Conventional skin care remedies may fail to provide you with the results you desire, leaving you frustrated and irritated. Don’t give up hope, when there is a variety of medical skin care options available to you by visiting Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center in Green, or Beachwood OH. If you live near Canton, Cleveland or Akron, it could be well worth your time to stop in.
Finding the right skin care treatment and products can be difficult. Retail stores and manufacturers advertise countless products that claim to ‘turn back the clock” or are better than surgery. Internet ads, billboards, women’s magazines, TV commercials and infomercials are filled with creams and lotions that promise to make you look years younger.
Are These Products Effective?
The simple answer is usually not. Skin is a complex organ (the largest in the human body). Therefore, it requires a clear understanding of each individual’s skin type, concerns, and goals to choose the right products or treatments. This is why a physician-directed medical skin care program is important.
What Is Medical Skin Care?
Physician or medical skin care refers to treatments, medications, and/or topical products that only a physician or licensed agent may prescribe or perform. These include chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and prescription topical or oral medications such as retinoic acid (Retin-A) or hydroquinone. The products may include ingredients that are also in retail brands, but at concentrations that are more effective.
Dr. Carp and his aestheticians will carefully review your skin history and concerns. You will then receive a personalized skin care program, which may include topical products and in-office treatments and facials.
Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center proudly carries ZO Medical from Dr. Obagi and Lexli® Skin Care.
Lexli® Skincare & the Power of Aloe Vera
Dr. Ahmed Abdullah founded Lexli® Skincare products. He is a board-certified plastic surgeon and aloe researcher. Lexli® provides their customers with skin care products that help individuals to have younger looking, healthier skin. All of their products contain pharmaceutical-grade, certified organic aloe vera as their main ingredient. These product formulations form the basis for all of the Lexli® Skincare Collection. Their products include other natural ingredients such as masking agents, botanicals and protectants, and pH balanced humectants that help the skin to function at its best.
Why Aloe Vera?
Every skin care product begins with a base. Most of the skin care products available today use water as their base and then other ingredients are added. The issue with making skin care products in this way is that skin cannot absorb water. However, it can absorb aloe vera. That is why all of the products produced by Lexli® use 100 percent aloe vera. Aloe vera penetrates skin tissue and helps the skin to heal. It also protects damaged skin, and it is naturally anti-inflammatory.
The Lexli® System: As Easy as 1-2-3-4
The Lexli® system is a four-step method that helps customers have radiant, healthy, and younger-looking skin. They believe that an effective skin care regimen should be simple. They have added an additional step intended to nurture the skin with special needs. This can help individuals who are dealing with acne, have hyperpigmented skin, or who are dealing with aging. Using these steps, we will help you find a product right for your skin type.
For more than 30 years, Dr. Zein Obagi has defined the concept of skin health and has encouraged skin care treatments and programs that can help his patients have truly healthy and beautiful skin. With the introduction of ZO Medical products, Dr. Zein Obagi’s skin care products are available for patients who would like to improve the appearance of their skin.
