Dermatologist vs. Makeup Counters: Dr. Bruce’s take on it.

Dermatologist in Houston, TX

At Suzanne Bruce and Associates, we are big believers in the importance of being on a good skincare regimen as part of your overall anti-aging plan.  No matter what color or age your skin is you need to take good care of it, so it will last you a lifetime. So this year we want to put the focus back on skincare.

The most important factor that ages our skin is sun exposure.  The damage from chronic ultraviolet radiation day in and day out causes the dermis (the thick, lower layer of your skin) to get thinner and the epidermis (your outer skin layer) to get rougher.  The sun’s light also causes pores to enlarge and brown spots, capillaries and wrinkles to form.

Daily cleansing and daily application of sunscreen are the first building blocks in a good skincare regimen.  Beyond that there are a plethora of products, depending on your skin’s particular condition, that can help reverse the effects of sun damage and rejuvenate the skin.  Hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, niacinamide, peptides, retinol and growth factors are the essentials of any anti-aging arsenal.

So why not just go to the drug store or makeup counter at your favorite department store to get the products and advice you need to create your anti-aging regimen?  Because at Suzanne Bruce and Associates, we have access to the most advanced, scientifically proven and highest strength skincare products available today.  Also as dermatologists, we have the expertise and knowledge to put together a skin care routine that is tailored to your skin’s particular needs.  Our doctors along with specialists and scientists from product manufacturers, such as SkinMedica, SkinCeuticals and SkinBetter to name a few, have personally trained our aestheticians, aesthetic consultants and our support staff.

It’s all about consistency: to achieve great results with skin rejuvenation you need consistency.  To help you maintain your motivation we like to do a series of photographs at different points in time to track your progress.  Through the process you will see the glowing radiant skin that is achievable with an anti-aging skin care program. Thus, making sticking with it long-term a natural conclusion.

Come join us at SBA and together let’s create a plan to healthier, beautiful skin. You can also check out our product line up on our online store shopmdskincare.com.
