Beauty, we all want it. But what does it take to be beautiful? Skincare is the answer and there are many innovations in this field that you may not know about. Skincare helps with not only the beautification process of the skin but also with anti-aging and keeping your skin healthy.
There are many new advancements in skincare treatments that can help you on your journey to having beautiful, flawless skin. Let’s explore four of these innovations that can help you achieve healthy skin and a youthful appearance.
Microdermabrasion is a method of skin abrasion that is used to remove the outermost layer of dead cells on the skin. This process can be achieved using either diamond-tipped bits or aluminum oxide crystals, treated in an oxygen-fed stream. Oxygen rapidly brings blood flow to the area it is applied, this increases collagen production and leaves you with healthier-looking skin.
This process polishes your skin using crystals or fine particles rubbed against the surface to remove dead cells from your face and body. Afterward, the skin becomes smoother and more even-toned with fewer acne scars and wrinkles than before, treatment usually lasts anywhere from 15-30 minutes depending on how much time is needed for the procedure. The recovery time is very minimal and requires no bandages or surgery. There is usually no pain involved, either.
2. Microcurrent Skin Stimulation Treatment
This is based on the idea that the body heals itself through electrical currents. Microcurrent facial machines are used to stimulate collagen production, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture, increase the elasticity of the skin, reduce age spots and sun damage which also enables better absorption of products applied after treatment such as moisturizers and serums. This helps rejuvenate your skin for an even more youthful appearance without too much downtime or recovery time.
These innovative skincare treatments can help you achieve a healthier and more youthful-looking appearance without having to spend too much money. The results produced from these treatments usually last anywhere from six months up to two years, depending on how often it’s done and which procedure was used.
3. Chemical Peels
These new advancements in skincare help to improve the texture and cellular turnover of your skin. It can be used once or twice a month over time to lighten sun spots, reduce hyperpigmentation, soften wrinkles and promote collagen production. There is usually no downtime and recovery time is minimal. Used by dermatologists, plastic surgeons, estheticians, and spas, chemical peels are one of the most popular ways to rejuvenate your skin.
During this procedure, your esthetician applies chemical solutions on your skin that will remove the outer layers of your skin’s topmost epidermis by either “degloving” or “spreading” it which will allow new cells to form resulting in fresh, new skin you may have never seen before. This process does hurt, but it isn’t unbearable. You can visit an Aesthetics office or dermatologist and ask for a consultation.
4. Laser Skin Resurfacing
With this skin resurfacing technique, a laser is directed at the targeted area. Lasers can cut away or vaporize skin tissue to reduce wrinkles, remove damaged skin and even improve acne scars. A large number of lasers have been developed for this treatment method including carbon dioxide lasers, erbium: YAG lasers, and pulsed dye lasers that emit a beam of light energy directly onto the skin’s surface by targeting pigment with high precision. The CO2 laser targets bruising underneath the dermis (the deepest layer of your skin).
The issue with these methods is that it requires downtime for recovery, especially since there are many different types. Depending on how much damage has been done; you could end up spending days in bed recovering instead of taking care of yourself like you normally do. Laser surgery removes the top layer of your skin to reveal the newer layer beneath it.
This will tighten your skin and make it look like you’ve had a mini-facelift. The procedure is usually done in a series of three to five sessions, with each lasting about 30 minutes and spaced about four weeks apart. You can expect redness for at least 24 hours after the treatment, but results last up to one year. Recovery time takes about two weeks.
There are many new innovations that help with the aging process. From laser skin resurfacing to chemical peels, there are a lot of options out there for you in terms of skincare treatments. However, it’s important to know these risks before jumping into any treatment, so you can be aware and educated about what might happen when deciding on which procedure best suits your needs.
