Anti-aging is often made more complicated than it needs to be. As a result, many patients focus their efforts in too many places, leaving too little focus on the anti-aging efforts that matter the most. Today, we’re going to simplify things and identify the 3 pillars of anti-aging that you need to focus on for comprehensive and long-lasting skin health.
At-Home Skin Care Regimen
First and foremost, you need a good at-home skincare regimen. The right skincare routine can provide your skin with the protection, care and nutrients that it needs on a daily basis. Although in-office cosmetic treatments are effective for many reasons, nothing beats the daily nourishment that a skincare routine provides. Using the right skincare products at home is one of the best preventative techniques, as you can address the causes of aging before they even occur. Plus, skincare products can keep your skin healthy and young year-round, which will only improve the results you get from other treatments.
Microneedling is a powerful anti-aging treatment that stimulates collagen production in the body. Collagen is a protein that plays an essential role in maintaining skin health and volume, but our bodies produce less of it as we age. Microneedling can increase our natural collagen levels, which can rejuvenate the skin and even address cosmetic concerns like wrinkles, lines, acne scars and more. Furthermore, microneedling has the unique benefit of increasing the efficacy of topical products. After microneedling, your skin will be able to better absorb skincare products. This means that it is an excellent complement to an at-home skincare regimen.
Skincare products can help prevent and treat wrinkles, but for enhanced results, it’s best to include some injectables. These can be used as both preventative and anti-aging treatments. Injectables like Botox® can relax the muscles that cause wrinkles in the first place, helping you prevent them before they form. Dermal fillers can restore volume lost to the aging process, smoothing out lines and wrinkles that may have formed over the years. Combined, these injectable treatments are an essential part of any anti-aging strategy.
Another quality worth noting about injectables is that they produce near-instant results. While both skincare products and microneedling results develop gradually over time, you’ll notice results from your injectables within days of treatment. This makes injectables a perfect pairing with skincare products and microneedling, as you’ll achieve comprehensive results both immediately and in the months to come.
