Who doesn’t want flawless skin? We would all like to see nothing but glowing tan and feel soft skin underneath our fingertips, but sadly that can’t always be the case. Time flies, and before you know it, there are fine wrinkles around your eyes and mouth. If you had problematic skin in the past, there will probably be some acne scars too, which might make you self-conscious. Luckily, there are great ways to get rid of your skin problems with effective skin treatments.
Botox is a special neurotoxic protein which is becoming increasingly popular in wrinkle treatment. Years ago, if you had wrinkles, your only option was to do a facelift, but today things are much simpler. Botox is injected into the skin with a very thin needle, blocking the nerves and paralyzing the muscles in the face. It takes a very small amount to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines, and it’s popular because it doesn’t affect the surrounding skin, which makes it perfect for those who only wish minor intervention. The best thing is that the procedure only lasts for fifteen minutes and its results last for several months.
A bit more invasive skin treatment which treats not only wrinkles but also old scars is dermabrasion. It is a surgical procedure which has to be done in a clinic or in a doctor’s office, and you need a local anesthetic. It is a bit painful so it’s best if you numb your skin beforehand. A doctor will remove all the imperfections and scars from your skin by peeling dead cells with a wire brush. If you only have minor scars and imperfections, you will not need the treatment to be too deep, but if your problems are more severe, the procedure will be deeper and more serious, and you will need more time to recover from swelling and redness. There is also microdermabrasion, exfoliating skin with crystals for minor skin problems.
For those who don’t want their muscles paralyzed and the top layer of their skin scraped, there are always dermal fillers. Doctors inject dermal fillers into your skin (cheeks, lips, and area around your mouth). The results are immediately visible. The treated area appears to be plumper and softer than before, which makes it a perfect solution for those who need more volume but don’t want implants. You can get an injection of hyaluronic acid or your own fat can be injected into your skin. To have your own fat as a filler means that you will have to undergo a liposuction first, but an upside is that your fat is completely natural and without side effects.
Laser Skin Treatments
Lasers are amazing; today they are used for a variety of treatments: surgeries, skin resurfacing, hair and tattoo removal, and teeth whitening too. Strong lasers are used for eye surgeries, while hair removal is done with mild ones. An effective way to remove a tattoo that has long lost its meaning to you is to go for a laser tattoo removal, but keep in mind that at least four treatments are needed to break down the ink. So, it will take some time before you get the desired results.
Cosmetic skin treatments are here to help you get the skin you want: wrinkle-free, soft, and smooth. Whether you need a bit more collagen, wrinkle fillers, or skin smoothing, you shouldn’t hesitate to undergo a treatment. If you are not sure about surgery just yet, a less invasive treatment may be perfect for you.
