Investing in your appearance doesn’t have to be time consuming or complicated. Many of my patients interested in skin care in San Diego choose low-downtime treatments to get the results they want quickly and easily. If you want to improve the look of your skin – whether by reducing dark spots, clearing acne or softening wrinkles – here are my no-hassle recommendations.
1. Try a facial
Facials are an affordable, effective way to improve a mottled complexion. Facials come in a variety of formulations and contain active ingredients to correct common skin problems such as oiliness, splotchiness and roughness. Many of my patients choose facials because they provide a quick way to look refreshed and require no downtime. Some of the facials I offer can be used to address:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Dull skin
2. Invest in injectables
Injectable treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers are extremely effective for those interested in reversing signs of aging. The treatments take very little time to perform and can last for 3 to 6 months, or sometimes even longer. I often use injectables to treat laugh lines, “crow’s feet” and forehead creases.
3. Be sun smart
Sun exposure is one of the primary causes of facial aging. That’s why it’s crucial that you wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with UVA/UVB protection every day. Ultraviolet radiation breaks down collagen and elastin, the proteins that give your skin its youthful qualities. This deterioration causes the skin to lose elasticity and leads to sagging, wrinkled skin. If you’ve already had a little too much fun in the sun, laser skin treatments can help minimize the damage by boosting collagen production.
