I went to a conference the other day and heard the best explanation of the aging process, and I wanted to share it with you. Dr. Shino Bay Aguilar described aging this way.
In your 20's and 30's, you stop producing collagen, and your skin starts to age.
In your 40's your fat pads begin to diminish, and the soft curves begin to fade
In your 50's, 60's and on, you lose bone density
So when people talk about maintenance, I think of skin health, treatments to improve collagen production, healthy eating, and exercise to maintain all the facial structures changing during the aging process.
Botox and fillers are great for reducing muscular wrinkling and replacing lost fat, but these are not what will keep you youthful throughout your life. Instead, work on your skin early and regularly; it's worth it!
