Q A Your Skinformation Q A Lackluster skin is the usually the result of not only dryness, but also chronic sun damage. Exfoliating regularly is key to eliminating dullness; the Clarisonic is a quick and easy way to do this. Also use a power moisturizer such as Body Booster and products made specifically to smooth and rejuvenate body skin, such as SkinCeuticals Body Retexturing Treatment. SkinCeuticals Body Retexturing Treatment $60 Body Booster $75 Clarisonic $199 The skin on my arms and legs looks dull and dry, even though I moisturize it every day. Do you have any suggestions to help this? I had Botox done for the creases across my forehead, but it didn’t help them much. A friend told me there is a new type of injection that would help; can you tell me about that? Belotero is the treatment that your friend had in mind. It is an FDA-approved product that can be used to fill in superficial lines such as forehead creases, as well as fine lines around the eyes and lips, whereas other fillers can look unnatural in these delicate areas. For many patients, we recommend combining Botox or Dysport with Belotero for maximum improvement. Q A Before I have a couple of big social events coming up, and I want to look great for them, but I can’t do treatments that might cause bruising or visible healing. Is there anything like this that would help with wrinkles? Yes, one of our most popular procedures is the Intraceuticals Oxygen Infusion Facial. Why do patients love it? They get painless plumping and smoothing that happens immediately and lasts for up to a week. It’s even better when combined with microdermabrasion, and results last even longer if After the treatment is repeated and paired with the Intraceuticals products for home use.
