Skin Rejuvenation, Where Do I Start?

Posted on May 19, 2022

Skin care therapies for specific skin issues are getting more advanced.

Non-invasive treatments are now available to treat a wide range of skin concerns, from sun damage and wrinkles to hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and more.

There is certainly no shortage of skin rejuvenation treatments if you want to revitalise your skin and increase your confidence.

But how do you usually go about a skin rejuvenating treatment? What is the best skin rejuvenation treatment out there?

In this article, I will talk about skin rejuvenation, laser resurfacing, and the best skin rejuvenation treatment for the face.

What Is Skin Rejuvenation?

Skin abnormalities on the face and elsewhere on the body can be caused by the sun, skin conditions, age, and genetics. Textural abnormalities like wrinkles and acne scars, as well as pigmentation changes such as age spots, freckles, sunspots, or visible blood vessels, are examples of this. Furthermore, the skin may lose tone, feel less firm, and lose its healthy shine.

Skin rejuvenation refers to a multitude of techniques that try to heal any damage to your skin. Skin damage can occur as a result of sun exposure, an underlying health problem, or as a natural part of the ageing process.

You can now choose from many types of anti ageing treatment.

What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

The laser treatment entails the use of lasers to help enhance the texture and appearance of the skin. I may recommend either ablative or non-ablative lasers based on your specific needs and goals.

Carbon dioxide (CO2) and Erbium lasers are examples of ablative lasers. CO2 laser resurfacing treatments can eliminate scars, warts, and deep wrinkles.

Erbium is used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, and other superficial skin concerns. Ablative lasers of both types remove the skin’s outer layers.

On the other hand, non-ablative lasers, do not eliminate any layers of skin. Pulsed light, pulsed-dye, and fractional lasers are examples of these. These lasers can be used to treat rosacea, spider veins, and acne scars.

What Is Facial Skin Rejuvenation? 

Facial rejuvenation can be accomplished by surgical or non-surgical means. The invasiveness and depth of therapy of procedures might vary.

Through targeted operations, face reshaping, and skin modifications, surgical techniques can restore facial symmetry. Non-surgical techniques can address localised face issues such as wrinkles, skin laxity, hyperpigmentation, and scars by targeting particular depths of facial features.

A brow lift (forehead lift) , blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), facelift (rhytidectomy), and neck lift are all surgical or invasive cosmetic rejuvenation procedures. Chemical peels, Botox, dermal fillers, laser resurfacing, and radiofrequency are examples of non-surgical face rejuvenation procedures.

There is no one solution when it comes to determining which face rejuvenation therapy is the best.

What Is the Best Rejuvenation for Face Treatment?

We all age differently and each skin type has various requirements. The best approach to determine which therapy is ideal for you is to schedule a consultation in which you can discuss your objectives and create a treatment plan based on your lifestyle, genetics, requirements, and budget. You can book a consultation with me here.

Here are the best rejuvenation treatments:

1. Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers restore youthful proportions by correcting hollowing around the eyes, as well as volume and contour loss in the cheeks, temples, and jawline.

The majority of dermal fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid, a natural chemical present in our skin that keeps it plump and hydrated. Juvederm, Voluma, Vollure, and Volbella are popular dermal fillers. They allow natural movement and expression on the surface of the skin while helping reduce the signs of ageing.

2. Light Therapy

A potent IPL or intense pulsed light therapy can significantly reduce the look of pigmentation, such as brown patches and redness. By boosting collagen and minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it also improves skin texture, pore size, and sun damage.

3. Radiofrequency Therapy

Radiofrequency therapy is a calming, non-invasive procedure. This treatment stimulates the body’s collagen formation, which is necessary for maintaining a youthful and radiant appearance. It also tightens the skin and enhances elasticity, skin tone, and texture.

Moreover, radiofrequency treatments are the simplest way to keep your skin tight and radiant. It also produces effects with little downtime and, with the appropriate number of treatments, can significantly decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

4. Facetite

Facetite uses a thin probe that slips beneath the skin to pleasantly tighten skin and melt fat with no incisions and little to no bruises.

