Skin Care Is More Than Self Care

A facelift is the most complete method of long-term surgical rejuvenation. However, contouring facial tissue does not impact the quality of your skin, which is why good skin care and other reparative treatments go hand in hand with facelifts. Advanced, medical-grade skin care lines offer the best products; unlike drug store brands, medical-grade skin care works. These products are exclusively sold in medical practices because appropriate guidance is necessary to indicate which products are right for you and how to properly use them. At C + Co Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics in Charlottesville, Virginia, Dr. Elizabeth Chance has a variety of excellent skin care products that are clinically tested and proven to be effective.

A Simple Routine For Most Skin Types

It may be hard to believe, but your skin care regimen is important to your overall wellness. When you commit to a good at-home routine, even the most damaged skin will improve in quality, texture, and tone. Here's a basic routine that you can start at home today:

Step 1

Cleanse. During colder months, switch to hydrating or oil cleansers to ensure you don’t strip your skin of its natural oils. We recommend the ZO Gentle Cleanser.

Step 2

Exfoliate. We love ZO Exfoliating Polish, which contains a combination of gentle acids to help exfoliate and brighten the skin. Repeat 2-3 days a week to keep skin glowing. We also recommend VI Chemical Peel products, which target acne, fine lines, sun damage, and more.

Step 3

Tone. Esing ZO Complexion Renewal Pads. 

Step 4

Vitamin C antioxidant using SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic for skin brightening, antiaging, and environmental protection. 

Step 5

Moisturize. We offer SkinCeuticals Daily Power Defense which accelerates barrier restoration and extends skin hydration, support continuous healthy skin and support antiaging.

Step 6

Eye cream. Using the ZO growth factor eye serum.

Tretinoin. This Vitamin A cream is the holy grail of anti-aging. Vitamin A creams should be included in anyone’s skin care regimen unless indicated otherwise by a doctor. Work with your provider to find a brand that’s right for you.

Step 7

For the morning routine, sunscreen. We recommend ISDIN Eryfotona Actinica SPF 50 sunscreen that protects and correct sun damage.
