A friend is always a special person in your life. To show appreciation of the friendship, do something special for them regularly. Does your friend feel conscious of his or her aging skin? This Friendship Day, treat them to a consultation with an anti-aging specialist. The specialist will guide them on the best anti-aging techniques they can opt to undertake.
Below are the commonly used treatment procedures:
Botulinum Toxin Therapy
This procedure is commonly known as Botox. Botulinum toxin injections help reduce glabellar lines(frown lines) between the crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes and the eyebrows. The treatment works by preventing the tightening of muscles in the areas.
The procedure does not have a known recovery time. However, the effects will be visible by the end of the first week. The effects are short-lived and will only be visible for up to 4 months.
Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing
Your anti-aging specialist uses a special laser to treat narrow skin columns. The laser damages the old deep layers of skin and stimulates the growth of new cells. The layers of skin that were damaged peel off, revealing younger-looking skin. This procedure can treat wrinkles and fine lines.
You might need more than one consultation to get the results you want. You will not take a long period to heal after the procedure. However, you are likely to experience some redness, pain, scabbing, or peeling on your face.
Nonablative Skin Rejuvenation
This procedure uses laser and other forms of energy. Nonablative skin rejuvenation procedure treats wrinkles, age spots, and loss of skin tone. Fortunately, this treatment procedure does not remove any layer of your skin and does not require any recovery time. However, since this procedure is mild, you will require several consultations to achieve optimum results.
Intense Pulse Light
In this procedure, IPL lasers penetrate the skin where the light is absorbed into the blood vessels. The blood vessels are then dissipated and reabsorbed by the body. Once the blood vessels are reabsorbed, pores become less visible.
IPL is effective in erasing brown spots, freckles, age spots, and acne scars. This procure is suitable for sunbathers.
Dermabrasion is a procedure that board-certified anti-aging specialists use to treat age spots, sunburns, and wrinkles. Your dermatologist uses a rotating brush to remove the outer layer from some parts of your face. New and smooth skin grows and replaces the removed skin.
The parts of skin that skin was removed might look red or pink and sometimes experience swelling or scabbing for a few weeks after treatment. You may need to take a break from work to allow your face to heal. You only require a single consultation to get this treatment.
Unlike dermabrasion, this procedure uses a special machine to spray tiny particles on the skin. The procedure is less abrasive and requires less time to heal. However, you require multiple consultations to achieve the desired results.
