Skin rejuvenation, here are the top 5 treatments to look out for
23 Jul 2017
Skin rejuvenation may sound rather technical, but in truth is actually very simple. By incorporating a regular skin care regime at home, along with a variety of clinic based treatments, your skin will soon be a glowing picture of health. But what do you use to achieve these results, it can all be so confusing?
From slathering on creams and serums to the latest and most innovative treatments, it soon becomes clear that a dual approach to skin rejuvenation is required at all times.
Skin rejuvenation at the clinic
1. Microneedling With PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
A bunch of tiny needles being moved across your face in an oscillating action may sound scary, but in effect, microneedling has become one of the most popular trends in the beauty industry. It is safe, it improves skin texture and tone and is usually more affordable and less invasive than lasers. It also offers a minimal downtime and a quicker recovery, so it’s a win all round!
2. Neuromodulators and injectables
Wrinkles can age your appearance and make your skin look dull, weathered and quite hard to the eye. But one of the easiest, and quickest, ways to get rid of them is with injections of neuromodulators. Injectables are a great treatment for both wrinkle reduction, skin rejuvenation and age prevention.
DID YOU KNOW: Botox is a purified protein that is injected into facial muscles, it results in the relaxation of the muscle treated and therefore relaxes the pull on the skin, which diminishes the wrinkle. By keeping the muscles constantly relaxed it can prevent the formation of further wrinkles.
3. Fractional lasers
Fractional lasers are ideal for skin requiring a deeper and more intense skin rejuvenation. When used on a low setting, they help to tighten pores, diminish age spots. They make the skin brighter and more radiant. When used a higher setting they work at intensely restoring the signs of ageing such as pigmentation, spots, scars, and wrinkles. There is always a period of downtime which needs to be taken into consideration.
Home care for rejuvenation
1. Retinol/ Retinoids
Still considered the gold standard of topical ingredients for fighting effects of ageing. A good retinoid is essential in the quest for youthful skin. Retinols increase skin cell turnover, improve hydration, and yield a fresh and more youthful skin.
One of the best ways to keep the damage caused by environmental factors at bay is by wearing an antioxidant every single day. While there are a plethora of different ones to choose from it’s important to find one that’s compatible with your skin. Ensure that your skin products are active enough to get results. Skin rejuvenation is best achieved with professional cosmeceutical/medical grade skin care.
