Skin Care Q&A

What is skin care?

Skin care is a practice rather than a specific treatment. Healthy skin care habits can help improve your skin's appearance, quality, and texture. It can also protect your skin from future damage, like hyperpigmentation, brown spots, and even cancer.

Why is skin care important?

Proper skin care helps protect and preserve aging skin. As you get older, your levels of essential proteins, minerals, and antioxidants decline. The most common examples are collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid loss.


Collagen is a protein that keeps your skin firm and tight, while elastin is the reason it bounces back quickly when you press it. Hyaluronic acid nourishes and hydrates your skin. Around age 30, your body produces less and less of these substances. Your skin becomes drier, thinner, and less vibrant.


Professional skin care treatments from the physicians at Advanced Specialty Associates can help slow the aging process. Some procedures can even spark new collagen and elastin growth. When you visit for a consultation, the team evaluates the tone and texture of your skin to recommend the appropriate products and treatments.

What problems can skin care treatments address?

Quality skin care can help prevent and improve many common skin concerns, such as:


  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Redness
  • Brown spots
  • Dull skin
  • Dry skin
  • Oily skin
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Rough texture
  • Enlarged pores


When you visit Advanced Specialty Associates for dermatologic treatment, you can discuss your skin concerns with the team. Your skin care specialist can target multiple concerns in a treatment regimen, recommending the appropriate products, treatments, and procedures to enhance your skin.

How can I practice proper skin care?

Advanced Specialty Associates can deliver substantial results with physician-backed skin care products and minimally invasive treatments. The team may ask about your current skin care regimen to make personalized recommendations. Once they gather enough information, they can create a list of cleansers, moisturizers, serums, and prescription ointments for your skin.


The practice also offers rejuvenating treatments, like Botox® neuromodulators and dermal fillers, to diminish fine lines and wrinkles and replace lost facial volume.
