The process of living takes a toll on our own bodies ability to repair itself and as a result we start to notice a certain amount of flabbiness, wrinkles, or dark spots.
The field of cosmetic enhancements has seen incredible growth and opportunities, such that we are now gradually shifting more towards the field of regenerative aesthetics. But what does this mean to my patients? As the term regenerative implies, I am seeking ways to regrow my patient’s lost volume, tone or texture. These issues are increasingly being addressed by scientifically proven methods of increasing the human bodies own healing properties to restore the more youthful qualities we aspire.
Some of the easiest options include comprehensive, independently tested skin-care lines that show improvement in the collagen levels as well as decreased signs of aging when the skin has been microscopically examined both before and after treatments.
We also have been encouraged by the results we have been seeing with harnessing our patients own blood products to restore their facial volume as well as increase skin tone. The Twilight Treatment has now been used for the past two years to great effect for our patients. These naturally occuring healing properties of the human body are now being used in other areas such as joints to stimulate growth of youthful tissue and combat the affects of aging.
There is encouraging evidence that many of the injectable fillers we use, such as Juvederm, stimulate collagen production such that our patients are starting to require fewer treatments over time.
Overall, it is an exciting time to be at the cutting edge of regenerative medicine, part of a process that has been going on for the past 25 years, and will certainly continue for many years ahead!
