Make This the Year of Your Best Self
- Posted on: Jan 30 2019
That time of year has rolled around yet again, and it has millions of people making resolutions to eat better, walk more, talk more, and generally improve their sense of self. If you’re like many of us, the whole idea of making yet another resolution or buying yet another gym membership may feel more burdensome than exciting. Here’s the thing about making resolutions: we want to see results. For those New Year’s goals that revolve around bringing your natural beauty center-stage, we can help you see the results you want. Here are just a few ways to make this the year of your best self.
Many of the concerns that we hear in our office revolve around facial aging. We can’t escape this natural process, but we can minimize its effects, and it doesn’t always have to involve surgery. The choice between surgical or non-surgical comes down to a few points. First, what results do you want to achieve? For more severe laxity and atrophy issues, it’s true that a facelift, even a mini-lift, will accomplish more lift. It is also necessary to consider how long you’d like your results to last. Here again, surgical lifts and eyelid rejuvenation wins. However, what tops many patients’ list of priorities is to naturally refresh the face without downtime. In this instance, injectables like Botox and dermal fillers provide many months of improvement.
Facial rejuvenation can be achieved and supported using innovative energetic devices, as well. Treatments like microneedling with platelet-rich plasma instigate change from within by stimulating a cascade of new collagen and elastin. Radiofrequency treatments like ThermiTight deliver skin-tightening energy below the surface using a micro-invasive technique that requires minimal downtime, if any at all. ThermiTight can be performed on the face as well as other areas, including the abdomen and thighs.
When discussing facial rejuvenation, we must also discuss how to prolong the results of any surgical or non-surgical treatment. For younger looking skin, the key is to consistently use medical grade skincare products on properly exfoliated tissue. Absorbed daily, nutrient-rich ingredients encourage cells to behave like they did when they were young.
