Tsawwassen, BC cosmetic dentist Dr. Jan Roberts is an expert when it comes to facial anatomy. Her experience in aesthetic dentistry, anti-aging and skin rejuvenation has taught her a lot over the years. As a leader in the cosmetic and anti-aging industry, she’s no stranger to understanding what works — or doesn’t work — for herself and her patients. Here are the top five products/services that she simply just can’t live without!
Microneedling for Anti-Aging
Microneedling allows you to stimulate your skin’s optimum health. The process triggers new collagen and elastin production to make the surface appear smoother and add plumpness, reducing the appearance of:
- Fine lines
- UV damage/dark spots
While it might sound invasive, needling doesn’t damage any of the other important skin cells. This very safe procedure is fairly inexpensive when compared to other types of dermal treatments. The best part? Needling makes it easier for your skin to absorb topically applied nutrients after the treatment, so that those other techniques can be more effective.
Anti-Aging Treatment: Cosmetic Needling
This inexpensive needling treatment can be completed at home and is an effective part of your daily skin care routine. Like dermal needling, cosmetic needling is effective in managing a variety of skin imperfections and makes it easier for your skin to absorb cosmeceuticals. The best part? No appointments necessary! Call our clinic today to learn about our favourite take-home dermal needling device!
Anti-Aging Treatment: Neuromodulators (aka “Botox”, “Dysport”)
If your biggest concerns tend to be prominent forehead lines, crow’s feet, smile lines, or other facial wrinkles, then cosmetic injectables and fillers are a nearly pain free fix. Although not permanent, these neuromodulators require no downtime between treatments, so you can keep on going no matter what your busy lifestyle has in store. With minimal to no side effects, you practically can’t go wrong.
A Great Anti-Aging Home Skin Care Routine
The day-in and day-out routine of your anti-aging skincare habits has one of the biggest impacts on the appearance of your face. You can’t afford to skip any steps or sleep in your makeup. Speak to us about Rodan & Fields – a cosmeceutical skincare line we are seeing great results with! There are four lines that can help you establish a proper cleansing and moisturizing routine, so that your skin can stay properly hydrated. This provides the essential keys needed for optimum cell function. Use sun protection at all times, even in colder weather months. You may need to slightly alter your habits between seasons, when the temperatures shift from hot (and more humid) to colder (and dry.)
Exercise and a Balanced Diet
As with every other organ in our bodies, our skin is impacted by what we eat. A balanced diet rich with fresh vegetables, fiber, and vitamins will provide our body with the right nutrients necessary to build healthy skin and eliminate waste products. Exercise is just as important to stimulate blood flow and oxygenation to tissues like the skin.
While not everyone needs anti-aging treatments such as needling or Botox, we all need to take great care of our skin. Call our Tsawwassen, BC cosmetic dentist today at 604-943-3343 or book online to schedule a private consultation and to learn more.
