Our favorite season has finally arrived! With its changing leaves and festive decorations, autumn is so beautiful. Fall is such a perfect time to stop and take stock of changes in our skin. After being outdoors all summer, it’s likely to see unevenness as well as traces of sun damage and fine lines – even if we’re careful and apply sunscreen liberally. Thankfully, we know just the procedures and products that can help us bring our skin back to its youthful, sunspot-free glory!
At Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery, we stay up-to-date on all the latest developments in advanced skincare. From Botox® treatments to medical-grade skin care products, we know that everyone’s beauty routine looks different. We asked our team about their favorite products that help them look well-rested, youthful, and more like the self they love seeing in the mirror.
One great tool our team loves is VISIA skin analysis. VISIA technology quantifies all the little things we notice as we age. It measures UV damage, texture, oil, and bacteria levels, among other things. Then, the system scores your skin, and the percentage lets you know how you compare to others in your age range. This analysis is a great option for those looking to learn more about their skin and identify areas of improvement.
“Botox is certainly a beauty treatment that has stayed on trend for years now,” says Certified Aesthetic Laser Operator Jill Robbins. “This is [a cosmetic treatment] that I consistently stick with.” Team members Paige Hastings, Eva Lara, and Amanda Troester all agree that Botox is one of the treatments that has helped them improve their self-confidence. Why is Botox so effective? Botox injections prevent the contraction of muscles, causing them to relax and soften. Relaxing the muscles underneath the skin helps to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Sometimes, sun damage shows up in the form of brown spots and dull skin. If that’s the case, then adding Dr. Wendel’s skin care products to your daily routine can help you significantly. Eva and Paige swear by SkinMedica® Lytera 2.0, a pigment-correcting serum that works to improve overall skin tone and texture. It’s highly recommended by plastic surgeons and dermatologists alike.
Eva says, “I have a lot of brown spots from the sun and not using sunscreen. Lytera has definitely been a life-changer!” Along with Lytera, Paige and Penny Bowman like to use Dr. Wendel’s Koji Pads to lighten and improve the overall texture of their skin. “I can’t live without my Koji Pads!” Penny exclaims. “I always get compliments on my skin when using them.”
This fall, we know how important it is to take care of the skin and reverse summer damage. We’re getting Botox injections and incorporating Dr. Wendel’s skin care products in our daily routine for healthy, vibrant, rejuvenated skin. Are you ready to join us?
