Most of us would admit that we long for younger-looking, brighter, smoother skin. Sadly, it’s impossible to avoid the ageing process. But there are some treatments out there that can help you revive and rejuvenate your skin. Here are some of the best non-surgical facial treatments to try if you’re hoping to roll back the years and enjoy youthful, radiant skin for years to come.
Microdermabrasion is a powerful exfoliation treatment. It removes dead skin cells and promotes cell renewal. Using a specially designed instrument, the practitioner will gently apply pressure to the surface of the skin. The contact and friction will break up the surface skin layer, removing any dead cells. A jet of tiny exfoliating crystals is aimed at the skin to pave the way for a new layer of cells to develop. The end result is brighter, clearer skin. Microdermabrasion is often recommended for people who have uneven skin tone. It can also benefit those who have acne scarring or chicken pox marks.
Are you dreaming of clear, fresh looking skin for spring/summer? If so, a chemical peel could be just what you’ve been searching for. Chemical peels are designed to tackle signs of ageing, such as lines and wrinkles. They can also help to reduce the visibility of age spots and sun damage. When you have a peel, a practitioner will place a chemical mask on your face for a period of time. There are various strengths available and you can tailor your treatment to suit your skin type. Before you have treatment, you will be asked to follow some basic skin care instructions. You usually have a series of sessions, which take place around 3-4 weeks apart. After the final treatment, you should find that you have a lovely healthy glow.
Botox treatment has become incredibly popular. Most people choose to have Botox to reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. This is a temporary solution, which works by blocking nerve signals to the facial muscles. This causes the muscles to relax, smoothing out wrinkles and folds. Botox is most commonly used to target lines around the eyes, mouth and forehead. Treatment takes less than half an hour and the results become visible within a few days. The effects last between three and six months. The procedure involves using a very fine needle to inject a small amount of Botox into specific areas of the skin.
Dermal fillers have taken the world by storm. Fillers are used to combat signs of ageing, which are linked to depleted collagen stores. Collagen is the fibre, which gives the skin its firmness and bounce. Fillers are injected into the skin to add volume. They can help to address wrinkles and create more definition. The results usually last up to nine months.
Most of us wish we could have youthful skin forever. While that may be an impossible dream, it is possible to slow the ageing process. These innovative techniques could help to make you look and feel ten years younger.
