More Americans than ever
are getting cosmetic treatments – in fact, there were over 17 million
treatments in 2018 alone according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. That’s an increase of 163% over the last 20
years (compared to 2000). As cosmetic treatments increase, it’s important to
make sure you’re trusting the right Providers to help guide you on the best
regimen for your skin type and goals.
Your Skin Care Priorities
You’ll want to start by
making a list of any problem areas, concerns, or issues you’ve had with your
skin. By sharing these items with your experienced Skin Care Provider, we’re
able to help recommend the best medical and cosmetic treatments. Unlike some medical
spas, we have Board-Certified Dermatologists who are onsite and oversee our
practice, so you know you’re in the right hands.
Some questions to ask
- Are you worried about
looking tired or showing signs of aging?
- What are your short-term
and long-term skin care goals?
- Do you have any big
events coming up in the next year or two?
- Is your daily skin care
regimen working for you?
You’ll want to make sure you’re getting your annual skin exam, which gives your Provider the opportunity to identify potential issues or discuss items you may want to address (this can also help identify potential skin cancer warning signs earlier).
for Your Skin Care
In addition to picking
the right dermatology practice, there are ways to help keep costs manageable
when caring for your skin. Especially as we get older, our skin needs a little
help to stay hydrated, get rid of acne, and keep wrinkles at bay.
Whatever your skin care regimen may
be, scheduling and planning it in advance can help you maximize your time and
investment. Work with one of our expert Providers at Vitalogy Skincare to
develop your custom plan.

treatments can add up, if you love your BOTOX Cosmetic or other injectables as much as some of us do, you’ll want to
find ways to save when possible. (Of course, you do want to make sure you are
using a talented professional and have Dermatologists overseeing the practice
like Vitalogy Skincare does.)
For instance, you can
sign up for Brilliant Distinctions — Allergan’s reward program that lets you earn
points and discounts on treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic. There are also
specials throughout the year, like National BOTOX Cosmetic Day, which will be held annually on the third Wednesday
in November. Make sure to mark your
calendar for it to line up great savings.
on the Right Treatments
Your Skin Care Provider
can help you figure out what the right treatments and products are based on
your skin concerns and what you’re looking to achieve. Since there’s no one-size-fits-all
skin solution, we recommend scheduling a consultation to discuss concerns, get
questions answered and to help you customize a plan.
