We all want perfect skin. Most of us will do just about anything to get it. We apply large doses of creams and serums and try the newest treatments at the doctor’s office. Here are Dr. Tanne’s recommendations for some of the best treatments and products to get that flawless complexion.
This procedure is amazing. I mean ahhhh-maz-ing. Microneedling uses tiny needles to create micro-channels for smoother tighter skin. We pair this with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), which uses your own blood’s growth factors to stimulate new cell and collagen growth. “I have seen enlarged pores and acne scars virtually disappear”, says Susan Stevens Tanne, MD. One treatment will give you desirable results. The procedure is comfortable and non-invasive, not to mention a lot friendlier on the wallet than laser treatments.

Something you can do every night to stop the aging process without spending a lot of money and time in a doctor’s office? Yes please! Why every woman is not on a retinol product is beyond me. This stimulates cell turnover…CELL TURNOVER! That means it takes away the dull, wrinkled, gross dead skin on the surface and replaces it with softer newer, younger looking skin. A gentle but potent blended retinol like our plush.md Enriched Retinol Serum will give you softer tighter skin after just a month of use.
How good does a nice non-surgical brow lift sound? If you said YES, then get in for one of our “better than Botox” Dysport or Xeomin treatments ASAP. Not only do these products soften the forehead and Crow’s feet, but they prevent extreme movement in those area for future wrinkle prevention.
Neuromodulators are purified proteins that are injected into facial muscles, causing relaxation of the muscle. This relaxes the pull on the skin, which relaxes the wrinkles. Neuromodulators are a great first step into the world of non-invasive cosmetic procedures. I mean who wants to be the only woman at brunch not talking about how good their Botox/Dysport/Xeomin looks?
Anyone who has ever walked through our front door has gotten the “sunscreen speech”. You already know the sun causes 80% of aging. You know that a DESIGNATED layer needs to be applied daily and even though it says your make-up or day cream contains sunscreen, it still isn’t enough to prevent hyperpigmentation, skin sagging, and wrinkles. How many of you have those three skin conditions on your bucket list? I didn’t think so. The bottom line is as much as we love to see you in the office, we’d rather have you doing one simple extra step in your skin care routine every day and come in less and less for anti-aging treatments.
Proper hydration plays such an important role when it comes to your skin. Hydration, both internally and externally, are important, and without it, skin lacks plumpness and dewiness—plus, lines, wrinkles and other imperfections become amplified. Yes, excellent moisturizers are always important. “Our plush.md Quench hyaluronic acid serum is my favorite”, says Susan Stevens Tanne, M.D. However, it doesn’t make sense to be apply moisturizer over the skin if your body itself is not hydrated. That’s why you need to drink plenty of water, too.
One of the best ways to keep skin looking fresh and youthful while hindering the damage caused by environmental factors is by wearing an antioxidant every single day. Although there are many to choose from—everything from plant-based antioxidants to synthetic ones, and even those that are extracted from vitamins—it’s important to find one that’s compatible with your skin. Dr. Tanne recommends that her patients use a strong antioxidant serum such as her plush.md Power C, which contains a potent 20% Vitamin C, on clean, dried skin.
