Remember that dewy skin of your youth? Childhood skin looks tight and toned because of active collagen production in the dermis of the skin. This slows steadily as we get older, eventually causing the skin to grow slack and fine lines and wrinkles to appear. Choosing the most effective treatment plan from all the current available options can be confusing. But if a more youthful appearance is your goal then it's worth knowing that true anti-aging treatments must stimulate collagen production in order to be effective. Facial skin resurfacing is the quickest way to achieve a collagen boost.
It's Pre-Party Season - Time to Pre-pare
As the party season approaches it's time to indulge in some pre-party skin rejuvenation.
Many imperfections of the skin are as a result of sun damage or aging that leaves the skin dull, wrinkled and patchy.
A chemical peel willl dramatically improve the appearance effectively reducing irregular pigmentation and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
But many people don't want to go through the downtime of a traditional chemical peel, especially around the holidays, as it penetrates the lower layer of the dermis and takes approximately 7 to 10 days shed the upper layers of the skin. That's why at Institut' DERMed we created The Flash Peel.
While most of us are very aware of the Pumpkin during Fall festivals and as a winter soup or a Thanksgiving dessert, the benefits of a pumpkin enzyme peel for your skin year round is often overlooked. Packed full of vitamins and anti-oxidants, pumpkin enzymes are excellent to help soften the hard sebum and dead skin cells that build up in the hair follicle and trap dirt and oil.
Did you know that the décolleté is often one of the first areas on the body to show signs of aging? This skin on the body needs tender loving care, as it is thinner, delicate and easily damaged through sun exposure. Gravity contributes to loose, sagging skin developing in the chest area as well as crepey lines and wrinkling. It is important to both encourage skin cell turnover as well as keep the skin hydrated in this area.

Acneic skin disorders occur as the result of excessive sebum or oil production that mix with keratonized dead skin cells inside the hair follicle. This creates a micro plug or comedone. There are a variety of lesions that appear as blackheads, pimples, pustutles, papules, cysts, and nodules. They can appear on the face, chest, and back. There is a classification for lesions that helps us discern the severity of acneic skin conditions presented by Dr. Kligman. He gives us the grades of acne 1- 4.
