My name is Susan Schroeder. I’m a board-certified dermatologist that specialises in cosmetic and surgical dermatology and I practise in Colorado and I’m here to tell you what I love about Juvo. There are a number of reasons. First is social media and advertising. I think you all are spot on with the population that we’re trying to target. I love the graphics. I love the colours and the promotions are amazing as well. Two the efficacy and that is the most important thing for me. It works superiorly to all other neurotoxins and I’ve tried them all extensively. At this current time, we only carry Botox and Juvo, and of all of our neurotoxin patients, 95 percent of them as of this date have converted to Juvo. Why do I think it works better? Well, what I find is that the onset of action is shorter. So, in Botox patients where you usually see results of treatment five or seven days out in Juvo, we’re seeing consistent earlier results at three to five days. I’m finding that it’s a predictable product. I don’t have to worry about spread or not working as well or not working at all and I also finding that it has a longer duration of action in most patients. I have many accounts at this point of patients telling me that it lasts an entire month longer than Botox or the competitors. Lastly, well, actually there’s two other things, but the next point is the rewards programme. I love the rewards programme. It’s easy for us to navigate. It’s easy for the patients to understand. I like the instant rebates the only criticism I have is that I don’t think you have enough animals to choose from in that special code that is generated, I would like you to add a Bunny and if you could make it a bronze Bunny that would be perfect, and then you can just pre programme that for all of our patients every time. The last thing I want to mention is that we love our Rep Shelly. She is always upbeat professional excited to be in our office and, and, connect with us. So, thank you for being with us.
Those warmer, warmer, temps come in all right, well you know what today is Fat Tuesday and honour of Fat Tuesday we’re talking about how to get rid of that fat and many devices promises to they promise to reduce fat but none of them have the satisfaction rate efficiency, safety record as to Tumescent liposuction. Doctor Susan Schroder dermatologist at perfect skin dermatology is here to tell us how it works. So, thank you so much for coming today, My pleasure, happy Fat Tuesday. Happy fat Tuesday, no more fat, no more fat Tuesday, right, so tell us the difference between regular liposuction and Tumescent and how it kind of differs, okay so well liposuction is performed using small cannulas blunt cannulas that are tunnelled through the skin and into the fat and they remove tunnels of fat and it’s connected to a very powerful suction device but with the tumescent technique which was developed about 10 years after regular liposuction in the mid-80s we use a local numbing medication that’s infiltrated into the fat enlarging that fat and allowing us to do it so much more safely with so much more down so much less excuse me downtime, which is perfect because when you think liposuction you think giant bruises everywhere, you’re sore you know you see those videos on Instagram or the doctors just really go in and it looks very rough, and people are worried about the dangers of it too most people are completely safe but it is a little bit more risky to do it under general anaesthesia. Alright so tumescent is not under general aesthesia. Not yes, the Tumescent is just local. You are sedated a little bit it may be something to relax you but you are awake and we can stand you up and turn you around and make sure that there is nothing that’s missed and that you’re very even and its really nice result. Absolutely and so what I hear with that is less money because you’re not under the general aesthesia you don’t need an anaesthesiologist right so that also helps. So, what are the areas that can be treated because when I think full-body regular liposuction, I mean you could do the full body is the same with tumescent? It you’re really limited about how what limits you excuse me is how much aesthesia we can actually give you. When I say anaesthesia, I am talking about numbing medication, okay you, okay you could overdo that as well. So, what you just will do certain areas but the areas that can’t be treated are you know the lower legs the calves the thighs the hips the abdomen. We can even reduce breast size with liposuction with just tiny little incisions without the traditional yeah, wow, yeah chin cheek and jowls people that are heavy through here this causes a really nice lift and some controlled fibrosis, so you really do have some tightening through here and these are it’s very little downtime most of my patients if we do it on a Friday, they’ll feel tired through the weekend because this is surgery even they only have tiny little incisions and you may feel somewhat tired when you go back to work on Monday but it’s you know that’s it you’ll be a little tired but you’re, you’re, really ready to go back and you know be in their regular world. You know and I’ll