Anti-aging Q & A
How do anti-aging treatments work?
Age has an effect on your skin that includes an increased appearance of lines and wrinkles and a loss of fat right under the skin that can make you look hollow. Sun damage and age spots become more apparent too.
Often, changes to your skin result from the slowed production of compounds, such as elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. These substances are produced by your body, and when you’re young, their production is prolific. But, as you age, production slows – so skin becomes laxer and lines and wrinkles are more apparent. Plus, you just have more years of life to show on your face.
What anti-aging treatments are available?
Dr. Dalhoumi offers a variety of anti-aging treatments that include:
- Dermal fillers
- Facial peels
- NovaThread non-surgical facelift
- Microneedling with or without Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP)
You may also find renewed energy, brighter skin, enhanced muscle tone, and better overall health through hormone therapies offered by Dr. Dalhoumi.
What are Botox and dermal fillers?
Botox is a popular wrinkle reducer that relaxes facial muscles to alleviate fine lines and wrinkles in your forehead and around the eyes. Dermal fillers use substances, such as hyaluronic acid, to boost the firmness of your skin and fill in hollowed areas of your face. Dermal fillers can plump your skin to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and enhance thinned-out areas, including your lips and cheeks.
What is a non-surgical facelift?
Dr. Dalhoumi offers NovaThreads, a thread lift procedure. The process uses absorbable, surgical threads inserted just under the skin to tighten and lift your skin and give you a brightened appearance and trigger collagen production. He applies the threads via injection.
How does hormone therapy reduce the signs of aging?
The signs of aging show up not only on your face but in other areas of your body as well. As you get older, your production of certain hormones decrease. In women, hormones such as estrogen contribute to moister, healthier skin and weight management, as well as vaginal health and sex drive. In men, testosterone boosts muscle mass, regulates weight and energy, and manages your sex drive.
Both of these hormones decrease as you age, but hormone replacement therapy as offered by Dr. Dalhoumi can restore your levels so you feel and look more like you did in your 20s and 30s.
