Skin-Enhancing Product Lines
Why does our skin age?
The skin is the largest organ in the body and the first line of defense against the environment. As such, the skin is subject to numerous insults that include sun exposure, pollution and smoking which all contribute to the formation of free radicals leading to skin aging and skin cancer. The most important cause of free radical formation is UVA and UVB radiation. These rays are present year round
and can penetrated clouds and windows.
Aging skin is characterized by collagen breakdown, loss of elasticity, wrinkles and uneven pigmentation.
How can you minimize damage to your skin?
- Stop smoking
- Eat a healthy diet
- Protect yourself from the sun on a daily basis year round
- Use a preventative and reparative skin care regimen

Our physicians work very closely with our esthetician to create a unique program to meet your particular skin needs.

Where should you buy your skincare products?
It is extremely important to never purchase cosmetics, skincare products, supplements, or anything else that is ingested or applied to your skin from an untrusted source. The FBI has time and time again warned the public about fake ingredients and downright toxic substances being found in cosmetics and skincare products that appear authentic but are sold from an untrusted source. Cheaper online products may be counter-fit, diluted, or expired and re-packaged. How can you tell the difference? Visit https://www.fbi.gov/news/stories/counterfeit-cosmetics-fragrances

Our aestheticians will be glad to give you a complimentary consultation to guide you to the best skincare regimen for your skin type or condition. The good skincare products that you invest in today will result in beautiful skin tomorrow.

Jane Iredale: The Skincare Makeup
To look your best and do what’s best for your skin, the makeup you use needs to be a continuation of your daily skincare. Jane Iredale Skin Care Makeup is the only FDA-approved skincare mineral makeup of its kind. It offers pure, concentrated pharmaceutical-grade minerals of the highest quality that can be worn by the most sensitive skin types. This comes in contrast to the vast majority of mineral makeup on the market that has only traces of these minerals and may contain other fillers. Jane Iredale skincare makeup has the Skin Cancer Foundation seal of approval and the powders carried by this line contain SPF to protect your skin from the sun’s damaging rays. For these and many more reasons, Farah Dermatology and Cosmetics is pleased to offer this makeup line to our patients.
Clear skin is more than skin-deep! The health of your skin is intimately tied to the nutritional state of your body, and recently there has been much scientific evidence to substantiated this claim. Unfortunately the supplements commonly found in health food stores or supermarkets frequently contain low-grade ingredients or fillers. This is why we carry pure, pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplements to give your skin nutritional benefits from the inside-out. Upon consultation, our doctors may start by recommending saliva or blood tests to understand if there are nutritional deficiencies or hormonal imbalances in your system. They will then offer various supplements such as:
- Fish oils
- Specialized formulations to benefit the hair, skin, and nails.
- Pure vitamins
