Here’s How to Prevent Premature Skin Aging

Some people say age is just a number, but no one wants to look older than they are. People show age in different ways depending on genetics, environment, and how you take care of yourself. You can’t stop aging from happening altogether, but we can help you slow down its physical signs.

Dontage, located in Falls Church, Virginia, offers a variety of anti-aging treatments and skin care products to help you look and feel as young as can be and even prevent premature skin aging.

Optimize your nutrient levels

Having beautiful skin starts with eating a balanced and nutrient-dense diet. Nutrients such as vitamin A, the B vitamins, and zinc are essential to optimizing your skin’s health. A majority of Americans suffer from a nutrient deficiency yet have no idea their bodies aren’t getting what they need.

Waseem Garbia, PA-C, and his expert team start with a medical consultation to analyze your health and pinpoint any nutrient deficiencies that may contribute to premature skin aging. Waseem can order lab tests and works with you in a one-on-one consultation to create a comprehensive anti-aging plan.

Refresh your skin with a chemical peel

Waseem also may suggest a variety of anti-aging treatments, such as chemical peels, to help you shed years from your appearance.

The top layer of your skin has been exposed to toxins and chemicals and has been damaged by the sun. As a result, you’ve probably noticed your skin doesn’t look as smooth and vivacious as it once was.

Chemical peels are an effective way to say goodbye to that dull top skin layer and welcome in a more youthful layer. Made of hydroxy acids, a chemical peel helps lessen the appearance of wrinkles, dry skin, and age spots.

Any skin type or skin color can benefit from a chemical peel, which makes it a vital service to add to your anti-aging skin care regimen. Plus, you’ll love how your makeup goes on smoother and your beauty products work better after a peel.

Prevent wrinkles from forming with Botox®️

You’ve probably heard how Botox can erase wrinkles. Did you know that it also helps prevent wrinkles from forming? Botox is the leading cosmetic service in the United States because of its safe and impressive results.

Precisely injecting botulinum toxin into muscles of your face where small fine lines typically form can stop wrinkles in their tracks. Botox causes those muscles to relax, smoothing the overlying skin and reducing the occurrence of those wrinkles that develop when you make facial expressions and set in over time.

Step up your at-home skin care routine

Caring for your skin between appointments is important, too. Your at-home skin care regimen — such as moisturizing and exfoliating — plays a vital role in keeping your skin in tip-top shape. Applying SPF daily, regardless of the weather, is one of the best ways to prevent premature skin aging.

Waseem can suggest a variety of skin care products to help you get, and keep, radiant skin. You can buy some of his favorite products at Dontage when you come in for your next appointment.
