Unless you’re a Dalmatian puppy, spots are not cute. Humans aren’t born with spots-so if you have them, what to do? Take it to a professional skincare company that has been treating spots for more than 30 years. DermAesthetics Beverly Hills treats spots every day. How do they win “Best of Spot-less?” We asked Lincoln Lee, Director of DBH.
“There are several ways we tackle spots (or excess pigmentation) on the skin”, says Lee. ”We treat it with both professional treatments (performed by an aesthetician) and self care routine (done by the client at-home)
A consultation by an professional aesthetician is best. At this time, the aesthetician can evaluate your level of excess pigmentation and the best way to address. Also, DBH professional treatments contain concentrated, powerful ingredients that are not available to the general public.
#2-Self Care Treatments
Utilizing a holistic approach to your skin care products at-home will maximize the time and results. “Often times women select the wrong formulation for their skin type (maybe they read a celebrity is using this one product or their friend suggests) and they start to see additional issues like breakouts or oiliness. Take your product recommendations from a skincare expert. If you can’t see a professional aesthetician, DBH has a hotline to answer any questions on the best products.Dermaesthetics Beverly HillsCall: (213) 545-1266
One of the newest ‘Must-Have” in beauty is a serum. What exactly is a serum and how will it benefit your skin? How to pick the best one? When to start using a serum? We take these important questions to Lincoln Lee, Director of Dermaesthetics Beverly Hills.
What exactly is a serum?
A face serum is typically a liquid concentrate of active skincare ingredients. While the base of the serum ranges, the application is the same-It is applied after cleansing & toning, but before a moisturizer.
How does it benefit the skin?
Depending on the formulation, the face serum delivers a concentrated recipe to treat the skin concern. A face serum can also provide additional environmental protection, such as the top –selling DBH C-Ester Vitamin C20% Serum-created to maximize treatment and protection benefits. By working to fortify the skin, this ultra lean serum protects against free radical damage caused by pollution and UV exposure.
How to pick the best one for you?
The best way to select a serum is to first think about your skin type-are you normal/combination, oily or dry? Select a serum that is formulated for your skin type. Next, think about the one thing you would like to change about your skin: Is it to eliminate excess pigmentation? Is it to nourish/correct skin that has wrinkles or loss of elasticity
When to start using a serum?

Oh the cute babyface! We all love to look at them and wish we had them. But how do we really keep our skin baby-like and age-less? The answer begins with analyzing (very simply!) what are the visible signs of aging?
We can start the list with aging effects of the sun: enlarged pores, broken capillaries and excess pigmentation on the skin. New studies published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology now prove that pollution (specifically particle matter) are the cause of excess pigmentation on the forehead and cheeks. Excess sun and pollution exposure can also cause laxity of the skin as shown in areas of expression: around the eyes, on the forehead and/or from the nose to the mouth, commonly referred to as nasolabial folds.
Next, we can list the aging appearance of the skin by genetics as well as environmental damage which is deeper wrinkles on the cheeks, sagging around the jaw and neck, deep furrows between the brows in addition to fatty deposits and swelling under the eyes and slack upper eyelids.
UGH! What to do? Well, first prevention with protection is the best place to start. Protecting your skin against oxidation with anti-oxidants, such as Vitamin C and E. Also it is vital to guard your skin against inflammation with anti-inflammatory ingredients such as Green Tea and Cherry extracts. And finally, Sunscreen! Sunscreen! Sunscreen!
To correct signs of aging, start with the basics of a good skincare routine-cleanse, tone, moisturize, and exfoliate at least once a week. Adding in a professional treatment to deeply exfoliate the skin offers the best corrective option in addition to the toning and circulation benefits of a good facial massage. Dermaesthetics Beverly Hills offers a lifetime of self-care products to use at home while the professional treatments dispensed only to professionals provides every treatment possible. The key is to keep a DBH professional on your speed dial.
So, how to age-less is simple: protection and correction keeps your face as ageless as a baby’s.
What is the main difference between young skin and aged skin? One of the major differences that we see in aging skin is the loss of collagen. Often referred to as the lattice work of skin, collagen gives both support and firmness. The loss of collagen causes skin to sag and wrinkle and can vary depending on genetics and environmental damage, not necessarily occurring at a certain age. So the question is: What can we do to prevent the loss of collagen? In healthy skin, within the dermis, the collagen and elastic provide structural support to the skin. As we are exposed to environmental damage such as UV rays, free radicals, pollution,smoke etc, those collagen fibers are broken down. Wearing sun protection (such as SPF 50) as well as layering a serum (such as C-Ester Topical VitaminC 10 or 20) to provide anti oxidant protection is ideal prevention. Another way to combat the collagen loss is to add-in the Dermaesthetics Beverly Hills Collagen Stemedic Serum)
This highly concentrated serum provides hydrating Panthenol, Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin E to initiate the repair of damaged skin cells. Additionally, Collagen Stemedic Serum works to plump and firm skin to offset the gradual loss of skin’s support. Back to our question: When is it time for collagen? The best answer is NOW.

With all the health benefits from eating cherries, the question comes up: How do cherries benefit my skin? There are many aspects of cherries that benefit certain skin conditions.
