3 Types of Skin Rejuvenation Treatment and Their Benefits
December 2nd, 2021 by Candis Hall
As we get older, our skin starts to show signs of aging that include wrinkles, skin pigmentation, dullness, or acne marks due to too much exposure to the sun, hereditary, or health problems. These irregularities often make us feel insecure with our skin. Frequently, both men and women hope to prevent this or restore their youthful glow with creams, serum, supplements, and other skincare products to combat the signs of aging. However, these skincare products have limitations or can cause allergies depending on skin type. And more often than not, they cannot reverse collagen loss, decrease in elasticity, or sun damage.
Luckily, there are several treatment options to aid in restoring your skin from damage and appear more youthful and healthier. Skin rejuvenation treatments aim to improve mild to moderate skin problems and help the skin to regain a youthful appearance.
Types of Skin Rejuvenation Treatments
- Chemical Peels
This treatment is the most common skin rejuvenation technique. A chemical peeling is a cosmetic procedure that uses a solution to be applied on the skin and helps break the old skin cells and peel away the thin outer layers of skin.
Possible side effects of chemical peels are swelling, redness, stinging, or itching for three to five days, depending on how strong the solution is. However, Once the treatment is done, the skin will have smoother, tighter skin, toned, and a brighter complexion. They also help to minimize or eliminate age spots, discoloration, and blotchiness.
- Laser skin resurfacing treatment
Laser treatment uses a laser to either heat the skin or remove the exterior layer of skin with precision. This process boosts new collagen production of the new skin during the healing process resulting in a much smoother new skin growth.
Two types of laser are being used during the resurfacing treatment: Ablative lasers and Non-Ablative lasers. The most powerful one is the Ablative lasers. It’s like a wavelength that brings extreme light to the skin, which removes the top and second layer of sun-damaged or aging skin. In comparison, Non-ablative lasers are the gentler version of laser that directs its energy to the deeper tissue without harming or injuring the skin’s surface.
After the skin heals from a Laser skin rejuvenating treatment, the skin now stimulates collagen production, which improves wrinkles, acne scars, and fine lines. Your body responds by creating younger-looking skin resulting in much tighter and smoother skin.
- Facial filler
Facial fillers, also known as Derma fillers, are rejuvenation treatment that uses injectable gels. There is a permanent facial filler, and the other one is made from hyaluronic acid, which is temporary that can last for about a year. This is best for people who have not fully decided yet if they want a permanent change in their looks or for those who would like to do a trial.
Facial fillers restore fullness and volume to the skin, smoothen wrinkles and facial lines and heighten scars. They can also help make flat into a pointed nose or pouty lips without getting surgery. Another benefit of Derma fillers is they can also help create our body’s natural moisturizer.
Because skin aging is unavoidable, skin rejuvenation treatments can help anyone look younger or feel better in their skin. These procedures will certainly help us, like the old saying goes, “Look good, feel good.” Being comfortable and confident in our appearance will undoubtedly put us in a positive mood.
