While you may have been diligently maintaining the skin on your face, you may not have been paying as much attention on your neck and chest. The skin on your décolletage (neck and chest) is vulnerable to visible signs of aging, since it tends to be thinner, less moisturized, and often overlooked in the sun.

Dermaplaning, also known as "epidermal leveling" of the skin, is a topical exfoliation treatment that leaves skin radiant looking.

These treatments can be combined with chemical peels for deeper exfoliation and followed by an appropriate professional moisturizer such as Daily Moisture or Renew Overnight by SkinCeuticals. Dermaplaning can be done every 3-4 weeks to maintain healthy and glowing skin.

Chemical peels are a great clinical treatment option for deeper exfoliation. TCA peels, the most popular kind of chemical peels, are quick and effective. They are safe on all skin types and most skin conditions. They are excellent for correction as well as maintenance.
November 2011: Diminish fine lines and wrinkles!
The combination of topical medication Tretinoin (Retin-A) and Botox will diminish your fine lines and wrinkles.
Tretinoin (Retin-A) is the only topical medication that has been proven to improve fine lines and wrinkles. Although tretinoin is more commonly associated with acne treatment, it is also approved by the FDA to reduce the effects of photoaging on the skin (wrinkles). It increases the cell turnover process and strengthens the collagen fibers by penetrating deep into the dermis of your skin.
Botox can help soften the noticeable wrinkles which appear even without muscle contraction. As we get older and lose elasticity in the skin, a crease can form and leave a permanent wrinkle behind. Botox will correct those wrinkles.
Botox and Tretinoin together will not only diminish the existing fine lines and wrinkles but also prevent them from appearing in the future.

Repair the sun damaged skin with medical grade skin lightening products and Intense Pulse Light (IPL) laser treatments.
