Radium Medical Aesthetics reveals the 4 ways in which we can turn back the clock and go back to the fresh radiant skin we once had.
No one is spared by the ravages of time. Life is too short to be doing monotonous skincare routine that does not do much to age-proof your skin anyway. Don’t relent to the natural process of aging. Life is too short for that. We say: It’s time to break out of your usual skincare routine, and claim back what you once had!
Turn Back the Clock to Your Early 20s
Remember the times when you were in your early 20s? Your skin was at the peak of its health. It was probably well-hydrated, firm, and bright.
Taking you back to reality, if your skin is anything but bright and radiant, Restylane SkinBoosters will help you to restore your youth. Stabilised hyaluronic acid fillers are introduced just under the skin to bring back the hydration so the skin immediately looks firmer and brighter.
Combine this treatment with Dual Yellow Laser to transform your skin and give it a further boost. Intense, yet gentle yellow and green lights emitted from Dual Yellow Laser are capable of reaching the deep dermis to break down the residual pigments and reduce the production of melanin in the skin so the recurrence rate is low. Skin brightening effect can be achieved by removing pigments and treat scars and stretch mark.
From Saggy to Smooth Skin
Our skin is at the mercy of several factors when we age – harsh environment and bad dietary habits also directly affect our skin. As we grow older, the skin becomes thin and more translucent because of the thinning of the epidermis. It also becomes loose and saggy because of the loss of elastic fibers and collagen.
To combat loose and saggy skin, you can consider non-surgical thread lift such as Silhouette Soft Thread Lift or PDO Thread Lift. Both treatments require the doctor to simply insert dissolvable threads with anchors and barbs to compress and reposition sagging and loose skin.
For people who are averse to needles, there is a non-invasive skin lifting option for you. Ultherapy Skin Lifting uses high intensity focused ultrasound to stimulate more collagen production in your skin. Although results are not as visible and immediate as thread lift treatment, Ultherapy skin lifting works on the foundational layers of the skin to provide an overall anti-aging effect so as to delay signs of aging.
Don’t Neglect Your Hands
We are often caught up with spending money to anti-age our face but we always neglect our hands. The daily abuse of our hands results in bony hands with thin, roughened skin, covered in sunspots and other pigmentation.
The good news is that dermal fillers are effective for plumping the skin by adding volume in deficient areas. Radiesse dermal filler is the first and only dermal filler approved by the FDA for hand augmentation to provide hand rejuvenation treatment. Unlike other regular dermal fillers, Radiesse continues to stimulate the treated area to stimulate collagen for a more youthful appearance.
Beware: A Saggy Neck Tells Your Real Age
You may not notice but the skin on your neck goes through the same wear and tear your face is. No matter how youthful your face looks, if you have saggy neck, it’s a telling sign of your real age. Other than trying to hide your sagging neck with scarves and turtlenecks, why don’t you do something about it?
By employing a special technique, the aesthetic doctor is able to relax the muscles in the neck which pulls the skin downwards. Botox is used in this neck lifting treatment to lift and tighten the neck and lower face and improve the overall appearance.

It is a long standing stereotype that women love to pretty themselves up while guys will just throw on a t-shirt and jeans and be on their way. While this stereotype does have merit, it is not as solid as one may think. Even men care about their appearance. They may show this care in a different way then women do, but they do still very much care. It is because of this desire to look good and attractive that cause so many men to hit the gym all the time.
But one thing more and more men are starting to realize is that women do not just want a guy with a nice body, but a nice face as well. What I mean by this is that some guys will have a lot of lines and wrinkles, which can detract from their overall attractiveness. This is why Men and Botox are starting to come together.
In the past, men did not like to use cosmetic things because it would make them feel overly feminine, like it was a womans thing. This feeling is still very much true, which is why you do not see many guys getting manicures. But when it comes to botox, this is something even men are starting to make use of.
Botox is a great way for a man to remove those pesky wrinkles and lines from his face, giving him a softer, more youthful appearance to go with that physique he has been working on. It has very little to do with typical woman’s products and as such it is becoming more widely acceptable for men to make use of it.
Men and Botox may be becoming more popular, but there are still many who hold reservations. They are still afraid that it is a bit too feminine for their tastes and it makes them uncomfortable. This is why a common question asked by potential botox users is just how many guys actually use botox.
Safe to say, thousands, if not millions of men use botox to regain their youthful appearance. Even more men are starting to use it as well, making that number go even higher as the days roll by.
While men are starting to accept botox as being on the same level as working out at the gym (By that I mean, something both men and women can do) they might also be wary of the potential risks. Using treatments like this are fairly foreign and so it should come as no surprise why some guys would have some reservations.
Botox does have side effects, but for the most part they are mild and diminish rapidly if you have them at all. In some rare cases more extreme side effects can occur, such as difficulty breathing or swallowing due to the way botox works.
If you are a guy and are interesting in making use of botox, you should not feel any shame in your choice. As I said above, it is no different then hitting the gym, you are simply making yourself more attractive so that you can appeal to women more.
For women who want to look younger, and even some men, the newest injections for the wrinkles may be something to consider if you have tried everything else with little to no results.
Having a qualified professional inject substances that help turn back the clock by diminishing the deep lines and creases you see every day may be your next option.
The newest injections for the wrinkles vary with most common being the ones that are collagen based. As we age, our skin loses it’s elasticity and collagen becomes less prevalent under the skin making those creases and fine lines become more noticeable.
Other types of injectables are fat grafts, acid-based fillers, Botox, and silicone. Fat grafts are your own fatty tissue that is removed from one area of the body to another.
Acid-based fillers, such as Restylane, are quickly becoming more popular for those that want a longer lasting procedure.
Botox, which is derived from the botulism toxin, is the most cost effective and provides a quick fix to problem areas.
The most popular of the injectables is silicone. Microdroplet Liquid Silicone is injected beneath the layers of skin on the face which helps the muscles around the eyes and mouth relax giving the skin a smoother, softer look.
The results of these fillers can be amazing. These types of treatments add plumpness to the skin and fill in deep lines and creases. Your cheeks and lips appear fuller and your eyelids look lifted.
These types of procedures are usually performed in twenty minutes or less, on an outpatient basis, in a clinic or doctors office.
Possible side effects include itching, redness, swelling, and a temporary hardening of the area. Although rare, in some cases an allergic reaction can occur, which can be life threatening.
Since everyone is different the length of time each procedure lasts depends on that particular person and how deep the lines and creases were to begin with and how they react to the treatment.
While some patients may not need a touch up for a year, others may need to make an appointment within three months for one.
Before undergoing any type of surgical procedure do your homework. Research the different types, results, side effects and most importantly the doctor who will be performing the procedure. There have been numerous reports regarding the dangers of receiving these procedures by physicians who are not skilled in giving them.
Blood clots can result from the filler being accidentally injected into a blood vessel, creating a life threatening emergency that requires immediate attention.
For this reason, it is best to ask someone who has had a good result for a recommendation as well as asking for the qualifications of the physician you choose and to see testimonials of former patients.
Companies everywhere continue to work furiously to be the first to create the next best thing in skin fillers. The demand for anti-aging products keeps growing due to the Baby Boomer generation becoming older every year.
Due to these procedures being considered cosmetic in nature, the newest injections for the wrinkles aren’t covered under health insurance policies. The average price for looking younger is between five hundred and one thousand dollars, per syringe.
