Skin Care Products

What are skin care products?

Different types of skin care products are designed for different purposes and to target specific problems or cosmetic concerns on the skin, such as acne, hyperpigmentation, or wrinkles and fine lines.

Professional medical-grade skin care products work especially well because they’re usually specially designed and created by aesthetic specialists, doctors, and medical professionals.

What is a good skin care routine?

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed with so many products marketed as skin care solutions, but Dr. Padma is here to help you build your own skin care routine. Dr. Padma provides effective skin care products to help you address your skin concerns and take care of and improve your skin health and appearance.


Working with a skilled aesthetic specialist gives you the benefit of their knowledge and expertise. It’s an excellent way to get the products you need without overspending or wasting time and money on products that aren’t effective or right for your individual skin type. 

A high-quality cleanser is a good place to start. Depending on your skin type, you can choose a foaming cleanser or a cream. A toner is a great addition that helps you clean off any lingering makeup or debris left behind after cleansing. 

It’s also important to have a good moisturizer. Many moisturizers at Columbia Internal Medicine offer additional benefits like acne control or anti-aging properties. To protect your skin from damage and premature aging, you’ll also want to regularly use sunscreen.

You can also choose from numerous masks, serums, and other products that can help you take care of and beautify your skin.


Dr. Padma only uses the most effective possible advanced skin care products, such as products containing retinol or retinoic acid. Retinol skin care products promote cell regeneration, but you need to work with a professional like Dr. Padma who can guide you toward a retinol that’s the right strength for your needs. 

Which skin care products are best for my skin?

During your personal consultation, Dr. Padma evaluates your skin and discusses your treatment goals, such as hyperpigmentation or anti-aging. Dr. Padma then devises a personalized treatment plan and recommends the products and treatments that can help you achieve your aesthetic objectives.


Dr. Padma also offers microneedling, laser skin resurfacing, Botox®, superficial facial peels, and more to give you the gorgeous skin you’ve been envisioning. Call or use the online system.
