Skin Care with Dr. Shatkin Jr. March 17th 2008

Proper skin care is essential to maintain a youthful look. Excessive sun exposure and smoking can create premature aging as seen with loss of elasticity of the skin, thinning of the top layer (epidermis) and loss of the organization of the collagen layer of the deeper part of the skin. I compare good skin care to brushing your teeth daily, eating good food and exercising regularly. You need to get into healthy routines and not expect to just go in once a year to get your skin buffed or teeth cleaned. Proper cleansing, exfoliation, moisturizing and sun protection are essential.

    I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

    I have used these current machines at the salon, is there a difference? I love the treatment.

    Thanks for the comments. The facials performed at our centre use Iontophoresis and Sonophoresis to allow the products to penetrate to the deeper layers in higher concentration than just with applying it topically. The results last longer too!
