Adapting to an Aging Face

Posted On 07/17/2018 by Dr. Christopher Zoumalan

As Mark Twain once said, “Wrinkles merely mark where smiles have been.” With the experience, memories, and wisdom of growing older also comes outward changes. Fortunately, there are both preventative and restorative procedures that are available to you to help you adapt to an aging face. Please reach out to Dr. Christopher Zoumalan and his experienced team to learn more about the cosmetic procedures available to you, including Botox and a non-invasive cheek lift in Beverly Hills.

Prioritize Taking Care of the Skin You Have

To prevent damage to your skin, which can be caused by increasing age, make sure to prioritize taking care of the skin you do have. Making sure that you have an effective sunscreen to protect from UVB light, which causes sunburn, is of the utmost importance. Additionally, investing in a quality exfoliant and moisturizer can remove dead, excess skin and help hydrate to reduce the noticeability of wrinkles. It is important to find out what works best for your skin and stick to it so that any future procedures you have will look as natural as possible. Along with protecting your skin aesthetically, this will also protect your skin from further complications, such as skin cancer.

Treat Your Expression Lines

Perhaps one of the most popular procedures to combat aging is Botulinum Toxin Injections, otherwise known as Botox. According to Harvard Health, “these injections are used to treat the expression lines of the forehead and between the brows.” To improve the look of expression lines and smooth out the skin for a more youthful appearance, Botox works by partially immobilizing the muscles that form expression lines. This partially immobilization of the muscles help to decrease the creasing in prominent expression lines, which can add to the look of aging. Even with preventative measures, it is hard to combat all these lines since they are linked to the inevitable movement of your face.

Don’t Forget Your Cheeks

Overtime, the appearance of your cheeks become loose and saggy. To combat this effect of aging and to restore a youthful look, undergoing a non-invasive cheek lift in Beverly Hills will make all the difference. This procedure enhances aging cheeks by filling and lifting hollow and/or sagging soft tissue. This is especially beneficial to those who want to enhance the fullness of their cheeks and replenish lost skin volume. For more information on this procedure and its benefits, contact Dr. Zoumalan today.

Laser Treatments

Sometimes, all the care in the world can still lead to undesirable outcomes, so laser treatments can be extremely effective in combating effects of aging skin. For example, if you want to get rid of liver spots or visible broken capillaries, lasers can be used to target those specific pigments. Additionally, laser treatments can be used to resurface skin by stripping away the upper layers, therefore removing sun damage and scars from acne. With different laser treatments to combat different signs of aging, make sure to speak with Dr. Zoumalan and his experienced team so that you can get the results you will love. Being prepared and proactive about your skin care can help mitigate the need for procedures such as this, but even the most prepared need a contingency plan, which is where laser treatment comes in handy.

Although aging is a natural part of life, it does not mean that you can’t make any changes or improvements while adapting to the effects of aging. To ensure that you look and feel your best throughout the entire aging process, contact Dr. Zoumalan for all your questions about anti-aging procedures, Botox, and non-invasive cheek lifts in Beverly Hills.
