  • Why do I need a skincare regimen?

    Bottom line…skincare matters for men. No matter what age you are, you can benefit from developing a skincare regimen for your skin. It will keep your skin looking better, fresher, and younger for longer — as well as ward off irreversible sun damage.

  • What kinds of products do I need to use on my face and when?

    To determine the best products or procedures for your skin, we encourage you to schedule a FREE skincare consultation performed by our licensed Aesthetician. They will be able to determine exactly which medical-grade products are right for you.

    The Iowa Clinic Medical Spa uses Obagi® and Revision® skincare lines. Our staff encourages men to use at least a medical-grade cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen. For additional anti-aging, hydration and overall healthier looking skin, a Vitamin-C and Retinol may also be recommended. A sample of a Men’s Skincare Regimen which includes five products are listed below Cleanser (AM/PM), SPF Moisturizer (AM), Moisturizer (PM), Vitamin-C (AM) and Retinoid (PM).

    Morning Routine

    STEP 1: Cleanse - Obagi Nu-Derm® Foaming Gel OR Obagi360® Cleanser

    STEP 2: Vitamin C - Obagi Professional-C Serum OR REVISION Vitamin C 30%

    STEP 3: Moisturize - Obagi360 Hydrafactor® SPF 30 OR Obagi Hydrate® Facial Moisturizer

    Evening Routine

    STEP 1: Cleanse - Obagi Nu-Derm® Foaming Gel OR Obagi360® Cleanser

    STEP 2: Retinoid - Obagi Tretinoin Gel 0.05% OR REVISION Retinol Complete

    STEP 3: Moisturize - Obagi Hydrate® Facial Moisturizer

  • Why can’t I just run to the store and get some moisturizer?

    It is important that you use the best products for your skin and there are some major differences between medical-grade products and those found over-the-counter. Bottom-line is the quality and quantity of ingredients. Over-the-counter products are not held to the same standard that medical-grade products are. Medical-grade products are subjected to rigorous and extensive testing and clinical studies. Most over-the-counter skincare brands have no clinical studies or research behind them at ALL! Be safe and go with what’s been proven to work.

  • What if products aren’t my thing? What are my options?

    The Iowa Clinic Medical Spa offers a variety of non-invasive procedures and treatments. Our licensed Aesthetician and staff at the Medical Spa work closely together to find the best solution for you. Because of the collaborative efforts of three well respected and trusted Iowa Clinic departments: Aesthetics, Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, the Medical Spa has a solution for everyone’s needs. Our four board-certified plastic surgeons with over 40 year’s combined experience oversee all procedures, services, treatments, and products that take place at the Medical Spa. Therefore, rest assured, you are getting the most trusted care for your cosmetic concerns.

  • I’m ready. Now what?

    It’s easy.

    Step 1: Request a FREE skincare consultation online with our licensed Aesthetician or call the Medical Spa at 515.875.9755.

    Step 2: The consult will take approximately 15-30 minutes in our professional, clinic setting. Our staff will analyze your skin, listen to your concerns, and offer real solutions that are simple to incorporate into your daily routine.

We understand products and aesthetic procedures can be intimidating for men. Our team will make sure you leave the office feeling comfortable and understand how to apply the product, why each product is important or what to expect during your skincare procedure.

Let’s get real. We aren’t getting any younger. It’s time to step up and take care of your skin.
