With all the time you spend taking care of your family, it may seem like you never have a spare moment for yourself. As a result, you may skip some crucial self-care steps, causing signs of premature aging to appear sooner than you’d wish. The good news is that you can simplify your skin care routine and still get excellent results.
The essentials of your stripped-down regimen should include washing your face with a gentle cleanser twice a day, followed by moisturizer. Exfoliate once or twice a week, and wear SPF 30+ sunscreen every time you go outside. If you’re already taking all these steps, you’re doing great! But sometimes, you feel you need to take your anti-aging regimen to the next level. In that case, our dermatologists are happy to recommend their favorite no-fuss treatments to have you looking like a million bucks, even when you’re short on time.
1. Acne Solutions
The demands of motherhood can be stressful, and if you’re prone to stress-induced breakouts, you know how frustrating they can be. At the Dermatology Medical Group of San Francisco, we can recommend acne treatments to give you that healthy complexion you’ve always dreamed of. If you’re searching for a zero-downtime solution, we suggest microdermabrasion or a light chemical peel. Both these treatments gently exfoliate the skin to remove dead cells, promote collagen growth, and reveal your glow.
2. Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers have become all the rage for those fortunate enough to walk the glamorous red carpets of Hollywood, but you don’t have to be a celebrity to realize the benefits of this low-risk, high-reward anti-aging treatment. In one brief, in-office appointment, we can minimize fine lines, acne scars, and any areas where you’re experiencing volume loss – such as your cheeks, lips, or tear troughs. Since fillers consist of biocompatible materials, there’s little danger of an allergic reaction, and you can enjoy your results for up to a year in some cases.
If posing for cute, shareable selfies with your kids has made you uncomfortably aware that you have a bit of extra fullness under your chin, you may be an excellent candidate for Kybella® – the world’s first and only injectable for resolving a double chin. Many of us are genetically predisposed to accumulate fat under our chins with age, and this pocket of fat often doesn’t respond well to diet and exercise. Kybella®’s innovative formula uses deoxycholic acid, a molecule that gradually breaks down dietary fat inside your digestive system. Once this submental fat is gone, it’s gone for good – with no stitches, scarring, or healing time.
