Facial Skin Care Guide: Choosing the Right Facial Rejuvenation Treatment for Your Skin
Facial scars, blemishes, acne, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots – Ageing takes its toll on every face. And, then there are other factors including sun exposure, smoking and drinking that contribute to the appearance of wrinkled and spotted skin and premature ageing of your face. However, the effects of ageing and other lifestyle and environmental factors no longer have to be accepted as inevitable aspects of life.
While some people have accepted ageing (and its signs) as it comes, many others have come up to make the best use of the advancing facial skin care technology and maintain their youthful appearance. Facial rejuvenation is one effective way to recapture your youth and give your damaged facial skin a refreshed appearance.
Gaining much popularity nowadays, non-surgical procedures like soft tissue fillers, neurotoxins (botulinum toxins) and fat injections have emerged as common ways to enhance facial appearance and achieve a more youthful appearance. However, many patients still rely on surgical procedures like brow lift, eyelid surgery and a minimally invasive facelift that help improve specific areas of the face and provide significant results.
Following is a sample of some of the non surgical and surgical facial rejuvenation procedures that help achieve a healthy yet natural look by improving skin laxity and texture.
A chemical peel is a facial rejuvenation technique that uses a chemical solution to improve the texture of the skin. The chemical solution is applied to the facial skin to remove the damaged outer layer of the skin and reduce the effects of sun damage, wrinkles and uneven pigmentation.
A quick cosmetic procedure, microdermabrasion involves the polishing of the skin by spraying microcrystals to remove dry, dead skin cells on the outermost layer of the skin. The crystals exfoliate your skin’s upper surface, revealing younger and healthier skin.
Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing
Fractional Laser Resurfacing is performed to treat the damaged and unevenly pigmented outer layers of the skin. The technique uses a laser to reduce or remove facial flaws like wrinkles and fine lines. The new skin cells that form in the underlying layers of the skin as a result of the treatment give your skin a tighter and younger looking appearance. This procedure is particularly effective around the lower eyelids.
Minimally Invasive Facelift
A minimally invasive facelift is a great way to restore wrinkled and sagging skin on the face and around the neck. The procedure involves removing excess skin and fat that appears on the skin due to weight loss or ageing. The remaining skin and deep tissue is tightened in order to obtain a more refreshed and youthful result. Many other cosmetic treatments can be performed to enhance one’s facial appearance while eliminating ageing imperfections and natural flaws.
