03/25/2024 11:32AM ● By KENDALL BEISWANGER

Spring is a time of rejuvenation and new beginnings, However amidst all the excitement, we always forget that health is your wealth, and just as we prioritize exercise, nutrition, and mental health, skin care should also be a priority to combat premature aging, skin infections, and even skin cancer. A well- rounded approach to health and wellness should include your skin for an overall balanced and healthy lifetsyle.

That’s why we created this map to take the complication out of choosing what is best for your skin, with scientific and evidence-based facts from board-certified physician and local expert in aesthetics medicine Dr. Colleen Parker. As we implement healthy changes during the spring and beyond, let’s not forget that our skin deserves care and attention, too!

Your Road Map to Healthy Skin This Spring ... ‘Tis the season for lawn mowing, but we don’t mean that kind of grass! 


Growth factors Support the skin as it ages! 

Growth factors are natural proteins that stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in the skin. As we age, our body is unable to make these as quickly as before, which is why growth factors are great for preventing signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles , and loose or sagging skin.


Retinoid Healthy skin is beautiful skin! 

Retinol, retinoid, and tretinoin are all compounds related to vitamin A. Using retinoids will increase skin cell turnover to renew the skin and reverse signs of photo- aging (sun damage). Vitamin A is important for skin cell function and can help protect from harmful UV rays and skin cancer! 


 Antioxidants Protect from environmental factors! 

Our skin is exposed to free radicals daily. It is important to protect your skin from these radicals to prevent the degradation of skin cells over time. Antioxidants such as vitamins C and E are both effective antioxidants to protect your skin. 


SPF - Sunscreen is your best friend for healthy skin! 

Physical SPFs (specifically ones with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as the active ingredients) provide a protective shield against harmful UVA, UVB,  and UVC rays. Skin cells damaged by the sun will prematurely age your skin and put you at risk of skin cancer, further skin damage and overall  degradation of your health. Simply put...just wear it 


Speciality - Your Rx to healthier skin!

A great part of medical aesthetics and skin care is the ability to provide and give you access to specialty products such as prescription medications specific to your skin, aesthetic goals, and skin type. Just as we treat the health of our body with medicine, we can target and treat skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, melasma, wrinkles, or psoriasis with specialty prescription- strength products. We can treat the skin from the inside out as well as the outside in for optimal skin health and transformative results. Always consult with your provider to help you discover and determine the products that would be best for you and your skin type because healthy and happy skin is beautiful skin!
