Let’s face it – we all age and if you live in New York, you know that the aging process hits us a little quicker than the average person. Whether it be a demanding job, long hours, stressing over rent, roommates, or the landlord, or a few too many nights out hitting the after hours clubs in Brooklyn, New Yorkers are no stranger to circles under the eyes and a speedier aging process related to the above mentioned factors.
Some major signs of aging include loss of facial fat and volume under the eyes and in the cheeks, fine lines, wrinkles, and loose, sagging, and crepey skin. Fortunately, due to medical advances in cosmetic and dermatologic medicine, there are now several minimally invasive treatments that will help reduce, prevent, and eliminate these signs of aging without forcing anyone to go under the knife. What’s even better, is that there are numerous medical spas in New York that offer these minimally invasive treatments, which gives you plenty of places to choose from. One of the most common signs of aging, that can occur even at a younger age, is the appearance of under eye circles. One way to address these dark circles under the eyes is to fill in the hollow area with a dermal filler. Due to popular demand in recent years, under eye filler in NYC isn’t hard to come by and can be found at almost any medical spa, making it easy to eliminate dark circles under your eyes. Aside from your under eyes, there are a few other areas of your face that may be making you look older than you really are. Here are a few simple treatments to knock a few years off of your face.
Dermal fillers can be used in more areas than just under the eyes. For example, you can get Juvederm dermal filler under your eyes, in your cheeks, your nasolabial folds, as well as other areas of the face such as your lips, jaw, and nose to enhance them. Dermal fillers are often used for liquid facelifts and can make you appear more youthful without having to undergo the downsides of a surgical procedure. Dermal fillers are even sometimes used in areas outside of the face, including the neck and hands to rejuvenate their appearance.
Botox is a minimally invasive injectable treatment that works by relaxing the muscle in which it is injected, in turn resulting in a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles in that area. Because Botox restricts muscle contractions in the treatment area, it can also be used as a preventative measure to avoid the muscle contractions that lead to wrinkle formation over time. Many people also get Botox injections in the masseters to slim down their jawlines as the muscles are relaxed and decrease in size with the injection.
Fraxel laser is a medical skin tightening treatment that targets the superficial layers of the skin to treat sun damage, pigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles. It can also be used to reduce the appearance of acne scars and create an overall more rejuvenated skin. If you want to go for this treatment, just be sure not to get too much sun exposure 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after the treatment to avoid any adverse side effects.
Secret RF is a medical grade skin tightening treatment that targets deeper layers of the skin using microneedling and radiofrequency energy to cause controlled damage to the SMAS layer of the skin, causing the production of collagen and elastin, which in turn tightens your skin creating a more youthful and smoother skin appearance. Secret RF is also used for acne scarring and is often combined with Fraxel laser.
Aquagold is a form of microneedling that simultaneously injects a custom solution made up of vitamins, peptides, neurotoxin (Botox), and hyaluronic acids into the skin, which results in more hydrated and refreshed skin. The major component of this treatment is that it is supposed to reduce the size of your pores due to the Botox, which will not only make you look more refreshed, but younger!
Overall all of these treatments can be used on people of all ages. Just because you are only 22 doesn’t mean you will not benefit from any of these treatments. In fact, because of its preventative qualities, many people in New York actually start getting Botox in their early twenties as it has grown so much in popularity. Taking preventative measures are a great way to generally slow down the aging process, taking years off your face in the long run. Just be sure to consult with a licensed medical spa to make sure that the treatment you are interested in is right for you!
