Anti-Aging Q & A

North County Dermatology Clinic

What causes the skin to age faster?

Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and it works hard acting as a barrier to toxic substances. Besides the natural effects that gravity has on skin, other factors can influence how fast it ages. Environmental toxins, for one, can introduce harmful substances that affect the structure and strength of the skin’s collagen and elastin. You should also take diet, genetics, and lifestyle choices, like drinking or smoking, into consideration.

What are the symptoms of aging skin?

Most people think of aging skin in terms of wrinkles, but there are other signs that your skin is losing the luster of youth. Common symptoms may include:

  • Dryness
  • Rough or flaky patches
  • Drooping or sagging skin
  • Fine lines
  • A dull, lifeless appearance

As your skin ages, you may notice that it doesn’t bounce back from harsh weather conditions, sunburns, acne spots, and more.

What anti-aging services are offered?

While you can’t completely halt the aging process, it is possible to slow it down with anti-aging dermatology solutions. At North County Dermatology Clinic, Dr. Knight and our board certified Physician Assistants offer a range of treatments to help you achieve glowing skin. Depending on your skin type, age, and goals, he may recommend:

  • Laser resurfacing: helps to trigger collagen production and cell turnover
  • Chemical peels: removes the surface layers of skin to reveal fresh, bright skin underneath
  • Microdermabrasion: improves the look of fine lines; reveals a brighter complexion
  • IPL: intense pulsed light; can target scars, brown spots, or deeper wrinkles
  • Permanent makeup: wakes up the face and eliminates the need for daily eyeliner or other makeup products
  • Glytone products: glycolic acid formulas for optimal skin rejuvenation

What are the benefits of seeing a dermatologist for anti-aging services?

While there are plenty of places to have anti-aging procedures, the safest and most effective choice is to see a qualified dermatologist like Dr. Knight. Under a team of experts, you can be sure you’ll get the best results for your skin type through a customized, patient-specific approach.
