Physical signs of aging are a normal and natural result of getting older, but let’s face it – no one enjoys the moments you look in the mirror and notice a little line that never used to be there. Here’s something you may not have realized: wrinkles are a minor sign of aging that get more attention than all the other tell-tale signs of aging, including loose skin and most importantly loss of volume! As we age, our bodies lose collagen and elastin, which leads to loss of volume in our faces and other areas of the body. Volume loss can lead to sagging skin and wrinkles, which ultimately makes up the perfect combination for looking old. Before you start worrying about it being too late, there are several things you can do to help you not only eliminate the already apparent signs of aging, but prevent them from worsening. Some of these involve minimally invasive medical procedures, such as tear trough fillers, which utilize hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to restore lost volume in the tear trough region. Whether you are now noticing volume loss under your eyes and in your cheeks, or realizing that your jawline isn’t as firm as it used to be, there are several options out there that can help you and you can go to this website to explore those options.
A combination of fat elimination under the chin through Kybella, for example, along with multiple options for skin tightening (yes, non surgical options,) may just be the perfect solution for you. Keep in mind that there are endless non surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures that can do wonders for your skin and youthfulness, without forcing you to undergo any kind of surgical intervention. Here are a few areas that you may not be noticing, and how to keep them on point.
Volume loss under the eyes and cheeks
Have you ever noticed how older individuals tend to have something of a gaunt looking face and overall body, even when there is some fat on them? This is because we lose collagen as we age, leaving us with more hollowness and less of that fat that keeps us looking fresh and youthful. What can be done about it? Fillers. Before you start worrying about looking like Micky Rourke, keep in mind that dermal fillers can be extremely subtle if used correctly by a skilled injector. If you don’t already know someone who gets these miracle injections, I can assure you, you have seen several people who have them, without even realizing it. Dermal fillers can be used to restore lost volume in the face and sometimes hands, to create a more youthful appearance. Another plus? They are non surgical, involve almost no downtime, and are usually dissolvable should you be displeased with your results!
What is a quality that most of our favorite “non-aging” celebrities all have in common? A snatched jawline. In most celebrities deemed the most attractive people in the world, both male and female, we can often notice a perfectly defined jawline. Whether you have loose skin or some fat around your jawline, it may be making you look older than you are. Luckily there is Kybella – a minimally invasive procedure that will get rid of the excess fat around your jaw. Kybella injections dissolve fat cells around the jawline over the course of 1 – 2 months, and you can check here to get more in depth information on this. Other options include CoolSculpting and, if you are okay with a surgical option, liposuction. You may not have any fat, but loose skin, in which case you get skin tightening treatments such as PDO thread lifting, Secret RF microneedling, or Fraxel laser. In addition you can get a dermal filler to bring out your jawline more.
Your neck and chest
One of the most neglected areas of care and maintenance is the neck. Your neck ages just like your face does and will absolutely show signs of aging including wrinkling, loose and sagging skin, as well as sun damage and pigmentation issues. Can you prevent it? Yes. Our necks often stretch out with constant muscle contractions, leaving us with loose and wrinkly skin. That can be prevented with Botox injections that relax the muscle in your neck and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. You can also get dermal fillers in your neck, as well as treatments such as Fraxel to rejuvenate the skin on your neck and chest from sun damage and wrinkling over the years. PDO threads may also be inserted in the neck to lift and rejuvenate sagging skin in the area.
Overall aging is a natural occurrence that affects everyone. If you are not bothered by any of your signs of aging, more power to you! For those of you that want to do something about it or want to avoid it getting worse, the above mentioned procedures are all minimally invasive, FDA approved, and safe. Be sure to consult with Dr. Schwarzburg at Skinly Aesthetics before moving forward with any of these procedures to confirm that you are a candidate!
