Aura Skin Store by Frederick Dermatology Associates
1. Why is good skin care so important?
The skin is the largest organ of our bodies. It is there to protect us from the harsh elements like pollutants, free radicals, and UV rays. Given this, daily attention to care for your skin is extremely important in an anti-aging routine to help aid in its protection and renewal. If you are someone that is undergoing in-office procedures or has previously completed these, a good daily routine is vital to maximizing your results and maintaining them.
2. What are the best skin care products for my skin?
All skin is not created equal. There are some of us with inflamed and sensitive skin like rosacea or others who are very acne prone around the mouth and jowl-line (especially around our menstrual cycles). With all of the variations in skin types, the first step in a good skin care regimen is seeing a professional. Who better than board-certified dermatologists? An accurate evaluation will allow a more effective treatment regimen.
In today’s world, it can be overwhelming to sift through all of the cosmeceuticals at the drug store, and many of those have added perservatives and diluted ingredients that fall short of achieving great results. If you are ready to stop playing the guessing game and wasting your money on ineffective products, it is time to have a consult with our experts at Aura. The consultation is always complimentary, and there is no pressure to buy. We are here to educate and get you the results you deserve.
3. What is different about Aura?

We want you the have the healthiest skin possible. Everyone has goals for their skin and most people have a budget. We are committed to working with you and your budget to reveal your best skin.
4. What does it cost to have a full medical-grade skin care regimen?
A cleanser, antioxidant, sunscreen, and a restorative/rehydrating agent for night time is a good starting point for a healthy skin care regimen. Generally, a full daily regime starts at $75. Depending on your skin type and goals, growth factor products, peptides, and coenzymes, etc., can also be added to boost results. Many times refills occur in a 60-90 day period. We keep detailed records for each Aura customer to help make the refill process more convenient as well as document the products that work best for each customer.
The quantity that a patient needs to use when using medical grade products is usually far less then over-the-counter products. Consequently, you tend not to needs as much and run out of product far less quickly. While Aura primarily carries medical grade products, there are a few over-the-counter products that have been proven to be effective. Because we are cognizant of budgetary constraints, we can integrate some over-the-counter products into a skin care regimen.
