Preventative Measures for People in Their 20s and 30s
As is the case with many health-related issues, it is all too easy to neglect professional attention until something happens that negatively impacts our bodies. This is true throughout various health fields, including dermatology and aesthetics. The problem with this delayed approach to receiving skin care is that many of the most prevalent skin conditions materialize not instantaneously, but rather as a result of years of underlying stress and neglect.
When it comes to matters of skin health, it is important that patients not wait until their 40s or 50s to make positive steps toward improvement, but rather seek skin care proactively in their 20s and 30s, when many of the most common skin issues begin to form.
Getting Ahead of Collagen Loss
One of the greatest contributors to several skin issues is loss of collagen, which occurs as we get older. When we’re young, collagen is abundant throughout our skin. The result is a tight, firm, and wrinkle-free complexion. When we get older, however, collagen production begins to slow down, and our skin is left looking tired, old, and full of unsightly wrinkles and folds.
Stimulating Collagen Production with Topical Products
One way to combat collagen loss is to introduce the skin to active ingredients capable of stimulating collagen growth, such as topical products containing vitamin C and other potent antioxidants.
No matter what age you are, a topical skin care regimen should be the foundation of your daily skin routine. Easy to use, relatively inexpensive, and with several effective options on the market, topical skin care products help with a number of skin conditions. Choosing the right combination of products for your specific skin type and needs can make all the difference in the world when it comes to your skin health and beauty, especially if those products stimulate collagen production.
Injectables That are Safe and Reliable
In the past, skin injectables were only really used on older patients experiencing significant volume loss and skin laxity. Today, however, there are several injectables on the market that contain natural ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and are designed to show subtle results.
Products such as Juvederm XC, Restylane, and Radiesse are a few examples of highly effective injectables that can smooth skin, tighten loosening areas, and improve overall skin beauty. If used gradually before skin issues become severe, these products can do wonders in maintaining a natural firmness and volume that keeps patients looking young.
Facial Rejuvenation Services
Other options for preventative skin care include facial rejuvenation services such as microdermabrasion and microneedling. These services are perfect for a wide range of skin types and purposes and help maintain regular exfoliation and skin clarity.
