We’ve come a long way in our understanding of aging, especially in slowing the visible signs of wrinkling, skin laxity, and hyperpigmentation. Today, anti-aging can begin in your home, thanks to powerful skincare products and natural botanical ingredients. For even further rejuvenation, Dr. Armijo has a range of tools and treatments available to help target your aging concerns and make you feel like your very best self.
Skincare goes beyond the products you use each day, as well. Maintaining a healthy diet, a regular sleep schedule, proper hydration, and stress management are all significant ways to slow the aging process and set your body up for success.
Below, we’ve outlined the necessary steps for a perfect (and foolproof) anti-aging skincare regimen. If you have any questions or want personalized advice, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Our expert team has heard it all when it comes to skincare, and we have years of experience helping our clients build the perfect regimen.
Anti-Aging Skincare at Home
Each morning, begin your routine by using a gentle, hydrating cleanser. It’s essential to avoid anything abrasive, as you want to impart as much moisture as possible to prepare your skin for the day. Foaming cleansers are a perfect fit all year ‘round. However, if you’re looking for an even deeper hydrating option, milk cleansers work wonders. When choosing your cleanser, look for organic botanical ingredients like rose water or green tea.
Next, apply a hyaluronic acid toner. There are countless brands available today, so it’s vital to find a high-quality toner that both smells and feels fantastic to you. Our team loves SkinCeuticals’ Conditioning Toner and L’Occitane’s Immortelle Essential Water. Both are free of alcohol, parabens, sulfates, and phthalates and harness powerful botanicals. L’Occitane is perfect if you want a more floral toner, and SkinCeuticals is an excellent choice for those looking for a cooling, lightly fragrant toner. Either way, you’ll see a considerable improvement in the overall tone and texture of your skin.
After you apply toner, it’s time for serum. Here is where things can get a bit more personalized. Serums come in a range of types, ingredients, and purposes. We highly recommend investing in a vitamin C serum, which provides a rich dose of antioxidants that slow cell degeneration and actively reverse the physical signs of aging.
If your skin isn’t sensitive or more prone to dryness, using a retinol serum three times a week will encourage new cell growth and maintain your youthful glow.
Once your serums have fully absorbed after two to five minutes, it’s time to moisturize. In the morning, choose a light moisturizer with natural ingredients and follow this up with a light, high-SPF sunscreen. If you’re planning to be outdoors throughout the day, it’s crucial to reply sunscreen at least every few hours.
At night, complete your routine with a rich, luxurious night cream. Night creams tend to be like your morning moisturizer, but tend to be heavier, and will work all night to provide hydration. Overnight, your skin will naturally absorb this moisture to maintain a healthy balance. Retinol creams work wonderfully, but all-natural night creams provide stunning results as well.
Anti-Aging With Dr. Armijo
While at-home skincare goes a long way, it can’t compete with the clinically proven results of medical spa-grade treatments. Dr. Armijo offers patients a variety of top-quality procedures to address a variety of skin concerns and to help turn the clock back on visible aging.
For patients looking to focus on reducing wrinkles, improving overall skin tone and texture, Botox, microneedling, and laser skin resurfacing can all address fine lines, along with many other common concerns. Each of these options has unique benefits that best suit specific clients. In many cases, our patients choose to bundle treatments for more holistic skincare.
Botox offers superb wrinkle reduction with results that last for several months; however, it doesn’t directly affect the overall quality of your skin. Both microneedling and laser skin resurfacing, on the other hand, engage the body’s natural healing mechanisms to increase the production of new skin cells, collagen, and elastin. Altogether, over time, you’ll see significant improvements to your skin. Microneedling patients also have the option of pairing their treatment with a PRP facial, which harnesses the platelets in your blood to support beautiful skin for months.
For even further rejuvenation, we can discuss follow-up treatments to maintain and refine your results.
