Winter = Dry Skin

allysonWinter is coming…… Which means dry skin is coming with it. Even people with oily/oily in areas skin types will get dryer in the winter. This is a result from the combination of there being less moisture in the air and the heat being on which also drains the skin of moisture/hydration. What will greatly help with this dilemma is a Hyaluronic Acid serum added to your daily skincare regimen.

Hyaluronic Acid will not only help you hang on to the moisture you naturally produce but also what you are putting into your skin. Naturally found in the body, hyaluronic acid creates fullness, secures moisture, provides structural support to cells vital for collagen production, and can hold 1,000 times its weight in moisture!

So, when your moisturizer isn’t enough this winter consider adding a hyaluronic acid serum such as Phaz Hyaluronic Acid Blend (which is offered at our office) instead of switching moisturizers.  For best results, apply hyaluronic acid serum to the affected area directly after washing your face to retain the moisture and then apply your growth factor, antioxidant, moisturizer and sunscreen. It really could make all the difference for you.  Allyson- Licensed Aesthetician at the MedicalSpa at Corbett Cosmetic

Is there really a new wrinkle smoother?

It looks likes come July, Botox is going to have some competition here in the U.S. The name of the new product is Dysport. It is made by a company called Medicis, who make Restylane.

As an experienced Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon here in Louisville, KY I have performed thousands of Botox injections and am very pleased with the results, as are my patients. Point is, personally, I don’t see a need for more botox but it’s coming regardless. So, let’s check it out!

Are there any differences? I don’t know because I haven’t used Dysport yet. Supposedly, the new toxin starts to work faster, lasts slightly longer and will be slightly less expensive than botox. Whether this is true or not remains to be seen but the product does have FDA approval. In addition, the problems associated with the injections are of the same type and frequency as those found with botox, at least in the control group the FDA studied.

Look for the product around the first of July. We will run an introductory special so check your e-mail. If we don’t have your e mail please call the office and we’ll add your address to our blast list.
