As we age and are exposed to free radicals from the sun, environmental toxins and the aging process, our smooth, soft, vibrant and tight youthful appearance often evolves into fine lines, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation spots, sun spots and often enlarged pores with a rough and dry skin texture. And along with these visible tell tale signs of aging, is often a loss of self confidence that may profoundly affect your social and professional interactions and relationships.
If you are looking for a solution, it is easy to be confused by all the anti aging skin care products and claims for breakthrough anti aging treatments. These three tips will help you understand your options for skin rejuvenation and a total facial renewal without invasive procedures or using products that can actually cause more damage in the long term.
Aesthetic Beauty Tip #1:
Medical grade skin care products (Medicated cosmetics also called cosmeceuticals) are your safest and most effective choice. Many products are not carefully regulated by the FDA and include ingredients that can actually harm your skin. Choose only skin care products made with all natural ingredients that are selected for your specific skin type and needs. This should be determined by a qualified aesthetic practitioner after a careful skin evaluation.
Aesthetic Beauty Tip #2:
Non invasive laser skin care treatments can be a remarkable anti aging solution for tightening and rejuvenating the skin. The newest version of the Dual Fraxel laser, the Q switched ND:YAG laser such as Revelite, and the newly improved Thermage technology are among the best skin rejuvinantion lasers available today. This safe, comfortable technology can be used on the face, neck, hands and other areas of the body and has many applications for anti aging and other beauty treatments, many of which are not offered by cosmetic surgery procedures and injectable fillers such as Botox®.
We have a large collection of lasers in each of our centers to suit each skin type and skin condition. Laser skin care treatment offers dramatic anti aging benefits including skin rejuvenating color correction, skin tightening and wrinkle reduction. Laser treatments and Intense Pulse Light (IPL) correct uneven skin tone and eliminate such imperfections as brown spots, sun spots, age spots, red blotches, multiple freckles and rough texture. Other improvements include clearing of problem acne and reducing the flushing red, ruddy complexion of Rosacea.
Laser skin treatments can reduce broken capillaries, spider veins of the face and other vascular based conditions. After a treatment regimen that may range from 5-7 treatments, sun damage and visible signs of aging are significantly reduced, restoring a youthful, clear and radiant complexion.
Aesthetic Beauty Tip #3:
There is no beauty without beautiful skin. Self treatment for anti aging and skin rejuvenation can limit your results and lead to more problems later on. This is why careful evaluation by a skilled aesthetic professional is highly recommended. With advanced equipment and examination techniques, a trained practitioner will determine the best course of treatment that is likely to produce the best results for achieving your goals. Sometimes skin care products alone are enough while other times your needs will be better met with a combination of laser treatment and a regimen of pharmaceutical grade skin care products.
Before you reach for that product on the shelf, consider finding a reputable skin care professional who can offer you the safest and most effective skin care technologies, techniques and products for reclaiming your most youthful and beautiful skin.
