Summer is here and that means many of us spend more time outside than in, due to our constant activities or vacations. During these months, many women choose to wear less makeup as they lounge by the pool or relax at the beach. If you are looking for ways to improve the appearance of your skin so you can feel more confident going au naturel too, we’ve highlighted some of the best treatments at Marvel Cosmetic Surgery.
Hyaluronic acid is an amazing product that makes your skin look younger, fresher, and more subtle. Overall, it’s a skincare superstar and is found naturally in your body. Although the name says acid, it’s not. It’s actually a sugar molecule found in the body that holds almost a thousand times its weight in water. The result is plumper, fresher looking skin. As a facial treatment, it has the ability to smooth out skin and add volume. If you’re looking to obtain natural, dewy skin Hyaluronic Enhancer is a fantastic option.
Combating fine lines and wrinkles is possible with Botox. Botox is derived from neurotoxins that relax facial muscles. The process encourages patients to limit movements that enhance age lines like furrowing or frowning. What it does not do is add volume to the skin. Instead, it focuses on eliminating wrinkles cosmetically around the eyebrows, mouth, and forehead. The results provide patients with a more youthful complexion.
An interest in a spa-like experience is completed with the O2 Lift Facial. This facial is a multi-step treatment that infuses oxygen, stem cells, peptides, and a high concentration of botanicals that are designed to exfoliate, illuminate, and oxygenate. The process is safe and great for all skin types. The products used are free from acid and sulfates and work to balance out the skin’s pH leaving you with nothing to the softest and most radiant skin.
Fillers are similar to Botox as they are injected into different areas of the face. But while Botox eliminates lines by relaxing the muscles, fillers work to add volume to the skin. The perfect candidate for fillers will have a noticeable loss of volume around the mouth, eyes, jaw, and cheeks. There are a variety of fillers available that provide patients with the youthful, glowing skin they desire. The best part is the utilization of Hyaluronic Acid. Because it’s naturally found in the body, these fillers will work well with almost everyone.
Intense Pulse Light Facial Rejuvenation (IPL)
IPL Facials are designed to improve the appearance of photo-aged skin on both the face and body. It treats broken capillaries and age spots for a smoother looking skin. Additionally, it can reduce the appearance of redness, correct skin pigmentation and irregularities. The treatment uses emissions from high-intensity lasers to treat deep within the dermis. These lasers are filled with plasma and destroy skin cells that may be damaged. It will also induce a natural healing process.
Microdermabrasion is a popular treatment that eliminates dead skin cells but stimulates cell growth. Many patients use it to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, large pores, and other imperfections. It’s a non-invasive procedure which means there are no incisions or scarring. Microdermabrasion is perfect for anyone who is looking to get rid of age spots, sun damage, acne, scares, or hyper-pigmentation. By exfoliating the skin and stimulating collagen production, your skin looks healthier and more rejuvenated.
Protecting Your Skin
The best way to protect your skin is to use sunscreen every day to reduce the chances of getting sun damage or wrinkles. You should apply it under your makeup and wear it regardless of how much sun you plan on getting that day. Even when you drive or sit next to your office window, you are subjecting your face’s delicate cells to UVA and UVB lights that in high doses accelerate aging and sometimes cause cancer.
Additionally, never underestimate the power of water. Your 8 glasses a day are a natural way to remove toxins from your body that can cause your skin to look dull. Try to swap your cokes and coffee with a glass of water as often as you can to keep skin looking youthful.
