Anti-Aging Skin Care

The demand for laser resurfacing, wrinkle reduction and skin tightening is growing significantly as more and more people become aware of how to effectively fight the signs of age without undergoing surgery. Non-invasive anti-aging procedures give way to more radiant skin in just a short period of time with little to no pain.

The signs of aging can come at any time. Some may even experience the signs of aging as early at 30 years old; however, making healthy lifestyle decisions, paired with a good skin care regimen, can delay or erase these difficulties.

Anti-aging skin care is one of the most coveted goals in aesthetic medicine. From fine lines and wrinkles to sagging skin and volume loss, it's never too late to get vibrant, beautiful skin.

Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Crinkling and furrowing occur for a number of reasons. Though some degree of wrinkling is unavoidable as we age, consuming nutritious, anti-aging foods and applying beneficial anti-aging products are the best ways to combat these conditions aside from direct treatment. Not everyone requires anti-aging products, particularly younger skin, but by the age of 30, it's a good idea to make the switch to cosmeceuticals that offer solar protection, exfoliation, and toning, as well as other favorable properties. The sooner a person begins, the slower the signs of age appear.

Anti-aging skin care systems normally include cleansers, toners, and moisturizing products that work together to create optimal results. Choose the best products suited to your specific needs to help banish certain symptoms, like acne, dryness, fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. Nutrient-carrying ingredients are always better, as opposed to fragrances, which normally only make a product smell and look appealing but offer no substantial benefits.

Skin Laxity & Volume Loss

Sagging happens when the skin no longer produces as much collagen and elastin over time, resulting in skin that is no longer firm and taut. Although genetics are the strongest indicators of how our skin behaves, the environment and what we put into our bodies also dictate how our skin maintains its strength over time. Rapid weight loss, certain sleeping positions, and tugging on the delicate facial skin can also cause a decline in volume.

Laxity is another major concern when it comes to healthy, vibrant skin. Lax skin increases the appearance of cellulite and can worsen fine lines and wrinkles. This symptom can occur anywhere on the body, but is more noticeable on the face, along the jaw line and cheeks. However, it can occur on the thighs, buttocks, and hands as well.

Skin Texture

The skin has a wide range of textures, from tight and sturdy to crepey and thin. The look and feel of your skin widely depends on both internal and external factors, such as damage from UV rays, diet, exercise, and stress levels. It's important to utilize products that help to revitalize your skin and keep it looking its best.

Anti-aging systems typically contain ingredients, such as retinol and alpha hydroxy acids, which have been proven to polish and hydrate, filling in wrinkles as new skin emerges. As we age, cell turnover decreases, increasing the need for exfoliation in order to keep the skin looking vibrant. Rejuvenation therapy works wonders for those in need of moisture and suppleness. For severe symptoms, resurfacing treatments are available to reveal fresh, glowing skin. Ask The Skin Studios about specialized procedures and how they can work for your unique problem areas.

Sun Damage & Sun Spots

Each year, millions of patients are treated for melanoma and other forms of skin cancer, which occur when cells are damaged by sun exposure. Because skin cancer has the potential to invade the body and even lead to death, protecting yourself from overexposure to UV rays is vital.

It is important to know the signs of pre-cancers, such as actinic keratosis, a scaly crust that is caused by sun damage. Almost all pre-cancerous symptoms can be banished if pinpointed early and can be alleviated when undergoing the right procedure. At The Skin Studios, our Lake Charles, Louisiana, team uses topical medications and chemical peels to treat, manage, or even eliminate pre-cancerous concerns, depending on the severity of the sun damage.

Facial Veins

Spider and varicose veins are caused by genetics, diet, exercise, and high-blood pressure. These unsightly veins usually occur in women more often than men. Both spider and varicose veins are similar and likely to appear on the legs and feet, but can show up on the face around the nose and eyes.

Spider veins are clusters of small blood vessels that show through the skin, typically resembling small blue, red or purple spider legs, while varicose veins tend to form in lumpy clusters, caused by a weakening of the vein wall. Though both afflictions are no cause for medical concern, many people who experience them frequently feel tingling, burning, or itching. The Skin Studios offers a minimally invasive approach to facial vein treatment, implementing light remedies to erase swollen and tarnished veins.
