Young or old, there is no better time for you to embrace skin care that actually promotes healthy skin! Active skin care products are a part of your investment in achieving healthy, rejuvenated skin, as they contain highly active ingredients that can encourage the regular turnover of skin cells as well as repairing, nourishing and rebuilding resilience. With active skin care, we can improve and correct your concerns, including a range of skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, pigmentation and ageing.

How do active skin care products work?

Active skin care products contain concentrated levels of active ingredients such as Vitamin A and C, as well as gentle acids and antioxidants – significant enough to bring about cellular change within the skin and are used to improve and correct skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, pigmentation and ageing. These highly active ingredients can encourage the regular turnover of skin cells as well as repairing, nourishing and rebuilding resilience.

What we don’t use also makes a difference, as our products do not contain common skin irritants such as propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulphate or artificial fragrances, to name a few.

Over the counter products, often called cosmetics are sold and often found in supermarkets, department stores and online. They contain minimal active ingredients and are safe to use for almost all skin types. They look and smell lovely but are primarily formulated for the experience, not the outcome. In summary, lovely to use with minimal skin benefits. Carly, Dermal Clinician

Here at My Genesis in Canberra, we stock Aspect Dr skin care products. These ranges are active and formulated to restore skin function, calm inflammation, re-balance and correct skin conditions. They are designed to create change without trauma.

What can I expect from active skin care products?

High quality skin care forms the foundation required for the correction of skin disorders, skin rejuvenation and re-conditioning of the skin. With consistent and long term use, adjusting your program as required, you will start to see improvements for specific skin conditions you may have and general improvements in your complexion.

We also use products within the clinic for prepping and recovery of the skin prior to and after facial surgery. We know from experience that a well prepared and supported skin will allow you to achieve the best possible treatment and surgical outcomes while also maintaining these results.

Am I a suitable candidate for active skin care products?

A full comprehensive skin analysis is the best way to get started to determine which active skin care products will be suitable and most beneficial to your skin type and condition.

The consultation will take approximately one hour with one of our Dermal Clinicians or Dermal Therapists (Dermal Specialists), and the charge for this service is a very worthwhile investment of $100.

During your consultation your Dermal Specialist will:

  • discuss your concerns with you
  • examine and assess the health and current condition of your skin
  • develop a personalised treatment plan including a tailored skin care regime designed to meet your specific concerns, lifestyle and budget
  • provide an estimate of costs and time required to complete your treatment program

Are there any complementary products to consider?

The use of sunscreen is the most important product in your skincare regime. It protects the skin from both UVA and UVB damage which reduces the risk of developing skin cancer as well as premature ageing. It is also an imperative part in maintaining treatment results . My Genesis stocks several sun protection products that your Dermal Specialist can recommend to suit your skin and lifestyle.

It is also important to consider the makeup you are using as it contributes to your skins condition overall, affecting its health and hindering your results. We recommend researching and evaluating the ingredients within your foundation, blushers and lipstick. Examples of ingredients to avoid are talc, artificial dyes and fragrances. We stock Aspect Minerals range of cosmetics at My Genesis that can be colour matched by one of our team.

What can I expect regarding results?

Once you start using active skin care products you may start to see results within a few weeks but most improvements will be more gradual over several months. Throughout your journey, your Dermal Specialist will ensure your products continue to provide optimal results, adjusting and changing them as your skin improves or your needs change.

To enhance your results and support your skin consider that your skin is an external reflection of how our bodies are functioning internally. An unhealthy diet and harmful lifestyle habits place unnecessary stress on our bodies affecting our skin. Whilst we specifically treat the skin and are committed to achieving results bear in mind that other factors may be contributing to your concern and will need to be addressed.

Active Skin Care Risks

While not expected, active skin care products can result in:

  • contact dermatitis
  • allergic reaction
  • dryness
  • flakiness
  • redness
  • breakouts
  • sensitivity

What is the approximate price range?

Our products range in price from $20 to $200. It’s important to know that skincare doesn’t need to be expensive, just effective. Our range of Aspect Dr products are active and concentrated, with only a small amount needed each application.

The investment you make in your skin is worthwhile for the longer term improvements and healthy complexion you will gain.
