It’s no secret that 50 is the new 30. We feel stronger and more vital, and we look much younger than our parents and grandparents did at the same age.
(Have you checked the family photo album lately? Was that really your grandmother when she was your age? OMG! How old she looks!)
A far bigger secret is how some people manage to stay so far ahead of the pack. You probably know someone like this: She always looks elegant and toned; her skin and her face are those of a much younger person. People routinely mistake her for someone her daughter’s age!
At the Ageless Society, we make it our business to collect news and information about the latest breakthroughs in anti-aging technology so that we can deliver the goods to you. We follow up on every new development, trend or breakthrough in the anti-aging field.
So here’s an update: five top therapies to help keep you at your personal zenith.
1. IV Nutritional Infusion
Scientists agree: We are what we eat. The body cannot maintain its peak condition and youthful good looks without better-than-adequate nutrition.
Eating nutritious meals is all very well, but let’s be realistic. Who has time to prepare every meal from scratch, to shop every day for the freshest ingredients, to scientifically combine nutrients and calories to achieve optimum vitality? Contemporary lifestyles seem to defy these goals.
That’s why busy, knowledgeable consumers are increasingly turning toprofessional IV nutritional therapy to ensure that their needs are met– every day, completely. No wonder: It’s quick, effective, and efficient.
Nutritional IV therapy starts with a blood analysis to determine your individual deficiencies. You may be lacking in B vitamins, which are essential in combating stress. You may need vitamin C to fight disease and bolster the immune system. Maybe it’s a hormonal imbalance that’s keeping you from feeling you’re operating at peak.
Whatever your particular needs, a cocktail can be designed with those needs in mind.
2. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Injections
Another impressive new therapy is Platelet Rich Plasma therapy. PPR therapy has been used for decades in hospital settings to speed healing after surgery. It has since made its way to the clinic for aesthetic purposes.
Quite simply, PPR involves using the body’s own plasma– no risk of infection here– to repair damaged tissue and reverse the effects of aging. PPR has many adherents in professional sports. Tiger Woods, for instance, is a believer; as well as Alex Rodriguez and a host of others.
Today, PPR is a standard tool in the arsenal of our cosmetic clinicians. After being extracted from your own body and separated in a centrifuge, the plasma– which is rich in platelets, a natural source of growth factors– is re-injected into your tissue. The result is rejuvenated tissue that looks like the fresh skin you had a decade ago.
PRP injections are a truly modern miracle, harnessing the body’s own power to enhance your well-being and good looks.
3. Micro-needling to Stimulate Collagen
Collagen, as you probably know, is the connective tissue that makes skin look elastic and firm. As we grow older, our bodies make less collagen (and its cousin, elastin) which leads to sagging and wrinkles.
Micro-needling therapy employs a fine-tipped device that stimulates the cells beneath the top layers of the skin, resulting in increased production of collagen and elastin. This treatment is more effective and less invasive than laser skin resurfacing.
Because it employs the body’s own natural process to create new and firm tissue, there is no risk of infection and patients report a very quick recovery time. Within hours, the skin begins to look firmer and rosier, with that healthy glow we associate with youth. In fact, it’s so easy that it can be done in the privacy of your own home.
4. Vampire Facelift
Despite the gruesome name, a vampire facelift is more natural and painless than most other treatments. The reason for the nickname is simple: Vampire therapy uses PRP therapy from the patient’s own blood n combination with dermal fillers to regenerate facial tissue.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a technique for withdrawing the patient’s blood (as described above), separating it in a centrifuge, and then injecting the platelets from that blood back into the facial area. This technique is ideal for sun-damaged and thinning skin– especially for eye and lip areas where the skin has those very fine lines so strongly associated with aging.
The treatment also uses dermal fillers to plump up tissue in the cheeks and jowls. It takes about 45 minutes, and results will last for weeks or months after treatment.
5. Vampire Facial
A related treatment– increasingly popular– is to treat the surface skin of the face with PRP and microneedling. Instead of stimulating collagen, this therapy targets the superficial layers of the skin.
Vampire facials are ideal for polishing and brushing up skin that looks sallow, or that’s lost its youthful glow. Are you tired of scars, sunspots, and freckles that don’t seem to go away? This is the treatment for you.
Everyone knows that facial skin is a major indicator of age. As young and energetic and sexy as you are, nothing says ‘grandma’ like a mottled complexion.
There is no excuse these days for an appearance that exceeds your years. In fact, looking 10 or 15 years younger is within everyone’s reach. The trick is to keep yourself abreast of developments in the anti-aging field, and choose wisely among the various therapies and options.
Inhabitants of 21st century America have the best of both worlds. We have all of the stress, pollutants, toxins, hectic lifestyle, and pressures of the modern world. But we also have access to the most advanced technology for defeating those adversaries.
At the Ageless Society, we make it our business to bring you the safest, most effective remedies, to help you stay as young and vital as you feel.
The rest, as they say, is up to you.
