Why Skin Care Matters

Visiting qualified professionals to assess and treat your skin is no different than visiting a doctor for a checkup. Much of what you do to your skin now is going to have an impact on the health and appearance of your epidermis in later years. If you never pay any attention to skin irritations or ailments, you could be laying the foundation for some annoying issues later. For example, acne can often seem like a small problem. However, acne that persists or is painful could be indications of a deeper issue.

If you fail to have your skin assessed by a professional, it could lead to acne that causes scars that last for the rest of your life. The best way to avoid this scenario is to book a consultation with one of our qualified skincare experts in Ahwatukee. When someone with experience in the industry takes a look at your current skin ailments, they can offer you exceptional insight into what treatments and solutions will offer you the peace and contentment you’re after.

Learn How To Establish a Care Routine

Though personal care products often break skin types into categories like dry, oily, and combination, this is an oversimplification in many ways. The exact composition of a person’s epidermis will be unique and based on factors like genetics, environment, stress, and age. If you make assumptions when you buy products to treat skin conditions, it can lead to the problem worsening.

With our aesthetic dermatology, you can find solutions from aesthetic services such as Dysport and Botox to chemical peels and microneedling to injectable fillers, we provide first-class care for all of your dermatology needs.

When you book a consultation at Affiliated Dermatology, on the other hand, the qualified professional who assists you will be able to assess your skin and offer you information on how to establish a consistent and efficient care regimen or solutions for anti-aging and other appearance-related needs.

Take Preventive Steps

In fact, you don’t need to have a specific problem to book an appointment. Often, it is more useful to schedule a visit simply to have an expert look at your current skin status. This can offer you invaluable insight on what changes you should make to your lifestyle to produce better results with your skin. In most cases, a person doesn’t visit a dermatologist until he or she notices discoloration, dryness, blemishes, or other impurities. However, this usually means that an issue has already taken root.

To find the most practical solution, you will find that preventative steps are far more beneficial in the long run. A dermatologist can take a look at the unique composition of your epidermis and tell you exactly what treatments you need to focus on to keep your skin in the shape that you would prefer. Plus, setting up an appointment with a professional at Affiliated Dermatology can also make it easier for you to spot any issues too small for the average person to have noticed on their own.

Why are consistent appointments with dermatologists even more important for people living in Arizona? Arizona is close to the sun (high altitude), close to the equator (low latitude), and has a warm climate all year. High altitude and low latitude mean less atmospheric protection from damaging sun rays (UV radiation). Plus, a warmer climate means more time spent outside year-round with less clothing (protecting your skin. All these factors have the potential to put Arizona residents at higher risk of skin cancer

 

Establish the Healthiest Routine

Though the treatments available are meant to target specific ailments and lay the foundation for a healthier future for your epidermis, you are also responsible for a good chunk of the work. How you go about your daily routine can influence the health and appearance of your skin. For example, it is important to drink at least eight glasses of water a day for your body to be properly hydrated. If you’re falling short on this requirement, you are likely going to start seeing the effects on the dryness or flakiness of your skin.

If you feel as if you don’t know the first thing about creating a daily flow that benefits your skin, this is another area where care experts can help. From medical treatments to topical product recommendations to information on how to best care for your epidermis at home, setting up a consultation with an expert is the best way to gain perspective on what choices are right for your goals. Healthy skin does not happen immediately, so you need to put in the effort to ensure the dedicated work of your dermatologist pays off.

How Often Should You Get a Full Body Skin Exam in Arizona?

  • Blonde or red hair
  • Light eye color
  • Skin that freckles or sunburn easily
