Anti-Aging Treatments

Reaching a certain age gets signified by some physical signs of wear and tear. These signs are evident from the skin that develops fine lines and wrinkles and becomes saggy. Aside from the aging impact, the skin also has to face direct exposure to all environmental factors that make the skin tissue decay even more imminent.

A healthy lifestyle certainly helps delay the eventual aging appearance but doesn’t stop it from happening entirely. The good news is that clinical options are available to treat fine lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation issues caused by aging and other external factors. So, you can combine those treatments with a healthy lifestyle to win the appearance of your desires.

On top of everything, you do not require surgical treatments to look young again, unlike in the past years. You can benefit from various non-surgical Anti-aging treatment options to reverse the aging clock on your skin. We shall briefly look into these options in the following lines.

Laser Treatments

Laser treatment is a broad term used to denote any clinical method that uses a laser beam to achieve healthcare or cosmetic goal. Even if you narrow it down further to laser treatment for aged skin, you will have to choose from multiple options, depending on the aging signs you want to treat.

For instance, you can treat fine lines and wrinkles along with aging-related pigmentation issues with the help of fractional CO2. This treatment typically uses fractionated carbon dioxide laser.

Similarly, your doctor will have to adjust the laser frequency differently to treat skin sagginess. There are many more laser treatment options to help address other aging signs on the skin.

Like any other noninvasive treatment, a few laser treatment sessions are needed to achieve the desired results. Even though laser treatment is non-surgical, the laser beam can cause pain during the procedure. Therefore, your doctor may apply a topical anesthetic solution to the treatment area to avoid that pain.

Side effects of this treatment are generally mild and short-term. There is usually no downtime required, meaning that you can continue with your routine commitments right after the treatment. On top of that, the results of laser anti-aging treatments last a long time.

Dermabrasion

It is a highly invasive treatment that uses a wire brush to exfoliate the top layer of the skin. This exfoliation jumpstarts the healing process, reducing aging signs and restoring a youthful appearance. This treatment also boosts collagen production, making the skin firm and supple.

The most significant drawback of this treatment is that it can be quite painful due to its invasive nature. Therefore, your doctor may administer local anesthesia before the procedure. Moreover, you may require extensive downtime with this treatment to steer clear of side effects. And most importantly, choosing the right dermatologist is vital for treatment success.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion involves spraying tiny crystals on the treatment area to promote exfoliation. The main aim of this treatment is to remove fine lines and wrinkles and treat pigmentation problems.

This treatment acts like a kick start for the skin healing process, coercing a rejuvenated skin layer to supplant the old, dull layer. Due to boosted collagen growth after the treatment, the new skin surface is firm, elastic, and without aging signs.

You may need more than one microdermabrasion session to achieve the desired results. The good thing is this treatment is more or less pain-free. Side effects are minimal and temporary, and there is no downtime associated with the treatment. Still, the skin doctor may apply topical anesthetics to ensure you feel no discomfort during the procedure.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels help correct various aging signs on the skin. These acidic solutions target fine lines, wrinkles, freckles, blemishes, and age spots, helping improve the skin’s overall firmness.

A dermatologist applies the chemical peeling solution to the facial skin surface at the clinic. This helps start the resurfacing process, leading to a new skin layer superseding the old one. At the same time, the peels help boost collagen to make the skin suppler.

Light and medium peels have milder side effects and no downtime. And you may need repeated sessions to get the desired outcome. 

Deep peels, however, carry a significant downtime and are generally applied only once. Milder chemical peels are readily available over the counter, but they work best from the hands of experts as they ensure maximum safety during the procedure.

Botox

Botulinum Toxin Type A or Botox is a lethal neurotoxin that helps remove aging signs on the skin when used in a specific amount. It is perfectly safe if appropriately administered. However, individuals getting this treatment must ensure that they do not have any medical condition that can interfere with the treatment.

This treatment involves injecting the Botox solution into the facial muscles responsible for fine lines and wrinkles. The solution inhibits the ability of those muscles to move, smoothening the skin surface on top. This treatment can help correct smile lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet.

The results of this treatment are not permanent and last only a few months. So, you may need to get repeated treatments to maintain the results obtained. Unless a medical condition rules it out, you can get Botox injections as many times as you want.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are a highly viable noninvasive method for correcting the loss of volume on the face in different areas. The fillers are mainly based on natural fat and collagen. Once injected, they take a few days to come into action and improve the overall skin condition. Depending on the type of fillers used, you will continue getting treatment results from a few months to up to two years.

Since fillers are not a permanent fix for aged skin, you may need to go for repeated sessions evenly spaced at a few months to a few years for extended results.

Final Thoughts

Modern-day anti-aging treatments help bring a significant change in your appearance without causing severe pain and discomfort. However, the practitioner’s expertise goes a long way towards safety and efficacy. Therefore, choosing a reputable clinic or dermatologist for your anti-aging treatment is vital.
