Our face is often the first part of our body that shows aging, many of us want to look younger. Fortunately, in this modern age, many treatments can make you look younger by reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles without surgery.
Minimally invasive procedures include any treatment requiring no incisions and injections with no surgery required. Here are four such processes that can let you have a youthful appearance. Before choosing your treatment, research properly and consult your dermatologist.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive popular treatment that is used for anti-aging. It involves using tiny needles that pierce the skin and create minor wounds stimulating collagen synthesis – the constituent of the skin that improves the appearance of aging. Microneedling is performed on the face, chest, neck, and even hands.
This process is often used to treat wrinkles in the face, neck, chest, and hands, although it is not limited to it. It is an excellent option for you in your 30s or 40s since it needs to be done before Botox and fillers. Each session takes 30 to 60 minutes, and you need three to six treatments to see results.
In this category, Morpheus8 treatments are proving to be more effective than other treatments as they use radio-frequency technology after skin piercing. This radiofrequency reaches the dermis and stimulates collagen production. It also can be used to treat hyperpigmentation, the appearance of stretch marks, and scars.
Fillers are one of the most popular anti-aging treatments that fill wrinkles and fine lines. Dermal fillers create fuller and prominent looking cheeks and lips, reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds and smile lines.
Different types of dermal fillers address varying types of specific aging concerns. Collagen fillers plump up the skin, reducing sagging. Hyaluronic acid fillers, found naturally in the body, retain the moisture in your skin, giving you a more youthful look.
The treatment usually takes around 30 minutes with instant results but is seen best a week after the swelling has decreased. Temporary minimal bruising and swelling can appear initially. The effect lasts four to 12 months but depends on where you injected it and your body’s reaction.
Laser treatments are ideal if you want to target wrinkles and discoloration at the same time. They use lasers to target the concerned area of the skin, stimulating collagen and skin cell regeneration.
The treatment usually requires three or more sittings of 20 to 30 minutes each; the best results are seen after completing your course. It is most suitable for the face and neck area. After the treatments, the skin may appear flaky for three to six days. Besides wrinkles, laser treatments also help treat sun damage, fine lines, and acne scars.
Your skin gets thinner with age, resulting in more visible veins. Laser treatment also solves this through laser vein treatments that reduce the appearance of spider and varicose veins.
Botox is one of the most popular anti-aging treatments you hear about. It’s used to treat crow’s feet, glabellar lines, and nasolabial folds. With a botox treatment, a toxin made from a bacteria called Clostridium bacterium is used. The toxin temporarily freezes muscles by paralyzing and blocking nerve signals which blocks muscle contraction of muscles, so there is no formation of wrinkles.
The treatment takes around 30 minutes, and the result is not instant and may take up to 10 days to appear. A slight redness and rarely bruising are seen after the treatment. The effects last four to six months, so regular treatments are required to maintain the results.
Minimally invasive treatments can give you a more youthful appearance. Microneedling regenerates collagen production in your skin and can treat even scars and hyperpigmentation. Dermal fillers fill up the wrinkles in your skin and give your face more volume. Laser also targets wrinkles and discoloration and causes anti-aging by causing collagen synthesis. Botox paralyzes the muscle in your target area and reduces the look of wrinkles. Make sure you consult your dermatologist before finalizing treatment.
