BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jun 12, 2014) - According to Boston plastic surgeon Leonard Miller, MD, early signs of facial aging and sun damage commonly begin to surface when people reach their late twenties and early thirties. Although preventing the natural aging process in its entirety is not possible, Dr. Miller says there are several advanced skincare and laser treatment solutions that may be able to help slow the inevitable effects of aging.
As noted in Anti-Aging Skincare Recommendations for Your 20s and 30s -- a recent blog post on Dr. Miller's website -- "The key for treating early signs of aging and sun damage for younger patients is to utilize more mild, superficial treatments as opposed to ablative or deep resurfacing procedures." The Boston plastic surgeon and his team of aestheticians offer a number of treatment options that fit this description, including:
Fractional laser treatments
Clear + Brilliant™ laser treatments
Assorted skin care products
"Initially," the post states, "patients in their twenties and thirties are going to want to use topical skin care products -- such as nourishing creams and serums containing antioxidants, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, etc. -- to help deter the inevitable process of aging." When early signs of aging and sun damage do begin to become apparent, Dr. Miller says milder light and laser-based procedures can typically be administered to help diminish wrinkles, resolve pigmentation issues, and thicken the skin.
Despite the number of treatments and procedures available to help prevent and combat early signs of aging, the blog post concludes by stressing the importance of avoiding too much sun exposure: "Prolonged exposure to the sun's harmful rays causes irreversible damage and promotes the process of skin aging. For this reason, patients should avoid the sun and use sunblock if they want to help keep their skin from aging prematurely."
