Advanced anti-aging treatment can make a huge difference in your appearance. Aging and fine lines, an issue that most people suffer from can be solved by a combination of a good diet, precautions, and a healthy lifestyle. Even though science hasn’t found a sure way of reversing aging but with the help of some treatment options, we can slow it down.
With a sea of offerings available for anti-aging treatments, we enlisted the help of a leading cosmetologist Dr. Dur-e-Shahwar, to help us wade through the options. She did her specialization in Aesthetics and is also a member of the American Academy of Aesthetics.
Let’s see what she has to say about popular anti-aging treatments, an effective skincare regimen, and the best skin care tips!
Q. With winter approaching, how can we effectively take care of our skin?
Well, I believe that you must always tailor your skincare routine according to the skin. With a low level of humidity in the winters and harsh environmental aggressors, your skin rapidly loses its elasticity. Moreover, hot showers also strip the skin of its natural moisture. To counter that, pack on a good quality moisturizer that is suitable for your skin type.
If you are a drier skin type, invest in a “lipid or oil-heavy” moisturizer. Similarly, oily or acne-prone skin types should invest in a “water-based or hydrating” moisturizer.
Drink ample amount of water and slathering on sunblock while “sunbathing” in the winters. The water keeps your skin hydrated and plump and sunblock prevents hyperpigmentation.
Q. How often should one visit a dermatologist?
You should see a dermatologist as soon as you feel a change in your skin. Those changes can include, abrupt dryness, redness, inflammation or an intense breakout. Instead of going to a salon or a pharmacy, you should pay a visit to a qualified professional more capable of handling your skincare concerns.
Q. What are the advanced anti-aging treatments available for anti-aging?
Fortunately today, we have many non-invasive procedures for anti-aging as opposed to surgery. Those include botox, fillers, thread lifts and many more. The most advanced and popular treatment nowadays is HIFU, High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound. This treatment is offered to slow down the signs of aging as it increases collagen production, thereby preventing wrinkles and fine lines.
Q. Give us some dermatologist-approved skincare tips?
Well, I believe good skin care is not that complicated. Don’t overstress your skin with so many skin treatments. This would be my number one tip. Also, keep a good diet. Have a good sleep and don’t forget to take sufficient water. And most importantly, apply sunblock before heading out into the sun.
