You don’t have to deal with the signs of aging, from wrinkles to dull, dry skin, on your own. Your aesthetic doctor offers a variety of skin care treatments that can take years off of your appearance. Scheduling an appointment with a skin doctor can be the first step you take to getting boost of confidence and to getting your youthful looks back.
How An Aesthetic Doctor Can Help You:
Fine lines and wrinkles are often what people think of first when they think about the signs of aging. It shouldn’t be much of a surprise that an aesthetic doctor offers lots of options when it comes to minimizing the appearance of wrinkles on your skin and getting a more refreshed and youthful look.
For example, wrinkles created by movements, such as frowning, squinting and furrowing your brow, are often best treated with Botox injections. Botox works by temporarily blocking certain muscles, so that you can’t make the movements associated with the wrinkles. Botox has long been popular with both men and women and was the most performed treatment on adults between the ages of 35 and 55 in 2015, according to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons.
Wrinkles aren’t only caused by movement. As you age, your face also loses fat and the skin becomes thinner, making certain lines more visible. Gravity also place a role in the development of lines. Fortunately, your skin doctor can help add volume to your face, smoothing out certain lines and give you a more youthful contour, with injectable fillers such as Belotero, Juvederm and Radiesse.
Fillers can be given at the same time as Botox injections, if desired, allowing you to correct a variety of signs of aging at once. The fillers provide a temporary fix and usually last anywhere from a few months to more than a year.
Botox and fillers can help with wrinkles, but they won’t help minimize other signs of aging and skin damage, such as enlarge pores, dull skin and dark spots. A treatment that helps encourage exfoliation, such as chemical or facial peel, can be a good option for you if you’re concerned about skin texture or spots. Peels come in a variety of strengths, from very mild to deep, and can help reduce a variety of skin concerns.
Get Fuller Eyelashes
Your aesthetic doctor can also help you get fuller, thicker eyelashes, no mascara needed, by prescribing bimatoprost ophthalmic solution. Bimatoprost ophthalmic solution helps your own eyelashes grow and is the only treatment FDA-approved to do so. You need to keep using the medicine every day to continue to see results. Many people using bimatoprost ophthalmic solution see an improvement in their lash volume and length after about 12 to 16 weeks.
