The Guide to Anti-Aging

No needles or knives required.



When we see fine lines and wrinkles, it’s not uncommon—after a rush of panic—to consider the dreaded ‘B’ word: Botox. Most of us have heard of, or are familiar with, plastic surgery, Botox, and dermal fillers. Luckily, there are a variety of other non-invasive treatments and procedures that can aid in maintaining and restoring a more youthful appearance. It is important to remember that at the core of these anti-aging treatments, you’re trying to cleanse your skin of impurities. By deeply cleansing your face on a regular basis, you eliminate the risk of stripping away natural oils which protect you from oxidants and harmful outside triggers. At a very basic level, you could start getting regular facials to protect your skin. However, there are more advanced treatments that you can add onto your facials to achieve a more youthful look. 


Doctor’s Orders

Dr. Adam Mamelak, Sanova Dermatology 

“The two most cost-effective things a patient can do is sunscreen and retinoids. Up to 90 percent of the changes we see on the skin that we refer to as ‘aging’ can be directly attributed to overexposure to the sun and ultraviolet light. By far, dermatologists agree that sunscreen is the number one anti-aging product you can use for your skin.”

Gina Jones, Body Tonic Med Spa

“Using products with active ingredients that work in overturning skin cells and stimulating collagen is the first start to slowing the aging process.”

Jeffrie Ann Chambers, Jeffrie Ann Chambers Skin Care

“So much of [aging skin] has to do with lifestyle. If an older woman is exercising regularly, eating clean food, drinking good water, and taking general good care of herself, she is going to get a better result [with these treatments].”

Wedad Jaber, Kalologie 360 Spa 

“Eating healthy and staying hydrated plays a huge role in your skin's health. Often times when we talk about anti-aging, we only address the exterior or “what we can see” rather than focusing on how diet and lifestyle changes affect our skin.”


DermaSweep

What it is

DermaSweep is a controlled bristle tip that gently exfoliates the top layer of skin.

How it works

The bristles increase circulation to boost oxygen, lymphatic drainage, and delivery of essential skin nutrients.

Results

Your face will be more radiant, firm, toned, and have fewer lines and wrinkles.


Medical Grade Chemical Peels

What it is

Medical-grade chemical peels are chemical solutions applied to the skin that cause it to exfoliate and eventually peel off.

How it works

As we age, our cell-turnover process slows down significantly. These peels remove dead skin cells and promote cell-turnover.

Results

This cell-turnover causes new, healthy cells to resurface giving you a soft, smooth glow.


IPL

What it is

Intense Pulse Light is a technology that uses a high-powered controlled flashgun to deliver broad-spectrum pulses of light.

How it works

IPL lasers specifically target pigment abnormalities in the skin and eliminate them over time. IPL draws out the sun damaged areas (sunspots, dark freckling and age spots, and broken blood vessels) and sheds them off within days of treatment. 

Results

IPL rids your skin of current sun damaged areas. The results of IPL are typically long-lasting if the patient completes their short series and uses sun-protection afterwards.


Microcurrent Facial Rejuvenation 

What it is

Microcurrent is low levels of electricity that mirror the body's own natural electrical currents. These wavelengths stimulate ATP and trigger chemical reactions at a cellular level.

How it works

The electricity enhances the production of natural collagen and elastin in your face and creates volume. The goal of microcurrent is to firm and tighten the skin.

Results

Microcurrent penetrates the skin at different levels and depending on the strength of the current, it can positively impact your facial muscles, tissue, and the surface of your skin. It results in a more youthful, contoured look. For older clientele (50 and above) a series of 8 to 10 treatments is recommended, coming in on a weekly basis. Younger clients can have microcurrent treatment for preventative measures to avoid fine lines and wrinkles. 

Fraxel Lasers

What it is

Fraxel laser treatments are light pulses that effectively change the texture of skin. 

How it works

Fraxel Lasers rely on light pulses to erase unwanted sun damage, fine lines, surgical scars, and acne scars.

Results

Fraxel Lasers help restore skin to it’s original, undamaged state. They generate a smoother, younger looking face.


Retinoids 

What it is

Retinoids are derivatives of vitamin A and have been clinically proven to provide a variety of anti aging benefits.

How it works

They promote surface skin cells to turn over rapidly, generating new cell growth underneath.

Results

Retinoids build collagen in the skin, improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles,  improve tone and texture, shrink pores, and reduce blemishes.
