Should I Start Anti-Aging Treatments This Year?

When we’re young, we all think the wrinkles of time won’t affect us until we’re much, much older. And then it happens – you spot your first set of wrinkles that seemed to appear overnight and go into straight panic mode over how to take better care of your skin to retain that baby face.

But knowing where to start with at-home skin care regimens and how often you should get a professional treatment can be tough to navigate, so we’re here to help!

Preventing Wrinkles From Home

When it comes to anti-aging products, it’s never too early to start investing in your skin. Using the right type of product for your skin type is vital so you don’t end up with results like clogged pores, and breakouts. If you’re looking to slow the aging process, taking proper care of your skin at home is the first recommended route to prevent aging.

At Night – Using an anti-aging product before bed that contains Retinol, which helps promote collagen, decrease pore size, and sheds pore-clogging dead skin that causes adult acne.

In The Morning – Apply a daily moisturizer before makeup that contains both sunscreen and antioxidants to create a shield on your skin against harmful UV rays and bacteria.

Using An Eye Cream – By the time you reach your 30’s you should be using an anti-wrinkle eye cream to promote collagen on the sensitive eye skin.

Always Remove Your Makeup – Whether it’s after a workout, or at the end of your day, washing our skin removes makeup, dirt, bacteria and the salts from your sweat.

Sunscreen – Always apply a daily SPF of at least 30, not just to your face, but to your neck, hands and any other body parts that will be exposed to the suns rays. Younger looking skin starts with protecting it from the sun.

Moisturize Your Lips – Keep your lips moisturized by using a lip balm with an SPF of at least 15, and reapplying when you’re out in the sun.

When To Start Botox

It’s “rarely too early” to start conservative Botox or filler treatments. Acting early on fine lines and wrinkles can make a big difference because lines are due to repetitive muscle movements and folding of the skin.

Young adults can benefit from preventative cosmetic injections because:

  1. It’s easier to prevent wrinkles from forming than it is to treat existing wrinkles later in life.
  2. Early and repetitive Botox use helps train your facial muscles responsible for wrinkles so that frown lines are less likely even without active treatment
  3. Treatments effectively treat fine lines, especially on the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes.

Is Ultherapy Skin Tightening Right For Me?

If you’re tired of loose skin, non-surgical skin tightening may allow for similar results to a facelift without scalpels or surgery. Ultherapy offers gentle tightening through the power of ultrasound and is able to effectively:

  • Lift Skin on the neck

Treatment has no downtime, and in many cases, only one treatment session is required to see results.
