One of the issues, apart from the physical and mental health (this might be kind of recent), that has worried people since centuries is -Beauty; and that too especially women. Nowadays, we also find men being very particular about their skin.
Centuries back, skin treatments involved the use of several mixtures made from homemade substances. Obviously, the objective was to make the skin look young. It was also applicable to hair and body- and today, centuries later, this issue persists.
Even though we hear a lot of people say that “beauty is more than just superficial appearance “or “accepting your looks”, it doesn’t really stop people from trying to maintain their ‘youthful skin’.
Today, the use of advanced technology and new scientific discoveries have made skin treatments more effective and, in some cases, long lasting.
If we think about it honestly, aren’t most of us in the lookout for recent developments in skin treatments which are more effective than the ones we are undergoing? Obviously, we are!
We know that aging is inevitable, but we all want to age gracefully without looking gaunt or haggard. There has been a huge rise in aesthetic treatments which effectively manage concerns like scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, body fat and so much more.
This article is about these few skin treatments for those who really are seeking to try something new. It is possible that some of them would be known to you.
1. Neuromodulators for Tighter skin
Neuromodulators are generally injectables that restrict the facial muscles from contracting. This softens the skin and relaxes it. The most popular neuromodulator is Botox, which acts as a muscle relaxant. The other neuromodulators that are commonly used are Dysport and Xeomin. Out of these three, Xeomin has a quicker onset of action and the effects last longer.
According to some newer guidelines, it is considered better if you start early so that one can avoid deeper wrinkles from forming. After all, we don’t want a frozen look, do we? If one starts early, the face looks well-rested and the results are more satisfactory.
2. The Liquid Face Lift
This skin treatment is mostly used as an anti-aging option which is a combination of Botox and Fillers. It is done in such a way that it makes the skin appear younger. These are injected at several anchoring points of the facein order to lift it. I consider this to be an excellent solution and a much better option as opposed to surgery!
This is mostly a lunchtime procedure and doesn’t require hospitalization. The procedure is carried out under topical anesthetic creams and has minimal side effects like mild bruising at the point of injections, that might just go off within a week. Few people might notice a mild swelling on their face which lasts for a day.
The Liquid Facelift re-contours drooping facial features and reduces the sagging of the skin by filling it up from the inside. This non-invasive skin treatment is less expensive and less risky compared to the traditional face lift.
It is advised that you undergo this treatment with a plastic surgeon or qualified dermatologist who is trained and experienced with injectable fillers.
Morpheus8 is all about taking skin treatments or skin re-modelling to greater depths. This skin treatment is a combination of 3 things: needling, fractional treatments and radio frequency. This combination produces enough heat in the tissues and stimulates the production of collagen. Morpheus8 is a treatment in which the needles go deeper than any other needling treatments and has the ability to mold fat under the skin to obtain gratifying results. This also makes the contouring and defining of the subdermal layers easier and enables natural sculpting of the face. This treatment has no downtime, which makes it an excellent choice for people with a hectic schedule.
4. NYDG Oxygenesis Face Treatment
This skin treatment is basically the one you opt for when you want a last-minute glow. This treatment involves the combination of laser and oxygen.
Nd:YAG laser is a light based laser which helps in stimulating the collagen production in the skin and plumps it up. Along with it, a high-pressure hyperbaric oxygen jet is used on the face which pushes essential skin care ingredients like vitamins, peptides, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid into your skin which enhances the complexion.
5. Glass Botox
This skin treatment is not exactly like the conventional ‘Botox’ that we know of. This treatment, also known as Skin Botox, makes the skin look indescribably better. Here, the dermatologists change their needlework and instead of injecting Botox into the muscles, they inject it on the outer layer of the skin and lift it. This effectively tightens the pores and creates a smooth (glass-like) look.
This one here is an uber cool skin treatment. It targets stubborn fat like the love handles, belly paunch and double chins that just don’t budge no matter how much you exercise. And this treatment makes it possible and is much better than liposuction. This treatment uses Cryolipolysis technology, which is delivered through a vacuum applicator which freezes the fat layers by applying temperatures of -10 degrees to the skin of the targeted area, in cycles of 45 minutes. The underlying fat gets frozen and is gradually broken down by the liver and excreted from the body over a period of three months.
An important point to remember: This FDA approved body contouring treatment should not be misunderstood as a weight-loss treatment.
The only downside to this treatment is that it is pricey.
7. Transformation Face Lift
This face lift treatment is the best option for those who fear fillers. It uses a combination of ultrasound laser treatments and radiofrequency. The radiofrequency triggers the cells present in the skin’s dermal layers to boost collagen while the laser penetrates a little deeper and activates the facial muscles to lift the skin from inside out. The change is visible after the first treatment. The final look appears more natural than most fillers.
