Top Anti-Aging Treatments

40 year old womanWhile many women use skin care products and take proper care of their skin from a very young age, by the time they are in their 40’s, wrinkles and fine lines are quite inevitable. However, with innovative non-surgical aesthetic dermatology procedures, it is very much possible to reverse the signs of aging and look fantastic in your 40’s.

Dr. Steven Zimmet is a highly trained and experienced cosmetic dermatologist providing advanced treatments and guidance to women and men seeking youthful looks in their 40’s and other age groups. Dr. Zimmet provides safe, effective and proven procedures to patients in Austin, TX and surrounding locations.

Non-Invasive Treatments

Many women and men in their 40’s want to look and feel their best, but they may not be ready for a plastic surgery procedure at this stage. In such cases, non-surgical skin care treatments may be offered to enhance appearance. If the patient has already undergone a surgery, these treatments can still serve to maintain the results for a longer period of time.

Non-invasive dermatology solutions can work wonders for a patient in their 40’s. Whether they wish to restore a smoother complexion, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face, or stimulate collagen to increase skin firmness, several suitable treatments are available today to achieve a patient’s aesthetic goals in a non-surgical way.

Some of the popular procedures for women and men in their 40’s include:

Most of these techniques involve multiple treatment sessions to achieve optimal results. These treatments can be combined with medical grade skin care products to support longer lasting outcomes. Dr. Zimmet is an experienced dermatologist receiving patients from Austin, TX and nearby areas for a variety of medical and aesthetic skin treatments.

Botox

Botox is the world’s most popular FDA approved non-surgical anti-aging facial treatment. Botox injections are based on a biological agent called botulinum toxin, which will relax the wrinkle forming muscles in the face. Patients can experience a smoother and younger looking facial skin for up to six months.

Dermal Fillers

After Botox, the second most sought-after facial anti-aging injectable treatment in the US is dermal fillers. Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane are some of the commonly used facial fillers. The filler gel is injected directly into the thinning or depleted areas of the face to achieve instant volumizing and sustainable skin firmness due to collagen stimulation.

Fraxel Laser

Fraxel laser skin resurfacing is an FDA cleared technology involving fractionated laser treatment to address various skin concerns. The gentle exposure to laser energy will diminish lines and wrinkles, promote fresh collagen production, and even reduce brown spots and pigmentation.

Chemical Peels

A wide range of light, medium and strong chemical peels can be customized to suit the specific needs of an individual in their 40’s. Conditions such as aging lines, melasma, sun damage, acne scars, uneven skin tone, and age spots can be treated effectively with chemical peels. While face is the most common area of treatment with peels, these can also be used on the neck, chest, hands, and other areas.

Chemical PeelModern life is stressful, and one of the first places where the stress shows up is your face. Combined with the rising pollution, this stress leads to dull, lifeless skin that makes you look older than your age and is also unhealthy for you. Proper skin care demands that this be taken care of, and one of the most popular ways to get rid of dull skin is getting a chemical peel.

Types of chemical peels

Chemical peel is a technique wherein chemicals are applied to the skin and left for a fixed amount of time. The time varies from a few hours to up to 14 days. In this time, the chemical peels off the skin, thereby removing dead cells and bringing fresh, youthful skin to the surface. It is a form of controlled chemical treatment as the dermatologist makes sure that the chemical is applied in the right areas and at the right concentration.

Dr. Steven Zimmet, dermatologist from Austin, TX tells us about the different kinds of peels you can get.

1. Superficial peels – These are mild peels generally containing glycolic acid or dry ice. This can be used on any skin type.

2. Medium peels – These peels go deeper into the skin and cause a 2nd degree burn of the skin. The agent used is trichloroacetic acid.

3. Deep peels – These are the strongest of all peel types and are used in extreme conditions. Also, remember that deep peels are not advised for people with darker colored skin as the chemicals used tend to bleach the skin. Even in case of fairer skin, deep peels are not used more than once as they can be  harmful.

Cost of the treatment

According to 2013 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a peel was $270. However, there is a lot of variation from state to state and this amount does not cover the following –

1. Anesthesia – The type of anesthesia you opt for will also be added to the cost discussed above. A local anesthesia is less costly than a general one.

2. Facility costs – The place where you get the peel also plays a part in the total cost of the treatment. A hospital will be more costly that a clinic.

3. Medications – Depending upon the type of peel you have used, the dermatologist will prescribe medications and you should remember to include this cost in the total.

Apart from these factors, the cost can also vary based on the qualification and experience of the person performing the procedure.

