Is There a "Magic Bullet" to Turn Back the Hands of Time?
Monday Mar 23, 2020
There is no one single treatment that can turn back the hands of time when it comes to our appearance. Aging takes a three-dimensional toll on our outward appearance. We lose bone as we age and this affects our underlying support and structure. It impacts the cheeks, jawline and even the brow and tear trough area. We lose fat and fat pads migrate south and sometimes protrude. This is often evident under the eyes or with the appearance of jowls. Finally, the skin thins, wrinkles and sags, and is often damaged from the sun, which can result in brown spots, redness and broken capillaries.
Therefore, it takes multiple modalities to address the three main components of aging. Laser, Ultra Sound, Microneedling RF, and Light Devices regenerate healthy collagen and clear sun-damaged skin. Threadlifts can stimulate collagen, provide a dynamic lift and assist in texture improvements. Sculptra and Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers (such as Juvederm and Restylane) can be used to replace lost volume and contour the face. Neuromodulators (Botox and Dysport) work well on dynamic facial creases, for a softer, less wrinkled appearance. Kybella can also be used to decrease pockets of fat under the chin or decrease jowls.
All this may seem overwhelming. That is why we always recommend talking to a professional first to discuss your individual needs.