feel a little tired for a banging body you know, absolutely, especially before summer just a couple of days, yeah, but you know if someone wants to invest in something like this, right, it’s not as expensive as they think but are the results permanent. They absolutely are permanent. You have two times in your life when you actually produce fat stores and so if, if, ou’re prone to gaining weight in the thigh area for instance, we go in there and we tunnel and we remove some of those fat cells, you’re not I can’t tell you that you’re never going to gain weight again if you don’t exercise and you’re not eating correctly you’re going to gain weight but it’s not going to be in the areas that we treat those fat stores are going to be permanently removed. That is awesome maybe it’ll get you to the gym feeling a little bit more confident right because you’ve already shed some, some, layers there some, some, inches. All right so let’s talk really quickly about the difference in anaesthesia we kind of mentioned it you just put numbing medication underneath right that expand those fat cells. Right so it’s actually in normal saline bags kind of IV bags that you might see in a hospital and we dilute we use anaesthetics and it’s a connection of not connection it’s a combination of lidocaine and epinephrine and some something to make it less stinging as it goes in, and we infiltrate this into the fat and it does blow it up temporarily, but if we let it sit there. It’s just like what we would use to do a skin biopsy, just a local anaesthesia. That’s perfect so that’s how it could be less invasive less expensive which is amazing so more affordable for everybody out there and you know one question that we didn’t get to was how does it compare to the non-invasive methods and I know we had talked beforehand about those, those, feet free the ones that freeze off or that heated off. They just can’t get the inches that you can and, and, that is not going to you know that could come back with you know liposuction with tumescent it’s you know definitely those fat stores are gone, right? Most patients actually watch the little the, the, container where the fat comes out because it’s so satisfying to see that it’s actually leaving your body. Exactly you could see how much weight you lost right, yeah, we could with the Kos we could be so much more precise. I’d mentioned we do ankles we can sculpt arms that’s a little bit more difficult to do if you’re using a machine and this is a one-shot deal, all right, with those non-invasive machines. It’s usually a number of treatments and it ends up being about the same costs. Most liposuction procedures that we do in our office started about three thousand dollars right yeah most are under six thousand. So, it’s between depends on how much we’re removing and how many areas we’re doing. A lot more affordable I think than people think especially when you’re looking at CoolSculpting or the heat, you’re looking at spending the same because you have to do a series of like you know three to six. Well doctor I want to thank you so much for coming on this morning and educating us we could get that birth perfect summer body here on Fat Tuesday so for more information you can go online to perfectskinderm.com
Well, May is skin Cancer Awareness Month and joining us to talk about the importance of sunscreen is dermatologist Doctor Susan Schroeder from perfect skin dermatology. Thank you so much for joining us today. You know we were talking a little bit beforehand it. We kind of get, you know, our audience is probably pretty savvy knowing that at this point we need to protect ourselves against the sun. We’ve heard enough about it, but especially here in Colorado, right? Okay, well the number one thing is you, you, absolutely need it, there’s no, no, ifs, ands, or buts about that you know it is we sunscreen every time that there’s actually daylight out, you’re actually getting UV exposure. So, you think 5 minutes here 5 minutes there, there are no free calories in some in sun exposure, every single thing counting as a accumulative. Okay, but I know vitamin D is so good for our bodies though, yes. Are we still going to get that if we’re using that sunscreen, you know, like oh, Just a little bit of vitamin D first, you know Before I put my sunscreen on. You know, and I have so many patients that says, you know I, I’m not going to get vitamin D or I’m low in vitamin D and there is a synthesis in the skin that takes place where it converts that vitamin D to the state that we needed it and but we’re finding that studies show that if you use sunscreen, you’re not negating that at all. You’re not, you’re not causing that not to happen, but there are a couple things I wanted to say, you know people love being in the sun because I think it’s just pretty well accepted that you look healthier with tan, and you look like you’re in shape and feel better, feels good to lay in the sun. It even has some anti-inflammatory properties such as it’ll help clear acne and psoriasis. I shouldn’t be saying these things, but you know, there’s some things that are, we think are, are, good about it, but really, the negative points the sun