Nonsurgical Options for Younger-Looking Skin
By Atlanta Plastic & Reconstructive Specialists, on January 19, 2016
Wrinkles, creases, fine lines and sagging skin are all common signs of aging. While no one can stop the natural aging process, there are ways one can “turn back the clock.” In this month’s blog post, the Atlanta Plastic & Reconstructive Specialists share how you can get younger-looking skin without undergoing surgery.
Skin Care Products
Investing in the right skin care products is key to preserving youthful skin. Your skin care regimen should include a gentle yet effective moisturizing serum, such as myBody’s moisturizing lotion, which repairs damaged skin using essential pro-biotics. Be sure to regularly use a cleanser, like Obagi Medical’s Gentle Cleanser which removes makeup and everyday impurities for a clean, radiant complexion. Proper sun protection is also imperative to protect against premature wrinkles, lines and age spots. Consider using Obagi Medical’s Sun Shield Matte Broad Spectrum SPF 50, which is fragrance-free and safe for all skin types.

Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin rejuvenation rejuvenates your complexion and helps you enjoy beautiful skin. A CO2 laser is used to vaporize old and damaged skin cells on the superficial layer of skin. This allows the body to produce new, healthy skin cells for a smoother, more radiant complexion. Laser skin resurfacing can be used to treat facial wrinkles, uneven skin pigmentation, redness and age spots.
Botox offers a “quick fix” to facial signs of aging by temporarily relaxing the muscles underneath the skin. The injectable treatment can be used to smooth out horizontal wrinkles, brow furrows, crow’s feet around the eyes, and horizontal lines on the neck. Results are temporary; our plastic surgeons recommend repeat treatments every three to four months to maintain the results.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Dermal fillers use a smooth gel made of hyaluronic acid to fill in facial lines and folds for youthful-looking, supple skin. They can be used to restore volume to hollow or sunken areas of the face or to plump up thin lips. Treatment with fillers should be repeated every few months to maintain the results.
