Dr. Stuart Kincaid
Dr. Kincaid is a leading proponent of non-surgical treatments to help patients seeking a rejuvenated facial appearance. He understands that not everyone is a candidate for cosmetic surgery in San Diego, Temecula, Inland Empire and the surrounding area. Please read the information below to gain a better understanding of cosmeceuticals such as Retin-A and how they can help the rejuvenation procedure.
For most people, the first course of action used to treat skin problems is over-the-counter topical creams and ointments. When these fail, the next level of treatment is cosmeceuticals: prescription ointments, creams, cleaners and lotions that can augment natural collagen, stimulate skin regeneration, and/or help retain skin elasticity. Generally, cosmeceuticals are used to reduce wrinkles and create the appearance of smoother, younger skin.
Tretinoin, known as Retin-A, is the most widely used cosmeceutical. A variety of products incorporate Retin-A in order to eliminate old surface skin layers with new. Retin-A is now added to some over-the-counter products as well. Continuous use of these products over 2 to 6 months is required to achieve visible results. In some cases, individuals may react negatively to Retin-A and experience itchiness, redness, scaliness or a burning sensation.
Dr. Kincaid is proud to offer his patients a variety of procedures to help them with their cosmetic goals. In addition to offering a variety of cosmeceuticals, he helps patients seeking Galvanic Spa facial, breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tuck, rhinoplasty and facelift in San Diego, Temecula, Inland Empire and the surrounding area achieve their desired appearance.