exposure truly outweigh the bad because your risk of skin cancer is significantly increased as well as premature ageing. Right, and we don’t want to prematurely age. We don’t want skin cancer. That’s why we’re talking about it this month because it’s skin cancer awareness month. But you know, I grew up in Wisconsin, and I feel like the sun is a lot heavier here in Colorado. Do we have to worry about it, you know, being higher up in the mountains? It it absolutely is more difficult, we are I don’t know if you know this, but we are Number 2 and incidents for skin cancer, out of all of the US states. Hawaii is the only one vote ahead of us. That really surprises me, I thought Florida and California would be ahead of us, Yeah, but it’s because of our very sunny days, about 300 a year, and then our outdoor lifestyle and also the altitude and the higher up you are, the more UV exposure you’re actually going to receive. I think there’s some slides that may be circling through it, show that. Yeah, Oh yeah, they’re going to be popping up here, but so living in Colorado Springs a little over a mile, you’re going about 25 percent more UV exposure than you would if you were living at sea level Breckenridge, Vail, about 50 percent and if you’re climbing fourteeners, you’re getting 75 percent more exposure than you would at sea level. Oh my goodness. I know. Alright, scary. Right so what do you recommend to your patients, because I’m sure they want to get out there. They want to enjoy the sun. The fourteeners and all that stuff, but they should be worried about sunscreen as well, because, Right, they’re not all created equal, right, exactly and you know that that’s something that’s actually changed a little bit over the years. Traditional studies show that we should be using a 30 SPF sunscreen in all its exposed areas, and those studies that show that that was efficacious used a massive sunscreen that were so thick that nobody in real life would really do that. So as dermatologists we are recommending 50 at this point to use on a daily basis. Now if you’re like you or I we’re, we’re in the office all day and we’re just, you know, walking to the parking lot or going out to lunch in our breaks. Putting it on once, it’s fine, but if you’re outside a lot, if you’re hiking, if you’re skiing, if you’re doing things outdoors, you need to reapply every two hours because the sun does break it down. Okay, all right. Make sure to reapply. I always knew when you go in the water you need to reapply but you need to reapply, yes, even if you’re just, you know, just throughout the day because it’s breaking it down, right, We don’t have time to touch on wavelengths. Okay, so we’ll have to do a Facebook live unless do you, can you do it really quick, Yeah, I can. I wanted to talk about, I want to talk about, I want to talk about physical and chemical sunscreens because that’s a big deal right now in the in the News, Okay, there are some chemical sunscreens that are causing concern that they might be causing harm to. The coral reef and there are some studies that show that it shows up in body fluids, tissues of people and, and, it’s, it’s, alarming. We dealt with; the jury is really out on that. We don’t know that yet. It’s usually oxybenzone, but there are four different chemicals that. They’re looking at differences between two sunscreens are chemicals they absorb into your skin and then they neutralise the harmful effects of the rays, whereas physical sunscreens such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, they actually sit on the skin surface and they cause the rays to bounce off and so to be safe, yeah, it’s a better thing to use. That’s what the surface have, with the white nose. So well, to learn more about perfect skin dermatology, from our, at Doctor Susan Schroeder go online to perfectskinderm.com and she is always willing to explain this. That’s what I love about you. You know someone comes into the office and they have questions, you were always willing to take the time to talk to them. Thank you, So, thank you for coming on. Yeah, it is fun, alright, well now. Thank you. It’s fun.
Well aging does not have to be a dreaded process. It can be exciting especially when you have the right techniques to help you looking radiant and not a day older. Doctor Susan Schroeder is here this morning with a procedure that is all the talk and it’s a wonderful for wonderful thing for tightening skin looking younger and there’s not much downtime. So good morning doc thank you so much for joining. Good morning. So, tell us a little bit about this so it’s an it’s an energy device right so it’s unlike any other. That’s correct. So, we’ve had energy devices for about15, 16, 17, years. Thermage was the first one, for Thermage was radiofrequency and it was basically energy that was delivering to the skin, when it gets into the, the, deeper levels of the skin, it’s converted to heat. It denatures which kind of messes the collagen up a little bit so that it has to basically heal itself and produce more. Oh, okay so it’s encouraging your body to, to, do that okay but, right, things like that older, older, techniques that are 15 years old. Yeah, probably