The Elta MD Philosophy
EltaMD™ is founded on the belief that the responsible and innovative application of medical expertise and science will change the way physician-dispensed skin care products treat people. The EltaMD sun care line includes a complete spectrum of sun care products, one for every skin type and unique need. EltaMD skin care products focus on providing safe, effective skin care that includes deep, gentle cleansing and intense moisturizer for all skin types, including the most sensitive skin.
An allover moisturizer applied daily will help keep skin moist, but you might consider a rich, emollient moisturizer like EltaMD Moisturizer in the winter months to help combat the effects of cold, dry air. EltaMD Moisturizer seals moisture into the surface (preventing the moisture from evaporating). It is safe for even the most sensitive skin, fragrance-free, preservative-free and noncomedogenic.
The best time to moisturize is after a shower and before bed, because studies show that more transepidermal water loss occurs overnight than during the day. If you like your morning shower but your skin is dry, then moisturize again before you hit the sheets.
There are three key steps to healthy skin:
- 1. CLEANSE with a pH balanced cleanser that doesn’t contain ingredients like AHAs or Glycolic acids that may irritate sensitive skin.
- 2. MOISTURIZE with an oil-based moisturizer or lotion with a petrolatum base for maximum moisture retention and no sensitivity issues.
- 3. PROTECT with a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects the skin from exposure to both UVA and UVB rays.
We trust and recommend Elta MD skin and sun care products. They have developed wound healing and skin care products for acute care needs.
EltaMD applies that experience to create innovative product that helps develop, protect and maintain healthy skin. It gives our patient the needs they require in a line that is formulated for every skin type, lifestyle and special need.
The Skin Medica Philosophy
At SkinMedica®, they believe everyone deserves to have naturally radiant skin. That’s why they’ve dedicated years of research to formulating advanced skin care products that rejuvenate skin.
Their entire aesthetic product line is based on the science of the skin’s own healing abilities. As skin ages, elasticity decreases, lines appear and overall appearance is diminished. To counteract the effects of time, their skin care products contain restorative ingredients that work below the skin’s surface to regenerate the health of the skin.
Their scientifically proven recovery compounds include essential ingredients ranging from vitamins C and E to retinol to TNS®, their patented blend of growth factors, soluble collagen, antioxidants and matrix proteins. The impact is clear – fine lines are reduced, age spots and discoloration fade, and skin texture and elasticity is improved. All results of their commitment to creating a lifelong skin care solution for healthier skin.
