Anti-Aging Treatments Q & A

What treatments are available to minimize the signs of aging?

There are several things that can help you look younger for longer; some of them are products, and others are lifestyle related. For example, reducing stress and proper hydration are both ways to slow the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, and other evidence of aging.

Some anti-aging treatments available from Dr. Acosta include:

  • Laser treatments
  • Facials
  • Resurfacing
  • Botox
  • Dermal fillers
  • Skin-brightening treatments
  • Exfoliation
  • KYBELLA®

How do the various anti-aging treatments work?

Laser treatments are one of the most powerful ways to improve the look of your skin. Dr. Acosta offers several types of laser treatments that can reduce wrinkles, improve the texture of skin, and treat rosacea among several other conditions.

A facial not only feels great, but it provides benefits by cleaning, exfoliating, and nourishing your skin.

Some patients are good candidates for skin resurfacing, which can be carried out through laser treatments, a mechanical resurfacing, or a chemical peel. Resurfacing can reduce the appearance of fine lines, treat pigmentation problems, and improve the appearance of acne scars.

Dermal fillers are injectable products that plump the skin to minimize lines and wrinkles. There are several different types of fillers, and the one that will work best for you depends on several factors. Dr. Acosta recommends fillers based on patients’ individual needs.

Rather than filling in the wrinkle, Botox works by relaxing the muscles under the skin that cause the wrinkles. There have been recent advancements in Botox treatments, so you may want to explore the option.  

Exfoliation is the process of removing dry skin cells, which allows new, healthy skin cells to take their place. It’s important to use an exfoliator that is suitable for your skin.

If you have dark spots on your skin, you may be interested in learning about the different brightening treatments that Dr. Acosta can provide. The most appropriate brightening product depends on the cause of the dark spots, which can have different causes, from genes to sun damage to air pollution.

How do I know which skin rejuvenation treatment will work best?

Before embarking on any skin care regimen or treatment for a specific issue, schedule a consultation with Dr. Acosta at Primary Skin Care & Aesthetics. Your skin obviously affects your appearance, but it’s also the largest organ in your body, and problems with your skin can impact your overall health as well.

What is KYBELLA?

KYBELLA is an injectable treatment that decreases the appearance of fat under your chin, also known as the double chin. The injection contains deoxycholic acid, which is a substance found in your body that helps breakdown fat.

When injected into the fat under your chin, KYBELLA destroys the cells so they never come back and improves the appearance of your profile.