aren’t as gentle on your body, and I well and I had that a number of years ago. I was very excited about it and it was a little bit of a letdown and the reason what yeah because about 33% of patients really had a wow result and then another 33% of patients you’d look and if you looked at the before and afters, you’d say oh well I think I can see a difference but it really is it worth spending you know kind of money, Yeah, to do that and then the other third didn’t have any result at all and it’s very tough as a patient and also as a physician to not have any results. You feel like you failed and you did everything right but we couldn’t figure out why some people were responding and others were not, Okay, and then there were other ones that came along like Tighten, you may have heard of and symphony and the symphony uses UV no actually tighten I think as UV light to tighten and then and then Ul therapy is more recent which is ultrasound, it goes a little deeper but again I really feel that all of those were falling short. Okay, I’ve used many of them and I wasn’t impressed. Okay, so this one we’re talking tightening, Yes so, I think my stretch mark, yup, my maybe my arms at aren’t as muscular, yup. Used to be so we’re can we use this early, what does it do? So, you can use it there are FDA approvals for it and then there are other things that we do that are off-label. So the main place to use it is the neck and the lower face but you can also use it on the lower eyelids, you can use it on the forehead, you can do it on the arms and the elbows and the knees and the buttocks and yeah alright and we’ve got some pictures necklace yeah no this is one in treatment this is it Wow this is in place of like a lower neck lift or you know liposuction or something like that which you know convicted to be really invasive procedures this is the perfect bridge between fillers and Botox and a facelift and I’ve been looking for that and we do have other things like Lutronnic micro needling which is great for acne scarring, really good for a laxity the neck just kind of creepy texture, right, but this is a huge lifter and what’s so amazing about it the reason that it works so much better than everything else is that now after 17 years of research, we have determined that if you treat at 67 degrees Celsius and you do a long pulse, so I’m not talking one of those fraction of a section, second, section of a second I get what you are saying, second devices, it’s in your skin for three or four seconds, so that long pulse and always delivering at 67 degrees and these needles are bipolar. So, they’re recalibrating all the time in order to may always make sure that they’re delivering that device. You will double your collagen and you will increase the elastin, the elasticity of your skin by five times and no other devices even ever address, that before. Wow, so this is a game changer okay, all right so we saw some of these before-and-after treatments and we talked about the places that we could use it but you know what is what’s the downtime because that’s what always worries me when I think you know lasers or something like that an in-office procedure you’re looking at downtime or you know you’ve got some scars that you have to wait to heal, right ,what is this one, okay, well I had it about three and a half weeks ago, okay, so I’m still it takes about three months to see the results but I have no downtime, downtime, now but still nobody wouldn’t want anything for three and a half weeks that’s a long time. When I did it, I was swollen for the first and second day, okay, look on a plane with it I mean I wasn’t ridiculous it didn’t look like a monster but You did not look like sleepy right? Right exactly when I wake up, I think I have a little bit fooling like that right is that right looks like it’s nothing that anyone would notice. No, you’re not bloody you maybe a little bruised but that’s something that you can cover with makeup it’s usually just minor bruising, okay, and I would say by about eight days I looked pretty much back to normal, like I could go to a cocktail party and be okay with that, but it’ll keep tightening over three months and that’s when you see the final result that’s amazing. That’s six months, but actually but you’ll see a real result in three and then yeah. Three- and six-months wow. Yeah, doctor I want to thank you so much, and oh it last two to three years the other ones only less like a year to 18 months. Oh my gosh, this is a two- or three-year treatment, yes, and then most people at that point will get they’ll either go to a facelift, right, or they will get a smaller like a touch-up procedure with this profound. Well, I think if anyone is interested, they should definitely come and check it out so this segment is sponsored by perfect skin dermatology. So you can head to perfectskinderm.com for more information about profound like the doc has on her cut right here. It really is a great procedure if you’re looking for something that doesn’t have a lot of downtime. You’re tightening those areas it’s really great 17 years of technology come to fruition today. Well don’t go away because after the break.
