If you are like most people, you likely didn’t care about your skin when you were growing up. Days were spent on the beach lathered in oil, and sunscreen was either never purchased, or when it was, it was left at home. Although those days may be looked at with fondness, they didn’t do your skin any favors. If you have a lot of sun damage and fine lines and wrinkles, you may be looking for a magic wand to reverse those signs of aging. And although we at Twin City Plastic Surgery can’t perform any magic— other than maybe juggling and a few card tricks— we can help you reverse the signs of aging. Read on to learn more.
Regular Chemical Peels
It may sound expensive at first, but the results you will see will save you money on skincare products and other procedures in the long term. By getting regular chemical peels, you can get rid of the top few layers of your skin— the epidermis— where fine lines and wrinkles like to hang out and encourage the growth of newer, skin that has more elasticity.
If you want to reverse the signs of aging, consider getting a surgical procedure done like a facelift. By surgically lifting your skin and tightening it, there is no better way to reverse signs of aging while getting results that last.
Use Retinol Creams
Either bought over-the-counter or in prescription strength, face creams and lotions that contain retinol can also reverse the signs of aging. Similar to how chemical peels work, retinol targets the top few layers of your skin and cause them to peel off. In this process, new skin takes its place— leaving you with a more youthful looking complexion.
