You may have noticed laugh lines that don’t go away anymore once you stop laughing. You may have noticed furrow lines between your eyes or over your forehead even when you aren’t frowning or worried. You may have noticed that your skin texture just isn’t the same after years of too much sun.
For all of us as we grow older, there is a point where a good night’s sleep and skin creams bought in the drugstore or from an infomercial are not sufficient to keep us looking as young and refreshed as we would like. Many people turn to me for help in turning back the clock to improve their appearance. Some want to just feel better about themselves, while others want to stay more competitive in a workplace that is increasingly youth-oriented.
Many people are turned off by the concept of facelifts and plastic surgery, as they should be because of the potential dangers such procedures bring. Others see the widening array of minimally-invasive treatments that are now socially acceptable and financially accessible. While the number of facelifts in the US fell 23% last year, Botox injections increased 3.8% to 2.6 million. My use of Botox at Maine Laser Skin Care is up at least 10% from this time last year.
Dermal fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm and Radiesse can be used to plump lips, fill smile lines and decrease the volume loss of collagen that follows longterm skin damage and the aging process. Many aesthetic specialists feel that injections of fillers can replace the collagen loss and delay the need for considering facelifts.
Last but not least, laser treatments, especially the use of Fraxel, can improve the superficial appearance of skin color and tone while also stimulating collagen production. Increasing collagen will smooth the skin from the inside out while also improving the appearance of scars, especially acne scars.
