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.
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.

Many people live with wrinkles, scarring, and other skin damage and are looking for a solution to these imperfections that is both effective and won’t break the bank. With all the procedures available today, it’s hard to know what will give you the results you desire. Dr. Diwan recommends microneedling (also referred to as microchanneling) treatments to many of her northeast Ohio patients seeking to improve their skin appearance because it directly stimulates collagen production, with a quick recovery and minimal risk of side-effects, even for darker complexions.
Obagi® Medical Skin Care systems provide comprehensive benefits for the skin. Obagi® systems consist of prescription and non-prescription products that work together to improve results. With Obagi® products, you can preserve and protect your skin, correct pigment problems (brown discoloration and spots), crepey wrinkles and acne, and restore smooth texture and even skin tone. The right skin care is essential for optimizing the health and beauty of your skin. After an evaluation of your current complexion problems and skin type, the right product(s) are selected to customize your skin care program. These are products that we feel confident will give your skin visible improvement in correcting complexion problems of the face, neck and chest. Don’t forget to ask Dr. Diwan to help design the best skin care regimen to rejuvenate your skin.
Nectifirm® by Revision is a specialized product that contains antioxidants and is formulated specifically for the neck. In addition to C and E, Nectifirm® also contains peptides, plant extracts and ceramide 2. These powerful ingredients address the sensitive skin of the neck reducing fine lines and crêpey skin, helping the skin to look more firm and lifted. All skin types will benefit from Nectifirm®.
Retin A (generic tretinoin) has a well-established record of efficacy. Its effectiveness in treating acne, enlarged pores, oiliness of the skin, uneven skin tone, and wrinkles has been proven over the years in scientific studies. Refissa® is a special formulation of 0.05% tretinoin that is less drying and better tolerated than Retin A. Both 0.05% Tretinoin and Refissa® are prescription products and are available in our office to supplement your skin treatments and improve the health of your skin.
