While there’s nothing wrong with choosing to age naturally, there’s also no harm in trying to slow down the clock through dermatological treatments. However, how do you know which treatments are effective and which ones are a waste of time and money? Let’s find out:
Many clinics offer Botox in Salt Lake City as an anti-aging treatment. While it can be used to treat neck spasms, lazy eye, overactive bladder, and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), Botox injections are primarily used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, hence the anti-aging effect.
Botox is widely used in the dermatology community and is currently the most popular cosmetic procedure in the US. However, if you want to have a more natural look with movement in your entire face, opt for smaller amounts of Botox.
2. Chemical peel
The older we get, the lesser our ability to shed the outer layer of our skin on our own. Hence, once you reach a certain age, a chemical peel can help your skin remove the outer layer and help the new layer emerge.
Chemical peels use acids to shed the outer layer of skin, so they can sting and burn your face while working their magic. But to make sure you’re not allergic or sensitive to chemical peels, ask your dermatologist before booking a session.
Microdermabrasion is recommended for adults of all age groups, not just those who want to look younger. In this procedure, a metal wand with tiny particles is used to remove the cells from the top layer of your skin and catalyze the growth of a new layer. The effect is skin that is smooth, brighter, softer, and essentially younger-looking for 3-5 days.
But due to the benefits of microdermabrasion only lasting for a little under a week, it is more recommended for people who are attending special occasions, such as weddings, parties, or anniversary dates. However, there are microdermabrasion procedures that can have effects lasting for more than two weeks, which is more ideal for people looking for a consistent anti-aging regimen.
4. Cosmetic fillers
As our bodies age, we lose our ability to produce collagen naturally. Collagen is what makes our skin firm and plump, and when it decreases, our skin can lose volume and sag.
If you notice your face looking a bit saggy in certain areas, go to a dermatologist and ask about cosmetic fillers. Fillers can help sallow spots look plumper and lift sagging areas to give your face a healthy, younger look.
Do your varicose veins or “spider veins” bother you? If so, don’t worry; sclerotherapy can get rid of them. Sclerotherapy makes use of saline injections to remove large veins that are too close to your skin’s surface. For smaller veins, a laser may be used to get rid of them.
Our bodies will eventually grow past their prime, but that doesn’t mean we are less worthy of beautifying ourselves. If you want to rejuvenate your skin and perhaps slow down the clock on your physical age, these procedures can help you achieve younger-looking skin.
