Anti-Aging Q&A

What causes aging?

Aging results when your cells become older and don’t get repaired or replaced as quickly as they used to. Your skin naturally loses its elasticity, firmness, and fullness. This can lead to fine lines and wrinkles, as well as pigment issues and loose, sagging skin.

While aging is a natural process, you can do things that unintentionally speed it up.

Can you slow the signs of aging on your skin?

Everyone’s skin ages, but you can provide your skin the protection and care it needs to delay aging and reduce the signs of it. If you want to slow the signs of aging, Dr. Guerrero recommends:

  • Protecting your skin from the sun with sunscreen and wide brim hats
  • Ceasing smoking cigarettes, which significantly increases your skin’s aging process
  • Avoiding repetitive facial movements like wrinkling your forehead or squinting your eyes
  • Cleansing your skin gently twice a day, removing pollution and makeup with a non-irritating cleanser
  • Moisturizing your face daily to keep it hydrated

What anti-aging treatments are offered?

At Eagle Dermatology, Dr. Guerrero offers a range of anti-aging treatments. Depending on your skincare goals and the signs of aging you’d like to diminish, he may recommend:

Chemical peels

Chemical peels exfoliate your skin, causing the dead skin to peel off and reveal new, more youthful skin underneath. Although these skin treatments have a healing time of up to three weeks, they can vastly improve the look and condition of your skin.

Laser therapy

Dr. Guerrero can use laser treatment to minimize the signs of aging on your skin with minimal downtime required. Laser skin treatments can address fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and age spots, among other ailments.

Microneedling

Using tiny needles to stimulate your body’s natural healing process, microneedling spurs the production of collagen and elastin, proteins your skin needs to stay firm and full. Microneedling can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, scars, and large pores.

Topicals

Topical medications, such as retinoids and hydroquinones, can reduce the signs of aging on your skin and improve your tone and texture. Some topicals may even tighten skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines.
