Many years ago, if you heard someone talking about an anti-aging treatment or product, you may have had visions of a carnival huckster or a con artist. Today anti-aging treatments are all the talk. You see them in magazines, on television, even radio stations are advertising anti-aging breakthroughs. The reason for all the hype and excitement is because these treatments have the backing of science and the medical industry. These treatments now have verifiable results. In the past year did we see development of the perfect elixir? No, but there were significant and scientifically solid advances in anti-aging skin care.
By understanding the natural aging process, we know that as we get older, we naturally lose collagen. Combined with exposure to the sun and pollution, which destroys collagen, this is the primary factor in the aging of our skin. Collagen is the main protein of connective tissue that keeps skin plump and line-free. It is not enough to find a product that tightens the skin, ideally, we want to promote the increase of collagen. A good anti-aging treatment is one that will work to put the body’s natural collagen production on fast-forward.
Just a few short years ago, cosmetic surgery was the only option to reverse the effects of aging. These procedures are expensive, and sometimes they work great, while other times they create an awful plastic, fake look to the person. The same can be said for Botox injections, which can sometime give a frozen face look. That’s not really turning back the clock, and often times it makes things worse, not better.
Cosmetic surgery and Botox are invasive measures. At Spa Zarmina, we can design for you a noninvasive anti-aging regime based on your skin type. We will look at the natural aging effect as well as the damage caused by the elements. Additionally, we will factor in medical issues that may play a role in the aging process.
The biggest take away that we have learned from all the anti-aging breakthroughs, is you don’t have to be over 50 to start taking care of your skin. While you are young you can start an anti-aging regime to block the effects of the sun, pollution, elements and natural aging.
