You want to have healthy and radiant skin. However, some of your choices may be getting in the way. Here are three bad habits that Dr. Shaun Patel wants you to break for a better complexion.
1. DIY Microneedling
It can be tempting to take your skin treatments into your own hands. However, some of them are better left to the professionals. Microneedling, which can cause numerous problems when performed without the proper training and tools, is certainly one of those treatments.
The wrong technique can be painful and create microscopic tears in the skin. Serious issues such as infection, scarring, uneven texture, and hyperpigmentation have also been reported.
Meanwhile, in-office microneedling devices such as SkinPen® and Genius RF are low risk. These treatments improve skin texture, boost radiance, and increase collagen production.
2. Using The Wrong Skin Care Products
Not all skin care products are created equal. The formulas at the drugstore won’t bring out the full potential in your skin. That’s because medical-grade skin care is in a whole other league.
Professional skin care products are backed by scientific research and clinically proven. And they often contain powerful ingredients that you won’t find on the shelf. Dr. Shaun Patel loves the products from ZO Skin Health, SkinBetter Science and EltaMD. He will gladly help you build your perfect routine.
3. Neglecting Your Neck And Chest
It’s all too easy to forget about your neck and chest. When was the last time you remembered to apply sunscreen below your chin or smooth your skincare products down to your decolletage? One day, you may look in the mirror and find that these areas look much older than your face.
Fortunately, there are still plenty of opportunities to show your neck and chest the care they deserve. Our clinic offers treatments for sun damage, vertical bands, wrinkles, and more!
