The Importance of Skin Treatments
When it comes to your complexion, looking great often takes some behind the scenes magic. Dermatological skin treatments can help your skin look younger, brighter and keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay. Learn more with help from your Encinitas, CA dermatologist at North County Dermatology Center.
Keeping your skin looking great is easy with help from your dermatologist. Treatments such as microdermabrasion deeply exfoliate the skin using a specialized machine. Injectable fillers help plump the cheeks and lips to give a more youthful appearance. Fillers also work to smooth wrinkles and fine lines. Chemical peels, laser treatments, light therapy and skin tightening treatments all rejuvenate your skin to provide a younger and brighter appearance.
How your Dermatologist Can Help
Your appointment begins by gathering your medical and family history. Your Encinitas doctor performs a physical examination to understand your skin and which treatments you may need. Most dermatological treatments take place in-house and only take a few minutes to complete. Work with your dermatologist to determine which treatments are best for you and your skin’s condition.
Protection From the Sun
One of the most effective and easy ways to keep your skin looking young is to prevent sun damage before it happens. Additionally, protecting your skin from the sun prevents potentially life-threatening skin cancer. Always avoid the sun’s rays, especially from 10AM to 4PM when they are strongest. If you must be outside, try to stay in the shade as much as possible. Wear a hat with a wide brim, sunglasses with protection from UV rays and clothing which covers your skin.
