09 Nov There Are Choices To Reverse The Signs Of Aging
It is a fact that when we talk about aging skin today, invariably there are quite a few terms thrown into the mix, namely; Botox, fillers, peels, the dreaded age spots – and the list goes on. Much of what many of us think is just, “natural aging” has really much more to do with sun exposure and how we have treated our skin in our younger years. For many of us, that adage: “If I knew then what I know now” holds very true. Aging skin can be avoided -and it’s never too late to start.
Our enemy, as we age, is the fact that collagen and elastin weaken with the passing of time. This results in sagging as the skin loses this support. The skin thins over time and loses some of its fat, resulting in loss of a smooth texture. Additionally, every person has a genetic code that dictates a large portion of this process, contributing to skin that looks amazingly young for some people, and the unfortunate reverse in others.
Where Do Botox, Fillers, And Peels Come In?
So, you haven’t been the best in protecting your skin from the sun. Unfortunately, turning back that hands of time is not going to happen. However, indeed we are living in an age where we do have options and opportunities to improve the way we look, even after our ignorant younger selves played havoc with our skin.
Enter: Botox, Fillers, Anti-aging skin peels, and treatments to dissolve age spots. These miraculous treatments can and do improve the look and the feel of your skin. Suddenly wrinkles are smoothed, there is a brightness and tone to the skin and the face is fuller and has a much younger appearance.
The anti-aging properties of Botox are likely behind many a well-preserved face. When injected, Botox relaxes muscles, preventing skin from creasing and causing wrinkles. It is highly effective for “expression lines,” such as frown and surprise lines on the forehead and crow’s feet around the eyes.
Rather than just smoothing or tightening skin, an injectable filler is used to change the facial profile to a more youthful one. The injection of dermal filler materials under the skin can help fill in deep creases, such as nasolabial folds, create fuller lips and pad hollow cheeks and eyes.
There are lots of choices here. Depending on what you are striving to achieve, there are different levels of chemical peels. They are usually grouped and defined by their relative strength and depth of the peel that is achieved. A chemical skin peel is a popular procedure used to treat various skin problems and conditions from age spots, acne, wrinkles, and even some cancerous and precancerous lumps.
So, as you can see, there are many options for the sun worshipper of old. Knowledge is power, and now that we know the harmful effects of the sun, we will do better. But, we can also improve what we have.
