret ingredient in two of our products that we want to tell you about.
What is the ingredient?
Peptides! This special synthetic ingredient is made up of amino acids that penetrate your skin and helps your cells boost collagen production, helps stimulate healthy tissue growth and reminds your older cells how to work properly – like they used to know how to when you were 20. Peptides are also known to communicate to the skin cells to help flush out toxins or render them inert.

What are the results?
Younger looking, firmer skin with less wrinkles – without the use of needles and injections (round of applause for peptides!)

Coolscultping Basics

When we were kids, we made a wish when we blew out birthday candles. We wrote lists for Santa. Basically, we believed in miracles. Well now, thanks to Coolsculpting, we can believe in miracles again.

For anyone who has battled that last stubborn inch or two of flab, only to have it persist through all manner of healthy eating and exercise, Coolsculpting is a wish granted.

What is Coolscultpting?
An FDA-approved, trademarked process using cryolipolysis technology to remove fat cells, non-invasively.

How does that work?
The process of cryolipolysis freezes the layer of fat just below the skin in a manner that destroys the fat cells. They are broken up and flushed from the body naturally. (Whoa, awesome.)

How is this different than losing weight with diet and exercise?
With diet and exercise, we “lose weight” by shrinking the fat cells, but through cryolipolysis those fat cells drain from the body, so there are fewer of them overall.

Is this a surgical procedure?
Not at all. This is a completely non-invasive, 45-minute procedure that can be performed by your trusted medical esthetician.

Who is the ideal client, and where does it work best on the body?
Men and women within 30 pounds of their ideal weight but with pockets of fat (think: arm wiggle, muffin tops, inner and outer thighs, love handles, upper and lower abs, a layer of back flab, or a wattle beneath the chin). Basically, if you’re in relatively good shape, but want that extra definition that removing about an inch and a half of fat would provide.

Are the results permanent?
Pretty much. The fat cells don’t come back so this procedure does yield long-term results. (But remember that poor food choices and a sedentary lifestyle could make your existing fat cells plump up, and diminish the effects of the procedure.)

Cost and number of sessions needed?
That depends on a few factors: where your fat pockets are, the total area you want to have treated, and the amount of fat in each area.

Is there anything else I should know?
Sessions are performed at Flores Dermatology under the oversight of Dr. Flores by Olga Valencia.
If you’re curious (and we’re pretty sure you are), come out and meet others who’ve loved the results of CoolSculpting and get a firsthand look during a live demonstration of the procedure at our upcoming CoolEvent.
