Cleanse Daily

This is a must! Whether, oily, dry, or combination skin, we have the perfect facial cleanser at the Medical Spa of Baton Rouge. Not only should this be done twice a day, but some cleansers require sitting on the skin for several minutes as they both cleanse and treat the skin.

Clinical Pearl: Try a salicylic-based cleanser for oily skin and a glycolic-based cleanser for dry skin.

Toner

A few spritzes of toner is all you need to neutralize and balance skin PH. Toners, like cleansers, should be chosen based on skin type; I recommend salicylic-based toners for oily acne skin and witch hazel or more neutral toners for normal to dry skin.

Antioxidents

It doesn’t matter your age, gender, or ethnicity - everybody should use a daily antioxidant.  Replenish your skin with the nutrients it needs to remain healthy and glowing. Topical vitamin A, through its collagen-producing ability, is the most potent, age-reversing and age-preventing prescriptive antioxidant. Topical vitamin C is the facial guardian. It protects and maintains collagen while providing both anti-inflammatory and SPF sun protection properties. Other antioxidants beneficial to the skin include zinc, copper, and vitamin K.

Clinical Pearl: Vitamin A is drying and causes exfoliation, so we recommend to titrate slowly!

Pigment Correctors

These products correct hyper-pigmentation to the skin. We sell both prescriptive and non-prescriptive pigment correctors at The Medical Spa of Baton Rouge. We always recommend rotating these products after 6 months as the skin can become used to them. Vitamin C, Hydroquinone and non-Hydroquinone products in combination with topical vitamin A or tretinoin has been shown to be beneficial in pigment correction and are all sold at our spa.

Sun Protectors

The Medical Spa of Baton Rouge provides a broad spectrum of sunscreens to protect against the sun’s most damaging rays. Our unique formulations protect your skin against aging UVA and damaging UVB rays. We provide both tinted and non-tinted sunscreens to help you achieve a non-greasy, flawless look. We always have testers in the spa to make sure these sunscreens blend seamlessly with your skin type and color.

Clinical Pearl: If you are oily or acne prone, avoid oil containing sunscreens!
