The dry air of winter can bring up several concerns. Not only does our skin feel parched and irritated, but it could also be suffering the effects of environmental damage beneath the surface. Dry skin looks rough and scaly. It may be more prone to showing lines and wrinkles. To offset these concerns, it is necessary to find ways to continually support the skin as it ages. Moisturizing is only one aspect of skincare. Here, we discuss a few other ways that you can maintain your most resilient skin at every age.
- Medical Skin Peels
For those who are in the preventive stages of skincare (the 20s and 30s), medical skin peels are an excellent treatment option. A peel is intended for exfoliation. However, by removing the dead and damaged cells on the skin’s surface, a peel also removes obstacles to nourishing skincare products. When the skin is primed for absorption, all products, including those that infuse and lock in moisture, are more effective.
- Address the Aging Issue Head-On
One of the reasons our skin ages is because the body is affected by free radicals. These molecules live throughout the body and provide necessary immune support. Ideally, we would have a nice balance of free radicals and antioxidants, molecules that keep them in check. In most instances, the body accumulates an overabundance of free radicals, which leads to oxidative stress in various organs, including the skin. Oxidative stress is a contributing factor to premature aging. Antioxidants, found in kale, spinach, walnuts, and other foods, help slow this process.
Millions of people receive Botox injections every year. This injectable drug corrects the visible appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet, and horizontal lines on the neck. Additionally, Botox can lift the brow and downturned corners of the mouth. Though often assumed to be a corrective treatment, Botox is increasingly used to prevent new lines from forming.
- Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser devices improve several dermatologic conditions. Some lasers affect the epidermis by vaporizing tiny columns of tissue to create a healing response. Some act on multiple layers of the skin to address more severe signs of aging. Our staff is trained in the use of a wide variety of laser devices. We can help you discover the best treatment to fit your needs and your preferences.
