OPINION: Dr Ken Romeo 775-870-6942
A wrinkle here. A wrinkle there. The next thing you know you are sitting with your doctor trying to figure out who the best plastic surgeon in town is.
Is this really necessary? Not in the majority of cases if you start early and get serious about skin health.
There is no question that Sun avoidance and sunscreen use are widely accepted strategies of primary prevention against photoaging.
Also, there is convincing evidence that shows that topical application of retinoids has an effect on reversing, at least partially, mild to moderate photodamage.
Antioxidants products and alpha-hydroxy acids can alter the skin structure and function and help with wrinkles and crow’s feet.
If you are willing to spend a small fortune, there are enzymes that repair DNA and m-DNA damage. Also, other agents can be prescribed by your doctor which enhance the endogenous capacity for DNA damage repair.
But to get results like the photo, plastic surgery is necessary. Choose wisely!
Yours in Health!
