It’s Healthy Skin Awareness Month! How Healthy is Your Skin?
The appearance of your skin can say a lot about your overall health. Radiant, clear skin not only helps you feel beautiful, it can also indicate if your health habits need a little adjusting. This November is Healthy Skin Awareness Month, which is the perfect opportunity to review the health of your skin and learn what you can do to improve your skin’s appearance. Read on to learn some skin health issues and what you can do to get your skin glowing again.
Help! My skin is breaking out!
Breakouts can be caused by many different factors; hormone imbalances, the wrong kind of skin care, poor eating habits, and changes in the weather have all been attributed to acne. Start your Hollywood-worthy skin routine by eating a healthy diet including fruits and vegetables and drinking plenty of water. If you skin is still breaking out it might be time to take a look at the skin care products you are using on your face. If you are having very bad breakouts, a clarifying acne treatment at our Delaware medical spa may help re-align your skin.
My skin is covered in fine (or deep) lines.
Too much sun exposure and time can aid in the development of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. Other habits like smoking or frowning can cause wrinkles over time. For particularly deep lines, like those around the mouth and nose, our center offers Restylane® or Juvederm® injections to temporarily fill wrinkles. Often, Botox injections can help smooth fine lines.
I have scarring from past acne.
Scarring from acne can create a dimpled appearance and may change the tone of your skin. Patients who have acne scars have multiple options depending on the severity of the blemishes. For light scaring, redness, or pitting, microdermabrasion may be an effective option. During microdermabrasion, the top layer of skin is gently scrubbed off, leaving a smoother texture and tone. For deeper pitting, dermal fillers can help even the texture of skin.
Whoops! I neglected my sunscreen this summer.
Fist, make sure you always use sunscreen, no matter what time of year. Second, unsightly sunspots, red marks, and even fine lines from sun damage can be reduced with a chemical peel. During a chemical peel, the practitioner uses chemicals to remove outer layers from facial skin. Depending on your skins needs, the cosmetic professional will select what level of treatment intensity is needed.
My face is thinning as I age.
As we age, the face can become hollow appearing due to a loss of elasticity and flexibility. For very deep hollows, dermal fillers like Restylane® or Juvederm® can help restore a fuller complexion that’s associated with a more youthful appearance.
Beautiful skin is achievable. Good eating habits, staying hydrated, and taking a multivitamin can help keep your skin healthy. Modern advances, like those mentioned above can also provide a way to turn back the clock.
