Prescription Skin Care

If your skin will not respond to over-the-counter or medical-grade solutions recommended to you by Dr. Clayman, the next step may be to consider medical grade prescription skin care. During a personal consultation at Dr. Clayman’s Surgery Center & Miracle Spa, you can discuss the issues you’re experiencing with your skin, and determine whether a prescription medication would provide your desired results.

Dr. Clayman will perform an examination to better understand the extent of your concerns, and depending on your unique skin care needs, he can recommend the prescription medication that’s right for you. You will also learn the best ways to apply topical prescription skin care products, and how to incorporate them into your current routine. Prescription skin care can make a significant difference when you’re trying to permanently correct or eliminate skin issues.

Latisse

Having long and full eyelashes is not only a cosmetic concern, but also a medical one. Whether through genetics, aging, makeup use, or stress, your eyelashes can begin to thin and affect your appearance and even your vision, since eyelashes also serve as a filter to keep debris from getting into your eyes.

Latisse is available by prescription only, and is designed to restore eyelash growth along the upper lash line. Applying Latisse is simple, only requiring that you use a small applicator brush to lightly paint the base of your lashes.

Although the FDA-approved treatment process is gradual, with continued use, you will notice fuller, longer and darker lashes within several weeks.

Tretinoin

Fine lines, wrinkles, and irritating acne can impact your skin as you continue to get older. Plenty of over-the-counter skin creams and acne medications are available, but many are not strong enough to tackle stubborn problem areas.

Dr. Clayman may recommend and prescribe one of two available Tretinoin dosages as a topical acne treatment and as a remedy for fine lines, wrinkles, and coarse skin texture. Tretinoin is derived from vitamin A, and works to turn over skin cells to produce fresh, smooth, acne-free skin. Tretinoin also reduces scarring and, in combination with sunscreen, can repair skin texture.

During a consultation, Dr. Clayman can examine your skin and determine whether topical treatment with tretinoin is right for you. Depending on your experience with acne, the extent of your aging, and your experience with other treatment methods, you may benefit from a prescription-strength product.

Hydroquinone

Skin pigmentation is a cosmetic concern for many patients. Whether due to melasma, sun damage, hormone medicine, acne scarring, or other factors, dark patches can begin to appear and remain on the skin. Hyperpigmentation can take away from the smooth skin texture you are trying to achieve, but prescriptions like hydroquinone can address those concerns.

Hydroquinone is a topical skin lightening cream often used in conjunction with tretinoin that decreases the overproduction of melanin. For freckles, age and liver spots, and other dark patches, hydroquinone can even your skin tone and help you look more refreshed. You can talk to Dr. Clayman about your particular skin care concerns and determine whether hydroquinone will work for you.
