Are you putting your best anti-aging efforts forward? Sometimes, no matter how well-intentioned you are, it’s easy to make mistakes that get in the way of achieving and maintaining your healthiest, most beautiful skin. But here’s some good news: It’s never too late to correct bad habits! If aging gracefully is on your to-do list (which we hope it is!), we want to help you avoid some common anti-aging blunders and give you the proper tools to overcome them:

Anti-Aging Mistake #1: Waiting too long to get treatments.

It’s much easier to prevent signs of aging and sun damage than it is to reverse them. This is why we encourage you to start professional skin treatments before you think you “need” them. The key is to renew your skin regularly when you’re younger, aka when your skin cells have a faster turnover rate and when your collagen and elastin levels are high. Because with age, these levels drop, and cellular turnover slows, leading to a lackluster complexion. But with professional skin rejuvenation treatments that exfoliate and stimulate new skin growth, you can keep your skin youthful and glowing strong for years to come. And there are so many options to choose from, including laser skin resurfacing, IPL photofacials, chemical peels and more. While different, all these treatments work to stimulate your skin’s natural healing process, triggering new collagen and elastin growth for stronger, more supple skin! So, what are you waiting for? Create a skin renewal regimen that works for you by scheduling your consultation with the AlluraDerm MD team today!

Anti-Aging Mistake #2: Not building an at-home skin care regimen.

A good skin care routine is essential. Which is why we recommend medical-grade skin care to our patients again and again to enhance the results of their professional treatments and correct common skin concerns like fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, redness and scarring. Formulated with a higher concentration of active ingredients (i.e., hyaluronic acid, growth factors, peptides, acids, retinols, antioxidants, etc.), medical-grade skin care can penetrate your skin at a deeper level than other products. To help you make good on your “skin-vestment,” we proudly carry clinically proven products from SkinCeuticals® and SkinMedica®, two advanced skin care lines based in science and designed to correct previous damage, prevent future damage and protect healthy skin. To find the right products for you, our skin care experts will design an at-home regimen unique to your needs and goals.

Anti-Aging Mistake #3: Not using daily SPF.

All the treatments and products in the world will be for nothing if you’re not protecting the health and beauty of your skin every day with sunscreen. If you didn’t know already, the #1 contributor to skin aging is sun damage. That means wrinkles, age spots, uneven skin texture… the list goes on and on. But with medical-grade, broad-spectrum SPF products, you can help protect your skin’s youthfulness. Proper skin care at AlluraDerm MD means finding the right sun protection to suit your skin. We offer advanced sun care options from SkinCeuticals and SkinMedica, including SkinCeuticals’ Daily Brightening UV Defense SPF 30 and SkinMedica’s Total Defense + Repair Broad Spectrum SPF 34. And when you do apply your sunscreen, don’t forget to cover ALL your skin, including your neck, hands and décolleté. During your consultation, our skin care experts will help find the products and regimen best suited for your unique skin care needs and goals
