EXPERT Q&A

Q: What steps can I take early on to prevent aging?

What our experts say:

I think if you have deep furrow s between your eyebrows or a strong smile, the number one thing to do is Botox to keep from pulling your brow down.  Then you won’t need a browlift later on.  I do much fewer of them today. Botox is keeping patients from having their brows descend as aggressively and it keeps the upper lids from looking heavy. You can treat the muscles around the eyes so you won’t have crow’s feet that can close your eyes. If not treated early, they will etch permanent lines in your skin. You also need a good medical skin care system and a good sunscreen to prevent damage.  If you are concerned with your skin, or if you have any problems with your skin, you have to go to an SPF 25 or 30 physical block with more titanium and micronized zinc. They are more reflective and good for sensitive skin (as opposed to chemical sunscreens). Use topical chemicals to stimulate your skin, and have deep cleansing treatments in your doctor’s office like glycolic, lactic or salicylic acids combined with something else. But, if I had to pick one cosmetic to use, it would be sunscreen. Use it every day and reapply it if you are going to be out for a while.
