Over time, your face can begin to show signs of age with wrinkles, lines, and folds. Many people turn to treatments and procedures to improve signs of aging once they’ve already occurred, however, many do not think to use these treatments to prevent signs of aging from occurring in the first place! Here are a few treatments that improve as well as prevent signs of aging.
Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten skin on the neck and face. During treatment, energy targets the foundation layer deep within the skin to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. As you age, your body begins to produce less and less collagen resulting in loose, sagging skin. With Ultherapy, you can improve already present signs of aging and fight new signs from showing! Common target areas include the neck, brow, and under the chin.
Collagen-Induction Therapy/ MIcroneedling
Collagen-Induction Therapy, otherwise known as Miscroneedling, uses tiny needles to create micropunctures in the skin that stimulate the natural healing process. This healing process promotes new collagen growth and adds structure to the skin. With this improved structure, you can prevent future wrinkles and lines from developing. Common problems that Collagen-Induction Therapy can address include fine lines on the face, rough texture, skin laxity, and scarring.
Many facial fillers like Juvederm and Restylane use a hyaluronic acid formula to instantly add volume to the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, provides moisture and softness, and adds volume. Because of this formula, facial fillers work to prevent future signs of aging with improved skin quality. During treatment with facial fillers, a thin needle is used to place the formula beneath the skin. If you’re worried about developing lines around the mouth, between the nose and mouth, and in the jaw area, you can benefit from facial fillers!
Using these treatments can improve existing signs of aging and prevent future ones, saving you from needing a surgical procedure like a facelift. Repeated use of preventative facial treatments can keep your skin looking fresh and youthful. To start your preventative treatment today, contact Northwest Dermatology Group.
