We prioritize helping patients look as young as they feel with anti-aging treatments and skin care at Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center. Now, studies are stating that these anti-aging strategies may have an effect on more than just looks. According to Marian Northington, M.D., director of Cosmetic Dermatology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, research has shown some dermatologic skin-improvement methods, such as fillers, may have psychological benefits beyond an enhanced appearance.
Northington noted, “people who have had facial fillers reported they felt they make a better first impression with other people, but they also feel better with themselves and happier.” At Laser Lights, we offer several facial rejuvenation and fine line/wrinkle treatments, including FDA- approved Restylane®, Juvéderm®, and Radiesse®.
Another professor within the school stressed the importance of having realistic expectations from anti-aging treatments. Keeping the notation of looking younger within reason can lead to a healthier mental state. They also noted the balance required between physical and mental health and satisfaction, reminding people that “feeling good about who you are, independent of what you look like, is a far more powerful way to have and keep high self-esteem.”
Laser Lights’ anti-aging treatments work to provide the important component of this balance by making you feel confident with your appearance. In order to empower our patients to feel confident and healthy, our staff will work with you to find the best anti-aging treatment to suit your needs. Remember that the best anti-aging strategy available is prevention. While aging is a natural process, sun spots and excessive wrinkles can be lessened by wearing 30 SPF or higher broad-spectrum sunscreen each day.
To determine your antioxidant level, which has a direct effect on the rate at which you age, we also offer scans with our Pharmanex BioPhotonic Antioxidant Scanner. Our cells’ health determines the overall health of our bodies, and to reduce signs of aging, diminish illnesses, and prevent disease, they must be treated properly. Based on your antioxidant levels, we may recommend nutritional supplements to complement proper skin care and cosmetic anti-aging treatments.
