Anti-aging over the counter| Is it possible?Posted on June 5, 2017
Trying to find an antiaging remedy that is virtually free is difficult. But, it doesnt stop many people from trying. There are often tips and remedies given to consumers that claim to fight the signs of aging as effectively as cosmetic surgery. According to a recent online womens magazine skin care that is associated with antiaging should be performed at night prior to bedtime. According to the article in the morning the primary goal is to protect skin. In the evening its all about fighting the effects of aging. Neil Sadick, Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Weill Cornell Medical College says that many antiaging products work best at night when patients are sleeping. According to Sadick, cell turnover, when older skin cells shed off and leave skin glowing, increases at night, and certain ingredients take advantage of this biological process. According to the article consumers should use products with Retinoic Acid or Retinol to increase collagen production which is known to reduce the appearance of wrinkles fine lines and discoloration Alpha Hydroxy Acids and vitamin C are critical ingredients for antiaging products and are recommended to be used for home treatments. Red or green tea also benefit the skin as well as peptides, growth factors, and jojoba oil. These are known to provide protection from the inevitable signs of aging. Dr. Kim reminds patients that while over-the-counter products help to maintain the skin, patients should be open to more permanent options like facelift, blepharoplasty, or Botox once the signs of aging have become noticeably apparent. Dr. Kim encourages patients who are seeking facial rejuvenation to contact the office and schedule a consultation.
