5 Ways to Maintain a Youthful Appearance

5 Ways to Maintain a Youthful Appearance

Are you searching for the fountain of youth? Do you have a drawer of lotions and potions that don't work or you don't know how to use them? Are you confused by all the ads on social media promising results that are hard to believe? You are not alone.

In this day and age, there is so much information at your fingertips. Consumers run for the lasted product only to find themselves disappointed with their results.  Here at Prime MediSpa, we believe it is the strong commitment between the patient's "homework" along with the doctor's treatments that bring the best results. 

Here are the five best ways to maintain a youthful appearance:

1. Drink Plenty of Water

Water keeps your body hydrated and refreshed helping to maintain your skin's elasticity. When the body is dehydrated, the skin begins to sag producing fine lines and wrinkles on the surface of the skin.  Do you see dark circles under your eyes?  These dark circles appear as the skin loses elasticity.  Drinking plenty of water is your first line of defense.

What if I can't get myself to drink the water?

If drinking enough water is a challenge, consider scheduling regular appointments for IV infusions. These nutrient-rich infusions create an instant hydration boost, providing the body's tissues and organs the hydration it needs to thrive.

2. Use Sun Protection

Sunlight is vital to healthy bones, skin, and hair. Unfortunately, repeated sun exposure without sun protection can cause damage to the skin's elastin, collagen, and skin cells. This preventable damage can lead to hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and skin cancer.  Wearing sunscreen daily even during the winter months is crucial in the prevention of premature aging of the skin.

What can I do if I already see sun damage?

At Prime MediSpa, we offer a variety of treatments including Chemical Peels and PRP Facials.  Both treatments boost collagen production, improving the surface of the skin.  The result is smoother, younger-looking skin.

3. Eating a Well-balanced Diet

One of the best ways to promote healthy, younger skin is by feeding your skin nutrient-rich foods.  Fresh, whole foods like fruits and vegetables are full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Diets containing Vitamins A, D, C, and E benefit the appearance of your skin, leaving it firmer, brighter, and smoother.

Is there any other way to get these nutritional benefits besides eating them?

Yes, second to eating vitamin-rich foods, individuals may choose to take vitamin supplements. At Prime MediSpa, we provide the ability to take these vitamins as injectables rather than orally.  Setting up a regimen of wellness injections will allow your body to utilize 100% of the nutrients as it is administered directly into the bloodstream.  

4. Use Medical Grade Skincare

Medical grade skincare contains high concentrations of active ingredients and always comes recommended after your skin is assessed by a professional.  This insures you are using the products you need, and the best way to use them.  Medical grade skincare not only improves your skin today, it also prevents future damage.

But my drugstore brand works just fine...

Your current skincare may seem great now, but the fact is, you may be missing out on healthier, more radiant-looking skin. Lower cost also means lower potency and fewer benefits. At Prime MediSpa, we offer medical grade skincare for all skin types.  Ask one of our staff members to make a recommendation for you the next time you visit.

5. Balance your Hormone Levels

Three main hormones change the look and feel of our skin.  They are estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Hormone imbalance can cause many skin-related issues including acne, eczema, change in pigmentation, excess hair growth under the lip and chin areas, and loss of collagen to name a few. Research shows that men and women on hormone therapy (HT) and bioidentical hormones (BHT) have younger-looking skin with fewer wrinkles and sagging.

How do I know if my hormones are the reason for my skin issues?

A quick blood test would let our staff know if you needed hormone supplements.  Dr. Taweh works with patients to balance their hormone levels and get them to feel and look more like themselves again.
