When a patient enters our offices, her skin tells us a story about her past habits and future appearance – her PerSKINality, if you will. From the amount of sleep she gets each night and the amount of time she’s spent in the sun, to the skincare she uses and the genes she’s been blessed with, everything plays a role.

To bring this personalized dermatology experience to the home, we’ve developed a custom diagnostic tool to help identify who you are and what you need to help your skin go the distance, no matter what yourPerSKINality.

The tool was designed to “think like a derm.” We spent countless hours customizing and fine-tuning the image analysis software so that it identifies the issues you should be treating first. It’s not always what you expect, and that’s okay. It’s human nature to get fixated on issues that aren’t necessarily the most important for you to treat.PerSKINality is designed to help you identify the issue that we as dermatologists believe should be addressed to make the biggest difference in your skin and provide you with the right solution. And through PerSKINality communities, you can connect with people who share your same skin issues.

Find out your PerSKINality. Take the guesswork out of determining the most effective skincare program for you to help you end 2012 with the best complexion of your life. It’s never too soon or too late to take control of your skin’s destiny.

Skin is a beautiful thing … wear it well.

Mixing and Matching Your Skincare

“Your regular family doc prescribes drugs carefully, taking care not to combine medications that would either inhibit effectiveness, or cause dangerous symptoms when used together. When it comes to skincare … same rules apply. Skincare regimens that have been formulated to work together to achieve results should be used together. Mixing and matching brands or products to create your own regimen could result in a lack of benefit as well as skin sensitivity and other undesired side effects. For best results, use as directed and remember, consistency is key.”DermRF

Piling on the Anti-Aging Products Before You’ve Cleared Summer Clutter

“Dull skin, brown spots and freckles are all signs of sun damage. And no amount of anti-aging serums, lotions and potions will ever reverse their appearance. Before you get aggressive with your anti-aging efforts, clean the slate with a hydroquinone-based regimen to clear away the skin clutter. Not only will your skin look and feel smoother and more even, your anti-aging products will be more effective at addressing other issues like lines and wrinkles when the time comes.”DermRF

An Ounce of Prevention

The doctors Rodan & Fields also know the best wrinkle is the one you never get. It is never too soon or too late to incorporate ANTI-AGE skincare into your daily routine. although the signs of aging manifest differently for different skin types, the principles of combating the raves of time are the same.

  • Keep cell renewal vibrant
  • Protect from collagen breakdown
  • Support natural restorative processes
  • Get ingredients to their proper target

Vitiligo appears as large white patches on the skin that are devoid of pigmentation. It is an autoimmune condition affecting 1%-2% of the population and is most strikingly visible and disfiguring in people of color. Medical treatment includes topical steroids, tacrolimus and the application of a photosensitizing agent followed by controlled UVA light exposure. Monobenzone or Benoquin is the treatment of last resort, permanently depigmenting any remaining unaffected areas to achieve an even color Additionally, camouflage cosmetics can be helpful.

Are You Skincare Agnostic?

If you’ve been sitting on the sidelines trying to decide whether you buy all the hype about skincare, you’re in for a very pleasant surprise. Virtually every clinical study we have conducted as skincare product developers has demonstrated that those basic soap-and-water loyalists almost always see a dramatic difference in the quality of their skin once they step up their game with modern skincare technology.
