Q: I’m concerned about wrinkles on my face. I don’t want to get Botox or go with fillers. Is there a natural alternative?

Genetically, a person is somewhat predisposed as to how well they will age. There are many factors that contribute to early aging, but the number one factor is the sun. A physical sunscreen with a SPF of 20 or more will protect your skin from damaging and aging UVA rays. When worn daily (even in the winter months), you can prevent the early onset of wrinkles. Secondly, an individually designed skin care regimen that includes cleansing, moisturizing and exfoliating will keep your skin healthy and vibrant.

There are many non-invasive options to help slow or reduce the appearance of wrinkles including our newest aesthetic treatment called HydraFacial. This state-of-the-art in-salon treatment will cleanse, exfoliate, and deeply penetrate dermal building peptides into the skin to promote a youthful radiance.  Results are immediate and with no down time.

For an at-home alternative and/or ancillary care, simply incorporate peptides into your regimen. They come in a variety of products, however are most commonly found in a serum or crème form. Peptides penetrate the surface of the skin to stimulate collagen production.  Collagen is the protein-rich connective tissue that gives shape and support to many tissues, including skin.  More facial collagen equals a more youthful appearance. The HydroPeptide product line – available at Simonson’s – is the industry leader in peptide technology.

For best results, consult an aesthetician who can assist you in determining the most effective treatment regimen for your particular skin needs.  All of Simonson’s aestheticians are trained to make recommendations that present a conscientious balance between cost and efficacy.
