When it comes to aging, there is only so much we can do to keep wrinkles, sagginess, and age spots away. In addition to a healthy lifestyle, many women also opt for cosmetic improvements to turn back the hands of time. While there is no substitute for getting the proper nutrition and exercise our bodies need to stay youthful, cosmetic options like ultherapy can significantly improve the look of wrinkles and sagging skin that have crept up over time.

So what is ultherapy, exactly?

Ultherapy is a cosmetic procedure that firms and tightens the skin without the need for invasive surgery. Many women opt for ultherapy treatments when a traditional facelift is undesired. Skin is treated with powerful ultrasound beams that can modify skin tissue, leading to a firmer and more youthful appearance.

Because ultherapy works within the deepest layers of the skin, results are significant. When women want to age gracefully without looking “done” and without having to undergo plastic surgery, ultherapy can be the ideal choice to reverse the signs of aging in addition to a healthy lifestyle.

Women who undergo ultherapy can expect results between 3 to 6 months. To find out if you’re a good candidate for ultherapy, call my office at (800) 515-7753 and schedule your consultation.

Your health matters: Doctor’s tips on aging gracefully

Ultherapy is a great option for women who want a more youthful look without the downsides of plastic surgery. But what if you could capture your youth for longer by making a few changes to your lifestyle?

When it comes to aging gracefully, a new study tells us there is more to good health than meets the eye. According to a report at the Washington Post, aging well is achieved through a combination of lifestyle changes that, when implemented, can lead to a younger-looking, healthier, and more vivacious version of you.

The study points to cell development processes within our body. Scientists have confirmed that as we age, our cellular processes eventually decline, leading to slower metabolisms, reflexes, and, yes – wrinkles and sagging skin. But it doesn’t have to always be that way according to experts. With the right combination of diet, exercise, and reduced stress, people can slow down the aging process.

Let’s start with food. What we eat influences our internal functions to a great degree. And it’s not just the pounds that a poor diet can pack on. Eating low quality foods can increase the production of “free radicals” in our systems. Free radicals are unstable electrons that can cause damage to our cells, leading to increased signs of aging inside and out.

Stress is another culprit. Most people are already aware of the negative effects that stress has on the body. When our lives are strenuous, our faces can look tired, aged, and dull.

Take a hold of your health – and your aging for that matter – and consider the following tips to jump-start your anti-aging regimen. In addition to ultherapy, these three tips can help you look and feel younger.

Your mom was right: eating your vegetables is a good idea. But it’s not just a healthy diet that matters – the way you cook your food can actually impact the way you age. Stay away from high-temperature cooking since high heat can cause foods to develop “advanced glycation end products” – or AGEs. These toxic compounds can generate free radicals within our bodies, significantly accelerating the aging process. Processed and fast foods are saturated with AGEs and should be avoided. Try baking your foods at home instead.

2. Easy exercises

You don’t have to be a hyper-athlete to get the proper exercise your body needs to be healthy. Just 15 minutes a day can contribute significantly to your overall health, mood, and stress levels. Consider a brisk morning walk or jumping jacks three times daily to get your body moving and blood pumping. A study at the PLOS Medical Journal said that participants who exercised at least 15 minutes a day lived at least two years longer.

3. Relaxing

Spend some quality time with yourself and reap the rewards. Studies show that stress-reduction is largely in proportion to the amount of time you spend on leisurely activities. Learn a new hobby, take a nap on the weekends, or spend time outdoors. Relaxing leads to lowered hypertension and fewer addictive behaviors according to a 2012 study published at the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health.
