"Meanwhile, New York-based dermatologist Dr. Macrene Alexiades-Armenakas will soon introduce a treatment called Profound. She calls it an “injectable laser,” which means that she sends the laser to a deeper part of the dermis using fine needles. “We deliver the energy directly where it needs to do its work to maximize wrinkle reduction and skin tightening,” she explained. Dr. Alexiades-Armenakas has steadfast views on when to start treatments—in your mid-30s, she said—and the realistic limits of their ability to turn back the clock. “I can make...a 45-year-old look like she’s in her 30s, but not her 20s,” she explained."

"“The skin really needs fat to build, and we rely on outside sources to get those good fats,” explains Dr. Macrene Alexiades-Armenakas, MD, PhD. “The best fats, such as Omegas 3 and 6, tend to come from raw fats, not fried.” Think fish, avocado, pumpkin seeds, and flax seeds. “Frying food results in fully oxidized, saturated fat, which is the worst kind you can take into your body,” says Macrene. “It could impede the ideal structure of the skin.” While she believes that fried foods can keep you from the glowing skin you desire, she feels carbs and dairy might actually be worse for your complexion. “In my experience, the diet factors with the most impact on acne-prone patients are dairy—because of the hormones—and high amounts of carbs.”
