What are the best treatments for aging skin?
There is a wide variety of effective treatments for aging skin. With that in mind, the best treatments for aging skin are typically determined on a patient-to-patient basis, as everyone has unique skincare needs and issues they would like to have addressed. Depending on the particular aging skin issues you are dealing with, some common and highly effective treatments for aging skin include the following:
- AquaGold Fine Touch injections
- Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin injections (neuromodulators)
- Chemical peels
- Dermal fillers, such as Sculptra Aesthetic, Juvederm, Radiesse, Belotero, or Vitrase
- Intense pulsed light (IPL) Photofacial rejuvenation
- Laser skin resurfacing
- Medical grade facials
How do you rejuvenate aging skin?
There are many ways to rejuvenate aging skin! Numerous skin rejuvenation treatments focus on increasing collagen and elastin production in particular treatment areas of the skin to provide more youthful-looking skin.
Collagen and elastin are fibrous proteins that naturally occur in your body and are essential to the structural integrity of every connective tissue in your body, including your muscles, bones, soft tissues, and skin! As such, a healthy amount of collagen and elastin in your skin enables it to be firm, smooth, and bright.
There are several different ways to boost collagen and elastin production. Since collagen and elastin are highly instrumental in the process of wound healing, many skin rejuvenation treatments inflict controlled injuries to the dermis layer of skin, which is below the epidermis, or surface layer of skin. Such controlled injuries can be delivered through radiofrequency (RF), intense pulsed light (IPL), or other mediums. Treatments like microdermabrasion or microneedling inflict slight and controlled injuries to the epidermis to trigger a healing response and influx of collagen and elastin.
Another way to trigger an influx of collagen and elastin to a particular treatment area is through dermal fillers, which cause mild inflammation in the treatment area to trigger a similar healing response.
In contrast, anti-aging treatments like Botox or Dysport injections do not trigger increased collagen and elastin production. Instead, they function as neuromodulators by disrupting nerve signals between the brain and nerve endings in the treatment area. In so doing, they temporarily prevent muscle contractions from occurring in the treatment area. This cessation of muscle contractions, caused by various facial expressions, provides your skin with the time it needs to relax and smoothen out wrinkles and fine lines.
What makes a face look older?
Our body produces less and less collagen and elastin as we age, resulting in less firm and smooth-looking skin. As such, with repeated muscle contractions due to squinting, smiling, frowning, and other facial expressions, the skin on our face loses its elastic quality provided from elastin to bounce back from such muscle contractions, resulting in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines at the sites of those muscle contractions. Moreover, with less collagen production, our skin loses much of its firmness and volume, leading to aging signs like skin laxity or hollow-looking cheeks. Other factors that can cause a face to look older include increased sun exposure without protection and lack of a regular skincare routine.
