Frequently, we are asked what steps are needed for anti-aging when it comes to skincare at our Austin plastic surgery practice. Here are the basic four things that help reverse the signs of aging.
- Retinols - Repair and Regenerate: Retinols decrease the thickness of the outmost layer of skin, stimulate skin cell turnover, and increase the collagen content of the skin giving it a more translucent appearance.
- Antioxidants - Prevent ongoing damage: Antioxidants decrease the presence of harmful oxidants and inflammation. This protects the skin from the negative effects of UV light.
- Growth Factors - Repair and Regenerate: Growth factors have shown statistically significant improvements in skin radiance, skin smoothness, skin tone, fine lines and the overall photo-aged appearance of the skin.
- SPF (Sunblock/Sunscreen) - Prevent ongoing damage: Sunscreens block UVA/UVB rays so that there are no destructive effects from free radical damage to skin. Thus, sunscreen helps to preserve collagen, elastin, and prevent hyperpigmentation promoting a healthier, more youthful appearance of skin.
