Top 6 Highest Recommended Anti-Aging Treatments in 2018

As the demand for shorter, gentler, more effective methods of body and facial rejuvenation grow stronger with time, sophisticated methods offering fast, longlasting results came into existence. The top six highest recommended anti-aging treatments in 2018 include CoolSculpting, micro-needling with SkinPen, dermal fillers, laser skin resurfacing with Active FX, Kybella, and Thermage. Each anti-aging treatment is tailored to the patient’s needs and subtly infuses age-defying changes that reshape the body, reduce redness, minimizes creases, and lightens discolorations.

1. CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting offers a revolutionary breakthrough in the world of noninvasive aesthetic medicine. It gently delivers fat reduction without the need to diet or exercise. Prior to this modern development, liposuction was the only successful way to eliminate stubborn fat effectively and safely without requiring patients to also embrace an exercise and diet program. In fact, CoolSculpting is recommended for stubborn fat pockets that aren’t readily eliminated by dieting or exercising.

CoolSculpting uses crylypolisis, a scientifically guided process, to eliminate fat cells by freezing them, effectively shaping the patient’s physical appearance to match their desired goals. The newest line of applicators delivers high-quality results in shorter treatment times, efficiently reducing the procedure to approximately one-half of the original hour needed to treat a single area. Bruising and discomfort have also been reduced as a result of newer technology.

Today, CoolSculpting is the most demanded anti-aging treatment in the world. The treatment is entirely noninvasive and requires little, if any, downtime for recovery. In fact, most patients are able to resume their daily activities within minutes of undergoing this noninvasive treatment that takes as little as 35 minutes. CoolSculpting is perfect for people who simply want to reduce stubborn fat areas beneath the chin or on the back of the arms. It is also the ideal solution for people who wish to reduce the size of their waists.

2. Micro-needling with SkinPen

Micro-needling with SkinPen is a popular procedure that is FDA-cleared for clinical use in treating facial acne scars in adults who are 22 years of age or older. Its popularity stems from the fact that it is minimally invasive and highly effective in growing new facial skin leading to a more natural appearance.

Micro-needling with SkinPen reduces the appearance of facial scars, shrinks enlarged pores, and minimizes the appearance of stretch marks. It can improve the firmness of the skin as well as its texture, successfully restoring a youthful appearance. Visible results can last up to six months.

During the micro-needling process, fine needles puncture the skin minimally to produce small, controlled skin damage that stimulates renewed production of elastin and collagen. Collagen and elastin are proteins that help provide healthy structure for the skin, allowing it to resist the development of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging.

3. The Latest in Dermal Fillers and Techniques

Filling in facial folds and creases with dermal fillers is nothing new. However, the techniques used to do so are newer, leading to shorter treatment times and faster recovery. Facial or soft tissue fillers are injected directly beneath the skin’s surface. They are designed to smooth out common problem areas forming around the lips and eyes as well as on the forehead. The three primary methods used today include liquid facelift, lip enhancement, and Botox.

A non-invasive full-face rejuvenation is most commonly called a liquid facelift. It is designed to improve the firm and supple nature of skin in order to correct skin laxity and minimize the development and appearance of facial wrinkles. The aging process typically diminishes volume in the face, skull, and jaw due to the loss of bone mass as well as fat loss. Detrimental skin changes also play an important role in facial aging. A liquid facelift is designed to successfully address these issues in order to restore a more natural appearance.

The treatment combines the use of dermal fillers with muscle relaxers in order to achieve the appearance of a facelift without resorting to surgery. Injections are often made beneath the eyes, along the jawline, and in the cheeks, nose, temples, glabella, chin, and forehead. Results typically last for one to two years.

Lip enhancement is the term given to the cosmetic treatment designed to restore plumpness to the lips. This type of procedure restores hydration to the lips, readily creating renewed plumpness and diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and creases. Typically, the borders of the lips become more naturally defined, regaining their symmetrical appearance. Dermal fillers designed for this specific purpose include Juvederm, Volbella and Restylane. The results often last up to 12 months.

Botox is a purified protein delivered through injections. Not only is Botox successful in banishing wrinkles and fine lines from the face, but it is commonly recommended as a treatment for a wide assortment of medical issues. Botox is commonly used to treat the frequent occurrence of migraines, excessive sweating under the arms, uncontrolled drooling, and muscular disorders such as muscle stiffness and spasms. Botox is often injected to remedy a number of bladder disorders, including overactive and leaking bladder, as well as a variety of eye disorders, including uncontrolled blinking and crossed eyes.

Different forms of botulinum toxin solutions are used, depending on the problem being addressed. The injection site also varies according to the issue being treated. For example, when treating frequent migraines, a trained professional injects the muscles of the neck and head.

When used cosmetically, Botox injections are highly effective in treating facial creases ranging in severity from moderate to intense. It blocks signals between the nerves and facial muscles in order to diminish the visibility of frown lines and crow’s feet. Tiny injections are placed directly into muscle tissue. Facial lines fade because muscle movement diminishes as the nerves become restricted. The results are temporary but should last approximately four to six months.

4. Laser Skin Resurfacing with Active FX

Fighting the signs of aging often involves treating a variety of skin issues, including acne scarring, skin discoloration, fine lines, sagging, enlarged pores, and wrinkles. Fractional laser resurfacing has risen in popularity, partly because of its flexibility in creating noticeably visible results in all of these areas. Plus, it is less painful than dermabrasion and chemical peels.

Laser Skin Resurfacing with Active FX uses powerful fractional laser technology to gently remove upper layers of skin and stimulate collagen production. As a result, new skin growth is firm and tight, allowing it to resist unwanted changes such as creasing and wrinkling. Due to enhanced collagen production, your skin looks plumper than it did prior to your Active FX treatment.

Fractional laser resurfacing produces excellent outcomes with minimal recovery time. Most patients require only a single treatment. Given proper skin care, the results of laser skin resurfacing last for several years.

5. Kybella – Jawline Rejuvenation

As people age, fat develops in unwanted places. When it does so beneath the jawline, it sags visibly enough to look like a second chin. A non-invasive anti-aging treatment, Kybella gently eliminates the fat creating the appearance of a double chin. In addition to minimizing the fullness of the area beneath the chin line, Kybella improves the tightness of the skin by stimulating the renewed production of collagen.

Kybella is a once-and-done procedure that provides permanent results. It eliminates the fat forever from this area, restoring the natural appearance of the jawline and delivering a younger countenance.

6. Thermage

Thermage embraces deep-heating technology to tighten and contour the skin. No injections are needed, and surgery is not involved during this skin-tightening procedure, which is entirely noninvasive. One of its benefits is that it works well on all skin tones and types, unlike lasers. In most cases, minimal or no downtime occurs, allowing patients to resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure is performed. Typically, only mild side effects are experienced, and they may include minor blistering, swelling, or redness.

Thermage treatments use Capacitive Radio Frequency technology, also known as CRF technology, to heat all three layers of skin, successfully stimulating collagen production in order to tighten the skin’s appearance. Skin texture and tone also noticeably improve during this noninvasive procedure. Thermage treatments produce continuous enhancement in collagen production, creating ongoing improvement in the tightness of the skin for as long as four to six months. This anti-aging procedure takes place during a single, pain-free session. Thermage treatments are available for many areas of the body, including the stomach, buttocks, legs, arms, hands, neck, face, chin, and eyelids.

Looking younger is a popular goal among people of all ages. Today, it is easier than ever to accomplish this task, partly because so many non-invasive anti-aging solutions are readily available at medical spas throughout the San Diego area.
