Skin Care in New Jersey

While 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 in New Jersey skin care is a subject we take great pride in mastering. We offer what we consider to be the finest medical-grade skin care products and services, as they've been personally tested by Dr. Beverly Friedlander and her staff of trained aestheticians.

Why is Skin Care So Important?

Board Certified Female Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Beverly Friedlander

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. When it comes to difficult decision-making and trial-and-error in choosing products for skin care New Jersey patients can instead turn to True Beauty for expert solutions — our professionals at True Beauty 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 skin care program, consisting of the finest medical-grade 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 by 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.

Dr. Beverly Friedlander and her team of skilled and experienced skin care specialists are here to help you nourish, protect, and correct your skin so you can achieve your healthiest, most beautifully luminous, and youthful complexion. We know that the secret to flawless skin is precision-based customization and taking a personalized approach to treating each patient’s unique concerns accordingly.

Elta MD, New Jersey skincare products

EltaMD Skin Care

EltaMD can be used by everyone and are especially well-suited skin care products 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.

Additional Reading

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.

iS Clinical products for skin care in New Jersey

iS Clinical

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.

Cosmetics and Makeup

Choosing over-the-counter cosmetics may be cost-effective, but can lead to issues like clogged pores and irritated skin. We recommend exploring more skin-friendly, hypoallergenic options. Available at specialty stores like Sephora and Ulta, these products are often developed for specific skin types or issues and can promote healthier skin. Makeup products that are gentler and use natural ingredients can help reduce breakouts and irritation to improve tone and texture, and products with added skincare benefits like hydration or SPF protection can help maintain your skin’s well-being while enhancing your beauty. Long term use can lead to using less product in the future, so while the costs up front may seem steep, they are definitely worth the investment.

Are There any Risks Associated with Skin Care?

True Beauty Med Spa

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?

Med Spa Founder, Dr. Beverly Friedlander

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.

How Can I Achieve the Best Skin Care Results?

The first step to getting the most from your skin care routine is to consult with a qualified professional to determine the best formulas for your skin’s needs. Once you have curated your ideal regimen, it is crucial that you stick with it. Skin care results are cumulative and require consistency. This means that the earlier you begin caring for your skin, the more dramatic the effects of your daily regimen will be over time.

You will also want to pay attention to the frequency and time at which you should apply each product. For example, products may be recommended for weekly, daily, twice daily, or as-needed use, and some may be contraindicated for use after certain skin treatments.

Certain treatments may also enhance the power of your skin care routine. It’s no secret that in-office treatments can offer more immediate improvements, but they can also allow your topical treatments to penetrate deeper or target fresh, new skin cells for better results. Microneedling is one such treatment. Microchannels created during this non-surgical, minimal-downtime procedure allow skin care products to reach beneath your skin’s surface while also stimulating your body’s natural collagen production.

Skin Care
Frequently Asked Questions

Medical-grade skin care products undergo rigorous testing, adhering to stringent safety standards and delivering optimally beneficial results. However, as with any medical-grade treatment, it is important to be mindful of any sensitivities or allergies you may have to any ingredients, as medical-grade products feature greater potency than non-medical-grade products.

Most patients enjoy the benefits of medical-grade skin care without side effects. The risk of side effects depends on your unique body chemistry and sensitivities. If you have a history of skin allergies or sensitivities, it is important to consult with your doctor to ensure the highest level of safety and efficacy.

The majority of non-prescription skin care items are generally considered safe to use while pregnant. However, it’s advisable to avoid products that have retinoids, hydroquinone, or phthalates, as these might pose risks. More mild alternatives include substances like aloe vera, coconut oil, and cocoa butter. Pregnancy can lead to skin changes like stretch marks, dryness, and increased pigmentation, and a carefully curated skin care regimen can help prevent and treat such concerns.

All of the products we offer at True Beauty Med Spa are hand-selected by Dr. Friedlander and her team to provide only the highest quality treatments to our patients. Our skilled specialists can help you design your custom at-home beauty regimen, as well as provide you with the best topical treatments to enhance and support your in-office treatment recovery.

While it is generally safe to combine medical-grade products with regular beauty products, it’s best to prioritize quality over quantity when it comes to skin care. We work with our patients to create synergistic, personalized skin care regimens.
