Getting the Best Solutions for Your Skin to Help You Look and Feel Your Best
If you want to improve the look and feel of your skin, there are many facial rejuvenation treatments available today. But since there are so many, it can be difficult to choose the best one for your skin. Each treatment has its own benefits, but some treatments may be more effective than others, depending on your health, skin, and treatment needs.
To help you decide which facial rejuvenation treatments will meet your needs and be most effective for your skin, consult with a skin care specialist. A specialist will help you figure out the best course of treatments depending on your medical history, medications, age, skin type, skin colour, and desired results.
Here’s a look at the different types of facial rejuvenation treatments available to help restore your skin to a smoother, youthful appearance.
Botox & Fillers
Botox, Dysport, dermal fillers, and other injectable treatments yield varying results—with some more subtle than others. These injectable treatments are commonly used to:
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles;
- Smooth and tighten skin;
- Add volume to the face; and,
- Provide fuller lips.
Your skin care specialist will determine which of these injectable treatments will be most effective for treating your skin based on the look you’re going for.
This chemical treatment is used on the face, neck, and hands. Chemical peels will reduce the appearance of:
- Fine lines;
- Sun damage; and,
- Rough patches.
Chemical peel treatments do not help reduce the size of large pores or the appearance of deep scars. This treatment is also not recommended for patients with dark complexions, a history of warts, or abnormal pigmentation since it may not be as effective.
You can use microdermabrasion treatment in sections or over your entire face. This treatment exfoliates and removes dead layers of skin to:
- Smooth deep scars—either from acne or an accident;
- Minimize fine lines; and,
- Remove precancerous growths.
Microdermabrasion treatments are not recommended for patients with dark complexions, allergic skin reactions, cold sores, or fever blisters. However, your doctor may suggest taking medication to prevent flare-ups during treatment.
This treatment uses laser technology to stimulate collagen growth in the skin and reduce enlarged blood vessels. The results include:
- Smoother, tighter skin;
- Improved skin tone;
- Reduced fine lines and wrinkles;
- Reduced pore size and oil glands;
- Minimized birthmarks and warts;
- Reduced redness;
- Reduced Rosacea symptoms; and,
- Reduced acne scars.
There are different laser treatments available, with some being more effective at treating darker complexions. However, laser treatment is not recommended for treating active acne.
Depending on your desired facial rejuvenation needs, your skin care specialist may recommend a combination of treatments to get the best results for your skin. Many factors play a role in deciding which treatments are best for each patient, so it’s important to be as detailed as possible about your medical history and skin care needs during your consultation.
