Your NY Facial Plastic Surgeon Can Help with Rejuvenating Aging Skin
When we are young, maintaining healthy, supple facial skin is a fairly simple matter. Application of a daily moisturizer with sunscreen to protect facial skin from sun exposure, use of a night cream to hydrate the skin and replenish natural oils, and biweekly exfoliation to remove dead skin cells are generally all that are required to keep facial skin healthy and wrinkle free. However, as we age, the texture and condition of our skin changes.
During our middle years, the first fine lines begin to appear around the eyes and an occasional brown spot may mar facial skin.
These early signs of skin damage are the result of cumulative exposure to the sun and environmental pollutants exacerbated by the natural decrease in collagen production that occurs as we age. Such mild skin damage can usually be minimized by enhancing our skin care routine with the daily addition of antioxidant serums to protect the skin, the use of retinoid or retinol and peptide products on alternate nights to stimulate collagen production, and the twice daily application of an eye cream to hydrate delicate skin around the eyes.
Eventually, however, gravity and age will overwhelm even the most careful skin care regimen; and topical products will no longer be enough to ward off the development of facial wrinkles and sagging skin. Fortunately, when nature starts to fail you, you do not have to succumb to the ravages of age. But you will have to adopt a more aggressive skin care program to push back the years and rejuvenate your facial skin. Board-certified Manhattan facial plastic surgeons like Dr. Edward Kwak offer a full range of non-surgical skin treatments, wrinkle treatments and lip enhancement treatments that fight the effects of aging and leave skin smooth, clear, supple and more youthful looking.
