Are you in your 30s? The 40s? Already having wrinkles, or just looking to prevent them? Yes, there are many ways to treat or suppress fine lines and wrinkles. But you ideally want to know the best out of the lot. Not just a moisturizer or body lotion, and definitely no surgery. Well, not to worry.
Here are the top non-surgical procedures to get your skin glowing in 2022.
Microneedling is one of the best and most popular anti-ageing skin treatments today. It works by encouraging your skin to produce more collagen and elastin. And as you probably already know, these substances are vital for making skin tissue rich in tone and texture.
Microneedling, like the name sounds, involves prickling the skin in several spots with tiny needles, causing injury. The skin is forced to repair this injury by creating new collagen-rich tissue. micro-needling takes only about 30 minutes, and the effects last for about 3-5 months.
Dermaplaning involves exfoliating dead skin cells with a blade aimed at 45 degrees. By removing these odd-looking skin cells, a fresh new layer emerges, giving you an overall better complexion.
However, this skin treatment doesn’t only exfoliate the skin; it also helps to eliminate undesirable vellus hair, sometimes called peach fuzz. No, shaving off facial hair doesn’t cause it to grow back thicker; that’s nothing but a misconception.
Your skin gets damaged and uneven the longer it’s exposed to the harsh environment and irritants. Prolonged exposure to UV rays can even cause premature skin ageing.
Dermaplaning is an effective non-surgical way to make your skin glow again by clearing off damaged skin cells.
Hydrafacial is a well-known and highly effective non-surgical method of treating ageing skin. In short, it’s the latest secret to getting smooth, clear, and rejuvenated skin in 2022.
Hydrafacial works by combining different skin treatments all in one go: cleansing and exfoliating the skin, unclogging pore spaces and injecting antioxidants and peptides.
By inserting these important nutrients directly into the skin tissue, you can rest assured that the effects will last long. Reviews from patients who had Hydrafacial by Dr. Ronald Espinoza said the treatment was painless, and the results lasted several years. The procedure takes only about half an hour and can restore your skin’s health to its optimal condition.
4. Sublime RF
Sublime stimulates collagen production by targeting certain skin areas with bi-polar radio frequency and light energies, which heat up and remodel the dermal tissue. It is a non-surgical procedure but involves significant use of technology, leveraging infrared light and radio-frequency. However, these energies offer a very low risk of side effects, so you can have peace of mind that your skin will look wrinkle-less once again.
Sublime RF can help lift sagging skin, reduce fine lines, and improve tone and texture.
FotoFacial is gradually growing popular in the world of cosmetology. Also called Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, the treatment uses intense pulses of light to penetrate the skin, stimulating collagen production, forcing blood vessels to constrict, and reducing wrinkles.
FotoFacials also help you get rid of unwanted cells and anything you’re being treated for.
Indeed, caring for your skin is easier said than done. Especially when you have a busy life, keeping up with a skincare routine becomes challenging. Fortunately, you can leverage any of the treatments above to repair whatever damage and fine lines that may have become visible over time.
