Types of Skin Rejuvenation Treatments
As mentioned above, there are plenty of skin rejuvenation treatments. This part of the article will cover several of them and provide you with skin restoration treatment information.
What is Microneedling?
This facial rejuvenation treatment stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. When a person undergoes this procedure, there are substances applied to their skin, such as hyaluronic or ascorbic acid. These are applied in order to penetrate deep into the skin, and a professional uses an instrument with small sharp needles on the skin. This procedure has minimal risks and is painless.
What about Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are treatments that involve resurfacing the skin with a solution that helps peel away the outer layers of the skin. Once done, this treatment leaves the skin smooth and healthy. What’s more, this facial rejuvenation treatment can tighten, brighten and tone the complexion and reduce discoloration, blotchiness, and age spots.
There are also two types of chemical peels – light and deep chemical peels. The light type uses a mild solution (alpha hydroxy acid, fruit enzymes, or glycolic acid) and affects only the outer layer of the skin. The deep type can reach deeper layers of the skin, and some of the deep chemical peels may require anesthesia.
Wondering about Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that a person can use on their hands, face, neck, or body. Microdermabrasion treats one area of your skin with exfoliation by a mist of abrasive particles. Then, the exfoliated skin is vacuumed away, and this treatment is safe for all skin types and has almost no side effects. What’s more, this skin restoration treatment can minimize wrinkles and fine lines, as well as reduce acne scars and age spots.
Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment
This skin restoration treatment is also known as lasabrasion, laser vaporization, and laser peel. It is known to reduce blemishes, facial wrinkles, and scars. In general, this skin rejuvenation treatment can help improve skin complexion, aging signs or sun damage, as well acne scars, fine lines, warts, and wrinkles on the forehead, around the mouth, and under the eyes.
Also, there are two types of lasers that are used in this skin resurfacing procedure:
- Abrasive – this procedure uses intense light on the skin, similar to wavelength. The outer layer of the sun-damaged or aged skin is removed in this procedure, and the laser stimulants the underlying skin and forms collagen. As soon as the skin heals after treatment, new skin grows tighter and smoother.
- Non-abrasive – this treatment improves the appearance of sun-damaged skin, wrinkles, scars, and age spots without applying any damage to the surface of the skin.
Intense Pulsed Light – IPL Treatment
IPL is a treatment that helps rejuvenate the complexion and can help with pigmentation problems. This procedure uses a broad spectrum of light wavelengths that are then used to briefly pulse over the skin. This light absorbs excessive pigment and restores an even complexion. What’s more, IPL can stimulate collagen production, which improves the overall skin tone. During this treatment, there is no removal of the skin.
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
The procedure of dermal fillers can help restore skin’s volume and fullness in the face. They can also help reduce or get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. With dermal fillers, a person can delay the signs of aging without undergoing any cosmetic surgery, including brow, eye, and facelift. If a person decides to go for dermal fillers, the results can be a softer skin with no wrinkles, an improved appearance of scars, and a decrease in the shadow of lower lids.
Botulinum Toxin Type A a.k.a. Botox Treatment
Last but not least, botox is a popular treatment for skin rejuvenation. It can weaken certain muscles by blocking the nerves, which then provides smoother skin and fewer facial wrinkles. The effects can last from three to 12 months, but this treatment has a higher risk of some side effects, including bruising, pain, and swelling at the injection site.
Today, there are plenty of various skin restoration treatments that can help people be more satisfied with their looks. With these treatments, a person can feel more self-confident and have healthier skin. If you are thinking about undergoing any of these treatments, make sure to consult with your doctor first and make your appointment.
