For many people, the effects of aging can make us look older than we are. Our faces bear the brunt of these effects, with our skin losing its elasticity and wrinkles and spots popping up. If you’re looking to rejuvenate your face without cosmetic surgery there are four different methods you can try. Each is safe, effective and will restore your skin, giving it a youthful glow.
- Laser skin resurfacing
Don’t be scared of the word “laser”. These are highly concentrated beams of light energy that are used to improve our skin’s texture and tone. There are two types of lasers, ablative and nonablative. Ablative lasers get rid of the skin’s outer layers to encourage new skin to grow in its place. Although the laser penetrates deep under the skin’s surface, this ablative procedure is still considered non-invasive because no surgical incisions are involved. As for non-ablative laser procedures, these lasers do not break the skin’s surface but instead heat it up enough to promote the growth of new collagen, creating firmer, younger looking skin. Laser skin resurfacing minimizes the look of wrinkles and fine lines; treats redness, discolouration and brown spots; tightens skin; contributes to collagen production; and can get rid of unsightly facial hair.
- Chemical peels
This non-invasive skin procedure involves using a safe chemical solution that causes the outer layers of skin to peel away. Once the old skin peels away, new skin will reveal itself and you’ll have a younger looking, more even complexion. Chemical peels are able to minimize acne scars, smooth wrinkles and fine lines, brighten your complexion, reduce the appearance of age spots and sun damage, and tighten the skin.
This procedure is more like a deep exfoliation of the skin. The area being treated is exfoliated using a fine-tipped instrument or with a light application of abrasive particles. Once the skin is exfoliated it is vacuumed away leaving you with a brightened and improved skin tone. Microdermabrasion also helps to minimize wrinkles and fine lines, and reduces the appearance of age spots and acne scars.
This is a more powerful form of microdermabrasion. Instead of using a fine-tipped instrument or light application of abrasive particles, a rapidly rotating instrument is used to remove the skin layer by layer. Dermabrasion reaches more deeply under the skin’s surface to encourage new cell growth. It can remove scars and blemishes, minimize the appearance of wrinkles, and create a smooth and more balanced complexion.
