Skin Care Q & A

Why is skin care so important?

With so much focus on the appearance of your skin, it's easy to overlook the fact that your skin is also your body's largest organ. Taking good care of that organ is critical to overall health and wellness.

The outermost layer of your skin is your epidermis and protects against germs, the elements, and environmental hazards. This external layer of cells also produces the melanin that protects from the sun’s ultraviolet rays.

Your skin is continuously renewing and has an impressive ability to heal itself. Taking good care of your skin can preserve elasticity, avoid wrinkles, and help remove toxins from your body.

What are some basic skin care products?

Each individual has a unique set of skin care needs, but there are some basics that almost everyone should use. Fortunately, advancements in skin care make it possible to find formulations for virtually every skin type.

Most men and women need a simple, gentle cleanser to remove dirt, sweat, oil, and makeup at the end of each day. Some cleansers include ingredients to address acne, dry skin, or wrinkles.

Sunscreen is another important basic. Be sure to choose a sunscreen that offers a high SPF, and make it part of your daily skin care routine.

Moisturizer is also essential--helping restore proper moisture levels. Be sure to choose a high-quality moisturizer that is formulated for your skin type and any specific needs.  

Why choose skin care products from a doctor?

The primary benefit is the opportunity to have a comprehensive skin evaluation. Dr. Kipervas takes the time to check the condition of your skin and discuss your skin care goals before recommending a skin care routine.

You might choose treatment options for rosacea, acne, wrinkles, or other signs of aging. If so, you may need unique products geared toward those issues.

Dr. Kipervas also has the knowledge and experience to select the very best skin care options from the dizzying array of choices. When you turn to her for your skin care needs, you do so in the knowledge that she has already done the research for you, and that you are getting the very best value for your hard-earned dollars.
