Frequently Asked Questions

What types of skin will get the most benefit from the SkinMedica line of products?

SkinMedica products are intended to be used on any type of skin and the majority of skin conditions, including post-procedure and sensitive skin.  It is best to consult with your physician regarding which of these products will be best for your skin concerns.

Where do wrinkles come from?

These common signs of aging are a result of degeneration in the infrastructure of the skin’s proteins.  A reduction in collagen and stored antioxidants often result from this degeneration, resulting in wrinkles. Wrinkles can also be a result of the skin creasing over time from repeated use.

Where do age spots come from?

What are colloquially referred to as ‘age spots’ are actually the result of sun exposure.  More correctly referred to as solar lentigines or sun spots these blemishes appear on those parts of the body that receive direct sun on a regular basis.  The regular exposure to the sun reduces in production of additional melanin in the neck, forearms, hands, face, and chest.

What does the term ‘photodamage’ mean?

“Photo” means light, referring to the photons from which light is made.  Exposure to ultraviolet light is harmful to the skin and creates damage when overexposure is experienced.  This damage can include sunburn or more chronic damage resulting from ongoing exposure.

Just as your physician plays an important role in your overall health, he or she also plays a key role in helping you maintain healthy skin. With any skin care regimen it’s important to consult with your dermatologist or skin care specialist. He or she can analyze your skin care routine, tell you what’s working and determine what you can do to further enhance the health and beauty of your skin.

What are the causes of wrinkles and age spots?

Lines and wrinkles are caused by degenerative changes in the proteins of the skin’s infrastructure such as loss of stored antioxidants and reduction in collagen. Wrinkles are also caused by movement of the skin resulting in creases over time.

Age spots are also known as sun spots or solar lentigines. Age spots are associated with cumulative sun exposure. Sun spots mostly appear in areas consistently exposed to sunlight such as the back of the hands, the forearms, neck, chest and face. The pigment producing cells in the skin (melanocytes) are stimulated to produce more pigment when exposed to ultraviolet rays.
