In Palm Harbor, FL patients may choose Moraitis Plastic Surgery for skin care products and services; we hope to make this information available on our website soon. Until then, read on for different ways to treat your skin in and out of the office.

 

  1.     Exfoliating

Skin exfoliation is the process of removing older dead skin cells on the skin’s outermost surface, and has been a useful treatment to help support and maintain healthy skin.  Exfoliation can be achieved through mechanical (microdermabrasion) or chemical means (facial peels).

Exfoliating can help remove dead skin cells, dirt, and other unwanted elements from the skin; revealing a brighter skin appearance.

  1.     Moisturizing

For dryer complexions, moisturizing can create a more desirable skin appearance. A variety of products can hydrate the skin, creating a shinier or brighter appearance. Moisturized skin may also prevent future formation of wrinkles. In Palm Harbor, cosmetic patients can choose a variety of products to moisturize their skin.

  1.     Protecting

The sun, although an important source of vitamin D, can dry and damage skin. To avoid the formation of sunspots, wrinkles, or other skin concerns, skin treatment should include sun protection. Applying products with SPF can prevent additional damage to the skin.

  1.     Cleansing

Cleansing the skin, like exfoliating, helps remove dirt and dead skin cells. Patients can cleanse their skin to limit the appearance of acne and other skin surface concerns. Cleansing products, or treatments, may also temporarily improve skin texture and brightness.

  1.     Other Cosmetic Options

At the office, we also offer a variety of other treatment options. Cosmetic alternatives include lasers, dermabrasion, and injections. Lasers may heat the skin to encourage collagen growth and skin tightening; dermabrasion options also may increase collagen production. After these treatments, patients may achieve their desired skin appearance.

The combination of these treatments, or singular treatments, may offer patients the skin they desire. For more information about skin care options in Palm Harbor, patients can visit our office or call (727) 219-9168 for a consultation.
