We are proud to have a cosmetic aspect of our practice. This allows our patients to address cosmetic concerns with a trained, friendly professional without traveling to another facility to do so. We understand the frustrations of cosmetic aging, especially for adults who would prefer to avoid comprehensive lifting procedures like a facelift or neck lift. Here, we discuss a few strategies that can support the whole concept of aging gracefully.
We all realize that cosmetic aging is just part and parcel of being alive. We know that, at some point, we’ll see those creases around our eyes and the nose and mouth. They indicate that we have smiled and laughed a lot. We may see some worry lines on the forehead and think, “no big deal.” But, usually, there is some sign of aging that shows up where we’ve had enough. Whatever that may be for you, there are strategies you can employ to truly age gracefully without plastic surgery. Here, we discuss a few of them.
- SkinPen Microneedling
Microneedling is a collagen-induction technique that takes the idea of dermal rolling to a whole new level. The SkinPen is an automated device that has a needle-clad tip. The numerous needles on the device applicator create tiny channels in multiple layers of the skin. The needles are just the right size to stimulate collagen production to repair the micro-injuries while keeping channels small enough to heal nearly instantaneously. There is no downtime after SkinPen treatments other than to practice good sun protection. With a customized treatment plan, adults of all ages can address their cosmetic concerns related to collagen depletion in the skin.
- Amplify the Skin with Antioxidants
Antioxidants are chemicals that are commonly included in health supplements. They are also found on your plate. When you eat kale, spinach, cranberries, walnuts, pinto beans, red, beans, or kiwi, you are getting a dose of tasty antioxidants. These chemicals are vital to health and cosmetic beauty because they fight free radicals, the unstable molecules that steal energy from healthy cells. Free radicals are associated with premature aging as well as many preventable diseases.
While we love our SkinPen and know it can achieve outstanding results, we also offer the next level microneedling with the Morpheus8 treatment. Morpheus8 is a radiofrequency microneedling device that permeates deeper layers of tissue by depositing radiofrequency energy through several tiny needles. The combination of techniques increases the collagen-building action in the dermis, leading to brighter, tighter skin over time.