In comparison to standard liposuction, fat is softly dissolved on contact while the skin is tightened at the same time. 

5. Botox

Botox London is one of the most widely used anti-ageing therapies. It is generally inexpensive, has minimal dangers, and does not need any recovery time.

Botulinum toxin injections are useful for temporarily reducing wrinkles on the face, eye region, and neck produced by repeated motions such as smiling, frowning, or lifting eyebrows. Botox is used to lower the degree of muscle movement, smoothing existing wrinkles and preventing the growth of deep lines in the future.

6. Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are used to address wrinkles, scars, age spots, and discolouration.

During chemical peels, an acid solution is used to disintegrate skin cells and remove the epidermis’ top layers. Moreover, the acid solution’s kind and strength dictate how far it penetrates and the results chemical peeling achieves.

7. Microneedling

Microneedling is by far the most common therapy for acne scars. The method is intended to induce minor skin injuries that encourage the creation of collagen and elastin.

To alleviate any discomfort, a local anaesthetic cream can be used prior to microneedling, and therapeutic ingredients such as hyaluronic acid or ascorbic acid can be employed for deep penetration. Microneedling is also another method of stimulating collagen, with the heat energy produced by radiofrequency enhancing the efficacy of needling.

Rejuvenating treatments can be non-surgical or surgical.

What Is Rejuvenation Treatment?

As you get older, your skin begins to tell you a story—lazy summer days spent in the sun, puberty’s trials, and every time your grin reached your eyes. Significant weight increase or decrease might need its own chapter. Without a doubt, your skin may be the outward manifestation of a well-lived life.

However, these changes to your skin are not always positive. Textural imperfections such as wrinkles, freckles, sunspots, and cellulite may all be treated with skin rejuvenation. These methods, which include skin care products, treatments, and in-office procedures, are designed to enhance the look of your skin. The ultimate objective of all skin rejuvenation procedures is to display younger, smoother skin.

When it comes to rejuvenating procedures, it is critical to work with a genuine board-certified plastic surgeon who specialises in facelift surgery and knows the science of facial ageing.

You require the services of a specialist that not only knows the ageing process but can also assess if a noninvasive or invasive operation is required to attain your desired outcomes. You may believe you require a facelift or neck lift when, in fact, you might only need filler and Botox, or vice versa.

Rejuvenating skin treatments must be done after an extensive consultation.

Taking Care of Your Skin After Rejuvenating Treatments

Our skin gradually loses some of its suppleness and vitality as we age. Here are some things you can do that help renew your skin:

Wash With a Gentle Cleanser

Treatments for skin rejuvenation often include sloughing off or mildly puncturing the skin’s surface. While pain is usually mild, using certain items right after might cause irritation and discomfort.

Wash with lukewarm water and mild cleaners to avoid this. Exfoliants and products containing abrasive chemicals, such as the following, should be avoided:

  • Synthetic dyes and scents
  • Dimethicone or silicone
  • Propylene glycol and other alcohols
  • Sulfates, for example, sodium lauryl sulfate

Use Moisturiser and Sunscreen

After a skin treatment, it’s important to hydrate the skin with a heavy moisturiser and drink lots of water to prevent dehydration. This can make the skin feel tight and uncomfortable.

Moreover, avoid sun exposure as much as possible. The impact of the sun on the exposed deeper layers of skin can be far more damaging than UV damage to an undamaged epidermis. If you must spend time in the sun, use a full-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to protect your skin from dangerous UVA and UVB radiation.

Rejuvenation procedures offer a more relaxed attitude to recuperation due to their less invasive nature and rapid healing period. Daily routines may be resumed soon in most circumstances, although there are a few exceptions.

Conclusion

As with any elective medical operation, face rejuvenation should only be performed if you are in good physical, psychological, and mental health. When choosing a rejuvenation procedure, you should ensure that your body and immune system are in excellent form to reduce risks.
