When you step out of the house and into the world, the success of your day depends not on luck but on a positive mental attitude. Confidence is the key to happiness and good health. When you take care of yourself with anti-aging treatments you look better and so you feel better about yourself. Consulting with a board-certified dermatologist means you’re also getting a first-class evaluation of your skin health. Early detection of skin problems can go a long way toward promoting good health and wellness.
It’s part psychological and part physiological. When you feel good about your appearance, you are happier. When your skin receives a clean bill of health from a dermatologist, you have the reassurance of wellness.
Famed makeup artist Scott Barnes, author of “Face to Face,” says looking good leads to feeling good, and feeling good leads to empowerment. When you put your best self forward, it gives you the opportunity to really accelerate in life, he says.
Still, makeup is and always will be a cover up. Sometimes we need to go to the root of the problem. And that’s where anti-aging treatments enter the picture.
There are many anti-aging treatments that can improve your appearance and overall health. You might consider some or even all of these services, depending on your concerns, any underlying medical conditions and your own aesthetic goals. Whether the concern is sagging skin, large pores, wrinkles, stretch marks or something else, you don’t have to struggle alone with over-the-counter preparations that make big promises while delivering results that may disappoint. Your dermatologist has an arsenal of safe tools for combatting the aging process. And they work.
Many people concerned about the signs of aging start with Skin Revitalization,a type of light-based, non-surgical treatment that improves the skin’s appearance quickly and easily. With skin revitalization, those undesirable brown spots, sun damage and blood vessels fade away, leaving you with more beautiful skin. These treatments deliver superb results fast, with minimal to no discomfort or downtime.
Laser Skin Renewal taps the power of high-intensity light to erase skin imperfections on the face and body. These might be age spots, sun damage, even fine lines across the skin. The laser penetrates your skin with minimal discomfort, removing old skin cells and creating new collagen for smoother, more elastic skin.
With microdermabrasion, your skin is treated with a special rotating tool that gently abrades old skin to reveal new, smoother skin.
Chemical Peels treat larger areas to produce smoother skin with fewer wrinkles. A chemical solution is applied to the treatment area with a small brush. This solution causes old skin to exfoliate so it peels away easily. Your dermatologist or aesthetician can review the options available to you.
Stretch Mark Reduction helps reduce and even eliminate the appearance of those annoying red lines that form when our skin stretches too quickly or too far, such as from weight gain. Pregnancy is a common cause of stretch marks. Your dermatologist will use a laser to target stretch marks, breaking down the rubbery surface to encourage new skin growth. The result is smoother skin with an even tone. So you are swimsuit ready.
Laser light is also a key component of Photofacial Treatments that zero in on skin pigments like age spots and rosacea (a blotch of redness, often on the cheeks). Laser light draws out the skin cells producing the off-color pigment, leaving a smooth, more even skin tone.
Facials can include steam treatment, exfoliation, creams and lotions, masks, peels and even massage. Your dermatologist can help you decide which treatment is the best option, depending on your needs and goals. Peels may be the right option for treating larger areas of skin that show signs of aging. For acne treatment, a deep cleansing facial may be the first step.
Fillers, including JUVÉDERM and Restylane, are injectable treatments that smooth out the skin from below the surface. These FDA-approved treatments can help accentuate the appearance of cheekbones, create fuller lips and help erase fine lines around the mouth.
Botox isa popular non-surgical treatment proven to reduce facial wrinkles and fine lines safely and with minimal discomfort. Get rid of forehead wrinkles. Frown lines. Crows’ feet around the eyes. In terms of direct and immediate wellness benefits, Botox is also an effective treatment for migraines and some muscular conditions.
This is just a sampling of the anti-aging treatments available to you. Whether some or all of these services will be beneficial depends on your individual health and cosmetic goals. The bottom line is, you have the power to look your best. When you look your best you’ll feel your best. And when you’re operating at the peak of your powers, the world, as they say, is your oyster.
