By the year 2015, 45% of the U.S. population will be 50 or older. However, staying healthy has become a prevalent trend for this age group. 82% of adults 50 and older use the Internet to research health and wellness. Since 1987, the amount of Americans heading to the gym age 55 and up has increased 266% (making it the fastest growing age group among gym members). Over the next decade, U.S. baby boomers will spend $1 trillion dollars on wellness-based services, a significant increase from the previous amount of $200 million.
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.
Eating the right foods can not only help you maintain a healthy weight, but can also be an effective way to keep your skin glowing and looking youthful. Diets rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants can help to keep the skin clear and resilient, and can even increase skin elasticity. When combined with a skin rejuvenation treatment, you can expect to ward off lines and wrinkles and improve the tone and texture of your skin.
The telltale signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin can be corrected with a number of skin rejuvenation treatments. Many people resort to facial rejuvenation procedures such as laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels and other non-ablative methods to get rid of or diminish fine lines and wrinkles, and achieve clearer, more youthful looking skin.
The secret to turning back the clock has yet to be discovered, but improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and boosting natural collagen production are a few ways to take control of aging skin – and maybe stop that clock from ticking.
While millions of Americans continue to pursue BOTOX treatments to remove frown lines and reduce wrinkles around the eyes, injectable fillers and hybrid filler treatments are also helping ward off the signs of aging.
Are you considering BOTOX or other dermal fillers to get rid of wrinkles and achieve those youthful looks? You may not have to settle for injectables just yet; Glamotox offers an alternative solution to dermal fillers and wrinkle removal treatments, an over the counter product designed to imitate the effects of BOTOX without any needles at all. It’s one of the latest beauty treatments made with hyaluronic acid, and the company behind Glamotox claims it can freeze the muscles and provide instant wrinkle relief.
If fine lines and wrinkles are adding years to your appearance, Botox or facelift surgery isn’t the only way to banish those wrinkles for good. An innovative laser and light treatment known as the FotoFacial can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, tighten up the skin and even brighten up any age spots or pigmented areas of the face and neck.
