Keeping your skin flexible and firm are worthy skin-care goals for everyone. The proteins Collagen and Elastin play a very important role in meeting those goals. You’ve no doubt heard of them, read about them and may have wondered what they are.
As you age, your body has less of these critical proteins, and, as a result, your skin becomes loose, saggy and thin. It also damages more easily and is more susceptible to the effects of gravity. Fine lines and wrinkles appear, oh dear, and your skin may sag, which creates the appearance of jowls or a double chin.
It’s impossible to completely prevent the effects of aging, but there are some things you can do to protect the collagen and elastin in your body and keep your skin looking young for as long as possible.
• Eat A Balanced Diet
• Stop Smoking
• Avoid UV and UVB Sun Damage
• Replenish Collagen – We offer a number of cosmetic treatments that can counter the effects of aging.
Some of our most popular dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, use substances to restore lost volume to your face and smooth your skin. Others, such as Radiesse®, stimulate your body’s production of collagen, for natural, and long-lasting results.
