Best Procedures to Reduce the Signs of Aging

Best Procedures to Reduce the Signs of Aging

 

Reduce Signs of Aging

The easiest way is to start drinking plenty of water and make sure to apply sun screen and moisturizer daily. However, even with meticulous care, frown lines and wrinkles will happen. Because September is National Healthy Aging Month, we want to share with you the best procedures to reduce the signs of aging.

Botox

Botox is widely known for its use to reduce the signs of aging. With a few quick injections, deep lines between brows, crow’s feet, and laugh lines are all reduced in appearance.

Botox works by using Botulinum toxins, which are injected directly into the facial muscle to restrict muscle movement. Deeply etched lines in the face, often created by intense concentration or constant furrowing, will smooth out with regular use. Regular Botox treatments mean preventing new creases from forming while smoothing out the appearance of what you already have.

Injectables

Fillers differ from Botox because they are injected into the contours of your face, not to paralyze, but to add volume or plump specific areas.

Made with hyaluronic acid fillers smooth out wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a substance your body naturally produces to keep skin plump and hydrated. Since it already occurs in the body, these fillers are less likely to cause an allergic reaction. The filler itself has a gel-like consistency that is injected into the skin to smooth fine lines. These particular fillers can last from 6 to 12 months before being absorbed. Brands such as Juvederm, Juvederm Voluma, and Restylane are all options for those who are interested in the Hyaluronic Acid option.

Fat Transfers

Noninvasive fat transfers – or micro-lipo injection – add volume to the skin in the face and hands, giving you a more rested, youthful appearance. By using your body’s unwanted fat, the procedure reduces crow’s feet, laugh lines and ridges that appear as a normal part of aging. Along with improving the skin’s appearance and reversing the signs of aging, fat transfers can also repair and reconstruct skin damaged by trauma or surgery.

Vitamin C Peel

Vitamin C is one of the best-known defenses against free radicals. This peel is an option for anyone who suffers from acne because it deeply cleanses the pores and provides an anti-bacterial action to prevent acne from reappearing. The acid found in Vitamin C also works as a bleaching agent, which can help restore imbalanced skin tone and help fade blemishes.

Vitalize Peel

The Vitalize Peel uses a combination of AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids and Beta Hydroxy Acids), along with Retinol, to give a more corrective exfoliation for the skin. Our most popular facial treatment and suitable for melasma, sun damage, acne, post hyper-inflammatory acne, fine lines and all-over tone and texture of skin. For best results, you should consider a series of three visits.

CO2 Laser

CO2 laser is the latest technology for skin resurfacing. It’s designed to help remove wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, and cheeks. The laser works by gently vaporizing the outer layer of sun-damaged or acne scarring to reveal smooth, fresh new skin underneath. Similarly, the laser works to phase out fine lines and wrinkles. The procedure gives your physician control over the application. Recovery time lasts about two weeks and works best for lighter skin tones.

Zesty Orange Peel

This enzyme peel is full of Vitamin C and it also contains Salicylic Acid and Lactic Acid. Good for blemish-prone, sensitive skin. Because it has similar benefits to the Vitamin C Peel, it reduces the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne. You can also use it as a preventative for future breakouts.

Glycolic Peels

Our glycolic peels vary in strength. They help treat hyperpigmentation, fine lines, sun damage, clogged pores and some forms of acne. This peel is an option for someone who lacks the ‘down time’ required for most peeling. There are noticeable improvements in the skin’s tone and texture from even a single treatment.

Salicylic Peel

The Salicylic Peel helps decrease oil production in the skin. This is the very good treatment for acne and blackheads because it works deep in the pores. It’s gentle enough for use with other peels to help problem areas like T-zones and combination skin types.

The Vitamin C Peel And Its Benefits

Vitamin C Peel

There are a plethora of serums, ointments, procedures, and lotions that declare it can help reduce the signs of aging. But did you know Vitamin C works wonders on treating uneven skin tone, acne, scarring, fine lines and wrinkles? The Vitamin C Peel and its benefits make it a skin care treatment well worth your while.

Vitamin C is one of the best-known defenses against free radicals (such as pollution, sun rays, and cigarette smoke) that can cause your skin to lose elasticity and sag. As a result, your skin loses its ability to shed dead skin cells, causing a dull and uneven appearance. Vitamin C works as an antioxidant to neutralize these free radicals, by preventing them from oxidizing on your skin.

When there is a build-up of dead skin cells on the face, the skin in the area begins to appear aged and worn. With the help of a Vitamin C peel, you can slough off the dead skills cells, so your body can replace them with new ones giving you a fresh and vibrant glow.

This peel can also help anyone suffering from acne, as it deeply cleanses pores and provides an anti-bacterial action to prevent them from reappearing. The acid found in Vitamin C also works as a bleaching agent that can help restore imbalanced skin tone and help fade blemishes.

This process is perfectly safe for all skin types and suitable for any age, with no recovery time like traditional peels. Virtually pain-free, the peel has a gentle tingling feeling from the ingredients penetrating the lower layers of the skin. Most results can be seen after one session, but it’s advisable as with a beauty routine to maintain results with multiple treatments.
