The three commonest problems for skin are patchy skin tone, wilting, wrinkles due to aging, pimples and acne, rough nature of the skin, allergies to certain products and sun-damage. The solutions to these problems cannot be found easily. Simply by using the best moisturizer and SPF products and drinking enough water daily it remains difficult to find a permanent cure to these problems. One way to combat these problems is to go for skin rejuvenation methods in which the doctor and cosmetologists use various technologies and medicines to offer you healthier and brighter skin.
One of these methods is FotoFacial which fights against the uneven color of our skin. It consists of two different processes in which intense light or radio waves of high frequency are used and the other step is a microdermabrasion facial. The wave technology is used to lighten the spots and pigments, freckles or redness etc. on your skin while the second facial is used to highlight your glowing skin. The skin gains an even shade throughout, the large pores are closed and the dead cell layers of the skin exfoliate so that the brighter skin is revealed. The light energy and the radio frequency are not used simultaneously. Generally, one is followed by the other, the light energy being used first.
Another method of skin rejuvenation and protecting our skin from problems like sagging and aging is by skin tightening. In this method, the skin is made tight by collagen production. Thus the skin appears tighter and your appearance changes altogether. The process is as simple as before, infrared light and radio frequency enter the skin and heat up the cells.
The heat gives an indication to the skin cells that the damaged skin needs to be repaired. The heat also induces the generation of collagen which binds the skin together and prevents it from sagging. It also takes care of wrinkles and fine lines which are the signs of aging. This kind of treatment lasts for a long time. If it is done under a reputed doctor or cosmetologist it is only after a period of two years or more that you need to go for such treatment again. Along with these treatments, you need to drink a lot of water and eat fresh fruits and vegetables. By contrast, consumption of fast food and spicy foods should be eliminated.
Most people already know that moisturizing is an effective way to keep their complexion looking radiant in the winter months, but theres more than one way to keep your skin healthy when the weather is working against you. From microdermabrasion and chemical peels to sunblock and cleanser, Dermetics has put together a list of skin care tips to keep you looking your best.
What cold weather does to your skin on a cellular level is damage the natural lipid layer, causing it to lose elasticity and create a feeling of tight, dry and itchy skin. Follow these steps this winter to keep your skin comfortable and most importantly, healthy.
1. Turn the heat down. Opting for a lukewarm shower is less demanding on your skin, and allows it to retain more moisture. If you cant give up hot showers, try to cut the down how much time you spend showering. As soon as youve toweled off, use a moisturizer to help your skin retain moisture.
2. Sunblock. Your skin is just as susceptible to UV damage during the winter as it is during the summer. At Dermetics, we recommend using products with an SPF rating of 45 or higher that include UVA protection.
3. Ditch the soap. You should be using a mild cleanser in the colder months so that your skin isnt being too depleted of essential oils and natural moisture. The skin care programs we offer at our Botox Burlington location can be tailored specifically for the winter season.
4. Exfoliate. Exfoliate so that your pores are free of dry or dead skin cells. At Dermetics we offer professional microdermabrasion as well as chemical peels that can greatly increase the efficacy of topical moisturizers and keep your skin healthy. Starting the winter off with a clean slate can certainly help your skin survive the harsher climate.
Keeping these rules in mind can really help your skin get through this coming winter.
