Are you in or approaching your 40s? You deserve to love the face looking back at you in the mirror, and it is easy to look like yourself, but better. Anti-aging treatments are available that will transform the way you think about yourself and give you the confidence you had in your 20s. Plus, these treatments are non-invasive with no downtime, so you won’t miss a step of your busy life.
Dr. Jennifer Levine, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon based in Manhattan, strongly recommends combination treatments to achieve your goals while cutting your number of appointments in half.
Ultherapy is one of Dr. Levine’s favorite non-invasive skin tightening treatments, as it addresses the same deep layers of skin as a surgical facelift for patients who have mild to moderate skin laxity in the face and neck. Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to impact the SMAS and Platysma, the foundational layers that support the skin. The treatment makes it possible to stay ahead of the aging process, as it stimulates the natural production of collagen, tightens skin and lifts tissue, resulting in a rejuvenated appearance without the cost or downtime of a traditional, surgical facelift.
Facial fillers can also help turn back the hands of time. Juvederm Voluma XC is an FDA-approved filler that is an anti-aging game changer, used to instantly add volume to the cheeks in adults over the age of 21. It will help add gorgeous defined contours to your face while lifting staffing skin. A treatment typically takes less than a half hour and there is no pain, as Juvederm Voluma XC contains lidocaine to keep you comfortable during the treatment. The results can last up to two years! There is no downtime, only some slight side effects like redness or tenderness that will diminish in fewer than seven days.
Another injectable that helps slow the aging clock is Botox®. The popular treatment works by relaxing facial muscles and smoothing wrinkles using an isolated and purified medical grade Botulinum Toxin. It is perfect for treating wrinkles around the forehead area and brow, particularly effective for the crow’s feet at the corner of the eyes, horizontal forehead lines and the vertical lines between the eyebrows. Treatment time is less than 30 minutes and the results will appear within 48 hours, lasting up to six months.
Evoke is a non-invasive technology that produces a glowing, youthful look by applying radiofrequency energy to the cheeks, jowls, jawline and neck. The device is a hands-free facial remodeling tool that structurally reorganizes the facial and submental tissues. As the device is hands free, it is perfect for the socially distanced time we’re in. The results are incredible defined facial characteristics.
Selecting a quality skincare line to use with treatment is also important. We carry the Alastin line of skincare products, which feature products like the Daily Beauty Regime kit, which helps to restore your skin’s natural ability to produce healthy elastin and collagen. This anti-aging collection is an ideal way to gather all the products your skin craves in one place. Dr. Levine can help guide you in recommending products that work well pre and post procedures.
