Womenlovebeauty’s guest blogger Dr. Brandith Irwin who has been a guest medical expert on The Oprah Winfrey Show and the Weekend Today Show, provides beauty tips on anti-aging, my favorite beauty topic ever.


Anti-Aging Beyond The Face

When we think of anti-aging treatments we automatically think about the face. But don’t forget that the neck, chest and hands age too! In order to look flawlessly youthful, it is a good idea to treat all of these areas so you have an even look.

Laser treatments, chemical peels and injectables are common non-invasive anti aging treatments for the face that can also be applied to the neck, chest and hands.

The skin on your neck and chest is usually exposed to the sun just as much as your face, but not everyone remembers to apply sunscreen to these areas. Therefore this skin can become damaged. Laser resurfacing treatments, like fractional CO2 or Fraxel, or IPL can remove the sun damage, brown spots and wrinkles on your neck and chest, leaving all of your skin looking smooth, fresh and youthful.

If you prefer chemical peels to laser treatments for your face, you can also ask your dermatologist to apply the peel to your neck and chest. This will ensure that all of your skin from your head to your chest looks the same.

Additionally, the neck could benefit from Thermage skin tightening treatments. Thermage uses radiofrequency energy to tighten and lift skin along the jawline. The radiofrequency energy has a heating effect on the deep dermis, which tightens existing collagen and stimulates the production of new collagen. The immediate collagen contraction followed by gradual collagen tightening results in a beautifully lifted neckline.

Hands are also excessively exposed to the sun, but we often forget to sunscreen them. As a result, the hands become blotchy with brown spots and sun damage. Also, as we get older our hands lose volume, which leads to thin skin and visible veins and tendons. Lasers or IPL treatments are able to combat the brown spots, while fillers like Restylane or Radiesse can revolumize the backs of your hands.

By treating all of these areas you will achieve optimal anti-aging results!
