The skin is the largest human organ and is the first line of defense against the elements. It endures the intense cold, the extreme heat, and everything in between. Falling asleep with makeup on, sunbathing, sweating, waxing and shaving are just a few of the frequent abusers. With busy schedules and skin slipups, it’s important to invest in your skin, or else you’ll be paying for it later with wrinkles, bags, sags and uneven pigmentation.
Three simple steps will keep your skin fresher and younger, longer. Routine exfoliation, injections and laser treatments will keep skin stay healthy and youthful. Exfoliation is key to removing acne causing dirt and dead skin buildup in the pores. Exfoliation helps encourage new cell growth and with the aide of retinol-based products, can improve the quality of the skin treatment process. Retinol is a variation of vitamin A-derivative tretinoin, an FDA-wrinkle treatment, available by prescription.
Fillers are cosmetic injections used to replace volume that is lost in the inevitable aging process. They can provide long-lasting results without surgery. Fillers such as Radiesse is used for moderate to severe wrinkles, especially nasolabial folds known as “smile lines.” Juvederm is a smooth gel used for fine lines and wrinkles, and is the filler of choice for plumping up lips that have thinned out over the years, or are simply naturally thin. There are several options Dr. Rokhsar can provide his patients, depending on their cosmetic goals.
