The way that you care for your skin has a huge impact on the way that you look and feel. Healthier skin with an improved complexion has been proven to raise one’s confidence and provide a more positive outlook on life. In fact, twin studies have revealed that glowing skin can be enough to take the equivalent of 10 years off of your appearance. The proper skin care can prevent and correct visible signs of aging and sun damage. Still, patients face a sometimes overwhelming array of choices when it comes to proper skin care due to the vast number of products available and sometimes misleading marketing. “Trying out” all these products is also expensive.
However, using the proper regimen for skin care at home can make a real difference in the appearance of your skin. The products that people use at home have also been proven to enhance the kinds of results they can expect to achieve after in in-office treatments such as peels. The key is finding the right products for both your skin type and your areas of concern, such as fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, sun damage, rosacea, acne and sensitive skin.
A Skin Care Expert
An expert in skin care and cosmetic treatments, Dr. Tracy Pfeifer analyzes the skin of patients in order to suggest products that work with their particular skin type in order to maximize the results of skin care. There are 4 main changes that occur as we age and these start when we are 35 years old! These include loss of collagen, loss of elasticity, changes in our bone structure (the foundation of our face) and a loss of fullness of the deep fat pads (these give us lift and fullness). The proper skin care products boost collagen levels, correct UV and oxidative damage and improve elasticity. One can simply use the proper products or combine skin care with injectable treatments such as Botox and Dsyposrt, fillers such as Juvederm, Voluma, Radiesse, Restylane, Radiesee or collagen stimulators such as Sculptra for optimal results. Remember, fillers don’t have to look weird. The goal is to look like the best version of you.
