Remember Blood Orchids from the second installment of the Anaconda Franchise?
People putting their lives in jeopardy to get to the elixir of youth. Thankfully you don’t have to undertake perilous journeys amid giant reptile-infested forests to take a few years off your face anymore. A simple facial rejuvenation treatment will suffice.
As we age our skin starts showing signs of wear. Blemishes from when you didn’t take off your makeup after a night out, fine lines and sunspots from when you forgot your SPF, and dark circles from hours of nocturnal binge-watching. Suddenly your skin isn’t holding up so well and no amount of the most expensive skincare does anything.
Sounds like you? Well the fix is easy. With the latest skin rejuvenation treatments, you can chuck your worries in the bin. From chemical peels to laser you can find treatments targeting any and every issue you might have.
WHAT ARE THESE TREATMENTS THEN?
HERE ARE SOME:
3 FACIAL REJUVENATION TREATMENTS THAT ARE SWELL RIGHT NOW
Sometimes also referred to as derma peeling or chemexfoliation is a treatment where a chemical solution is applied to your skin. The chemicals in the solution damage the first layers of the skin. These layers then peel off over the course of a few days and reveal fresh, new skin underneath.
Chemical peels are a great way to reverse fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, melasma, and even certain types of acne. Chemical peels can also help you get rid of textured, dull skin.
Do note that derma peeling may not be the best option if you have extremely sensitive skin (or take medication that causes sensitivity in the skin). Also, make sure to stay out of the sun for a few days until the healing period is over.
Dermabrasion is a way of causing trauma to the outer layers of the skin using a rapidly rotating device with an abrasive brush or wheel tip. The doctor moves the device over your face and essentially sands your skin.
As horrifying as that sounds, it is actually a great way to treat a number of skin concerns like acne scarring, wrinkles, blemishes, and even scars from surgery.
During the procedure, your dermatologist will numb your skin using anesthetics. If the dermabrasion goes deeper you will also have the option of asking for sedatives or general anesthesia.
The treated skin will look bruised and blotchy for a few weeks before the new skin starts taking its place. Dermabrasion has a relatively longer downtime but if you are willing to be patient you will receive amazing results.
Review your medical history with your doctor before you proceed as certain medications like isotretinoin can make you unfit for the procedure. You should avoid dermabrasion treatments if you have conditions like keloids etc. as well.
Laser Resurfacing uses a laser to treat the skin of blotches, blemishes, fine lines, and scars. There are two types of lasers that can be used in the procedure:
- Ablative Laser - An ablative laser targets the epidermis and heats the underlying layer or the dermis. This is a collagen-stimulating procedure. The skin that regrows after the treatment shows a marked increase in elasticity, firmness, and texture.
- Nonablative Laser - Nonablative lasers are a slightly less aggressive variety. The procedure is similar except for reduced downtime and considerably less noticeable results.
Pregnant or breastfeeding women are advised to avoid getting laser treatment. Before deciding to get the treatment, never fail to inform your dermatologist of your medical history. As with every other treatment, laser resurfacing too does more harm than good if you have certain medical conditions.
