Wrinkles and fine lines are formed when collagen and elastin fibers underneath the skin begin to deteriorate and fade away. Repeated sun exposure, smoking, poor eating habits, and high blood sugar are all environmental factors that will encourage oxidative stress and skin inflammation that lead to accelerated skin aging. Over time, this skin aging and collagen damage creates folds, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
Beautiful skin begins with the fuel we choose to put into our body. Dr DeJuliis knows that her clients who stick to a diet packed with antioxidants and healthy fats typically present with more youthful-looking skin. Hormonal balance is also important for protecting new collagen fibers and skin hydration.
Wrinkles can be softened and fine lines eliminated in the hands of a physician who is very skilled at using skin resurfacing techniques, lasers, botulism toxins, and appropriate fillers.
Dr DeJuliis can recommend an appropriate treatment depending on skin condition, age, lifestyle and expectations. She has had great success with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), Fractional Laser, YAG Laser, microneedling with PRP and Venus Legacy, all of which stimulate collagen production to produce younger-looking skin.