Welcome back to living local. The time right now is 9 30 and most of us have heard this name by now but Botox, yeah, and did you know its origins, how it works, or the newer options, more contemporary treatments. Well, here to inform us all about it is Doctor Susan Schroeder and she joins us from perfect skin dermatology and we’re talking neurotoxins because Botox is a neurotoxin, right? Right, it is a neurotoxin. It’s derived from botulinum or Botulism. It would be the infection, but it’s only the toxin. It’s the toxin that is produced by the bacteria. So, you’re not actually putting bacteria or you know, infection into your skin. You’re just using the toxin that is actually toxic to the nerve endings, temporarily. Okay, so kind of like how we found penicillin, mouldy bread, you’re not eating the mould, you’re not making yourself sick, you know we’re just using you know piece of it to to cure something else, right? Absolutely, this has been around since 2000. Well, it’s been around since before 2000, but cosmetically, we’ve been having the we had the FDA approval in 2002 for it. It was interesting how so, how it actually spanned from a medical use to cosmetic. There is a husband-and-wife team, Alistair and Jean Carruthers, and they live in Vancouver, Canada and he’s a dermatologist, and she’s an ophthalmologist and I think it was a dinner one night. She came home and she was treating Buck Blepharospasm which is basically a twitching, it’s a voluntary and involuntary twitching of the eye with Botox and a patient had come back and said, can you feel a little bit more around here, because it really helps my wrinkles. She went home and told her dermatologist husband and that is how this transpired. That is so funny. Yeah, all right. But you know what we are showing another picture up here of something that isn’t Botox, so there’s more than just Botox on the market. Sure, right? Yeah no. So, Botox came out in 2002 and then we had Dysport very similar molecule and then we had Xeomin thereafter, and more recently in the last two months, we’ve had juvo. So, there are four different options. It’s sort of like Coke and Pepsi and RC Cola and Right? You know just different, your preference right, exactly okay, so is this is something that we normally think of to help with some wrinkles. But tell us kind of how it works because you don’t want to overdo it. You don’t want that surprise Jack Nicholson look, right? Right, Yeah, you know, so it was first FDA approved for the glabellar complex, which is basically the elevens, right here the frown lines but then we’ve started to expand its uses and we use it to relax the horizontal lines across the forehead, the crow’s feet. Those are the most common areas, the upper face, but we’ve had it for over 20 years, almost 20 years now and with time there is some atrophy that occurs if you keep treating those muscles over and over again and there tends to be when you have this area with few signs of ageing and the rest of the face is still ageing, there’s a disconnect. So many of us. That do use this on a regular basis are thinking about it differently and approaching it differently, and we’re doing less in those traditional areas, and we’re spreading it to other areas of the face to define a jawline to make you less square here, if that’s your preference, to treat lines in the neck to give you a little bit of an upturned lip, to really bring that whole more youthful face into focus. Right, Okay, and it’s, a more natural, a more natural look, and I’ve actually I’ve gotten it here you’ve actually given it to me here because I grind my teeth so much that my jaw muscle almost it almost hurts, so it’s not just right, Just cosmetic, right, Correct, I mean he started it said you know, for eye twitching, so it started with non-cosmetic but I mean I don’t think people realize that it can help with you, do it up here. Can help with headaches migraines, sweating, around here yes, in the armpits you do, yeah, it’s for sweating and then yeah, here, I mean you’ve, you’ve, saved me because, I was getting like ear pain. It was hurting so bad, but the thing about Botox is you don’t have to do too much, no, like you were saying, just a little bit, but there’s things called, you know, micro toxin and bro taxing for guys, exactly, yeah, Right, so you know, really you use it long enough and you get comfortable with it and it’s more like a paintbrush like if one eye is a little bit bigger than the other I can straighten that out, I can even up the eyebrows it gives you a new shape that way, we can, you know, define the jawline. There are all kinds of great things you can do with it but yeah, micro-Botox is or micro talk. Excuse me is where we really dilute out that that toxin and we give it to you in very fine blob at the surface of the skin and it changes your texture. It makes it more smooth. It makes your pores smaller, so yeah, yeah, and who doesn’t love that because as women in my family age, the pores right here become like craters. It just happens, alright, well, Doctor Schroeder, I want to thank you so much for your time this morning you know you are definitely an artist and you want to trust you know who is going to be using Botox on your face. I think you should definitely give Doctor Schroeder, a call. You can see that address is up there. If you want to give her a call at 719-4217. 132 Or you can also follow perfect skin dermatology on Facebook. Living look we’ll be right back after the break.
Microneedling is something, it’s a procedure that is designed to induce new collagen formation and to remodel the skin. It’s, it’s, great for acne scarring for people that are worried that their students becoming more dull. It’s a little more LAX. They’re losing collagen. They’re developing wrinkles. People that have what we call dyschromia or brown spots and just a discoloration of the skin. It’s good for that as well. This is a procedure that, as I said, it’s been out for about 10-15 years. So, in this instance we developed, we delivered PRP platelet rich plasma, which contains which is activated growth factors and it will, in addition to making those micro channels to deliver those products, you’re actually causing controlled damage, which causes your skin to activate, healing cascades, healing processes, and lay down new collagen. It’s a controlled remodelling. So, most people will see some improvement with just one. You’ll see a brightening of the skin, more of a glowy complexion, smoother complexion, but it just depends on how much remodelling you want to do. People that are really trying to reduce wrinkles or acne scarring will want to do three or four perhaps once a month or so, so to get to induce those, those, changes. Those changes will continue for six months after treatment. The, the, skin will continue to remodel. We do have patients that love the results that are happy with the way they turned out with the micro needling and then they will do one treatment maybe once a year or every six months just for maintenance.
