Skin Care

Even if you follow a strict skin care regime, the effects of aging and environmental elements will eventually leave their mark. We offer multiple skin care treatments at Dr. Margoles' plastic surgery Fairfield County office to help you combat these factors and give you a fresh, new look.

Skin care options need to be customized to fit your specific needs, and Dr. Margoles will take the time evaluate your complexion to provide you with a personalized recommendation.

Benefits of Skin Care Regime

Skin care regimes can enhance you appearance and restore a more youthful glow to your skin. Although they will not have the same effects as surgical procedures like facelifts, or even outpatient procedures like dermabrasion, chemical peels or botox, they will rejuvenate your appearance.

A skin care regime can treat:

  • Signs of aging
  • Damage caused by weather
  • Acne scarring

Anyone can benefit from a healthy skin care regime and Dr. Margoles can guide you down the right path for you. Currently, Dr. Margoles administers, prescribes, and educates her patients on two types of skin care treatments: Retin-A and Glyolic Acid.

Your Skin Care with Dr. Margoles

Dr. Margoles will determine which skin care treatment best suites your needs during your initial consultation. Whether you need Retin-A or glyolic acid treatment, Dr. Margoles will perform the initial application in her office.

Retin-A

  • This treatment is most effective on older patients with wrinkles or blotchy pigmentation and is often prescribed to individuals who are scheduled for a chemical peel. Retin-A is applied in small amounts to areas of your freshly washed skin that need attention. Periodic follow-up visits can be scheduled to ensure the proper strength has been prescribed. Over time you will begin to see subtle improvements in your skin’s texture and tone.

Glyolic Acid

  • Glyolic acid or “fruity acid” treatments offer smoother skin to individuals of all ages who have rough or sun-damaged skin. This treatment comes in either a face wash or topical cream application that is combined with a special moisturizer and sometimes bleaching agent. The glyolic cream or face wash is applied twice daily and Dr. Margoles may adjust the prescription strength and frequency as needed. After several uses you will begin to see smoother and more even-toned skin.

Both retin-A and glyolic acid thin the skin’s outer layer and as a result you will need to use a high-end sunblock for protection. Dr. Margoles may also advise you to discontinue the use of any other cosmetic product.

What to Expect After Your Skin Care Regime

Many of Dr. Margoles’ patients find that maintaining their new skin care regime is easier than expected. Using the prescribed treatment products will become a part of your daily routine and the difference you see will be worth the effort.
