Skin Aging

treatment for skin aging from Illinois Dermatologist Skin aging often occurs due to a variety of environmental factors. The skin’s aging process relies on several factors, such as heredity, diet, stress, lifestyle choices like smoking, and of course, gravity. However, the most common cause of skin damage today is sun or tanning bed exposure. If you are concerned with your skin aging, a dermatologist can help to reverse the evidence of damage and enhance your skin’s appearance. Contact Dermatology Specialists of Illinois to determine which treatment option is best for you and your skin’s needs.

The Most Common Signs of Skin Aging

  • Age Spots – Age spots are dark spots that will develop on the face and body, usually due to sun exposure. Often very easy to treat for trained dermatology specialists.
  • Wrinkles – Wrinkles form when the skin loses its flexibility, often occurring during times of prolonged sun exposure, or when a person is a smoker. New technologies help reverse these changes.
  • Sun Damage – Sun damage not only causes wrinkles, but it is also the most common cause of blotches. They make the skin look tired and sickly. Modern technology can make a big difference. Many treatments are relatively painless
  • Blemishes – Blemishes are minor skin imperfections, which are often caused by things such as acne, scars, birthmarks, age spots, or uneven skin tones. They make the skin look uneven and old.
Many patients are very unhappy with the look of skin aging and long for new technologies to make them more beautiful. They try to cover the signs of skin aging with cover sticks, concealers, and heavy makeup. This makeup “cakes” on their faces and makes them look worse than ever. We, at Dermatology Specialist of Illinois are experts in treatments for skin aging and can help these patients.
