Facial Skin Rejuvenation As you age, the appearance of your facial skin may begin to change. Whether you begin to notice wrinkles, sagging or even age spots, there is a cosmetic treatment available to improve the appearance of your facial skin. Using one or a combination of treatments, your dermatologist is able to effectively reduce or eliminate wrinkles, fine lines, skin discoloration, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, facial redness and facial blood vessels, as well as improving overall skin texture and appearance.

At your dermatologist, there is a variety of treatment options available to rejuvenate your skin and create a youthful appearance. The best skin rejuvenation procedure varies depending on an individual’s skin type, age, ethnicity, sun exposure and overall health. Sometimes a proper skin care regimen will be enough to rejuvenate your skin, but other times your dermatologist might recommend one of the following treatments:

  • Laser resurfacing 
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Photo rejuvenation 

Visiting your dermatologist could just give you the complexion you'ce always dreamed of, and the youthful glow you've been striving for. Call today to schedule a consultation, so we can develop a treatment plan that will bring your self-confidence back.

Skin CareWe all desire to maintain and restore our youthful appearance.  But with hundreds of anti-aging products on the market that promise to make you look younger, finding the right one for your skin can be overwhelming and confusing.  

Rather than buying product after product in an attempt to achieve a more youthful glow, it’s best to find an experienced dermatologist in Peoria who can assess your skin type and problems, and then make recommendations for the best course of treatment.

There are many professional, cosmetic treatments available to help you minimize signs of aging and renew your young, healthy skin. Popular treatments include:

  • Botox
    Botox involves a series of injections which work to relax the muscles that cause facial expressions. It’s a quick procedure that is commonly used to treat frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles.
  • Microdermabrasion
    This non-surgical procedure involves removing the top layer of skin to reveal a fresh, healthy skin underneath.  Microdermabrasion offers many age-defying benefits, including softening fine lines and minimizing scars and shallow wrinkles.
  • Chemical Peel
    Chemical peel treatment involves applying chemicals to the skin to gently exfoliate skin on the face and encourage new skin cells to replace the old, dead ones. Skin peels can take years off of aging skin, and may be a good treatment option for people with sun damage, fine lines or discoloration of the skin.

Not all skin problems require professional treatment. There are other practical ways that you can keep skin looking fresh and healthy every day.

  • Protect your skin from the sun
    Applying sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays is one of the single most important things you can do to prevent brown spots, fine lines and sagging skin caused by repeated sun exposure.  
  • Eat a well-balanced diet
    Regular consumption of fruits, vegetables, water and other foods high in antioxidants and omega-3s can keep your skin from aging.
  • Moisturize
    Lock in moisture and keep skin hydrated by applying lotions or creams daily. Keep skin moist to give the skin a radiant, smooth look.
  • Avoid smoking
    Smoking cannot only lead to cancer and other diseases, but it can also damage your skin. Common side effects of smoking include skin discoloration and fine lines.

You can’t turn back the hands of time, but you can prevent and even reverse some of the visible signs of aging by practicing smart basic skin care and consulting your Peoria dermatologist for professional treatment.
