Want Your Skin to Age Well? Try These Strategies!
- Posted on: Aug 30 2020
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 around 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 became a popular method of skin rejuvenation several years ago. With SkinPen, we can provoke meaningful improvements in the appearance and integrity of the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production. SkinPen treatment typically takes no longer than an hour. It is made comfortable with a topical anesthetic and by the uniform movement of tiny needles across the skin. After one or more SkinPen treatments, the body produces more than its usual amount of collagen for several months.
- Tap into the Power of Antioxidants
You may have heard about antioxidants and how they slow the progress of aging. They do so by fighting free radicals, atoms that scavenge the body looking for energy, which they steal from cells that need it for repair and proper function. The great thing about antioxidants is that we can add them to our daily diet in the form of cranberries, spinach, kale, walnuts, kiwi, and red or pinto beans.
- Laser Skin Rejuvenation
There are multiple professional treatments to aid in the regeneration of healthy new skin cells. Laser devices provide a significant boost in this area. In our Manhattan office, we utilize a sophisticated laser device that combines IPL, non-ablative energy, and Nd:YAG pulsed energy to address multiple concerns simultaneously. With our M22 IPL laser, we can target problems like uneven pigment, vascular lesions, acne scars, rough texture, spider veins, and wrinkles, all at once.
- Moisturizing masks
Professional treatments get into the deeper layers of the skin to promote the ongoing collagen and elastin production that is necessary to age gracefully. Without these treatments, the production of vital chemicals declines sharply year after year. In addition to them, however, there are ways to pamper and soothe the skin at home. Moisturizing masks can be made with fresh, organic ingredients or may be purchased from a reputable manufacturer for use on a weekly or monthly basis.
