Faye’s Story: Professional Skin Care Success
Many women and men unsuccessfully try to reduce signs of aging and sun damage on their own using the latest over-the-counter products. After years of trying the latest serums, creams, and lotions with little improvement, Faye visited the skin care professionals at Koch Facial Plastic Surgery & Spa in Des Moines, Iowa. In their care, her skin quickly regained its youthful radiance and texture. Faye shares her story below.
Too Much Love of the Sun
I started at Koch by recommendation of my dermatology team. Too much love of the sun in my youth had left those aging sun spots on my skin. I had had a couple of photo facials, and the results initially were good, but I had hoped for a more noticeable improvement. So I was referred to Koch for a stronger, more results-guaranteed treatment.
I was at first a little hesitant to go to a facility with the term ‘plastic surgery’ in the title. I was not interested in anything invasive … just wanted to get rid of those ugly sun spots! That was over 3years ago, and I am so happy to have given Koch a try. Not only did I get results for the age spots, but I also have learned so much more about the care of my skin.
Former ‘Product Junkie’
Like too many of us, I considered myself to be a “product junkie.” I loved trying the newest creams, serums, oils, and so on. Many products made their way into my collection. I used high-end, pricy products, as well as discount store products — and rarely finished any of the products or saw significant results. Then I started with the SkinMedica® line offered through Koch. I do feel that my skin has improved in texture, tone, and elasticity.
It Pays to Be a VIP
Through Koch’s monthly VIP facial program, I became more knowledgeable of the treatments and products geared specifically to my skin care needs. I love the Koch team of professionals, and I continue to learn more about my overall skin health and ways I can manage the aging process.
I have tried several of the treatment options available that assist in the management of the aging process and correct pigmentation from the sun, including: microdermabrasion, Dermapen™, HydraFacial MD®, facials and peels, BBL, and Sciton® Halo treatments. I have been pleased with my results from all of these treatments. The benefits are very noticeable, some almost instantly.
I still love the sun. I always will! Knowing how to better care for my skin, while still enjoying trips to the beach, has made a difference for me. The professionals at Koch are outstanding in their knowledge and understanding of how to put together a skin care plan for any individual.
