If you ask any woman what they would most like out of their skin, smoothness is likely one of the most common answers they will provide. Skin smoothing treatments help a lot with the look and texture of the skin – and they minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, fillers and various other methods are used to smooth out the skin, but keeping the facial tissue healthy first starts at home.
Exfoliating twice weekly keeps dead and dry skin cells from dulling the complexion. Gentle facial scrubs slough away dry skin and hydrate the newly exposed cells for a renewed, brightened appearance. After showering, apply a nightly moisturizer to the skin to keep cells rejuvenated. Exfoliating is important for two reasons:
- It removes the dry skin cells from the surface of the face, which causes the skin to look dull and aged.
- Exfoliating boosts circulation and promotes cell renewal, leading to healthier skin
Keep skin looking smooth and youthful by applying an ample amount of sunscreen to exposed areas of the skin before going outside. Ongoing sun exposure leads to a breakdown of the collagen and elastin in the skin, leaving behind thinning, drooping skin around the eyes and mouth. Don’t forget – skin will develop sagging, fine lines and wrinkles naturally because of the aging process. If you find that you still would like to improve the look and texture of the skin even after implementing these suggestions, many skin care centers provide innovative treatments to improve the appearance and feeling of the skin.
Fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm, plump up areas of the face that are losing volume because of the aging process. Thinning lips, sagging skin and fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, forehead and mouth, commonly referred to as ‘expression lines’, are all minimized with the help of fillers. An advantage of using fillers is that each patient has different needs – so you can subtly improve the trouble areas of the skin without a drastic treatment. Results are long lasting, but not permanent – so if you don’t prefer the look of fillers in certain areas of the face they do begin to fade within a year.
Finding a skin care specialist who provides filler treatments should be done with care to ensure you find quality products and an experience physician. Never look for the most convenient or cheapest options, as you never know if the quality or expertise is compromised.
