The aging process does not discriminate among us. Yes, some people may age more gracefully than others, but sooner or later, the three D’s of aging affect everyone. Dr. James Lin, medical director of Glow Laser & Beauty Center in Erie, Pennsylvania has over 20 years of experience consulting with patients to address these issues.
“Three issues come up 99% of the time in all the patients that we see – deflation, descent, and deterioration,” says Lin. “But the good news is there are several treatments and solutions to combat these issues.”
The 3 D’s
Deflation – Losing volume, particularly in the mid-face and the brow. We can lose 1% of our fat pad each month as we age.
Descent – Sagging of the skin due to losing volume (deflation) and the effect of gravity pulling down on us. We have a lot of muscles in the face and various movements over the span of decades also affect our skin.
Deterioration – The thinning and breakdown of skin tissue and the loss of elasticity and collagen. Environmental effects from things such as sun exposure also affect pigmentation.
So what can be done about “the D’s?”
Facial Rejuvenation Options
At Glow, a medical spa and aesthetic practice, there are numerous options to treat and address your aging concerns.
Dermal Fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Versa, are volumizer injectables that help address sagging and deflating tissue.
Other filler options available are nano fat transfers and the use of your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP), also known as natural growth factor injections.
Comprehensive energy devices, such as the Sciton laser, Halo laser, and InMode radiofrequency devices, including Morpheus8, Bodytite, Facetite, and Accutite, all address many of the most common aging concerns that patients have.
The best results are experienced when combining treatments and procedures that address all your areas of concern.
“The goal is to get our patients the results they desire in the most cost-effective way possible,” says Lin.
