Anti-aging treatments are a category of aesthetic treatments that specifically aim to reduce or eliminate features that develop over the years. In most cases, they target the skin.
Your skin naturally loses some of its elasticity and firmness with age because of two proteins: collagen and elastin. Both of these proteins preserve your skin’s structure. Collagen keeps it firm while elastin keeps it tight, but they both diminish as you age.
Beyond the natural aging process, other outside factors contribute to the development of wrinkles, scarring, and other physical features associated with old age. Ultraviolet rays from the sun speed up the process of collagen and elastin loss and can result in issues with the color and texture of your skin.
Smoking, obesity, gravity, stress, and dehydration also contribute to your loss of skin quality. Rough or discolored skin won’t harm you, but you might not like the way it looks.
The team at St. Pete Wellness & MedSpa offers a range of anti-aging treatment options to help you look more youthful for longer. Though they can’t counteract all of the effects of aging, they can diminish certain features and boost your appreciation for your skin. Your provider might recommend:
Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that takes advantage of your natural healing process. Your provider makes tiny, shallow needlepoints in your skin to stimulate healing and cellular regeneration. You can also add platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to your treatment for a faster, more drastic result.
Cosmetic injectables like Botox and Dysport temporarily alleviate fine lines like crow’s feet, forehead lines, frown lines, and neck bands.
Energy treatments utilize energy to create heat and disrupt your tissues, causing them to heal or diminish spots. At St. Pete Wellness & MedSpa, you can choose between intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy and radiofrequency skin rejuvenation.
Anti-aging treatments are fully elective aesthetic treatments. Although they don’t improve your general health, you might consider getting them if you’re dissatisfied with the way your appearance is changing with age.
If your skin causes you to feel self-conscious or less attractive than you were in previous years, anti-aging treatments can help you age more gracefully and with more confidence.
