How to Combat the Signs of Aging

How to Combat the Signs of Aging

We all love celebrating our birthdays each year and enjoying the parties and events highlighting another year around the sun. But the wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin that can accompany those birthdays? Not so much.

But just because you’re adding more candles to your birthday cake, it doesn’t mean that you actually have to look that old. There are plenty of ways you can combat the signs of aging and achieve a younger look!

Wear Sunscreen

There’s not a single Miami resident that’s a stranger to the sun, and while may love soaking up those warm rays, you’re not doing your skin any favors. If you’re not wearing the proper protection, all that sunlight can leave you with some unwanted lines and sagging.

When you’re outside, even if it’s not particularly sunny, make sure you’re wearing SPF, either in the form of sunscreen or moisturizer that contains a sun protection factor. Reapply throughout the day as needed, especially if you’re in direct sunlight.

Avoid Tanning Beds

Although some try to argue that using the beds is the same as using the sun, that’s not the case for two reasons:

  1. The bulbs are much closer to your skin and the UV rays are more concentrated.

  2. You don’t wear any sun-safety products when using the beds; on the contrary, you probably use enhancers.

Instead, get a spray tan or use self-tanner if you’re craving some color.

Improve Your Smile

You might not realize it, but your smile has a big effect on how young or mature you look. A discolored, misaligned, or otherwise damaged smile can actually cause you to have an older appearance, while a whiter, straighter, restored smile can make you look up to 10 years younger. If your smile doesn’t look the way you wish it would, there are many paths to consider.

Whitening

You can opt for at-home whitening treatments in which your dentist will make you custom molds and provide you with clinical-strength whitening gels. If you want faster, more dramatic results, you can choose an in-office treatment that can get your teeth up to eight shades whiter in an hour.

Veneers

If you’re looking to whitening and straighten your teeth, veneers are a long-term solution that can help. Lasting up to 15 years, porcelain veneers can be a perfect way to cosmetically restore your smile and achieve a younger appearance.

Implants

If you’re missing a tooth or several teeth, implants can be installed to replace them and give you a complete, healthy, and dazzling smile.

Facials and Peels

There are a number of facials, peels, and other anti-aging treatments that you can receive to help you feel and look better than ever. Some of these include:

Age-Defying Peptide Treatment

This treatment uses ultra-firming ingredients and phyto-peptide technology to rid your face of fine lines.

Oxygen Facials

This facial uses moisture and light to promote oxygenation and circulation, rejuvenating acne-prone, dull, or sluggish facial skin.

Chemical Peels

This treatment uses medical-grade chemical peel technology to reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne, wrinkles, pores, age spots, sunspots, and more.

Facial Injections

Injections are a wonderful way to reduce fines lines and wrinkles and add volume back into your facial features, all without going under the knife. Some common injection products include:

  • Botox: This product helps relax facial muscles around the eyebrows, forehead, chin, under the eyes, and around the jaw and chin to tighten loose and saggy skin and give you a more youthful appearance.

  • Juvéderm: This facial filler can add volume to your cheeks and other areas of the face.

  • RADIESSE®: This FDA-approved filler can stimulate collagen production, replenish volume loss, and address folds and wrinkles.
