Keeping your skin smooth and healthy is one of the most effective things you can do to maintain that youthful appearance that you no doubt want. As time passes by, it has effects on the appearance that most people consider to be undesirable. Keeping those signs of aging away can be done with the help of our experienced cosmetic dermatologist at Integrated Dermatology of Coral Gables. We have a lot of techniques at our disposal to help you regain and maintain that younger look.
One thing that commonly interferes with the appearance of the skin is the presence of dark spots. The good news is that our cosmetic dermatologist can help you get rid of them. Dark spots on the skin can show up over time. They are usually caused by spending too much time in direct sunlight. As a result, concentrated patches of melanin in the skin begin to develop. Melanin is what gives the skin its pigment. Overexposure to the sun can cause it to concentrate in spots rather than spread evenly throughout the skin. Our dermatologist can recommend treatments that will get rid of those spots once and for all. Treatment options may include laser skin resurfacing and intense pulsed light therapy.
Those fine lines and wrinkles that show up with age can be eliminated with treatments that our dermatologist and her team can conduct as well. What causes them to form is the lack of collagen. When you start to get older, your skin will not contain the same amount of collagen that it did earlier. Since collagen is what keeps the skin full, the lack of it will cause the skin to develop lines and wrinkles. There are treatments available that will stimulate the lower layers of the skin to produce additional collagen. This will return it to a level of fullness that it had during the years of youth. Consequently, the lines and wrinkles will disappear.
Acne is another skin problem that can impact the appearance. At times, it can become so severe that it leaves scars that remain long after the acne has been treated. These scars will not go away without the proper treatment. Fortunately, there are methods available to get rid of them. The specific method used will depend on their severity of the condition and your skin type, among other factors. Ask our cosmetic dermatologist about ways to improve your skin if it has been scarred by acne or other unwanted conditions.
