Anti-Aging Med Spa Treatment Options for Older Adults
For many people, the most significant signs of aging begin to show up as they reach their late 40s, 50s and 60s. Whether in the forehead, eyes, neck or some other skin area, these signs can range from mild to significant depending on several factors, including your skin’s health throughout your life.
At the offices of Steven Jepson MD, we’re proud to offer a wide range of medical spa products and services to assist with the signs of aging, from Botox and Juvederm injections to laser treatments and several other solutions. Let’s take a look at a few of the more common signs of aging that often show up in your older adult years, plus the kinds of treatments in our med spa that work the best for these symptoms.
Pronounced Lines and Wrinkles
Lines and wrinkles are some of the most common signs of aging, and also some of the most worrisome for people when they first begin to show up. No one likes seeing crow’s feet or some other kind of permanent facial line for the first time, as this is one of the more prominent signs of aging out there.
Luckily, there are several neurotoxins that are excellent for treating wrinkles or lines on the face, starting with Botox. These are FDA-approved products that are safe for use and will not lead to any major downtime or side effects. They address your dynamic wrinkles (caused by laughing, smiling and squinting over the years)
Dry, Cracked Skin
Now, it’s important to note that not every sign of aging in the skin necessarily requires an injectable or laser treatment. For issues like dry and cracked skin, which take place in many aging adults as the skin begins to lose moisture, proper skincare products often are the solution to the issue. We offer several medical-grade skincare products for anti-aging, with quality ingredients that do everything from improving your skin tone to moisturizing and fighting other causes of aging.
These are issues generally caused by the skin’s loss of collagen with age, which causes it to lose support and volume. Some of the best treatments for these concerns are laser treatments, which help tighten and tone the skin by stimulating healthy collagen growth within the skin’s layers. They also help with texture and may even fight against skin discoloration.
Volume Loss, Sinking or Hollow Skin
Finally, another excellent possible use of Dermal fillers is to fill in deflated, sinking or hollow areas of the face. This brings in volume and makes the face look younger and more attractive.
