Drastic steps aren't always necessary to achieve a more youthful look

Posted:
HOWLAND, Ohio -

We all know there is no such thing as the fountain of youth.  However, that doesn't mean we can't achieve a more youthful look.

"It is really up to the patient how quickly they want it and what they are willing to go through for it," said Humility of Mary Health Partners' plastic surgeon Dr. Adam Cash.

Dr. Cash says one of the easiest ways to look younger is to follow a good skin care routine, which includes a daily cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen.

"The sun wreaks havoc on the skin.  It changes it chemically.  It can cause cancer and pre-cancerous lesions," said Dr. Cash.

Prevention goes a long way when it comes to looking younger.  Dr. Cash says creams and peels can prolong aging, sometimes they can even reverse signs of it.  For fine lines, wrinkles and age spots, Dr. Cash recommends a vitamin A derivative cream, which can be prescribed.

"It has been shown to act as a minor peel to thin the outer layer of the skin and  also to replenish the deeper layers of the skin," said Dr. Cash.

If you're looking for something quicker, Dr. Cash says lasers, fillers and Botox are popular fixes and of course there is always surgery.

"Other procedures like face lifts and eye lid surgery, they are down because they are a little more expensive, but they certainly are the gold standard and they do work," said Dr. Cash.

When buying skin care products, Dr. Cash says look at the ingredients.  Just because a product is more expensive , it doesn't mean it will work any better.  He says products containing vitamin C, E and A have been shown to work over time.
