Anne Wegner Interview for Women Magazine

Fox Valley Plastic Surgery – Renaissance MediSpa Oshkosh

What’s the best thing a woman can do for her skin?

Women are exposed on a daily basis to factors that can cause changes in the skin. These included stress-related changes, hormonal changes, premature aging and exposure to the elements.

The best thing we can do for ourselves and everyone else we influence would be to take a few minutes in the morning and evening to take care for our skin.

Effective home skin care begins with advanced products that work in concert at the cellular level and are based on principles of correction and stimulation. Use of proper products for your skin type will optimize results and will give a soft, smooth glow to your skin. Healthy skin is the window to your inner beauty.


What is the biggest mistake women make with their skin?

The biggest mistake women make with their skin is thinking that “more is better.”

This can be related to products, makeup and treatments. A delicate balance can be achieved by protecting our natural skin barrier found in the epidermis.

Skin dryness is one cause of barrier breakdown. Aging is another cause of skin barrier breakdown.

We need to follow guidelines when exfoliating. Using suitable amounts of skin products for different skin types prevents weakening of the skin barrier function.

Less is always better when applying makeup. Makeup applied properly will enhance your skin rather than covering your skin.


What’s your favorite skin treatment and why?

Honestly, I do not have a favorite skin treatment. Instead I can say I choose the treatment best suited for the client (patient).

In our medical spa we offer Glo Therapeutic 30 percent glycolic and La Roche 30 percent glycolic as chemical exfoliators. Glycolic is believed to be the most effective alpha hydroxyl acid due to its small molecular size.

The result is that fine lines are minimized, texture is smoothed and hydration is increased. The skin is radiated with a healthy, youthful glow.

Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation process that rejuvenates the skin by using fine crystals and vacuuming. Microdermabrasion can be used as a primary treatment, or for optimal results it can be used with other noninvasive treatments such as chemical exfoliators and intense pulsed-light phototherapy.

Dermaplaning is a technique that can be done on its own or in conjunction with all the above treatments. Dermaplaning removes dead surface cells to allow for better penetration of home products and smoother application of makeup. This may be my favorite.


What’s a good way to determine what type of moisturizer and makeup to use?

A Visia complexion analysis is available at our medical spa.

This computer analyses your skin and calculates the amount of oil in your skin. This is a great tool for the aesthetician to use as she determines which moisturizer would benefit you the most.

Makeup is chosen by color matching the skin tone. Glo Mineral Makeup provides a mineral makeup line that delivers UV protection, pharmaceutical-grade ingredients, and antioxidant benefits while incorporating the latest beauty innovations in a classic and stylish color palette.
