The Aging Face and How to Age with Grace
Aging is a natural process and along with wisdom, experience, and accomplishments that come with getting older, our physical appearance changes as well. The aging process is the inevitable and predictable result of living longer and we can embrace the journey with a few tips and treatments to age more gracefully.
There are two distinct aging systems, intrinsic and extrinsic, that affect our aging face. Intrinsic, or natural aging begins in our mid-20’s and continues steadily throughout life. Genetics plays a key role and happily or unhappily we can blame our parents for our older appearance. Extrinsic aging, on the other hand, are those factors that can accelerate our aging faces. These include sun exposure, pollution, stress, smoking, excessive alcohol and lack of skin care.
Signs of aging:
1. Skin color becomes more gray because of less blood flow.
2. Facial shape becomes collapsed and droopy as muscle and collagen decrease and some areas of the face loses fat volume, clumps and shifts downward. Other areas of the face gain fat, particularly the lower half, so we tend to get baggy around the chin and jowly in the neck.
3. Wrinkles appear, which is the result of facial muscles making expression and continually creasing the overlying skin.
4. Skin texture becomes less smooth as dead skin cells do not shed as quickly and the production of new cells slow down.
Choosing how to age gracefully:
1. The basics: Hydrate, avoid the sun and be fanatical about using sunscreen. Get enough rest, exercise and sleep and quit smoking.
2. Skin Care: Wash your face every night before sleep and, during the day, remove all the excess residue from working out or pollution. Exfoliate your skin with a product that is nonirritating and removes debris and dead skin cells. Moisturize, ideally with a moisturizer that has sunscreen, particularly around the eyes where the skin is thinner. Consider topical Vitamin A, retinol or a stronger prescription tretinoin which increases collagen synthesis and helps with discoloration by peeling away the top dead layer of the skin. Consider anti-aging creams with ingredients such as Vitamin C, hydroxy acids and co-enzyme Q.
3. Botulinum toxin injections: Botox, Xeomin and Dysport are all forms of botulinum toxin. These injections are used to partially and temporarily immobilize the muscles that form expression lines of the forehead, between the brows, crows feet, pebbly chin and neck bands.
4. Dermal fillers: After Botox, dermal fillers are the most common cosmetic procedure performed in the United States. Fillers are used to treat lines created by lost collagen and fat. Many different materials are used as dermal filler, the most popular being hyaluronic acid such as Juvederm and Restylane. Like Botox, the effect of the dermal filler wears off after several months.
5. Microneedling, chemical peels, PRP injections, and lasers: These are treatments that are designed to boost collagen production, improve skin texture and soften wrinkles. Maintaining good skin and reversing sun damage requires multiple treatments.
So as you can see, you can both reverse and maintain your face and skin even as you age in years. Remember, your skin did not age overnight. Some of these treatments are almost immediate such as Botox and fillers, while others require healing and a maintenance program. Call and make your appointment to see what treatments are right for you!

Patient Feedback & Reviews
I am long over due posting this review. About a month ago, I had my first micro-needling. I love the way my skin looks and feels, radiant to say the least. Let’s just say, I am already planning a second round with Grace. Grace is lovely, a pleasure to go to. She is a professional who cares for her patients and it shows through her work. Christine is also great, greets with a smile, friendly and very attentive.
I had the best experience ever. The front desk staff Christine was very gracious and polite, friendly and inviting. Grace was awesome, I’ve never had any skin treatment done before, so I was a little nervous on what to expect. Grace made me feel at ease, very comfortable and informed me on the treatment. The results were amazing making my skin look and feel healthy and alive. I would recommend this experience to anyone wanting to improve the look and feel of their skin. I will continue this treatment with Grace.
I had microneedling done twice now with Dr. Kim. I could not be happier with my results! I am an active 51 year old that enjoys the sun and my skin looks fantastic! The microneedling was massaging and I was a bit red that evening. My skin feels tighter and brighter. I will definitely do again. Dr Kim took her time and had great bedside manners. Thank you for a great experience!
