Green Cream High Potency Retinol
It’s a non-prescription retinol that is quite active and can give the same benefits to your skin as a prescription version with many fewer side effects, like peeling and irritation. See before and after photos. The results of using this brand can equal or surpass some prescription versions – and it’s less expensive (and is also available on Amazon) and can eventually or gradually be used multiple times daily even on the eyelids and lips.
Elta MD / Tizo
Some sunscreens contain chemicals that may cause a rash or a burning sensation on the face when a person is physically active and/or perspires a lot. Tizo and Elta are “non-chemical” sunscreens (“active” ingredients are zinc oxide and titanium) and are much less irritating on the face for most individuals.
Non-chemical sunscreens are also very appropriate for children and babies who have very sensitive skin.
Glyderm is an alfa hydroxyl cleanser which is great to use when taking off cosmetics. Patients love it! It doesn’t leave your face greasy or dry and does not clog pores like so many other cleansers do. The AHA’s seal in moisture while simultaneously compacting the outer-most layer of the skin. Honestly, it’s the only facial cleanser I use!
Latisse is a product that stimulates the growth of eyelashes. It was the first one to market and is an excellent product. Interestingly, one of the side effects of Latisse is that when it's used over time, it can actually shrink the skin of the upper and lower eyelids, and therefore tighten it. Almost like a natural eyelift! When used consistently it can even prevent bags under the eyes. It’s a win-win.
Vitamin C and E
Antioxidants in a closed stable delivery system that does not allow the antioxidants to become inactive. This product feels like satin and velvet when on your skin and is not greasy or oily.
Vitamin C can relieve any flaking or peeling that some people experience with topical retinoids while also delivering “active” or “educated” moisturizers which actually improves the skin texture and appearance.
