The aging process is not an easy thing to watch. And yet that is what many people do. What we do is help those who don’t want to sit by and observe their skin change year by year. With the help of various forms of technology, our patients can foster younger-looking skin at any age. Here, we look at some of the simple strategies that can benefit just about everyone.
Start with Amazing Products
Skincare is not limited to the purpose of cleaning oil and debris off your skin after a long day. The skincare products that are available today, especially those that are medical-grade, contain powerful ingredients that nourish newly-forming skin cells while also stimulating dead and damaged cells to slough off. Regardless of any professional treatment that you obtain to look younger, you can see the best results from any approach when you integrate medical-grade skincare cleansers, moisturizers, serums, and sunscreen into your day.
Step Up to Microneedling
Chemical peels and microdermabrasion are beneficial treatments that can manage the early signs of aging. However, microneedling may go above and beyond. Microneedling is the technique of making hundreds of tiny channels in the dermis. The body perceives these channels as wounds and infuses them with collagen and elastin, the chemicals that are involved in firming and plumping the skin.
- Standard microneedling may be a good start to postpone the onset of aging or to treat acne scars.
- Microneedling with PRP enhances the cascade of healing chemicals by introducing numerous growth factors contained in platelet-rich plasma.
- AquaGold microneedling treatment is referred to as mesotherapy, a technique that infuses the skin with vitamins, hyaluronic acid, or even Botox.
Go High Tech
Lasers have been used for many years to vaporize the old, outdated skin cells that age the appearance of the skin. Today, additional technologies have added to our capacity to nurture skin in a way that encourages cells to behave more youthfully. Venus Viva is a NanoFractional RF device that delivers radiofrequency deep into the dermis to stimulate tissue remodeling over time. A topical anesthetic is applied thirty minutes before treatment to improve comfort. Recovery is limited to a few days of redness, and results begin to appear right away.
The key to fostering younger-looking skin is to support the natural and ongoing production of collagen in as many ways as possible.
