Skin care should evolve as your skin does

In your 20s and early 30s, we can recommend a starter set of products to keep you looking fresh and radiant, preventing damage before it occurs. We have the most powerful prevention products you can buy … and they work even better when combined with our Hydrafacial and Clear & Brilliant laser treatment to keep skin polished, without that dead layer of skin at the surface that keeps your topicals from penetrating.

By mid-30s and 40s, we will add more power to your approach, with products that work great on their own, or even better combined with the other skin care miracles including dermal fillers, neurotoxins like Botox or Dysport, and Ultherapy.

By late 40s, 50s and beyond, when perimenopause and menopause take their toll and a prevention mindset shifts to treatment, we can combine the hardest working topicals with the latest technologies like Ultherapy, Vivace and PRP, which combined, can make invasive work largely a thing of the past.

We can help upgrade your skin care routine

Now that we have scientifically proven topical solutions that really work, it’s so important to get them into your regular routine. An investment in good skin care now will reap rewards for years to come.

We can help tailor exactly the right line-up for your unique needs during your next visit or consultation, as part of your overarching treatment plan, or call one of our skin specialists who can counsel you on the best way to get started.

The Catherine Method: Skin Care

My patients who know me well have heard my house analogy to explain how I combine treatments that work together for amazing results. It’s all about understanding the source of the problem (and a little bit of facial anatomy 101).

Think of your face like a house … your skin’s surface is the outside paint job – and is the level where proven medical topicals, cosmetics, Hydrafacials, laser resurfacing and Botox make all the difference. The subdermal layer is where natural fat pockets reside, sort of like insulation in the house’s walls. And then there are the deep layers of the face that extend 3-5mm under skin’s surface. Here lie important structural collagen bands of tissue that support facial musculature giving you those beautiful, defined facial contours of your face and jawline. Because it’s the structural layer, I compare it to the house’s scaffolding.

Each one of these tissue planes needs to be addressed when combating the aging process – and each unique face will have varying degrees of need in each of these three layers. Approaching a problem in one layer with a tool that’s best for another layer will have unnatural, not to mention unsuccessful, results. I always say that trying to repair the house scaffolding by stuffing more insulation in the house wall will only produce a distorted Whoville home! Unfortunately, many famous (and not so famous) faces have not figured this out yet, resulting in overblown distorted faces that sort of resemble that Whoville house.

Topicals play the biggest role in rejuvenating and maintaining health in the paint job layer but with long-term use may even show promise at influencing collagen production in some of the deeper tissue planes. The newest peptide-based skin care can achieve terrific results – especially when combined with Ultherapy, the non-invasive way to lift and tighten the scaffolding, micro-needling like Vivace which stimulates skin’s own collagen and elastin production, and PRP, which rejuvenates by injecting your own plasma to stimulate cell growth and collagen production, improving complexion and restoring lost facial volume.
