Most of us have seen the results of a fresh Botox®, Jeuveau™, or Dysport® treatment, or appreciated the contour we experience after a filler treatment in the cheeks or jawline. What happens in between your injectables – how you take care of your now refreshed and lifted face – is as important.
Dr. Saluja affirms injectables aren’t a substitute for good skincare nor are they a substitute for firming and tightening complexion procedures. These complement each other.
We offer multiple curated skincare lines and products which our experts, Dr. Saluja & Dr. Novo, as well as our medical aestheticians, recommend as part of a personalized skincare regimen for each patient. There is proven data that your skin filler treatment will be enhanced when using specific skincare technology at home. For example, SkinMedica HA5® Rejuvenating Hydrator delivers five forms of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) into your skin to complement the HA fillers that are being placed. A bonus of HA5 is it will likely lengthen the duration of your fillers. Don’t forget to apply the HA5® lip system to your newly injected, plumper lips to enhance their longevity as well!
Sculptra® and ALASTIN Skincare®
Another great power couple is Sculptra® filler and the ALASTIN Skincare® line with TriHex technology. Sculptra® is a long-lasting voluminous filler that works by stimulating the production of your own collagen, thus over time restoring fullness and loss of volume. ALASTIN Skincare® has an amazing patented TriHex technology that works by removing unhealthy, clumpy collagen and elastin. Therefore, combining your Sculptra® treatment with ALASTIN Skincare® is a no-brainer. One is attacking and removing old, clumpy collagen while Sculptra® is stimulating the production of new collagen. Your face will look softer, fresher, and your investment will go a long way!
Enhance with Vivace™
Firming and tightening procedures should also be part of your skincare journey. Michelle, our experienced medical aesthetician highly recommends Vivace™ RadioFrequency microneedling (RFMN), which tightens and improves skin tone and texture. Dr. Saluja says, “Pairing Vivace™ with injectables is going to give an enhanced anti-aging effect. There is no downtime and no excuse! I love to treat our patients.”
Another patient favorite is the Clarisonic® Mia Smart Uplift, which Dr. Saluja suggests using nightly to lessen facial and neck sagging, improve radiance and increase smoothness.
Take Care of Those Sunspots
Pigmentation is an important issue that we like to address. No one is going to notice the injectables if your skin is covered with sunspots. These develop over time with living on or near the beach – our patients from Cocoa Beach, Satellite Beach, Indian Harbour Beach, Indialantic and Melbourne Beach know who they are! A clear complexion is the first step to your best skin. Dr. Novo and Beth Perry, PA have designed a customizable 90 Days to Your Best Skin Bootcamp that includes peels, IPL®, lasers, and medical-grade skincare.
As part of your 90 day plan, Dr. Novo’s favorite laser treatment is fractional CO2 laser resurfacing for anti-aging, pigmentation, and texture improvement. The light that penetrates through the epidermis introduces heat into the sub-dermal layers of the skin. This heat causes skin cells to reproduce more rapidly to heal the injury thus stimulating collagen, softening wrinkles, and reducing surface pigmentation resulting in firmer, tighter and clearer skin.
Finally, a staff favorite is HydraFacial®. Our deluxe HydraFacial® deeply cleanses your pores at the same time as it infuses hydrating serums – without recovery period or pain. There is no better way to feature your fresh injectable treatment than with a glowing complexion!
