Full disclosure guys, in a past life I used to work in the spa industry. I have been to many many spas and received many facials so it takes a lot to impress me! I recently visited Cosmetic Laser Dermatology to receive a customized SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restorative Facial Treatment and I am so excited to share my experience with you! First of all if you didn't already know I am 40 years old so I am doing all I can within reason to stop time and keep my skin healthy, vibrant and youthful! So this facial treatment that helps replenish, restore and maintain lost hydration, improve the appearance of dehydration lines, rough texture, radiance, renew elasticity is exactly what anyone like me is looking for! My main concerns are fine lines, the beginnings of loss of firmness and some pigmentation mainly on my forehead.
A little background on SkinCeuticals. The brand was born from decades of skin cancer research that led them to pivotal breakthroughs and high performance products. Made in the USA, these clinical skincare is used by dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and medi-spas for daily homecare and to complement aesthetic procedures. They formulate to correct signs of aging, protect healthy skin, and prevent future damage.
For my treatment I had the pleasure of visiting Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in La Jolla, CA and working with an amazing medical aesthetician Farzaneh who analyzed my skin and provided me with so much insight and guidance on how to achieve my best skin ever! Cosmetic Laser Dermatology is very much thee expert dermatology center of San Diego and world renowned. The founder and Medical Director of Cosmetic Laser Dermatology is Mitchel Goldman M.D. a double-board certified dermatologist diplomat of cosmetic surgery, recognized by the American Board of Dermatology and the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. Clearly I was in great hands!
They offer a full range of cosmetic treatments that include:
- Laser treatments
- Chemical Peels
- Collagen Pin
One thing that most impressed me about this center was that not only do they provide some of the most state of the art dermatological procedures they also have an extensive clinical research department to ensure that they are using the best products on the market; case and point SkinCeuticals!
My facial was nothing short of thorough in examination and treatment addressing my main concerns; pigmentation and fine lines. Included in this facial is a Phyto Corrective Gel, a Micropeel and a Firming Masque to address these specific concerns and reverse the damage already done.
My facial was finished with my two new favorite products; Phloretin CF Antioxidant Serum and Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2. I loved my treatment and Fahrzanes suggestions so much that I am committed to using the regimen she recommended to improve my skin for the better.
