A reality of ageing is that our skin loses its radiance. Many external factors contribute to premature ageing, including stress, exposure to the sun, facial mannerisms and ever-present gravity. But younger looking skin isn’t out of reach, and a range of procedures and treatments are now available that don’t demand the same investment of time, recovery and often money, but produce the same results in rejuvenating your skin. But what benefits can such skin rejuvenation treatments offer?
Boost collagen production
Collagen is an essential building block to healthy, smooth and radiant skin. Unfortunately, with age, there is a drop in natural collagen levels that leads to loss of volume and the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Skin tightening laser therapies have been proven to stimulate collagen production, which effectively causes your skin to tighten. These treatments reduce wrinkles, crow’s feet and fine lines and result in much more youthful looking skin without resorting to expensive and invasive surgical procedures.
Get rid of droopy eyelids and saggy jawlines
The world of aesthetics has undergone a radical change. People today have easy access to state-of-the-art facilities and cutting-edge skin rejuvenation treatments. Facelifts, brow lifts and eyelid lifts are some of the most popular and effective cosmetic surgical procedures for facial rejuvenation. The extent and effect of these surgeries depends largely on an individual’s condition and aesthetic desires. Consultation with a reliable cosmetic surgeon and expert clinical assessment, advice and recommendations are the best way to discern how to deal with these issues.
Erase pigmentation and dark spots
Some skin rejuvenation procedures can be effective in minimising scars, fading dark spots and erasing pigmentation and other skin imperfections. Dermabrasion is a technique that helps in effective removal of the superficial layers of your skin with a fast revolving abrasive tool such as a diamond wheel. Chemical peels result in exfoliation of the surface skin with an effective chemical agent. The final outcome for either is a radiant and glowing complexion. Be mindful that these treatments are only prescribed in reputed clinics and administered under expert supervision.
Regain a youthful appearance
Anti-wrinkle injections are not meant for boosting collagen but are effective at preserving your already existing collagen. These convenient injections work by relaxing the muscles associated with facial expression in the forehead, frown areas and crow’s feet. In the short-term these injections can restrict facial expressions, however this effect does wear off.
Lift, tighten and tone the skin
Ultherapy is recent, non-invasive procedure that is effective in lifting sagging skin, reducing necklines and enhancing the overall appearance of wrinkles. During ultherapy, ultrasound energy is utilised to stimulate collagen production, which leads to skin tightening and toning. As with many of the above, this is a cosmetic procedure does not involve any lasers, needles or surgery.
