Skin care is a delicate process and should be handled wisely, especially as you age. Your buoyant, supple skin in your 20’s will have different needs compared to your thin, fragile skin of your 70’s. In each era of your life, your skin will need to be handled appropriately, otherwise it will lead to irritation, breakouts or damage. Your skin is the first thing people see when they look at you so maintaining a healthy, vibrant look throughout every age of your life is important. A consultation with Dr. Ted Lain Dermatology will determine your skin type as we discuss the needs of your skin type specific to your age group. As your skin ages, you will need to take precautions to protect your skin throughout your life.

Your teenage years

Up until this stage of life, you might have been oblivious to skin care. But then one day as your hormones surge, breakouts become a new trial in your life and your skin becomes more sensitive to external sources. Combating that stubborn teenage acne is simple with our Skin+Metrics face cleansing and hydrating system. It cleans out your pores and will restore your confidence again.

Your 20’s

During your 20’s, you may still experience the occasional breakout, but your hormones are regulating and these breakouts may happen less often. For some, acne continues to plague them so continuing on with your trusted skincare routine is essential. Using skincare products that are gentle without causing irritation will keep your skin from looking blotchy. Remember, how you care for your skin in your 20’s will add to your skin’s health in your later years.

Your 30’s

In this time frame of your life, you might regret not appreciating the youthful face of your 20’s more. During this phase, you will notice fine lines appear around your eyes and maybe even a few more in your forehead or around your mouth. Breakouts might become less frequent, but you may notice hyperpigmentations, sun spots and dark circles under your eyes. Using a toner to firm your skin and keep your pores clean can do wonders. Do not forget to implement an exfoliation and sunscreen regimen that will keep your skin supple. Filling your diet with foods full of antioxidants will reflect through your skin so avoid the overly processed foods. The Skin+Metrics Dermalux is a perfect solution to protecting yourself from those damaging and harmful UV rays.

Your 40’s

By your 40’s, the age signs on your skin become a big deal because they are more prominent. To hide the signs of age, you may need a more aggressive approach with the help of Dr. Ted Lain Dermatology. Retinol, for instance, is a powerful tool to fight against the signs of aging. It is a form of vitamin A, that once absorbed into the skin, spurs collagen production, diminishing wrinkles and giving a vibrancy to your face. Ask us about the Skin+Metrics Retinol 20 Gel and how it can help you.

Your 50’s and beyond

Gravity is your worst enemy as your age and in your 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, the wrinkles deepen and the sagging worsens. Dr. Ted Lain Dermatology is here to assist you however, to help you age gracefully. With a complete consultation, we can go over the right procedures and skin care products that will help you bring back youthfulness to your skin. We cannot stop the aging process, but helping you age beautifully is our goal.

Dr. Ted Lain Dermatology is excited to be your dermatologist throughout your life. We will be there every step of the way to guide you through the best approach to healthy, vibrant skin. The confidence you will feel in your glowing complexion is priceless and our desire is to help you achieve that. It’s time to bring your skin back to life, make an appointment today.

Laser Treatment for Acne

Posted by | Acne, Skin Care | No Comments

There are few things more embarrassing than an acne covered face. Whether you’re a teen or an adult, a face covered in painful, ugly blemishes makes you feel self conscious and unattractive. These feelings motivate you to do some pretty desperate things, trying all sorts of acne remedies, only to find that your face is more inflamed and angry than before. Putting a variety of chemicals and lotions on your face can tend to shock it, causing your skin to react, your oil glands working overtime to build up a defensive layer of oil, thus creating a bigger acne problem. Dr. Ted Lain Dermatology has a gentle solution for your skin. Stop stressing out your skin with washes and lotions that will just strip your sensitive facial area of the essential oils it needs. We have proven acne treatments that will give you the clear skin you’ve been dreaming of.

Laser Acne Therapy Works Wonders

Dr. Ted Lain Dermatology has the acne solution you’re looking for. Don’t waste anymore time or money on acne removal kits that aggravate your skin. Isolaz laser acne therapy is a painless, effective solution for your stubborn acne problems. This revolutionary treatment combines a gentle vacuum and broadlight to loosen and extract oil, dirt and blackheads deep within your pores. The pulsing broadlight then kills acne causing bacteria as well as decreasing redness and inflammation, giving your skin a chance to recover and heal. Within just one treatment you will notice a marked difference, your pores being clearer and your acne less noticeable. It will take a package of five total treatments before you see the beautiful, clear skin you desire.
