5 Ways to Age Gracefully

We all get older, but that doesn’t mean you have to look old. Here are five ways to help you age gracefully:

1. Hydrate!

It’s important to hydrate both inside and out. This means use an appropriate moisturizer for your skin type and remember to drink lots of water. Also, eating lots of healthy fruits and vegetables is a great way to increase your water intake. Another excellent way to hydrate your skin is by getting a HydraFacial treatment. This three-step service exfoliates, extracts, and hydrates in one quick treatment. It removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while delivering your skin with hydrating serums. Even the most sensitive skin easily tolerates HydraFacial.

2. Lose those freckles 

Nothing says you’re getting older than development of freckles. Lasers are the most effective treatments, and we’re pleased to offer Cutera Limelight Treatment to help fade them. 

3. Wrinkles be gone!

Many of my patients benefit from Botox injections to reduce the wrinkles caused by facial movement. As a neuromodulator, it smooths the skin by temporarily relaxing the muscles. Most often, I inject Botox around and between the eyes and around the forehead to reduce moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet. 

4. When you need more

We recommend Microneedling when you need a bit more. This is a minimally invasive procedure that helps generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin, as well as reduce the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. And, when we add PRP (platelet rich plasma) to microneedling, your body regenerates more robustly giving you an even more effective outcome.

5. Wear sunscreen every day

The sun damages the skin and creates free radicals, promoting aging as well as skin cancer. You’ve heard me say this before, and it’s always worth repeating: Sunscreen is for everyday—rain, sun, clouds, and everything in between. Those dangerous UV rays are out there just waiting to attack your skin. Protect yourself with a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least 30 SPF.

And even more options

Other treatment options include Microdermabrasion to exfoliate your skin’s top layer and remove the dull dry skin cells, and Chemical Peels to improve your skin’s look and feel.
