Effects of Aging on Skin

Skin aging is a complex biological process influenced by intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Genetics, hormones, pollution, chronic light exposure, and pollution are a few factors that result in progressive changes to each skin layer and the overall appearance of skin. As aging occurs, the skin loses collagen and elasticity, appearing discolored, wrinkled, sagging, dull, and rough.

Fortunately, the right anti-aging treatment can combat the visible effects of aging. Popular and effective treatments include soft tissue fillers, botox, photodynamic therapy, and topical treatments. People interested in receiving anti-aging treatment should contact us for more information about our available treatments.

Botox

Botox is the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure done in the United States. This drug is derived from the toxin made by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When Botox is injected into the face, it reduces the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles.

Botox injections work by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles so they cannot contract, causing wrinkles to relax and soften. During treatment, a thin needle administers the injection into the target facial areas. It is an effective and minimally invasive procedure with results that can last three to six months.

Dermal Fillers

As aging occurs, people’s faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat, making fine lines and wrinkles more apparent. Dermal fillers, also known as soft tissue fillers, are injectable implants that help diminish facial lines and restore facial volume. They can address varying signs of aging, from filling in wrinkles and sagging skin to smoothing deep under-eye circles, lifting cheekbones, and smoothing lip lines.

The process of administering fillers is quick and requires minimal to no recovery time afterwards. Fillers can consist of various substances that each address different cosmetic issues. Some fillers may not be right for every patient, so patients should talk to our dermatologist about the best option for their needs.

Laser Treatment

Various laser treatments can correct skincare concerns. Laser treatments involve directing short, concentrated laser beams at skin irregularities to promote collagen growth and remove skin layers. These treatments target various colors within the skin and super-heat them to create a very controlled skin injury that stimulates the body’s natural healing processes.

Our laser treatments target different aging issues. Anti-aging laser treatments can result in the stimulated production of collagen and visible improvements of wrinkles and sagging. Besides strengthened skin structure, additional results include reducing imperfections such as dark spots and pigmentation issues. People should have a consultation with us to determine which laser treatment can help them reach their cosmetic goals.

Topical Treatments

Topical treatments that use ingredients such as retinoids, vitamin C, and alpha hydroxy acids are also effective in reversing aging signs. Studies have shown that retinol treatments affect the cellular and molecular properties of the epidermis and dermis to fight pre-existing signs of aging. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals that cause oxidative stress to the skin and lead to premature skin aging. It is also essential to the skin cells’ production of collagen, supporting skin structure, and delaying aging signs.

Alpha hydroxy acids are used to treat aging skin concerns such as age spots, skin dryness, and wrinkles. They cause dead skin cells to slough off and make room for regrowth of new skin and may even stimulate collagen and elastin production. In general, medical-grade anti-aging products are more effective than over-the-counter products.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does anti-aging treatment cost?

The cost of anti-aging treatment will differ for each patient and depend on various factors such as the treatment type, number of sessions, location, and more. Since anti-aging treatments are cosmetic, most insurance companies will not cover these procedures. People should contact their insurance providers for more information before seeking treatment.

What are the different types of dermal fillers?

There are dermal fillers made from synthetic and natural substances. Natural dermal fillers include ones consisting of collagen, hyaluronic acid, or calcium hydroxylapatite. Other dermal fillers consist of synthetic substances that mimic substances naturally produced by the body, such as polylactic acid and polyalkylimide.

What are the different types of anti-aging laser treatments?

There are two categories of laser treatments, ablative and non-ablative. Ablative treatments damage the epidermis to rejuvenate the deeper skin and are best used for more advanced treatment of fine lines, deep wrinkles, and sagging. Non-ablative laser treatments are gentler and can help with irregular skin pigmentation problems and uneven skin tone.

How long does it take to see the results from Botox treatment?

People can see results as early as three to four days after receiving the injections. Most patients will see their results 10 to 14 days after treatment. We recommend that patients wait the full two weeks after receiving Botox to see the maximum results.

How to retinoids reduce signs of aging?

Retinoids can reduce the signs of fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen production. They can also stimulate the production of new blood vessels, which can improve the skin’s color. Additional anti-aging benefits include fading age spots and softening rough skin patches.
