When we look great and feel confident, we are happier and more positive. As we age, it takes a little more effort than it once did. Our job at Sonata Aesthetics and Weight Loss is to help you bridge that gap to look and feel your best! You take great care of yourself; perhaps you come in and see Dr. Janowski for fillers and Dysport® on schedule? Maybe you have regular chemical peels with our Master Aesthetician Laurel? You make an investment in yourself knowing that the benefits of feeling confident will positively affect so many areas of your life; from relationships to career to your general mental health.
It’s time to protect your investment with great skin care products. The anti-aging skin care industry is big business! Billions of dollars are spent every year on advertising by skin care manufacturers trying to convince us that they have the magic formula to turn back the hands of time. Here’s a little secret they don’t want you to know: unless the ingredients are FDA approved and dispensed by a physician; they cannot penetrate the dermis. What that means is that over-the-counter skin care products cannot change the underlying condition of your skin. They may add moisture and temporarily plump the skin, but can’t get to the root of the problem. Medical-grade skin care sold at Sonata is formulated to actually change your skin. Get a Regime…and stick with it. A good skin care regime has multiple steps that need to be followed in the morning and at night… Let us help you design a regime that fits your needs, time constraints and budget. Some of us love the process of applying skin care and the more steps the better! To others, time is an issue and too many steps is daunting. We can’t wait to customize a plan that is right for YOU our beautiful Sonata patient!
A healthy skin care regime should cover these three important jobs:
Prevent, Correct, Protect
I was a teenager in the 1980s. I slathered baby oil on my whole body before I “layed out” to get a healthy glow. I didn’t know the extent of the damage I was doing to my fair skin. We know better now! 90% of age-related skin concerns are the direct result of exposure to the sun and environmental pollutants. We can prevent further damage by incorporating Vitamin C into our regime. Vitamin C is nature’s watchdog against the harsh environment. It is a powerful anti-oxidant with the ability to fight off free radicals. It serves as a sturdy barrier between your skin and everything out there! Obagi C-RX or Skinceuticals C E Ferulic, C Phoretin and Resveratrol will get the job done! Ask a Sonata team member for an expert recommendation on which is right for your skin type and concerns.
Whether your concern is rosacea, acne, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, wrinkles, or creping…we have the product for you! Ask about a complementary Visia analysis. We love getting to the source of the problem and giving product recommendations that are right for YOU!
If Retin-A is not a part of your nighttime regime, you need to start it NOW. Vitamin A (Retin-A) is the single most powerful tool we have in our battle against aging skin. Everyone over the age of 30 should be using it as part of their skin care regime. We carry several different strengths and would be happy to recommend the right one for you.
We often recommend the Obagi Nu-Derm system to our patients. It is a one-stop correcting machine designed to Prevent, Correct and Protect. If you are looking for an all-inclusive transformative regime; this is it. It is designed to take care of hyperpigmentation, texture and fine lines. If the Nu-Derm system doesn’t fit into your lifestyle, we can help you design a regime that is right for you. SkinMedica TNS Essentials Serum is a one-step system that corrects with the power of 93% human growth factors. If your concern is dry skin with decreased elasticity, Skinceuticals Tri-lipids 4-2-4 is a dream product. It is composed of cholesterol and fatty acids to heal the stratum corneum and keep the moisture deep in your skin. We would love to show you these, and so many other powerful corrective products.
We are talking sunscreen here… Use it everyday. No excuses. Especially in Colorado. To be effective and truly protect your skin from UV A (which ages our skin) and UV B (which burns) it must have zinc and/or titanium oxide. We carry many different formulations at the Sonata office. We love the tinted sunscreens. Try out our testers next time you are in. You will be surprised by the difference. They are lightweight and feel luxurious!
Change is not overnight! If you decide to get in shape and start going to the gym… you may see small differences right away, but the long-‐term benefits take some time. Your skin is no exception. Great results may be a few months away. Don’t give up! You have invested precious time and money to make some drastic changes. Your skin may even feel like its getting worse before it gets better. You may feel some burning and see some flaking… this is change! Your skin is getting acclimated to the new routine. It is repairing itself, producing collagen and healing!
We can’t wait to help design your customized skin care regime. Come see us at Sonata Aesthetics and Weight Loss to get started with your plan!
