As much as we wish it weren’t true, there’s no magic way to prevent getting older. Aging is just a natural part of life and embracing the good things that come with it — like growing families, more knowledge, and other experiences — can make reality more exciting. Many of the clients that I work with are frustrated by the physical changes that come with passing time. Older New Yorkers are more likely to experience wrinkles, sun damage, and other concerns than their younger counterparts. The good news is that some signs of aging can be treated or even delayed through preventative care. Here are a few examples, including some of the more popular trends for 2019.
Custom Face Care
Making sure that your skin is treated regularly with the right nutrients and chemicals can play a major part in warding off signs of aging. It’s important that you apply sunscreen on a daily basis, including multiple times if you are outside often or if your face is wet from sweat for water. You should also make time to remove makeup and other environmental toxins that are on your face each evening. Choose a cleanser that is gentle on your skin but removes damaging products so they don’t have a chance to seep into your skin as you sleep. Finally, you can apply topical creams and lotions to slow down the development of wrinkles and keep your skin smooth and free from discoloration. I’m proud to offer my clients a range of skincare products that treat specific needs, and I would be happy to customize a personalized system and routine for you based on your concerns.
There’s a reason Botox remains one of the most popular non-surgical procedures in the country. After just a few injections, clients leave the clinic feeling more confident — and their faces appear fresher and younger than when they first walk in the door. These small changes help delay the need for more dramatic lifts and tucks that come with advanced aging, and patients are receiving injections in their 20s, 30s, and 40s instead of playing catch-up down the line. Even better? Treatments are quick. You can be in and out of the office over your lunch break or ready for a night out on the town with no downtime or recovery.
CoolSculpting is an innovative, nonsurgical treatment for targeted fat removal. It uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat, and it remains the only nonsurgical fat reduction method approved by the FDA. With regular treatments, stubborn deposits can be reduced and eliminated, preventing a need for more intensive liposuction suction or tummy tucks later in life as fat builds up and becomes a larger source of discomfort.
