By midlife, the signs of stress can often be easily seen across delicate skin. Whether caused by long hours at the office, too many days in the sun, adapting to the household demands or a combination of stressors, it can feel as though your youth is truly slipping away… but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Today’s cutting edge med spa treatments can fight a variety of signs of aging, from crow’s feet to spider veins. Here are 6 treatments designed to help your complexion do more than just survive the demands of midlife, but to thrive.
1. BOTOX® for Precision Results
The cumulative effects of specific facial muscle movements begin to make themselves known as we approach midlife. While many people focus on achieving an optimal work/life balance, it’s easy for the stresses associated with the day-to-day to begin to show as lines created by furrowed brows and squinted eyes.
One of the simplest ways to ease these lines and wrinkles is through targeted treatments like BOTOX®.
When professionally administered, BOTOX® injections can soften existing lines while also limiting the muscle movements that lead to new ones.
2. Fillers for Youthful Volume
Not every line can be solved with BOTOX®. Smile lines and marionette lines are often the result of decreased volume in facial tissues. In order to smooth and soften deeper lines, dermal fillers are key. These injectables safely plump specific areas of the skin, decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, dermal fillers can be used to create more voluminous lips and restore fullness to the mid face.
3. Sclerotherapy to Fight Varicose Veins
While the causes of visible veins may be unavoidable, such as those relating to aging, general weight gain or as a side effect of pregnancy, varicose and spider veins instantly age the skin on which they appear. Sclerotherapy is directed precisely at the offending vein, with some clients seeing the positive effects immediately after the treatment is complete. Vein treatment is minimally invasive, and can be suitable for multiple areas of the body, including the legs.
4. Chemical Peels for a Youthful Complexion
Chemical peels can be ideal for the treatment of multiple facial skin concerns, designed to produce results on fine lines, age spots and acne scars. Peels can be customized, and the strength adjusted, to meet your specific needs and goals. While downtime may vary, facial peels can provide a brighter, smoother, more youthful overall appearance in as little as one appointment.
5. Body Contouring for Trouble Spots
It is often noted that exercise cannot be used to target trouble spots on the body, which can mean that even the most active person has areas that do not seem to improve. Nonsurgical body contouring options, such as CoolSculpting® and Liposonix®, provide precise slimming benefits without the risk of scarring or surgery. Treatments can be used to shape the hips and thighs, as well as the midsection, to create a new, slimmer silhouette.
6. Cellulite Treatments for Tighter Skin
Another side effect of aging, cellulite may not respond to even the most stringent exercise routine. If you’re looking for a treatment that can smooth cellulite, tighten skin and even lessen the appearance of stretch marks, Reaction™ by Viora may be the right option for you. This technique uses targeted radiofrequency energy for a minimally invasive treatment with little downtime that can be used on various areas for beautiful results.
