For centuries people have tried to reverse the aging process by applying various creams and lotions to their skin. Recently, products have been developed that actually stimulate skin regeneration and improve the skin’s texture, tone, and pigmentation. Retin A®, glycolic acid, antioxidants and other topical products are used to restore the skin. Over the counter products may provide some improvement, but the improvement is limited. In order to attain and maintain healthy skin, it is important to care for your skin on a daily basis. As skin ages, collagen, elastin and hayaluronic acid start to break down and cell turnover slows down. The breakdown of these building blocks can cause skin to look dull, discolored, tired and can even lead to lines and wrinkles. We believe a prescribed program of medical grade products may offer significant advantages. To achieve optimum skin improvement, a combination of medical grade skin care and in office skin treatments may be recommended. Surgery is designed to treat sags and bags and reshape tissue, but it cannot put the life back in aged or damaged skin.
