As our bodies age, the larynx, vocal cords, and our voice-producing mechanism age as well. This causes age-related voice changes such as:
- Changes in pitch
- Reduction of volume and endurance
- Voice tremors
- Voice weakness
Aging Voice Treatments
Voice therapy can help preserve and optimize your voice. A speech-language pathologist can prescribe vocal exercises to improve your vocal stamina and projection abilities.
In-office procedures can also improve the aging voice. For example, vocal cord injections with fillers can enlarge or “bulk up” the vocal cords. For vocal tremor, injections of botulinum toxin can decrease the severity of the tremulous quality.
