Treating Sun Damaged Skin
Jan 30, 2014 - 3:35:53 PM
Dr. Batnjiji recommends the use of daily sunscreen to prevent sun damage due to exposure and features high quality products containing SPF on his site; however, patients often come see the doctor requesting that he treat existing concerns. Sunscreen and other preventative measures have been available for years but awareness only recently gained momentum due to the links between skin cancer and ultraviolet light.
Procedures that Benefit Premature Aging Due to Sun Exposure
Laser treatments, dermabrasion, and chemical peel sessions can all benefit skin that has been impacted by a sunny environment or tanning beds. Because of the deep penetration of the sun's rays, the infrastructure of the skin can be compromised. Through these treatments, the building blocks of the skin are stimulated to self-repair. Skin resurfacing procedures can be combined with other procedures, such as facelift or neck lift, to provide patients with optimal results.
A temporary fix, that when repeated can benefit a patient for longer periods of time, are dermal filler injections that plump the skin. Because the sun's rays destroy the skin at its molecular level, the vital structures collapse or become depleted. Injectables can raise the sunken levels of skin to meet surrounding tissue, restoring youth to an aging face. Different types of gels produce varying results. Because of the numerous materials and versatility of injections - Radiesse, Juvederm, Sculptra and others - injectable fillers can virtually be used in any area of the face.
Though administered in a similar fashion as injectable fillers, Botox injects perform a different function. Delivered by needle to the muscles that form lines and wrinkles, this purified neurotoxin prevents the movements of the face that create wrinkles. Though it must be used sparingly to prevent a non-emotive face, it can be combined with other treatments to produce the greatest aesthetic benefits. Skin resurfacing procedures and facial plastic surgeries such as facelift, blepharoplasty, or neck lift are often most beneficial in cases where advanced signs of aging are present. Botox injections can be performed as a standalone treatment, or after the face has healed from surgery or a laser treatment, chemical peel, or dermabrasion session.
