At Northshore Plastic Surgery we have integrated skin care into style of living, having glowing skin is something we crave. It is a part of our must have daily routine that is almost as demanding as that morning cup of coffee. From our morning cleanse to our nightly hydration, we wanted to discuss some of the important commodities that we offer and love to rave about, along with how to use them.
Products are an important aspect to any type of skin care regimen. With that being said we’ve handpicked a few of our favorite products that we use from our brands: Cosmedix, NeoCutis, Elta MD, Skin Ceuticles, Obagi and Colorscience. Whether it’s a cleanser, toner, moisturizer, sunscreen or products geared toward acne and pigmentation we have all the bases covered. There are many different skin types and conditions being why we carry a variety of products customized to your skin’s needs. We took all that into consideration and came up with this list of products we love.

Obagi Nu-derm is a system known for its transformation of the skin by slowing down skin cell turnover and provides elimination to signs of premature aging. This system can be customized to cater to the type of skin you have whether it’s normal to oily or normal to dry. Our medical estheticians do a great job with customizing the right products.
Skin Ceuticles, founded by a chemist whose mission was in antioxidant research, only makes sense thatthis one made the list.
