Skin Care in New Jersey
While plastic surgery and spa treatments can do wonders for stimulating a healthy, youthful appearance, their effects will fade quickly if they are not maintained at-home.
Obtaining healthy, glowing skin is a process that doesn’t stop at our doors; instead, it requires diligent daily effort. This includes using high-quality skin care products. At True Beauty Med Spa, we take pride in offering the finest products and services that have been personally tested and recommended by Dr. Beverly Friedlander and her staff of trained aestheticians.Have a Question
Why is Skin Care so important?
Is Skin Care the secret to looking young?
Our skin is our largest organ, and it’s truly amazing in its strength and resilience. Sadly, it will not maintain its health on its own. In fact, the skin is one of our neediest organs, requiring constant care and attentiveness to keep it at its highest level of health.
Maintaining good skin health is essential to a youthful appearance, and as you age, this feat becomes more difficult. From the young age of 20, our skin starts the process that many people consider “aging.” It is then when our bodies start to produce less collagen—1 percent less each year. Since collagen is the protein responsible for skin health, function, and support, its reduced production starts to show in the way of fine lines, wrinkles, and dull, lackluster skin.
While there is no way to prevent this from occurring, you can help to slow down the process by practicing good skin care habits with quality products at an early age. These products can also help stave off some of our environment’s damaging effects and stressful lifestyles.
Which Skin Care products are best for me?
True Beauty Med Spa offers a variety of top-of-the-line skin care products for all skin types and ages. To determine the correct products for you, our professionals will perform a comprehensive skin evaluation with a VISIA skin analysis. This revolutionary technology allows us to see what is going on with your skin beneath the surface, from the extent of sun damage to the effects of pollution.
This analysis will allow our aestheticians to recommend a specific and effective home care program, consisting of the finest skin care products from some of the industry’s leading brands.
How do your skin needs differ by age?
The proper skin care routine varies just as much by age as it does skin type and lifestyle.
When you are young, a cleanser and a sunscreen are all you need to maintain healthy skin. During adolescence, changing hormones produce new oils, making your skin prone to breakouts and acne. Once you reach your late 20s and 30s, your skin care needs to expand to cleansers, toners, moisturizers, and sunscreen.
As you age, you will likely find that more products are required to target specific concerns and sensitivities. There is no single cream or lotion that can address all of your skin’s needs in one. Therefore, a carefully curated collection of products must be combined to maintain optimal skin health.

SkinCeuticals Skin Care
SkinCeuticals is a leading industry brand that makes the award-winning anti-oxidant-CE Ferulic (Vitamin C and E + Ferulic blend) formula. Use of CE Ferulic results in visible anti-aging benefits, improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles, increasing firmness, and brightening the skin’s complexion. This serum, awarded “Best of Beauty” and “Editor’s Choice” by Allure Magazine, can be added as a complement to any skin care regimen. Other products we love include Phloretin CF—an alternative to CE Ferulic for those with oily skin—the Phyto Corrective Gel and the B5 Hydrating Gel. The B5 Gel is an oil-free moisturizer that combines Vitamin B5 with HA’s and is ideal for acne-prone skin. It will hydrate the skin without clogging the pores.
eltaMD Skin Care
EltaMD® skin care products can be used by everyone and are especially well-suited for those with sensitive skin or those wanting additional assistance post-procedure.
These sunscreens are formulated using transparent zinc oxide. They are non-comedogenic (meaning that they don’t clog the pores), sensitivity-free, fragrance-free, and paraben-free, and can be used after any procedure. They come in tinted and non-tinted formulations.
All EltaMD® sunscreens are broad-spectrum, meaning they protect against UVA and UVB wavelengths—the wavelengths that commonly lead to sunburns and premature aging. We also recommend the EltaMD® skin balm to protect and help restore the protective function of the skin after resurfacing procedures.
True Beauty Med Spa has recently added NeoCutis to its offerings. NeoCutis was founded on the basis of extensive research surrounding wound care. Scientists found that “older skin” acts more like “wounded skin” in that it needs stimulation of elements to regenerate and restore key building blocks of tissue—namely collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid.
All NeoCutis products are restorative and are safe on all skin types. They hydrate the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We, at True Beauty Med Spa, have selected several NeoCutis products which consistently outperform the competition and can safely be combined with other products to achieve exemplary results. Bio Creme—containing anti-aging growth factors—safely soothes the skin and restores moisture after procedures. Lumiere—specially formulated for use on the delicate under eye skin—uses growth factors to target and improve fine lines, pigment and puffiness. Hyalis is an intense hydrating cream which contains five different HA’s to promote soft skin and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Journee’ is a powerful day cream containing SPF; this is an ideal product for younger skin as it both prevents damage and restores skin function.
iS Clinical combines traditional botanical medicine with advanced scientific formulation. Using botanicals—called extremozymes—which assist in survival and adaptability of plants in extreme environments, iS clinical has pioneered safe simple solutions for all skin care concerns. These results-driven products are ideal for patients desiring natural solutions for their skin concerns. We also love the Active Serum and the ProHeal. The Active Serum is a powerful botanical that leaves the skin soft and smooth. It can be used for all ages and skin types and is safe during pregnancy. Pro Heal—also a botanical—uses a combination of plant based products to reduce redness and inflammation in the skin. Used for the treatment of Rosacea, these products are safe on all skin types.
Sara Happ Lip Scrub and Color
This fun group of products help create the luscious lips that we all crave. These can be used before or after your lip enhancement to exfoliate, hydrate, and color dry, flaky lips. Sara Happ Lip Scrub and Color do not contain parabens, so they are not drying, and they make great gifts or stocking stuffers.
Jane Iredale Coverup
Post-operative bruising is a common concern for our surgery patients. This is why we are proud to offer Jane Iredale Mineral Cover-up. This makeup product will temporarily blend and cover any bruising or pigmentation after a surgical (or non-surgical) procedure. Since we are not a day spa, we do not offer makeup; however, our aestheticians will be pleased to discuss the benefits of different makeup products.
When should I use the Skin Care products offered at True Beauty Med Spa?
Skin care with quality products is necessary for any person who wishes to maintain optimal skin health. The need for quality skin care increases for those who desire to prolong their cosmetic treatment results, whether non-surgical or surgical.
It is important to use skin care after:
- Injectable treatments that reduce wrinkles (neuromodulators and dermal fillers) or restore volume (dermal fillers)
- Microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, or chemical peels that exfoliate the skin
- Morpheus8 ( a hybrid procedure using radiofrequency with microneedling), Forma (radiofrequency) and Ultherapy® (ultrasound) which stimulate new collagen
- Facial surgeries, such as facelift surgery, neck lift surgery, brow lift surgery, or eyelid surgery.
Are there any risks associated with Skin Care?
Since skin care products are made up of many ingredients, there is a possibility of sensitivity to them, or, rarely, an allergic reaction. Inform the aestheticians at True Beauty Med Spa of any known allergies, so that they can assist you in finding the best products for your skin needs.
When will I see my Skin Care results?
Even the best skin care products in the world cannot produce noticeable results overnight. You will gradually see the improvement in your skin tone and texture over time, which will be maintained for the duration that you use the products.
Skin care cannot arrest the aging process, but it can help to maintain lasting skin health.
