Dr. Applebaum's Skin Care Philosophy
In addition to being an acclaimed plastic surgeon, Dr. Applebaum is an expert in creating beauty. He is a firm believer that healthy skin is the foundation of any beauty routine. To help his patients properly nurture their skin, he has developed a simple-yet-effective skin care philosophy: nourish, moisturize, protect and treat. Through this four-part approach, Dr. Applebaum teaches his patients how to use diet, moisturizers, sunscreen and treatment products to keep their skin vibrant and glowing.
Drawing from his twenty years of experience and continual search for the latest in skin care innovation, Dr. Applebaum crafts custom skin care solutions that consist of both in-office treatments and effective at-home skin care programs that work synergistically to brighten and restore beautiful skin. Because each patient's skin undergoes a unique aging process due to varying environmental and biologic factors, Dr. Applebaum synthesizes multiple anti-aging ingredients to target different causes of aging skin.
A renowned beauty expert, Dr. Applebaum has offered guidance on skin care, makeup and beauty topics on the Appleblog
, The Huffington Post and The Blonde and the Brunette, and is developing an innovative series of how-to beauty courses that outline everything from busting Botox myths to creating the perfect eyebrow arch. To see some of the products Dr. Applebaum recommends, please visit our products page
How long does it take for topical skin care treatments to work to show visible improvement on the skin?
|Frequently Asked Questions
Depending on its strength and the frequency of use, an at home skin care formula can create visible improvement in 2-4 weeks.
What types of results can I expect after using a home treatment skin care program for 6-8 weeks?
If the home treatment skin care program has high concentrations of good active ingredients such as antioxidants, exfoliating agents and plant botanicals, one can expect improvement in fine lines and the reduction of unwanted skin pigments. Overall, your skin should look younger and brighter.
| Is there any value in buying expensive skin moisturizers?
Moisturizers function to provide hydration and protection against the environmental harshness on your skin. In general, they do not have anti-aging or skin brightening potential. My recommendation is to find a moisturizer that hydrates and feels good on your skin and does not cause irritation or breakouts.
