Let us all just call a spade a spade. We HATE growing old.
In the episode of Friends where Rachel turned 30, she was a picture of torment, despite the party that was being thrown for her.
The kicker? She actually looked (and still looks dare I say) stunning for her age.
We all dread growing up, but we fear growing old. While growing up comes with a new set of responsibilities, growing old comes with a new set of…liabilities.
Liabilities like wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, turkey neck, pigmentation, blemishes, eye bags, crow’s feet… you get the drift.
What happens when all your skincare products cannot keep up with the merciless onslaught of time? What if these products actually make your skin condition worse?
Sifting through all the false advertising for age-defying alternatives that actually bear results take a painstaking kind of dedication, because your skin, like your age is very sensitive.
We have thus saved you all the trouble, by picking out 5 of the best ones in the market just for you.
The Youth Savant
This treatment should be a breath of fresh air to most, and a proud testament to the giant strides made in aesthetic technology.
While most treatments are targeted at treating the symptoms of aging, the Youth Savant dives beyond the depth of the skin; it goes right for the jugular and deals with the root cause of aging: our DNA.
Making use of its core ingredient known in condensed terms as PDRN, this ingredient engages key receptors in the body that trigger skin salvation pathways for your skin, activating its healing and anti-inflammatory properties.
Aside from its regenerative abilities, PDRN also protects skin cells from UV-induced damage. UV exposure from the sun is one of the most certain ways to expedite the aging process. The presence of PDRN greatly enhances the speed of skin repair after sun exposure.
Method of application? A series of micro-injections that you will feel extremely little of…because of the copious amounts of numbing cream that will be applied on you.

Good skin is almost all about the c-word. Collagen is a key structural component that keeps your skin silky smooth and supple. The lack of collagen could be detrimental for your skin. Think fine lines, saggy cheeks, wrinkles, the whole nine yards.
A procedure like Dream Sculpture uses the uber-effective Sculptra filler to boost the collagen content and production efficiency. A healthy level of collagen keeps your skin lifted, supple and glowing with health.
A word of caution though – some of you might be allergic to the contents of Sculptra. It is strongly suggested to make an appointment with a doctor who can adequately advise you on whether you can undergo this procedure.
