Is botox a toxin? What is the purpose of fillers? What does CoolSculpting do and what should we be aware of before doing it? What do we need to know about lasers? What are the cautions for doing more invasive facial resurfacing treatments? What new skincare treatments are on the horizon? What should we do every day for better skin? In what order should we apply our skincare?

Kelly Stankiewicz, MD, FAAD is a board-certified dermatologist with a passion for all things skin. After graduating from medical school at Indiana University School of Medicine in 2006, Dr. Stankiewicz completed her dermatology residency at the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in 2010 and a clinical fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School and the Wellman Center for Photomedicine in lasers and cosmetic dermatology in 2011. She joins the SuperAge podcast to help us understand the world of dermatology. What should we be doing and what shouldn’t we be doing?

Dr. Stankiewicz recommends that everyone check in with a trusted doctor or esthetician to decide on their skin goals and needs. Categories of topical products that Dr. Stankiewicz recommends incorporating: daily sunscreen, antioxidants, exfoliants (Retin-A, glycolic acid, etc.), growth/rejuvenating serums (peptides, smart molecules, etc.).

“Number 1: sunscreen. If there’s nothing else that you do, you must stay out of the sun. I hope everybody knows that by now.”

“The cosmeceutical industry is huge. And anybody can sell anything.”

“I would recommend to everybody to have a doctor or an esthetician who they truly trust to lead them in the right direction.”

“I find that overdoing it can make you look old. Too much plastic surgery, too much filler, makes you look old. When you’re chasing minor imperfections, that’s when you can overdo it.”
