5 Ways to Reduce the Signs of Aging in Your Skin
Do you wish you had smoother, more youthful-looking skin, but you don’t want to undergo the long recovery process or expense of plastic surgery? Explore these skin rejuvenation solutions that are so quick and easy you can do them on your lunch hour.
At Palm Beach Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery in West Palm Beach, FL, Dr. Frederic M. Barr, M.D., F.A.C.S, one of Florida’s most skilled and experienced plastic surgeons, leads our team. We provide cosmetic and plastic surgery treatment options for our patients who are unhappy with the effects of aging on their skin.
Prevent Signs of Aging with Proper Skincare
By far, the best way to prevent the effects of aging on your skin is to take proper care of it every day. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends these skincare practices:
- Cleansing your skin regularly
- Eating a healthy diet
- Applying moisturizer and sunscreen every day
- Abstaining from tanning beds
- Quitting smoking
- Avoiding alcohol consumption
These methods can help slow down the aging process, but they won’t eliminate it. That’s why we offer both plastic surgery procedures like facelifts, eyelid surgery, and brow lifts and non-surgical options like cosmetic injectables, dermal fillers, and laser treatments.
Non-surgical options are quite popular among our patients because they’re quick, safe, effective, and affordable.
4 Different Treatments That Will Reduce the Effects of Aging
1. Cosmetic Injectables
Cosmetic injectables are one of the best options for reducing the signs of aging on your skin. Most injectables are neuromodulators, which work by relaxing your facial muscles to smooth away wrinkles and fine lines.
Botox injections have been FDA-approved for over 30 years to treat wrinkles and lines on the face. It works by disrupting the nerve signals that cause facial muscles to stay in the contracted position and form wrinkles. Botox is quick, safe, virtually painless, and only takes 10 or 20 minutes, perfect for fitting in on your lunch break.
Dysport works by diminishing the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. It’s a popular treatment among our patients because it’s fast-acting, and results can last for up to five months. Treatment sessions only take about 20 minutes, and you’ll see noticeable results within two to three days.
Juvéderm XC is a sugar-based cosmetic injectable primarily used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Results last up to a year. The Juvéderm family of products also includes Juvéderm Voluma and Volbella XC, which are dermal fillers that restore fullness to the face and smooth away wrinkles.
The Restylane family of products consists of hyaluronic acid, which helps reduce the appearance of moderate to severe facial lines, wrinkles, and folds. Restylane also can add a perky fullness to your lips or diminish imperfections on your nose or under your eyes. Treatment sessions are relatively quick, anywhere between 15 minutes and an hour.
Kybella is the only FDA-approved treatment for defining and tightening the neckline underneath the chin. It contains the same naturally occurring substance your body uses to break down fat. We use a micro-fine needle to inject the Kybella under your chin, with noticeable results in about two to four sessions. Each session is quick and virtually painless, only taking about 15 and 20 minutes.
2. Fraxel® Laser Treatments
Fraxel Laser treatment is another way to reduce the signs of aging on your skin without undergoing plastic surgery. Fraxel uses an innovative microthermal method to treat and refresh old epidermal cells without damaging the surrounding tissue. A treatment session lasts between 20 to 40 minutes and effectively diminishes signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores.
3. Matrix RF Sublative Rejuvenation
Matrix RF Sublative Rejuvenation is a revolutionary treatment approved for all skin types and colors that reduces the effects of aging, including skin discoloration, wrinkles, and textural imperfections. It’s a great alternative to plastic surgery because a complete facial treatment only takes 20 minutes and doesn’t require downtime or recovery.
4. Non-Ablative Laser Photo Rejuvenation (IPL)
The Laser Photo Rejuvenation treatment is another non-surgical option to help you regain a younger appearance. We place a handheld device gently over your face, which alters the molecular structure of aging skin, making it look tighter and more youthful. It reduces the signs of aging by eliminating sunspots, redness and discoloration, facial veins, and other imperfections.
