The Top Three Options For A More Youthful Appearance

Stem cell therapy

Everyone has something that they would like to change about their appearance. It’s human nature to pursue perfection — and while exact perfection may be impossible to achieve, you have the right to look the way you want to. People often think that plastic surgery has to be invasive, and for that matter that it’s a shallow pursuit. For one thing, looking your best on the outside often means that you’ll feel better inside. The pursuit of looking youthful also often involves diet, exercise, and other healthy lifestyle choices. This means that your overall health can be improved through your efforts to improve your appearance. Of course, there is more to bettering your appearance than simply thinking of the most obvious possible treatment and going for it. The fact is that there are many different treatment options when it comes to revitalizing a person’s skin. And while one treatment may be right for you, it isn’t going to be right for everyone. Different treatments are for different problems and different target areas — a fact that shouldn’t be ignored. Let’s look into some of the different types of treatments available, and how they can help you.

1. Botox Injections

Botox injections are among the most well-known types of non-surgical cosmetic treatments in the world. However, this doesn’t mean that there aren’t plenty of misconceptions out there about them. Many people think that Botox injections are something that they aren’t confusing them for fillers. Often, people think of people with famously botched Botox injections, and are dissuaded from getting them. Botox moves to paralyze the muscles of the sites in which the injections are administered. This prevents the creation of fine lines and wrinkles, both in the long term and the short term. Typically, the average age of a Botox patient is between 40 and 59 years old. With that being said, you don’t have to be any particular age to receive Botox injections. Sometimes, they are even done preventatively. Many are pleased with Botox injections, with 82% of people seeing results within a week. Although they last long — for an average time of four months — they’re not permanent. Therefore, if you find that they aren’t for you, you are not “stuck” with them permanently. However, if Botox is properly administered, many find that is the equivalent of a non-surgical facelift.

2. Fillers

As previously mentioned, fillers are often seen as an alternative to Botox — to the point that some are confused about which is which. Where Botox is about paralyzing muscles temporarily, fillers, as the name suggests, fill in wrinkles and hollows. They address fine lines and sunken areas on the face, and come in a variety of different types. One of the most popular types of fillers are hyaluronic acid fillers. Over 1.8 million hyaluronic acid-based filler treatments were done in 2014, in the form of Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Perlane, and Restylane. With a low pain level — on average rated a 1.5 out of five — and great results, fillers are excellent options for those looking for a fuller, softer, and younger look.

3. Platelet Rich Plasma Injections

There was a time when platelet rich plasma injections were largely or even solely used to kick-start the healing process after muscle injuries. Essentially, these injections input healing plasma into the body. This has been seen to have a youthful, revitalizing effect on people, and is perhaps more subtle than the above mentioned treatments. If you don’t want a dramatic effect, and lack specific places that you want treated, you should consider this type of treatment. The great thing about PRP injections is that not only do they have an effect on appearance, but they also can affect your overall health and feeling.

Now that you know you have options, hopefully you can move towards the right treatment. With these kinds of benefits, you’ll be amazed by the effect a few simple treatments can have on your health and looks.
