Blog about facial skin aging from your Cincinnati plastic surgeons
We love the sun. Its warm rays put a smile on your face and erase memories of those cold Cincinnati winters. Besides, you have to admit, everyone looks better with that tan colored glow. Unfortunately, we also have to face up to the problems sun damage creates for your appearance. In fact, sun damage is one of the biggest factors that ages your face.
Several things result from ultraviolet rays beating up your skin. In short, you get uneven pigmentation (age spots and other funky looking lesions), loss of elasticity (creating sagging and wrinkles), and deterioration of texture (from smooth to rough). These are the cosmetic changes. Don’t forget the increased risk of skin cancer.
Skin care is important for two main reasons. First, it can reduce or prevent further sun damage. Second, it can reverse or repair some of the damage that has already occurred.
If extra skin is a problem, skin care is only part of the solution. A facelift, eyelid lifts and brow lift will provide significant improvement and restore a more youthful appearance. Skin care will improve skin texture, skin tone and improve the longevity and quality of your surgical result.
If you want a tan, consider spray tanning. The products that exist these days give natural color and help you avoid the sun damage.
