Like fine wine, we all get better with age. We become more in-tune with ourselves, more knowledgeable and experienced, and definitely more mature.


Still, there are downsides to aging too. And there’s nothing wrong with seeking ways to the slow down aging process. After all, when we look better, we feel better. Spending time and energy on your appearance is a wonderful investment in your own self-confidence and self-esteem.

At-Home Recommendations to Slow Down the Aging Process

On your own, professionals recommend eating a diet that’s low in carbs, salt, and processed ingredients and hydrating with at least 64 ounces of water per day. Also make sure to avoid tobacco and excess alcohol.

Aside from diet, ensure that you’re exercising regularly. Even light jogging or walking is good. Use moisturizers every day with your skincare routine, and finally, be sure to wear sunblock whenever you go outdoors — that includes summer and winter.

For more precise ways to slow down aging with professional help and reconstructive surgery, here are several procedures we recommend:

Facelifts

Facelifts slow down aging by rejuvenating the natural “sad,” “tired,” or “old” looks that many of us acquire as we get older. These procedures literally lift the face to naturally tighten the appearance of your face and neck.

Facelifts aren’t just for those in their 50s, 60s, or beyond either. To age as gracefully as possible, it’s best to undergo a few minor surgical or non-surgical procedures like facelifts every few years, starting as soon as you notice signs of aging around 35 or so.

Wrinkle Injections and Fillers

The wrinkle reduction Calgary residents are looking for involves both injections and fillers. Each of these procedures is unique.

First, injections work for wrinkles and lines that have not yet formed by reducing muscle activity by 50 percent or more and preventing wrinkles from forming in the first place.

Fillers, on the other hand, fill in wrinkles that have already formed by plumping them up. These are especially wonderful for aging lines around the face and for the lips.

Skin Peels

Skin peels can improve the look of aging skin by giving you a healthy, youthful glow and removing the outer layer of old skin that is most visible. These peels and the accompanying skincare products that Dr. Zakhary uses can reduce sun damage, age spots, mild scarring, and fine lines.

How to Choose Which Procedures Are Right for You

Whenever considering any anti-aging procedures, it’s important to choose a professional with dedicated training.

It’s also wise to consult with someone who will help you achieve a natural look. You’re looking for a professional who will be honest with you and only recommend procedures that will help you avoid an unnatural, fake-looking result.
