Aging comes for us all. If you notice more wrinkles than yesterday, you may consider surgery to reverse the signs of aging on your skin. But going under the knife comes with considerable risk and a price to boot. Luckily, you can look younger without surgery at the aesthetic medical spa Albuquerque. The experts employ cosmetic procedures that are minimally invasive to restore the youthful glow. Let’s look at the non-surgical remedies for aging skin.
Chemical peels are specially formulated acidic solutions that peel off the outer layers of your skin, revealing finer skin. The acidic solution removes sun spots, wrinkles, and surface-level skin blemishes. A cosmetologist or dermatologist usually tailors the peel to suit your skin tone and achieve your desired results.
Chemical peels have minimal downtime, but recovery can take a few days. During recovery, do not scrub the skin or use abrasives on it. Also, stay out of the sun to avoid skin reddening and itching.
Microneedling leverages your body’s natural healing ability to promote new skin growth. When performed at Freya’s, the dermatologist will pass over a micro-needling device on your skin, making tiny nicks. The minor wounds spur collagen and elastin production, making your skin appear firmer and radiant. The punctures also provide channels for the doctor to apply serum containing retinol and Vitamin C, promoting healthy skin growth. Micro-needling is an in-office procedure and does not require general anesthesia.
Lasers find their utility in other verticals other than Star Wars. In the cosmetic scene, laser energy removes wrinkles, sun spots, varicose veins, and other skin flaws. Laser resurfacing involves the doctor passing a laser emitting device over your skin, which ablates the top layers of the skin, increases cell turnover, and promotes collagen growth. After multiple sessions, you will notice improved skin texture and flawless skin.
You can add volume to sunken jawbones, get a toned nose, and more with dermal fillers. Most fillers contain hyaluronic acid that interacts with your skin’s collagen to promote firmer skin growth. The fillers also add volume to the areas they are injected. Dermal fillers are a potent alternative to Botox, although Botox benefits transcend aesthetic appearance. When a doctor injects the fillers, they smoothen out wrinkle lines while adding volume.
Botox injections are made from botulinum toxins. Botox blocks the receptors in your muscles that cause the skin to contract and cause wrinkles. The injectable prevents new wrinkles from forming and also evens out existing wrinkles.
Botox injections are highly customizable; individuals as young as 20 can get them to prevent deep-seated wrinkles.
Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment
PRP is an increasingly popular skin rejuvenation treatment. The beauty of PRP treatment is that it uses your blood to treat wrinkles, varicose veins, and other skin defects. How does that sound?
Platelet-rich plasma is blood drawn from your body and the part containing plasma reinjected into your skin. The treatment stimulates new cell growth that results in younger-looking skin.
Surgery is still a viable option when eliminating wrinkles and fine lines on your skin. However, if you do not fancy going under then there are noninvasive options that achieve similar results. When you look good, you feel good. Restoring the youthful glow of your skin is a step in that direction.
