When you start feeling unhappy about your skin, it is a sign that you need professional advice from a skin rejuvenation expert. Fortunately, a lot of non-invasive or minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment options are out there. Depending on your skin problem and age, one treatment might be more effective than other treatments available. Right from wrinkles to acne scars, these treatments can help you get rid of your skin issues and enjoy younger-looking skin without going under the knife.
Today, you will learn about some of the most effective and minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatments.
Botox is the most popular anti-aging treatment these days. It is more affordable and comes with fewer risks. Besides, it doesn’t require recovery time. By getting targeted injections of botulinum toxin, you can smoothen wrinkles that are caused by repetitive movements such as smiling, frowning, or raising eyebrows. This treatment is effective for smoothening wrinkles on your face, eye area, and neck temporarily. It works by reducing the degree of muscle movement in targeted areas.
You can get Botox treatment for:
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Vertical neck bands
- Brow lifting
- Lower facial contouring
- Jawline contouring
Dermal fillers have revolutionized the skin rejuvenation treatments carried out for wrinkles and volume loss. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is an extremely safe and effective way to address facial aging. Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, Belotero, or Restylane, are injected in the targeted areas by a cosmetic surgeon to address a variety of skin problems, such as:
- Volume loss near cheekbones
- Hollow cheeks and eyes
- Wrinkled and saggy jawline
- Nasolabial folds
- Vertical lines
- Volume loss in lips
For optimum results, dermal fillers need to be repeated every 4 to 6 months for lip restoration and every 12 months for nasolabial lines, marionette lines, cheek definition, and every 18-24 months for tear trough.
Chemical peels are very effective in treating a range of skin problems such as wrinkles, superficial scarring, age spots, and pigmentation or discoloration. A great example of a highly effective chemical peel is Perfect 10 Peel. It is a medical-grade chemical peel made of a unique acid blend, retinol complex, and antioxidants. All these substances encourage cellular generation. This skin rejuvenation treatment is performed by a cosmetic surgeon with little to no downtime.
Chemical peel treatments encourage your skin to remodel and regrow by promoting the production of collagen in the upper layers of the skin.
Individuals suffering from acne scarring can benefit most from the microneedling procedure. This treatment works by causing micro-injuries in the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. To ease any discomfort, a local anesthetic cream might be applied. RF microneedling is a new variant of microneedling to stimulate more collagen production because the thermal energy created by RF helps boost the effect of needling. It helps you get rid of acne scarring without having to take time off work.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
This treatment is available in two variants:
Ablative laser skin resurfacing – This treatment utilizes fractionated CO2 and erbium lasers for skin resurfacing. It is a better option than CO2 laser resurfacing and uses CO2 technology but fractionates the light into microscopic beams. With downtime of only 5 to 7 days, this is the most powerful skin rejuvenation treatment and the gold standard for achieving permanent results for acne scarring and anti-aging.
Non-Ablative Laser Skin Resurfacing – This technique utilizes laser beams to resurface the skin. It helps in improving pigment and texture without causing physical injury to your skin surface. It is also of two types, fractionated and non-fractionated.
