Growing older isn’t all bad. We gain wisdom and many happy memories with age. Along with the aspects of a life well-lived that we do love, there are some that we may not. Lines and wrinkles are often the least of people’s concerns once they start to see other signs of aging, like jowls and loss of facial volume. Just what it is that may make a person reach the point of wanting to seek professional treatment may differ from one to another. Still, when that point is reached, it is good to know what options are available. Here, we take a look at a few ways that adults of all ages may decrease the cosmetic signs of aging.
For more than 20 years, injectables like Botox and dermal fillers have been some of the most widely used beauty products around the world. These conservative wrinkle-reducers are popular among adults of all ages. They offer significant improvement in facial youthfulness and contouring, having the ability to accomplish many goals. For example, Botox can lift a drooping brow line, smooth crow’s feet and frown lines, and erase worry lines. Dermal fillers offer immediate results for lines and creases around the nose and mouth, thin lips, under eye bags, and more.
Surgical Facial Rejuvenation
Adults undergo facial rejuvenation surgeries every day in our country. What it takes to feel more confident about one’s appearance may differ from one to another because we all age uniquely. For one patient, rejuvenation may focus on the eye area and involve blepharoplasty or a brow lift. These procedures may be complemented by the use of Botox or dermal fillers. In other cases, facial rejuvenation is needed in the lower regions of the face. In this instance, a patient may choose to have a facelift or neck lift, or both. There are several advantages that go along with surgical facial rejuvenation, including lasting results and, in most cases, minimal downtime.
Practical Ways to Manage Aging Skin
Whether you are leaning toward surgical facial rejuvenation or injectable treatment, your aging skin can benefit from practical habits. The earlier in life that good habits start, the better the skin can look as it ages. Suggestions include:
Stay hydrated. The skin relies on water for moisture and also plumpness. Drink plenty of water every day to complement the use of a quality moisturizer. Avoid sun damage. Sunscreen is a must if you want resilient skin. A broad-spectrum sunscreen should be applied daily to all skin that is exposed. Sun damage begins to occur within minutes and can happen even when driving a car. Eat a nutritious diet. What is on your plate doesn’t just contribute to your waistline but also to the integrity of your skin. A nutrient-rich diet should have an abundance of antioxidants, vital chemicals that fight the free radicals that accelerate cosmetic aging.
