The first step and last step of any facial therapy protocol is skin care. Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and is the most exposed area of your body. The sun, environmental contaminants, gravity and the natural aging process all take their toll on facial skin. All skin is made up of many different types of proteins, the most important being elastin and collagen. These two proteins form a matrix to give skin its volume, texture, and elasticity.
Most patients “experiment” with numerous drug-store and department store products that claim to make their skin smoother, softer, and rejuvenated. The fact is that the vast majority of these products do little other than provide temporary hydration. Furthermore, patients frequently get duped by spas offering fancy facials, but none of these treatments are actually overseen by a physician.
