“So, yes, it can be cured in the right hands, at the right dose, and with the right change in your skincare routine.”
3. What can you do for your skin health before you hit 40?
Whether you’re reaching your 40s or already there, you might be wondering what you can do for your skin and how to keep it in the best shape possible.
According to our friend Dr. Shammi, there are many different things you can do.
“I would look into a combination of BBL, which uses pulses of light energy, with a deeper laser like the 1064. When [used] in the right setting and in the right mode, it can actually anti-age your skin on a cellular level.”
“Research has shown it anti-ages your skin cells – why wouldn’t we want it?”
“The other thing I love is the combination of growth factor infusion with non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid.”
Cool! It seems confusing. What does all this mean?
“It’s like putting moisturizer or hyaluronic acid on your skin – but it’s actually injected into your face.”
Meaning? It delivers hydration deep under the skin for plumper, smoother and brighter skin.
Dr. Shammi said she also loves ultrasound energy treatments like Ultraformer to help fight early signs of aging like sagging and “jowls.”
“There are a lot of things you can do,” she adds. “And skincare, start early. Use vitamin B3 serum, get vitamin C, retinol. You want to start early with rejuvenating your skin.”
4. Is Halo good for acne scars?
