Here at Utah Facial Plastics, we pride ourselves on offering top results when it comes to skin and facial rejuvenation. A good skincare regimen in combination with in-office treatments or procedures will provide the best results and prevent further damage as much as possible. Patients get much more out of their treatments in our office when consistently taking care of their skin at home.
We offer an array of products from SkinMedica, SkinCeuticals and PCA. We made the decision to add some products from a new line, SkinBetter, because they prove to offer additional benefits for our patients. Here are our top 3 favorite SkinBetter products that we are now excited to offer.
1. SkinBetter AlphaRet Overnight Cream
I have NEVER been able to tolerate a retinol cream, even at the lowest percent with all the tricks and end up only being able to use it about once a week with expected irritation and redness. So I was incredibly hesitant when I was told to expect little to no irritation with this retinoid product from SkinBetter that also includes alpha hydroxy acid (AHA).
I have been using the product now for a full month and can honestly say I have had zero issues! I am completely sold and have already been recommending it to many patients. I can also see that it’s still working as my skin looks brighter and more even-toned. A good retinol/retinoid product is important to increase cell turnover in the skin and is a gold-standard in any anti-aging regimen. It’s no wonder Allure gave this one a “Best of Beauty” Big Breakthrough award for 2016.
2. SkinBetter Lines Smoothing Intensive Treatment
You may have heard of a new product referred to as ‘Restylane in bottle’. Well this is it! This product is a hyaluronic acid topical line smoother that penetrates into the skin to fill in lines and wrinkles. It’s recommended for use just in areas you receive filler or would like to receive filler to improve lines and fold. Common areas include the lips, nasolabial folds, around the eyes, and any area with wrinkles to plump! The great thing is that this product will last you a long time since you are only treating specific areas.
3. Alto Defense Serum
SkinBetter’s Alto Defense Serum is a scientifically advanced, super potent antioxidant technology with a combination of 19 ingredients to protect and repair the skin.
We currently have other great antioxidant options from SkinMedica and SkinCeuticals, such as TNS Essential Serum and CE Ferulic as well. This product is great for patients with sensitive skin that react to other products, which was me and I’ve had no issues using this antioxidant. It’s also great for those who are looking for a great antioxidant at a lower price point, as Alto Defense Serum is less expensive than the other options.
