In the movie Steel Magnolias, Dolly Parton’s character Truvy says, “Honey, time marches on and eventually you realize it is marchin’ across your face.” The character speaks truth, because our skin and body will definitely look different as we age. Wrinkles will appear. Skins will sag and that is the truth.
In this video, Dr. Johnson discusses the different procedures and approaches used to combat skin aging. In treating a condition, multiple treatments have to be done. You may have been directed by your doctor to lose weight, exercise and take in 2-3 medications. For cancer cases, usually there would be surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. The reason for these multiple treatments is because the problem must be approached from different directions. The same goes for anti-aging treatments.
In the movie “Death Becomes Her,” Meryl Streep drinks a potion and becomes young again. Don’t we all wish to turn back the clock and be young again as easy as that? With recent innovations, this dream can be made into reality. In this video, Dr. Johnson discusses procedures and products that can turn back the clock.
Dr. Johnson opens the discussion with an explanation of multi-modal therapy. This involves addressing the different modalities of a person in order to treat a disease like high-blood pressure or diabetes. Each of these modalities is like pieces of a puzzle and requires a different approach. This is the reason why we are given two or three medications in order to treat an ailment. The same goes with procedures in order to care for our body.
