Frankie Grande is militant about his skincare! The YouTube phenom (and Ariana’s big brother) has been a devotee of The Lancer Method as well as our Sheer Fluid Sun Shield and Eye Contour Lifting Cream since the brand relaunched. He recently Instagrammed a command to his legions of followers, “Defend your skin with @drlancerrx” – and with good reason: from Big Brother 16 to his role in the Broadway production of Mamma Mia!, The Method has served him well. We’ve rarely seen a more flawless complexion – or had more fun than when he stops by to visit.
Interlocking chemistry is not just some heady term you hoped you’d never hear again after narrowly passing science class, it’s the secret behind The Lancer Method (Polish, Cleanse, Nourish). The Method was developed as an integrative three-part system, wherein each step, or product, makes the others more effective. Though this might sound like mad science, it’s based on the most basic principle of pH and our skin’s acid mantle. Skin is naturally slightly acidic, and it’s this acid mantle that protects from bacteria, infection etc. Many cleansers, especially those of lower quality, can leave the skin stripped of it’s natural acid barrier; thus leading to irritation, redness, acne breakouts and other problems. Our Polish is designed to sweep skin of dead cells and debris; The Method Cleanse is designed to not only clean off the lifted cells, dirt and other debris, but also to restore the skin’s pH to protect the natural acid barrier. The result is smooth skin that is prepared to receive the nurtrients and hydration in Nourish, with no “toner step” needed.
You already know many of the ways stars prep for awards season – with the Venus Legacy, stem cell facials, cleanses and months-long exercise regimes – but for the biggest red carpet of the year, it’s time to pull out the (really) big guns. Here are three cutting-edge treatments, two of which are exclusive to Lancer Dermatology, that harness the skin’s ability to self-repair. Nothing looks better on the red carpet than a natural glow, which is why we love these three non-invasive, filler-free treatments that will make anyone ready for the glow of the spotlight – whether it’s the Oscars or a real-life red carpet.
PicoWay is an innovative dual wavelength laser that fires one thousand times faster than the fastest laser currently available to the medical community. The ultra-fast picosecond bursts of energy transmitted to the tissue enable the laser to break up pigment more effectively and trigger the body’s own self-repair mechanisms. Dr. Lancer is the first dermatologist in the United States to have this laser in practice. His decision to use this technology is bolstered by the fact that the laser’s ability to trigger self-healing in the skin aligns perfectly with his anti-aging philosophy of stimulating healing self-repair.
Venus Viva is a NanoFractional Radio Frequency machine that is designed to reduce pore size, correct textural irregularities, soften and diminish wrinkles, and tighten skin laxity, all with minimal downtime and discomfort. The machine uses consistent selectional dermal heating to achieve optimal, immediate and long term results. Dr. Lancer is the first dermatologist in the US to have this machine in his practice.
The Vampire Facial
Technically known as PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Microneedling, the “Vampire Facial” involves taking a patient’s blood, putting it in a centrifuge so that the plasma separates from the red blood cells, and then using a microneedling pen to aerate the skin, while applying the plasma topically. The needling stimulates the fibroblasts in the skin to speed up production of collagen, elastin and growth factor, giving skin an amazing glow. This treatment also corrects fine lines, pigmentation, and topical scars. It is ideal to have in adjunct to regular use of The Method because it employs the same science, the skin’s ability to self-repair.
