Anti Aging Q & A

What are anti-aging treatments?

Anti-aging treatments are aesthetic treatments that aim to make you look younger. As you age, your skin loosens and weathers, becoming wrinkled, rough, scarred, and blemished. Anti-aging treatments get rid of these imperfections using several types of cutting-edge technologies. Anti-aging treatments include:

  • Laser therapy
  • Injections
  • Facials
  • Skin tightening
  • Body sculpting
  • Microneedling

While some anti-aging treatments work on any part of your body, most people choose to target the face. Your face is the part of your body that defines you the most, so you want it to look its best even after years of aging.

What can anti-aging treatments do for me?

Anti-aging treatments can make many improvements to your appearance. A few examples of things that anti-aging treatments can do are:

  • Eliminate wrinkles
  • Eliminate lines
  • Tighten your skin
  • Remove scars
  • Fill in thinned lips
  • Fill  in sunken cheeks

If you have specific features that you’d like to target with anti-aging treatments, Dr. Michael Jones can direct you to a treatment that will give you the results you want.

What are the risks associated with anti-aging treatments?

With today’s advancements in technology, most anti-aging treatments are noninvasive or minimally invasive. Compared to surgeries with similar results, there aren’t many serious risks that come with anti-aging treatments. However, you must note that anti-aging treatments may come with a few side effects. Side effects of laser therapy, injections, and other anti-aging treatments are similar and include:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Irritation
  • Itchiness
  • Moderate pain

These side effects go away within a few days of treatment. Dr. Jones gives you preparation and aftercare instructions to minimize your side effects and discomfort. In some cases, he can provide topical anesthetics before treatment if you’re concerned about the possibility of pain.
