You may feel young inside, but your aging skin may still give you away. As your body’s largest organ, your skin bears the brunt of environmental impacts like UV radiation, pollution, and exposure to harsh chemicals. Combined with genetics and lifestyle choices, these factors can leave you looking older than your actual age. The most popular trend in anti-aging treatments among Baltimore residents is the popularity of non-surgical procedures that involve less risk and downtime. If you have become unhappy with the appearance of your aging skin, there is a treatment waiting for you.
Approved in 2004 by the FDA, Sculptra® is a type of dermal filler that can promote skin thickness and promote a lifting effect in the treatment area. Treatment involves the injection of a synthetic substance called polylactic acid, which mimics the lactic acid produced by your muscles during vigorous exercise. At ProMD Health, we offer the Sculptra® Butt Lift, which is popular with many of our patients in Baltimore. Once the Sculptra® is injected into your skin, it is gradually replaced by collagen. In fact, it is the only dermal filler known to actually rebuild collagen.
Micro-needling is another minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment involving little to no downtime or significant side effects. We perform this anti-aging treatment by moving a handheld device covered in tiny micro-needles over the skin’s surface. This forms hundreds of microscopic channels in the surface of the skin that trigger a self-repair process to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, scars, and blemishes.
Most patients benefit from multiple treatment sessions, as the results of one treatment session build upon the results of the previous ones. As long as you are willing to wait a set amount of time between treatments to give your skin time to heal, you can usually have as many micro-needling treatments as you desire.
Dermal fillers are injectables that promote increased skin thickness to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. Ingredients like hyaluronic acid can correct skin deficiencies that lead to thinner skin that is prone to develop wrinkles. Treatment with dermal fillers offers impressive, but temporary results. This anti-aging treatment needs to be repeated at regular intervals for ongoing results.
