When considering treatment to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, it is essential to understand all of the risks and rewards associated with the chosen treatment. Dermal fillers are a choice that are growing in popularity. This treatment can help diminish wrinkles and facial lines, while restoring fullness to the face. This option is great for people who want to soften facial wrinkles, enhance thin lips, and improve the appearance of facial scarring. The treatment is typically chosen by patients who want something more than Botox injections, but do not necessarily need a facelift or other more drastic procedures.

As we age, many of our body’s features change. One thing that many people notice is the appearance of bags and drooping skin underneath the eyes. For those who are open to the idea of cosmetic surgery, an eye lift procedure, or blepharoplasty, may be the best choice. Others who do not have the financial resources or simply prefer not to pursue surgery, can still seek improvement through more natural lifestyle changes.

You have probably already heard that using tanning beds can cause many long term health hazards.

These can include sagging skin, thinner lips, hollow cheeks, uneven complexion, dark spots and, of course, fine lines and wrinkles. There are a host of skin care products and even cosmetic procedures that can help you fight the appearance of wrinkles, either by preventing them or diminishing them. However, if you prefer to treat the issue without the use of chemicals or invasive procedures, you have many options.

Testosterone therapy. For years, these two words have had a huge impact on our society and culture. The "ideal man" has become an image not just of a loving father who supports his family, but of a father who has ripped abs, a full head of hair, a sports car and can rock anyone's socks off in bed. However, these two opposing images have given rise to many men considering testosterone therapy to fight the naturally lowering levels of the hormone in their bodies as they age.

As we age, the skin on our face and neck naturally begins to form creases and wrinkles, which for some, becomes a source of concern. Fortunately, doctors, plastic surgeons, and scientists have been working tirelessly to help reverse or slow down the visual effects of aging. A commonly used term for certain skin treatment methods is "regenerative medicine," which strives to not just stop new imperfections from forming, but to actually rebuild and renew cells and tissue.