Mia Atkins started a dermal infusion treatment at perfect skin dermatology which exfoliates and extracts and infuses your skin let’s check back in with her this last time and see how glowing her skin is, hey Mia, hey Maria yeah, I’ve got kind of a calming mask on now because the, the, process is done and I’m feeling pretty good but all right if you guys get easily grossed out, look away from your screen right now because we’ve got a jar of everything that came out of my skin. Did you see that, this is the waste jar, oh my god, so when, when, she’s doing that on my skin everything is going into this jar right here? Right, right. So, it’s it is a little bit of vitamin C. So, it’s going to be a little yellow but it’s cloudy. So that’s just all the debris that we that’s come off of your skin. Wow, okay so that was a pretty fast process so tell me a little bit about you know the time that you need to a lot for coming in here or the dermal infusion and just how and I mean how it all works. So, this could be done over lunchtime obviously I would say 45 minutes maybe an hour if you really, really, leisurely, but the actual treatment takes about 25 30 minutes or so. Yeah, it was really fast. Yeah, and so people want to know how often to do these things they’re great right before an event like high school graduation or a special date or a black-tie event but we do have a lot of patients that do them monthly, that they come in I have something called a VIP a VI Club, VIP club, excuse me and this is one of the things that you can choose as part of that Club monthly, oh wow, house you can come in and get something every month. Exactly, so the price of this is a hundred and seventy-five dollars but if you’re doing the VIP club it is less expensive. That’s amazing, Yeah, okay and so you’re saying like for the upkeep of people are going to come in and do these regularly, it was like four to six weeks that this can, exactly, kind of last and the results will show? You’re going to have major hydration and glowing for about three days but it is going to last for a couple of weeks. So, we actually see 70 percent improvement in hydration and plumpness of your skin, Wow, after this treatment for and for 72 hours after and then after that it starts to wane a little bit.

Okay, sure, so this is Alisa. Hello and this is the silk peel dermal, dermal infusion machine and Alisa has handpiece there. As I was saying, it’s not these loose crystals that we’re using. We are using these little diamond phrase tips. You can’t see it I know it’s a little too small, but it’s basically a tip. These are sterilizable and they have diamond chips in them, so very fine diamond dust and their different levels this some are for a more sensitive skin and some are for more aggressive treatment so those are put on the end of that. Alright, Alright, and then what we do, I am going to, okay, and then what we have also here is that different from a regular microdermabrasion, we actually infuse different solutions into the skin and we customise this. So today let’s so we’re doing a customization of first, we’re going to do a hydrating serum, yes, I have very very dry skin and then the vitamin C, and we are going to do Vitamin C after that, but we also do, for instance, for acne we do uh oral clarifier, which actually really cleans out your pores, and we have a skin brightener which is great for people that want to you know, reduce wrinkles, give the skin if their skin looks dull, it gives them a more bright appearance, okay, and so, while we’re doing this for lack of a better word, sanding exfoliation, we’re also infusing this into this, perfect, all right, So we’re running out of time here, so why don’t we get it started a little bit and show everyone how it works, and then we’re going to be checking in throughout the show to see how it’s going so then you just start up the machine here and then, and I will start off with your neck, you start with the neck, okay, and I do one pass, okay, This is very interesting.

Right, so you’re going to be having a dermal infusion, and most people know about microdermabrasion, which is basically saying it’s sandblasting your skin, gently. It’s aluminium oxide crystals that propelled against your skin and then sucked up. What you’re doing is a HydraFacial, which is just the new generation of microdermabrasion. We don’t use those crystals, it’s more of a fine diamond grid that has different, different, levels of intensity and then we also infuse special nutrients into your skin to really improve it, not just using that. Alright, we’re going to get started on that right when we come back and you’ll tell us a little bit more. I’m going to go get prepped and ready and when we come back.

