Once you’re in your 30s, you may notice the development of fine lines around your eyes and mouth. While they are a natural part of aging, these lines can make you look older than you are and may even lower your self-esteem. David Bushore, MD, at Balcones Dermatology and Aesthetics, understands and can help you prevent and treat fine lines with numerous treatments and professional skin care products. Contact his office in Austin, Texas, today to learn more about what procedures are available. Call to book your appointment or schedule online.
Fine lines are caused by the breakdown of collagen and elastin. This occurs naturally as you age and can happen prematurely when you’re exposed to UV rays from the sun.
Often, these lines first appear around the eyes and the corners of your mouth and can spread to other areas of your face as you age.
With proper skin care and prevention, you can reduce the appearance of fine lines and slow their development. Dr. Bushore often recommends a proper hydrating skin care regimen.
Using a system that nourishes and moisturizes your skin, you can keep fine lines at a minimum. At Balcones Dermatology and Aesthetics, Skin Type SolutionsⓇ systems are available for purchase. With specialized regimens for 16 different skin types and tones, Dr. Bushore can help find the right one for you.
Beyond proper skin care, he also recommends quitting smoking and using a daily sunscreen. UV light from the sun damages your skin, causing fine lines that can quickly turn into wrinkles if left untreated. By wearing a sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30, you protect your skin and reduce the development of wrinkles.
If you spend a lot of time outside, Dr. Bushore may also recommend wearing a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses, which can stop you from squinting, as the repetitive movement increases your risk of fine lines around the eyes.
Beyond preventive measures, Dr. Bushore and his team at Balcones Dermatology and Aesthetics offer cosmetic treatments for fine lines. These include the Skin Type Solutions systems, as well as innovative techniques and procedures. He offers:
CuteraⓇ laser treatments
Depending on your specific needs and goals, Dr. Bushore develops a comprehensive treatment plan to address your issues. He may use any one of these techniques or a combination to get the results you desire.
