Customized Anti-Aging Skin Care for Your Needs

Revitalize and Rejuvenate with Help from Our Aesthetic Experts in Grand Rapids, Michigan!

You've heard people say age is just a number. If that's true, what number is your skin broadcasting? It might match up with the age you want to present to the world—or it might not. Have you ever seen a photo of yourself and wondered why you don't look as young as you thought you did, or as young as you feel? If so, chances are it's because you're beginning to show signs of aging skin. The Grand Rapids transforMD Skincare and Laser Center team of highly trained Expert Aestheticians can customize a skin care regimen so you look as young on the outside as you feel on the inside, especially when paired with our rejuvenating nonsurgical treatments—and we'll do it on your schedule. With Saturday and evening hours for your convenience, caring for your skin has never been easier!

Women and men of all ages can benefit from a daily skin care routine that repairs, protects, and nourishes, but with so many advanced anti-aging skin products and options available, sometimes it's hard to know where to begin. Never fear! Our experienced licensed Expert Aestheticians can guide you in creating an optimal treatment plan and daily skin care routine to help you achieve your individual aesthetic goals. Why not let our team help you develop a strategy to repair and protect one of your most valuable assets? Remember, it's never too early or too late to start taking active steps to promote healthy, beautiful skin for life.

How can I determine what treatments and products will improve my aging skin?

If you're serious about rejuvenating and protecting your skin, a thorough skin analysis with our Canfield VISIA® Complexion Analysis can guide you in deciding which treatments, products, and maintenance routines will keep your aging skin looking youthful and radiant. VISIA® provides the most comprehensive means available for identifying all aspects of your complexion's health. The VISIA® system uses multispectral imaging and analysis to provide a multi-dimensional portrait of your complexion, capturing key visual information for six areas affecting its health and appearance:

  • Wrinkles
  • Spots
  • Pores
  • Skin tone
  • Pore bacteria
  • UV spots

The information provided instantly by your VISIA® analysis will guide your aesthetician in creating a customized treatment plan and anti-aging skin care regimen in our Grand Rapids office. You can even take home a printed report of your imaging session, which explains recommended rejuvenation and skin care options.

What's the best way to correct or improve my skin and prevent premature aging?

Restoring aging skin's youthful appearance and keeping it in optimal condition require a grassroots approach. Look for treatments and products with "G.R.A.S.S." in mind:

  • Growth Factors
  • Retinoids
  • Antioxidants
  • Sunscreen
  • Specialty Products

Each factor above is critical for restoring aging skin and maintaining great skin into the future—and it works best when you start early! While treatments and products to reverse the look of aging skin are more effective and available than ever before, prevention remains the best strategy for youthful-looking skin. Not only can proper sun protection, hydration, and more delay the appearance of wrinkles, spots, and other signs of aging, it makes essential skin care more effective down the road when it comes to time to make repairs as necessary to maintain the health and beauty of your body’s largest organ!

Growth Factors

Growth factors are naturally occurring proteins that repair and remodel aging skin. As we age, we begin to lose these growth factors, resulting in slower healing time, collagen loss, and the appearance of aging skin. Grand Rapids’ transforMD Skincare and Laser Center offers medical-grade skin care products, which contain a high concentration of growth-factor proteins. When we replenish the growth factors lost with age, we help prevent lines and wrinkles from appearing.

Retinoids

Retinoids gradually exfoliate our skin's dull outer layers and aid in rejuvenation. With age, our cell turnover rate slows, leading to an accumulation of dead cells and a dull appearance to our skin. Retinoids can remove those dead cells, giving your aging skin a luminous, youthful glow. At the Grand Rapids transforMD Skincare and Laser Center, we carry retinol products in different concentrations to meet your individual needs, keeping your skin looking healthy and glowing.

Antioxidants

Antioxidants defend skin against free radicals and environmental damage, including UVA rays and environmental pollutants. Antioxidants prevent and repair damage to your body's tissues by slowing or preventing oxidation, which can lead to cell dysfunction. If you've seen a peeled apple turn brown, you've seen oxidation in action. Unfortunately, you can also see it in action in your aging skin. The transforMD Skincare and Laser Center offers numerous anti-aging skin care products with powerful antioxidants to protect your skin from many different aggressors.

Sunscreen

Sunscreen containing zinc oxide shields the skin from damaging UVB and UVA rays responsible for skin cancer and the look of aging skin. And it's never too late to start! If you already have sun damage, your skin can heal if you start to protect it now. Our oil-free, ultra-sheer sunscreens contain zinc oxide and feel great on the skin, unlike thicker over-the-counter sunscreens. We carry sunscreen formulated with the latest science and technology, from ZO®, Avéne, Neocutis, and Skinceuticals®.

Specialty Products for Anti-Aging Skin Care

Specialty anti-aging skin care products address the unique needs of each individual patient. The Grand Rapids transforMD Skincare and Laser Center carries a wide range of specialty products to treat skin conditions that occur with age, environmental damage, or hormonal factors.

Beautiful skin doesn't just happen; it requires daily maintenance as well as frequent exfoliating treatments to remove dead skin and stimulate collagen. Exfoliation enables aging skin to absorb the nutrients in your skin care products, creating beautiful skin and a new, healthy glow!

The transforMD Skin and Laser Center's licensed Expert Aestheticians are dedicated to helping you attain the most vibrant, youthful skin possible, regardless of your age or skin type.
