How to Treat the Normal Affects of Aging


As we age, we begin to notice many things changing about our appearance. Our skin develops frown lines and gets more wrinkled. We may notice sun spots on our skin, as well. Our hair becomes thinner and whiter. We find it harder to lose weight and we notice looser skin on many parts of our bodies. We may even notice a double chin, that was not present before. Fortunately, with medical advances in science and medicine, there are many low risk options available for those who are uncomfortable with their appearances as they age. Many signs of aging can be fixed with low cost, low risk and low invasive procedures. These procedures are safer than ever, and provide long lasting results that can increase your self confidence levels.

The skin is one of the most noticeable changes to our bodies as we age. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, more than 90% of the visible changes commonly attributed to skin aging are caused by the sun. We spend many hours throughout our lives in the sun. Although products such as sun screens and even protective clothing can help block out some of the sun?s rays, some sun damage is not possible to prevent. Botox injections can help to firm the skins tightness and can even reduce the appearance of other things, such as a double chin. Laser skin treatments can help with color spots, such as sun spots and uneven skin colors.

Other skin problems might include acne scarring and fine lines. Acne is generally thought to be an adolescent problem, but it can affect our bodies as we age and our hormones change. Nearly 85% of people have acne at some point in their lives. It usually starts in puberty but can affect people into their 20?s, 30?s, 40?s and even 50s. In fact, in 2004, people spent $2.2 billion to treat acne. It is not a rare problem and it can really affect self confidence when we have acne as an adult due to hormonal changes. Many dermatology experts can help with providing a solution to adult acne.

Those who are dealing with hair loss or hair thinning can find results in some products. However, the products are generally not long term, and can be quite pricey. Once you stop using the product, the results also stop. Hair transplants are a more long term solution to hair loss and hair thinning. Many anti aging products may claim to add hair, but this just is not possible. Most of these products simply add volume to the hair, tricking you to feel like you have more hair. Hair transplants actually add to the volume of the hair, giving you longer and fuller hair.

There are many things that happen to our bodies as we age. We notice that our skin is not as tight and we hold onto more fat. We also find it more difficult to lose that weight, no matter how much we work out. We may look into the mirror and see a face with permanent sun damage and even adult acne. We might also see a double chin. All of these things can bring down our self confidence, but thankfully, there are low cost and low risk options to solve them.
