About Skin Care
Your skin is one of the first things people notice when they first meet you. It expresses your health and vitality to the world. For these reasons and more, it is beneficial to take care of your skin. With the wide selection of skin products available at The Gill Center for Plastic Surgery and Dermatology (Firenze Derm Spa) at The Woodlands practice, you can continue to treat many skin conditions and problems right at home. We want you to look like your best self.
The skin care/hair care products were chosen by our board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Anita Gill, due to the "evidence-based medicine" (research that states they are effective), quality of ingredients, tolerability for sensitive skin, and ability to treat a variety of skin conditions (acne, rosacea, brown spots, dark circles, fine lines, sun protection, and hair loss). She has tried and tested all the products and incorporates them daily in her own skin care routine.

"I am only a week out after surgery but I do feel like I am in very good hands. Everyone has been very personable and helpful with my questions and concerns. I had an extended tummy tuck and have had minimal pain. Dr. Gill came highly recommended and I am very happy with everything thus far. I have compared his work with other surgeons’ before/after and his leaves very little scarring, in comparison. I can’t wait to get to my final results!"- T.M. / Google / Nov 21, 2018
Our Skin Care Products
SkinMedica’s products are designed to improve the look and health of your skin by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, hyperpigmentation, and improve the tone and texture of your skin. These products meet the needs of many skin types with the use of collagen, antioxidants, and Vitamins C and E. SkinMedica’s offerings include products to even out skin tone and color, as well as slough away damaged skin cells. The Skin Medica options include:
- TNS Essential Serum
- Tri-Retinol Complex
- TNS Eye Repair
- TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream
- Environmental Defense Sunscreen SPF 30
- Redness Relief CalmPlex
- Ultra Sheer Moisturizer
- Scar Recovery Complex
- Face Wash
As we age, collagen production diminishes, skin thins, and elasticity decreases, causing facial sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles. SkinMedica products are scientifically formulated and clinically tested to rejuvenate skin and help rekindle your skin’s youthful appearance. SkinMedica chooses scientifically proven ingredients, such as growth factors and other compounds, to formulate advanced skin care products with antioxidants and retinoids that enhance the natural appearance of your skin by helping to prevent free radical damage.
EltaMD sunscreens are formulated with transparent zinc oxide and are non-comedogenic, sensitivity-free, fragrance-free, and paraben-free. All EltaMD sunscreens are formulated with zinc oxide, which maintains its protective ability in the sun and is more photostable than some chemical ingredients that may degrade. This protective sunscreen blocks the widest spectrum of UVA and UVB rays, shielding your skin against burning, the premature appearance of aging, and risks of skin cancer. Zinc is safe for even the most sensitive skin types. We can recommend which EltaMD sunscreen is the right one for you.
SkinCeuticals is a brand of skin care that is renowned for their products with antioxidants and for formulating their products with scientifically proven ingredients. This is an advanced at-home skin care line that works to prevent damage and help enhance the skin through continual daily use. With products made of pure, pharmaceutical-grade ingredients with proven, scientific results, SkinCeuticals can maintain and improve your skin health. Achieving results means more than restoring youthful, radiant skin — it means preventing serious skin conditions, like skin cancer.
Nutrafol can be purchased at The Center for Plastic Surgery and Dermatology as a supplementation to your diet if you have hair loss or thinning hair. Nutrafol for Men and Nutrafol for Women are formulated specifically for the needs of each gender. Capsules are available in our office for you to purchase if you would like to thicken your hair from the inside out with pharmaceutical-grade Nutrafol.
Once you have a surgical procedure on your delicate facial skin, you may want to be very selective about what kind of cosmetics you put on your face. We offer Colorescience cosmetics for this very reason. After your facial surgery, you can depend on products by Colorscience to provide you with light, breathable makeup that also protects you from the sun. Yes, your makeup can protect you from harmful UV rays if you select the right one, like Colorscience. Made of minerals, these cosmetics are safe for our surgical patients of all ages and skin types.
For a one-of-a-kind scar treatment, you can purchase a BioCorneum silicone scar treatment. With SPF 30 UV protection, BioCorneum acts as a barrier for your skin, but it also softens and lightens your scar tissue as well. Other benefits of this scar treatment are:
- It is a waterproof, silicone product for scars
- Breathable and flexible while on the skin
- Fast drying
Made to be a comprehensive topical scar management gel, BioCorneum was specially patented, and FDA cleared to protect your skin after surgery.
