When we’re older, can we get that fine, even, dewey look again?
Hmm, I’m guessing we would all wish for that. It’s possible to turn that clock back quite a bit but probably not that far!
Here are my votes if you are 70:
- Make sure your daily products are working in your favor. You need at least a high zinc sunscreen every morning, a retinoid cream every evening and a high quality antioxidant. Examples would be the SkinCeuticals Phoretin CF Gel with NeoCutis Journee Day Cream with SPF 30 over that in AM and the SkinMedica Retinol or Renova at night. A basic gentle cleanser and moisturizer are fine.
- Consider doing 3 fractionated (NOT the older CO2) CO2s over 12-18 months – read about these fractionated lasers here in detail to really educated yourself and remember the most important thing is the expertise. Then look for an office with the DEKA DOT, the Affirm or the Lumenis Active/Deep Fx.
- If you still have a few brown spots after that, a Fraxel Dual laser will usually remove those that remain.
Hope this helps, Dr. I
