Everything You Need to Know About Anti-aging Medicine

Wrinkles, sagging skin, and hyperpigmentation are all natural parts of getting older. However, anti-aging medicine is more advanced than ever, so you can combat time and age at your own pace. You have plenty of options when it comes to treatment, and a trained aesthetician can help you determine which solutions will work best for you. 

The Vitality Institute of Agoura in Agoura Hills, California, provides a variety of anti-aging treatments, including microneedling, skin tightening, laser resurfacing, and nonsurgical facelifts. It can be difficult to know where to start when it comes to anti-aging medicine, but Dr. Stefanie Feldman and her team of specialists can explain more about each option, walk you through the process, and administer professional treatment. 

How anti-aging medicine works 

Most anti-aging treatments work by encouraging the body to rejuvenate itself, which leads to tighter, smoother skin. In order to understand most of these treatments, it’s important to understand how our body ages, and why. 

As we get older, collagen and elastin levels deplete, and our body slows down production of these proteins. This causes our skin to lose volume and elasticity. Loss of volume leads to deep, heavy set wrinkles, while loss of elasticity causes wrinkles left behind by creases and expressions. 

Anti-aging medicine aims to kickstart the body’s natural healing response. This is done using minimally invasive methods like micro-injuries, lasers, or radiofrequency energy. The body reacts to these treatments by healing the affected areas, which leads to the production of collagen and elastin. The end result is younger, brighter, tighter-looking skin. 

Knowing which treatments to choose 

Your treatment depends on what kind of results you want, what your comfort levels are, and what the doctor recommends. 

If you feel self-conscious about the texture and appearance of your skin, laser resurfacing can help you get a smoother, brighter complexion. Those struggling with wrinkles can benefit from radiofrequency microneedling treatments, and skin tightening.
