Each type of lotion is different. Find out how to care for your dry skin effectively.

Despite the fact that spring isn’t too far behind, we still have to put up with snow, cold temperatures and freezing winds. These winter elements can wreak havoc on our skin, causing it to become dry, chapped and red. If you are one of those people who are currently trying to find some way to alleviate their dry skin, then you’ve come to the right place. Find out the best moisturizer to help your chapped, cracked skin, and how to prevent this problem from happening to you next winter.

The Right Moisturizer for You

It can be difficult to choose the right product for your skin. After all, not all skin was created equally and there is often some trial and error when it comes to choosing the most effective moisturizer. So what kind of lotion should you look for? If you have sensitive skin, seek out a soothing, creamy moisturizer containing ceramide, which is gentle enough for delicate skin.

If you don’t have sensitive skin but you are suffering from severe dryness, then you’ll want to look for a richer moisturizer that contains urea, beeswax, or petroleum jelly, which help to lock in moisture and offer the skin a protective barrier against the drying elements.

Also, keep in mind that the skin on your face is different than the skin on your body so you’ll want to choose a different moisturizer for both. When it comes to choosing a moisturizer for your face look for a bottle that says that it’s noncomedogenic, which means that it won’t clog your pores and leave you prone to breakouts. Also opt for a moisturizer that acts as a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more. This will also act as a protective shield against sun, wind, and cold.

Apply Your Moisturizer

How you apply your moisturizer is often just as important to choosing the proper moisturizer. We recommend applying a generous amount of moisturizer right after you step out of the shower and pat yourself partially dry. You want to apply your moisturizing cream to your skin while it’s still a bit moist to help your skin absorb more water.

If your skin needs some serious moisturizing then you may want to consider applying the cream before bedtime and then wearing breathable gloves or socks over the hands and feet overnight to offer a deeper moisturizing experience.

Don’t let dry skin drive you crazy. If you haven’t found a lotion that helps combat your dry skin, then it’s time to talk to your dermatologist today to find out what products are right for you. Call us to schedule an appointment and lets nip your dry skin in the bud.

HydraFacial Have you been looking for a way to rejuvenate your aging skin? If you answered "yes," then you need to look into HydraFacial from your board-certified dermatologists at the Skin Center in Fort Lauderdale! An amazing combination of cleansing, exfoliating, brightening, smoothing and tightening, this medical-grade spa experience gives patients a refreshed look and feel in just thirty minutes. Is HydraFacial right for you?

What is a HydraFacial?

At the Skin Center, you'll be carefully examined and have your skin goals reviewed before your doctor recommends this innovative and reliable procedure. If you qualify, your HydraFacial will smooth sagging skin, tighten overly large pores, and lighten dark spots.

Most people can enjoy a HydraFacial no matter what their skin type or age. However, pregnant women and individuals with active skin lesions, rosacea, or sunburn should postpone this treatment.

Here's How It Works

The entire HydraFacial process is performed in a comfortable and modern treatment room right at the Skin Center. Using a special handheld instrument and skin-loving treatments, your provider will combine the wonderful effects of a chemical peel, toning facial, and exfoliative microdermabrasion treatment all in one procedure.

Additionally, you'll enjoy painless extraction of acne lesions and the soothing benefits of Britenol Boost for hyperpigmentation along with precise delivery of peptides, hyaluronic acid, and protective growth factors and antioxidants. The spiral-tipped delivery tool is gentle, yet effective, in cleansing pores. The LED portion of the procedure tightens and thickens skin, helping it resist sagging and the fine lines.

It's Renewable

A HydraFacial lasts for several days, making your enhanced appearance perfect for special occasions such as weddings, a professional presentation, or a second honeymoon. It's so good for your skin and self-confidence that your dermatologists at the Skin Center recommend it as often as once a month, in conjunction with your other medical and aesthetic dermatology needs of course.

Why Not Learn More?

If a HydraFacial seems perfect for you, why not contact the Skin Center and arrange a consultation with one of our expert providers? You'll receive a full evaluation and care plan, along with a skin sensitivity test to ensure this innovative treatment is a good match for your skin. Please call the Skin Center office team at (954) 500-SKIN.

Beautiful Young SkinNo one wants to look older, but as everyone knows, aging is a natural part of life. So, while you can't avoid aging, you most likely still want to look your very best and feel good about yourself. If you look in the mirror and see wrinkling that detracts from your facial appearance, the professional team at the Skin Center in Fort Lauderdale can help. With the expertise of your four board-certified dermatologists at the Center, you'll receive care that gives you the refreshed look you desire. Read below to explore one of their many aesthetic skin treatments: innovative Dysport.

What is Dysport?

Have you heard of BOTOX? Dysport is very similar, as it's a highly purified form of the botulism neurotoxin. Injected into certain muscles of the face, FDA-approved Dysport in Fort Lauderdale curbs the movement of those muscles and reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the surrounding skin. Lines caused by the repeated contraction and relaxation of facial muscles are called dynamic wrinkles.

Is Dysport Right For Me?

Dysport might be just right for you if you are looking for a cosmetic dermatology treatment that is:

  • Quick
  • Comfortable
  • Effective
  • Long-lasting
  • Non-surgical

Injection with Dysport avoids the expense, downtime, and discomfort associated with complex facelifts and other reconstructive procedures. It works well with healthy skin care regimens and is renewable, meaning that while the effects of Dysport last three to four months only, the treatments can be repeated as needed.

When you come to the Skin Center in Fort Lauderdale for a consultation, your dermatologist will do a routine skin examination.

Dysport Treatments

Procedures happen right in the office. Your doctor will begin by preparing the areas with some mild numbing cream. Then, they will use a very fine needle to inject the medication right where it's needed. You'll leave the office in about half an hour and go back to work or home.
Results appear within two days and last for a few months.
