CT Post: New Year, New Technologies: Esana’s Plastic Surgeons Reveal the Best Non-Invasive Anti-Aging Technologies for 2021
Heading into the new year, many of us are having the same thought: after 2020, I need an upgrade. Seeing our faces staring back at us from our screens this last year had many of us realizing just how much we’ve aged. In the past, some may have turned to injections or plastic surgery to help reverse the signs of aging, and while these treatments are effective, they carry certain physical risks and recovery times.
Times have changed. Now there are multiple non-invasive, effective anti-aging treatments with little to no necessary recovery time offered by plastic surgery centers and select MedSpas around the country. Ultherapy, Morpheus8/Fractora, and Evoke are 3 treatments that fight the effects of aging—sagging skin, wrinkles, and sun damage—without the use of scalpels or injections. By naturally stimulating your body’s collagen production, these alternatives to more invasive procedures can produce stunning results.
Esana Medspa offers a range of non-invasive (and invasive) treatments for all ages. To help you achieve your goal of maintaining a youthful appearance, our staff have the unique benefit of consulting with two board-certified plastic surgeons on a daily basis. Dr. Pan and Dr. Davila agree there are many benefits to developing a regimen of treatments and products to fight visible signs of aging. Below are their customizable recommendations to consider based on age:
Donna is a patient at Esana MedSpa. She learned about Esana when her favorite Esthetician, Vickie, joined our team. Donna says, “When I found out Vickie was going to Esana, I knew I was too!” As Donna began to see signs of aging, she knew who to ask for advice.
Donna met Dr. Davila who she describes as “a great educator who is subtle in his approach and wants patients to make their own decision after being armed with information.”
Over the past couple of decades the search for improvement in appearance and preservation of a youthful appearance has shifted from a purely female dominated quest to one that includes men in increasing numbers. Following are the five most commonly sought-after procedures in our practice.
What is your new year’s resolution? A new diet, more exercise, maybe a new job, or even a vacation long overdue? Or is this the year you finally fix the one body issue that concerns you most, from abdominal changes after pregnancy to stubborn frown lines that make you look like your mother—when she’s angry.
You can’t cover up, disguise, or hide a double chin. There it is—every time you look in the mirror—an imperfection usually impossible to diet or exercise away. Fortunately, there are two non-surgical options that can virtually eliminate your double chin, with no downtime required.
If your skin is still relatively tight, you may be the perfect candidate for the CoolMini from CoolSculpting® or Kybella, a fat dissolving injectable. People with loose skin or major wrinkles around the chin and neck may require non-invasive skin tightening with Ultherapy or a surgical face and neck lift.
20’s: In our twenties, skin starts to slow down its renewal process and things like dryness and lines can start to form. Earlier damage from sun exposure can also surface with increased freckling and blotchy pigmentation. In this decade it is important to make sure your skin product regimen is correctly tailored for your skin. Retin-A based products (such as our Esana Essential) would be important to stop small lines from forming and to maintain collagen production. Sun avoidance is also necessary to prevent looking like a dried leather bag in the future. For some women, early forehead or frown lines may need Botox treatment to reverse and prevent them from etching the skin.Continue Reading Sound advice for your aging face
The first signs of aging often begin with crows feet or “smile lines” around the eyes. As we get older, this delicate skin is especially vulnerable to wrinkling since we repeatedly compress the skin as we smile, laugh, frown, or squint. As early as the mid 20’s, our skin starts to lose its elasticity, and these delicate lines become more permanently etched around our eyes.Continue Reading Preventing and Smoothing Crows Feet, the First Signs of Aging

No matter how youthful your face may be, a wrinkled and sun-damaged neck and décolletage area is aging and detracts from a healthy, young appearance. As we age, our skin’s main support structure, collagen, starts to break down, and the fat under the skin deteriorates. Consequently, our skin becomes drier, thinner, with less volume.Continue Reading Is Your Neck Aging You?
