Medical Grade Skin Care Products
The skin care products you use on a daily basis are an important part of your beauty routine and can get you on your way to even-toned, smooth and glowing skin. It’s often a good idea to tackle skin issues with a skin care regimen and less intensive treatments like chemical peels before you try more aggressive treatments like lasers. If you have young, relatively healthy skin, chemicals peels and skin care products may provide enough improvement; on the other hand, if your skin has a lot of sun damage and you’re considering undergoing a more aggressive skin rejuvenation treatment at Dr. Marcus’s office, skin care can complement the results of those treatments and allow you to protect your investment.
Dr. Marcus carries highly effective, high-quality formulations of medical grade skin care products to transform your skin. Nancy Honsa, NP and our Aesthetic Medical Technicians and Aestheticians Shawnie Easton and Nikki Albin are skin care experts and are trained in the medical-grade product lines carried in the office, including Obagi and SkinCeuticals. We invite you to schedule a personalized skincare consultation with one of our providers. During a consultation, your provider will analyze your skin and personalize a skin care regimen with products that will address your skin concerns and work for your skin type. Your provider may also recommend complementary procedures and treatments that can be used in tandem with your skin care program to provide you with the best outcome for your particular skin type.
