Aging is so much more than a number, and could also be so much less. It depends on how we look at it. Today, with the sea of creams and serums and age-defying treatments, no one has to look their age. In our Sonterra and La Casita offices, we treat everyone from twenty-somethings wanting to hold on to their smooth, firm skin to seniors who want to give their appearance a boost by correcting sunspots and loose skin. Wherever you lie on the spectrum of cosmetic aging, we’ve got a strategy that will work for you. Here, we discuss a few of the easy-peasy ways you can refresh.
Smooth and Tighten
The first place that many people think they need to smooth and tighten is their face. However, the body ages in close timing to the face. Therefore, we’ve got to remember the bigger picture. Collagen and elastin don’t get depleted only around the eyes and nose and mouth. At some point, people begin seeing problems like “bat wings” or saggy skin above the knees. Each of these concerns deserves attention if it bothers you.
For the prevention and treatment of facial aging, our patients may consider:
- There are three ways to microneedle these days. Some people choose basic microneedling, during which tiny channels are created in the upper layer of the skin. This brings more collagen to the area for more tightness, firmness, and tone. Microneedling with PRP adds a biological substance to enhance the regenerative response. Finally, RF microneedling creates microchannels and also gently heats deeper tissue for immediate collagen contraction as well as progressive remodeling for maximum results.
- Chemical peels. With various strengths, chemical peels are an excellent solution for a wide variety of concerns. From sun damage to fine lines and wrinkles, chemical peels hold value in prevention and correction.
- Of course, one of the primary ways in which we enhance the face includes dermal fillers and neuromodulators like Botox.
- Double-chin treatment. Many people report a concern about increasing submental fullness and sagging of the upper neck tissue as they age. Fat in this area can be banished by CoolSculpting or Kybella. When skin tightening is also needed, we turn to Ultherapy.
For a timeless body, our patients may consider:
The options for nonsurgical body contouring continue to expand. Some of the treatments we commonly perform reduce fat, tighten skin, eliminate cellulite, and generally improve proportions. Depending on your concerns and desired outcome, we may suggest:
