5 Potential Benefits of Anti-Aging Medicine

While creams and sunscreens can effectively prevent signs of aging, reducing existing wrinkles and sun damage is more difficult. With the help of a specialist, you can build a treatment plan that fits your needs. Anti-aging medicine has come a long way in the past two decades, and you might be surprised by how versatile and effective these new procedures can be.

At The Vitality Institute of Agoura in Agoura Hills, California, Dr. Stefanie Feldman and her team of specialists provide a variety of anti-aging treatments designed to combat the effects of time on your face and body.

The science behind anti-aging medicine

The field of anti-aging medicine has rapidly expanded over the years, growing from cosmetic surgery and injectables to include less invasive treatments. While there is no way to stop time, dermatologists are finding new ways to slow down and reverse signs of aging

Many of these new treatments place an emphasis on stimulating your body’s natural processes, particularly the production of collagen and elastin. These proteins form the network that gives your skin structure and support, volume and elasticity. 

You enter adulthood with a lush reserve of collagen and elastin, and your skin is always replacing and repairing itself. As you get older, certain bodily processes begin to slow, including production of these proteins. Without them, your skin will begin to crease and fold, creating wrinkles. 

Anti-aging medicine works to keep production going, giving your skin the collagen and elastin it needs to stay soft and supple. Depending on the treatment, there are many additional potential benefits.

Types of anti-aging treatments 

Fine lines and wrinkles are only the tip of the aging iceberg. Loss of volume can cause you to look thin and fatigued, and sun damage can lead to hyperpigmentation, including blemishes like sun spots. 

At the Vitality Institute of Agoura, Dr. Feldman offers three of the most safe and effective skin treatments: 

Micro-injuries, lasers, sound waves, and vibrations have been proven to rejuvenate the skin by stimulating protein production, and combining different treatments can lead to stunning results.

5 benefits of anti-aging treatments

There are many individual benefits to each type of treatment, but overall you can expect these general benefits from anti-aging medicine: 

  1. Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles 
  2. Improved skin tone and texture 
  3. Fewer sunspots and other instances of hyperpigmentation 
  4. Higher self-esteem and confidence 
  5. Mitigation of ongoing sun damage and aging 

Making anti-aging therapies a regular part of your health care routine can keep you looking and feeling younger for many years to come.

When to consider a consultation 

Just because you don’t see wrinkles doesn’t mean they aren’t forming under the surface. UV radiation is the biggest contributor to aging, and sun damage can take years to manifest on the outer layers of your skin. 

It’s never too early to begin including anti-aging medicine in your skin care routine. In fact, preemptive treatment can keep fine lines from deepening into wrinkles. With a daily sunscreen and regular appointments, you can preserve your youthful complexion as long as possible. 

To learn more and discuss your options, schedule a consultation with Dr. Feldman. She can evaluate your skin and help you decide what treatments best suit your needs. To get in touch, call 818-208-3803, or request an appointment online
