Here are some of the most-asked health questions we at Longevity often receive – answered.

1.What is the best thing I can do for my aging face?

Botulinum toxin injectables – most commonly referred to by their trade names Botox and Dysport – are one of the most versatile and effective anti-aging treatments available. Non-invasive treatments that can help with healthy cellular turnover include chemical peels, non-ablative fractional laser therapy (Fraxel) and radiofrequency therapy (Ulthera and

Thermage).

2. What is the one thing that accelerates aging the most?health | Longevity LIVE

One of the most important factors has proven to be stress. Others that shouldn’t be ignored include sun exposure, air pollutants, diet, alcohol consumption and cigarette use.

3. What is the one skincare product that will save my skin?

The most essential product is a broad-spectrum sunscreen, as it will protect you against both ultraviolent and infrared radiation, and help to repair any damage that has already been done.

4. When should I have a facelift?

Surgery isn’t the quick anti-aging fix you may think it is. It has no actual benefit for your skin and therefore should be used only if absolutely necessary, once you have put your non-invasive procedures in place.

5. How do I stop my facial features from sagging without surgery?

Fillers are a great option, and shouldn’t be confused with botulinum toxin injectables. They add volume, smooth out the deep creases and augment your skin.

8. What type of diet will positively impact on the way I age?

The two diets recommended for healthy aging are the Mediterranean diet and the anti-inflammatory diet. Both of these wil be beneficial to your health.
