Want to Turn Back the Hands of Time? Consider These Treatments!
- Posted on: Sep 30 2019
When we were young, many of us went through a time during which we wished to look a little older, a little more sophisticated. By midlife, this desire is but a distant memory. As we age, the last thing many of us want is to look our age. This can be somewhat of a challenge due to the effects of ultraviolet rays in sunshine and basic lifestyle habits. Let’s face it, the busy-ness of life can age the face. In our NYC office, we help our patients address the changes that keep them from looking and feeling their best. It may come as a surprise to you to hear that surgery isn’t always involved.
Correcting Lines and Wrinkles
We talk a lot about lines and wrinkles as aspects of aging that we wish to correct. This is understandable, certain creases, such as frown lines, can make the face look unfriendly. There are several ways to address this concern. The most suitable approach depends on the extent of cosmetic aging that has occurred. Beginning with the conservative side, patients may consider:
- Chemical peels
- Microneedling with PRP
- Professional skincare to use daily
- Injectables for mild to moderate lines and creases
- Laser skin resurfacing
One of the reasons that lines and wrinkles develop in the first place is because the skin’s supply of firming collagen degrades over time. Part of this process is the deterioration of collagen strands related to sun exposure. Another aspect of tissue laxity is that the body doesn’t continue its ample production of collagen as we age. Some people take a collagen supplement to augment the nutrients they get from their diet. Collagen should be taken alongside a time-released vitamin C capsule for the body to use the nutrients optimally. On the cosmetic end, tissue laxity can be addressed with:
- Microneedling with PRP to stimulate collagen production
- Laser skin resurfacing to accelerate cell turnover
- Silhouette InstaLift treatment for a gentle lift of the lower face
- MINT Lift to recontour the aging neck
- Facelift or other surgical lifts for more significant laxity along the jawline or around the eyes
Age is more than a number, or is it less? Your age doesn’t define you, especially when your outer appearance matches your inner light. To schedule a consultation and explore our anti-aging treatments, call (212) 508-0000.
