Although it is an inevitable and natural process, aging is often looked upon with anxiety and trepidation. This is due primarily to the negative aesthetic developments associated with growing older, which are collectively referred to as the “visible signs of aging.” The rate at which these visible signs begin, and progress, is influenced by a number of factors including genetics, lifestyle choices, sun damage, and exposure to environmental pollutants.
It hasn’t always been the case, but today there are many alternatives to help us gracefully navigate the different phases of aging. We know so much more about diet and exercise to maintain youthful vitality and appearances. We also have science to thank for developing cosmetic products and procedures. Today, we have the ability to address cosmetic problems and preserve youthful facial appearance while accommodating individual time constraints as well as budgetary restrictions.
With the many choices we have for preserving and enhancing our youthful appearance, the importance of education in this regard cannot be emphasized enough. With this in mind, during the next few months I will present a comprehensive overview of the aesthetic changes that take place during each phase of life from the 20’s to the 60’s and beyond. Corrective and preventive counter measures will be shared that can help you look your best at any age and are designed to:
- Target and correct any current visible signs of aging (i.e. dry skin, wrinkles, hollow facial contours, fine lines, pigmentation issues, textural irregularities)
- Preserve and accentuate your natural facial beauty
- Prevent and/or delay the development of future signs of aging
Although there are many common aesthetic concerns within the same age grouping, no two people experience the aging process in exactly the same way. This is why I take the time to meticulously customize treatment plans for my patients, tailoring to address specific needs and unique anatomy. If you would like to learn more about how non-invasive treatments and/or cosmetic surgery procedures can help you look your best at any age, feel free to call my office at 310.247.9090.
