What is Botox?
If lines and wrinkles are slowly beginning to define your face and are leaving you feeling discouraged about your appearance, we have good news: there is an answer.
Simple daily routines can pay dividends later in life to prevent
wrinkles,sun spots (solar lentigos), skin cancer along with many other
benefits. The number one recommendation is to use a daily SPF rating
of 30, broad spectrum, or greater. The key to successful sun
protection is reapplying sunscreen every two hours while exposed, more
frequently when swimming or sweating excessively.
Another anti-aging recommendation which also aids in partial damage
correction is the use of a topical retinol (OTC) retinoid (RX)
product. Topical retinol products have been proven to reduce fine
lines and wrinkles, roughness, lentigines (sun spots), actinic
keratoses (pre-cancer lesions) and also acne. There are many over the
counter (OTC) retinol products. If a patient is seeking a stronger
formulation we offer medical grade skincare lines or stronger
prescription strength products. Normal use of retinol products can
show improvement within 3-4 months and may be used long term to
prevent age related skin conditions. Retinol products should only be
used nightly as tolerated by applying a pea sized amount to the finger
then dabbing around the face before rubbing into the skin, followed by
a high quality moisturizer.
