Anti-Aging Lifestyle Choices Tips

At Wake Health Medical Group, we can offer you the cosmetic procedures that deliver amazing anti-aging results at our Raleigh location. As early as your 30th birthday or even midlife, aging can have a dramatic effect on your skin’s appearance.

While you can’t control your body’s nature process such as declining estrogen levels that lead to sagging skin or genetics that give you a particular bone structure, there’s plenty you can do to combat the damage caused by external influences.

Here are our top recommendations for retaining a youthful appearance:

Decrease Your Sun Exposure

Dermatologists and skin care experts agree that it’s impractical to advise patients to stay out of the sun. So, instead they tell patients to just try to cut your exposure in half –which seems more doable. The EPA believes that 90% of skin changes associated with aging (such as wrinkles), are actually a result of UVA exposure! Sun damages elastin and causes a loss of collagen, which translates to drooping, a lost jawline, and wrinkles. It also adds discoloration and roughens texture and is the main cause of skin cancers.

Even if you’re not getting sun burned, if you’re in the sun unprotected, your skin is exposed to those damaging UVA rays, so be sure to cover up with a protective broad spectrum sunscreen for UVA/UVB protection.

Rejuvenate Those Tired-Looking Eyes

Even though there don’t appear to be long-term consequences of having tired eyes, it’s inconvenient and uncomfortable just the same. Most treatments for tired eyes can as simple as making changes in daily habits such as getting more rest and using appropriate lighting for reading and computer use.
Wrinkle Relaxer InjectionsBotox, Dysport or Xeomin for smoothing out wrinkles around the eye as well as offering a brow lifting effect can take years off your appearance.


While they can’t turn back the clock forever, some cosmetic procedures can also help skin regenerate cells. These choices may slow the rate of changes that cause deep wrinkles and a dull texture. Exfoliating through facials or microdermabrasion treatments can make skin look brighter.

A chemical peel is an advanced skin renewal procedure that stimulates collagen growth. The chemical solution causes the dead, dull outer layers of skins cells to separate and eventually peel off. This stimulates your skin to bring healthy, new cells to the surface for a brighter complexion.

If the outer layer of your skin is looking brown with a rough texture, chances are you have sun damage.
