Top 3 Anti Aging Techniques Available Today
Women have been trying to fight the hands of time since the beginning of time! Some women just let themselves age gracefully, letting the hair go gray, trying not to care about the wrinkles and the effects of gravity, while others dig their heels in and spend their middle age buying cream and suffering through surgeries and injections to try and hold off old age. Do any of these anti aging techniques really work? Or are they all money making schemes designed to pull you in? I would say that a majority of the anti aging products you see advertised are not really going to do anything for you but take your hard earned money. There are a few procedures that do work however, and the top 3 were recently discussed on Oprah, by her guest, Dr. Karyn Grossman, a practicing Dermatologist.
The newest procedure of the 3 is called Thread Lift, and it takes about an hour to complete. The patient does not need to go under the knife for this face lift like procedure, and it is not too painful to endure. When someone gets this procedure done, tiny strings are inserted underneath the facial skin and they act as pulleys, pulling the skin on the face tighter. These strings actually stay inside of the person’s skin, making it easy to repeat the procedure when the skin falls again. Dr. Grossman recommends this method for patients who want to tighten up their neck or fix any jowling problems.
The second top anti aging technique is fat transfer. This one may not sound very appetizing, but many people have done it and are satisfied with the results. Recent studies have shown that instead of always pulling skin up for anti aging, it might work better to fill the sagging or sinking skin instead. This is what a fat transfer does. They take fat out of some place in your body where you don’t want it, and inject it into the problem area. This is a good procedure because the injections don’t have all sorts of foreign materials in them – you are just getting what your body already has in the first place!
Hylaform is the third technique for anti aging that was discussed on Oprah. Hylaform is also a filler, and it is made from hylanic acid. This stuff is usually injected into areas such as the lips, nose and wrinkled areas of the face. When you get older, your lips tend to get thinner and sometimes your nose can develop what is called labial folds, and Hylaform can plump up these areas and make you look younger.
You can get these 3 procedures done at a plastic surgeon’s office, and they can be pretty expensive. If you can’t afford to get these things done, you may want to try a product called Intensive Rebuilding Moisturizer. It acts as a filler as well, but it costs less that the injections and surgical procedures.
