Anti-Aging

Are you tired of not looking as young on the outside as you feel on the inside? As our skin ages, the reflection we see in the mirror can feel out of sync with the youthfulness we feel on the inside. If fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and discoloration have you wishing you could rewind time, the vast array of anti-aging solutions that Skin Artisans offers can help! From skin and laser treatments to injectables, our experts can help you turn back the clock on aging skin and restore radiant, fresh, youthful-looking skin.

Although we can’t stop the aging process altogether, there is so much we can do to prevent the signs of aging and dramatically improve the quality and appearance of our skin as the years progress. The important thing is to start now and take control of how your skin ages. Schedule a complimentary consultation with a Skin Artisans Advanced Practice Esthetician or Injection Specialist to start looking as young as you feel!

Although many factors affect how our skin ages, the visible signs commonly include:

  • Fine lines around the corners of the eyes and mouth.
  • Deep wrinkles due to expressions or volume loss.
  • Loss of elasticity and sagging of the lower face and neck due to decreased collagen production, fat loss, and bone loss.
  • Broken blood vessels around the nose and cheeks.
  • Uneven skin tone and discoloration due to sun exposure and environmental damage.
  • Enlarged pores due to collagen and elastin breakdown.
  • Dull, lackluster complexion due to poor circulation and decrease in cell -turnover.
  • Chronic dehydration and dryness due to a decrease in sebum and hyaluronic acid production.

As we age, the rate at which our skin produces collagen and elastin significantly decreases. These components are like the building blocks of our skin’s volume and youthful smoothness. Collagen and elastin provide support, fullness, and elasticity to our skin, almost like how a box spring supports a mattress. As production of these fibers slows with age, we begin to notice fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. The repeated muscle contractions of facial expressions can also lead to further breakdown of collagen and elastin and cause wrinkles.

With each decade, our faces experience a natural progression of bone and fat loss, further adding to an aged appearance. Dermal fillers, like Juvéderm® Voluma™ and Sculptra® Aesthetic, are effective ways to restore lost volume and lift to your skin.

Most dermal fillers are comprised of a substance called hyaluronic acid. When injected into a line or wrinkle, it attracts and binds water to itself, causing an instant plumping and smoothing effect. Botox® Cosmetic can even prevent future wrinkles by softening the muscles that contract to form a wrinkle!

Almost 90% of visible aging on our skin is due to environmental factors, such as sun exposure, and lifestyle choices, like smoking. Both of these cause extensive free radical damage to our skin. Free radicals are molecules that are missing an electron in their outer orbit. In their effort to become balanced, they steal that electron from our skin and damage our cells’ DNA. In turn, we experience discoloration such as brown spots and redness, wrinkles, and sagging skin from collagen break down. A great physician-grade skincare regimen that includes an SPF to prevent sun damage, an antioxidant serum to neutralize free radicals, and a retinol to stimulate collagen production can turn the tables on aging skin! Laser treatments and chemical peels can also do wonders to reverse these signs of aging!

At Skin Artisans, our team of Advanced Practice Estheticians and Injection Specialists have decades of experience in treating the visible signs of aging. They work together to help you identify the root causes of your skin’s aging and then develop a customized plan to help prevent and correct your concerns. This is a true partnership in which your clinician tracks and monitors your progress every step of the way to ensure you are getting safe and effective results.
