Basic Skin Care and 5 Cosmetic Procedures to Help Slow Down Father Time

Remember your skin as a child? It was vibrant, glowing, elastic and clear. It seemed that no matter what you did to your skin during those lazy, hazy crazy days of endless summer, it couldn’t be harmed. Cuts and scrapes healed fast, bruises disappeared quickly. No skin care was needed. Then you became a teenager and experienced some serious skin changes.

And then you became an adult, and that was likely the end of “perfect” skin. But aging doesn’t mean you can’t have good-looking skin – it just means you have to put some focus on it.

Here are some important points on basic skin care and where to turn when you need a little more than basic.

Your Skin Care Routine

Nice skin is skin that’s well cared for. That means daily attention with quality cleansers and moisturizers. Cleaning your skin – in particular your face – every day gets rid of dirt and pollutants that can be harmful. Weekly exfoliation with a gentle scrubbing device is another step toward healthier skin at any age.

Regular skin care is important, but it can’t stop your life clock from ticking. There may come a time when you begin seeing wrinkles, fine lines, age spots and the like and think maybe you ought to look into cosmetic procedures. If that’s the case, there are plenty of exciting options. Here are a few.

Soft tissue fillers, when performed by a trained dermatologist, are great for erasing lines, bringing more definition to the lips, filling in hollow areas of the skin caused by scars or aging, and more.

Chemical peels focus on smoothing out wrinkles and acne scars. The process removes outer skin layers to rejuvenate age spots and bring new life to dull skin.

Botox injections are used to help facial muscles to relax, thereby helping to prevent crow’s feet, frown lines and other unsightly skin issues.

Microdermabrasions are used to clean the skin of dead cells (exfoliation) and bring about a more lively skin appearance through the application of small cleansing particles to the skin’s upper layers.

Light treatments and laser treatments are engineered to remove outer layers of the skin and stimulate collagen production. These are good procedures for sun damaged skin, scarring from acne and age spots.
