You have earned every single year of your age, and you should proudly own each one of them! What you don’t have to own, however, are some of the common signs of aging that can be easily treated. You can choose to look your very best at every age. Here are some signs of aging that you don’t have to accept.
Wrinkles are there to show the world that you have lived, worked, laughed, and loved. They can be beautiful in their own right. However, if you have unsightly wrinkles that are bringing you down, you have a wealth of options to try. Start with non-invasive measures, such as drinking more water, cleaning up your diet, sleeping on your back, and using a quality wrinkle cream. If those don’t work, ask your dermatologist about the innovative treatments available now. Botox injections are still highly effective, but there are other in-office treatments such as microdermabrasion and dermabrasion. If you are ready for a surgical treatment, there are many types of facelift procedures available.
If you have condemned yourself to wearing pants for the rest of your life because of varicose veins, it is time to show some leg! You don’t have to suffer the painful and unsightly effects of these gnarly, enlarged veins. This is not just a cosmetic issue. Varicose veins can lead to long-term swelling, sores forming on the legs, and a constant burning or aching feeling in your legs. To keep your varicose veins from getting worse, maintain a proper weight and stay active. Many people find relief by elevating the legs several times a day and wearing compression stockings. However, if you just want them gone, you have options. Laser treatment or sclerotherapy can treat varicose veins.
Age spots are a normal part of aging, and they are not indicative of any health concerns. However, they can keep you from feeling great about how you look—and everyone deserves to feel great about the way they look! Age spots are simply a patch of melanin that collects in the skin, often due to frequent sun exposure. The good news is that age spots can be reversed with chemical peels and laser treatments. Used alongside a special skincare regime, these treatments are highly effective.
You can age gracefully by combining your natural beauty with a little bit of help here and there. There is no shame in wanting to look your best. Luckily, we live in an age when medical professionals can help us do just that.
