How to Reverse Skin Aging

PRP and PRF are amazing. Are you talking about micro needling that on the face to help with wrinkles? I had not heard of this.

Yes, it’s about prevention! Do it often and your face will stay youthful for years (under a condition that your weight is stable for years). Did not try PRP and PRF yet. If you try it pls share your experience.

It’s not exactly microneedling, but rather an injection directly into the skin. Supposedly, it works by boosting collagen and elastin production, similar to how it aids in regenerating joints and bones. The effects after a few sessions are said to last for a few years. I haven’t delved deeply into researching it yet.

I sure will.

I asked. I had lefovers :sweat_smile: It sounds like I had quite the mixture! Approximately 1.7 ml of Juvederm Volite mesotherapy, 0.8 ml of Teosyal Redensity 1, and 1 ml of polynucleotide gel with 7.5 mg/ml concentration (although not a commercial product, there are likely similar ones available).

The Volite was applied all around my face, excluding the nose and eye area, while the Redensity 1 was specifically used around my eyes and eyelids. It seems like I might want to repeat the Redensity 1 treatment in a few weeks. The polynucleotide gel was used to enhance areas where there’s more noticeable loss of skin volume, such as the brows, temples, chin, and under the eyes.

It seems like I’ll need to wait a bit longer for the full results to kick in, likely around week 3 or 4. Patience is key when it comes to seeing the complete effects of these treatments.

I was using DMSO as penetration enhancer. Would be great to know at which protocol of application it causes fat loss (strength, frequency). Facial fat loss is definitely to avoid!

I’m not a fan of using DMSO (at least in high concentrations) as a skin penetration enhancer. See this commentary on DMSO and other penetration enhancers from a dermatology textbook: Rapamycin for Hair Growth and Hair Pigmentation - #320 by RapAdmin

Sorry I’m well behind the curve to respond to this, but there’s definitely some chatter about Fotona removing fay from below the facial skin and giving a worse (older) appearance. Probably a less-skilled operator, but still: a risk I’m personally not willing to take.

(Yes, this is only one reddit thread and not a clinical trial with a appropriately powered double-blinded control group of sufficient size, but there appeared to be a lot of this type of chatter. )

I’ve been using a serum containing vitamin C, vitamin E, and ferulic acid for a few years now. I started taking it a few years ago at the recommendation of my brother. That was before I really got interested in longevity, so I’ve never looked into the actual research on this combination, but subjectively I’ve always been impressed by the results.

I was actually surprised reading through this thread, where I only saw one mention of this combination—it’s also part of Bryan Johnson’s regimen.

I do the same with very good results. A more affordable copy of Skinceuticals Ferulic CE. Have no affiliation with either company.

I did use it for few years, but I hated the smell of it after few hours. It smelled like burnt skin. I also find that if you use tretinoin there was no added benefit I could observe just additional hassle of another product. I also think it made my skin more oily.
