You Ask~ Dr. Germain Answers!

We love getting questions from our patients – being proactive with your skin health and skin care is essential for graceful aging and the longevity of your skin. Post a question on any of our social media outlets and yours may be featured on our blog! 
“Im 39. I have some lines and wrinkles. I do have large pores that I hate and discoloration from child birth and sun. What would be the best treatment for younger looking skin again?” 
The most important thing you can do to improve your skin is get on a great skin care regimen that includes a physical block sunscreen and a retinol or retinoid. If you did this alone you would see good improvement over the next few months. 
You can speed up the improvement if you do other treatments like a resurfacing laser (there are several depending upon how aggressive you want to be) and a good IPL (depending on your skin type). There are also some superficial peels you can do. It’s always better to do a little bit of a lot than a lot of one thing so combining modalities gives the best results.
