A new year brings the promise of new adventures and experiences in the days ahead. However, some people want to take a step back into the past and look younger than their actual age. Thanks to medical spa treatments, it is possible to start 2017 by turning back the clock on your appearance. Here are three popular ways to begin the year by looking the way you did in the past:
- Botox relaxes the muscles in the forehead to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around your eyes as well as on your forehead. It also helps to get rid of any fine lines located on the forehead. While Botox provides a smoother appearance to your face, the results only last 3-6 months and the treatment will need to be repeated on a regular basis in order to maintain them.
- Fillers do exactly what their name implies – They fill-in wrinkles and fine lines on the face as well as add volume to the lips. Dermal fillers are classified based on the material they are made from and they provide different results in the various areas of the face. Depending on the amount and type of filler administered, the results can last for 6 months to 2 years. While there are many choices when it comes to having fillers, some of the most popular choices include Juvederm, Restylane and Radiesse.
- Microdermabrasion is a procedure that exfoliates the skin before the removal of a layer of dead and dry skin cells. The treatment is performed through the use of a diamond tip or small crystals sprayed on the skin, In turn, the microdermabrasion process makes the skin look younger by eliminating uneven pigmentation, fine lines, brown spots, age spots and dull looking skin. In general, microdermabrasion treatments need to be repeated every 2 or 3 months to maintain the results.
Of course, you can always choose to have surgery to address aging skin that looks older or has lost volume. While procedures such as a facelift, eyelid surgery and a neck lift provide longer lasting results, both the recovery time and the total cost of the surgery are greater than any of the options listed above. Consult with your doctor before making a decision about which treatment to undergo for the younger look you desire. Your doctor will be able to give you a number of options to help you achieve a younger facial appearance.
