Maintenance of Your Skin


Repairing the effects of age and sun damage is always more costly and time-intensive than maintaining those gains.  It’s like a house: it’s a lot easier to keep a nice house maintained than it is to fix one up that is run down.

To maintain your newly improved skin should require only your daily care with products and 2-4 visits a year to your dermatologist.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
