Anti-Aging Skin Care

Anti-Aging Skincare Available to You!

The skin is the body's largest organ, accounting for roughly 18% of an adult's weight. It serves as a protective outer layer that keeps moisture in and keeps out invasive organisms, like infections. 

The best way to maintain healthy skin is to prevent skin damage from occurring in the first place. Wrinkles, age spots, and leathery patches are all the result of skin damage from overexposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun. However, the aging process for the skin is unavoidable. As we age, skin becomes dryer and thinner. Repeated movements of facial muscles, such as frowning, smiling, or squinting, cause wrinkles over time. Stress, gravity, and obesity also contribute to aging skin. And because the skin is thinner, it is more susceptible to bruising. Medical-grade skincare is the best way to keep your skin protected, healthy, and youthful-looking.

Skin Care Routine

Following a healthy skincare routine can reduce the symptoms of aging skin. Be sure to:

  • Wash your face using a gentle cleanser and lukewarm water twice a day. Make sure to pat skin dry; don't rub it dry.
  • Exfoliate the skin twice a week to remove dead cells.
  • Apply a moisturizer to skin immediately after a shower or bath.
  • Wear sunscreen with a SPF of at least 15 every day.
  • If you wear makeup, be sure to always wash it off leaving your skin clean and makeup-free.

Along with your skincare routine, follow these tips:

  • Do not using tanning beds.
  • Maintain a healthy diet and drink plenty of water.
  • Get an adequate amount of sleep every day.
  • Quit Smoking.
  • Avoid stress.
  • Conduct monthly self-examinations of your skin to detect any changes that may lead to cancer.
  • Visit Dermatology of Southeastern Ohio at least once a year for a Total Body Skin Exam (TBSE).

Skin Infections

Anyone who has a break in the skin is at risk for an infection. Using medical-grade skin care products can help treat and prevent skin infections by providing specialized formulations that target the underlying causes, such as bacteria or fungi, while also supporting the skin's natural defense mechanisms. Learn more about different types of skin infections below.

Many bacteria live on the surface of healthy skin. But with a break in the skin, these bacteria can invade the outer layer of the skin and cause an infection and rash. Staph is a common cause of bacterial infections of the skin. Impetigo is one of the most common causes of skin infections in children. Oral or topical antibiotics are used to treat bacterial skin infections.

Viruses are parasitic organisms that can live and grow inside living cells. They cause either a degeneration or a proliferation of the cell. Most causes of viral skin infections are either from Human Papilloma Virus, which causes warts, or Human Herpes Virus, which causes cold sores, chicken pox, shingles, genital herpes, and mononucleosis. Viruses do not respond to antibiotics. Generally, medications are prescribed to help alleviate the symptoms of the infection, such as a rash or itch. Additionally, vaccinations are used to prevent viral infections.

Fungal infections of the human body are called mycoses and affect only the outer layer of the skin. Although seen in all areas of the body, skin mycoses most frequently appear as yeast infections, thrush, athlete’s foot or jock itch.
