The signs of aging are more prominent on your face than any other area of your body. Exposure to the elements, pollution, changes in hormone levels, genetics, and improper care can all contribute to accelerated aging of the skin on your face.
There are several ways Brian Evans MD suggests to help under this facial aging, from changed diet and exercise routines, to injections of fat or stem cells, to plastic surgery procedures such as a facelift.
Diet, Exercise, and Other Habits
A daily skincare regimen can go a long way in preventing or treating the signs of aging from appearing on your face, as well as a diet that includes plenty of water, vegetables, fruits, whole grain, and lean proteins. “Some research suggests that a diet rich in vitamin C and low in unhealthy fats and processed or refined carbohydrates might promote younger looking skin.”1 In addition to a healthy diet, avoiding sun damage, unnecessary stress, and smoking can also make a difference in the way your skin looks.
Stem Cells or Fat Injections
An injection of fat or stem cells into the facial tissue can produce more noticeable, immediate results. This treatment involves taking stem cells from the patient’s fat cells and injecting it into the soft tissue of their face. It restores the youthful look of the patient’s face by filling in the small creases and wrinkles that make people look aged..
For the most extreme cases of facial aging, a facelift might be a necessary step on the road to looking younger. A facelift is a surgical procedure that tightens the skin in order to smooth out wrinkles and creases. A facelift can be combined with other surgical procedures in order to produce optimal results.
