Everybody knows that once we hit our 40’s and 50’s, we’re almost sure to begin showing more severe signs of aging like deep lines and wrinkles on our face and crow’s feet near our eyes. Though seeking treatment to combat the aging process after these tell-tale signs have appeared is still helpful and can provide you with youthful results, our dermatologists believe that taking preventative measures to rid our faces of wrinkles early on is one of the best ways to continue to see natural skin well into our later years.
At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego, we’d like to tell our patients about the best ways to keep your skin looking healthy and young with preventative injections and tips.
1. Keep Your Skin Fresh & Clean
After a long, hard day, we understand that you might want to come home and immediately go to bed. However, before you do this, it’s very important to wash your face to remove the dirt, makeup, and grime that’s accumulated throughout the day. Without doing so, you can develop clogged pores that may lead to breakouts as well as dead skin cells that start to dull your appearance.
Stopping wrinkles before they ever start is becoming one of the most popular new trends sought by younger individuals. Think about it—undergoing Botox in your later years will still help diminish the appearance of wrinkles, but seeking the treatment now before you’ve developed then will prolong their appearance immensely. Botox for preventative wrinkles tends to work extremely well to combat lines that occur as a result of exaggerated expressions and vertical 11 lines in the middle of our forehead.
3. Use Sunscreen Year Round!
Did you know that even in the winter, our skin is susceptible to sun damage? Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t change the amount of UV radiation we’re experiencing. Do make sure that our skin is protected all of the time, it’s a good idea to continue wearing sunscreen at every time during the year whenever you’re outside. Even though it’s winter, still applying sunscreen to your exposed hands or arms and face can greatly influence the number of wrinkles, sun spots, and fine lines that appear on your face as you age.
