It used to be that age brought with it certain consequences that you simply couldn’t avoid. Well, those days are gone! With the innovative science behind countless procedures and products, men and women far beyond their youth are finding it possible to keep reflecting their inner vibrancy through their appearance. Rather than waiting for conditions like lines, wrinkles, creases, and sagging to become obvious, adults are taking a more proactive stance against the signs of aging. This could not be a more fitting way to maintain the desired appearance, and we are happy to lend a helping hand by tailoring treatment to each patient’s needs.
This neuromodulator, or gentle neurotoxin, has been used therapeutically since the 1950s. It wasn’t until the early 2000’s, though, that a cosmetic use had been developed. Essentially, the Botox solution blocks nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. Therapeutically, this is ideal for individuals with muscular disorders that cause spasms. Cosmetically, it is ideal for reducing frown lines, crow’s feet, horizontal lines, and other issues that originate in tightened muscles beneath the skin.
As age robs us of our ability to produce as much collagen as we once did, subcutaneous tissues break down. This leads to a loss of volume that flattens the cheeks, softens the jaw line, and allows pockets of fat to accumulate beneath the eyes. Fillers can reduce the appearance of lines and fill out tissues that have lost their youthful fullness.
It used to be that collagen loss was treated with collagen replacement. This often required the use of animal sources, which meant allergy testing. Now, we have soft tissue fillers that restore volume and stimulate the natural production of collagen. Sculptra is one example of a collagen-boosting injectable that achieves results that can last two years.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Another way to reveal healthy new skin cells and to promote collagen proliferation is to abrade the uppermost layers of skin using precision laser energy. Laser skin resurfacing is a great way for adults to reduce the signs of aging on their chest, neck, and face, or to get a jump start on their anti-aging routine.
