Skin Care Products: Introducing Avene and Glytone
I am excited to announce that we are now offering skin care products from Avene and Glytone. I was first introduced to these brands at my previous role at a well-established dermatology office in Hilliard, Ohio. I quickly fell in love. My skin is very sensitive, and the Avene line of products worked very well for me. I also saw great benefits from the Glytone products while seeing patients at this office.
As a self-proclaimed “skin care nerd,” I try many products despite my sensitive skin. I can sympathize with my patients who have trouble finding a product that does not irritate their skin, yet delivers results. Avene remains my go to product for myself. I oftentimes recommend this line when I meet patients who have rosacea. Patients who have rosacea have to be very cautious with products because they have very reactive skin. I am always confident that they will love Avene because of how soothing it is to skin.
While I love retinols – especially Tretinoin – since they do a wonderful job reducing fine lines and wrinkles–I realize that not every patient can tolerate them very well. Some of my patients’ skin threshold cannot handle Tretinoin, so for those patients I recommend either the Obagi retinol cream, which is a much lower strength than Tretinoin or the Avene RetrinAL 0.1 Intensive Cream.
I am a big fan of taking care of your skin at home to ensure that you get the best results. I can do a lot with facials, lasers, microneedling and chemical peels for my patients, but unless they continue to use high quality products at home, their results will be temporary. For those who love masks, I am happy to be able to now offer them ones that give excellent results, whether they are trying to fight acne or reduce the look of aging. I have tested out these masks not only on my own skin, but I have been using them for years on my patients. Now you can have a mini spa day at home!