There are quite a few skin care precautions that you need to follow after you get a chemical peel. These include –

1. Clean the skin frequently. The frequency and material used to do so will be prescribed by your doctor.

2. Change the dressing regularly.

3. Keep the ski moisturized to avoid complications.

4. Avoid exposure to sun till the peel is not off completely and use sunscreen regularly once the peeling is done.

Advancements in the field of dermatology has brought to us the wonders of chemical peeling. It is a relatively simple and quick way to get younger looking skin and is much more effective than using creams and lotions. If you feel your skin is hiding your true age (the one you feel from inside), go ahead and try a chemical peel. You are sure to get a shot of confidence and discover a new you.

Skin Care Treatments - AustinAging, weather, sun exposure, stress, and illness can have an adverse impact on the skin, and make it look old and rough. An expert dermatologist such as Dr. Steven Zimmet emphasizes on the importance of skin care for both women and men in all age groups. He provides innovative and advanced skin care solutions at his dermatology practice in Austin, TX.

Chemical Peels

A wide range of chemical peels are available today, and it is up to the dermatologist and their team of aestheticians to recommend the most appropriate option for a particular patient to match with their individual aesthetic goals. An appropriate chemical peel treatment can help a person achieve a smoother, rejuvenated skin, and enhanced complexion. The SkinCeuticals Micropeel provided by Dr. Zimmet is designed to address large pores, wrinkles and fine lines, uneven skin tone and texture and other signs of sun damage.

The SkinCeuticals Micropeel Plus works more effectively on oily, blotchy and uneven skin to make it smoother, richer and preventing future breakouts at the same time. The Signature ZPeel aims to enhance the skin in a way that it gains a natural glow and appears firmer and brighter.

Laser Hair Removal

Zimmet Vein and Dermatology provides the options of electrolysis and laser based hair removal to help patients achieve long-term removal of unwanted body hair. Hair on the face, neck, arms, back, or bikini area can compromise the aesthetic appearance of a woman. Excessive hair may occur due to hormonal imbalances, genetic factors or other reasons.

For patients who are looking for more effective and long-term alternatives to shaving, waxing and tweezing, laser hair removal can be the right answer. Laser targets the dark pigmentation, and manages to remove unwanted hair from the root. The treatment is precise and does not cause damage to healthy surrounding skin. Electrolysis is another treatment option that is effective for both light and dark hair and patients of all complexions.

Skin Exfoliation with Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation technique that gently removes the top cellular layer of the skin to pave way for softer, smoother, more youthful skin. This advanced skin care treatment can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve coarser skin, and enhance skin tone and texture by removing the buildup of dead cells from the top layer of the skin.

The treatment is cost-effective and convenient, involving no downtime and quick recovery. Dr. Zimmet recommends this treatment to patients in and around Austin, TX if they are looking for a safe, gentle solution for skin exfoliation.

Skin Rejuvenation with GentleWaves

GentleWaves is a non-thermal LED based skin rejuvenation system designed to improve the condition of skin affected by sun exposure or other environmental factors. This non-surgical treatment involves a quick and painless treatment process that causes no injury to the skin surface.

Face, neck, and chest are the areas commonly treated with GentleWaves. The treatment does not involve any downtime, and there is no risk of side effects. Multiple treatments are usually required to achieve the best results.

As of February 2011, the unemployment rate for adult men was 8.7%.  With more male candidates fighting over fewer job opportunities, landing work in today’s economy is more than a resume boasting professional experience and a college degree. Economists Daniel Hamermesh and Jeff Biddle discovered that attractive men and women enjoy hourly earnings 5% higher than those with average looks in a paper entitled, “Beauty and the Labour Market”.  Simply put, looking good pays.

In 2010, 1.1 million cosmetic procedures were performed on men according to a recent report released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.  The number of cosmetic procedures is up 2% from 2009 and experts believe fierce job market competition is driving men to seek everything from Botox to chemical peels to Ultrashape.  Men in their forties, fifties, and sixties are getting passed over for job raises that are going to their younger colleagues.

Below are the five most popular male minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures for 2010:

1. Botox (337,000)

2. Laser Hair Removal (165,000)

3. Microdermabrasion (158,000)

4. Chemical Peel (90,000)

5. Soft Tissue Fillers (78,000)

Males account for 5-10% of patients Dr. Zimmet sees each year, with the number of visits growing.  The top reasons male patients seek out Dr. Zimmet are Botox and pulsed light rejuvenation.

Women are quick to forget that men, too, are judged by their appearance and physique.  Whether a trimmer waistline, a wrinkle-free forehead, or a rejuvenated face, a more youthful appearance has been proven to boost a man’s salary level, self-esteem, and love life.
