The skin is the largest organ on the body. It is also exposed to the elements, making it at a much higher risk for early aging and skin cancer.
Prevention is at the forefront of what we educates our patients about when it comes to skin care. Protecting the skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays is essential for reducing the risk of skin cancer. The UV rays in sunlight deteriorate collagen and can cause skin to develop an extreme lack of moisture and noticeable laxity. It can create sunspots, have permanent effects on pigmentation, and most importantly, can result in the development of skin cancer. Skin cancer is one of the fastest growing types of cancers and is caused by UV exposure. Patients are encouraged to visit the practice at least once a year for an annual skin cancer screening performed by our dermatologist.
Next, we will talk to patients about maintaining their skin. This may include planning a skin care regimen for home use. This may include cleansers, toners, moisturizers, and exfoliating products that are fortified with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that can improve the skin and reduce the obvious signs of aging.
An individualized skin care regimen may also include regular treatments such as chemical peels, facials, or laser rejuvenation that can be done periodically for continued improvement in the skin. These are often easy to integrate into skin care regimens and patients can maintain their results with their at-home care solutions.
