Whether you’re booking up BOTOX appointments or heading off for a microdermabrasion treatment, your age plays an important role in the results of your procedure. That’s what experts at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) conference explained during a discussion about cosmetic surgery for aging skin in 2007, shedding some light on how each decade in life correlates to dramatically different results in most patients.

As more and more people turn to cosmetic enhancements and plastic surgery to improve their appearance the latest trend reports show that age really is just a number. Aging gracefully has become a top priority for baby boomers, especially those who are approaching their 50s – and beyond.

If you have frequent breakouts or excess facial hair, laser hair removal and microdermabrasion techniques may not be effective for creating a smooth, youthful look. Dermaplaning offers one alternative for people who are not getting results with microdermabrasion, and is designed to remove the dead skin cells on the top layer of skin using a small surgical blade. This is a non-invasive procedure that gently removes the top layer of skin to leave it looking smooth, vibrant and hair-free.

Few wrinkles around the eyes, a smooth forehead and perfectly arched eyebrow are the ideal mix for a youthful appearance, but the most common signs of premature aging often appear in these key areas. Sculpting the upper face to be smooth and wrinkle-free, and shaping your eyebrows to achieve the perfect arch can create a dramatic change to your appearance – and all without extensive surgery.

Nearly 12 million cosmetic procedures were performed in 2007, with breast augmentation, liposuction and nose reshaping procedures ranking in the top ten. Still, many Americans chose a minimally-invasive treatment to improve their appearance, turning to BOTOX and microdermabrasion to fight the signs of aging and restore their youthful looks.
