Keeping Your Skin Young and Healthy

Keeping Your Skin Young and Healthy

Skin health and care are popular topics in today’s society as more people try to combat early aging signs and any damage from the sun or harsh products. Scientists, as a result, strive to find the most effective surgical and nonsurgical methods in order to optimize skin care. In the midst of the many treatment and cosmetic options available, you also need tips to keep your skin glowing, radiant, and youthful. Dr. Kayastha and Renee Mantello recommend a simple skin care regime to make the process as easy and low-maintenance as possible.

Skin Care Steps

1. Cleansing

The first step in any skin care regime is cleansing to get rid of physical dirt, debris, and make-up. You will find a lot of cleansers to choose from depending on your skin type and needs. Dr. Kayastha believes that using an appropriate cleanser for your skin type will help not only to remove dirt from the skin but also to rejuvenate it.

2. Exfoliating

Renee says that exfoliation is key. As we age our skin’s cell turnover slows down and becomes sluggish, we need to exfoliate to allow for faster cellular turnover. This will give you a youthful look and radiant glow. In addition to mechanical exfoliation such as ZO Skin Health exfoliating polish,  applying retinols and AHA’s to the skin surface will remove the dead and damaged cells, thus paving the way for a healthier new epidermal layer. You may also receive cosmetic procedures such as dermaplaning and chemical peels.

We offer several different peels depending on how deep you want the skin to be exfoliated. This process will soften fine lines and wrinkles, help with acne scarring and hyper-pigmentation.

3. Toning

Skin toning is an essential step in your skincare regime. Not only does it control the oil that our skin produces, but it restores the ph level of your skin. This is imperative for better product penetration.

Other Treatment Options

Renee further recommends Hydrafacial treatment as the best way to achieve the benefits of all the three skin care steps. Its results are immediate, and they include having an improved skin texture, a radiant tone, and a natural glow. You can have this procedure done at least once a month to ensure you have a flawless skin. At K Plastic Surgery, you will enjoy skin cleansing, exfoliating, and toning to keep your skin refreshed while enhancing your aesthetic appearance.

What to expect?

If you stick to this 3-step skin care regime, you will most likely see results within a few weeks. We may add in some additional product depending on what your skin care concerns and goals are. Your skin will further have an even tone while appearing blemish-free for a flawless look. For the most satisfying results, follow the tips above for a prolonged period.
