Skin Care

Clear and supple skin is the foundation of a healthy and youthful appearance. Our skin is one of the first places to show the effects of aging and wear and tear. We start losing collagen and elastin at a very young age. Maintenance of these qualities in our skin is the best way to maintain a healthy and youthful appearance and attain that oh so wanted “graceful aging”.

When our skin is healthy and clear, it eliminates the need for the use of a lot of make-up to cover up unevenness and skin pigment issues. The avoidance of heavy make-up and the use of unwanted chemicals decreases the amount of impurities that our skin faces every day.

Having a basic skin care regime can help improve and most importantly preserve healthy, clear, and supple skin. Sometimes this can simply begin with appropriate cleansing and daily use of a good sunscreen.

Commonly asked questions about skin care:

I’m using all kinds of expensive skin care products, but nothing is helping, what can I do?

It is important to have a professional assessment of you skin type and concerns. Not all skin types are equal and not all skin concerns are equal so as you can imagine the same products will not give the same effect for everyone. In fact, medical grade skin care products can produce some unwanted side-effects when used in the wrong skin type. It is important to have a skin care regimen tailored to your skin. Then you will see beautiful results to follow like you’ve never seen before!

I had a laser treatment or a chemical peel and the results were great, but a few months later my skin went back to looking the same. Why didn’t my results last?

As with everything in life, great results require maintenance. You’ll be surprised at how simple and inexpensive a properly tailored skin care regimen can be to maintain healthy glowing skin following laser treatments.

Lasers and Radio Frequency Based Devices

Lasers are an important step in skin maintenance and improvement. Dr. Javidnia carefully selects top grade laser platforms (only available to  cosmetic surgeons) with proven results.

Different modalities of lasers can improve a broad range of skin issues such as:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Loose and saggy skin
  • large pores
  • dark spots
  • redness (and Rosacea)
  • scars
  • acne
  • broken capillaries

Lasers can provide remarkable improvements in the skin but safety is also of utmost importance with their use. Depending on your individual skin needs, Dr. Javidnia may recommend different lasers in order to achieve your skin’s maximum improvement.
