Protect It From Damage
Start by protecting your skin from sun damage. No matter how old you are or how good or bad your skin is currently, protecting your skin is essential to improving its appearance, tone, and texture.
Sun damage can cause wrinkling, dryness, and discoloration. In the worst cases, it can also cause skin cancer. Take the following steps to protect your skin:
- Always wear sunscreen when you go outside and reapply it throughout the day.
- Stay indoors when the sun is directly overhead and UV rays are more powerful. In general, it is best to stay inside or in the shade between 10 am and 4 pm.
- Wear hats and sunglasses to provide your face with extra protection.
- Remember to wear extra sunscreen in higher elevations or when you are spending time in the water.
Keep It Hydrated
Keeping your skin hydrated will help it look soft and healthy. Keep it hydrated from the outside by using lotion and moisturizer each day. Apply it after you shower in the morning.
It also helps to hydrate your skin from the inside by drinking enough water throughout the day. Be careful about caffeinated beverages and alcohol, because they can dry you out if you don’t drink enough water.
Ask Your Dermatologist About Juvashape
Juvashape is a treatment that uses radio frequency to penetrate the skin and improve texture and tone. The treatment uses a device called The V-Shape . Two types of radio frequency energy are used: Bi-Polar RF energy and Uni-Polar RF energy.
Bi-Polar RF energy is used to stimulate collagen, which can improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It can also improve skin laxity.
Uni-Polar RF energy is used to increase circulation and blood flow. This can strengthen the skin tissue, and improve texture. This also causes deep thermal heating, which can help eliminate retained fluids.