Welcome back to living local everybody time right now 9:18 a.m. And you know what North America holds the largest share on anti-aging market. Nearly 60 percent of the global market in 2014 that’s right the US population spent over eight point five billion dollars on cosmetic procedures. As far as products sold to combat age fifty percent of the products but are related to anti-wrinkle solutions. So anti-aging big big business and there are a lot of products on the market claiming to keep you looking young but it’s a virtual jungle out there isn’t it so who do you believe which product is the best for you why you know you should you buy the most expensive one. Can you tell fact from fiction if it’s actually going to work well Doctor Susan Schroeder is from perfect skin dermatology is here to fill us in on what we need to know? There are a lot of products
So, it’s but it’s wonderful that you’re here to kind of like
Sorry we just
Oh, that’s okay, our table. Kind of lead us through like what we what we need to know. So, I guess, let’s just start out with
You know what when patients come to you, you, know what are they what are they looking for
So this is my, my, job is to weed out what really works and what doesn’t
Because it is very confusing and so patients often bring things in and then we go through them and I say this is good you can keep this this needs to be different and you know here’s why and so I’d like to really break it down for them and usually a good rule of thumb is if you can buy it over the counter, it might be a good moisturizer or cleanser
But it may not be potent enough to really give you the anti-aging effects that you’re looking for
We all want to combat aging you can do it from the inside but sometimes just genetics and you know the carcinogens in in the atmosphere, it’s going to happen, we’re going to get wrinkles. So are there any you know what should we be using and let’s start off like let’s
Let’s take a look at what’s in what’s on the table and kind of talk people through this
Because there’s moisturizers there’s some retinoids and
Now that’s all confusing for everybody
Okay so to break it down easily there are basically four components to what you should be using on your skin
For anti-aging. Okay, it should be a sunscreen and we’re going to talk a little bit about that
An antioxidant or retinoid and then something that’s going to induce collagen in your skin and in addition to the retinoids
Right because as we get older, we’re losing collagen
That’s why our faces are not looking is as tight and perky
After the age of 30 you, you, lose 1 percent average of your collagen a year in this day okay
Oh, so sad but we can combat it
But we can combat it, okay so you did mention sunscreen
Why should we be wearing sunscreen?
Okay so sunscreen is cumulative and I like to say there are no free calories and sunscreen. Every single way that you that reaches your skin is going to be registered and over time it causes photo damage
So a good rule of thumb is I have a lot of patients that cover and say well I asked them are you are you using sunscreen well yeah, if I’m in the Sun well guess what if there’s daylight out, you’re in the Sun
So even if you’re driving in the car putting your shade down it’s still shining in your face that’s
UV exposure penetrates glass
You know any time you’re actually unless you’re a vampire you’re going to be getting sun exposure
Wow I am not
But, but, will you recommend now is dermatologists usually say now it used to be 30 SPF, it’s 50 SPF
And you’d would be on a mineral sunscreen. So that’s titanium dioxide and zinc oxide and now we also recommend infrared protection because infrared which is actually heat is something that simulates pigments of pathway, pathway pigment
We talked about this because I was getting those patches of my skin so
We got a sunscreen that I can put on so when I’m getting the heat from you know the washing machine or not for the washing machine for the dishwasher or from the from the kitchen
Or from the exercising let’s see
Exactly, exactly, alright we had we
One minute let’s get on to these I’m
I use these and these are what you called antioxidants right?
No, no, this is the antioxidant that looks very similar
So this is what my favourite antioxidant is vitamin C what you’re looking for in vitamin C is a high concentration so about a twenty to thirty percent and it needs to be in an active state. So high up on the ingredient list, list, it needs to say ascorbic acid or tetra decal hexyl sulphate sorry so
Not going to remember that
That’s okay look under seven natural, the seven things or our blog
Exactly so you know what we do we do have to wrap it up but we had some more stuff to go over I know I use this and it made my feet in my skin and feel like
Collagen inducer elastin best on market and then the other thing is a retinoid. You can either use a retinoid we run no excuse me like a retina or a Retinoin a restore see product this is the one that I use it’s called Alpharetta penetrates really well and it’s very good for sensitive skin. Both of these are.
So these are wonderful and I have I’ve used to these I’ve had a sample of this I’ve used this and it’s, it’s, so absolutely wonderful because this stuff didn’t make my skin feel like silk, but you break it down for everybody on your blog on your website
Okay so for more information go online to perfectskinderm.com and look for that blog their information is up on the screen and the segment has been sponsored by perfect skin dermatology.
Welcome back to living local, time right now 917 a.m. And last month, we were talking about the four essential components of an effective skin anti-aging regime. So, what we learned is that, after the age of 30 we lose an average of about 1 percent of our collagen each year. So, there’s more though because after menopause women lose about 30% of skins collagen in the next 5 years and then after that about 2.1 percent per year. So, what do we do? We’ve got hormone replacement therapy diet exercise I don’t know so Doctor Susan Schroder is back to tell us all about a brand-new way to fight this decline, right?
