Youth: Guidance & Care

Younger patients and teens, for instance, might need general guidance on how to care for their skin, including how to wash their faces and how frequently to do so, choice of non-drying or medicated cleansers, and in what order to apply prescription acne medications, moisturizer, and/or sunscreen.

Bring in your own skincare products and our doctors will help you discover which are really doing their best for you, and what you might be missing in your routine.

Our skin care specialist and consultant work under the supervision of our board certified dermatologists so that our patients can receive coordinated, comprehensive skin care. We offer the most current and cutting-edge dermatology treatments, services, and products.

We believe in creating a personalized skin care regimen with products that provide the best benefits for the health of your skin and, when used properly, can minimize your risk of skin cancers. We offer complimentary skin care consultations to determine which treatments and products can benefit you.

We also do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach. Skin is constantly changing, and because of differences in genetics and environmental exposure, everyone’s skin is different. That means everyone’s skin has unique needs. Our experienced professionals will help determine which combination of treatments and high-quality, professional-grade products will best enhance the health and beauty of your skin.

A cookie cutter approach to skin care does not benefit patients, because each person has unique needs that deserve a customized approach. Common factors that influence a skin care plan include:

  • allergies
  • sensitivity to certain ingredients in products
  • special needs (acne, eczema, and other conditions)
  • an individual's medical history
  • personal values that determine which products to use

The team of doctors at Advanced Dermatology is trained to assess your specific needs in relation to your skin, starting with a consultation to determine the current state of the skin, your health and medical goals, personal preferences, and more.

From a home skin care perspective, the Advanced Dermatology team encourages everyone to pay careful attention to the active ingredients in the products they are using—with particular care given to multiple products with the same active ingredient. Too much of one ingredient can be “overdoing” it in your skin, while the lack of other vital components can keep needs from being met.

To that end, you are encouraged to come to your consultation armed with the products you use for your regular skin care regimen. Being able to see what’s regularly applied gives your doctor the opportunity to explain which products are helping the most, which products might not be as effective as hoped, and how to best coordinate a plan to maximize results.

Some patients wonder about the difference between the products we recommend, the products available at drugstores, and high-end department store products. Know that many products on the shelves contain only minimal amounts of the ingredients you may be buying them for, while designer-brand products come with a cost to cover their name and luxury packaging—not just the value of the contents.

The Advanced Dermatology & Skin Care team cuts through the hype to give you solid information about what works, what doesn’t, and how to get the most skin care power for your time, effort, and money.
