Reverse Aging – Treatments to slow/reverse the aging process
Posted on June 26, 2019 by Dr. Blume in Blog
Holy smokes … I recently realized that I look younger now than when I started working as Blume Skin & Body’s controller in 2015. I’m no spring chicken, and this is no mean feat!
I have partaken in many of the treatments we offer, and it’s very hard to pick a favorite. If you pressed me it would be Ultherapy. My neck and jowls are aging faster than the rest of my face. Ultherapy is targeted ultrasound which creates a thermal injury to the tissue and forces the body to rebuild collagen and elastin. Ultherapy is the only FDA approved non-surgical method for lifting the skin on the face, neck and chest. Ultherapy is a single treatment and lasts, at my age, about 2 years.
Certainly, one treatment I had little confidence would work has turned out to be my favorite for the body. Sandra suggested it when I complained of getting wrinkles in my décolletage. The treatment? Sculptra injections in the chest once a month for three months, then maintenance as needed. Sculptra builds collagen and is longer-lasting than many injections. It worked! A v-neckline is more flattering to me than other necklines, and I’m very pleased that I have not had to revamp my wardrobe to work around an unsightly décolletage.
I also take the recommended Nutrafol vitamins, so that may be contributing to the longevity of regrowth. My hair-dresser noticed and recently commented that my hair actually seemed to be getting thicker. Remember the old ads? Only her hair dresser knows for sure … she and anyone reading this blog!
