Do I need a doctor to improve my skin?

The Science of Healthy Skin

Most people think of skincare as a purely cosmetic task, but in reality, it can be much more.

While there are some basic skincare products that can be purchased over-the-counter, many people find themselves needing to visit a medical specialist for help with their skin. Treatment of certain skin conditions like acne and eczema requires the use of specific medications that can only be administered by a trained physician. Below is a list of some common conditions that require specialized care:

Acne:

This condition is caused by bacteria on the skin that causes pimples, pustules, and breakouts. It can be treated with oral antibiotics, topical creams, and even laser therapy if necessary.

Rosacea:

This condition causes redness and flushing on the cheeks, nose and chin area. There are many different types of rosacea and treatment may include topical creams, oral medications, or laser therapy.

Scars:

Scars, particularly those that have resulted from injury or surgery, are often best treated by an experienced facial cosmetic surgeon who can help you find the right treatment to minimize long-term scarring and improve any scar-related symptoms such as itching, burning, or continued growth.

Sensitivity:

If you have sensitive skin, it is important to use products that do not further irritate your skin. A facial cosmetic surgeon with extensive experience in medical grade skincare can help you find the right gentle products and ingredients to help improve signs and symptoms related to sensitive skin.

Photoaging:

This condition is caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun. The damage caused by photoaging includes visible changes such as fine lines, wrinkles, and unwanted pigmentation. Chronic sun exposure may also lead to the development of early skin cancer. An experienced medical provider can examine the skin for concerning lesions and make recommendations for prevention of premature aging, wrinkles, dryness, and skin cancer.

What’s in a facial cleanser?

Cleansers

Facial cleansers are the foundation of any good skincare routine. They are designed to remove dirt and makeup without stripping your skin of essential oils. When choosing a facial cleanser, look for ingredients such as lactic acid or salicylic acid that help to exfoliate surface build-up and old skin cells that may contribute to blemishes, breakouts, and a dull complexion. RENATA Facial Cosmetic Surgery in Brooklyn skincare starts with our premium selection of facial cleansers with highly effective ingredients. From gentle foaming cleansers that are ideal for sensitive skin, to deep cleansing gels that remove even the most stubborn makeup, there's something for everyone in our range of products.

Serums: hype or real?

Serums

Serums are an important part of any skincare routine, especially if you are looking to treat specific skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, dry skin, or wrinkles. Serums can help with everything from hydration to meeting your anti-aging needs. These ingredients are often more concentrated than what you would find in a moisturizer or lotion and can be more effective at targeting your key concerns.

RENATA Facial Cosmetic Surgery offers a premium selection of facial serums. Our serums contain luxurious and active ingredients ranging from peptides to high potency Vitamin C. These serums are formulated to help you tailor your skincare regimen, whether you are looking to treat a specific concern such as dark spots or simply want to maintain a radiant, glowing complexion. Some common ingredients found in our serums include:

Vitamin C:

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that plays a vital role in the production of collagen, which helps to keep your skin smooth and supple. Vitamin C also works to brighten the complexion, diminish dark spots, and reduce the visible signs of aging. In addition, it's been shown to promote cell turnover, which helps your skin look younger. There are many different types of vitamin C, but they all have one thing in common: they are powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants help protect your skin from free radicals that can lead to premature aging and other skin problems.

Hyaluronic Acid:

Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance that can help plump the skin, hydrate, and retain moisture. It is also naturally present in human skin, where it acts as a cushion between cells to keep them hydrated, plump, and resilient. As we age, there is a decrease in the amount of hyaluronic acid that is available to our skin. Topically applied hyaluronic acid is thought to be an effective ingredient in skincare products because it can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, significantly hydrating the skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Peptides:

Peptides are protein fragments that help boost collagen production in your skin. When paired with other ingredients like retinol or vitamin C, peptide serums can dramatically improve the overall appearance and firmness of the skin. Many cosmetic serums contain peptides, but not all peptides are created equal. Some peptides have been shown to have better results than others when it comes to smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, and some even stimulate collagen production. The most effective peptide will contain a variety of different kinds of peptide molecules that work together to achieve maximum results.

to Glowing Skin

Moisturizers

Facial moisturizers are designed to keep your skin soft and hydrated, which aids in the prevention of premature aging. They also give you a smoother, more youthful appearance. The truth is, facial moisturizers are an essential part of your skincare routine, no matter what kind of skin you have. They directly benefit the natural skin barrier, which serves as a complex framework to keep water in and protect the body from harmful substances.

The skin barrier is largely composed of lipids (fatty acids) and ceramides. When ceramides are depleted from the skin, it loses its ability to maintain moisture levels and protect against environmental stressors. If not replenished, this can lead to premature aging and hypersensitivity. Moisturizer helps supplement your natural ceramide levels so that your skin stays healthy, resilient, and hydrated. Moisturizers come in a variety of forms, including creams, lotions, and oils. Dr. Renata offers a selection of premium moisturizers suitable for various skin types, including dry, mature, sensitive, and oily skin.

Facial Treatments for Your Specific Skin

Occasionally, even with the most rigorous skincare routine and plenty of rest, stubborn skincare issues can arise and require more than the routine products being used on a daily basis. In addition to helping you build your essential daily skincare collection, Dr. Renata Khelemsky takes a physician-guided approach to treating stubborn skincare conditions such as acne or redness. After a professional in-depth skin assessment, Dr. Renata will incorporate safe products for occasional or periodic use that are tailored just for you and your specific needs.

Our uniquely formulated medicated facial pads are a gentle and effective way to incorporate treatments into your daily skincare routine. Dr. Renata’s premium collection also offers hydrating serums, serums, and masks that help nourish and brighten the skin during the day or nighttime while you sleep. To protect skin from environmental harm and further photo-aging, Dr. Renata will recommend a highly effective mineral sunscreen to all of her patients. No matter what your skin type is, we have a product custom selected for you and your specific skin type. Get the skin you deserve with our exclusive facial treatments and products at RENATA Facial Cosmetic Surgery. Treat yourself to the gift of glowing, youthful skin that is both healthy and beautiful.

A new way of skincare - minimalism with substance.

Commitment is Key

Dr. Renata’s philosophy is simple: when it comes to skincare, use fewer products, but with higher-quality formulas. While many trends are preaching the benefits of lengthy regimens, Dr. Renata believes that skincare should be simple. After years of clinical experience treating various skin conditions and skin types, Dr. Renata noted that many of her patients grew frustrated with their routines because they were suffering from irritation, dryness, peeling, redness, or just not seeing any improvements at all—even after trying different formulas, products, and regimens. Many of these issues were linked to overuse of high strength formulas or overzealous multi-step routines. Patients who found themselves in this situation would often give up on their skincare altogether.

Introducing – KapelleSkin™, a brand that was born out of a desire to create a skincare line that is simple and effective, without the harsh side effects. Instead of layering high potency formulas that promise drastic results in the short term, using the right ingredients in small doses – doses that can be used every day and for all skin types – can have a much greater effect in the long run. Think of it as a skin fitness program that you can actually stick to. KapelleSkin™ is a luxury cosmetic skincare line that focuses on the daily, consistent use of gentle and high quality ingredients. The products are suitable for all skin types and compile an essential first step to glowing, youthful skin. KapelleSkin™ products are proudly free of parabens, fragrance, alcohol, and sulfates.
