Anti-Aging Doesn’t Have To Be Scary

October 28, 2021

Getting started with an anti-aging regimen may seem tricky, but it does not have to be with the right skincare and treatment plan. Save the scariness for the costumes, and take care of your skin so it is smooth and BOO-tiful regardless of the holiday.


The first step in an effective anti-aging regimen is developing a good skincare routine. Some staple anti-aging products are retinol, sunscreen, and products that contain vitamin C, peptides, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid. Retinol/Retinoids increase cell turnover, improving the complexion of the skin and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. Sunscreen is great for preventing visible aging from sun damage, and antioxidants are perfect for improving brightness in the skin, providing extra sun protection, and reducing pigmentation issues. 


Although good skincare is essential for anti-aging, aesthetic procedures can really correct and provide a more dramatic improvement in skin quality.. Botulinum toxin injections (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, and Juveau) relax muscles in the face to soften fine lines and wrinkles. It is helpful to start as a preventative measure so as to decrease ans prevent the depth of wrinkles and fine lines over time. Dermal fillers restore volume loss in the face that leads to deep folds. Fillers make up for lost volume that naturally occurs with aging, resulting in a more youthful appearance and facial contour. 

Facial laser treatments are another great option to achieve your best looking skin. Treatments like Halo and BBL work to reduce the appearance of sun damage while increasing the production of collagen. Lasers also address a variety of age-related skin concerns, such as wrinkles, sun spots, and skin tone.  These treatments help reven the skin tone and complexion while improving and preventing fine lines.

While the theme of Halloween is to be scary, anti-aging shouldn’t be. There are no tricks to our treatments, just great results!
