Aging creeps up on you, and no matter how many people have gotten older before you, it’s still uncharted territory to you. Perhaps you start with a few gray hairs. Then maybe you start to feel less energetic, and then you fight with a fairly significant health issue or two. The gradual nature of aging can mean that it arrives before you know it.
We get it.
We’re getting older, too.
If you aren’t prepared, you might not get to take advantage of all the methods that are available to you to look and feel your best. And if you rely on the methods that your parents or grandparents used to age gracefully, you’ll be missing out on all the latest technologies and medical breakthroughs that could have made a huge difference to maximize your health, well-being, vitality, and good looks.
Here are just a few tips from our anti-aging clinic in Metairie for how you can maintain your youthfulness and do your body a favor.
1. Anti-aging starts from the inside out, not the outside in.
The reason your body looks older on the outside is because of changes going on in the inside. If you make cosmetic procedures your #1 focus but don’t also maintain your nutrition, you’ll be selling yourself short.
2. Boosting your inner vigor and vitality is deeper than just diet.
If eating were the key to anti-aging, then most Westerners in the 21st century simply wouldn’t get old. With the affluence to eat three meals a day and the infrastructure to have a huge variety of healthy food choices, you’d think that people would find a way to eat that would halt the aging process. But we haven’t. It goes much deeper than that. Aging involves a biological breakdown. Hormones that our bodies used to create in abundance aren’t being created anymore. Low levels of these hormones and other important molecules lead to a chain reaction of further breakdown.
3. You can get the hormones that your body isn’t making any more.
Modern medical technology doesn’t need to rely on synthetic drugs or artificial chemicals to give you the supplements you need for anti-aging. Now it’s possible to get bioidentical hormones delivered right to your bloodstream. Bioidentical means that the hormones are exactly the same as the ones that your own cells create, so the cells will recognize and accept them for the jobs they need to do. Rejuvime Medical offers bioidentical hormone therapy for anti-aging in our Metairie and Baton Rouge locations, and you’ll feel the benefit when you start this treatment.
4. Ask your blood what it knows.
At no other time in history have we had such a powerful ability to go from guesswork and experiments to real knowledge. We’ve come a long way from the days of George Washington when they thought blood was toxic and had to be removed from the body when a person got sick. A full blood panel can tell you exactly what your baseline is, allow you to identify any deficiencies, and give you a way to test your levels to see if the treatment is working.
5. Help your skin to keep up with your hair dye.
Have you ever seen a person from the back with dark hair dye, and then you see their face only to realize that their skin is terribly wrinkled? Just because you’re working on improving the inside of your body doesn’t mean you have to neglect the outside. One easy option is to try cosmetic injectables. There are many options, including Botox, Juvederm, and Radiesse, that our anti-aging clinic can offer you, so ask us for advice on which one would work best for you.
