Prepare skin for the New Year with at-home aesthetic devices that deliver professional results
TORONTO: Plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Mulholland refers to the most recent trend in skincare as the '10 in 10'. In the last 10 years, the average age of patients receiving injectables and cosmetic procedures has deceased by 10 years, says Dr. Mulholland.
Dr. Mullholland recommends those in their late teens and early twenty's start a simple preventative skincare routine including minimizing UV exposure, using SPF and applying cleanser, toner and moisturizer. Collagen supplements and microdermabrasion treatments are also effective skincare regimes that can reduce the impact of daily wear and tear, stress, acne and pollution.
The first signs of aging tend to emerge in the early thirties with the beginning of fine lines and wrinkles. This is when people begin considering the next level of treatments. Addressing the signs of aging at an early stage allows for easier correction and can slow down the progression. Options can include everything from minimally invasive injectables to home-use aesthetic devices. Essentially, these devices are professional grade technologies that have been modified for safe and effective at-home use. This option is less painful, has no downtime and is significantly less expensive than a visit to the dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
Individuals are taking matters 'into their own hands' to combat aging. Treatments that used to be restricted to a doctor's office can now be done at home, with comparable results. In 2017 Silk'n, an award-winning, internationally acclaimed leader in the at-home beauty business, introduced the Titan Skin Tightening and Lifting Device. The Titan delivers harmonized energy to precise areas beneath the skin to activate the body's natural restoration process. The device uses infrared energy to remodel collagen which improves skin tone and texture, LED light energy to produce collagen and RF Energy to bond connective tissue for a lifting and tightening effect. In a 2018 Silk'n Titan User Survey, 78% of participants experienced an improvement in skin tone, 76% experienced a reduction in wrinkles and crow's feet and 58% reported a reduction in the appearance of sun and age spots. Introducing a Titan treatment into your skincare routine over the holidays can kickstart a New Year's resolution for better, younger looking skin.
As the aging process continues and people consider additional options, at-home devices can be paired with professional treatments to help maintain the results and increase the length in between treatments. I believe in protecting your investment, says Dr. Mulholland, I recommend the Silk'n Titan to my patients who have undergone both surgical and non-surgical programs to leverage the healing matrix, amplify results and protect the treatment. Prior to pairing the Titan with a medical treatment, consult a plastic surgeon to ensure the best and safest results.
Beauty technologies are a new way to fight aging that's both accessible and cost-effective, and when paired with professional treatments, this powerful duo may just be the elusive 'fountain of youth'.
