Every year that goes by, skin changes occur that can make you look and feel older than your years. Fortunately, you do not have to dread looking in the mirror when you know the tricks to put your best face forward. This year, make a commitment to practice some self-care by using these strategies to create a more youthful appearance.
It seems almost too simple, but water truly is the fountain of youth. When your skin is hydrated, it appears plumper and those tiny lines and wrinkles begin to fade. Hydration also helps to prevent further aging of your skin by flushing out toxins, so try to drink water throughout the day. For an added burst of skin healing antioxidants, add some fruit to your water and allow it to sit for a few minutes until it infuses with flavor. In addition to drinking water, remember to avoid alcoholic beverages when possible, since they can have a dehydrating effect.
Experience a Laser Treatment
Sometimes, staying hydrated is just not enough to look younger. If you have multiple wrinkles on different areas of your skin, then a laser treatment will provide skin-enhancing benefits. During a laser treatment, short pulses of a micro-fine laser penetrate to the deeper layers of your skin to stimulate collagen production and promote healing. This type of treatment is usually accomplished in a short office visit, and you will see the results within days. Smoother, softer skin with fewer lines and wrinkles is what you can expect after a single laser treatment, and your skin will continue to improve over the next several weeks*.
Rejuvenate with Juvederm
Injectables are one of the fastest ways to see results in your skin, and Juvederm provides support to your skin from the inside out. During a Juvederm treatment, a hyaluronic acid filler is injected into the deeper tissues of your skin to help add volume where it has been lost due to aging. Shortly after the treatment, you will notice that the contours of your face appear fuller and rounder while the fine lines have disappeared.
This year, you deserve to feel and look your best. As you begin to take charge of your appearance, remember that a smile is one of the simplest ways to take years off of your face. Remember, that with the combination of self-care and professional treatment, you will see results, and that is something to smile about!
