Sagging or dry skin, a few fine lines, visible wrinkles in the face—those could already be signs of aging skin. As you age, your skin becomes less supple and elastic, creating wrinkles, creases, and lines. Sun exposure can also make the skin’s aging process faster.
While most anti-aging products are geared towards women and men by the time they hit their 40s, taking care of your skin now is the best possible time—even if you’re in your 20s.
There are several facial products that you can apply at home that target your anti-aging concerns, but if your face is already showing signs of aging, turn to the expert procedures, like Thermage and Botox.
Botox is perhaps the most popular procedure that targets fine lines and wrinkles. It relaxes the muscles, creating a smoother complexion. Depending on the patient, Botox will last around 3 months to half a year.
A radio-frequency treatment, Thermage is a gentle, non-invasive procedure that stimulates the area’s production of collagen, lifting the skin around the eye, lessening the appearance of eye bags and the signs of laugh lines.
Dr. Vicki Belo says that this treatment can be done for patients 30 years old and above. “You lose one percent of collagen for every year you’re alive. When you’re born, you have 100 percent collagen. When you’re 32, that means you have 32 percent less collagen. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and Ulthera is one of the best ways to do it.”
Ulthera also encourages the production of collagen in the area, tightening the skin, especially around the jaw line, neck, or your face.
