Discovering The Skin Benefits of Vitamin C

Olansky Dermatology Associates logo

Do you take Vitamin C to ward off a cold or ward off wrinkles? Contrary to popular belief, research supports the benefits of Vitamin C for your skin far more than preventing the common cold. Even the British soldiers many centuries ago discovered the power of Vitamin C and used it to prevent scurvy, a disease that causes ulcers and bleeding under the skin among other symptoms. Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is what the skin needs in order to produce collagen. Collagen is a protein that helps give your skin its firmness and aids in producing more blood vessels. Vitamin C also helps your body create scar tissue and helps the skin repair itself. Latest research further suggests that Vitamin C can be used to reduce sunburn and even prevent long-term sun damage. This is no excuse for daily sunscreen, as it does not prevent actual sun exposure, rather Vitamin C just helps to lessen the severity of sun damage.

How does Vitamin C help reduce wrinkles?

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that is responsible for slowing the rate of free-radical damage. What does this have to do with wrinkles? Free radicals are the molecules that damage your skin’s collagen. Damaged collagen results in dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles. For those that have stubborn wrinkles or want to eliminate fine lines completely, a board certified dermatologist can help. Olansky Dermatology Associates of Atlanta offers the latest in cosmetic anti-aging services, including JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel and a full list of aesthetic facial peels and microdermabrasion services.

Your skin is the largest organ in your body. It makes sense to feed it with the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and supple through all stages of life. When choosing your diet, try to include fruits and vegetables that contain Vitamin C. Remember, your body does not store Vitamin C, so make sure you reach the recommended intake each day.

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Kristen R.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

Mike D.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!

Lindsay S.

I have been going to Olansky Dematology for many years now, whether for a specific problem, or just for a really great deep facial, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Every single staff member is knowledgeable and professional. The customer service I receive every visit leaves a positive and lasting impression. I always feel comfortable and at ease while I am there. Great staff!

Janet R.

I seem to live at this place! Whether it’s for an appointment with a doctor or for an aesthetic treatment, I am there frequently. I cannot say enough good things. Efficient, friendly, the best doctors, and a new aesthetic center with the latest in procedures and products to keep us looking almost as young as we feel. It’s always fun to see Emily and she knows just what to recommend.
