What causes my skin to age?
We cannot escape aging, it catches up to each one of us eventually. There are many things that cause our skin to age, some things which we cannot do anything about, and others which we can influence.
Each person ages differently, and depending on a variety of factors such as lifestyle, genetics, and the environment, aging can be delayed or it can be accelerated.
While we can do our best to maintain a healthy lifestyle, it is impossible to escape the natural aging process. As we get older our skin loses collagen and elasticity, we accumulate sun damage and toxins, visible lines appear on the face, and the face loses some of its youthful fullness. It is our genetics that determine how we age.
There are surgical and nonsurgical procedures that will correct the wrinkles, treat sun damage and discoloration, add volume to the face, and freeze the hands of time.
Some people choose to age gracefully, and to accomplish this, patients from all over the world turn to injectables as an alternative to cosmetic surgery, or as a complementary procedure.
Using Injectables to Reverse the Signs of Aging
With injectables, you can reverse the outward signs of aging. One of the most popular injections is BOTOX®, a cosmetic injection that relaxes and smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Fillers are another excellent alternative to treat fine lines and wrinkles of the face. Fillers are minimally invasive and are used to add volume, fill in wrinkles, and sculpt the contours of the face. Fillers are commonly injected in the face and neck, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance.
Men and women turn to dermal fillers because they produce immediate results, involve very little risk and offer a short recovery time.
Many people who consider BOTOX and dermal fillers, also consider fat transfer, facelift, facial rejuvenation, and platelet rich plasma rejuvenation.
