Anti-Aging Q & A

What can I do to look and feel younger as I age?

Although some physical and biological changes are inevitable as you get older, there are many things you can do to help yourself look and feel better. As your hair starts to turn gray, or your face begins to show more wrinkles, you can take these steps to promote better health:

  • Get moderate physical exercise every day like walking, swimming, or any other activity you enjoy
  • Eat healthy foods and drink enough water
  • Manage stress
  • Get enough sleep
  • Quit smoking
  • Get adequate amounts of vitamins and minerals; consider IV therapies
  • Stay mentally active and social
  • Consider nonsurgical anti-aging skin treatments to decrease the appearance of facial wrinkles

How does Botox® Cosmetic work to minimize wrinkles?

Botox is an effective anti-aging treatment that works on frown lines between your eyebrows and crow’s feet around your eyes. Botox is a series of prescription injections that relax facial muscles to smooth skin and minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles, giving you a more youthful appearance. A trained expert at Validus Health and Wellness Center administers the injections, so you can be sure you’re in a safe, medically-experienced environment.

Depending on the area you’re having treated, the doctor injects Botox solution into the muscles of your forehead or around your eyes. You’ll usually see a noticeable difference in your appearance 24-48 hours after the treatment. The injections are typically painless, and the results last from three to four months.* To maintain your desired appearance, you may require additional Botox treatments every few months.

Do infrared saunas have anti-aging benefits?

Infrared saunas are used not only for their health benefits, but for cosmetic benefits as well. Infrared light rays, which are safe for skin exposure, have the unique ability to heat the epidermal and dermal layers of skin. This makes your body temperature rise without heating the air around you, like a traditional sauna. The result is similar to a moderate workout in that your heart rate increases and your body sweats.

One of the benefits of an infrared sauna treatment is to help increase blood circulation and perspiration. As your body circulates blood to cool itself from the heat of the infrared light, your pores open and toxins are released through your sweat. The increased blood circulation also brings more nutrients to the skin, which may help fuel collagen production. After several infrared sauna treatments, many people notice improved skin texture, tone, and a diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, for a more radiant appearance.*
