Instead of Nip and Tuck, Nip it in the Bud

My Aunt says that aging naturally and aging gracefully are mutually exclusive and she is completely right! As our understanding of aging and especially aging of skin is becoming deeper, it's becoming evident that our skin fails just like any other organ of our body as we go through time. In other words, just like your heart ages and fails or your brain ages or your kidneys age and fail, similarly your skin also begins to show chronic signs of failure in your 40s and 50s. When our skin fails, it falls. As our skin loses its elasticity and layers of collagen that bind it firmly to our body, we can see it begin to sag and lose its firmness. 

Throughout known history, humans have tried to preserve their skin from falling apart as we go through life by using different lotions and potions, but for the first time in human history, over the last two decades, new treatments and protocols have emerged. These are completely based upon the principles of modern medicine. In the United States doctors are routinely providing FDA approved or cleared technology and medications to improve the quality of longer life spans. 

For this reason, it is now possible for people in the United States to access anti-aging for different parts of their bodies. People ask me "What is anti-aging?" all the time and my response is "Anti-aging is the proactive management of your health and wellness." Since skin failure is still not covered by your health insurance, it becomes an out-of-pocket cost for everyone (at Juvanni we provide financing for most of these treatments). 

As far as anti-aging of your skin is concerned each decade comes with its own problems and procedures. However, after the age of 50, there is one machine which I love to recommend once or twice a year especially for the parts of your face or neck that experience more laxity. This spring, I am offering under-chin skin tightening packages combined with my signature anti-aging intravenous skin cocktail along with targeted areas of fat melt with Kybella. This package usually retails at $3,750 but for this spring I intend to offer it for $2,550. Again, this is a routine treatment to prevent chronic skin failure especially around your face and neck. 

Preventing chronic skin failure regularly around your face & neck will help you prevent unnecessary Nip & Tuck at your local plastic surgeon’s office every decade.

I recommend that you consider nipping your chronic skin failure in the bud instead, with the appropriate and judicious use of anti-aging medications and machines. Ultherapy by Merz is a targeted ultrasound-based technology which has shown itself to be very effective in preventing skin laxity. I like to call it an invisible sewing machine for your skin. You don’t see the results of Ultherapy right away. It takes 4-6 months for you to notice extra firmness and when you do this regularly over the years, your skin therapist should be able to preserve your facial architecture.  I like to combine it with other tools like PDO threads as well as targeted fat melting if and when needed. 

Please check out a video of me getting my own Ultherapy done while having fun with Tik Tok filters. As always, I welcome all questions. You can text me your questions at 914-368-6609.
