Why Do I Look So Old (And What Can I Do About It)?

Time can be cruel. Yes, the years get filled with treasured memories and valuable lessons. But as they pass by, they take a toll on your appearance. What started as a couple of fine lines deepens into a furrow. Freckles get replaced by larger, darker age spots. You might peer into the mirror and think you look a whole lot older than you feel.

Fortunately, you don’t have to sit idly by as time marches on. Tap Elaine Phuah, DO, MBA, FACOI, to help you. Here at Hanami Medspa in Fort Worth, Texas, she applies her expertise in medical aesthetics to help turn back the clock and reclaim your youthful appearance. She can directly address the things making you look old with options like skin resurfacing and cosmetic injectables

But first, let’s look at why your appearance is changing in the first place.

What ages us

It’s a given that getting older means looking older. But what, exactly, causes your face to change through the years?

There’s a potent combination working against you here. The sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays work from the outside in, damaging your skin cells and contributing to dark spots, wrinkles, and more. 

At the same time, your body makes less collagen. This protein is the scaffolding for your skin, keeping it tight, smooth, and supple. As your natural collagen levels dip over time, your skin gets thinner and saggier, contributing to wrinkles and an overall aged look. 

The good news? You’re not stuck. 

What you can do

If you’ve wondered why you look so old, it’s time to schedule a consultation with Dr. Phuah. Talk with her about what’s bothering you and let her evaluate your unique skin. Then, Dr. Phuah can tailor a treatment plan for you.

That might mean nanofractional radiofrequency skin resurfacing, which sends therapeutic heat into your skin, or SkinPen microneedling to stimulate new collagen production. It could mean Botox® or fillers to smooth wrinkles and replenish volume where you need it. 

Or Dr. Phuah might recommend a chemical peel or intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment to eliminate age spots. Alternatively or additionally, you can also explore triLift® dynamic muscle stimulation to help reduce wrinkles by toning your facial muscles. 

Ultimately, you have options. And Dr. Phuah has the expertise to tailor a plan that addresses your specific aging woes to help you turn back the clock and look as young as you feel — or even younger. 

To explore the variety of treatment options at your disposal, don’t hesitate to talk with Dr. Phuah. You might feel like you look old today, but there’s a lot you can do about it. Call Hanami Medspa or schedule your consultation with Dr. Phuah online to get started.
