The state of your skin today is not how it was 10 years ago and is not how it will be 10 years from now. In fact, your skin microbiome and exposome are constantly changing. Moreover, your skin is unique to you and not exactly like any other person in the world. Because your skin is unique to you, SkinImmune™ is personalized to your specific goals, needs, and issues.
Perhaps the best way to explain SkinImmune™ is to describe one patient’s experience. ML is a 45-year-old woman with Type 2 diabetes, asthma, and eczema. ML came to see Dr. Buddiga because she wanted Botox and a dermal filler to reverse the look of frown lines. When Dr. Buddiga examined ML’s skin, he found that it was dehydrated, irritated, and inflamed. While many medical spas may simply provide the requested aesthetic treatment, ML’s skin was so fragile and unwell that Dr. Buddiga knew this would be unwise. Instead, Dr. Buddiga recommended to delay aesthetic treatments until the woman’s health and skin conditions could be properly treated. Dr. Buddiga worked with the woman’s endocrinologist to adjust her diabetes medications and bring ML’s blood sugars under better control. He also recommended several dietary and hydration changes that are more skin-friendly. Skin allergen testing revealed one moderate allergy and one severe allergy that ML did not know she had. Dr. Buddiga was also able to get ML’s eczema under control—something she was unable to accomplish with other physicians.
Three months after her initial consultation, ML’s skin looked much healthier. In fact, the woman’s overall health had improved. It turns out, she really didn’t need a dermal filler after all. After discussing the woman’s aesthetic goals, Dr. Buddiga prescribed Hydrafacial™ MD Elite and one round of treatments with a facial neuromodulator. ML was extremely satisfied with the visible results. In addition, because of the changes to her diet and medications, ML felt healthier than she had in years!
