When it comes to defying the signs of aging, there's a plethora of products to choose from in the market. Some of them promise to provide desirable results, but not all are true to their claims. There are skincare products that have dangerous side effects and can do more harm than good to your skin. That's why you need extra care when choosing a skincare product.
Whether it's too much sun exposure, acne, or aging that has driven you to develop wrinkles, scars and other types of blemishes, skin resurfacing can make you look younger and blemish-free. The procedure can either be done alone or with the help of other cosmetic surgeries.
Laser resurfacing is one of the most popular treatments being considered today. The first step before undergoing this treatment is to consult a plastic surgeon or dermatologist so you'll know whether or not you're a good candidate for the treatment. If you developed fever blisters or cold
sores, don't forget to consult your doctor because laser skin resurfacing can trigger breakouts, especially in people who are at high risk.
If you have finally decided to go ahead with laser skin resurfacing, your doctor will advise you to not take supplements or medications such as vitamin E, ibuprofen or aspirin because they can affect clotting for 10 before the treatment. If you're smoking, you'll need to stop for about two weeks before and after the treatment because smoking can prolong healing.
Other Types of Aesthetic Treatment
1. Dermal Fillers
This popular treatment has been revolutionised because it's widely used for treating volume loss and wrinkles. It uses Hyaluronic Acid
(HA), which is a safe and effective treatment for aging. The purpose of this treatment is to fill nasolabial folds, resculpt lips, improve your jawline, restore hallow eyes and cheeks and add height to your cheekbones.
Botox is also a popular form of anti-aging treatm
ent. It's affordable and poses fewer risks as compared to other forms of treatment. It doesn't also require recovery time. The process involves injecting targeted injections of bo
tulinum toxin which is known to be effective for getting rid of wrinkles on your face, eye area and neck. Botox also reduces the effect of muscle movement by softening wrinkles and prevent deep lines from forming in the future.
3. Chemical Peels
This treatment is intended for treating wrinkles, age spots, discoloration and superficial scarring. The treatment process involves applying an acid solution for dissolving skin cells, removing the top layers of your epidermis. The strength and type of acid solution will determine the effects achieved.
