“90 Day Healthy, Beautiful Skin Challenge”
Are you up for the challenge?
SpaceCoast Living reader Kimberly is up for the challenge! We asked fans on our Facebook to send us photos of their skin concerns for a chance to look years younger in only 90 days utilizing a customized comprehensive treatment plan and product system designed by Dr. Anita Saluja, MIMA Dermatology.
Hyperpigmentation is brown discoloration of the skin due to increased activity of melanocytes (the skin’s pigment cells). This can be caused by excess sun exposure, hormonal changes such as pregnancy or oral contraceptive use, and genetic tendency (family history).
Dr. Saluja placed her on a Skinmedica Brightening Home Skincare Regimen. This includes daily sunscreen SPF30 with zinc oxide, topical Vitamin C & E, an hydroxy acid cream (Skinmedica AHA/BHA cream), Tri-Retinol cream, and a prescription lightening cream called Epiquin Micro.
Wearing a topical antioxidant and sunscreen (plus hat/visor and sunglasses) daily helps prevent hyperpigmentation.
It will be exciting to see proof of Kimberly’s progress at the end of 90 days!
About the Reveal Image:
The Reveal Imager from Canfield helps customize treatments for skincare patients.

Skin care is not only for beauty but also health.Keep your skin healthy and looking their best by following these practical tips from dermatologists:
- Because skin care products are not subject to approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), their benefits may not be adequately tested and their claims may be exaggerated. Ask your dermatologist for recommendations for skin care products that have strong science behind them and have been proven safe and effective in human studies.
- For day, wear sunscreen and consider using products containing antioxidants because they also have sun-protection properties. At night, consider using products containing retinoids, peptides or growth factors for their repair properties.
