Skin care is an essential component of a healthy, attractive appearance. Our Bio-Skin Care Program focuses on peri-surgical and non-surgical skin health and appearance, relying on a solid understanding of skin biology. Our skin care program provides MEDICAL LEVEL skin care on three levels:The art and science of skin care is very dynamic, and new products and treatments are being introduced all the time. We are constantly evaluating and changing our treatment modalities to take advantage of these new treatment alternatives.

Skin care is offered to both surgical and non-surgical patients. Surgery patients benefit from our Bio-Skin Care Program, accelerating healing and maintaining the results of their facial surgery. Many patients who are not quite ready for surgery, or wish to delay surgery for a period of time, are excellent candidates for our Bio-Skin Care Program.

Attention to basic skin care needs is the cornerstone. Pharmeceutical based topicals reverse aging signs, and Injectables such as Botox and the fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm, provide enhancement with limited to no down time. Many other fillers, such as Sculptra, are also available.

Surgery patients are typically evaluated before surgery, and remedial action is recommended as necessary. Following surgery, generally 3-4 weeks after the procedure, exfoliation followed by intensive moisturizing accelerates the return to a healthy glow, following the initial healing period. An ongoing home care regimen is designed and implemented and, importantly, monitored.

Patients who are too early for, or personally not ready for surgery, are evaluated and a three part recommendation plan is developed.

Ongoing follow up is essential because the skin is dynamic and changing. The follow-up visits may be as frequent as monthly, or as infrequent as once annually. We respect your time and financial considerations.

“As a physician, I know about physician hype and marketing, the go to surgeon nonsense… Having lived and worked in the Bay area for many years, when it was my time I asked colleagues who performs consistently excellent facial work. Your name came up repeatedly… While I was impressed with your professionalism, it is the artistic, balanced, natural result that reminds me everyday that I made the right choice putting my face in your hands. Thank you.”

“When I tell people that I have two adult children, they look at me and say, “You must have been a child bride.” Well I love the look on their faces when I tell them I’m 63. Sometimes I say “You know, Dr. Barnett is my secret weapon”, but most of the time I just say, “Oh, I guess I’m lucky. Good genes…” If they only knew! You are wonderful.”
