As we age, we are accustomed to feeling the wear and tear on our bodies in our joints and various aches and pains. What is harder to deal with for many are the subtle ways our appearance reveals our age to others. Whether through wrinkles, lines, or parts of our faces that have lost their youthful glow or tightness, our skin can betray us, making us look older than we are.
The most common remedies for this unwanted part of aging tend to be expensive, painful, plastic surgery or medical “miracle” cures that promise more than they actually deliver. Luckily, there are some proven methods to regain your skin’s youthful appearance without expensive surgery or broken promises of fad-products.
How aesthetic treatments can benefit you
The main skin complaints as we age are wrinkles resulting from skin losing its elasticity. This loosening and drooping and deepening of lines and furrows, or blemishes due to acne or other natural aging processes, can cause the skin to look full of lines. To regain the smooth, even tone your skin had in your youth, you have several options at your disposal, such as the following:
- Platelet-rich plasma(PRP) targeted treatment- if you have fine lines or even deep furrows at your brown, doctors are able to harness the healing factors found in your own blood to help rejuvenate your skin. By removing blood and spinning it in a centrifuge, our team can create a concentrated solution of your own platelets that is then injected in a targeted fashion to smooth your skin.
- Vampire facelift- far something monstrous, the vampire facelift is called that because it also uses PRP but adds in fillers of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. The fillers create a more youthful look and contour for your face, and then the team follows up with PRP injections to increase your skin’s firmness and tone. PRP and fillers can also improve scars from acne or other depressions on the face, which further changes your skin’s appearance to make it a more uniform tone and texture.
- Botox- injections of Botox have been shown to decrease the effects of migraine headaches and remove the evidence of crow’s feet, furrows, and smile and frown lines by relaxing the muscles underneath the skin. The resulting change restores your face to a more youthful appearance.
Regardless of the origin of your issue with your skin, there are many ways that you can address the problems without surgery or empty promises, and these proven techniques can help return your face to the one you miss looking at in the mirror.
