Although aging is a natural part of life, no one enjoys the process. Aches and pains, feeling exhausted all the time, and dealing with stress are all symptoms of this process we call “aging”. Even on our face, the signs of aging eventually appear, including fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and age spots. There are some things you can do internally to slow down the aging process and maintain your well-being, like getting enough exercise, eating a balanced diet, and drinking plenty of water, but when it comes to the way your skin looks, sometimes specialized treatments may be required. Here are the best cosmetic procedures for aging skin, as well as new anti aging treatments for 2019.
A popular and non-invasive procedure for anti-aging is microdermabrasion. The procedure uses a hard diamond-tipped wand to remove cells from the top layer of skin, making way for new growth. The procedure is not painful. The recovery period is minimal as the redness on the skin will go away quickly. This is a hygienic treatment designed to remove dead cells and impurities, and to promote cell turnover.
Laser Skin Treatment
Laser skin treatment or laser resurfacing is the process of using high intensity light to improve the appearance of wrinkles and scars, as well as to tighten the skin. A few treatments may be required to get optimal results, and the results may last years for non-smokers and those who use sunscreen. The Spectra Peel treatment is equal to having four chemical peels in one session. It works to remove the outer layer of the epidermis and allow youthful skin to appear. Laser skin treatments are great for people who have inflamed acne, Melasma, and enlarged pores, and the procedure can improve skin tone, texture, and elasticity.
For people who have dull skin texture, mild acne scars, and skin discoloration, chemical peels can be used as an effective treatment. The chemical peel will remove the outer layer of skin and encourage new, smooth, even skin to grow. Chemical peels come in varying intensities, so it may cause redness and peeling that can last for several weeks. The results of superficial peels last one month, while deeper peels have results that will last longer.
Infini Non-Surgical Facelift
The Infini non-surgical facelift is one of the best anti-aging treatments for the face. Using high-intensity focused radio frequency technology combined with microneeding, the procedure tightens the skin and improves elasticity in areas such as the neck, face, chest, arms, legs, stomach, and more. The Infini skin rejuvenation procedure is nearly risk-free and is a great alternative to getting a facelift—it produces similar results, but with less risks of complications. Infini can also treat wrinkles and fine lines, remove acne scars, and restore your youthful glow.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment
The PRP treatment can treat aging skin all over the body, including the face, neck, and scalp. During the procedure, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and then spun in a centrifuge to separate into different layers. The platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the patient to help increase the natural production of new collagen, revitalize the skin, and restore your youthful appearance. The PRP treatment is safe and has no side effect because the procedure uses your own body’s biological material. The benefits of PRP therapy is long lasting. The first three treatments are one month apart, and maintenance is every six month or more.
Botox or Fillers
Another effective treatment for aging skin is Botox. Botox treatments are injectable solutions that relaxes minor facial muscles to smooth out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The effects of the injections can last three to six months, depending on whether you return for repeat treatments.
Fillers are a different type of injections where hyaluronic acid and other ingredients are injected to fill in the lines and wrinkles to volumize areas of aging skin. When hyaluronic acid (a naturally occurring sugar existing in your body that slows in production as you age) is injected into the skin, it plumps up the area. Results for filler injections usually last between six months to a year.
The signs of aging aren’t limited to the face and neck. As the body changes, areas like the abdomen, love handles, and back may hold onto excess fat and become challenging to tone up. For healthy active people who need a little extra help removing excess fat in these areas, the SculpSure treatment is a great option. SculpSure uses laser pads to heat up and disrupt the fat cells underneath. At all times during the procedure a layer of cooling is used to keep the skin protected and comfortable throughout the process. Each treatment area takes about 25 minutes, and as the damaged fat cells are slowly eliminated through the lymphatic system, the results will appear gradually. The results are permanent, meaning that the fat cells will not grow back.
