Skin Care Treatment Options
Whether you need Retin-A or glycolic acid treatment, Dr. Margoles will perform the initial application in her Greenwich office.
Retin-A is most effective for 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 freshly cleansed 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.
Glycolic acid or “fruity acid” treatments even out skin tone and leave rough or sun-damaged skin smoother and more youthful looking after only a few applications. Glycolic acid comes in either a face wash or topical cream application that is combined with a special moisturizer and sometimes bleaching agent. The Glycolic cream or face wash is applied twice daily. Dr. Margoles will adjust the prescription strength and frequency as needed.
Skin Care Regime Aftercare & Recovery
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. Both Retin-A and Glycolic Acid thin the skin’s outer layer. 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.
