You don’t wait until your teeth are falling out to see a dentist. Why wait until the wrinkles, lines and sagging skin settle in before seeing a dermatologist? By taking care of your skin while you are still young and establishing a skin-care regimen (with the help of your dermatologist), you can keep your skin healthy throughout your life. The procedures that we are spotlighting here are not only effective in staving off the ravages of age, but also are remedies for skin conditions that affect all ages.
A chemical peel is an in-office procedure that breaks apart the little “bridges” that connect skin cells and sloughs dead skin off your face to reveal a fresh, glowing complexion. Even if your skin looks fine to you starting out, you will be amazed at how smooth it is after the peel and how even your skin tone can look. A chemical peel also treats acne blemishes and scarring.
You use your facial muscles to frown, smile, grimace and squint. All the while, microscopic grooves are forming beneath the surface of the skin. With the near-constant movement of these muscles, the grooves get deeper and eventually show up as those dreaded lines and wrinkles. Early botox injections reduce the muscle movement, and can prevent the grooves, lines and wrinkles before they occur.
Dermal fillers have become among the most popular non-surgical procedures for women in their 20s and early 30s. Before your skin wrinkles, creases or sags is the best time to start your anti-aging skin regimen. Dermal fillers injected into soft tissues also allow you to do some “quick fixes,” such as plumping up thin lips, flat cheeks or a weak chin.
Microneedling increases your skin’s production of collagen to minimize fine lines and sagging skin, and also decreases the production of sebum that makes your face oily and susceptible to acne and blackheads. It also diminishes discoloration and scars. The most immediate effect is the improvement in the quality and texture of your skin.
Retinoids remove damaged layers of skin and promote regular cell turnover to prevent clogged pores and reduce the risk of acne and wrinkling of the skin. They also keep the skin supple, delaying future skin sagging, as well as leaving it soft and radiant.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing reduces wrinkles, but you don’t have to wait for wrinkles to glean the benefits of the treatment. You can have your skin resurfaced to diminish scars and blemishes, repair sun damage and even out skin tone. The heat generated by the laser also promotes the production of collagen which aids in tightening the skin and leaves your skin looking young and healthy.
Essential to the process of securing a lifetime of healthy skin is receiving the best care available. That is not from a “pop-up” storefront advertising “skin care specialists.” These are medical procedures. Dermatologists, certified by the Amberican board of dermatology (ABD) receive 12 to 14+ years of advanced education and medical training, and make your safety and comfort the #1 priority.
