3 Nonsurgical Solutions to Aging Gracefully

cosmetic-surgeon-st-petersburgWhen it comes to getting older, some of us are able to face it with our heads held high while others of us fight it tooth and nail. I think the best approach lands somewhere in the middle of those two extremes, and a trip to the med spa can definitely deliver the right solutions to find that balance.

1. Facials

Med spas frequently offer a number of facials for patients. While the outsider may assume that these are just beauty treatments, the right facial can actually improve skin health, minimize the early signs of aging and ensure that your skin cells are getting all the nourishment they need to combat the aging process more effectively.

2. Resurfacing Treatments

Offering correction at a slightly more intense level up from facials, a number of resurfacing options in different strengths can help resolve more visible signs of aging. Ranging from chemical peels to microdermabrasion and laser resurfacing, these treatments slough away sun-damaged skin, repair uneven skin tone and can even smooth away wrinkles and minor facial scarring.

3. Injectables

BOTOX® Cosmetic and injectable fillers are two of the most effective options available to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® is ideal for eliminating crow’s feet and frown lines, while dermal fillers are perfect for softening the nasolabial folds.

With the right combination of nonsurgical cosmetic procedures, you can definitely gain greater control over the effects that aging has on your appearance. While nothing can stop the aging process entirely, I always think the most optimistic attitude is to simply face age with good humor and grace…and a good cosmetic surgeon at your side can’t hurt either.
