FaceMD Anti-Aging Skin Regimen

The FaceMD skin care Anti-Aging Regimen is designed to reduce wrinkles, improve skin discoloration and tone, and hydrate the skin. The key to improving aged and sun damaged skin is Cleansing, Toning, Exfoliating, Hydrating, and Protecting. In fact, Exfoliation and Hydration is the most effective non surgical method to restore aged, wrinkled skin. Many FaceMD products contain strong hydrating components that are needed for healthy beautiful skin. In addition, many FaceMD products contain the anti-oxidant Pomegranate.

The FaceMD Botanic Cleanser and Botanic Toner clean, prepare and protect the skin. Regular soaps and cleansers remove the skin’s natural “Essential Lipids” that is necessary for healthy skin. The FaceMD Cleanser and Toner protect the skin’s natural “Essential Lipids” while cleaning and toning the skin.

Vitamin C Serum acts as an anti-oxidant to protect the skin of the face and neck.

When we are young, the skin continually regenerates thereby keeping our skin smooth and toned with an even complexion. However, as we age, our skin repair process slows down. The skin then regenerates more slowly, loses hydration, thins and losses its elastic properties.

Exfoliation of the damaged skin surface is the key to kick-starting and speeding up the skin regeneration and repair process. Exfoliation can improve all layers of the skin, creating a smoother more hydrated surface with a more even skin tone. Exfoliation is the most effective non surgical method to improve wrinkled, aged, sun damaged skin. FaceMD Natural Exfoliator uses the best and most effective ingredients available today.

As we age, the skin loses hydration. FaceMD Eye Cream instantly hydrates the skin, quickly softening wrinkles. In some individuals the instant wrinkle reduction can be dramatic. FaceMD Eye Cream also contains ingredients that can protect the delicate eyelid skin and reduce some types of under-eye discoloration. Face MD Eye Cream is best used each time you Cleanse, Tone and Exfoliate. However, it can always be used alone when you wish to freshen and hydrate the eyelids.

The facial and neck skin can be quickly re-hydrated by adding Face MD Hydrating Facial Cream after the exfoliation process or it can be used alone.

After working to restore and repair the skin it makes sense to protect it. The sun can severely damage the skin over time. It can and will accelerate wrinkling, the development of age spots and pigmentation. Even worse, the sun can induce skin cancers. FaceMD Sunscreen is designed to protect the skin from the damaging impact of the sun.

Finally, one must approach the protection and repair of the skin as one would when making the decision to restore one’s general physical condition. It is unrealistic to expect one trip to the gym to get you in better physical condition and keep you in condition. Staying in shape requires a regular program. The same philosophy applies to repairing and protecting the skin. This is a continuous process. With proper and continued use, over time, almost everyone will improve and maintain healthier and better looking skin with the FaceMD Skin Care Program.

For those with advanced damage or thick and oily skin, additional treatment may be indicated to improve the skin. The FaceMD Skin Care Program can be used with Retin A ® type products under your doctor’s supervision. Plus the FaceMD Skin Care Program is a fantastic prep for those needing more aggressive resurfacing procedures such as light, medium or deep chemical peels or laser treatments. If you need such treatments, remember to discuss your skin preparation with your doctor prior to any treatment.

For those who either do not need or do not want more aggressive skin resurfacing treatments, the FaceMD Skin Care Program is a wonderful treatment that can improve the skin with continued use. The time it takes to see results will vary with the skin type, skin condition, age, genetics, health and effort of each person.

FaceMD Program to Improve Skin Tone and Reduce Pigmentation

The FaceMD system can help exfoliate unsightly age or sun induced pigment spots. Many times the FaceMD system can be used alone to improve pigmentation problems. However, your doctor can add medical grade Hydroquinone to the FaceMD system when resistant pigmentation is encountered. More difficult pigment problems may require more aggressive resurfacing procedures.
