If you’re already dreading the company holiday party because you don’t want your fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin to be captured in candid photos, we understand. Candid photos can turn out awkward no matter how great your skin is or how young you appear. At San Diego Cosmetic Laser Clinic, we can’t really help with that, but we do have a few solutions for aging skin. We offer a number of anti-aging medical spa treatments that can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and tighten sagging skin. If you want to get your skin holiday photo ready, here are a few of the best facial treatments for aging skin in 2022- 2023.
Dermal fillers smooth out wrinkles to instantly restore a fresh, youthful appearance. At San Diego Cosmetic Laser Clinic, we offer a broad range of formulas by top brands, including JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, Radiesse®, and Sculptra®. Dermal fillers come in a variety of formulations, making them versatile for treating all wrinkle types. They can be used to minimize the appearance of:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Glabellar lines (between the brows)
- Under eye bags
- Mouth and lip lines
- Laugh lines
- Smoker lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Fine lines and wrinkles all over the face
Additionally, facial fillers can be used to restore lost volume to the cheeks, plump up the lips, or to define and contour the cheek and jawline.
San Diego Botox®, Xeomin®, and other cosmetic neurotoxins temporarily prevent the contraction of muscles that create wrinkles. There are two types of wrinkles: dynamic and static. Dynamic wrinkles are those visible during active facial expression. Static wrinkles are those that stay when the face is still. Cosmetic neurotoxins do double duty when it comes to anti-aging injectables. By treating dynamic wrinkles, they help to prevent the formation of static wrinkles, so you stay looking young longer.
Ultherapy in San Diego is a non-invasive facelift procedure that reduces facial sagging without need for incisions, sutures, or extensive recovery time. By employing ultrasound waves to target and heat the deep foundational layers of tissue, ultherapy treatments stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. The regenerative process tightens and lifts the skin on the face and the neck, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and resulting in smoother, more youthful looking skin. Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved treatment for sagging skin, wrinkles, and lines.
Laser skin treatment
Wrinkles, lines, and loss of skin volume aren’t the only signs of facial aging. The texture and appearance of your skin also have an impact on how old you appear. Fraxel laser skin resurfacing is another way to stimulate the production of new collagen while also treating surface level imperfections such as sun damage, acne scars, and uneven skin tone. The fraxel laser technology involves microscopic laser columns that penetrate the skin and deliver energy into the deepest layers. Using a fine grid, the laser targets just a fraction of the skin at a time, leaving the surrounding skin intact. The remaining skin cells aid in the repair and renewal of the treated skin, enabling a quicker healing process and less downtime. Fraxel laser treatments are effective in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, surface scarring, pigmentation, sun damage, and actinic keratosis.
Bonus anti-aging treatment: Double chin reduction
Although this next one’s not technically a skin treatment, we’re adding it as a bonus because you should never underestimate the age-defying effects of a well-defined chin and jawline!
Kybella is the only cosmetic injectable that’s FDA-approved for the treatment of submental fat, otherwise known as the double chin. The injectable formula contains a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule that helps metabolize dietary fat. When injected into the fatty areas under the chin, Kybella destroys the membranes of the fat cells. The fat is then released and metabolized by the body, and the fat cells are destroyed for good. Most patients need a series of 2 to 6 treatments to achieve optimum results.
