Three Ways Your Face Is Aging You & What You Can Do About It

hunsicker-face-aging-imageWe can’t stop the clock from ticking. It is no secret that our face and skin change as the minutes, hours, days, and years pass. Fortunately for us, anti-aging treatments continue to improve and become more effective. Thanks to new technologies, we now have the ability to stop, reverse, and even turn back the hands of time when it comes to aging.

Tired Eyes

The thin skin around the eyes is extremely delicate and thus, our eyes are one of the first and most noticeable facial features to age. Drooping eyelids, dark circles, and under eye bags can all have a huge effect on how old you look. While fine lines and wrinkles (think crow’s feet) can be softened with non-surgical treatments like Botox®, more advanced aging of the eyes is best resolved through plastic surgery. Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) combats droopy eyelids and excessive under eye puffiness by surgically lifting the skin and muscles around the eyes and ultimately, restoring a youthful, wide-eyed look. Depending on your unique needs, Dr. Hunsicker is able to perform upper and/or lower blepharoplasty.

A Changing Complexion

Our skin changes as we age. Slower regeneration combines with years of sun damage to take a toll on healthy, young-looking complexions. Sun spots (aptly called “age spots”), discoloration, and uneven texture can make our skin look worse for wear. Physical exfoliation in the form of dermaplaning or chemical peels sloughs away dull and dead skin while encouraging skin cell renewal. To treat sun spots and discoloration, Dr. Hunsicker may suggest a minimally invasive laser treatment such as IPL+ Color Correction Radio Frequency (RF). Targeting melanin, IPL + evens out the complexion by targeting dark spots and redness.

Sagging Skin

As the clock ticks on, our skin makes a gradual slide downward. Sagging, drooping skin is a major problem for many men and women here in Denver. Whereas a facelift was once the gold standard when it came to addressing sagging skin, there are now a few minimally invasive treatments that can elevate and address lax skin. Dermal fillers including Juvéderm® and Voluma® XC restore facial fullness and bring a subtle lift to the cheeks. Dr. Hunsicker also loves the power of Sublime™ Skin Contouring for a quick lift without downtime! This unique laser treatment combines laser light energy with radiofrequency energy to stimulate the production of new collagen growth to gradually lift and tighten skin around the lower face including the jowls.
