“Anti-aging” is a term that is often used in conjunction with treatments like Botox or laser skin rejuvenation. This term may be misrepresenting what such therapies can do, though. Rather than viewing anti-aging as a method of recapturing something that has been lost, we are now learning to view it as a method of postponing the inevitable. That is the very least we can do for our wellbeing.
The Hidden Process of Aging
A baby’s skin is about as good as it gets. This is because we have an abundance of collagen to support dermatologic health and to help our recovery quickly when the skin gets a scratch or scrape. In addition to strong collagen strands and consistent proliferation, youth also gives us a healthy amount of fat to round out our rosy little cheeks. By the time we have transitioned into our twenties, these are vital aspects that begin to change. However, little, if any, visible signs occur until several years later. Rather than wait for them, why not take action to prevent them from showing up before their time?
Early Action to Support Youthful Skin
The ideal situation for gorgeous skin would include early action in the form of daily sunscreen use from childhood on. Unfortunately, this rarely happens. For many adults, the awareness of UV damage simply wasn’t there when they were growing up. We are still gaining ground in this area. Whenever sun protection starts, it will provide ample benefit going forward.
At the earliest point in adulthood, there is the good reason to explore innovative treatments that facilitate collagen production that has already begun its descent. Long before the first wrinkle appears, it is advantageous to work on collagen remodeling. This may take place in the form of chemical peels, Skin Rejuvenation, and laser and light treatments.
When to Consider Injectables
There is a perception about injectables like Botox being primarily geared toward wrinkle-reduction. Like other innovative modalities, injectable cosmetic solutions like Botox and other neuromodulators are beneficial on the proactive front. If you are interested in injectables as a preventative for premature aging, there is no reason to postpone a consultation with your trusted cosmetic provider.
