Everyone wants to look their best, regardless of their age. But, the unfortunate truth is that there is no such thing as eternal life and fountain of youth. That said, age catches up with the best of us, which unavoidably results in wrinkles, fine lines, and saggy skin. Going under the knife is always an option, but why should you do that in 2019 to preserve your youthful appearance when there are plenty of other effective anti-aging treatments that don’t involve surgery?
Botox is still one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedures available today that effectively minimizes the signs of aging. Essentially, Botox is injected into the muscle directly. It may not be a permanent solution but the restriction of muscles efficiently softens and straightens the lines of the skin for 3-4 months.
2. Chemical peel
Chemical peels usually utilize the power of one or more acids in order to smooth out the skin’s surface and fade out spots. Lactic, glycolic, salicylic and/or alpha hydroxy acid are the common acids used for chemical peels. In general, chemical peels are popular precisely because they are so effective with various skin imperfections, acne scarring and sun damage included.
3. Soft tissue filler
Soft tissue fillers, also known as injectables, literally involve injectable treatments that instantly smooth out the surface area where they’ve been injected in. The common areas include smile and frown lines. There are a few different options when it comes to injectables, and you should definitely discuss the options with your doctor in order to choose the most effective solution for you personally.
4. Cool lifting
Utilizing CO2 is the success ingredient when it comes to the cool lifting cosmetic procedure. Basically, the cool lift gun pushes the concentrated CO2 gas into the skin but at low temperature. This helps the active ingredients sink into the skin faster and more efficiently. In the end, even just one session can provide visible results for a plumper, more hydrated and even skin.
5. Thread Lift
A thread lift is the newer and better version of the traditional facelift. What’s more, it’s even less invasive compared to the original. Essentially, self-dissolving threads are injected into the skin around the hairline, which then tightens the skin by pulling it backward. One can enjoy the benefits of this treatment for 3-5 years.
6. Air ulthermage
You are all aware of laser treatments’ popularity. Well, air ulthermage is an anti-aging treatment that combines 3 different laser procedures – Ulthera Quattro, air jet treatment and Thermage CPT. The entire treatment is rather quick and provides immediate results thanks to the combo of beneficial air shots that this technique delivers into the patient’s skin.
This is a very interesting anti-aging and rejuvenating technique that’s been made popular thanks to the fact that it requires almost no downtime yet it delivers great results when it comes to saggy skin around the chin. Basically, a needle-like apparatus is inserted into the chin area that melts the fat thanks to the emitting lasers. This isn’t only effective for getting rid of saggy skin associated with aging, but also for double chin in overweight patients.
8. Hand Lift
Hands can tell more about a person’s age than their face. Precisely because of that, hand lifts are getting more and more popular. Actually, they’re right up there with a facelift on the trend train. In general, hand lifts usually combine chemical peels and injectables, especially mixed for the patient in particular. The chemical peels help fade away the dark spots, while the injectables soften and tighten the skin on your hands, which is usually very rough, saggy and dry before the treatment.
It’s important that you do whatever you can to keep your youthful look for longer. That said, a balanced diet, plenty of water intake on a daily basis, regular exercise and a well-established skincare routine are absolute musts. Still, as mentioned, age will come no matter what. But why not make it wait as much as possible? Healthy habits combined with carefully selected anti-aging cosmetic treatments that don’t require you to go under the knife may allow you to look 10 or even 20 years younger! The best results will need a bit of your effort. Even if you don’t practice the mentioned healthy habits, you’ll be able to notice the treatment’s results, but, if you do practice them, the results will last a lot longer.
