Look Younger with These 3 Treatments

Your skin is everything – from safe housing to your face, to making you look bright, and having a more youthful appearance. The skin on your face can change a lot about you when it’s not taken care of, and if you want to turn around your look virtually instantly, check out these three powerful treatments that will give you a youthful boost.

1- Fillers for Wrinkles

We all know that wrinkles are one of the huge reasons why people don’t look as youthful as they once were. That’s why many more people are introducing a wrinkle filler into their appearance maintenance. Dermal fillers go beneath the skin and flatten it out by using a filling method. They are typically naturally derived and restore a bit of elasticity and volume for a period of time.

When aging, we tend to lose this elasticity and volume, leading us to look a bit flatter and causing wrinkles and sagging skin. You can also use fillers for the following:

  • Giving a boost of volume to thin lips
  • Eliminating crow’s feet, upper lip lines, laugh lines, and more
  • Masking the hollows underneath the eyes
  • Adding volume to the face and other areas

How dermal filler works:

A dermal filler pumps up existing tissue under the skin to push out wrinkles

How long it takes:

The process is quick, lasting no more than 30-60 minutes

How long does it last?

They can last anywhere from 6 to 12 months

Benefits of using a wrinkle filler:

  • Almost instant in appearance
  • No recovery time necessary
  • Can be personalized
  • Side effects are minimal

2- Using Botox for Wrinkles

One of the most popular treatments, Botox is fantastic for those that want to reduce the wrinkles and activity the wrinkles perform in, rather than filling and plumping them out temporarily. Botox can treat crow’s feet, lip lines, laugh lines, frowning lines, as well as lines in the forehead.

How Botox works:

Composed of a neurotoxin that’s purified, the injection of Botox sends a type of signal to nerves in the face, making the skin tighter.

How long does Botox take?

Botox is actually quicker than dermal fillers, and only takes 15 minutes or so.

How long do results last?

Treatment with Botox doesn’t stay as long as dermal filler, and only lasts 3-4 months at a time.

Benefits of Botox include:

  • Results are immediate
  • Absolutely no recovery time
  • Non-invasive, quick procedure
  • Barely any side effects

3- Chemical Peels

Botox and dermal fillers are great and effective, but prevention of these deep lines can be done with chemical peels. They can improve the skin by removing the outer layer of skin to reveal smoother, healthy skin underneath. Chemical peels can treat the following:

  • Skin with sun damage
  • Acne scarring
  • Blemishes on the skin
  • Pigmentation within the skin

How it works:

Using a chemical composition, a wound that’s considered “controlled” is started, allowing healing and removal of blemished skin.

How long does it take?

It can take up to 45 minutes, as it has to be done safely and take it’s time – after all, it’s a controlled wound.

How long does it last?

While not temporary, you may have to go in for up to 6 treatments to get the full affect, but one should suffice for many.

Benefits of chemical peels include:

  • Minimal invasion
  • Barely any recovery time for light to moderate peels
  • Results are immediate
  • Improved texture and tone
  • Reduces skin damage and pigmentation
