The new year is the perfect time to reveal a new you

There's no better time than at the beginning of the new year to debut a new look. With all the stress and chaos of the holiday season and making it through another year, why not take some time to work on yourself? From some basic new practices to more involved procedures, there are a number of ways you can start 2016 with a fresh look and feel great about aging another year.

According to Dr. Ava Shamban, an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at the University of California Los Angeles Geffen School of Medicine, it might be most effective to get more done at once. She told the Los Angeles Times that the future of skincare is multitasking by having a few procedures done in the same session, like a laser treatment followed by topical products.

Here are some of the skin care or cosmetic issues you might be thinking about in 2016:

Wrinkle control

The first concern people usually have about the effects of aging on skin is the look of fine lines and wrinkles. While having some of these lines can be endearing, others are pesky and unwanted. As you age, your face loses its elasticity and lines begin to form in certain areas of your face. It's a normal sign of getting older, but you don't have to show the evidence of aging another year. Certain topical creams can help reduce the look of lines and wrinkles, but if you're looking for better results, procedures like laser treatments, microdermabrasion, chemical peels and facelifts can give you a youthful glow.

Thinning hair

A lot of people lose hair for a number of different reasons, like male pattern baldness or certain skin disorders. It's also a common effect of aging. Despite how widespread it is, it leaves a lot of people feeling self-conscious. Luckily, when it comes to thinning hair, there are different treatments to choose from depending on the cause and severity. We offer procedures that range from over-the-counter treatments to hair transplant surgery. You can consult with a professional to determine what kind of solution is right for you and your new look.

Adult acne can be one of the more frustrating effects of aging skin, but luckily it is easily treated. Adult acne can be one of the more frustrating effects of aging skin, but luckily it is easily treated.


While this skin condition seems more like a juvenile issue, acne can affect people at any age, even older adults. It can be extremely frustrating when some areas of your skin still seem to be stuck in high school, but fortunately, there are several ways to combat acne. Sometimes a new skin care routine with topical ointments and creams works, but not all skin types are the same. We offer a phototherapy procedure that uses different delivery specific wavelengths of light to destroy acne-causing bacteria. It's a safe, painless procedure that's proven more effective than other treatments that only use one wavelength.
