Best Anti-Aging Skin Care Ingredients
There are a variety of treatment ingredients which can help your skin appear more youthful, but it’ll take time. You may see improvement within a few months, but you shouldn't expect to look like you’ve stepped out of a time machine.
Let’s go through some important ingredients and treatments here, while understanding the perfect product or procedure for your skin will likely be different than someone else as skin types and the particular issues for each person is different.
What works best for you will depend on your skin and the particular issue you are seeking to improve.
For Wrinkles: Retinol, Vitamin C
Retinols help with fine lines, making your skin smoother by spurring your skin to produce collagen, a protein in your skin, muscles and bones. Products with vitamin C may help lessen skin damage from the sun. Botox and Dermal Fillers of course are also excellent options.
At Forever Slender MedSpa, we offer a fantastic, free skin analysis which will be the best skin analysis you’ve ever had! We will use that analysis to guide you to the most appropriate treatments to meet your skin needs.
For Sagging Skin: Peptides, Ceramides
Treatments with topical growth factors or peptides help firm sagging skin. Peptides are groups of amino acids that help make proteins, including collagen. That's the main protein found in your skin.
Daily moisturizer with ceramides -- fats found in the layers of your skin that you lose as you age -- are an option, too -- and they're usually cheaper. Of course, Microneedling and is always a great option too!
For Dull Skin: AHAs, Retinoids
If you smoke or have dry skin, your skin may lack that glow we all want. A moisturizer may make it look fuller and firmer. Alpha hydroxy acids and retinoids could brighten your skin when they remove dead skin cells. Another option is our super popular Hydrafacials.
For Age Spots: Retinoids, Vitamin C
Retinoids and Vitamin C help fade age spots when you use it for 12 weeks but make sure you use wear sunscreen as your dark spots may come back if your skin gets too much sunlight.
For Uneven Skin Tone: AHAs, Retinoids
Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and Retinoids remove dead skin cells which helps reveal new cell with a more even tone. Another super popular treatment we offer at Forever Slender MedSpa to treat uneven skin tone is the Chemical Peel.
When Should I Apply these Products?
Vitamin C products should be applied in the morning, Retinols at night because sunlight might stop retinols from working. Apply moisturizer daily if you have dry skin or if you want it to look more youthful. A good moisturizer will help to plump your skin.
