Is Your Anti-Aging Plan Right For Your Skin?

newbeauty logoOriginal Article by NewBeauty Editors. When it comes to finding an anti-aging plan that will preserve your skin for years to come, the current state of your skin must be considered. Rather than slathering on any anti-aging product, make sure what you opt for is compatible with what your skin needs. [Source: NewBeauty.com]

Not all products are the same, especially when it comes to those that fight aging. When a product is tagged as “anti-aging” it typically means that it contains active ingredients that have a proven track record at slowing or reversing the signs of aging. “In general, the ingredients used in anti-aging products are pretty much the same, but the formulations may vary, and you may need to make adjustments according to your skin type at a certain age,” says New York dermatologist Robyn Gmyrek, MD.

If you have sensitive skin:

Some of the best ingredients for anti-aging may be too harsh or too irritating if you have sensitive skin. Ingredients, such as AHAs, glycolic acid and retinoids, can disrupt your skin’s protective barrier, leaving you red, itchy or broken out. Instead, choose more gentle ingredients such as vitamins C or E, or their botanical counterparts.

If you’re worried about breakouts:

When it comes to tackling acne and anti-aging, many patients veer toward combating breakouts and therefore neglect their anti-aging efforts. The reason: The more visible problem at hand takes precedence. So, when faced with both, do you have to choose one over the other? Absolutely not. You can treat both as long as you use the right ingredients. “Glycolic acid, retinol and AHAs are effective for treating both acne & anti-aging, so you get a double-duty effect,” says Dr. Gmyrek.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can EMSCULPT NEO do for me?

EMSCULPT NEO is an amazing noninvasive body sculpting treatment. It’s perfect for patients who are looking to get summer body ready! With this state-of-the-art, two-in-one technology, you build muscle and burn fat at the same time! This treatment provides a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat and 25% growth in muscle on the treated area after a recommended number of treatments.

How does EMSCULPT NEO work?

While you lie down and relax, EMSCULPT NEO sends high-intensity energies deep below your skin, making your muscles contract in a big way that is like doing thousands of crunches or squats in a few minutes. While your muscles are contracting, the energy from the applicator simultaneously sends warmth to your fat cells, heating them up to the point of destruction. So you build real muscle from the contractions while destroying fat cells that are later naturally eliminated by your body.

How many EMCULPT NEO treatments will I need?

The recommended treatment plan is 4-6 treatments, one week apart. Depending on the patient, you may see improvement in your muscle tone, core strength and posture within a few weeks. And you’ll see fat reduction continue for about 12 weeks after your last treatment.

Are there any patients for whom you do not recommend EMSCULPT NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO is great because it has been shown to be safe and approved for all body and skin types. Contraindications include hernia, recent surgery, and pregnancy, so if a patient has any of these conditions, they should wait until they don’t to get EMSCULPT NEO.

What is the difference between CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT NEO?

CoolSculpting is a well-known treatment that is excellent for reducing unwanted fat in targeted areas. EMSCULPT NEO also reduces fat, but it has the benefit of building muscle, which is what its predecessor EMSCULPT was made to do.

Which treatment you choose depends on what your body needs and your personal goals. If you have great muscle tone and only need to get rid of some extra fat in a specific area like your abdomen or below your chin, CoolSculpting is an excellent option. But if you have loss of muscle tone and need more of a lift or tightening to a certain area like your abs or butt, EMSCULPT NEO is your two-in-one solution.

What is your favorite thing about EMSCULPT NEO?

Not only is this treatment super convenient with one treatment lasting only 30 minutes, but there is also no downtime! Patients can go about their day as they normally would immediately after their visit.
