Establishing an effective skin care regimen is critical in order to maintain healthy and youthful-looking skin. However, the best skin care products won’t always be found in the beauty aisle of your local department stores—despite what they may claim in their commercials. The best skin care plans begin with the best skin care professionals. Dr. Diwan can help build your own personalized skin care regimen with medical grade products and systems that are chosen to meet your own specific needs.
We currently offer the following skin care products at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center in Westlake.
Antioxidants are among anti-aging products that help reduce the negative effects of sun exposure, other environmental exposure, and various factors that contribute to aging skin. Free radicals eventually cause skin damage from sun exposure. Thus, removing free radicals with antioxidants helps to prevent the harmful effects of sun-exposure. Applying antioxidant creams or serums twice daily to the face help combat free radicals that are formed in the skin as a result of a variety of external and internal insults to the skin. Antioxidants help to improve the health of all different types of skin. Vitamin C and other antioxidant-containing moisturizers are available at our office.

A chemical peel is a treatment that removes layers of skin by application of an acid to the skin surface. The technique of application is an important factor in determining the effectiveness of the peel. After healing, new, regenerated skin gives the face a more youthful and balanced appearance. Common problems such as dullness, roughness of the skin, blocked pores, acne, uneven pigmentation and wrinkles on the skin are improved. Different kinds of acids, in different concentrations and formulas are available for correcting different problems. [Read More]
This is a light, non-greasy silicone gel that is applied twice a day over a scar on any area of the skin. It is similar to silicone gel sheeting but is available in an easy-to-use tube. It has been shown to flatten, smooth and reduce redness and itching of scars from surgery or other injuries. Applying it directly on the skin makes it easier to apply make-up on the surface of a scar. For your convenience, Dermatix® Ultra can be purchased at our office for improving the appearance of a scar as it remodels.
