Skincare Awareness Month – Why What You Do for Your Skin at Home Matters

At CEC we specialize in helping individuals achieve healthy, radiant, youthful looking skin. But even with our team’s best efforts and industry-leading services, your skin can’t look it’s best without a dedicated skincare routine that takes place outside of our office. Taking care of our skin isn’t a luxury, it’s an important investment in our overall wellbeing and our appearance.

A healthy skincare routine plays a crucial role in preventing and addressing issues such as sunspots, wrinkles, fine lines and other common signs of aging. Sun exposure, pollutants and the natural aging process can take a toll on your skin. Our skin rejuvenation services are designed to combat these unwanted signs of aging, but a consistent at-home skincare regimen that includes sun protection, hydrating moisturizers, antioxidant-rich products and other science-backed treatments, can help significantly enhance the success of our services —and length of your results.

How do skincare products impact my treatments and services?

When you’ve made the decision to enhance your appearance through in-office treatments, you’ve taken a major step toward reaching your aesthetics goals. These treatments deliver beautiful, natural results, but their full potential can only be realized when coupled with a dedicated skincare regimen. By prioritizing skin health, you not only enhance your skin’s texture and radiance but also promote a more youthful, vibrant and refreshed appearance. For example:

  • Botox: Botox and other wrinkle injection treatments work by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines, leaving you with a smoother, youthful look. However, for long-lasting and enhanced results, it’s essential to complement tox treatments with skincare that promotes overall skin health and hydration. A skincare regimen featuring antioxidants, peptides and moisturizers can nourish and hydrate your skin, ensuring it remains supple and radiant.
  • IPL (Intense Pulsed Light): IPL is highly effective for addressing a range of skin concerns, including sunspots, redness and uneven pigmentation. This non-invasive technology delivers precise bursts of light energy to target and eliminate specific skin imperfections, leaving you with a younger looking, more even complexion. But after your IPL session, it’s crucial to nurture your skin to enhance and maintain the results. Our skincare experts can recommend products that complement IPL by promoting overall skin health, reducing inflammation and protecting skin that may be temporarily extra sensitive to harmful UV damage. A gentle moisturizer, cleanser and SPF can go miles in maximizing your results. Together, IPL and a tailored skincare regimen can help you achieve long-lasting radiance and even-toned skin.
  • PicoWay: This treatment leverages high-power picosecond laser beam and ultra-short pulses to transform your skin from the inside out. This technology is exceptionally effective in reducing the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles and dark spots, as well as tattoos. Proper skin hydration is key following your PicoWay treatment, delivering a healthy balance to replenish any dryness in the treated area. Selecting skincare products enriched with ingredients like vitamins C and E can accelerate the healing process, further stimulate collagen synthesis, and improve the texture and firmness of your skin post-treatment.
  • VirtueRF: The VirtueRF is a cutting-edge skin rejuvenation treatment that addresses various concerns, from texture irregularities to skin tightening. This non-invasive procedure enhances your skin’s natural beauty and vitality. To support the post-treatment healing process and maximize your results, a gentle cleanser, skincare products enriched with vitamins C and E, as well as growth factors, can accelerate tissue repair and collagen synthesis, ensuring your skin looks its absolute best. A powerful SPF is also your best friend following VirtueRF treatments (and always!)

These are just a few of the leading skin rejuvenation services we offer – and our expert team can help you design a skincare regimen that is a perfect complement to your skin type and the services and treatments you have gotten with us.

The Power of Consistency

But remember, your skincare journey is not a one-time endeavor—it’s a commitment to ongoing care. In-office treatments can enhance your appearance in beautiful, natural ways, but they are only the beginning of your transformation. Regular skincare maintenance is key to preserving those results, ensuring they last longer and to enhance your appearance over time.

A Shield Against Time: SPF Protection

No skincare routine is complete without one essential step: sun protection. While a dose of sunshine can feel like nature’s medicine, when left unprotected, the sun’s rays can wreak havoc on both your appearance and your health. By incorporating a high-quality, broad-spectrum sunscreen into your daily routine, you create a protective shield against premature aging and skin damage.
