SKIN CARE PRODUCTS & RECOMMEDATIONS FOR SPECIFIC SKIN CONCERNS

 
CUSTOMIZED SKIN CARE REGIMENS BASED ON YOUR SKIN TYPE

About Our Products

Dr. Aradhna Saxena and Dr. David Kasper at the Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute have researched numerous skin care products and are proud to offer comprehensive and efficacious product lines for skin care and rejuvenation. Our custom skin care line, SkinAesthetics MD, offers pharmaceutical quality ingredients with prescription-strength formulations not available over-the-counter at drug stores or department stores. Peer-reviewed studies have been performed on all of our products which are manufactured in an FDA-registered facility.

 

What is Your Skin Type?

The traditional definitions of skin type - dry, oily, and combination - are not specific enough to address the nuances of each person's skin. Founded by renowned dermatologist and skin care expert, Dr. Leslie Baumann, The Skin Type Solutions (STS) Skin Typing System allows us to categorize each patient's skin into 1 of 16 unique skin types. STS is the only patented scientific skin typing system in the industry.

Each skin type does best with a regimen that combines various safe and efficacious skincare brands to address your specific needs and aesthetic goals. All STS skincare products must undergo and pass a 4 to 6-month research approval process and clinical testing for your specific skin type before they are eligible to be incorporated into the Skin Type Solutions system.

All Regimens require Sunscreen and a Retinol Serum

All regimens require Sunscreen applied in the morning as the last applied product.  

We recommend you choose one of the following - these sunscreens are suited for all skin types: 

  • Sheer Physical Sunscreen SPF 50+: chemical-free sun block. Dr. Saxena's personal favorite!
  • EltaMD UV Clear SPF46:  chemical ingredients and blocking ingredients, light-weight and oil free. 
  • Tinted Physical Sunscreen SPF 50: chemical free sun block with a tint that makes skin glow
  • Advanced Anti-Photoaging Sunscreen SPF 50: chemical ingredients and blocking ingredients; easy to apply and colorless. 

Additionally, we recommend the Skin AestheticsMD Lip Treatment with SPF30 specifically for your lips. Lips are very sensitive to sun exposure, so need specific directed protection. 

 

Retinol is the only clinically proven anti-aging ingredient. It shrinks pore size, lightens dark spots, improves skin texture,  and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles over time. We recommend the Skin AestheticsMD Retinol 2x Smoothing Serum. If you have used Retinol products in the past without a problem, you can start with the Retinol 5x or 10x Smoothing Serum. We also recommend Skin AestheticsMD Retinol Eye Repair Cream for the lower eyelids as it works well on the more sensitive eyelid skin to help with dark circles and fine lines and wrinkles.

Additional Information Regarding Specific Concerns

Issues with the Skin Under your Eyes

If you have dark circles or fine lines & wrinkles on the skin under your eyes,  we recommend Skin AestheticsMD Retinol Eye Repair Cream as this product has been designed specifically for the more sensitive eyelid skin. Microneedling and chemical peels can also address these specific concerns. 

 

If you have puffiness, bags, or hollowness under your eyes, we recommend a consultation with Dr. Aradhna Saxena to discuss dermal fillers. Fillers such as Belotero and Restylane replace the volume loss to eliminate the step-off between the puffy lower eyelids and depressed cheeks.
