“When will I need a facelift?”
We hear this question quite often at Skin Care Institute. If you’re concerned about the signs of aging, there’s a good chance you’ve asked yourself this very same question.
So, how do you know if or when surgery is a good option for you?
With so many age-defying tools on the market, determining which type of treatments are right for you can be a challenge. Fortunately, aging gracefully is one of our primary missions at Skin Care Institute, so we feel extremely qualified to help. In fact, we are so serious about helping you age on your own terms that we have devoted our entire practice to it.
Here are three tips for better understanding your age-defying treatment options:
1. Are you unhappy with the tone and texture of your skin?
If you’re hoping to improve textural irregularities, uneven skin tone, pore size or dullness, your best bet is to schedule a series of skin rejuvenation treatments such as Fraxel®, IPL photofacial, Clear + Brilliant® or microneedling. All these treatments work differently but accomplish the main goal of stimulating new collagen and elastin growth within your skin, while also helping to smooth texture and improve tone. A facelift is not going to help you improve your skin texture or tone.
2. Do you see the improvement you want when you pull your skin back?
If you have lax skin on your face or neck and you are able to pull it back so your skin looks tighter and less saggy or wrinkled, a face or neck lift may be helpful. If you are not up for surgery, Ultherapy® at Skin Care Institute uses non-invasive ultrasound energy to help strengthen and tighten the foundational layers of your skin, providing a subtle lifting effect without any downtime. Your results with Ultherapy are gradual, appearing over the months following your treatment. There’s no downtime and your benefits will be long-lasting. One treatment is usually all you need to enjoy lasting results.
If you’re looking to smooth crow’s feet around your eyes, you may be well suited for an injectable treatment with the neuromodulator Botox®, which helps to smooth away targeted lines by relaxing the muscle movement that causes those lines and wrinkles to form. If you’re interested in skin tightening and texture improvement, we achieve wonderful skin-smoothing results with a series of microneedling treatments, with or without platelet-rich plasma (PRP). These are just some of the options available here at Skin Care Institute. During a personal consultation, we can review even more!
3. Do you have a healthy attitude about aging and your body?
We love aging gracefully with the best of them, and helping you do so, too, but we also love the aging process and all the wisdom and joy that comes with it! It’s a privilege to age, and we want you to love yourself no matter what age you are or how many wrinkles you have. Aging is a beautiful thing! Surgery and non-surgical aesthetic treatments are wonderful tools we can use to look and feel our best.
If you’re looking for ways to bring out your best skin or slow signs of aging without surgery, you are in the right place! From Ultherapy® non-invasive skin tightening to injectables, laser skin treatments and microneedling with PRP, we’ve got the proven tools to help you enjoy a youthful, vibrant look at every stage of life, whether you’re 80 or 18.
