Q: Hi, Dr. Rodgers. Your line, En Pointe Skin Solutions, offers many different products for different skin needs. What are the top three products in your line that you would recommend to everybody, regardless of skin type?
A: The top 3 products that I would recommend for anyone would be the Bravo Daytime Hydration Moisturizer with SPF 30, the Éclairci C Serum for daytime use and the Encore Renewal Serum.
There is no doubt that sun exposure hastens the aging process and acts as a causative factor in skin cancers, so the Bravo Daytime Hydration moisturizer will help mitigate the effects...

The term ‘plastic’ or ‘cosmetic surgery’ actually covers a variety of surgical and chemical procedures which alter the body’s outward appearance. Procedures are used to shape certain body parts such as the breast or nose, to soften skin tone reducing or eliminating wrinkles, and to correct problems resulting from either accident or disease.
Plastic surgery is a combination of art and science. Cosmetic plastic surgery, in particular, requires meticulous technique, basic surgical principle, and the surgeon’s tasteful creativity combined to result in the ultimate pleasing outcome.

Do you use sunscreen every day?
In my patients, the sun is one of the biggest causes of aging skin: pigmentation problems, dry and flaking skin. The easiest way to protect your face from sun damage is to use a daily moisturizer with sunscreen every day, even if you spend most of your day indoors, and reapply that sunscreen throughout the day. There are countless moisturizers with SPF to choose from, and some work better than others. Many of the most popular brands don’t provide long lasting, broad spectrum protection.
SPF (sun protection factor) refers only to a product’s ability to protect...

Many Americans have inadequate levels of Vitamin D, a vitamin that's essential to our health. Known as the "sunshine vitamin," your body manufactures Vitamin D when you are exposed to sunlight. It is also available through the diet via fish, fish oil, egg yolks, cheese and beef liver -- and supplements. Vitamin D is essential for strong bones, a healthy cardiovascular system and mental cognition.
Sunscreen blocks the production of Vitamin D through the skin. Some doctors, including Dr. Frank Lipman on Gwyneth Paltrow's site GOOP,
make the controversial...

Our friends at The Luxury Spot vouched for the power of EnPointe's Eclairci C Serum
, infused with Vitamin C. Here's what Bryce had to say:
"This season I’m absolutely IN LOVE with working vitamin C into not only my diet, but my beauty routine as well. I love really strong, medicinal products (hey, if you’re gonna do it, do it!) ... EnPointe’s serum was developed...

This is a question our Aesthetician, Donna, is asked all the time. Her answer?
" Yes, Sun damage can absolutely be reversed!"
The topical Vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid) contained in EnPointe's Éclairci C Serum
is not only great at preventing further damage but it helps to lighten and brighten areas of the skin where sun damage has already occurred.
Another product that will help lighten sun damage is hydroquinone. This is a product I don’t like to see my patients on more than 6 months at a time because it can conflict with other products so is best to use with professional supervision.

Question: I am in my 60’s, what should I use to slow down aging skin?
Answer: Pat, Enpointe Skin Solutions are loaded with anti-aging ingredients to slow down the aging process, as well as reverse some of the damage that has already been done.
I recommend a good cleanser to start with. Our Adagio Gentle Cleanser
will remove dirt, makeup, and oils while gently exfoliating to remove dead skin.
A good source of Vitamin C, such as our Eclairci C Serum
