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.

Step 2: Hydrate. We recommend SkinCeuticals HA Intensifier, which produces reliably good results.

Step 3: Exfoliate. We love SkinBetter Exfoliating Peel Pads, which contain a combination of gentle acids to help exfoliate and brighten the skin. Repeat 2-3 days a week to keep skin glowing.

Step 4: Eye cream. This is a necessary step that you should do twice a day to keep this thin, vulnerable skin plump and healthy.

Step 5: Moisturize. We offer SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Moisturizer, which surpasses its competition by far. Skip in the summer and when skin feels balanced and hydrated, but for dry-skinned patients, this should be a consistent part of your routine.

Step 6: 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: Treat your lips. The SkinCeuticals Antioxidant Lip Repair and generous use of vitamin E keep lips supple and wrinkle-free.

A Piece Of The Equation

Here's an insider's secret: there is no one beauty treatment that can do it all. Skincare, surgical corrections, chemical peels, and laser treatments work in tandem to keep you looking younger, longer.
