Aging is a natural process that everyone must go through at some point in their lives. While certain signs of aging are more noticeable than others, there is a wide range of treatment options available to address these concerns. Find out the three most common signs of aging, and which treatment options are recommended to address them, by reading more below.
A common sign of aging is hair loss. While anyone can lose their hair, it is a sign of aging that most often affects men. It is natural to lose your hair as you age, but certain factors like genetics, hormonal changes, or medical conditions can trigger an increased loss of hair. While the most common form of hair loss is thinning hair on the top of your head, hair loss can look like receding hairlines, a more visible part, a more visible scalp, or noticeable hair loss when showering or brushing your hair. The earlier hair loss is addressed, the more effective hair loss treatment plans can be. If you feel that your hair is becoming thinner or notice any of these signs we recommend scheduling a consultation for hair restoration treatment to evaluate the condition of your scalp and hair.
Caused by the deterioration or reduction of collagen and elastin in the dermis, skin sagging is another common sign of aging. Skin sagging occurs because both elastin and collagen production decline as people age. Additionally, these two proteins can also become deteriorated by external factors over time such as too much sun exposure and not taking care of your skin or health. Weight loss can also lead to sagging skin. At Center For SmartLipo & Plastic Surgery, we offer a wide range of non-surgical options to rejuvenate facial skin including Botox, Dysport, Juvéderm, and more. For repairing sagging skin on the rest of your body, consider body contouring options like EMScuplt or ThermiTight.
Varicose veins, or veins that show through your skin, usually on your legs, are another common sign of aging. Faulty valves in the venous system cause your veins to swell, leading to unattractive and often painful bulges just below the surface of the skin. People who have had jobs that require prolonged sitting or standing are most prone to varicose vein development. Treating these unsightly veins, though, is easier and more affordable than ever before. With Laser Spider Vein Treatment, we can quickly remove spider veins and small clusters of veins along the legs. For larger veins that bulge, like varicose veins, sclerotherapy is most effective. With sclerotherapy, your doctor will inject a solution into the veins, causing them to collapse and diminish in appearance after a brief period of time.
