A recent study by the international journal Nature indicates that your body’s “biological age” can be reversed! The methods are still being ironed out, but in the meantime, there are other ways to turn back the clock on your appearance! From laser skin rejuvenation to PRP, thread lifts, and more, there are myriad methods to help you look years younger. Here’s what you need to know:

Laser Therapy Lasers can treat and reduce acne and rosacea, improve hyperpigmentation issues such as sun spots and age spots, and even reduce the appearance of scars and vascular disorders! Among laser therapy’s many successes is also the issue of wrinkle reduction. Dr. Shakov uses Cutera Xeo with Laser Genesis or the Enlighten 3 with PICO Genesis. These impressive treatments stimulate collagen production, leading to a reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Best of all, the treatments are comfortable and require little, if any, downtime!

Additionally, we offer the Limelight Facial, which uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to provide real complexion improvement by addressing issues of skin tone and pigmentation irregularities like brown spots and redness on the face, neck, décolleté, and hands.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Because this is a minimally-invasive procedure, downtime for recovery is typically just one week. That being said, some people are able to return to work after a day, depending on the nature of their job. We recommend that patients come in for a follow-up about 10 days after the procedure, to make sure they are healing well.

With PRP therapy sessions, you can treat wrinkles on the face, neck, chest, and décolleté. It’s also great for reducing puffiness and dark circles under the eyes – two other factors that can age your face. PRP may already sound pretty amazing, but there’s more! PRP therapy can also help diminish acne scars and stretch marks, add volume to the face, and even regrow hair. Yes, your very own blood can do all of that!

Thread Lifts Thread Lifting is a procedure that uses absorbable sutures to gently, but noticeably, lift your skin, while simultaneously stimulating the body’s own healing mechanisms, which leads to:

  • Formulation of new collagen
  • Increased size of the small blood vessels (which bring in more nutrients)
  • Improved skin texture and elasticity, and reduced fine lines
  • Breakdown of fat cells around the sutures

These improvements can last for up to two years after your procedure!

And More There are simple, at-home methods for turning back the clock on your complexion, as well. Healthline indicates some effective ways to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, such as:

  • Eating an overall healthy diet, but especially consuming “super foods” such as artichokes, avocados, chia seeds, walnuts, tomatoes, and salmon.
  • Giving yourself a facial massage each day, for 3-5 minutes, using just your fingertips, which can prevent wrinkles by increasing the proteins that make skin smooth, and also reducing stress – another known cause of wrinkles.
  • Applying topical gels that contain vitamins C and A.
  • Regularly consuming – or taking – probiotics, whether through yogurt or a supplement.
