Car Exhaust And Your Skin

Some of the most popular treatments performed at the Cosmetic Surgery of Indianapolis practice have to do with making our patients look younger. As aging occurs, the face loses its fullness, causing lines and wrinkles to appear, not to mention a more hollowed appearance. In order to combat these issues we provide Botox, Restylane, and fat injections. Fat injections in particular are a two for one procedure since the fat being used is liposuctioned from other parts of your body. Each treatment will give you varying results of youthfulness in your face.

But what if aging isn’t as natural as we thought?

To be fair, aging is a natural part of life. But there are some factors that could be causing your skin to age faster than usual. Recent studies have announced that the area you reside in could be hindering your skin. It seems that after a twenty year study, it’s been found that people living in heavily industrialized areas age faster than people living in rural areas due to all the airborne particles from car exhaust. Therefore, residing near a highway may be great for your commute to work, but terrible for your skin.

But problems from traffic-related airborne particles are more than just skin deep. It has previously been linked to lower lung function, cognitive failure in the elderly, and type two diabetes. It may even have a hand in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s, which is being studied now.

Along with solar ultraviolet rays and tobacco smoke, traffic-related airborne particles are now the third most harmful potentially modifiable major factor that causes early skin aging. However, though we can usually avoid excessive amounts of sun, and stay away from people smoking, we can’t always choose where we live. If this is the case, the Cosmetic Surgery of Indianapolis is more than happy to keep your skin looking beautiful and young.

To your health and beauty,

Dr. Michelle Jones Singer
