b2ap3_thumbnail_Untitled-design-9.jpgIf you are one of the approximately 30 percent of American women or 14 percent of American men who regularly wear sunscreen when going outdoors, you should be proud of yourself for doing your part to prevent the damaging effects of the sun’s UV rays on your skin. But a recent study has revealed that if you’re drinking even one glass of alcohol per day, you could be increasing your risk of developing a form of skin cancer known as basal cell carcinoma (BCC) by 7 percent and your risk of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) by 11 percent!

b2ap3_thumbnail_Untitled-design-8.jpgA recent study of 2,000 British women sponsored by United Kingdom-based Sanex Zero% found that British women experience 72 "bad skin days" per year. More alarming, those 72 days a year (or six days a month) are affecting the "mental well-being" of 61 percent of respondents. Though the causes of bad skin days vary - respondents cited everything from acne breakouts to dryness - most troubling are the effects those bad days have on the lives of the respondents.

That’s because, according to the survey, a full 25 percent of respondents have canceled dates over bad skin, and one-fifth have canceled plans with friends.

But unfortunately, sometimes in the pursuit of younger skin, we end up making skincare mistakes that make us look older than we are. If you are looking for ways to recapture that youthful glow, check your diet and your routine for some of these common skin-aging mistakes!

Although the sun is a great source of vitamin D, our facial skin is sensitive to repeated bare exposure.   Most people are aware that sun damage can cause facial lines.   Such facial lines around the eyes might lead you to consider an eyelid lift or skin treatments to restore a youthful and healthy look.

 

For non-invasive procedures that treat conditions caused or made worse by sun damage, we offer a variety of chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing procedures restore skin to a more vibrant appearance.  The goal of both chemical peels and CO2 laser resurfacing is to have the skin regenerate with an even surface and pigmentation that can be caused by sun damage. These treatments target dyschromia (skin color variations), lines, wrinkles, scars, dermal lesions (deeper skin abnormalities) and stimulate long-term collagen remodeling.

 

Sun exposure can also make crow’s feet more noticeable.  Crows feet, or lines around the eyes often lead to conversations about eyelid lifts.   For an eyelid lift, I rejuvenate puffy, sagging or tired-looking eyes by removing excess skin, muscle and fat. This can be performed on both the upper and lower eyelids. My results are typically so natural that your friends and family don’t notice that you have had surgery. Instead, it’s common for my patients to be told how rested they look. Many patients choose to combine eyelid lifts with chemical peels and laser treatments to achieve an all around refreshed look. 

 

An eyelid lift is a popular Contours and Curves procedure because it can easily take years off of your facial appearance. To schedule a facial rejuvenation consultation or learn more, please contact Dr. Ryan Mitchell today. 

Hydrafirm by Dr Zein Obagi is a fabulous and efficacious product. This is one product from his new skin care line that offers real results. Hydrafirm is for use around the eyes. I have been personally using Hydrafirm for the past 2 months and I really like the results. It does exactly what it says. It hydrates and firms the skin around the eyes. I have been a user of Botox for my "crow's feet" area for at least 8 years. The Hydrafirm further improves upon the Botox result. While Botox will improve much of the lines around the eyes, Hydrafirm will improve the smaller fine lines and in addition make the periorbital (around the eye) skin more firm. It works quickly as well. Hydrafirm is a break through multi-function formula that quickly smooths the skin's appearance of puffiness while optical diffusers soften the appearance of dark circles. Use Hydrafirm morning and night. One tube will last 3-4 months. The cost is $140. "Like" Contours and Curves/ Mitchell Plastic Surgery for a 10% discount. ZO Skin Health is only available through Physicians offices. The whole line of ZO Skin Health is excellent! Call or schedule an appointment for additional information.
