How Antioxidants Benefit Your Skin

Many of our treatments at Genesis Lifestyle Medical involve the skin, and as such, we care a lot about the products and solutions that offer comfortable, soothing skin care. Whether it’s Botox, Juvederm, laser treatments, or any of our other services that directly impact the skin, we’ll also provide you with products or recommendations to keep the skin healthy.

Many of the best skin care products out there will include what are called antioxidants. These are substances that inhibit oxidization, a process that can dry out and damage skin. Let’s look at how antioxidants benefit your skin, and when you should look for them in your skin care products.

Anti-Inflammatory

Antioxidants are often the first skin care option to calm inflammation, which makes them a perfect adjunct for many of our treatments. They increase circulation and cell metabolism within the skin, which makes inflammation pass more quickly.

Wrinkles

It’s very tough to make wrinkles disappear entirely, but antioxidants can help plump the skin and make it look more youthful. They can help reduce wrinkles and lines, especially antioxidants antioxidants like vitamins C and Resveratrol. These kinds of products are often used around the eyes or other wrinkle problem areas.

Skin Firming

Antioxidants can actually reverse the effects of aging to some degree. They rejuvenate skin appearance and tone the skin by helping to prevent collagen degredation, making them perfect for eye creams and other products meant for this purpose.

We sell many doctor-grade skin care product that are rich in antioxidants here at our clinic.  Want to learn more about these, or any of our medical spa treatments? Speak to the experts at Genesis Lifestyle Medical today.
