Your Best Bet at Staying Young: Skin Care!

Your Best Bet at Staying Young: Skin Care!

Have you ever thought about taking your birthday suit in to the cleaners? The sun can make a mess of our skin, not to mention the wrinkles caused by time. If neglect begins to play a factor then we’re in real trouble. Plastic surgeons like Dr. Kevin Smith of Charlotte encourage a level of care for the skin that can soften the blow of sun damage and the aging process, and it all starts with a good skin care regimen.

The First Line

Keeping the skin healthy with quality skin care wins two battles: it fights the aging process and improves our first impression.

“If a patient is interested in improving their appearance, the first thing that they should do is look to good skin care,” says Dr. Smith.

Smith is convinced that skin quality plays a powerful role in the impressions we make on others. Having healthy skin can make a world of difference and it is an obvious thing to spot. Plastic surgery patients of Dr. Smith in Charlotte, North Carolina are introduced to skin care as a means to enhance their results:

“Patients protect their investment with skin care.”

Protecting The Investment

Plastic surgery is one way to make changes to our appearance, and skin care acts as a complement to any surgical procedure. A good plastic surgeon will be able to recommend a quality skin care regimen or, at the very least, put you in contact with an esthetician. Skin care specialists are critical to maintaining a long-term relationship with your skin.

“Skin care is dynamic, it is evolving,” says Smith. “What you start on today may not be what you’re on in a year, or two years. As you correct skin damage, once it’s corrected, you just have to maintain that.”

Good Skin Health Starts with a Specialist

Just as your physician plays a key role in helping you maintain good overall health, he or she plays an important role in helping you maintain healthy skin.

For optimal results, consult your physician to:

  • Help determine which treatment regimen is best for you based on your skin condition, previous procedures and lifestyle
  • Analyze your skin care routine and help you understand what’s working
  • Help determine what you can do to further enhance the health-and beauty-of your skin

The Importance of Care

Taking care of the skin requires a mindful effort – one that is sure to bring notice. A good first step towards caring for your skin is to seek a specialist; it pays to do things the right way. A specialist is going to be equipped with the knowledge necessary to tailor the right skin care regimen for you.

Healthy and beautiful skin is a game changer. When you look better, you feel better. Active skin care is a show of commitment towards self-improvement that Dr. Smith has even taken upon himself. He began his regimen after nearly sixty years of wear and tear, and his commitment to care hopes to inspire such a commitment in his patients.
