A Match Made in Austin: 3 Skin Care “Perfect Pairs”

Learn which skin care products enhance results of treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic at The Piazza Center in Austin.


We understand if you find choosing the right skin care regimen a bit of a daunting task. There are a lot of amazing options (and not so great ones) out there, after all. Plus, things can get confusing when you start to combine treatments and products.

Not to worry: Whether you are looking for a sunscreen swap, wanting to boost the results of a treatment like BOTOX® Cosmetic, or ready for an entire skin care revamp, our team of Austin skin care specialists will provide our best recommendations for your best results.

We know what matters when determining a personalized treatment plan (your age, specific skin type, and budget, to name a few). We also understand that not every treatment and product is a good fit for every patient. There are, however, a few product and treatments we seem to recommend together, day-in and day-out: We call them our skin care “perfect pairs.” Here’s why.

BOTOX Cosmetic + SkinMedica® Retinol Complex

When it comes to anti-aging, a retinol is an absolute non-negotiable. Our favorite, SkinMedica Retinol Complex works to renew skin and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with each application. When coupled with BOTOX you’ll treat existing lines and prevent new ones from forming. We do recommend waiting 2 to 3 days after your BOTOX treatment before applying retinol — and we’ll discuss more specifics the day of your treatment.

Microneedling + SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum

Microneedling is our “go-to” option for skin rejuvenation without pain or downtime. In about an hour, patients achieve tighter, smoother skin with the help of microscopic perforations made by a micropen in the skin. This allows for better penetration of products, including the SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum used during the treatment.

This all-in-one, rejuvenating serum reduces the appearance of wrinkles and enhances texture and tone. Initial results develop in about 30 days, with most optimal results visible at the 90-day mark. Watch our live microneedling treatment, which includes some discussion of the science behind TNS. The video features our aesthetician, Jennifer and Dr. Piazza.

Hydrafacial™ + SkinMedica TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR Broad Spectrum Sunscreen

A Hydrafacial is no ordinary facial. In fact, this 40-minute treatment cleanses pores and extracts imperfections while infusing skin with antioxidants and moisture. Plus, there is no downtime — we’re talking minimal redness post-treatment. Beautifully hydrated, glowing skin is only enhanced with proper protection.

Our favorite way to get a daily dose of SPF? SkinMedica TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR Broad Spectrum Sunscreen — or as we like to call it, the SkinMedica “superscreen.” It’s the perfect pairing to any treatment, including Hydrafacial, or as a stand-alone “must-have.”

Whether it’s our “perfect pairs” or products and treatments with entirely different goals, we’ll work with you to achieve your skin care desires in a way that suits your budget. Contact us today to get started.

You and The Piazza Center — that’s the best pairing of all!
