Scientifically Proven Ways to Rejuvenate Your Skin
When we hear the words ‘skincare’, most of us immediately think of moisturizer, sunscreen, and soap, but these are practically antiques of the cosmetic world. These days, super-advanced technology is totally revolutionizing the way we look after our skin.
Modern beauty treatments and procedures have been shown to be significantly more effective than traditional skincare products in dealing with all of the common skin problems such as acne, blemishes, wrinkles, and sagginess. The rejuvenating and anti-aging capabilities of this new generation of cosmetic technologies mean that we can all look better than ever by giving our skin a fresh lease of life.
To help advise everyone out there who is looking for new skincare techniques and technologies, here are six scientifically proven ways to rejuvenate skin.
Botox is the most famous of all anti-aging treatments but many people still mistakenly believe that it is an invasive treatment. In fact, it takes just a tiny amount of botox to be injected to have great results. Botox relaxes your muscles and so relieves tension causing wrinkles. Botox is fast and pain-free and you will be able to see noticeable results after a couple of days. In order to maintain your youthful-looking skin, you will need to get botox two or three times a year. There can be some minor side effects such as a little swelling but this will go away the next day.
2. Ultherapy® Treatment
Ultherapy® treatment is specially designed to penetrate to the deeper layers of your skin to stimulate and encourage the production of collagen. For many people, non invasive Ultherapy® can be very effective in rejuvenating the skin. It does this by focusing ultrasound heat energy right down into the skin layers which helps to tighten your skin and prevent wrinkles and sagging. Ultherapy® treatment has been cleared as totally safe by the FDA and while it can be a little costly, it is convenient, pain-free, and has very little recovery time.
3. Skin Tightening
Another non invasive treatment that also works by stimulating collagen production is called radiofrequency skin tightening. This uses a device that emits energy directly into your skin, heating up the layers and increasing the rate your cells produce collagen. This helps to tighten up any saggy, aging skin and can be used anywhere on your body. While radiofrequency skin tightening can be very effective, it can take up to ten sessions to see the results.
Microneedling may sound scary, but it is not very painful at all. The microneedling professional uses a roller with tiny needles and rolls them all over the skin on your face and body. They create microscopic tears which then heals and rejuvenates your skin. The healing process causes the production of additional collagen which increases the elasticity and tightness of your skin. For the best effects, you will usually need to have at least five microneedling sessions. Microneedling has been shown to be effective in treating stretch marks and the scars left behind by acne.
Another popular non-surgical skin treatment is dermal fillers. Like botox, dermal fillers work by injection, but they inject synthetic soft tissue under your skin. This fills the area out, stretching out all your wrinkles and loose skin folds. This plumping out of your skin means that derma fillers are far more effective than botox and can be used to hide burns, scars, and wounds, and to plump out your lips and cheeks.
6. Chemical Peels
Exfoliating is a very important process for having beautiful skin as it removes the layers of dead skin and grime to reveal the fresh, clean skin underneath. Chemical peels exfoliate your skin with a bang and are one of the most affordable rejuvenating procedures. A liquid solution is applied to your skin which exfoliates the top layer, leaving only the tighter, smoother skin below. Chemical peels have a range of uses from treating acne scars, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, and evening out skin tones. You can also choose to have a deeper medical-grade peel which can help to treat more serious skin problems but these can only be done by a licensed professional as they can be potentially harmful.
