Who doesn’t want beautiful skin? Most people desperately want it, but it can be a tricky conquest. Age, sun exposure and acne are fighting it at every turn, so it can be difficult to maintain. Some people maintain it naturally and some people suffer through invasive procedures to regain it. However beautiful skin is achieved, the qualities it possesses can be broken down into three categories. Tone, texture and tightness or “the 3 T’s”.
Tone refers to the color of the skin, with smooth even skin tone being preferred over highly pigmented skin, or skin with red and brown sunspots or rosacea. A desirable skin texture of course should be smooth with small pores. Large inflamed pores, scars, millia and acne are what we look at eliminating when improving skin texture. Tightness is self explanatory but is lost when the skin begins to loose collagen and elastin. This is when wrinkles and skin sagging occur.
There are multitudes of people who are afflicted with uneven skin tone, wrinkles, fine lines and/or sagging skin. And many of them have tried to correct their damaged skin with over-the-counter remedies, only to get disappointing results because their damage was too severe. This doesn’t mean youthful skin can’t be achieved. They may just have to explore some more technical treatments to restore and revive youthful skin.
For uneven skin tone patients may want to consider treatments like Photo Facials, Photorejuvenation, broken capillary treatments, HydraFacials, Microdermabrasion, or Chemical Peels to remove discoloration and reveal even toned skin underneath. To restore smooth texture, wrinkled skin with fine lines, crows feet and acne can be repaired with laser procedures like Microneedling, CO2 Laser Reaurfacing, Pixel Laser Treatment, and RF Pixel. These procedures create microscopic injuries, resurfacing the skin, which is essential to achieving and maintaining a smooth skin texture. Facial fillers that use hyaluronic acid like Restylane and Juvaderm can restore skin’s tightness by giving it more volume. Dysport and Botox injections are also effective at temporarily diminishing wrinkles and fine lines
