Signs of aging are usually first seen as changes in skin quality over the years. As time passes, skin gradually begins to lose its youthful elasticity and volume, becoming thinner, looser, and increasingly lined and wrinkled. Depleting collagen levels also dry out the skin, causing it to become rougher in texture. While aging itself cannot be stopped, the right anti-aging treatments can slow its effects. Revitalizing skin care treatments can restore a more attractive and youthful appearance and help you maintain even, smooth skin for as long as possible.
Common Aging Concerns
Common signs of aging skin include:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Deep creases
- Thinning skin
- Sagging skin
- Rough skin texture
- Increasingly dry skin
A variety of treatments can slow and even reverse the effects of aging. With attentive care and appropriate treatment, you can reduce the signs of aging and keep your skin youthful and rejuvenated. Skin care treatments for aging skin include:
- Neuromodulators: Facial injectable neuromodulators block certain small muscle movements in the upper face so that the forehead and eye area lie smooth and wrinkle-free. BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® treatments administered every 4 to 6 months can smooth out wrinkles and slow the development of permanent lines like furrowed brows, forehead lines, and crow’s feet wrinkles.
- Fillers: Facial injectable fillers enhance skin volume and minimize fine lines, wrinkles, creases, and sagging skin in the lower face. Popular fillers include JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, Sculptra®, RADIESSE®, and Bellafill®. To correct signs of aging in the mouth and nose area, cheeks, and lips, regular treatments are recommended for long-term anti-aging maintenance.
- Skin Peels: Skin peels are specially formulated chemical treatments that remove the damaged, outer surface layer of skin so that the newer, healthier skin is visible. A customized skin peel can correct fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, rough skin texture, and more.
- Skin Resurfacing: Fraxel®, alexandrite, and CO2 lasers heat and remove the outer layer of skin, resolving textural irregularities, fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and skin laxity. The treatment stimulates collagen renewal and leads to smoother, tighter, and more evenly toned skin.
