Do you know anyone who looks forward to looking older? No, neither do we. Even though getting older isn’t necessarily a bad thing, people still put in a lot of effort into maintaining their youthful looks for as long as possible. This means that there are billions of dollars spent every year on creams, serums, oils, masks, skin treatments, and surgery in attempts to keep some of that youthful skin glow and firmness. If you’re looking into some of these yourself, we’ve prepared a list of best anti-aging skin treatments that don’t require surgery.
If you’re worried about your acne scars or perhaps you have age spots that you don’t like, you might wish to consider microdermabrasion treatment. It’s one of the most popular rejuvenating skin treatments because it’s effective and doesn’t require surgery.
It also provides exfoliation and allows the application of a topical that’s specific for your skin condition. The top layer of your skin is evenly abraded so that the chemicals can reach deeper layers of your skin more easily. People sometimes choose to undergo microdermabrasion treatments as a finishing touch after they’ve had facial surgery.
Even though traditional mesotherapy is pretty popular and effective, people sometimes refrained from using it because it involved needles. Fortunately, today you can get electro-mesotherapy treatment in any well-equipped and modern aesthetic clinic. It’s a safe alternative to traditional mesotherapy that doesn’t involve needles at all. While the benefits are still there, none of the risks are; your skin will be revitalized with enriching solutions, and as a result, you will have supple and radiant skin, and the treatment itself will leave you feeling refreshed.
If you have sensitive skin that’s often exposed to sun, you might want to consider a bit more effective rejuvenating treatments. Thermage is a procedure that tightens your skin using radiofrequency technology, and it’s not invasive at all. Your body’s natural ability to produce collagen will be stimulated, and over time, it will make your skin appear younger. It will restore some of its firmness and glow and the best thing is that it doesn’t affect just the surface of your sin, but penetrates deeper levels too. The treatment itself lasts only about an hour and you will only feel the warmth. There aren’t any side effects and you can have this procedure done during your lunch break because there’s no recovery time afterward.
Vampire facial – PRP
You have probably heard about celebrities like Kim K doing something called “Vampire facials”, and you’ve heard they swear by it too. Platelet-rich Plasma is a treatment that platelets, cells created in your own body, in order to promote the production of collagen in your skin.
A small amount of your blood is needed for the procedure, and after it’s spun in a centrifuge, it’s separated into different components. Plasma is divided from your red and white blood cells, and it contains more platelets than usual. This platelet-rich plasma is then injected into specific areas of your skin and helps the production of collagen in a natural way. Your skin will feel smoother, and it will regenerate due to improved collagen production, and the best thing is that the procedure only takes about 30 minutes.
Exfoliating your skin with special chemicals is called chemexfoliation or chemical peel treatment. Some people also refer to this procedure as derma-peeling but the bottom line is that it’s a very popular procedure that’s very effective in improving the appearance of aging skin. For those who are unsure how their skin will react to the chemicals or those who have delicate and sensitive skin, it’s best to try light or medium chemical peels, while those who would like a bit more drastic results should try deep chemical peels instead. The best thing about the procedure is that it doesn’t require surgery, yet the top layer of the patient’s skin is peeled away. This means that any sun damage and uneven pigmentation won’t be as noticeable, and the best of all, the appearance of fine wrinkles is also reduced.
We’ve covered some of the most common and effective non-surgical anti-aging procedures, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t look into surgery as well. Non-surgical treatments and procedures will only get you so far, and there is nothing wrong in choosing surgery if you want more permanent results. Still, before you make an appointment with your surgeon, try some of these treatments and see for yourself how effective they are.
