How to Achieve Your Ultimate Skin Goals

March 15, 2018

Skin care treatments Washington DCIt can sometimes seem like your list of skin goals can go on and on. You want more collagen in your skin, fewer wrinkles, and a evener skin tone all across your face. But, how can you achieve these goals? And is it easy to get the skin that you want? Let’s take a closer look.

Collagen

As you age, your skin starts to thin and lose collagen in it which can result in thin skin and more fine lines and wrinkles. Luckily, here at Chevy Chase Dermatology, we have a variety of treatments that we can use to help temporarily fill in fine lines and wrinkles and increase collagen production. Treatments like fillers, microdermabrasion, photorejuvenation, and laser can all help with your skin’s texture and youthfulness.

Wrinkles

Depending on the location of the lines on your face, we may recommend whether fillers or Botox to help you temporarily find relief from them. Hyaluronic dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane work to temporarily fill in fine lines around the nose, cheeks, and mouth. Whereas Botox, which relaxes the muscles, is used on the forehand and around the eyes.

Even Skin Tone

Another common skin concern that patients have is hyperpigmentation or an uneven skin tone. And although you can use some concealer and foundation to cover it up, if it is caused by an underlying skin condition like rosacea, then you may want to consider one of our treatment options. Additionally, a lot of patients suffer from pigmentation concerns due to sun damage, melasma, skin trauma, or even inherited skin conditions. Luckily, with treatments such as topical retinoids, ascorbic acid, hydroquinone, chemical peels, IPL, microdermabrasion, and laser therapy, we can help you get an evener skin tone.

Getting the perfect skin doesn’t have to be impossible. Are you ready to learn more about our options? Contact our Chevy Chase office at 301-656-SKIN (7546).
