Maintaining a healthy weight is important no matter your age. Although obesity has reached epidemic proportions in the Untied States, there are many individuals who have decided to fight the battle of the bulge, and they are winning. For most, the final results are completely rewarding, with rejuvenated energy, health and a more vivacious appearance. Some older warriors reach the end feeling great physically, but the visage of the stranger in the mirror leaves something to be desired.
Who Is That Person?
One of the major letdowns of older people who lose a substantial amount of weight is the change in their face. The roundness provided by fat cells disappears, often leaving behind lines and wrinkles that were hidden. Aging skin lacks the volume of collagen and elastin that is needed to keep it tight and smooth. In the end, significant weight loss can cause you to look older. Even so, it is definitely healthier to lose excess pounds and maintain a healthy weight.
That person in the mirror may not look like the person you are used to seeing; however, you do have options to restore a more youthful look. With today’s advances in techniques and products, you may be able to achieve younger-looking skin though minimally invasive means.
It’s Nice to Have Options
In the past, the only option for tightening loose facial skin was through surgery. While the surgical facelift is still a viable solution for getting rid of unwanted wrinkles and tightening the face, in many situations, it is not the only one.
There are several minimally invasive and non-surgical methods for restoring a youthful appearance. Wrinkle reduction, removal of fine lines and tightening of the skin can be accomplished with dermal fillers or energy treatments. These include radio frequency, ultrasound energy and intense-pulsed light.
Non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments can produce effective results. The changes in your appearance look natural, and there is no downtime after treatments.
