In my office, the spectrum of providing skin care and educating patients are collectively referred to as Skin Fitness.
This is a highly customized program, as it needs to be, to address several related factors. First, a detailed conversation about your impressions of your present skin condition and expectations set the foundation of what we want to achieve together. Next, a careful history is taken that assembles all of your past skin treatments, services, products and results you have obtained from these. Following this, a very thorough skin exam that addresses all aspects of your skin condition and skin health is performed and documented. All this information is then integrated with a discussion of your lifestyle, exercise habits, outdoor activities, work environment and tolerance levels to formulate that special custom program to give you the results you want. In summary, we combine your expectations, history, exam, and lifestyle to formulate your custom Skin Fitness program.
Men have special needs in skin care especially as these may relate to your work and lifestyle. Men generally have larger pores, facial hair that may challenge skin care, and daily shaving that creates its own problems and needs. We understand and address the needs of men.
Your skin care program is designed to give you results in a safe and predictable way. It is designed to delay or prevent the need for plastic surgery and preserve the results of any procedure you may have.
I feel strongly committed to my patients that have had cosmetic surgery, and educating them about the need to use skin care to preserve their results and delay or prevent the need for further cosmetic surgery. After plastic surgery it is important to strengthen the remaining skin and fortify the elastic and collagen fibers in a way that could not be done prior to surgery when all is lost in the face of so much loose and excess skin.
Your examination will be that of tightened skin and more youthful features in combination with your underlying and pre-surgery anatomy. We will be focused on treating any pre-surgical skin conditions that existed, and combining these with preserving your now more youthful post-surgical features. This is our goal.
