A smooth, clear complexion is an attribute of physical attractiveness, but facial skin requires proper care and protection from the sun’s harsh rays. The face is also subject to acne, rashes, allergic reactions, and injuries that may leave permanent scars.
A number of skin care treatments are available for individuals who want to eliminate or soften imperfections on their facial skin and achieve a clearer, fresher look. These treatments include vitamin C and glycolic acids, which are fruit acids used to eliminate rough or dried surface skin; and Retin-A ® and retinols, which change the cellular metabolism of the skin’s surface and are used to reduce fine facial wrinkles, thicken the skin and decrease blotches from sun damage.
Another critical component of daily facial care is sunscreen. The face is the part of the body most exposed to damaging UV rays of the sun; therefore, daily sunscreen use is highly recommended for general skin health and to decrease the development of uneven pigmentation or brown spots, wrinkles and skin cancer.
A properly constructed skin care regimen is a mix of art and science, which is customized for every patient. Dr. Hosn and his knowledgable staff will analyze your skin and recommend the techniques and products that may benefit you. Each of these treatments can be used alone, or may prescribed in conjunction with fillers or an aesthetic surgery procedure, such as a facelift, laser resurfacing procedure or a chemical peel.
