Top Three Antiaging Secrets Revealed By Grand Master of Skincare

Scientists at the University of Michigan recently published several studies outlining the most effective antiaging skincare solutions, indicating that C02 laser resurfacing, Restylane injections and retinoic acid can provide dramatic results for aging skin. These treatments offer several skin rejuvenation benefits, and some dermatology doctors are already putting these antiaging treatments to the test.

Dr. John Voorhees, the 'grand master of skin-care research' at the University of Michigan recently presented a series of lectures and research studies at the Department of Dermatology at UC-Irvine. His work reveals that fractional laser treatments, Restylane and Juvederm dermal fillers, and Retin-A are the three key secrets for reducing the signs of aging.

The goal of each procedure is to boost collagen production so that the skin appears tighter, smoother and free of wrinkles and fine lines, and these treatments can be easily administered over lunch hour.

Min S. Ahn, MD FACS, a board certified facial plastic surgeon and medical director of the Aesthetic Wellness Center in Westborough, MA explains how the Fraxel Repair C02 Laser (a.k.a. 'lunchtime laser') works for aging skin:

  • Miley Cyrus is undergoing a makeover, freshening up her look with a spiky new haircut and to the surprise of many fans, augmenting her lips. Recent pictures of Miley show her with much a much thicker and larger pout, which could be the result of a lip augmentation procedure. Lip plumping treatments are among the most popular minimally-invasive treatments and are usually performed with some type of filler. Restylane and Juvederm are some of the popular injectable used to enhance the lips, and many people believe these fillers produce the most natural appearance.

  • Khloe Kardashian made headlines recently after the paparazzi caught her with the infamous “trout pout” – the result of too many injectable fillers in the lips. Kim Kardashian’s younger sister appeared to have some very swollen and lumpy lips after leaving a Beverly Hills salon last week and many are suspecting that that star had cosmetic surgery. Celebrity plastic surgery doctor Dr. Anthony Youn did not treat Khloe Kardashian but believes that the star did have some type of injectable filler. He tells, “Khloe has a trout pout! The excessively plump appearance of her lips could be due to injections of a filler like Juvederm. Her upper lip is larger than her lower lip, causing her mouth to resemble a trout’s. Most injectable fillers last about 6 months in the lips, so given enough time we may see her lips shrink to a smaller and more typical size.” Another plastic surgery doctor, Dr. Michael Fiorellio who is based in New York City, made a similar conclusion. He suspects that Khloe had some type of filler treatment because, “Her lips look swollen and bruised. The product looks lumpy as well”. Dr. Fiorellio is suggesting that this Kardashian sister had either Juvederm or Restylane injections to make her lips appear larger and fuller. Injectable fillers are among the most popular types of non-invasive cosmetic enhancements around the country, and are an attractive option for women who want to add volume to their lips, fill out hollows in their cheeks, and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and lines. They’re also more affordable than having surgery and can be a convenient option for those who don’t want to deal with the long downtime and recovery process associate with a surgical procedure like lip implants or a facelift.
