As we age, there is a substantial loss of subcutaneous fat and collagen from our skin, which results in visible signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines. There are certain external factors such as overexposure to sun, stress, and lifestyle habits like smoking that accelerate the aging process as well. While one may be advised to keep hydrated and include a healthy diet in their lifestyle that goes a long way when done regularly but definitely can not combat the damage done already. This is where the popularity of anti-aging treatment came into existence and their popularity is on a continuous rise ever since, which can make you look young, fresh, and rejuvenates. Here are some of the most widely used anti-aging treatments, out of which injectables are the most preferred one
Dermal fillers also are known as soft tissue fillers, are substances formulated to be injected beneath the skin surface for adding fullness and volume. The filler materials usually fill in deep folds of the skin like the nasolabial folds also commonly known as the laugh lines, give you hollow cheeks and fuller lips. Injectable fillers are not just for smoothing or tightening skin, they also provide your skin with a more youthful look. Some of the common fillers used as an anti-aging treatment are
- Calcium hydroxylapatite.
- Hyaluronic acid, which is abundantly found in certain tissues and fluids in the body known for providing plumpness to the skin.
- Polyalkylimide a transparent gel, which is highly compatible with the body.
- Polylactic acid, known for stimulating the skin for more collagen production
There are also fat transfers, where the body fat from one’s own body is extracted, processed, and injected into your face. This may be temporary as the fat may be absorbed back into the body.
Botulinum toxin, also commonly known as Botox is known to paralyze your facial muscles temporarily when injected. This prevents the creasing up of the skin that eventually causes wrinkles. It works on frown (vertical) lines also known as expression lines and surprise (horizontal) lines present on the forehead. Botox therapy smoothens them and prevents these lines from becoming more visible. The procedure of Botox itself is quite painless, but you must be cautious not to rub the area or lie down for several hours after the procedure – this is for preventing the toxin to spread to other areas.
When muscle relaxers and dermal fillers are combined it is called a liquid facelift. A liquid facelift is basically employed for lifting, filling, re-contouring, plumping, and smoothing of the face with the help of injectable dermal fillers and muscle relaxers.
The exfoliation of the top layer in your skin by application of acids such as glycolic acid, lactic acid, and trichloroacetic acid is called chemical peeling. As a result, the dead skin sheds off and new tighter skin is formed as a result of new collagen production. If you have small scars, discoloration, or sun-damaged skin, then you are the right candidate for this procedure.
This is the best treatment for acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles of your skin. The procedure involves rolling a cylinder covered with tiny needles in your skin. The greater the damage to your skin, the greater is the effect.
To improve your skin texture, fine crystals are sprayed on your skin surface to remove dead skin cells.
