As California heats up for summer fun and t-shirts, shorts and bathing suits become our wardrobe of choice, there is no better time to clear up your skin. Dr. Effron and Cosmetic Dermatology of Orange County have a wide range of treatments to give you the summer skin of your dreams.
Protect, protect, protect – Before we even talk about anything else, first and foremost we must protect our skin. No matter what your skin type or the time of year, sunscreen is critical and cannot be skipped.
The sunscreen you choose should offer broad-spectrum protection and be an SPF of at least 30, accommodates your oily or dry skin, and that has high UVA protection against aging, melanoma & squamous cell carcinoma. Our new Ultra-Sheer Sunscreen spray is perfect for summertime, and not only offers a clear, weightless zinc (the gold standard of sunscreens) but it is fortified with antioxidants to offer further protection. Sunscreens and antioxidants work hand in hand to quench free-radical damage from UV rays.
Bacne – There is no better time of the year to treat back and body acne. Our acne products are formulated with both glycolic and salicylic acid to treat the problem in two different ways. Glycolic acid promotes exfoliation while salicylic acid prevents blackheads and breakouts. Our Bacne Spray comes in a special omni-directional spray pump that allows the product to be dispense from any angle, even upside down, the perfect solution for treating backs and hard to reach areas. Our acne pads are quick and effective as either a toner pad, or as a facial or back wipe.
Swept away – In the office, we offer our Dermasweep procedure. Dermasweep is the next generation microdermabrasion system using a silk brush that not only polishes the skin without the use of crystals, but also infuses the skin with specialized formulas of Salcylic Acid, Glycolic Acid or Chamomile for sensitive skin. For acne patients we offer a salicylic acid treatment that can then be followed up with at-home products.
Get rid of the layers – We offer several different chemical peels that will help to rapidly clear acne with very little down time. Our EffronMD Signature peel offers a variety of different acids and is perfect for all skin types and goals of acne reduction, rapid rejuvenation, color correction or simply brightening your skin. These peels will start your summer with a glow!
On the go – Vacation time doesn’t mean forgetting your skin care regimen. The key is to keep it easy! Ask our friendly staff about our on-the-go products such as our Antioxidant Treatment Pads that are the perfect cleanser to take with you. These convenient pads even remove makeup!
