anti-aging skin care
Did you know we carry a range of anti-aging skin care products in our office? Contact us to learn more about our customizable anti-aging skin care routines and product selection.
A serious anti-aging skin care routine should include a variety of ingredients instead of relying on a single solution. Some of the key ingredients are:
- sunscreen (wear every single day, rain or shine),
- exfoliants (especially retinoids and glycolic acid),
- antioxidants (such as vitamin C and green tea), and
- growth factors (proteins that are beneficial to skin).
An ideal anti-aging skin care routine will incorporate many or all of these ingredients. We have carefully selected medical-grade skin care products available for each ingredient, and we offer these for sale in our office for your convenience. Some treatments require a prescription. Contact us for more information.
Sunscreen protects skin from future damage by blocking UVA and UVB rays that cause photoaging, sunburn, and skin cancer. Use at least SPF 30 and 5% zinc oxide every day. We offer a selection of effective, cosmetically elegant sunscreens by EltaMD, SkinCeuticals, Replenix, and Suntegrity. We can help you choose a sunscreen that you will love to wear everyday.
Retinoids (vitamin A) and glycolic acid (an alpha hydroxy acid) increase cell turnover, giving your skin a glow and reducing wrinkles. They help build collagen and treat a variety of photoaging symptoms. We carry ReFissa Tretinoin Cream 0.05%, one of Dr. Jordan's favorite prescription retinoids for anti-aging. We also carry glycolic acid products for the face and body by Glycolix Elite.
Vitamin C and green tea antioxidants protect the skin from free radical damage due to sun and environmental stresses. Daily use can help reverse and prevent damage. Antioxidants complement sunscreen and retinoid treatments well. We offer a selection of antioxidants from SkinCeuticals and Replenix.
Growth factors are proteins that can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone and texture, and enhance the appearance of skin firmness. Growth factors boost cell’s ability to repair and revitalize skin. We carry an excellent moisturizer and eye cream by NeoCutis that are both full of growth factors.
cleansers & moisturizers
A good cleanser and moisturizer can make a huge difference in an anti-aging routine! We carry Dr. Jordan's favorite facial cleanser from EltaMD, as well as an excellent hydrating serum from SkinCeuticals. Some of our antioxidant and growth factor treatments double as moisturizers, too!
konjac facial sponges
We carry the Dew Puff line of Asian konjac sponges, which work beautifully in combination with Dr. Jordan’s favorite EltaMD Cleanser. Dew Puff facial cleansing sponges are 100% natural plant based cleansing and exfoliating tools. Dew Puff has only one ingredient – konjac root – also known as elephant yam or kon-nyaku in Japanese. When hydrated, these natural sponges become exceptionally soft, yet gently exfoliating, while creating a perfect pH balance on the surface of the skin. Regular use brightens and evens your skin tone without irritation. We find that these sponges exfoliate better than fingertips alone, yet are more gentle on skin than harsh scrubs, washcloths, or sonic cleansing brushes. They are ideal for daily exfoliating.
