Cosmetic Services

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look your best.

It can actually affect how you feel, and your self-confidence. That’s why so many people spend hundreds of dollars every year, sometimes thousands, on cosmetic products designed to hide our imperfections and enhance our appearance.

While some of these over-the-counter products (like sunscreen) do help, and so do some services available at spas or a “medi-spa”, there are also some procedures that can be done by a dermatologist in a medical clinic that have faster and more dramatic results.

In Belize City, one of the options is the clinic of Dr. Jorge Lopez.

Services offered by Dr. Lopez

After an initial consultation, Dr. Lopez will suggest treatments that may help rejuvenate the skin on your face, neckline and chest.

Treatments can help correct:

  • Fine wrinkles
  • Age spots
  • Skin texture
  • Thin and transparent skin
  • Loss of firmness
  • Sagging skin

A number of environmental factors often act together with the normal aging process to prematurely age our skin. Most premature aging is caused by sun exposure. Other external factors that prematurely age our skin are repetitive facial expressions, gravity, sleeping positions, and smoking.

Without protection from the sun’s rays, just a few minutes of exposure each day over the years can cause noticeable changes to the skin. Freckles, age spots, spider veins on the face, rough and leathery skin, fine wrinkles that disappear when stretched, loose skin, a blotchy complexion, actinic keratoses (thick wart-like, rough, reddish patches of skin), and skin cancer can all be traced to sun exposure.

Photoaging occurs over a period of years. With repeated exposure to the sun, the skin loses the ability to repair itself, and the damage accumulates. Scientific studies have shown that repeated ultraviolet (UV) exposure breaks down collagen and impairs the synthesis of new collagen. The sun also attacks our elastin. Sun-weakened skin ceases to spring back much earlier than skin protected from UV rays. Skin also becomes loose, wrinkled, and leathery much earlier with unprotected exposure to sunlight.
