Slowing Down the Signs of Time
To most Americans, aging is one of those things that has positives and negatives. Positives may include things like having the confidence to speak your mind and not having to live with all the drama that comes with youth. Negatives include the ever-deepening lines and wrinkles that seemingly come out of nowhere and the fact that those magnified mirrors are part wonder (because of our declining eyesight) and part horror (because of the things it lets us see).
Slowing down the signs of time can mean different things to different people, which makes having options important. At Amani MedSpa, we appreciate the differences in our patients and therefore offer a variety of treatment options that can slow the signs of time in both men and women. Here are a few of the most common concerns people have related to aging in our Valrico, FL office.
Lines and Wrinkles
Unless you have been living in Antartica for the past decade, you’ve surely heard about injectables like Botox and Dysport as well as dermal fillers such as Restylane. Each address different concerns. Dermal fillers add volume back into the face, smoothing wrinkles, plumping lips and adding volume to the cheeks. Botox and Dysport temporarily minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles by blocking the nerves signals to the muscles. Sculptra is another excellent option, providing gradual and natural-looking results. It works by stimulating the production of collagen in the body, which increases the volume and thickness of the skin, smoothing lines and wrinkles and can last up to two years. More information on injectables and dermal fillers can be found here.
Do you know what your decolletage is? Did you know you have one? Decolletage is a french term referring to the chest, shoulders, and neck of a woman. Its location and the popularity of low necklines make it an easy target for sun damage, which shows up years later as wrinkles, redness, age spots, melasma and brown patches. eMatrix Sublative skin resurfacing, Neo by Aerolase as well as BTL Exilis Ultra are excellent treatments to consider. eMatrix uses radiofrequency energy to reach deep into the dermal layer to supercharge healing and boost collagen production. Neo by Aerolase is another great treatment for all skin types. This laser treatment rebuilds collagen, tightens the skin and addresses problem areas such as pigmented spots and melasma. More information on decolletage rejuvenation can be found here.
For many women, life can create changes in feminine health. Some of those changes may include vaginal relaxation, urinary incontinence, vulvar and vaginal atrophy, and dryness. CO2RE Intima is an-office, non-surgical treatment that can restore vaginal tone, flexibility, dryness and shape in about 15 minutes. More information on CO2RE Intima can be found here.
