My Skin is Falling and it Can’t Get Up by Alison O’Neil, B.S., Clinical Skin Care Specialist, Skin TherapistMonday, July 26th, 2010
Are you tired of looking tired? Good news, now there are simple interventions to give you just the lift you need without having to go under the knife.
The beauty of living in today’s world is that the extreme of treatments tried and true continue to be tweaked. In the 1960’s if you wanted a lift the only choice was a face lift. Serious surgery and severe changes that made such a huge difference in appearance were often only afforded by wealthy women. Down time of 6 weeks or more and the severity of the change causing some social stigma led many people to think about it more than once. However, by the 90’s people were spending their retirement income on lifting their younger than their years spirits.
The 70’s, 80’s and through today have brought us to 50 years later where we have interventions that change what we can actually see with little no downtime for healing and the benefit of seeing them immediately.
The skin, a little like muscles which strengthen and become more defined through exercise is effected by advanced technology products and procedures which now change the behavior of skin cells. Much like lazy muscles can be altered through exercise today’s skin lifting interventions retrain the skin to act younger. Exercising good habits is a necessary requirement to affording younger acting and looking skin.
Daily skin care matters greatly and finding products that work with your particular skin care needs is helpful, commitment to their use is mandatory. Minor medical interventions like fillers for deeper facial lines or lips; when coupled with or used independently with Botox solves the wrinkle dilemma for many. Laser and Intense Pulsed Light tighten the skin, remove red and brown spots and restores the youthful clear and firm complexion once held in our youth.
The basic ingredient needed is compliance. To be compliant you must like what you are doing, enjoy the outcome of the practice immediately and also see it developing over time. Again much like exercise, You just have to DO IT!
