Skin Care Products
Frequently, we are asked what steps are needed for anti-aging when it comes to skin care at our Austin plastic surgery practice. Here are the basic four things that help reverse the signs of aging.
Retinols - Repair and Regenerate. Retinols decrease the thickness of the outmost layer of skin, stimulate skin cell turnover, and increase the collagen content of the skin giving it a more translucent appearance.
Antioxidants - Prevent ongoing damage. Antioxidants decrease the presence of harmful oxidants and inflammation. This protects the skin from the negative effects of UV light.
Growth Factors - Repair and Regenerate. Growth factors have shown statistically significant improvements in skin radiance, skin smoothness, skin tone, fine lines and the overall photo-aged appearance of the skin.
SPF (Sunblock/Sunscreen) - Prevent ongoing damage. They block UVA/UVB rays so that there are no destructive effects from free radical damage to skin. Thus, sunscreen helps to preserve collagen, elastin, and prevent hyperpigmentation promoting a healthier, more youthful appearance of skin.
At The Piazza Center, we believe that beautiful results are enhanced by healthy skin and a healthy lifestyle. Our aim is to help you achieve your cosmetic goals and desires.

Dr. Piazza Answers Common Questions
Should I use a cleanser and a toner?
Yes, a gentle cleanser is essential to cleansing the skin of dirt, debris while not stripping the skin of its natural oils. A toner helps to remove dead skin cells and residue, refine pores and prepare the skin for treatment products by restoring it's pH balance. This allows the subsequent application of products to penetrate the dermis so that they can be effective.
What are growth factors?
Growth factors are naturally occurring essential proteins that enable the skin cells to function like younger skin cells. These are produced in higher quantities in younger skin cells. As our skin cells matures with our age, they start to decrease there production and thus allow our skin to have a less healthy appearance with the presence of fine lines, coarse lines and uneven texture.
Why does the TNS Recovery Complex have a distinct scent?
TNS Recovery Complex has a 93.6% concentration of TNS, which is a very high concentration of protein that has a distinct odor. It is this protein (also known as growth factors) that stimulates your skin cells to function better increasing the collagen deposition and restoring the natural elements of the dermis that start to get disorganized and decrease in quantity as we age. I always tell my patients that the presence of this distinct scent is the reason why this product does work. It is the best multivitamin for your skin.
