As you age and your skin incurs the abuse of daily living (such as sun, stress, pollution), the cell turnover rate slows down. New cells take longer to form and you begin to notice those unwelcome signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles, freckles and age spots, uneven skin tone, loss of elasticity and loss of natural skin hydration.
Our physician grade skin care products are the most effective products on the market to address your skin care concerns. We offer the best of many brands, and will recommend items across product lines in order to provide the best results for your skin condition. Some of the brands that we are carry are described below. Our products offerings are constantly being tweaked as more effective technologies are being developed. Stop by the Renaissance Medispa to see our newest products.View All Videos
The ALASTIN Skincare product line helps prepare and increase skin receptivity to procedures as well as enhancing the healing process in order to optimize the overall procedure result. The products are also designed to combat the signs of aging, and improve and maintain skin health with daily use.
Anti-aging treatments such as laser and fillers benefit from an Alastin “skin bed preparation” to remove the old and compromised cells to create an environment ideal for healing and regeneration. Ideally this skin bed preparation or pre-conditioning takes place over a 2-3 week period prior to the procedure.
We strongly recommend the purchase of Alastin® TriHex Transition Duo $245 to prep your face for a procedure, support healing, and maintain the outcome. It is available at a 20% discount with an advanced resurfacing or filler purchase. The TriHex Transition Duo includes a full-size Regenerating Skin Nectar® for use pre- and post-procedure and a transition-size Restorative Skin Complex for ongoing skin maintenance, in an easy-to-use Duo pack. Patients may purchase these products online, but online pricing can be different.

This product worked so well that we now offer it to our patients recovering from laser treatments. We recommend Dermaka Cream to minimize bruising and inflammatory responses of the skin.

While it is available on Amazon.com for $32, we sell it in the office for $29 as a convenience to our patients.

Get longer, darker and fuller lashes with Latisse. Latisse™ (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03% is the first prescription treatment approved by the FDA for inadequate or not having enough eyelashes, growing them longer, fuller and darker. Latisse™ is easy to use and effective. It is a once-a-day treatment applied topically to the base of the upper eyelashes. Patients in a clinical trial saw results gradually over time (starting at 4 weeks with full results after 16 weeks).
Latisse is a prescription medication and not a cosmetic. As such, it contains isopropyl cloprostenate, which was originally used on glaucoma patients with the side effect of longer and stronger eyelashes. This synthetic prostaglandin analog can also have these side effects: dry eye, irritation, inflammation, redness, iris color change, macular edema, and low intraocular pressure.
