Custom Skin Care Regime with PEAU

Even before my first visit to PEAU Esthétique Medicale, I knew I wanted to improve my skin’s appearance and health. I’m quite careful with the products I use and my sun exposure but even with all of my good work, I have still felt that my skin’s appearance has not been at its best recently. Between my hormones changing due to pregnancy, the harsh Canadian winter, and general aging, my skin has been in desperate need of some tender love and care.

To kick off my role as an ambassador for the amazing PEAU, I first met with the esteemed Dr. Khanna to chat about what skin and body issues I wished to address. After attentively listening to my concerns and goals, he offered his expert advice and counsel on how to best and –  very importantly – realistically achieve my desired results. He also created a custom treatment plan that is perfectly tailored to my specific needs. Since improving my skin health and appearance was a main concern, this is the first aspect of my treatment plan that we decided to begin with. To get a clear picture of just what type of condition my skin was in, a VISIA Skin Complexion Analysis was preformed. This highly advanced imaging tool utilizes specialized technology to show the surface and subsurface of your face. It is a unique system provides the most complete set of data and visual representation of the condition of your skin. VISIA takes an unequaled look at:

 Spots (imperfections and irregularities)

Wrinkles (furrows, folds or creases in the skin)

Texture (an analysis of skin smoothness)

Pores (the circular surface openings of sweat gland ducts)

UV spots (red or brown spots below the surface of the skin)

Brown spots (lesions on the skin such as hyper-pigmentation, freckles, lentigines, and melasma)

Red areas (represent a variety of conditions, such as acne, inflammation, rosacea or spider veins)

Porphyrins: bacterial excretions that can become lodged in pores

 By analyzing these eight key points, Dr. Khanna was able to create the skincare component of my bespoke plan. He determined that a series of BBL (Broad Band Light) treatments would be perfect to address my sun damage, redness, and hyper pigmentation. A brand new at home skin care regime was also crafted for me to ready my skin for my upcoming BBL treatments and to improve and maintain my skin health daily. PEAU carries a curated selection of skincare products and makeup, one of them being ZO Skin Health by Zein Obagi MD. By looking at my skin condition and health, Dr. Khanna recommend a series of ZO products that I’ve seriously fallen in love with. Admittedly, there are a few extra steps beyond the typical face wash and moisturizer routine but I’ve seen a marked improvement in my skin’s outward appearance. Even Darling Husband and my friends have noticed my improved complexion. I’ve detailed the exact products I’m using below, but it’s important to keep in mind that everyone’s skin is different and has specific needs. I highly recommend booking an appointment for your own VISIA Skin Complexion Analysis at PEAU to see just what your skin care needs are, and the best products and treatments to address them.
