Aging Treatment Options: Are Any Right for You?
In the battle to prevent and repair
the growing signs of aging on their skin, many men and women will
try anything to stop the hands of time. With new medical innovations,
those same men and women will spend millions of dollars trying to
find that sure-fire solution to looking younger. Sometimes eating
the right anti-inflammatory foods, which help prevent premature
aging, isn’t fast enough; sometimes people want an anti aging
treatment that will provide them with a quick fix.
An anti aging treatment can sometimes be painful, expensive, inconvenient
and ineffective; still the thought of a quick-fix is a huge lure.
These are a few of the most popular anti-aging treatment options
Still, if you don’t want to go to
certain extremes, stick to a diet filled with antioxidant foods.
Tomatoes, berries, potatoes, fish, milk and other dairy foods will
slowly but surely provide you with an effective anti aging treatment.
- Botox—this anti aging
treatment was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
in 2002 for the treatment of moderate and severe frown lines
and brow lines for those ages 18 to 65. It has been utilized
for more than 17 years for various medical conditions. A physician
will administer the Botox solution through tiny injections on
the muscles responsible for frowning, etc. Botox prevents the
muscles from contracting when a person makes a certain expression
and this prevents the lines from forming.
- Restylane—is a cosmetic
dermal filler that restores the lost volume in the facial wrinkles
and folds that form by your nose and mouth. This anti aging
treatment is also done via tiny injections and can last at least
six months. Restylane was also approved by the FDA for the treatment
of the nasolabial folds.
- Laser Treatments—these
are generally used by those who don’t want to have an
invasive procedure. Pulses of light are administered to the
selected area while lasers penetrate the skin’s deeper
layers. Some of these treatments require a social downtime while
the skin recuperates. This anti aging treatment can be used
in conjunction with Botox or Restylane.
- Homeopathic Medicinal—when
the body doesn’t receive the appropriate nutrients, i.e.
antioxidants, from foods, an alternative would be to take a
homeopathic medicinal as an anti aging treatment. Some homeopathic
medicinal anti aging treatments work to help improve the skin’s
elasticity and suppleness; reduce wrinkling and sagging; help
nutrients make their way to the skin in order to moisturize
it; and remove toxins from the skin.
