Title Image Best Option to Get Rid of Sun Damage and Wrinkles

What is the best option to get rid of severe sun damage and wrinkles?

As a plastic surgeon in Arizona, my patients are constantly battling the sun damage from the Valley sun. Skin gets damaged by the sun, weather, and aging. Certain types of professions that involve being in the sun, smoking, and sun bathing accelerate skin damage. Facial treatments are always where I start to reverse the ageing process. For most of my younger patients, I have a host of noninvasive procedures I can offer. However, when it comes to extensive sun damage and deep wrinkles, nothing compares to the Hetter Peel formula. With its active ingredient of croton oil it will address the textural changes of the skin, leaving a healthier and younger appearance. A Hetter Peel gives my patients a lasting effect of a dramatically smoother complexion by tightening the skin and improving the appearance of age spots and pigmentation problems. It also treats wrinkles around the mouth, forehead furrows, and crow’s feet.

Dermacare Introduces New Alto Defense Serum

You may be familiar with the term “free radical damage,” but what you might not know is that your skin is constantly exposed to free radicals, even if you’re not spending hours in the sun. That’s because sources of oxidative stress and damage from free radicals include much more than just UV rays, although they are a large contributor. For example, if you live in an urban setting, the air pollution that constantly bombards your skin can lead to free radical damage. Cigarette smoke and visible and infrared light also contribute to oxidative stress. Living in Arizona, especially during the summer, is extremely difficult on your skin. The skin expects at Dermacare Cosmetic Surgery are excited to have Alto Defense Serum to help their patient’s skin combat the Arizona Sun. And while many of us believe we are taking sufficient precaution by using a daily sunscreen, that may not be enough.

Chemical Peel from Mary at Dermacare

Chemical peels are used to treat a variety of skin issues like acne, wrinkles, discoloration and to maintain a glowing complexion. They come in a variety of strengths and combinations. It is important to seek the guidance of a professional in a medical environment to achieve the desired results and to avoid severe complications. If a chemical peel is acquired through a compounding pharmacy by a licensed physician, it is medical grade. Most chemical peels used in day spas or salons come from skincare companies and they are prepackaged. Although these types of peels are safe, they may have ingredients that can weaken the effects of the chemicals. This can make it more difficult to get the desired results from a chemical peel, as well as increase overall cost from requiring more treatments to achieve good results. If you want to see results from your chemical peel in Phoenix, come to Dermacare Cosmetic Surgery.

Can Your Blood Make Your Skin Look Younger?

Goodyear, AZ — We’ve all cut our skin and noticed how quickly the body responds. This is because the body has several tools to heal itself that work on the microscopic level. One of the most important healing tools that the body uses are platelets in the blood. These small but powerful cells respond to damage in your blood vessels so they can heal you. When platelets are concentrated together it’s called Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP. The therapeutic qualities of PRP have been used in orthopedics for years and show promise for several disorders. Dermacare, a cosmetic surgery office in Goodyear, uses the PRP from patients’ skin and they can’t get enough. Mary, an aesthetician from Dermacare explains, “A surprising number of my women want a PRP facial because they watched Kim Kardashian get one on TV. When they learn how blood can improve their skin, they realize that it’s not just another trendy procedure. The healing properties of the blood do wonders for any skin [type]. It’s more involved than a facial because we filter the patients’ blood, but it’s worth it.
