Skin Care FAQs
Can I look younger through good skin care alone?
Yes. Taking care of your skin by following a good daily skin care regimen, staying out of the sun whenever possible, wearing sun block every day, eating a healthy diet, and drinking plenty of good water will help you look younger. More advanced skin care procedures available at our Tampa office, such as regular microdermabrasion and alphahydroxy peels, can keep your skin fresh and healthy for an even more youthful appearance.
Are there procedures which can get rid of wrinkles in my face without surgery?
Yes. Procedures such as microdermabrasion and alphahydroxy peels can diminish fine lines and reduce wrinkles. Laser skin resurfacing goes even deeper and can go as far as significantly smoothing deep wrinkles.
How can I get rid of age spots?
Bleaching agents, such as hydroquinone or Kojic acid, can gradually fade age spots. When combined with peels, Retin A, or microdermabrasion, these skin care treatments are have a more dramatic effect.
What can microdermabrasion do for me?
By removing the outer layer of dead skin cells and stimulating collagen production, microdermabrasion can rejuvenate your skin in many ways. It can smooth fine lines, reduce acne scars, reduce hyperpigmentation, and reduce sun damage.
What can an alphahydroxy peel do for me?
An alphahydroxy peel sloughs off dead skin cells, promotes new cell growth and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. This can diminish fine lines and wrinkles, reduce age spots, improve acne, reduce sun damage, improve rough skin, and diminish large pores. The result is healthier, younger looking skin.
I don’t have time for a complicated skin care regime. Can’t I just have plastic surgery instead?
Of course you can always choose to have surgery, but the results will be much better and longer lasting if you take good care of your skin. At the Elite Facial Plastic Surgery we believe in tailoring our skin rejuvenation treatments to fit Tampa men and women’s lifestyles. Our aesthetician will help you choose a combination of products designed to produce maximum results in a simple, convenient daily regimen.
Why do I need to stay out of the sun?
The sun is the largest contributor to aging of the skin. Sun exposure causes wrinkles, age spots, and potentially cancer. You need to protect yourself from the sun to get the best results from your surgery or skin care procedure.
