Wrinkle Treatment Columbus: The POWER Players
Combat Cosmetic Counter Claptrap
You need some serious stuff to really make a difference in your skin.
Enter the power players:
- Alpha Hydrox
The Enemy of Sunspots
Hydroquinone has the ability to fade sunspots and comes in varying strengths.
Clinton said she’s able to create a custom topical as well.
“If you just have one spot, than I can formulate a compound product,” she said.
She said when used in conjunction with Retin-A the two ingredients can really work synergistically together.
Get Those Fine Lines in Line
Age causes skin to get wavy underneath the surface. Retin-A can get beneath the surface and straighten the waves out.
“That way it causes your skin to come off in a more orderly fashion and then you have fewer wrinkles and the surface of your skin looks nicer,” Clinton said.
The Softer Side of Power
For those who can’t tolerate Retin-A, alpha hydroxy acid or AHA can provide a gentler and more surface wrinkle treatment of the skin.
You can also pair AHA and Retin-A for a dynamic duo of wrinkle fighting.
Don’t Forget Your Vitamins
Antioxidants orally can help your skin but they can also help when applied topically.
Clinton said, “These can actually stop the damage to the skin the sun can do to the surface of your skin.
“The sun can’t get in and make the free radicals which causes your skin to age.”
It’s Just Not the Same
Remember, medical-grade products with these ingredients are going to be stronger than what you’d get at the drug or department store. And, they work.
“These (ingredients) are the ones that really make the biggest impact on your skin,” Clinton said.
If you’re not sure which of these is right for you or if a procedure might be in order, schedule a consultation.
