With spring just around the corner, now is the perfect time to refresh and rejuvenate your skin. Whether you’re fighting off signs of aging, correcting sun damage, or just looking for a smoother and firmer appearance, women today have a wide variety of options.
Let’s take a look at some of today’s most popular choices.
Photo Facials uses intense pulses of light to remove damaged, unwanted skin with precision, stimulating the formation of new layer of smooth, healthy skin. Laser treatment is a great choice for smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, treating age or sun damage, minimizing acne scars, removing liver spots, and evening out skin tone.
In addition to skin rejuvenation, Laser technology is also very effective in the treatment of spider veins. A long-pulse Nd-YAG laser targets the hemoglobin in enlarged capillaries, which becomes thermally coagulated and are then absorbed by the body. This is also a safe and effective treatment for those who suffer from rosacea.
Microdermabrasion is a gentle exfoliation procedure performed with medical grade mineral crystals or a diamond tip, brushing the skin’s surface with the aid of a gentle vacuum. Microdermabrasion is effective for treating scars, fine lines, sun damage, blemishes, enlarged pores, and uneven skin tone.
Dermal Fillers are sometimes referred to as “liquid facelifts,” and are an attractive, non-surgical option for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Injectable fillers restore volume to the skin, smoothing out lines and wrinkles. Some popular dermal fillers being used by top plastic surgeons are Juvaderm®, Restylane®, Radiesse® and Sculptra®.
Botox® injections are the most commonly performed minimally-invasive procedure used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. Botox® blocks the nerve muscles responsible for the repetitive actions that cause fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing them away for a younger and more refreshed appearance.
Facials. Sometimes just a good facial is all you need to leave you refreshed. Most beauty and med spas offer basic, deep-cleansing or acne facials, and many also offer add-on treatments enhanced with vitamins and natural supplements to improve elasticity and even treat fine lines and wrinkles.
Combination facial treatments. Combining many of the skin care methods above can produce a synergistic effect of facial rejuvenation. A common pairing is the simultaneous use of Botox® and Dermal Fillers to dramatically reduce the appearance of unwanted facial wrinkles.
