Skin Care Q & A

Why is skin care important?

Overall beauty and good health starts with radiant and glowing skin. Beautiful skin can improve one’s emotional and mental well-being, allowing a confident pursuit of life goals. In addition, keeping the skin in good condition limits the signs of aging, helping the patient look younger.

How does Dr. Olarte approach skin care?

Dr. Olarte believes in a comprehensive approach to skin care. She offers top-of-the-line skin care products and services aimed at maintaining the skin’s natural beauty and preventing future damage.

What services are available?

Dr. Olarte offers a range of skin care services, including MPC™ (micro protein complex) and superficial chemical peels. After evaluating your needs and discussing treatment goals, Dr. Olarte will recommend the best option for you. In some cases, patients may benefit from more than one service.

What is MPC?

MPC, or micro protein complex, is the latest exclusive anti-aging technology created by Swiss scientists from Neocutis. This technology is only offered in doctors’ offices. MPC offers a breakthrough alternative in skin rejuvenation. MPC is aimed at improving the signs of aging, including skin elasticity, firmness, fine lines, and wrinkles. The specific micro-proteins found in MPC are foundational in the nourishment of Collagens I, III, and VII, as well as the Elastin and Hyaluronic Acid necessary for youthful-looking skin.

What is a superficial peel?

A superficial peel is a treatment in which the top layers of the skin are removed to improve texture and reduce the appearance of scars. Dr. Olarte’s in-office superficial peels combine glycolic acid with skin brightening agents to help minimize the appearance of skin aging, promote renewed smoothness and radiance, and reduce uneven skin tone and texture. Superficial chemical peels also minimize the appearance of skin pigmentation, roughness, and surface irregularities, as well as fine lines and wrinkles.

Do skin care treatments have risks?

Like any other type of treatment, skin care treatments come with risks. However, the chances of complications are low. For example, some patients who undergo superficial chemical peels may experience mild skin reactions to the agents used. Patients who are concerned about the side effects of treatment should ask Dr. Olarte for more information.
