Four of the Best Anti-Aging Treatments

The one fact of life is that you can’t stop the aging process. You can however reduce it’s physical effects on your skin with these four treatments. The best part about them is that they won’t break the bank like plastic surgery, and that they can be done in your dermatologist’s office – some even during your lunch break! Here they are:
1. Microdermabrasion
This particular treatment physically removes your dry and flaky skin using a device with small crystals that exfoliates your face. During the treatment, all the trapped dirt, oil and grime are scraped away from your topmost skin layer, exposing newer and younger-looking skin underneath. Another result of this treatment is a smoother skin texture.
2. Cosmetic Injectables
Botox and fillers used in tandem can help soften the blow of aging. First:
Botox relaxes your facial muscles, minimizing the formation of wrinkles. Second: fillers then fill out the crevices, wrinkles and fine lines that currently exist. The result then is a more plump and smoother-looking facial appearance.
3. Laser Resurfacing
Fractal lasers use a concentrated beam of light to penetrate into your skin’s collagen layer to stimulate the creation of elastin and collagen. Elastin is what prevents your skin from sagging, while collagen is what keeps your skin it’s shape and strength. This treatment is a way to make your skin smoother with an even tone, and a tighter feel.
4. Skin Peels
This treatment does what its name suggests – peeling off your skin, more specifically, the topmost layer of your skin. This layer contains dirt, dead cells, and blemishes. Glycolic acids and lactic acids are some of the most common substances used for this treatment. Skin peels help even out your skin tone by removing the old, damaged layers of your skin and revealing your skin’s lower, and younger layers.
