A New Start

It’s that time of year when we’d like to start fresh in many areas of our life: back to the gym, quitting smoking, a new diet, and of course, taking better care of our skin. SkinCareLab to the rescue with suggestions for the right products and treatments to jump start your skin into looking great.

One issue that we are often plagued with is discoloration and uneven skin tone: Korres’ natural skincare has created the Sugar Crystal Cream to help even out your complexion, improving tone and texture. For an additional boost, their Vitamin C enriched Wild Rose Brightening & Line Smoothing Face & Eye Serum will firm, tighten, and brighten the skin.

Lastly, make your New Year's resolution to religiously wear your daily sunscreen, so you can protect yourself from the harmful UV rays that can cause wrinkles, dark spots, and skin cancer. SkinCareLab's favorite is the La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios 50+ Fluide Extreme.

SkinCareLab's founder, dermatologist Dr Brad Katchen suggests taking advantage of the season with treatments that are prohibitive during the summer months when there is more sun exposure. The most requested procedure at the office is the Photofacial. The Intense Pulse Light can effectively eliminate skin's irregular discoloration, dark patches, or reddish veins that cross the nose and cheeks. In a few treatments, your skin can be remarkably clear. Another treatment that is getting a lot of attention is laser hair removal. To prep for the summer months, this laser can only be done when the skin is not tan.

2007 will certainly be a remarkable year. And we wish you the best in making your resolutions become a reality!
