“Everyone deserves to age gracefully and feel beautiful,” says Dr. Day. She points out that there is a difference between aging and getting old. “You will age,” she says, “but that doesn’t mean you have to sink, sag and wrinkle and look old. You can look beautiful at every age by doing what’s in your power with treatments and products, as well as with your lifestyle habits.” Dr. Day explains each treatment option from the deep to the superficial based on the patient’s individual characteristics and needs. “We’re not just chasing lines and wrinkles anymore,” she says. “I look at the face in a global way and create balance for a natural, beautiful look. For sinking, we use fillers to replace lost volume, and for sagging, we utilize lifting technologies like Ultherapy and Pellevé. If the patient has a lot of sun damage or deep lines and wrinkles, we can incorporate neuromodulators and a fractional laser, and to eliminate acne scars, we can use eMatrix or our new SkinPenTM, a needling device that triggers collagen synthesis for smoother skin.”
With so many beauty treatments and products promising to take years off your face, it’s hard to know what will make a real difference. In her book, Forget the Facelift, Dr. Day explains how to obtain healthy skin in four comprehensive steps without needing surgery. From ingredients that sabotage your skin and at-home remedies that treat problem areas to product recommendations, nutritional tips and the latest cutting-edge treatments, the book examines practical, creative and surprisingly easy ways to achieve luminous skin, as well as how to optimize the results.
