anti-aging tipsEveryone starts to show signs of aging. Although there’s no anti-aging magic pill, many of us want to slow down the process, looking our best longer. Whether you want a bit of a touch up or some major “lifting” to get back some of the shape and volume you’ve lost, we have great ideas to help you look younger now and maintain a more youthful appearance for years to come.

Anti-aging solutions await you

Here are five nonsurgical anti-aging tips to help you look great!

1. Protect it.

Nothing ages and damages your skin faster than the sun. Protecting your skin is as simple as including sunscreen—with a minimum of 15 SPF—into your daily skin care regimen. And, while outside, reapply sunscreen every 60–90 minutes while outside. Remember to put your sunscreen on any exposed areas; this includes your ears and hands!

2. Plump it.

Keeping fullness in your lips and cheeks is an excellent way to maintain a more youthful face. We use fillers to plump the lips and restore fullness to the face. The goal is a natural look. Wow! Juvéderm® for your lips and Voluma® for your cheeks!

3. Chase away those wrinkles.

Nonsurgical, age-defying options help you look and feel good with little or no downtime. Consider fillers and injectables for a natural, fresh, smooth, and rested appearance. We use Botox®, Restalyne®, Juvéderm®, and Sculptra®.

4. Lose the fat.

CoolSculpting® is here! This is a terrific nonsurgical way to freeze away fat without surgery or downtown. Double chin? We have two nonsurgical options for you: CoolSculpting® and Kybella™. Come in for a consultation and see if one of these will provide the solution for you.

5. Put your fresh face forward.

Let us help you keep your fresh face forward. We are pleased to offer Skin Medica products. This product line has Growth Factors, Retinol, Antioxidants, Specialty Products, and Sun Protection. Combined, they help give you that fabulous look many other product lines promise but just don’t seem to deliver.
