Elite Products

When it comes to skincare, sometimes the most impactful part of your routine can be the ingredients in the products you use. Most people may not realize it, but even if you have a skincare routine in place, the ingredients in your current products may not be addressing your skin care needs as much as you think they are. Whether you’re cleansing, exfoliating, or moisturizing your face, the ingredients within all your products will have an effect on your skin, and if they are targeting a different issue than the one your

ep1skin is experiencing, you may not see improvement.

At Elite Plastic Surgery, we understand the importance of treating your face with the right ingredients, no matter your goals. Some patients are looking to clear up their acne, while others are looking to improve skin tone or achieve a brighter, more radiant look. Either way, healthy skin starts with healthy ingredients, especially ones that can help get rid of the skin care issues you’ve been struggling with. This is why we are proud to offer to our patients Elite Skincare!

Elite Skincare

Our medical-grade skin care line uses the highest quality ingredients, creating safe, effective and cosmetically elegant products that are manufactured in a state-of-the-art FDA registered lab.

Each product is developed with the purpose of providing our skin care clients with healthy, beautiful skin. The cleansers, exfoliators, serums, moisturizers, and SPF products have been specially formulated with cutting-edge ingredients in order to customize a program for you. Green Tea, Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Antioxidants, Botanicals, and Retinols are some of the things that we use to help deliver an effective, easy-to-use system for cleaner, smoother, younger-looking skin.

Our skin care products can be used on both women and men and can be applied to all skin types. We take care in developing our products so that even with ingredients that are made to target specific skincare issues such as wrinkles, acne, or dehydration, they can still be used universally and be implemented into your daily routine.

To determine which products will benefit you the most, take a look at our skincare guide below:

Determine Your Skin Type

Everyone has a different skin type, but knowing which skin type you have can help you achieve a better understanding of which ingredients will cater most to your needs. To figure out which skin type fits you, read below:

Oily Skin

If you’ve noticed that your skin is typically shiny, no matter what time of day it is, you may have oily skin. People with oily skin types usually have fewer wrinkles but are often more prone to enlarged pores, acne, blackheads, and whiteheads. Just because you have oily skin, however, it doesn’t mean you don’t need to moisturize. Your skincare routine should utilize a gentle cleanser and a light moisturizer that doesn’t add excess oil to your natural oils.

Dry Skin

People with dry skin may notice that their skin is often dehydrated, flaking, or tight. This skin type lacks natural moisture and can be prone to more wrinkles. Dry skin types may also experience sunburn and the effects of sun damage more quickly than others, so it is recommended to include a hydrating cleanser, sunscreen, and hydrated moisturizer in your skincare routine to reduce dryness and improve the appearance of your skin.

Combination Skin

People with combination skin experience both excessive oiliness and dryness on their faces at the same time. While most combination skin types have an oily T-zone (the forehead and the nose), the rest of their face may be dry, flaky, and patchy. Though complicated, it’s not difficult to treat this as hydrating cleansers, regular exfoliation, and oil blotting can help maintain a more balanced feel to the skin.

Know Your Needs

The next step in choosing the right skin care product for your skincare routine is to identify your needs and concerns regarding the health of your skin. Whether you’re struggling with acne or are bothered by the unevenness of your skin’s tone, there are multiple combinations of our products you can apply that will help address them. With a good, consistent skincare routine, patients can expect to improve the appearance of the following skin conditions:

  • Acne
  • Dark circles
  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Age spots
  • Sunspots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dryness
  • Oiliness
  • Acne scarring
  • Blackheads
  • Whiteheads

Our products feature high-quality ingredients that can help improve your skin. Whether you have dry, oily, or combination skin, our products are made to help improve your skincare routine and look your best. When choosing which products to use, keep in mind your skin type and consider the benefits of each of our ingredients listed below:

The Ingredients of Our Products

The Benefits of Green Tea

Green tea ingredients included in our products are highly beneficial to the skin and can be used to prevent early signs of aging on the face. Green tea can also clear clogged pores and works as a gentle exfoliator. This ingredient is beneficial for oily and combination skin types.

The Benefits of Alpha Hydroxy Acids

Alpha Hydroxy Acids or AHA help to smooth fine lines and wrinkles on the face. It also helps improve the tone and texture of the overall skin and can address dark spots, and discoloration, and improve the appearance of large pores. If you are an oily skin type or someone who experiences a lot of uneven skin tone on the face, using a product with AHA in it routinely will help improve your overall appearance. Dry skin types can use products with AHA as well, but it’s always recommended to follow up with moisturizer afterward.

The Benefits of Antioxidants

Antioxidants that come in fruits such as blueberries have always been beneficial to the body, and when applied to the skin, they can bring even more benefits. Cleansers that are made with antioxidants in them can help protect skin cells from damage and aging. This ingredient is also great at removing excess oil, dead skin cells, and sebum, leaving a more radiant complexion on the skin. Oily and combination skin types will benefit from this ingredient.

The Benefits of Botanicals

Botanical products are made from plants and herbs and often include less harsh chemicals and more natural ingredients. Because botanicals can provide natural hydration, these products are great for those with dry or combination skin. Not only are botanical products nourishing because of their natural ingredients, but they can also help prevent premature aging and inflammation of the skin.

The Benefits of Retinol

Retinol is a powerful ingredient, and when used in skincare, it can help to clear the skin of acne, and the bacteria that cause it and lead to a firmer, plumper look to the face. Because retinol can cause some dryness on the skin, if dry skin types use retinol, it’s best to use a moisturizer after. If you are prone to acne, retinol can help you clear up your skin and prevent more breakouts and scarring in the future, making it a great ingredient for combination skin types. Retinol can also help with anti-aging, as it increases skin elasticity, reduces inflammation, and prevents clogged pores.

The Importance of a Good Skincare Routine

All day long, our skin sheds. Even with a great cleanser, sometimes cleansing alone is not enough to keep your skin protected as much as it needs. In addition to a cleanser, we recommend using a serum to help address your skin’s top issues and adding an exfoliator to help clear off dead skin cells from your face.

Along with moisturizing, it’s also essential to keep your skin protected from the sun to prevent the risk of sun damage. Sun damage can lead to premature wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots, pigmentation, and other long-lasting effects on the face. In serious cases, the effects of sun damage may also lead to skin cancer.

Because of this, skin care is essential not only to your appearance but also to your health! To achieve the best version of your skin, consider choosing products that contain ingredients that can specifically target the issues that come with your skin type.
