Dr. Scott Spiro Brings An Artist’s Eye to Anti-Aging and Plastic Surgery

BIM: Is there anything that people should know before considering anti-aging treatment?

Doctor Spiro: I think it goes back the old adage in all of plastic surgery- management of expectations. There is no skincare treatment that’s going to really, completely turn back the clock overnight; nothing will do that. Years of sun  damage, environmental ware, stressors, and genetics, they all take their toll. Patients have to have patience in order to achieve reversal, so it’s a commitment and an effort and a routine. I always tell patients ‘there’s gotta be commitment, there’s gotta be some effort and you have to get into a routine’ and with a little bit of TLC, you know with our help, we can bring the skin’s youth back; it goes a long way.

BIM: That’s great. Is there anything that I haven’t asked that you want to add?

Dr. Spiro:  You know we can quickly get caught up in mentioning individual products and that’s never necessary in a discussion about skincare generality and concepts. I think initially overviews are always better. It’s amazing, it becomes an eye opener for patients when they hear how I sort of uniquely style these foundational building blocks. It really takes patients aback and they say ‘oh you know what I just thought I should do these other things as well’ and we say yes, “if you’re going to come in just twice a year for a major peel, you’re not going to get the result that somebody who establishes those three levels of very simple basics does; they’re going to be the superstars.’ I think  we covered it well.

The last thing, the only other thing I could add is that our favorites in my practice, for medical grade peels and pharmaceutical products are two product lines that have a very high safety record, reproducibility outcome record and they always introduce some new great product every year.

BIM: How long, if you know, have they been on the market since they first introduced them?

Dr. Spiro: Either company has been around at least 15 years.

BIM: So that is significant.

Dr. Spiro: Yes, exactly.
