Q A For Your Skinformation. On several occasions recently, people have mistakenly thought that I’m older than my sister, even though I’m actually 5 years younger than she is. It bothers me more than I like to admit, and it’s started me thinking about doing something to look younger. Because we still feel vibrant and young, many of us are caught off guard when we realize that our outward appearance isn’t keeping up with our youthful inner self. There are many treatments available to help you look and feel your best. At Skin Spectrum, each patient has a thorough consultation to establish a rejuvenation plan, which is customized to your skin needs, personal goals, lifestyle, and budget. We start with an excellent skincare program and may add lasers, chemical peels, injectables, or even surgery. Q A I hate the skin on my chest, which looks crepey, discolored and unattractive. What is the best way to get rid of these little wrinkles? The décolleté is an area that tends to show accelerated signs of aging. It is very thin, delicate skin which is often exposed to the damaging rays of the sun on a daily basis, so always remember to apply your sunscreen all the way down to your neck and chest. For maximum improvement, we may recommend applying a topical fi rming product daily, Sculptra injections to stimulate collagen, and/or Botox combined with treatments such as the new ResurFX laser to help smooth the skin with almost no visible healing.
