Corrective skin analysis results in improvements to Milpitas patients' sun damage
Living in the Bay Area, you are blessed with an abundance of sun. Yet the sunlight that is responsible for lifting your mood and is the leading source of beneficial Vitamin D is also reportedly responsible for upwards of 90 percent of the visible changes attributed to "natural" skin aging.
The visible changes associated with exposure to the ultraviolet light from the sun and tanning beds and lamps include:
- Uneven tone
- Brown spots
- Visible blood vessels
- Dry, leathery texture
Chronic tanning or regularly forgoing proper sun protection can hasten the effects of aging. For instance, significant exposure to UV light can break down the elastin fibers that help your skin resume its shape after it is stretched. These and other naturally occurring substances such as collagen proteins break down on their own as you get older. The loss of elastin and collagen makes your skin appear lined, wrinkled, and saggy, and less youthfully defined and contoured. When you don't use sunscreen or if you smoke and practice other bad habits, your skin can appear older than your actual age.
It is never too late to embrace the good habits that result in an improved appearance and restore self-confidence. The Center for Dermatology Cosmetic and Laser Surgery's specialists offer skin analysis, whereby a number of characteristics will be examined, including skin texture, tone, pigmentation, hydration, and conditions such as eczema and rosacea. This thorough examination gives us an accurate picture of the overall condition of your skin so a treatment plan may be tailored to effectively correct features that detract from your appearance.
Since prevention is always preferred to treatment, The Center for Dermatology Cosmetic and Laser Surgery will recommend skin care products that work best with your skin. Some conditions may require more powerful prescription medications than those found in the store. Dr. Dhawan and his team may also suggest therapies such as laser and light therapies, chemical peels, and dermal fillers to treat the common age and lifestyle related concerns mentioned here, including uneven tone, lackluster or sallow complexion, and volume loss.
