Anti Aging

The concept of anti aging is not a new one, not by any means. If you read back through history you will rather quickly uncover plenty of ‘research’ into the field, though their ideas were more than a bit different. One of the most interesting ideas was that of the fountain of youth, a physical location in which one could take a drink and become cured of the aging ‘disease’. Was the fountain of youth ever discovered? That is actually a matter of debate but right now, we know that it does not exist, at least not in recent  memory. Instead, we have turned to other methods and have worked to create remedies that will give us the youth that we desire. There are now so many different methods of anti-aging that it can be very difficult to keep track.

If you take a look at store shelves today you will quickly find creams, pills, and other products intended to stop or reverse the aging process. It should be noted that while they work to an extent, many of them are simply concealers – they do make you look younger, yes, but they are only masking the problem temporarily. If that is something you can live with, then go ahead, but if the solution you are looking for  runs a little bit deeper, then you might want to consider Botox or one of the dermal filler treatments.

Why we Age

There are many things about aging that remain a mystery. While we cannot stop the biological clock, we can actually stop or slow the process that makes us look old. For some this might not be enough, but for the moment, it is all we have. As we grow older we tend to expose ourselves to elements that wear down or deplete the elastin within our skin. Other elements, such as collagen, will also pay the price, leading to saggy skin, and ultimately a less than pleasant aesthetic. There are steps you can take to avoid aging, for example, wearing sunscreen to keep your skin away from nature’s wrath. No matter what we do however, we will eventually begin to degrade, and the need for routine medical procedures will become very apparent.

Other aging factors include the use of facial muscles. For example, smiling and frowning will cause a depletion of the elements within our faces, and you will begin to see the result of this in laugh or frown lines. Fortunately, Botox or dermal fillers can address this problem as well.

Stepping Back

There is nothing quite like stepping back and becoming the person that you were – the person that you are meant to be. These solutions and procedures are very simple and will help to get you on your way with very little interruption of your daily life. It’s time to stop dreaming about being a younger person once again, and time to start living that dream. Modern science and medicine has made it possible if you have the initiative!
