When it comes to your skin, having a gorgeous glow, even tone, and supple texture can help you look years younger than your actual age. At James Christian Cosmetics, we strive to bring our clients the most effective, superior quality skin care products to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Read on to learn more about the active ingredients in the skin products we carry in our offices.
Treatment for Hyperpigmentation
Hyperpigmentation occurs when the skin’s melanocytes overproduce melanin, the pigment in skin. It can occur in people with any shade of skin, and is fairly common. Sun exposure, age, certain medications, and pregnancy can all contribute to hyperpigmentation issues.
Hydroquinone is a staple ingredient used to treat this condition. It is applied topically to the skin to help lighten the skin and fade areas where too much pigmentation occurs. This ingredient has been used safely for half a century and is FDA approved specifically for treating hyperpigmentation.
Often times, lightening skin creams will also include vitamin C or E, exfoliating ingredients (such as glycolic acid), or retinol to be used alongside hydroquinone. If you have asthma, please discuss this condition with your provider prior to using hydroquinone or hydroquinolone, as it can cause breathing issues for some asthmatics.
Other active ingredients you may find in skin creams we recommend include kocic acid and hydrocortisone.
Anti-Aging Skin Care
They say the “eyes are the windows to the soul.” That may be true, but the eyes are also where your true age may be unwittingly revealed. Taking care of your skin starting in your teen years is ideal, but not everyone is so conscientious.
Lifestyle habits such as smoking, not drinking enough water, and eating chemical-laden junk foods (including sugar), can all contribute to the skin aging at a faster rate. To partially turn back the hands of time, we recommend retinol (retinoids). This vitamin A based antioxidant helps to speed up cell turnover, revealing younger looking skin while also helping the skin to form new collagen.
For some men and women, crow’s feet have already taken their toll from years of poor habits, sun exposure, and facial expressions. We recommend using a high quality retinol based anti-aging skin regimen and considering neurotoxin injections such as BOTOX® Cosmetic.
BOTOX paralyzes treated facial muscles to smooth away existing wrinkles and stop new ones from forming. It’s never too late to see the beautiful results that BOTOX can bring. For deep creases, dermal fillers may also be recommended to produce the most youthful appearance possible.
