Aging is a natural progression that results in fine lines and drying skin, an element that is unavoidable for most adults advancing in age. While aging cannot be naturally reversed, actions like eating a healthy diet, diligently practicing a skin regime every morning and night, and getting an allotted amount of exercise per day can keep your skin healthy.
Still, sometimes all of that is not enough to delay fine lines and wrinkles from forming. To reduce the number of wrinkles on your skin and to renew dried-out and sagging areas, you can get cosmetic procedures, like chemical peels and dermal fillers, that will shed years off your skin.
Find out what the best cosmetic procedures are that will renew your aging skin and keep you looking glowing and youthful.
Chemical peels will effectively exfoliate the skin, and it works when a cosmetic professional places a chemical solution on the top layer of your skin. The solution will induce the top layer of your skin to peel off, where smoother and healthier skin will eventually emerge. Not only will a chemical make your skin appear healthier and younger, but it can also correct years of damage caused by acne and excessive sun exposure. Different levels of chemical peels vary in intensity, with the deepest chemical peel resulting in the longest-lasting and healthiest skin after weeks of recovery.
A facelift is an effective measure against aging, albeit a more invasive one than chemical peels. A facelift will remove several aging layers of skin and tighten any excess skin that is noticeably sagging and droopy, resulting in smoother skin. This procedure will culminate in a more shapely facial appearance and reduce the number of pockets of fat that will emerge due to age. Facelifts can also be performed with other similar cosmetic procedures that will reduce visible signs of age, such as an eye lift and neck lift.
The nose will constantly shift and change during a lifetime, and to garner some symmetry on the face, many women over 50 opt to get a rhinoplasty to correct any changes. A rhinoplasty can make you appear years younger and can increase your confidence, renewing a youthful glow through pretty invasive surgical methods, but with successful results after the healing process is over.
Microneedling is a non-invasive process involving small needles pricking the outer layer of your skin to stimulate dormant collagen and elastin that is most likely to discontinue rapidly producing after a certain age.
Botox has become synonymous with anti-aging that can result in younger, smoother skin. While Botox is merely a temporary fix in halting movement in the face that will cause fine lines, it is effective. Botox is made up of a solution that a cosmetic professional injects into certain areas of the face where wrinkles are more likely to appear, like around the eyes, mouth, and forehead. Botox works to relax muscles, reducing necklines, crow’s feet, and lines around the mouth and forehead. Results from Botox will last between a few weeks to a few months before you’ll need to get professional injections again.
As you age, volume around your face will inevitably be lost, which can cause your skin to become thinner and more susceptible to dryness, sagging, and wrinkles. Of course, volume can be regained when you get dermal fillers, which can be injected into the skin that will contour and restore lost volume, effectively making your skin look younger and healthier. This non-invasive procedure will be performed by a licensed professional, who will inject the dermal filler into your cheeks, around the eyes, and lips. Brighter and younger skin will be attained and will last between six and 12 months.
Laser skin resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing has become a popular cosmetic procedure because it is non-invasive and effective in reducing the intensity of age lines around the face. This procedure consists of a laser beam pulsing on the targeted areas of the face, which will destroy the outer layer of skin and will enable new skin to develop in its place. The heat from the laser will also stimulate collagen and elasticity and will effectively erase crow’s feet, scars, sun damage, and acne spots.
