Anti-Aging Q & A

Cosmetic Solutions Laser and Skin Care Center

What are anti-aging treatments?

Often the best treatment is a combination of at home proper skin care, including daily use of sunscreen, and an ongoing program of skin rejuvenation with lasers, facials, and chemical peels in association with Botox and volumizing fillers. Anti-aging treatments are designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, loose skin, and hyperpigmentation. Non-surgical, anti-aging treatments are usually categorized as skin treatments, injectables, and laser treatments.

Skin treatments include facials, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and dermarolling or microneedling.

Injectable treatments include Botox® and other muscle relaxers, dermal fillers, liquid facelifts, and fat-melting treatments.

Laser treatments harness laser energy to stimulate collagen production in your skin for a tightened and toned appearance. You can also have laser treatment to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, age spots, and spider veins.

What imperfections do anti-aging treatments correct?

As you get older, your body produces less collagen and elastin, the fibers necessary to keep your skin plump and responsive to facial expressions. Your skin becomes thinner and drier and begins to wrinkle and sag. Fortunately, the team at Cosmetic Solutions provides anti-aging treatments using medical-grade products to address skin concerns including:

  • Wrinkles on your forehead and around your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Volume loss in your lips, chin, cheeks, and brow
  • Loose or drooping eyelids
  • Hyperpigmentation and age spots
  • Sagging skin on your neck

 

Many of these signs of aging develop on your neck, chest, and hands as well as your face. You may want to treat these other areas that show your age as well as your face.

How should I take care of my skin at home?

In addition to having regular skin care and anti-aging treatments with the experts at Cosmetic Solutions, you can also take care of your skin at home. You can purchase professional-grade skin care products after your treatment to continue your expert skin care at home. Keeping your skin clean and moisturized, with the right products for your skin type, can help your skin stay fresh.

It is critical that you take care to avoid the sun. The UV rays in sunlight break down the fibers in your skin and can lead to premature signs of aging. Always wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen, even if you aren’t planning on spending a lot of time outside or if it’s cloudy. Make sure to apply it to your neck, chest, and hands, as well as your face.

It’s also important to drink plenty of water. Doctors recommend your daily water consumption should be somewhere between 64 ounces and half your body weight in ounces every day. Not only does water help flush toxins and impurities out of your system, but your skin looks plumper when you’re sufficiently hydrated.
