Have You Had A Little Too Much Fun In The Sun This Summer? Fall Skin Care Tips From Cathy

Here are some Fall skin care tips from Cathy to get your skin back in shape after summer!

CLEANSE

Did you know it’s important to change your cleanser depending on the season?

In the summer months, your skin tends to have more oil. With the cooler weather, most people will need a more gentle moisturizing cleanser like DSP Antioxidant Foaming Wash. This cleanser is formulated with redness-reducing chamomile extract, collagen-building Hawaiian red sea algae peptides and potent antioxidants that protect against skin damage. Ongoing use yields softer, smoother skin along with a reduction in fine lines and surface dryness.

If you have sensitive skin, try DSP Creamy Botanical Face Wash, a gentle creamy wash for mature, sensitive, very dry skin.

EXFOLIATE

Pores can become clogged from regular sunblock use. Exfoliation with DSP Antioxidant Enzyme Scrub 3x/week will leave skin smooth and clean. It encourages the development of healthy skin cells and keeps skin free of impurities. Another form of exfoliation is DSP Refining and Exfoliating Toner with 2% Salicylic acid and 5% Glycolic acid to remove dead cell buildup and dissolve oil. Remnants of self-tanning products can collect in typically dry areas (such as the elbows), causing the skin to lose its luster and appear “dirty.” Using loofah and scrubs will help in those places.

MOISTURIZE

Using a moisturizer with antioxidants and nourishing vitamins helps brighten skin and reverse damage and deliver firmer and more vibrant skin. I recommend DSP Age Prevent & Repair Moisturizer, which contains a potent blend of antioxidants. For a drier skin type I recommend DSP Deep Sea Skin Renewal Crème.  This hydrating cream delivers visible skin improvement within the first weeks of use.

REMOVE BROWN SPOTS

Post-summer, you may notice more dark spots on your face. These spots are signs of sun damage and make you look older.

Fall is the perfect time to try IPL (Intense Pulse Light), which improves the appearance of photo damaged skin, removes age spots (sun induced freckles), and reduces redness caused by broken capillaries. There is minimal downtime and this gentle,   non-ablative procedure treats the face, chest, neck and hands.

A Letter Of Gratitude For Boston Plastic Surgeon Dr. William P. Adams

August 12, 2014

We recently received this beautiful note from a patient of ours and thought we would share it with you!

Dear Dr. Adams,

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

As you know, I am 49 years old and for the last ten years I have dreamed of having plastic surgery as a gift to myself for my 50th birthday.  I had my first son 29 years ago and my second son 28 years ago.  As a single mother, under a very stressful situation, I gained 100 pounds by the time I reached 39.  At age 40, I decided to lose it and I did.  But much to my disappointment, my body did not “bounce back” into shape as it did 20 years prior after having my children.  Then, 2 years ago, I gained back 50 of it and said “ENOUGH!” and joined a gym.  I worked out hard every day for the last 2 years but no amount of crunches could get rid of the loose skin around my tummy and NOTHING could make my saggy breasts firm and perky again.

That is where you came in and made my dream/goal for the last 10 years come true!

After meeting with you I decided on the “Mommy Makeover” (breast lift/implants, tummy tuck, and some liposuction).  I felt the investment in myself was worth it.  I was worth it!  However, I had never been operated on before and I was very nervous and anxious.  Your warmth and compassion and smile and sense of humor (joking about my fear of needles!) helped put me at ease.

Your warm, friendly bedside manner combined with your skill and talent as a plastic surgeon made this whole process so much easier for me and so worth it!

I cannot thank you enough!

Also, a big thank you to your staff and also the hospital staff at Lynn Union (I am sending a separate letter to the Director of Nurses there as well).  Your office staff is so warm, wonderful, and friendly too!

Thanks to all of you!

Peabody Skincare – What Products Should I Use For Oily To Normal Skin?

July 29, 2014

If you have not tried any of the products from Dr. Adams’ skincare line, DSP (Doctor’s Skin Prescription), I highly recommend scheduling a free consultation with Cathy, our skincare specialist.  During this consultation you will be able to sample some of the products that are best suited for your skin type.

Since it’s summertime, I thought it would be good to highlight some of the best products for oily to normal skin.  These products are also recommended for patients with acne.

Blemish Control Face and Body Wash - The is a benzoyl peroxide based cleanser that will control breakouts and has been proven to clear up acne.  This can be used on the back, chest, and face to control breakouts wherever they may occur!

Refining Exfoliating Toner - Toner is great for all skin types, but especially for those with oily or acneic skin.  Great for refining pores and minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, this toner removes dead skin cell build up, oil and debris.

Zero Shine Mattifying Moisturizer - People with oily skin tend to steer clear of moisturizers but the reality is after cleansing the skin, some moisture is needed to restore the skin back to a healthy balance.  This is where the Zero Shine Mattifying Moisturizer fits in.  A great base before applying make-up or sunscreen, this product will not add shine like many cheap moisturizers on the market.

On The Spot Blemish Stick - I personally never leave home without my blemish stick.  This small vial with a dot on applicator fits in the pocket of my purse with my lip gloss.  I pull it out anytime I see a breakout starting to appear. It’s great for when I am at work, and I get a pimple and want to treat it ASAP.  If you have adolescents struggling with breakouts, they will LOVE this product.

To schedule your complimentary consultation with Cathy, please call (800) 559-3056.  Cathy is in Peabody on Mondays and Thursdays.

We have recently added to our library of breast augmentation before and after photos on Mentor’s Love Your Look website.  If you are looking for detailed case profiles that include informations such as patient height, weight, and age, please take a moment to visit our page.  There is also information about what kind of implant the patient chose, cup size prior to surgery and following surgery, as well as implant placement.  Whereas some patients are not interested in knowing this information prior to their consultation, there are other patients who like to do a lot of research.  If you are one of the latter, I recommend visiting my page on Love Your Look and creating your own Look Book prior to your consultation.

If you are ready to schedule a consultation for Breast Augmentation, please call my office at (800) 559-3056 and ask to speak with my Patient Care Coordinator.
