Over 28% of women under the age of 25 admit to regularly worrying about signs of aging, with the average millennial using anti-aging beauty products starting at the age of 26. Angie Sucre, a Registered Nurse and Master Aesthetician at Luxe Beauty Now in Bedford, Texas, offers a variety of anti-aging treatments from skin care to spider vein removal to help women (and men) reduce concerns about their aging appearance.
Wrinkles, spider veins, and grey hair are all part of the natural aging process. Exposure to everything from environmental factors to hereditary condition leaves the body's largest organ, the skin, vulnerable to wear and tear. The body produces fewer nutrients to enrich the skin with age, leading to thinner, drier, less elastic skin that wrinkles.
Increased pressure in the veins cause spider veins and are most common in people who stand for long periods. The tendency to get spider veins is hereditary, and they’re more common in older individuals. In addition to the appearance of veins seen through the skin, people with spider veins also common experience leg heaviness, swelling in the legs, or an overall feeling of tiredness in the legs.
If spider veins bother you, there are two effective methods for treating them: sclerotherapy and laser treatment. Sclerotherapy treatment involves injecting a solution into the spider vein, which causes the vein to collapse, scar, and then fade. Laser treatment is commonly used to reduce the appearance of smaller, fine spider veins.
Although there is no “fountain of youth” from which to drink and stop the aging process, a variety of skin care treatments can reduce the signs of aging, including:
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial laser skin treatment minimizes the appearance of dark or red spots, sun damage, and rosacea for a younger appearance.
Laser skin resurfacing removes the top layer of sun and age-damaged skin to reveal healthier-looking skin underneath. Skin resurfacing also promotes healthier skin regeneration.
As the skin becomes less elastic with age, it decreases oil production and becomes more wrinkled. Botox and fillers injected into the skin can add volume and smooth out wrinkles to reduce signs of aging.
Nonsurgical skin tightening uses ultrasound energy, radiofrequency energy, or a combination of heat and radiofrequency to stimulate collagen and elastin growth. Skin firmness, skin tone, and skin texture improve with skin-tightening treatments.
