How to Look 10 Years Younger Without Surgery
Who wouldn’t mind looking slightly younger and more fresh-faced? Wrinkles, sunspots, and sagging skin are some of the most obvious signs that give away your age—or even make you appear to be older than you actually are. Despite having a great skin care routine, it can be difficult to completely prevent any of these signs of aging, because our skin is constantly damaged by gravity, intrinsic aging, harsh weather, sun exposure, and more. Luckily, there are convenient ways of making yourself look revitalized without needing to take weeks off for recovery after surgery. Even though a minimally invasive treatment or cosmetic change is not as effective at reversing signs of aging as plastic surgery can be, these strategies can significantly improve your appearance. The various cosmetic treatments, like the fillers and BOTOX® our New Jersey practice offers, aren’t mutually exclusive: You can combine different treatments that are each designed for addressing a unique aspect of aging or skin damage. Here are some non-surgical techniques you can use to look younger right away:
Make Your Skin Smoother and Firmer
BOTOX® is typically used on areas of the upper face, such as around the eyes and forehead, to smooth out dynamic wrinkles due to muscle activity, while facial fillers add volume to hide wrinkles caused by a loss of collagen or moisture, often on the center and lower areas of the face. BOTOX® relaxes facial muscles, while fillers add fullness to the skin. You can use a combination of both types of injectables to get a temporarily lifted and tightened appearance.
Even Out Your Complexion
Injectables won’t do anything for dull, washed-out, blotchy, and leathery skin. To improve pigmentation and texture issues, try having a chemical peel to exfoliate the surface, which reveals more youthful skin, improves circulation, and encourages collagen production.
Create the Look of Fuller Lips
As a society, we tend to associate fuller and firmer lips with youth. Lip injections will physically add volume to your pout, while liners can give them a plumper look.
Change Up Your Hair
Our hair often becomes drier, thinner, and coarser as we get older due to a combination of chronological aging, hormonal fluctuations, and other factors. Adding some highlights to your hair and switching to warmer tones can brighten up your whole look.
