Aging is unavoidable, but you don’t have to live with the results. A number of different cosmetic services are available to help you eliminate wrinkles, sagging skin and other evidence of aging.
If you have noticed an increase in the amount of hair on your face, you may benefit from dermaplaning. This procedure eliminates the fine vellus hair that grows on the face, and it exfoliates the top layer of skin for a fresher, more youthful appearance.
If you want to improve your skin’s ability to produce elastin and collagen naturally, microneedling is an excellent choice. During this procedure, a fine needle is used to make tiny perforations in the skin’s outer layer in order to stimulate new growth.
Another way to fight the signs of aging and sun damage is through the use of a facial peel. This treatment stimulates the sloughing of the upper layers of skin, thus removing damaged skin cells.
Juvederm® produces a line of facial fillers designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These fillers also add volume to the skin, giving it a more youthful appearance. Several different versions of this treatment are available, including traditional Juvederm®, Juvederm® XC, Juvederm® Ultra and Juvederm® Ultra Plus.
Another effective treatment for fine lines and wrinkles is BOTOX® cosmetic. This treatment option involves the injection of a highly purified protein that relaxes the muscles responsible for creating certain types of wrinkles.
Radiesse® is a synthetic injectable filler that can eliminate moderate to severe creases and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. This treatment works by supplementing the skin’s own supply of collagen.
Yet another dermal filler currently available to clients with aging skin is Belotero®. This filler integrates with your skin’s own tissues to add volume and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Each of the treatment options above offers different advantages and disadvantages for clients. If you are considering cosmetic treatment, it is important to consult a qualified cosmetic doctor who can explain your options and help you make the best decision.
