As we age, our skin naturally undergoes several changes that reflect the passage of time. We may experience a loss of volume, the appearance of wrinkles, the formation of age spots, and increased skin laxity. The desire to maintain a youthful appearance is something that is shared by many of our patients, and it is also something that we can help with.
At Gold Skin Care Center in Nashville, TN, we are at the forefront of anti-aging treatments. We offer many different options for addressing wrinkles, loss of volume, age spots, and more, and we can build a treatment plan that caters to all of your concerns. Through our treatments, we can enhance the natural beauty of your skin while improving its health and texture.
What Causes the Skin to Age?
Intrinsic aging, also known as chronological or natural aging, is an inevitable process that happens over time. This form of aging is largely dictated by genetics and affects skin elasticity, collagen production, and the skin’s overall ability to repair itself. As we grow older, the rate of new cell production slows down, the skin becomes thinner and less elastic, and the production of natural oils decreases. These changes contribute to the formation of wrinkles, fine lines, and dryness — some of the key signs of intrinsic aging.
On the other hand, extrinsic aging is attributed to external factors and lifestyle choices that can accelerate the aging process. These include sun exposure, smoking, poor diet, lack of sleep, and environmental pollutants. For instance, prolonged sun exposure, also known as photoaging, can lead to premature wrinkles, age spots, and a rough, leathery appearance. Similarly, smoking can hasten skin aging by reducing the blood supply to the skin, thereby depriving it of oxygen and essential nutrients.
How Can Aging Skin Be Treated?
IPL Photorejuvenation is an advanced anti-aging skin treatment that uses a broad spectrum of light to target and treat various signs of aging. By stimulating collagen production and breaking down melanin, it helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, and uneven skin tone. The Lumenis M22 and InMode Lumecca are two of the devices we use for this treatment, both of which are known for their exceptional results.
Ablative Laser Treatments
Ablative laser treatments are some of the most comprehensive anti-aging treatments. These treatments work by removing the outer layer of the skin to reveal new, rejuvenated skin underneath. We use several devices, including ULTRApulse® Alpha, Cortex, HALO, and UltraClear, to deliver these treatments effectively.
Non-Ablative Laser Treatments
Non-ablative laser treatments are a less invasive anti-aging solution. These treatments work by heating the underlying skin tissue without affecting the surface, which stimulates collagen production and improves skin tone and texture. One of the devices we use for non-ablative treatments is the Lutronic LaseMD Ultra.
Neuromodulators are anti-aging skin treatments that work by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These treatments are made from Botulinum toxin type A which temporarily relaxes the facial muscles that cause wrinkles. We offer a range of neuromodulator options, including Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®, Jeuveau®, and Daxxify®.
Dermal fillers are anti-aging treatments that help restore volume and smooth out wrinkles. These treatments often contain hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that adds volume and hydrates the skin. We offer the JUVÉDERM® line, the RHA® line, and the Restylane® line, each with its unique range of products for treating different aging concerns.
Biostimulators are unique injectable anti-aging treatments that stimulate your body’s natural collagen production to restore volume and smooth out wrinkles. We offer Sculptra®, Radiesse® and Radiesse Plus, and Bellafill®, each of which contains unique ingredients that help restore volume over time.
RF Skin Tightening
RF Skin Tightening is a non-invasive anti-aging solution that uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production and tighten loose skin. We offer ThermiSmooth® and TempSure® Envi treatments that effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles and firm loose skin.
Microneedling is an anti-aging treatment that works by creating microscopic punctures in the skin to stimulate a healing response. This leads to three stages: inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling, which ultimately results in smoother, younger-looking skin. For microneedling, we use the SkinPen® device.
Chemical peels are a type of anti-aging facial that works by exfoliating the skin to reveal a fresher, younger-looking layer underneath. We offer a wide range of chemical peels, including Glytone, SkinMedica, SkinBetter, 40% Mandelic, and TCA & Lactic Hand Peel, each designed to target specific skin concerns.
Hydrafacial™ treatments involve a multi-step anti-aging facial that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration using advanced Vortex-Fusion® technology. This treatment effectively removes dead skin cells and impurities while infusing the skin with hydrating serums, making it a popular choice among our anti-aging solutions.
Anti-Aging Skin Care
In addition to our treatments, the right anti-aging skincare routine is crucial for maintaining youthful skin and prolonging the results of treatments. We can recommend a personalized skin care regimen to help keep your skin looking its best.
