Wish you could turn back the clock and get back that vibrant, glowing skin of yesteryear? Unfortunately, there is no way to turn back the time and actually grow younger, but you can take years off of your look with some simple, common treatments. Here are just a few:
Laser skin treatments utilize cutting-edge technology that can seem almost magical in its ability to cut years from your appearance. There are multiple types of laser treatments available. These safe and effective treatments can remove spider veins, make brown spots disappear, improve the suppleness of your skin, even out your skin pigmentation, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, tighten your skin, shrink your pores, and minimize scarring. Ask your doctor which laser skin treatments they recommend for you. The answer will vary depending on your skin type and goals.
Botox is a popular, relatively inexpensive, low-invasive treatment that can instantly make you look younger. Botox helps relax your muscles to prevent wrinkles from forming. This is done with the injection of a neurotoxin into the subcutaneous tissue surrounding the area of concern. The areas most often treated include the forehead, the inner brow area, and the outer eyes. Other popular areas to get Botox treatments are the frown lines around the mouth, the bunny lines around the nose, and the smoker’s lines that run from your upper lip to your nose. The best age to start Botox is before wrinkles become a problem–in your late 20s and early 30s. Each treatment should last 2-3 months or more.
Dermabrasion is a skin treatment used to reduce wrinkles, sun spots, and other sun damage. It uses a rotating brush to lift away the outer layer of your skin. This treatment can cause reddening, scabbing, and swelling for several weeks, so it is generally only used on small areas of the face. A less abrasive option is Microdermabrasion treatment. Because this treatment is less abrasive it doesn’t take as long to heal. However, it may require more treatments to get the same results as Dermabrasion.
People who don’t understand the amazing treatments available to fight aging will tell you to simply grow old gracefully. But why accept early signs of aging when you can keep youthful-looking skin well into your golden years? Go ahead and grow old gracefully, but take advantage of the miraculous treatments out there to look your best while doing it!
