What does the phrase “aging gracefully” mean to you?
Some believe it means to confidently embracing signs of aging as they appear without taking any measures to look younger. Others believe it means doing whatever necessary to maintain confidence while getting older.
There is no right or wrong answer. You get to decide how you want to accept the aging process.
If you are interested in exploring cosmetic fixes to help you look and feel more youthful, Dr. Sean Maguire of Physician’s Center for Beauty has more ways than ever to turn back the clock without producing a frozen or artificial look.
Botox and Fillers
Cosmetic injectables like Botox and fillers are a quick and minimally invasive way to temporarily soften signs of aging and create a more youthful facial expression. Botox minimizes the appearance of expression lines between the eyebrows, around the outer corners of the eyes and across the forehead. Fillers plump up deeper facial creases and folds and restore lost volume to hollow-looking cheeks or thin lips.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is a versatile non-surgical treatment that can address numerous signs of aging, including wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots and age spots. The treatment eliminates the outermost layer of damaged, aged skin, revealing fresh, healthy skin. The heat from the laser also stimulates the body’s production of collagen for smoother, firmer looking skin.
For many people, facelift is a very useful tool to age gracefully. During the procedure, the deep layers of tissue and muscle in the middle and lower face are lifted and tightened, and the skin is re-draped more tightly over the face. When performed by a talented surgeon, facelift can turn back the clock seven to 10 years.
If the eyes have aged more quickly than the rest of the face, upper and/or lower eyelid surgery can help reverse the effects of aging. Upper eyelid surgery corrects droopy, saggy lids and lower eyelid surgery reduces puffy lids and under-eye bags. The lids can be treated together if needed.
BioTE® Hormone Optimization Therapy
Menopause, perimenopause and andropause causes normal hormone levels to drop, leading to a slew of unpleasant physical and mental side effects. BioTE® Hormone Optimization Therapy replenishes estrogen and testosterone for more energy, increased mental sharpness, greater libido and better sleep. The hormones are delivered steadily via a tiny pellet (i.e., smaller than a grain of rice) implanted under the skin.
Look and Feel Like Your Best Self in 2019
When exploring potential solutions with Dr. Maguire, try to be as candid as possible about what you do (and do not) want to change. He will consider your unique facial anatomy and your desires before suggesting a customized treatment plan. If you opt for hormone therapy, Dr. Maguire will take bloodwork and tailor the dosage of the hormones to your unique needs.
