Best Treatments for Aging Skin

Are you starting to see some of the telltale signs of aging skin? Fine lines and wrinkles can make you look older and keep you from feeling your best. It’s important to choose an experienced skincare provider for your cosmetic services who can make sure your skin is healthy.

There are several esthetician services that can combat aging and give you fuller, younger-looking skin.

Neurotoxin injections

Botox, also known as botulinum toxin type A, is one of the most common neurotoxin injections to treat the deep wrinkles caused by repeated muscle overuse. The most common problem areas for people are frown lines around the mouth, wrinkles from squinting around the eyes, nose, and across the forehead.

Neurotoxin injections can be used preventatively to keep skin looking healthy or as a corrective treatment to smooth out deep-set problem areas. Botox, a purified toxin, is injected into the muscle to keep the muscle from making the movement that is contributing to the unwanted lines and treat the underlying cause.

Dermal fillers

There are multiple injectable dermal fillers like Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma that can help soften deep folds, reduce wrinkles, and restore facial volume. Juvederm products are made with hyaluronic acid, which is the same natural substance produced by the body to support skin structure, maintain elasticity, and provide hydration.

Whether your problem area is thinning lips, those deep laugh lines around your nose and mouth, or a sagging jawline and cheeks, dermal fillers can give you a subtle lift to reveal a refreshed, younger-looking you for up to a year.

Chemical peels

A chemical peel uses medical-grade products to remove the outermost layers of the skin to visibly improve appearance and texture. When dead skin peels off, the new skin that is rejuvenated is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the original skin.

Chemical peels use a potent formula to penetrate deeper into the skin to get fight signs of aging, uneven skin tone, acne, and more.

Laser treatments

Are you battling brown or red spots on your skin that are making you look older? There are multiple laser treatments that can smooth out the appearance of uneven skin. Laser treatment works by targeting an intense beam of light at a specific spot on the skin. The light is converted to heat and is absorbed by the skin cells to break up blood vessels or melanin-pigmented areas.

Laser treatment can also help remove sun-spot damage and firm the skin. During treatment, the skin is protected with a cooling mist before each laser pulse to make the procedure more comfortable and protect the skin.
