Dr. Anderson Answers Your Questions


Dr. Jessica Anderson

1. Why did North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic choose to carry SkinMedica products over the wide variety of other skin care brands in the market?

We chose SkinMedica because it is a great medical grade skin care line that bases their products on extensive research therefore they actually work! I love that they are constantly trying to improve their products and raise their own standards. Since they are an Allergan product and part of the Brilliant Distinctions rewards program, you earn money towards SkinMedica and other Allergan products. This helps keep them affordable!

2. What is your favorite facial to get at North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic?

I like the microdermabrasions. They are an hour long. You get rid of the dead skin cells, steam, an enzyme mask and extractions. Everything you need to get the glow back in your skin!
I love to add a Lighten & Tighten Peel to it to give the results a boost.

3. Why do you like working at North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic?

I feel lucky that I am truly able to say that I love what I do. I love our patients and many of them we have seen for many years. You get to know your patients and they get to know us. It’s like reuniting with family when they come in. Our staff is wonderful! I love that we are like one big family. We really have a great team that work great together.

4. What makes North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic stand out from other clinics?

We have a warm atmosphere here and treat our patients like family. We are honest and don’t suggest things that wouldn’t benefit your skin.
We are “the neighborhood clinic” where groups of friends and families come to get their treatments done.
Our staff is highly trained and some of the best around. We love treating skin and getting results!

5. Why do you recommend Latisse?

Latisse is an effective product to create longer, fuller and darker lashes. It’s an amazing product!
As we age, our lashes get thinner and more sparse. It’s great to have a product to help with those concerns.

6. What do you think of the Velashape III?

I love it. I like that it requires fewer treatments than the other machines to get the desired results.
Our patients have been happy with the results.

7. What is the best way to get rid of dead skin?

There are many ways to get rid of dead skin cells. I think that the best way depends on someone’s skin.
Some of our patients like microdermabraion, some like dermaplaning and others like chemical exfoliants such as alpha-hydroxy acids, beta-hydroxy acids or retinols.
I think all of them are good options.

8. What is your experience with chemical peels?

I absolutely love them. I love peels because you see a difference after your skin peels and it gets better over time.
I like that there are a variety of peels and that you can decide if you want to peel a lot, a little or no peeling at all.

9. How does the Arizona weather affect our skin?

Arizona is really tough on our skin. The dry climate will dehydrate our skin and show or create more wrinkles.
The sun is so strong that even if you don’t lay out in the sun, you are still always getting sun.
Whether it be from driving or walking to and from our cars, its important to always wear sunscreen. I like a SPF 30 or higher. Choosing a medical grade sunscreen is best.

11. How effective is Botox?

Botox works really well! It helps relax the muscles so that it will soften wrinkles over time.
It can help us look refreshed if we are looking a little tired. One treatment can make a big difference!
