Aging is one of life’s many inevitabilities; there is no escaping it and it affects everyone. However, although aging is ineluctable, there are ways to temporarily prevent it and slow its progression. The biggest display of age is the face; most people can tell how old someone is just by their facial appearance. This is because the skin is thinner on the face, and when this is coupled with the face’s highly motive expressions, it can lead to the development of wrinkles and rhytides. Fortunately, there are a number of safe and effective facial aging treatments, such as Botox.

What is facial aging and what causes it?

Facial aging is a term used to describe the visible signs of aging that affect the facial skin, such as wrinkles, discolourations, volume loss, and facial hair. It is a natural process that happens to every person, although the time facial aging occurs is different for everyone and is highly dependent on several factors, including lifestyle, diet, and environmental exposure. In most cases, facial aging is a gradual process that starts when a person is in their 20s, 30s, or 40s, and becomes more noticeable as time goes by. Although it is a result of the natural process of the body changing and developing over time, it can also be caused or hastened by lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, and sun exposure.
 
Facial aging is a natural process that occurs due to a combination of genetics, lifestyle, and the environment in which we live. While there is no way to stop facial aging, good skincare and personal hygiene can help slow it down and keep skin looking young for longer. Facial aging is caused by the cumulative effect of sun damage, smoking, emotional stress, and other environmental and genetic factors.

Can you reverse aging?

One of the most pressing questions in modern medicine is how we can prevent and reverse the aging process. Aging causes our bodies and minds to deteriorate and become weaker over time, resulting in a host of medical conditions and an increased risk of disease and other complications, such as increased susceptibility to injury and prolonged recovery times. Despite the best efforts of scientists and medical professionals, the true causes of aging remain a mystery. Although they know that aging causes the body to become weaker and less resilient over time, scientists and researchers have been unable to prevent or slow aging at the cellular level. However, while there is no permanent solution to the reversal of aging, there are a number of effective treatments and procedures that can temporarily turn back the clock and produce youthful and rejuvenatory results.

How does Synergy help you with aging skin?

Synergy can implement a wide number of procedures to help with aging skin, such as botulinum toxin injections, also known as Botox. Botox temporarily disrupts the nerve signals in the facial muscles, preventing movements and facial expressions that lead to dynamic wrinkles—lines that are present or accentuated when smiling, frowning, or squinting. There are a number of other therapies that the clinicians at Synergy can implement; for more information, please call our office today!

How do skin resurfacing treatments work?

Skin is the largest organ and serves a variety of functions, such as forming a protective barrier against the outside world. This protective role means that skin is exposed to a wide variety of environmental factors, including sunlight, which can cause it to age and become damaged. One of the most effective methods of reversing these effects is known as skin resurfacing, or dermabrasion, a procedure that removes a small amount of skin in order to reduce the signs of aging. Skin is constantly regenerating, with new, healthy cells underneath the old, aged surface cells; skin resurfacing removes the worn-out surface layers to reveal the healthy, young, and regenerated cells underneath. Although our skin naturally removes these outer layers of skin, sometimes assistance is needed to achieve the most rejuvenating results.
