Skin Care by Age

Posted by | Acne, Skin Care, Skin+Metrics, Tips | No Comments


Skin care is a delicate process and should be handled wisely, especially as you age. Your buoyant, supple skin in your 20’s will have different needs compared to your thin, fragile skin of your 70’s. In each era of your life, your skin will need to be handled appropriately, otherwise it will lead to irritation, breakouts or damage. Your skin is the first thing people see when they look at you so maintaining a healthy, vibrant look throughout every age of your life is important. A consultation with Dr. Ted Lain Dermatology will determine your skin type as we discuss the needs of your skin type specific to your age group. As your skin ages, you will need to take precautions to protect your skin throughout your life.

Your teenage years

Up until this stage of life, you might have been oblivious to skin care. But then one day as your hormones surge, breakouts become a new trial in your life and your skin becomes more sensitive to external sources. Combating that stubborn teenage acne is simple with our Skin+Metrics face cleansing and hydrating system. It cleans out your pores and will restore your confidence again.

Your 20’s

During your 20’s, you may still experience the occasional breakout, but your hormones are regulating and these breakouts may happen less often. For some, acne continues to plague them so continuing on with your trusted skincare routine is essential. Using skincare products that are gentle without causing irritation will keep your skin from looking blotchy. Remember, how you care for your skin in your 20’s will add to your skin’s health in your later years.

Your 30’s

In this time frame of your life, you might regret not appreciating the youthful face of your 20’s more. During this phase, you will notice fine lines appear around your eyes and maybe even a few more in your forehead or around your mouth. Breakouts might become less frequent, but you may notice hyperpigmentations, sun spots and dark circles under your eyes. Using a toner to firm your skin and keep your pores clean can do wonders. Do not forget to implement an exfoliation and sunscreen regimen that will keep your skin supple. Filling your diet with foods full of antioxidants will reflect through your skin so avoid the overly processed foods. The Skin+Metrics Dermalux is a perfect solution to protecting yourself from those damaging and harmful UV rays.

Your 40’s

By your 40’s, the age signs on your skin become a big deal because they are more prominent. To hide the signs of age, you may need a more aggressive approach with the help of Dr. Ted Lain Dermatology. Retinol, for instance, is a powerful tool to fight against the signs of aging. It is a form of vitamin A, that once absorbed into the skin, spurs collagen production, diminishing wrinkles and giving a vibrancy to your face. Ask us about the Skin+Metrics Retinol 20 Gel and how it can help you.

Your 50’s and beyond

Gravity is your worst enemy as your age and in your 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, the wrinkles deepen and the sagging worsens. Dr. Ted Lain Dermatology is here to assist you however, to help you age gracefully. With a complete consultation, we can go over the right procedures and skin care products that will help you bring back youthfulness to your skin. We cannot stop the aging process, but helping you age beautifully is our goal.

Daily Doses of Skincare from Your Austin Dermatologist

Posted by | Skin Care, Skin+Metrics | No Comments

If you’re like most people, you probably only visit your dermatologist in Austin once every month or few months. You come to the office and receive expert skin treatment and advice; then you’re set loose in the world to manage a healthy skin routine on your own. With your busy schedule, that can be quite a challenge. Wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy in-office treatments at home? Never have to worry if you’re using the right cleansers and lotions? Feel confident in your skincare regiment? In other words, wouldn’t you love to have daily access to your dermatologist’s advice and products? As promised in the headline, you can. That’s not to say you should stop by your dermatologist’s office in Austin every day—we have a better solution.

Dr. Ted Lain knows he can’t be with his patients day in and day out, so he formulated his very own line of skincare products to bridge the gap between appointments. You won’t find these sitting on any old drugstore shelf; each product has been thoroughly tested and tweaked to achieve the best possible results. And now, they are available to you to use every single day. It’s like fitting a dermatologist’s office in your bathroom cabinet.

What You’ve Got In Your Corner

Right now, you have an arsenal of acne-blasting, free-radical-eliminating, youth-restoring formulas just waiting at our dermatologist office in Austin. When you stop by, you can learn about all of them. Today, we’ll highlight just a few.

Daily Toner Pads


Free radicals are the boogieman of the skincare world: people know almost nothing about them except that they’re bad for your skin. While it’s true that free radicals can harm your skin’s cells, many have no idea how to fight the problem. That’s why Dr. Lain packed powerful antioxidants into his Daily Toner Pads. The formula neutralizes free radicals for you by collecting stray oxygen molecules—all you have to do is use the pads.

Daily Purifying Sensitive Cleanser


Attention all patients with sensitive skin: This is the product you’ve been searching for. If you have a sensitive complexion, it may feel almost impossible to find a cleanser that’s strong enough to fight your acne and gentle enough to work with your skin. Rest assured, there is a dermatologist in Austin who understands your dilemma. Check out the Daily Purifying Sensitive Cleanser today.



Our powerful products are not just for acne patients. With Dermalux, you can turn back the clock—or, in this case, sundial—for your skin. The formula of antioxidants, emollients, and lightening agents works to fade discoloration and sun-darkened spots on your skin. It also guards against future UV ray damage to keep you looking youthful and healthy.

This is only a small sample of what Dr. Ted Lain has to offer as your Austin dermatologist. If you’ve got a problem, he’s got a solution—one you can use every single day. Set up an appointment to get started.
