Achieving A Youthful Look: Why Injectables Are Only Part of Our Holistic Approach to Antiaging

September 7, 2016

 

I love Botox and injectables for their prophylactic effect on wrinkles. When using fillers and injectables, it is important to use them in conjunction with laser and cosmeceutical products so that you help build your own collagen and avoid having one of those misporportioned faces we all too often see with aging celebrities that have had too much work done. 

 

As we age, achieving a naturally youthful look is a group effort. A big part of achieving this youthful look is to focus on rebuilding and maintain collagen production in your body. Seventy five percent of our skin's protein is made up of collagen. Collagen is an important building block of the skin that is responsible for providing the skin with elasticity, smoothness, and strength. We all start losing collagen beginning around age 25 at a rate of 1.5 and 2% a year.

 

By adding regular non-invasive laser treatments to your skin care regime, you can slow down collagen break down and keep your skin and body looking younger. The nice thing about lasers is that you will always be ahead of where you would have been on the collagen spectrum. When using lasers regularly, you will be able to diminish that lose to 0.5% to 1% a year. This slows down the whole aging process. Lasers also help to keep you skin clear if you suffer from hormone driven adult acne.

 

For younger people in their thirties, I recommend starting with some ClearLift treatments  a couple times a year and Cold Laser Stem Cell facials every 6-8 weeks for maintenance. When you start to hit your forties, I recommend adding in the N-Lite and Infini microneedling lasers for a more intense treatment.

 

 

A high-quality collagen supplement can also help replace natural collagen lost as part of the aging process and can help maintain your skin's elasticity and skin tone. We are excited to begin offering a collagen supplement to our clients that will help rebuild collagen in your body naturally and will intensify the effects of our laser and cosmeceutical treatments. Skinade is the number one beauty elixir in England and in large parts of Europe. Skinade helps rebuild collagen in your whole body, not just your face, and will intensify the effects of the laser. I have personally been using it for about a month and am already seeing amazing results.
