How You Can Age Gracefully Without Going Under the Knife

Anti-aging, Guilford, CT

It used to be that you just had to live with your appearance— suck it up, even if you didn’t feel like your best self. Luckily, that’s no longer the case. Here at Dr. Gary J. Price’s office, he believes that every patient deserves to live their best life as their best self by aging gracefully. But, how can you age gracefully without going under the knife? We have a few options for you to consider.

Anti-Aging Products

Skin care can go a long way; especially when it’s good skin care. To help your skin stay hydrated, protected from sun damage, and to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, invest in skin care products that contain things like a broad-spectrum sunscreen, hyaluronic acid, retinol, and vitamin A.

Botox

Botox is another great way for you to age gracefully without having to go under the knife. By temporarily relaxing the muscles across your forehead and around your eyes, Botox helps to give you a more youthful look by temporarily reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Fillers

If you feel like your skin has lost all of its elasticity, then join the aging club. Even though a loss of collagen in your skin is a normal part of the aging process, it doesn’t have to be something that you just deal with. In fact, by getting dermal fillers, Dr. Price can help to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles while also adding temporarily volume to the skin. The result? A younger looking you!

You don’t have to hate the aging process. In fact, you can age as gracefully as ever with the help of these and other non-invasive procedures. During your initial consultation with Dr. Price, he will go over all of these options with you as well as surgical options that you may want to consider.

How to Dive Into 2019 With Better Skin

healthy skin, Guilford, CT

Having good skin isn’t something that necessarily comes naturally to a lot of people. If you want to have healthier skin throughout 2019, then we have a few tips for you. Whether it’s getting a procedure done or just investing in some skin care products, we have created a few tips for you to follow.

Start Botox

Botox is one of the most popular non-invasive treatments that we offer patients because it works by actually softening your muscles around your eyes and across your forehead. When the muscles have been softened it helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to softening fine lines and wrinkles, Botox can also be used preventatively. How? You get wrinkles when your face makes certain movements on a regular basis. When, however, your face is unable to make these movements then you are less likely to get wrinkles. One thing to remember about Botox though is that in order for it to work preventatively it needs to be done on a regular basis.

Start Fillers

Fillers work differently than Botox because they actually fill in fine lines and wrinkles while also adding volume to your cheeks and face. If you struggle with having uneven skin texture because of fine lines or if you feel like you have lost a lot of elasticity, then it may be time to start dermal fillers. During your initial consultation with Dr. price, he will go over which fillers he thinks will give you the best results.

Laser

From skin tone to texture, laser skin rejuvenation can treat a variety of different issues. If you want to really change your skin quality in 2019, then laser may be the ultimate way to do that.

 

Botox, fillers, and laser are just a few ways that you can get better-looking skin in 2019. If you want to learn a little bit more, contact our Guilford office and call us at (203) 453-6635.

3 Injections That Are Changing How We Age

Anti Aging Treatment Guilford, CTIt used to be that the only way to reverse some signs of aging was with surgical procedures like an eyelift or a facelift. And although surgical procedures are very effective, they do require a lengthy recovery. With the help of three specific injections and Dr. Gary J. Price, you can get a similar look without having to go under the knife.

Botox

Botox may as well be magic in our book and everybody elses’. By temporarily relaxing the muscles in the forehead and around the eyes, Botox softens fine lines and wrinkles which gives patients a more youthful looking appearance. On average, patients see full results after about 5-7 days and results usually last 3-5 months on average.

Fillers

To help ease fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and lips, and to help add more volume to the cheeks, Dr. Gary J. Price may recommend facial fillers. Unlike Botox which relaxes the muscles, fillers actually fill in the fine lines and wrinkles. Depending on the facial filler that you decide to go with, results may last the upwards of an entire year.

Kybella

Chin fat is another reason why patients in the past would opt to get surgical procedures like a neck lift or facelift. With Kybella, however, we can get rid of your chin fat with just a few injections. Once injected into the fat under the chin, Kybella works by dissolving it which, in turn, gives patients a more defined physique.

With a combination of Botox, fillers, and Kybella Dr. Gary J. Price can give patients a liquid facelift. During your initial consultation with Dr. Price, he will go over all of your options— surgical and nonsurgical— and help you decide which one best meets your needs.

Is Botox an Anti-Aging Tool?

BOTOX® Injection Guilford CT When it comes to anti-aging products, it can seem like you have a lot of tools in your toolbox. And although there are a variety of skin care products that you can use to help restore collagen in your skin and get rid of fine lines and wrinkles including skin care products that contain ingredients like retinol,  did you know that Botox can be considered an anti-aging tool as well? Let’s take a closer look.

How Does Botox Work As a Preventative Tool?

The more your face makes certain movements that creates wrinkles (smiling, frowning, sneezing, chewing) the more likely you are to get wrinkles. Botox works on a unique level and helps prevent your facial muscles from making certain movements which many doctors believe make it an anti-aging tool. Look at it this way: if you make a lot of facial movements on your forehead when you talk, this could lead to more forehead wrinkles. But when you get Botox injections, your facial muscles are temporarily unable to move which helps prevent against the wrinkles getting worse later on down the line.

When Should I Start Getting Botox?

Many doctors would agree that most patients in their twenties shouldn’t get Botox because they simply don’t need it yet. However, once you reach your thirties or start showing small signs of aging such as a few creases around your eyes, smile lines on your nose, or fine lines on your forehead, then you may need to start getting it. During your initial consultation with Dr. Gary J. Price, he will be able to better determine if you are a suitable candidate for Botox or if you should wait a little bit longer.

There’s a common misconception that Botox is only used as a way to help middle-aged women get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. But, Botox can actually be used as an anti-aging tool for both men and women as young as in their late twenties to early thirties depending on the patient.
