As the leading anti-aging and skin clinic in Toronto, Anti Aging Clinic provides some of the best non-invasive techniques to help our clients fight the effects of aging. However, there are steps you can take at home between treatments that will keep your skin and entire body young and healthy well into your “golden years.”
Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are two neurological disorders that affect seniors. One of the most recognized ways to fight the effect of cognitive decline is to keep your mind stimulated. This is surprisingly easy to do: simply reading a book, learning a new language, or observing your surroundings can keep your mind stimulated.
We’re always told to eat well, but it turns out that eating a healthy diet also helps us to age well. Fruits, vegetables, and whole grains provide minerals and nutrients, while drinking eight eight-ounce glasses of water and trying to cut down on the amount of fat you consume offers health benefits.
It may sound surprising, but having some form of spiritual belief can also contribute to a long and happy life. But this doesn’t mean having to embrace religion, it can be something as simple as taking up yoga or meditation; people who practice both have been found to greatly reduce their levels of stress and depression.
Or you can just start exercising. Studies have found that regular exercise improves bone density, stamina, muscle strength, and balance. As we age, having good bone density is essential, as the risk of fractures increases.
We at Anti Aging Clinic also recommend increasing your consumption of foods containing antioxidants. Free radicals contribute to the effects of aging, but eating foods rich in antioxidants, such as dark vegetables and berries, will neutralize the effects of free radicals and keep you looking, as well as feeling young. You can also get antioxidants via vitamin supplements.
Getting a good night’s sleep is another good way to fight the effects of aging. People who don’t get enough sleep are susceptible to infections and face and increase in the risk of heart attack and stroke. Not getting enough sleep can also negatively affect your mood, which in turn can lead to physical issues.
Finally, another method you might want to try is taking hormones; a decline in hormones often leads to a loss in energy. However, consult with your doctor first to make sure that this method is right for you.
Combine these with the anti-aging treatments we offer at our skin clinic in Toronto and you’ll stay looking youthful for years to come! Our most popular treatment is the laser facial, known as Laser Genesis. This treatment will help you to maintain healthy skin by promoting your own collagen. Or if you’re looking to rejuvenate your skin while evening out its tone and texture, we recommend our Laser Spectra Peel. Additionally, we also offer microdermabrasion and chemical peels that promote healthy skin. Give us a call to determine which treatment is right for you!
