When you look in the mirror, do you see the energized, youthful face you’ve always seen? Or are you suddenly noticing lines and wrinkles that didn’t used to be there, or a tired, lackluster appearance that makes you look years older than you really are?
If you’re in the latter camp, don’t worry. Treat yourself to some of the best cosmetic treatments for aging skin that’ll trick people into thinking you’re younger and more rested than you are.
Wrinkles got you down? There are a number of injectable wrinkle treatments that can help lift you up. Dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® and Vollure® can be excellent choices if you’re looking to smooth away wrinkles and creases in your mid-face area, such as around your mouth or nose.
These fillers are also commonly used to restore lost facial volume, which can otherwise cause a sunken-in, tired appearance. Fillers like JUVÉDERM Volbella XC are specifically formulated to add fullness and shape to thinning lips. The best filler choice for you will depend on your specific needs and goals, so talk with an experienced professional to help you decide.
BOTOX® is another very common injectable treatment that can give your look a boost. BOTOX is an effective solution for treating most forehead lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles between your eyebrows. It typically lasts 3 to 4 months before needing a touch-up, but some evidence suggests that BOTOX may be able to prevent more wrinkles from popping up in the future.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation
There is a wide variety of laser skin rejuvenation and surfacing options. These treatments are relatively quick and easy and can leave you with a smoother, brighter and younger-looking complexion. Some advanced treatments like Halo by Sciton can even address multiple skin concerns at the same time.
Just some of the complexion issues that laser rejuvenation and surfacing can help to improve include:
- The appearance of lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Enlarged pores
- Acne scars
- Broken blood vessels
Pellevé® Wrinkle Reduction
Although not technically a laser treatment, Pellevé® wrinkle reduction can produce similar anti-aging results through the use of radiofrequency waves. These targeted waves gently heat the underlying layers of your skin to stimulate the production of collagen and other important proteins, while leaving the surrounding tissue and the surface of your skin unharmed.
Most people see a continued improvement in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and creases on their skin over the next 1 to 3 months after their Pellevé treatment.
Pellevé is a comfortable procedure that usually takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.
A Customized Skincare Regimen
Believe it or not, something as seemingly simple as upgrading your everyday skincare products can have a profound effect on your complexion. Your skin is as unique as your facial features, so it needs a customized regimen to help it look its best. Talk to your skincare professional about the right products to use for your skin type and condition, including a daily cleanser, moisturizer, sunscreen and specific treatment products.
Following the right skincare routine is also a great way to enhance and prolong the results of in-office anti-aging treatments like injectables and laser and radiofrequency treatments. In many cases, you can also combine these cosmetic treatment options to maximize your results.
