Just about anyone we ask these days says that it’s never too early to begin anti-aging. It’s not that we want to prevent all physical change; it’s that we want to keep the control of our aging process well within our own hands, or maybe in the hands of an experienced plastic surgeon. It may sound strange, but age is not a factor in the timing of appropriate skin care. From childhood, the skin benefits from the use of protective sunblock and adequate hydration. Healthy eating habits and proper skin care are also highly recommended for young people. Fortunately, we see a trend of early intervention against the signs of aging.
Where Do You Fit In?
Is there any benefit to having wrinkles treated when you don’t even have any? According to many young people, there is. Botox is a popular treatment among young adults because this wrinkle reducer works in a unique way that can postpone the onset of lines on the face. Botox smooths wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause lines to appear in the first place. For example, frown lines between the eyebrows develop because of the muscle movement that occurs when we frown. When used proactively before lines have become permanent, Botox can be used in small amounts to gently relax frequently used facial muscles.
One of the primary reasons that our skin and superficial tissue ages is because the supportive strands of collagen beneath them break down. Deterioration of collagen robs the skin of vital nutrients. Microneedling may be one of the best ways to get a head start on this issue. During a microneedling session, a sterile instrument is passed over the skin, where tiny micro-channels are created. Don’t worry. We apply numbing cream beforehand so this does not hurt. After treatment, the skin is infused with new collagen.
