In the quest to look and feel our best, we often wind up solely focusing on correcting the signs of aging. What about preventing the signs of aging before they begin? Protecting your skin from the sun, keeping it healthy, and preventing the signs of aging is as important (if not more) as correction. At Dr. J.J. Wendel Plastic Surgery, prevention is key! Our plastic surgery practice has a variety of skincare products and treatments that both prevent and correct skin imperfections. 

The Best Defense is Offense

Sunscreen, sunscreen, and more sunscreen! We can’t discuss preventing the signs of aging without mentioning the best form of protection against it. Sunscreen is an absolute necessity in any skincare routine, and there’s no better time to incorporate this into your regimen than Skin Cancer Awareness month. Not only does sunscreen prevent wrinkles, fine lines, and sun spots, it also protects our skin from harmful UV rays that cause sunburns and skin cancer. 

Not sure which SPF to use? Our plastic surgery practice has several different medical-grade sunscreens for you to choose from, including EltaMD, SkinMedica, and more. Whether you want a tinted sunscreen or even a mattifying powder SPF, we have a sunscreen that can easily fit into your existing routine. Stop by our office today to grab your SPF!   

Skin Protecting Pair

Already have sun damage? Try our Dr. Wendel Koji Pads to brighten your complexion and fade hyperpigmentation. These pads contain kojic acid, a powerful compound that both inhibits and prevents the formation of tyrosine in your skin. Tyrosine is responsible for melanin production, which can exacerbate existing dark spots and cause new dark marks to form. With regular use, our Koji pads easily erase sun spots and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. 

Our Dr. Wendel Koji Pads pair perfectly with SkinMedica’s Lytera® 2.0 Pigment Correcting Serum. This serum is formulated to address even the most stubborn skin discoloration and is a great option for people of all skin types hoping to flaunt an even, flawless complexion. Contact our office today to purchase any of our skincare products and start protecting your skin!  

Lighten Skin Imperfections with Lasers 

Beyond skincare products to prevent and correct damage caused by the sun, there are numerous laser treatments that can erase skin imperfections. Using the most advanced laser technology for skin rejuvenation and skin resurfacing, we can treat a multitude of skin concerns and give you a luminous complexion. Our Halo Laser and BroadBand Light (BBL) laser treatments penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin to improve skin texture, remove spots, stimulate collagen production, erase fine lines and wrinkles, and enhance the overall quality of your skin. These treatments are an ideal option if you’d like to address multiple skin problems at once. If you’re primarily concerned with correcting fine lines and wrinkles, we also offer laser skin resurfacing to smooth any signs of aging. 

Laser treatments are a powerful way to reverse sun damage and give your skin the reset it needs. By speaking with one of our team members, we’ll be able to better understand your skin concerns and determine if you’re a candidate for these laser treatments.