Ok all right, so what happens because you know we were talking about after 30, you lose the skin collagen but then after menopause it seems like almost like the hormones kind of adjust things like that
Right yes so you know there are various symptoms that you start to notice in your skin when your estrogen declines and the first thing is hydration, your skin because we’re dry and moisturizers just don’t work as well as they used is that’s the first thing I usually see and then we also see just our scares a little bit more saggy than it was before and it’s more thin and it’s fragile and also we lose some of the glow of our skin and when we were younger and it’s just more it’s less excuse me it’s less luminous than it used to be
Okay so I bet everyone out there is wondering how can we slow this process down I mean a thing you’re going to age, it’s just it comes with life, but how do we how do we slow that down?
Okay with a brand-new product on the market there’s nothing else like that and it’s, it’s, the first of its kind it contains an ingredient that’s called MEP and it mimics the effects of estrogen but it’s not estrogen, it’s not a hormone at all and there are no side effects of estrogen replacement that go along with the use of these products. It’s applied directly to the areas that we want to treat and it just makes you look like your estrogen is back to normal
So, what is it this?
Oh my gosh
It’s called alcohol and there to products their two products. One is a serum that you can use day and night and the other one is a thicker night cream.
Oh my gosh okay so it doesn’t have the hormones in it so it’s not affecting you know the menopause or any of the hormones in your body, right?
Right exactly so there’s no what is it mimics estrogen in the skin but it’s not estrogen
And this is laughing good for people that that can’t but are worried about the side effects of estrogen replacement
The biggest contraindication for women is that if you have a prior history of breast cancer, hormones if you add them back, they can up regulate a tumour or you know cause a cancer to grow and other side effects of hormone replacement can be dry eyes in women you can lose your sense of smell and taste
You can last hearing I know my kids think that is. I just think they mumble but you know so and then also you can also have problems with what is the other thing, sorry
That’s okay they also
Gall stones is the other thing Oh what you don’t want does it right yeah so none of these this is not going to do anything but just give you back what estrogen would do for your skin
Okay so this is just then it you say it’s Mappelle it that’s how you say it, and this is your, your, daily cream so it’s a little bit lighter
And then at night you could put on something that’s a little bit thicker
Right so its
Can I touch it
Oh yeah sure go ahead
Oh, that’s a smooth
So it’s going to come out and go on and feel like nothing
Right so you put this on under if you’re using any of the other products that we were talking about you can put this on under and then also under makeup on sunscreen
How do you how do you, it’s like a veil like I so smooth
And this is a thicker cream so right
This doesn’t even feel like that thick it feels nice
It’s nice its moisturising, yeah
Oh my gosh so this will help us get back that glow that we’re losing and we’re losing that estrogen it’s mimicking that estrogen but it is not putting hormones in our body because it doesn’t have that estrogen
So, I don’t have to worry about those side effects that come with hormone replacement therapy
Correct and there’s nothing else in the market like this Mappelle is that
Oh my gosh alright new so how can we you know get a hold of you and maybe learn more about this and maybe some other anti-aging things because you know, it’s a little not everyone but sometimes it’s nice to get a little refresh a little Botox just a little bit
You can go to our website www.perfectskin.com or call us at seven one nine four seven four two one seven one three two excuse me
You know that’s okay
I wanted to say one more thing about this if we have a little time
Oh, we tend we definitely do
Okay good so you know where does this fit in to everything else that we talked about?
Exactly it’s like oh I don’t know what to use there’s so many
Right with the antioxidants the retinoids
Collagen inducers the sunscreen well of course you should always be using your sun screen
If you’re like myself or Cheryl our office manager, we’re probably on you know more parks than 99% you know not everybody’s going to want to do that
Okay and actually, this is a great way for somebody who just wants to kind of dip their toe into anti-aging products because
Not only does it have this estrogen mimicking product or component
But it also has this one has some vitamin C in it
Oh that’s good
And some niacin amide which decreases inflammation in your skin and then this one has some retinol in it. So you can’t it’s not in the concentrations that we talked about with the other products
But it’s something
Like you said dipping your toe into the into the products into the new night cream you know I always see these funny memes and it’s like if you wore shoes like this or if you liked this TV show when you were younger, it’s time for a night cream or an eye cream
So, you know dip our toe in this come check it out. It’s at your store so our units at your locations at your office
So if people want to come check it out I know that you’re so good at educating everyone and you know just kind of letting them know what options are out there what no matter their budget right
