A Comprehensive Guide to Anti-Aging Procedures in Pearl River, NY

As we grow old, our physical outlook tends to change, however, some people tend to look younger even in their old age. This is mainly determined by their lifestyle– with the right care for your skin, you can maintain your youth even as you age. 

How Skin Ages

The rate of skin aging depends on several factors including the environment, your lifestyle, and your genetics. There are two different types of aging:

1. Intrinsic Aging

This is an inevitable, continuous process that occurs naturally. Intrinsic aging happens when your body’s cellular and biological functions begin to slow down. As your cells and tissue begin to deteriorate, your skin’s flexible matrix begins to weaken.

2. Extrinsic Aging

Both environmental and lifestyle factors cause this aging process. These may include pollution, ultraviolet rays, smoking, and lack of exercise. All these factors expose the skin to free radicals that are highly reactive and unstable molecules made by the body. They tend to cause oxidative stress, which can lead to inflammation. Persistent inflammation weakens the skin structure by inducing it.

Signs of Aging


Wrinkles are characterized as lines or creases on your skin. When the components that keep the skin firm begin to degrade, they cause the formation of wrinkles. The degradation causes the skin to lose moisture and elasticity, causing it to fold.

Sagging Skin

The reduction of collagen and elastin in your dermis can cause sagging skin. Your skin then starts to hang more loosely, developing jowls and excessive folds within the skin.

Procedures for Anti-aging

Reflections Medical by Dr. Fiorillo offers professional facelift surgery and helps with muscle tightening. Dr. Fiorillo will use one of two techniques depending on the situation:

1. Traditional Facelift

This is a full facelift that includes skin trimming, repositioning, and lifting of muscle tissues. It starts at the temple, to the front of the ear, and then to the lower scalp. 

2. Limited-Incision Facelift

This is for limited rejuvenation around the mouth, eyes, and the ears. It also happens under the lips or in the lower eyelids. Scars hide in the natural contours of the hairline and face. 

After the surgery, we give instructions to ensure you recover well with minimal discomfort. Bruising and swelling may last up to two weeks after the surgery.
