Skin Care/Ancillary Services
The key to a youthful appearance is maintaining good skin health. This cannot be overstressed. We have learned of the skin damaging effects of the sun and of the importance of good nutrition, exercise, and the avoidance of smoking. The aging process begins the day we are born. In the beginning this constitutes growth, but as we get older the growth slows down and our body's ability to repair daily damage decreases. Since we are forewarned of this, we can preemptively provide our skin with the products it requires to stave off some of the damaging effects of our environment and the aging process. This begins with products that are specially formulated to enhance the effect of one another. A single product will not suffice. Dr. Obagi, a dermatologist, realized this in the 1980's and formulated a line of products to address the needs of the aging skin. It is these products that Dr. Friedlander herself used for many years. These products are aimed at exfoliating old, dead, dry layers of skin, correcting and preventing sun damage and pigmentary problems, and finally stimulating new, healthy skin. Dr. Richard Fitzpatrick, a noted dermatologist who is most famous for developing a system for skin typing, developed the SkinMedica line of products, based on the science of the skin's own healing abilities. These scientifically proven compounds include essential ingredients for healthy skin ranging from vitamins C and E to retinol to TNS®, a patented blend of growth factors, soluble collagen, antioxidants and matrix proteins. Using either the Obagi Medical Products or the SkinMedica products, Dr Friedlander can recommend a program specially formulated for your skin type that will lead to a maximum benefit, and youthful appearing skin at all ages.
