Skin care refers to the products, regimens, treatments, and services dedicated to preserving or improving the health of your skin. Certain skin care treatments and services also aim for a strictly cosmetic result, improving the tone, texture, or elasticity of your skin.
For many people, much of their skin care routine takes place at home. You probably have several products that you use daily or weekly to cleanse, moisturize, or nourish your skin. While a home skin care routine is important for maintaining your skin’s health and minimizing early signs of aging, you can also receive skin care services and tips from a physician like Dr. Duong.
As an internal medicine physician, Dr. Duong has extensive knowledge and experience treating many parts of the body, including the skin. Your skin serves to protect the rest of your body from harmful invaders and pathogens like bacteria, viruses, and dirt. Keeping it healthy is essential for it to perform its function effectively.
Dr. Duong offers many treatments and services dedicated to making your skin look its best and remain healthy. If you’re interested in improving your skin, Dr. Duong can guide you to a treatment that meets your goals. He might recommend:
Botulinum toxin is the main ingredient in Xeomin®, an injectable drug that interferes with the signaling between your nerves and muscles. By injecting it into certain facial muscles, you can alleviate some of the fine lines that make your older age apparent. The results last for about four months.
Injectable dermal fillers like Belotero Balance® can make up for fat loss or a lack of volume in certain areas of your face. Dermal fillers can make your lips or cheeks plumper, correct contour irregularities, or reduce the appearance of large wrinkles. The results last for about six months.
Skin tags are small benign growths that tend to grow in areas where your skin folds over itself, like your eyelids or armpits. Dr. Duong removes them with minor surgery in his office.
Facials are customizable skin care treatments that give your skin the nutrients it needs the most. A typical facial includes cleansing, extractions, exfoliation, a massage, and a facial mask.
The best way to keep your skin looking great after a skin care treatment is to follow any specific instructions that Dr. Duong gives you regarding your treatment’s preparation and aftercare. In general, you should:
Other suggestions depend on the specific type of treatment you receive.
