It’s Healthy Aging Month, and while any aging beats the alternative, we’re lucky to have options and a say about how we look while we do it. Ensure you look your best at any age, restoring and maintaining your natural beauty with some of our favorite treatments.
Lappert Medical Grade Skin Care
What you put on your face matters. Make sure you’re treating your body’s largest organ with top-tier ingredients that are proven to work. Medical-grade products are backed by science and have been vetted by the FDA, dermatologist-tested, and have results-driven data backing the active ingredients.
While you may have sticker shock upon first glance, medical-grade products are an investment that helps you save money in the long run with preventative and corrective treatment plans. If you’re intimidated to purchase, start with the essentials like an SPF, a retinoid, a cleanser, and a moisturizer. A solid routine can help you look younger and maintain your natural glow without surgical intervention.
As we get older, the appearance of age spots (or liver spots) becomes more common. They form on the skin from overactive pigment cells, the result of UV overexposure — aka too much time in the sun. While common, they can make anyone feel self-conscious about their skin.
PicoSure Focus is a laser rejuvenation procedure that uses laser technology to heat up and destroy old skin cells: This triggers new collagen and elastin growth for plumper, more youthful-looking skin. PicoSure Focus is not one note. Using short bursts of energy, it targets pigment, breaking the melanin into particles that are absorbed naturally, leading to a blemish-free appearance.
A minimally- invasive way to ward off the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles (temporarily, at least), neuromodulators work by freezing the nerve where injected, making the treated muscle unable to contract, thus creating a smoother, softer appearance.
One of the most popular aesthetic treatments for a reason, the results last for three months and can be done subtly for an understated and natural look that restores a youthful look and your confidence along with it.
Fall marks the official start of laser season. Following any laser-based procedure, you’ll be advised to avoid exposing the treated skin to the sun. Cooler weather and less daylight makes this much easier.
Laser Peels are a great way to get acquainted with the new season while also honoring the theme of Healthy Aging Month. Laser Peels are a modern equivalent to the dreaded chemical peel, using a similar method of removing the topmost layers of skin only with laser light instead of harsh acids. The short pulses of light are less invasive and help treat facial imperfections with the same intensity, effectively targeting and treating fine lines and wrinkles. The result is plumper, brighter skin that looks and feels younger.
