CO2Lift Black Body Mask Dr. JJ Wendel

With an overwhelming amount of skin care products available, many adults don’t know where to begin when starting a basic skin care routine. However, having great skin doesn’t have to be complicated. By incorporating our skin care basics into your routine, you can improve your complexion and start to truly love your skin.

Top Products to Add to Your Basic Skin Care Routine

Dr. Wendel’s office stocks exclusive medical-grade skin care with SPF, hydrating, and rejuvenating properties. We believe in the science behind the products that we recommend for our patients because they deliver effective, real results. Here are six of our can’t-live-without products for any skin type.

1. Dr. Wendel Koji Pads

Dr. Wendel Koji Pads are an all-time favorite product to achieve a healthy glow. These exfoliating pads contain properties to slough off dry skin and keep you glowing. They can also keep melasma at bay. Koji Pads can be used daily on the face and entire body to exfoliate and treat breakouts.

2. Revision Skincare Black Mask and CO2 Lift Mask

For an even smoother and more polished profile, try using Revision Skincare’s Pore Purifying Clay Mask once a week or before any special occasion.

3. SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator

It’s tough to beat a trio like SkinMedica’s HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator, TNS Essential Serum, and Total Defense + Repair Broad Spectrum Sunscreen. Together, these powerhouses can really remake a complexion. The HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator smooths fine lines and wrinkles while supporting intense hydration to improve skin tone and texture.

4. SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum

For those looking for a great serum, SkinMedica’s TNS essential serum is a fabulous multi-purpose product to treat signs of aging, texture, and even skin tone.

5. SkinMedica Total Defense + Repair Broad Spectrum Sunscreen

Wearing a daily moisturizer with SPF is one of the best things you can do for your skin, and we love SkinMedica’s Total Defense + Repair. This “superscreen” protects against harmful UV rays and infrared rays with anti-aging properties to improve fine lines and wrinkles.

6. Retinoid

Last but not least, using a retinoid helps to protect and renew the skin to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while also helping the skin become more resilient. SkinMedica carries a Retinol Complex in 0.25, 0.5, and 1.0 ounce concentrations for those new and seasoned to retinol products.

Non-Invasive Skin Treatments We Love

Through consultations at our office with Lori, Paige, and Emily, you will discover the amazing world of non-surgical skin procedures. We also consider these treatments to be skin care basics since they’re super popular and suitable for most people at some point in their skin care journey.

1. Botox Injections

Getting Botox injections regularly is one of our favorite preventative steps to keep wrinkles and lines from deepening. Many patients receive Botox injections to target signs of aging on the forehead, between the eyebrows, the sides of the nose, and to alleviate crow’s feet. Botox injections make you look like yourself, just younger, fresher, and more rested!

2. Microneedling with PRP

Microneedling with PRP is a safe, quick, non-invasive treatment that uses tiny needles to improve scarred, sun damaged or aging skin, as well as other skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation. It forces the body to produce collagen, and, as a result, patients notice a visible difference in the suppleness of their skin.

3. Dermaplaning

Say goodbye to dryness and breakouts with the combination of dermaplaning and Dr. Wendel’s Koji Pads, both of which exfoliate and refresh the skin. Through dermaplaning, our office uses a blade to remove dead skin cells and peach fuzz from the face. This procedure leaves patients with baby-smooth skin allowing for products to fully absorb and makeup to last longer.

4. Derma Rolling

Derma rolling is an at-home facial treatment that you can use between PRP with microneedling appointments. If you’re looking for the best derma roller, we love the MTS Roller™, which uses tiny needles to produce collagen and elastin. Also, our skin care experts can recommend a customized face routine with serums to use with your derma roller for maximum results.
