Skin Matters: Dermatologist Doctor Usmani does know best!

DR Usmani

Take your first steps toward a lifetime of healthy skin with Dr. Andleeb Usmani

I had the lovely opportunity to chat with Wellington based, Dr. Andleeb A. Usmani, this past weekend. Dr. Andleeb Usmani D.O., F.A.O.C.D, is a board certified Dermatologist, so if anybody knows about skin care and what is best for your skin, it is she. As the founder of Truderm Adult & Pediatric Dermatology & Skin Care Center, she specializes in all of the most technological advances in the field and it is privilege to be able to share some advice from her with my readers.

“Everybody’s skin is different so everybody has different needs” says Dr. Usmani. She offers a variety of facials with the the first step in deciding on the products or facials to offer is to determine which category the patient falls into. Everybody technically, falls into three different categories. For those with Normal to Oily skin she recommends cleansing, antioxidants, a sunscreen and a moisturizer.  Antioxidants are used to neutralize the skin in order to prevent wrinkling as well as adding nutrients like Vitamin A or Vitamin C to the skin. Clients with Sensitive or Acne Prone skin would want to choose a cleanser with Salycic Acid content to unclog pores or prevent further clogging. While more mature patients will want to focus on fighting wrinkles, diminishing age spots and brightening skin with Glycolic Cleansers or products with collagen building effects.

Once the category is determined she will treat the skin with the right facial for them and prescribe product favorites like Obagi and Skinceuticals. Cleansing two times per day, in the morning and before bed at home is essential. “If you do not cleanse in the evening you are at risk to clog your pores with all the makeup” and impurities built up throughout the day.

You can invest hundreds of dollars on creams, serums, spa treatments or medical spa procedures but to prevent wrinkles and reverse the aging process, you need to also invest in yourself at home.  A daily regime is essential!  So if you don’t take care of your “homework” then you will basically be “undoing everything you do.”

So for those of you that want your skin to be smooth and supple skin, be sure to consult with a Dermatologist like Dr. Usmani to determine your skin care prescription for a lifetime committment to healthy skin. When you invest money in facials or creams keep in mind if the expense is going to be beneficial based on your goals. Then be sure to maintain those goals at home!

TruDerm Dermatology of Wellington is located at 3319 FL-7 #202, Wellington, FL 33449. Dr. Usmanis offers complimentary consultations.

Product Picks: Lady Spa Spa loves Rodan + Fields

Lady Spa Spa just loves Rodan + Fields Dermatology line and here’s why. These two clever female Doctors; Doctor Katie Rodan and Doctor Kathie Fields invented the top global anti-acne remedy Proactiv Solution soon after leaving Stanford Medical School 15 years ago. This is STILL the “go to” solution for acne sufferers worldwide. Well, now they have invented a new ANTI AGE Dermatology line so that Lady Spa Spa followers can enjoy true dermatological solutions at  local spas….

Whether you look in the mirror and hate your wrinkles, sun damage (a big one for us Floridians), acne or irritated skin, the Doctors have a clinically proven solution for you available without a prescription. Lady Spa Spa tried the Anti Age regimen for wrinkles and sagging skin and saw a dramatic improvement in only 10 days. The Doctors call their Anti-Age Night Renewing Serum “Spanx for the skin” and we see why!

Lady Spa Spa predicts these products will soon be in your local favorite spa. Remember where you heard about it first!  However, if your skin just can’t wait that long, click here  to try the Doctor’s Solution Tool which is a fun, interactive way to find out what regimen is best suited for your skin concerns.
