Skin Care Q&A

What is skin care?

Skin care refers to treatments, procedures, products, and habits that work to improve or preserve the health of your skin. Taking care of your skin helps ward off sun damage and other cosmetic concerns as well as certain skin diseases and conditions or their flare-ups. 

The team at Missouri Dermatology Laser and Vein Center knows a lot about skin care and the best practices for the health of your epidermis. They also offer a range of treatments in the office to care for your skin, such as a customizable HydraFacial®, chemical peels, and fractional laser resurfacing. 

Missouri Dermatology Laser and Vein Center teaches you about how your skin acts as a natural protective barrier between your organs and tissues and the elements. The team also tells you how to care for your skin and can recommend medical-grade skin care products to add to your home routine. 

Which skin care products should I use?

The Missouri Dermatology Laser and Vein Center team makes individualized recommendations for medical-grade skin care products that align with your skin’s needs. Medical-grade skin care products are stronger than the products you purchase at the drugstore and are chosen based on your skin type. 

In the office, you can purchase products from high-end brands like EltaMD®, skinbetter science®, and Le Mieux® such as:

  • Serums 
  • Moisturizers
  • Cleansers
  • Sunscreens
  • Acne treatments

The team helps you develop a skin care routine you can count on to avoid issues like irritation, dryness, and oiliness. 

How should I take care of my skin at home?

Aside from using products appropriate for your skin type, there are numerous steps you can take at home to keep your skin looking and feeling its best. The team at Missouri Dermatology Laser and Vein Center offers helpful tips to keep in mind, such as:

  • Protecting your skin from sun exposure
  • Avoiding tanning beds and other artificial ultraviolet (UV) light sources
  • Eating a nutrient-rich diet
  • Drinking plenty of water
  • Avoiding overwashing your skin
  • Avoiding harsh chemicals directly on your skin
  • Finding a healthy outlet for stress
  • Avoiding smoking

You can also get recommendations specific to your lifestyle after discussing your skin concerns during a skin care consultation at Missouri Dermatology Laser and Vein Center.
