Renowned dermatologist and skin researcher Dr. Anne Chapas recommends 4 non-surgical breakthrough wrinkle fighters that people can use for skincare in their home.
Getting free medical advice from a renowned dermatologist on how to fight wrinkles is not what you would expect from someone who makes a living off of billing patients for expensive cosmetic procedures. But Dr. Anne Chapas, a board certified dermatologist who blogs on skin health for the Huffington Post and was cited by Elle magazine as one of 13 “beauty geniuses” recently revealed 4 non-surgical skincare products that she recommends as being “breakthrough winkle fighters.”
Dr. Chapas specializes in in Mohs micrographic surgery, dermatologic surgery, cosmetic dermatology, and laser surgery, and is a Clinical Assistant Professor at New York University School of Medicine. She also operates a private practice as the Medical Director at Union Square Laser Dermatology, publishes in medical journals and lectures nationwide about advances in cutaneous oncology, laser surgery and cosmetic dermatology.
Dr. Chapas is a frequent guest on health shows and morning news shows and was recently taped before a live audience offering her advice to women on wrinkle fighting creams that they can purchase in their local drug store.
The following is a description of the 4 wrinkle fighters she recommends and what she has to say about them:
Avon Anew Clinical Advanced Retexturizing Peel—is a cream that removes the fine layer of dead skin that covers healthy living facial skin cells. She states that by removing the topmost layer of dead skin cells that it will give your skin a healthier glow that shows through. “It has the same ingredients I use in my office when I do chemical peels to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles and improve their pigmentation," says Dr. Chapas. The cream comes with a stack of face-wipe pads with a slightly textured surface to help with exfoliation of dead skin cells, and is recommended to be used only once to twice a week.
Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream—is a cream for treating under-eye bags and crow’s feet and consists of a high concentration of caffeine. “Not only will the caffeine wake you up, but it will wake your eyes up,” says Dr. Chapas. She explains that the caffeine and antioxidants in the cream are effective in reducing the wrinkling around the eyes commonly referred to as “crow’s feet.”
Shady Wipes SPF 30—“I always tell all of my patients that sunscreen is the number one anti-aging, anti-wrinkle cream available…and this is a really elegant way for us to get our sunscreen protection,” says Dr. Chapas. The problem why many people do not use sunscreen as often as they should she explains, is that they don’t like the smelly, messy, oily feel from typical sunscreens on their skin. Shady Wipes SPF 30 comes in easily applicable and disposable wipes without the mess of lotions, and should be applied 10-15 minutes before going outside.
Yes to Blueberries Intensive Skin Repair Serum—is a wrinkle fighting cream that is meant to be used in the evening to repair all the skin damaging effects that occurred throughout the day. According to Dr. Chapas, it has multiple antioxidants and moisturizers that can improve your skin in as little as 7 days; however, some of its effects occur almost immediately. “As soon as you use it, it will plump up those lines and wrinkles and make your skin look more refreshed,” says Dr. Chapas.
