Beauty and a youthful appearance are paramount in society, which you may be attempting to achieve or maintain with exercise, a healthy diet and a skin care regimen that includes daily sunscreen application and wrinkle treatment. However, consulting with a board certified dermatologist and skin clinic for advice is often times necessary to achieve your certain cosmetic goals. A dermatologist and skin clinic can be especially helpful in the summertime when skin issues such as meslasma, uneven skin tone and wrinkles often become more problematic. Los Angeles has numerous dermatologists and skin clinics to choose from, but you should specifically look for a dermatologist and skin clinic with expertise, artistry and skill. It’s also important to consult with a dermatologist and skin clinic with your desired specialties for your cosmetic goals. Dr. Umar is a board-certified, Los Angeles-based surgical dermatologist at the skin clinic FineTouch Dermatology. Dr. Umar is an expert in laser skin rejuvenation, wrinkle treatment, acne scar removal, follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplants and more. His skin clinic is ideally suited to help you achieve your cosmetic goals by providing advice and array of treatments.
MINIMIZING THE NEED FOR WRINKLE TREATMENT WITH SUN DAMAGE PREVENTION
FineTouch Dermatology skin clinic offers skin care advice and wrinkle treatment options that not only protect your skin from future damage, but can also improve appearance. Dr. Umar warns that you need to take more seriously your use of sunscreen to avoid premature aging or worse — skin cancer. A customized skin care regimen from a skin clinic that includes sun protection prevents and reduces the amount and appearance of sun damage and age spots. Sunscreen with a SPF 30+ should be applied daily on your face and areas of your body exposed to the sun. It’s also a good idea to apply sunscreen to the entire body, even under clothing, if you are wearing light clothing. Sunscreen should be applied every two hours when you are in direct sunlight, swimming or sweating.
LASER SKIN REJUVENATION WITH FRAXEL RE:FINE FRAXEL DUAL AND FRAXEL REPAIR
While preventative measures are the best to avoid sun damage, many wrinkle treatment options are available from a skin clinic. This includes cosmetic injectables (Botox, Dysport), dermal fillers (Restylane, Radiesse) and an array of laser skin rejuvenation treatments such as Fraxel. Three Fraxel laser skin treatments are available: Fraxel re:fine, Fraxel DUAL and Fraxel re:pair. Fraxel DUAL is the most popular of Fraxel treatments since it offers effective laser skin rejuvenation and also works on all skin tones. Fraxel DUAL treatments at a skin clinic address arrays of skin conditions, such as mild to moderate acne scars, melasma, age spots and wrinkles. While effective, it’s important to note that patients should avoid sun exposure until skin has completely healed after Fraxel treatments. It’s best to consult with a dermatologist and schedule an appointment at a skin clinic to see which specific Fraxel laser procedure or wrinkle treatment is best for you.
