Dermatologists share skin care tips
Cosmetic dermatology consists of many kinds of treatments to aid in the restoration of the skin and the reduction of wrinkles. Dermatologists can offer dramatic results in as few as 3 or 4 days with Botox therapy. If you are looking for a subtler approach to anti-aging, consider a doctor recommended wrinkle cream or serum. Board-certified dermatologists offer a complete line of anti-aging skin care products that are highly effective.
If you are leaning towards skin care products from your favorite cosmetics line, we can offer some helpful tips to get you safely through the process. Shopping for an over-the-counter skin care product can be a hit-and-miss experience. It can be difficult to know which products to choose. Your dermatologist has the advice to help you shop with confidence.
Sunscreen and skin care
Sunscreens and moisturizers are extremely effective as anti-aging products. Protecting your skin is the foundation of skin care and can make a remarkable difference in care for aging skin. Sunscreen should be rated at an SPF 30 or higher. Purchase sunscreen that is a broad-spectrum or full-spectrum sunscreen. This means that it is designed to protect you from both UVA and UVB. An added feature should be sunscreen that offers water resistance. Moisturizers are intended to minimize fine lines and provide a protective barrier for your skin. In addition to daily application of a moisturizer, one should maintain a healthy diet. Using a moisturizer with sunscreen is ideal.
Beware of manufacturer claims
Regardless of manufacturer claims, there is no product that works for every type of skin aging. After a few weeks of consistent use of sunscreen and moisturizer, examine your skin and then get you’re your cosmetic dermatologist to prioritize the skin aging issues that are most prominent for you. Focus on one issue at a time. Your dermatologist can recommend products that target your trouble spots. Avoid using more than one anti-aging product at a time. Use of multiple products without assessment by a dermatologist, can lead to skin irritation.
