There are many things Texas is known for; tacos, BBQ, football, its size and the insufferable heat. Texas reluctantly claims the throne to being one of the hottest states. With that title is also the damaging UV sunlight rays that pummel the region. Get in touch with Uptown Medical Wellness & Anti-Aging Center to ask us about how the Time Machine Procedure can help your skin look healthier and younger!
The Rio Grande Valley does its part in helping Texas secure the heat of thrones. According to Texas Monthly, the RGV’s average temperature – day and night – is equivalent to desert temperatures. Ask any South Texan about the heat and they’ll quickly tell you how trees are heaven-sent and the level of SPF they use for their sunblock is higher than other regions of the country. This all goes into the fight to protect our skin.
Regardless of what condition your skin is in, at Uptown Medical Wellness & Anti-Aging Center, we pride ourselves in providing the best skin care products and procedures possible. If you’re interested in rejuvenating your skin, call us for more information at 956.672.4056.
How Does the Sun Damage My Skin?
If you live in South Texas, whether you like it or not, your skin is bound to be graced by the bright sun. While, the sun’s rays may keep us warm and provide nice tans, the damage UV rays cause to our skin is nothing to be ignored. Exposure to the sun is the main factor behind age spots and wrinkles on our faces. A person who properly takes care of his or her skin can look up to 10 years younger! Skin is also the largest organ in our body; it’s our responsibility to protect it from any form of harm.
Due to the sun’s UV rays, most people assume skin changes are a normal part of aging. With time, the sun’s UV rays cause harm to fibers in our skin called elastin. When the fibers break down, skin begins to stretch, sag and has trouble returning to its normal form. Bruising and tearing also takes longer to heal on skin. All of the damage your skin experiences might not show now, but it will definitely appear later on.
What is the Time Machine Procedure?
Don’t let the word “procedure” scare you. The Time Machine Procedure is actually a nonsurgical treatment that incorporates various techniques to help combat the effects of aging skin. The Uptown Medical Wellness & Anti-Aging Center staff is made up of trained professionals who will have your skin looking and feeling rejuvenated in no time.
Some of the benefits of the Time Machine Procedure include treating skin with sun damage, wrinkles, discoloration and enlarged pores. The process can help patients turn back the hands of time and have you looking 5 to 10 years younger after only a few sessions.
The loss of collagen, sagging skin and even weight loss are just some of the signs of old age. The Time Machine Procedure helps restore skin to its younger-looking self while rebuilding collagen to help give its firmer and youthful appearance back. There is no need for surgery or worrying about scars that a typical surgery would leave. The Time Machine Procedure uses state-of-the-art technologies to combat those age-related issues and offers natural looking results without having to go under the knife. Complete rejuvenations are just a phone call away!
Our Technologies Can Help You Look Younger
One of the newest technologies the Time Machine Procedure offers is micro fractional ablative radiofrequency. We know, it sounds like a mouthful, but it does a great job at rebuilding the collagen in the skin while offering improvements for acne scars, skin rejuvenation, tightening skin and stretchmarks. Uptown Medical Wellness & Anti-Aging Center has effective skin care products to aid in maximizing results in conjunction with the treatments of the Time Machine Procedure.
According to research conducted by The Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery, micro plasma technology helps with discrete lesions and entire regions of the body. One of the features used is micro plasma technology, which basically provides positive heating under the skin. Little electrodes do a magnificent job of motivating the skin to react naturally and produce new collagen, which results in tightening of the skin and looking younger!
The time it takes to see results is minimal and the procedure is quick. For most patients, the area treated is usually a little tender, slightly swollen and appears similar to mild sunburn. Ultimately, after a couple of days, patients report going back to their normal self with one exception – they look and feel younger!
Tips to Remember
As with all procedures involving the body, we recommend some of the following tips for healthy summer skin:
- Apply sunscreen at least 15 minutes before heading outside. While most lotions start off with a 15 SPF level, we recommend starting with 30 SPF and reapply as needed. Remember, UV rays are most damaging during the summer, especially in South Texas.
- If swimming is on the agenda, keep in mind that there are water-resistant SPFs on the market. Most waterproof SPF lotions don’t need constant reapplication.
- The lighter the skin, the higher the SPF. Again, we recommend starting at 30 SPF, and everyone should use sunscreen.
- If plans call for spending time outside, such as taking a walk, running or participating in some kind of outdoor activity, don’t forget your sunscreen. Most of us live a busy lifestyle and if something is out of mind, then it’ll be out of sight. Place your SPF lotion where you’ll notice and not forget it.
- The sun’s UV rays have the ability to reflect off of water. Keep that in mind when at the beach or pool.
