We always notice when someone has a refreshed glow to their appearance. Facial aging is partly genetic, but there are environmental hazards that we can avoid to help maintain a rejuvenated look.
A healthy lifestyle, dealing with stress in a positive way, good nutrition and proper sleep are all important in maintaining a youthful radiance.
Avoid and protect yourself from the damaging effects of the sun and tanning beds. When ultraviolet (UV) light hits the skin it, cells in the dermis produce melanin which gives you a tan. This is really just your skin trying to stop the damaging UV rays from penetrating your skin. Pigmentary changes and blotchiness can be left behind from this sun damage. These changes can be reversed with our Cutera Limelight (IPL) or FRAXEL lasers.
You should always check your skin for moles that are changing or new spots that are growing or not healing. If concerned these should be brought to the attention of your doctor to rule out skin cancer.
