Beauty and physical attractiveness are desirable and admirable characteristics in our societies. Aging is an integral part of life, and we need to embrace and celebrate it. But it is not easy to witness the loss of the youthfulness in our skin. While we may be at peace with our age, keeping intact our physical characteristics are everyone’s ultimate desire.
From a cosmetic point of view, it is no longer an unattainable dream. Indeed, aesthetic medicine has made immense progress and is today able to reverse most visible signs of aging.
One of the worse enemies of our skin is sun exposure. Sun causes the degradation of collagen and elastin in the skin and its damaging effect becomes more clear with age. A sun damaged skin is a skin that sags and has a deflated appearance. Wrinkles are made worse because of long-term sun exposure. To counteract the devastating effects of sun damage, skin care scientists have designed skin tightening and resurfacing procedures with energy-based devices. These procedures heat up collagen which contracts and tighten the skin. At Defy Nature in New London, CT, we offer these exact treatments. Laser skin treatments are non-invasive. They need no incisions, cause no bleeding or bruising, and need no downtime. Our trained experts use radio frequency technology, which has proven to be safe for patients of all skin types and shades.
BOTOX® cosmetic (a neurotoxin) is one of the treatments to fight aging. It is a nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment. BOTOX® can reduce moderate to severe wrinkles in people 18 to 65 years of age. Our experts administer very low doses of BOTOX® cosmetic via a few tiny injections into the muscles that cause stubborn lines. The treatment is usually done in about 10 minutes, and patients often need no downtime. Within days, our patients may see an improvement that can last up to 4 months.
Finally, there are also options with HA (hyaluronic acid) and collagen-based fillers. These fillers include Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, and Bellafill. Collagen-based fillers are valuable tools in the aesthetic industry. With time, these treatments improve facial contours, reduce wrinkles and stall the tell-tale signs of the aging face.
