5 Ways To Look Younger!

So many beautiful people seem to be searching for eternal youth. The ability to look unaffected by the passage of time. Wrinkle free faces at 50. The body of a 60 year old that looks like that of a svelte twenty year old. 

Time is relentless. You get older every year. Your face and your body will age. But you can age beautifully. If you keep fit, exercise and watch your diet, your body can look years younger and you can win the war with time. 

It will get harder as the years advance, but with enough discipline and effort, you can keep your figure. There are quite a few options to consider when you want to appear younger than you really are.

1. Microdermabrasion

This is a special facial in which the doctor  or esthetician blasts tiny crystals onto your face to smooth your skin. You may need multiple treatments to get the look you desire, but it is very effective. Microdermabrasion will diminish fine lines and wrinkles and improve acne. Best of all, the treatment does not burn your skin like other facial procedures, so there is minimal redness and soreness after the treatment. Most people will go back to work after a microdermabrasion treatment. Click Here to Learn More

2.  IPL Laser Treatments

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) laser treatment is a nonsurgical cosmetic skin procedure used to reverse the signs of aging and correct skin irregularities, like stretch marks, birthmarks, and scars. This procedure is also sometimes referred to as a photofacial treatment or photorejuvenation treatment. Several sessions may be needed to achieve optimum results. IPL technology is non-ablative, which means that the surface of the skin is left undamaged, since the lasers repair the skin from the inside out. The majority of patients return to work or their usual daily activities immediately after the procedure. Click Here to Learn More

3. Medical Grade Skincare Products

Essential to maintaining your skin health are medical grade skin care products.  Medical grade skin care products are only available through a physician’s office. Why are ‘medical grade’ skin care products better for you than what you can get at the department store or drugstore? The ability of medical grade skin care products to produce such great results has to do with the products and ingredients ability to penetrate the top layer of skin. The medical grade products work at the dermis, or middle layer of the skin, where collagen and elastin are contained and the basal, or bottom layer of the skin, where new skin cells are produced. Over the counter products, however, work only on the epidermis, or top layer of skin, where we shed skin cells and the new skin cells, created in the basal layer, eventually show up. For true correction of skin care problems, treatment needs to be directed towards the deeper skin layers. Click Here to Learn More

4. Botox

Botulinum toxin is a protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria. It is injected under the skin by a licensed medical professional to temporarily paralyzes muscles in the face. A Botox injection lasts for about 4 to 6 months, and then the treatment must be re-administered.  Click Here to Learn More

5. Dermal  Fillers

Dermal fillers are injected into lines and wrinkles in the face and neck to “plump” them up, making them disappear. There are several different types of dermal fillers, including: collagen, which lasts 3 to 6 months; hyaluronic acid based fillers, which last up to a year; and calcium hydoxylapatite or poly-lactic acid based fillers, which can last up to 2 years or longer.
