For Minneapolis Skin Care Secrets, Look No Further!

Claris Eye Care & Surgery of Minneapolis is now providing a medically supervised skin care regimen for our patients.

Your skin condition has many components, such as color and texture. As we age, collagen production diminishes, skin thins, and elasticity decreases causing facial sagging, fine lines and wrinkles.  Rough, dry or oily skin, abnormal skin pigmentation, or fine wrinkles can give you a tired or aged look. Claris Eye Care & Surgery can improve rough skin texture and fine wrinkles with chemical peels, while dry or oily skin and irregular skin coloration can be improved with the prescription strength skin regimen of SkinMedica®, SkinMedica® advanced skin care products are scientifically formulated and clinically tested to rejuvenate skin and help rekindle your skin’s youthful appearance, so you can look and feel great.

SkinMedica® Products

SkinMedica® medical grade skin care products are the result of almost two decades of research and clinical experience.  With scientifically proven ingredients such as growth factors, retinoic and alpha hydroxy acids, and antioxidants, they can enhance the natural appearance of your skin and help to prevent free radical damage.

Chemical and illuminating peels are used to refresh skin texture, reduce fine lines, tighten and improve skin texture. They are also able to diminish skin discoloration, such as sunspots, age spots, and melasma. Mild scarring and certain types of acne can also be treated with chemical peels. During these treatments, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, removing old cells and revealing new cells that form a smoother, less wrinkled, and more even skin tone.

In the end, vanity is really a good thing: if you are worried about your appearance, then you are probably motivated to eat correctly, maintain a good body weight, exercise, and get enough sleep. Remember, your appearance reflects what’s happening on the inside as well, so if you’re not taking care of yourself – if you’re not getting enough sleep, eating poorly, and not exercising, then you will probably notice negative, visible changes in your appearance.
