February 27, 2023 (IANSlife) Time takes a toll not only on your health but your skin, too. As you age, your skin loses elastin and collagen, which is vital for skin structure, volume, and texture. The ability for your skin to heal also decreases significantly over time. As we age, it becomes increasingly important to take care of your skin and choose the right anti-aging options. In recent years, cosmetic anti-aging procedures have gained mainstream acceptance.New treatments and less-invasive procedures for smoothing wrinkles, tightening skin, and improving one’s complexion are giving many people younger-looking skin.
Here are some anti-aging procedures to help you have that youthful glow.
Laser lipolysis primarilyhelps with sculpting and tightening ofthe skin by removing fat deposits, including V-line enhancement,eye bag removal, double chin removal, facial slimming, smoothening of expression lines and wrinkles, lightening of nasolabial folds, and mini brow lift. It is a non-surgical approach that does not require using a scalpel or placing stitches.
Platelet rich plasma therapy
PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy is another exciting, non-surgical concept of regenerative medicine proven to give amazing anti-aging results. It helps reduce wrinkles, plump up sagging skin, get rid of deep creases, improve one’s complexion, and diminish acne scars. And the best part: there’s little to no downtime.
An injectable treatment with the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid, bio remodeling enhances the skin’s natural healing properties to transform and completely remodel cosmetic concerns. A break-through anti-aging treatment, itimproves skin texture, erases fine lines, and tightens facial skin. Additionally, it is safe for use on the neck, décolletage, and hands. The innovative anti-wrinkle treatment by Profhiloimproves the skin’s composition by stimulating four different types of collagens and elastin. Unlike dermal fillers, Profhilo is able to spread underneath the skin surface.
HIFU (high-intensity focused ultrasound) protects the skin surface, precisely penetrates and treats beyond the dermis and foundation layers, where structural weakening starts. It is mostly used to treat sagging skin on the face and acts as a non-surgical facelift procedure. This new technology reaches deeper beneath the skin, stimulating your body’s collagen stores to regenerate in a natural way. It employs concentrated ultrasound energy on the targeted area mainly face and neck with a handpiece. The overall outcome of the therapy is to promote the tightening and lifting of the saggy skin.
Thermageis a great non-invasive therapy that can help smooth, tighten, and contour skin for an overall younger-looking appearance. This anti-aging treatment works by heating the deep dermal layers of the skin with the help of radiofrequency. It does not have any impact on the uppermost layers of the skin thus, there is no damage. It stimulates natural collagen production, thereby helping to prevent and correct sagging skin on the face and neck.
Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns by stimulating collagen production. This treatment creates micro-punctures in the skin using miniature, sterilised needles to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoothening, firming, and toning the skin. It can also help reduce the appearance of acne, scars, dark spots, wrinkles, and large pores. Involves minimal discomfort and very little downtime.
