It doesn’t surprise me that the latest news shows Millennials getting anti-aging treatments for preventative reasons. Getting out in front of aging is a smart thing to do. But what if you’re more like a Generation X or even a (gasp!) Baby Boomer? It’s not too late to have some anti-aging ‘tweaks’ that will help you look your best without going under the knife.
Here are 4 treatments that are perfect for slowing down the aging process.
Sculptra Aesthetic. This fabulous collagen producing injectable gets overshadowed by HA’s all too often and that’s a shame. It works by stimulating collagen growth and continues to work for up to 2+ years! It is recommended that you get one kit per decade and then follow-up treatments thereafter. However, you can have just one vial (half a dose) injected so that treatments are more affordable. You will still need the recommended amount, but even one vial every other month of this magical treatment is better than nothing!
PDO Threads. The question with this treatment isn’t what is this good for but rather what isn’t it good for? From droopy jowls to saggy butts – PDO Thread treatments are a ‘quick fix’, safe to use, require no real downtime and last anywhere from 2-3 years! Treatments can be repeated at any time to achieve a better ‘lift’ or as the threads are absorbed.
Dermal fillers and neuromodulators injected at regular intervals and in lesser amounts. Instead of having multiple syringes of filler and the maximum units of Botox/Dysport/Xeomin at one time, have smaller amounts done every 3/4 months. You will gradually improve expression lines and stimulate collagen growth without looking like a cast member of Housewives of Crazyville! Plus, you won’t be paying out a boatload in one visit.
Laser treatments. You don’t have to get the latest, greatest laser treatment out there (newer usually equals more expensive), but rather one that stimulates collagen and improves the texture of the skin. Look for erbium or radio frequency-type lasers and avoid CO2 (they hurt like a mother!) and commit yourself to 4 a year. In 12 months you’ll look mar-velous darling!
Until next time….
