HOW AGING AFFECTS YOUR SKIN
Your skin’s most powerful foe is the sun. Ultraviolet rays penetrate skin layers and damage your cells and DNA. Other factors contribute to skin health and degradation as well, including genetics, environment, and lifestyle choices — so the effects differ from person to person.
But aging is the one factor everyone shares, and it does a number on your skin. The changes aren’t just in your imagination; they’re scientific facts. Here’s what happens to your skin over time:
The epidermis (outer layer) thins
Pigment cells (melanocytes) decrease
The remaining melanocytes increase in size
Age spots appear as melanocytes clump together
Elastin decreases, and skin becomes delicate, brittle, and leathery
Collagen decreases, and skin loses its structure and contours
Blood vessels break and show through the skin’s surface
Oil production wanes
Subcutaneous fat diminishes
That’s a daunting list of negatives, but the good news is that you can counteract many of those consequences with innovative treatments.
HOW TO FIGHT THE SIGNS OF SKIN AGING
In addition to sun protection and a sound at-home skin care routine, there’s a lot you can do to repair the inevitable effects of growing older. Our specialists here at Nuderma Health & Med Spa offer several treatments that address a wide range of skin issues, including:
Chemical peels to remove the outer layers of skin
Microneedling to stimulate collagen production
Botox® to smooth dynamic wrinkles
Profound RF boost collagen and elastin protiens
Vitti Pure Stem-Cell/Growth factor serum facial to trigger your skin’s self- healing properties
PCL thread lifts to anchor your skin without surgery
Dermal fillers to revitalize and restore its softness, resilience, youthful contours.
THE BENEFIT OF DERMAL FILLERS
Injectable dermal fillers are one of the most popular anti-aging treatments among women and men of all ages, second only to neurotoxin treatments such as Botox. Every year, almost 4 million opt for soft-tissue fillers to de-wrinkle their skin.
Each brand of filler and the individual formulas within each line contain different ingredients and offer distinct benefits. We help you choose the right dermal filler for your needs and determine the injection’s precise location and depth to give you the most natural-looking results.
The aesthetic injectors at Nuderma have years of extensive medical experience that enables them to be able to navigate your facial anatomy and direct the injection at the appropriate depth for the finest results. Dermal fillers do what your current skin care routine can’t. Here are just a few of their benefits:
Plump up your skin
Replace lost volume
Restore the contours of your cheeks, chin, and nose
Diminish acne scars
Fade chin dimpling
Smooth tear trough lines
Soften folds around your nose and mouth
Reduce vertical “lipstick lines” around lips
In short, dermal fillers give a liquid face-lift requiring no surgery and no downtime. Your face looks younger, smoother, and more symmetrical after spending just a few minutes.
YOUR NEW ANTI-AGING ROUTINE
Dermal fillers are safe, FDA-approved, and versatile, and they’re a perfect addition to your skin care routine. We use a variety of brands, of Juvéderm products enabling us to precisely address your aesthetic goals.
Each formula has a unique composition — some excel at lip plumping, others at cheek contouring and wrinkle smoothing. The effects last 6-24 months, but results vary depending on your anatomy, activity level, genetics, and the product.
You can come in for a touch-up anytime you need it, which is why we recommend dermal fillers as part of your overall skin care plan. You can also couple your dermal filler treatment with Botox, a powerful neurotoxin that address a different type of wrinkle that dermal fillers don’t — dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle contractions such as smiling and frowning.
