Treating Fine Lines and Wrinkles While In Quarantine
While we are all used to having Botox to the rescue when it comes to treating our fine lines and wrinkles, during our quarantine Botox will not be there to help treat those areas. So, Dr. Nazarian wants to share her top secrets to anti-aging skin care at home.
What Causes Fine Lines and Wrinkles?
The breakdown of collagen and elastin can cause fine lines and wrinkles to appear. You can think of collagen and elastin as the support structure for the skin. These two factors are what keep our skin looking firm, smooth and youthful.
Age causes the fibers to break down and this is when the skin begins to lose elasticity. This will result in wrinkles and fine lines. In addition, exposure to the sun can also cause wrinkles, fine lines, and rough patches.
What Causes Fine Lines and Wrinkles?
- Sun exposure
- Repeated facial expressions
- Pollutants and smoking
How Do You Treat Fine Lines and Wrinkles?
There are tons of ways you can treat fine lines and wrinkles, but in quarantine, you are limited to products. Take it from a pro like Dr. Nazarian, who knows all the tips to deter the aging process. Here are just some of the products she recommends using during your time at home to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
LightStim for Wrinkles is a fantastic way to stimulate collagen while finding your zen. This innovative anti-wrinkle kit uses LED lighting and multi-wave technology.
It is to be used along with your custom medical-grade skincare regimen. It is designed to help improve skin by soothing, clarifying and firming. With the use of therapeutic lights, collagen is stimulated and elastin production is enhanced.
The LightStim has been approved by the FDA and designed to work with specific Skin Spot products to help decrease fine lines and wrinkles. It is a handheld device and easy to use in the comfort of your home. Your kit comes with the LightStim, Beauty bag and PhotoSerum.
Retinol is no stranger to the beauty industry. This product is designed to help a variety of skin ailments, including acne, fine lines, wrinkles and much more. It was first approved for use on acne in the 1970s and has steadily gained traction in the beauty industry.
Retinol helps encourage cell turnover and is a safe peel to use at home. Start at a few nights per week and work your way up. Not only will it help unclog pores and defend against blemishes, but it also helps all of your other skincare products to work more efficiently.
While there are many different retinol products on the market, not all of them are created equally. The Revision Skincare Retinol serum contains five very powerful antioxidants, including a blend of botanical extracts that will help enhance the effectiveness of retinol. 100% of clinical study participants showed an improvement in the appearance of fine lines with the use of Revision Skincare - Retinol Complete 0.5
