It is a basic human instinct to stay young and beautiful for as long as possible. By following this instinct, people have started discovering methods that could keep them young and beautiful. These discoveries led humans to several anti-aging treatments over the years. Every day scientists are making groundbreaking discoveries in anti-aging techniques.
Therefore, below, we will discuss some incredible anti-aging techniques in detail that can reverse the aging clock for you.
Let’s find out!
Effects of Aging
Gravity, sun damage, weight loss, and bone structure changes have a high impact on aging. As you age, you will develop wrinkles, fine lines, loose and sagging skin, leading to reduced self-confidence and self-esteem issues. If you are getting your hopes up and thinking that you will tackle all your skin problems using only one treatment, you are out of luck. The treatment which could solve all your skin problems doesn’t exist. An expert cosmetic surgeon usually suggests different treatments for different skin problems.
Anti-Aging Treatment Methods
Below mentioned are some anti-aging treatments that can restore your dull, damaged, and sagging skin.
Micro-needling or Dermal Rollers is a therapy in which an instrument with tiny needles is rolled over the targeted area. Make sure to get this treatment from a professional dermatologist. If done wrong, it could do more harm than good. Cosmetic surgeons perform dermal rolling with or without radiofrequency energy. Selecting either of these depends upon the needs of the patients. Due to the controlled damage done by micro-needles, the production of collagen is stimulated. Dermal Rollers have successfully been used to treat wrinkles, lines, and scars.
In this method, acids are applied to the skin, which peels off the top layer. As a result, the dead skin cells are removed, and new tighter skin is revealed.
Chemical Skin Peels can reduce wrinkles, scars, sunburns, and discoloration. The results depend upon the peel’s strength, so the stronger the acid, the better the results. Only a medical specialist should apply stronger peels as it could leave your face severely damaged if anything goes wrong. The results of a stronger peel can last for up to two years. However, it all depends on the strength of acid being used in the procedure.
Microdermabrasion shouldn’t be confused with dermabrasion, as it is rarely used now. It can be done in a spa. In this procedure, sand crystals are rubbed on the face, and then these crystals are removed along with dead skin cells. It will mildly reduce the visibility of wrinkles and lines and is not much effective.
Cosmetic Injectables are chemicals injected into different parts of the body to enhance their appearance and return the skin’s youthful glow.
Injectors like Botulinum toxin temporarily paralyze the muscles of the area where they are injected. Due to this, the surrounding skin stops folding and it ultimately prevents wrinkles. It only works on expression lines of surprise and frown. Due to the filler injected, the skin becomes smooth and stops making wrinkles.
Only an experienced professional should perform the procedure because it can cause serious consequences and deform your skin if something goes wrong. Treatment’s effect can last for months and sometimes even longer, if done regularly.
Injecting dermal fillers under the skin can fill the creases of skin, such as smile lines. This procedure smoothes out overall skin features rather than tightening them.
Fillers such as Hyaluronic acid last for six to twelve months. The areas of the face that have less motion in them tend to last longer than the body parts that move, such as lips.
The most effective technique might be fat transfer. In this process, fat is harvested from the patient’s own body and is injected into the desired area. The effects of treatment might last for up to 10 years. However, the chances are that the procedure might not work at all, and fat might get absorbed into the body.
Synthetic fillers last for 10 to 20 months, but there is a catch while using this technique. Lumps might form under the skin, which needs to be removed surgically, but it can leave the face deformed.
Fat melting is an effective technique but it is limited to certain body parts such as chin. In this procedure, a chemical known as Dioxycholic acid is used to melt the fat in a specific area. It is especially effective for the chin area and can easily remove the fat of double chin.
Results of this procedure are quite good and the patient would need multiple injections for successful results. Due to the removal of fat, skin in that area will become tightened.
Liquid Face Lift
In this procedure, dermal fillers and muscle relaxers are used for the facelift.
There are anti-aging techniques in which light is used to heat the skin, and controlled injury is created to force the body for enhanced collagen production.
The penetration of the laser depends upon its wavelength. The shorter the wavelength, the deeper the penetration. Lasers are used to decrease the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines. This technique usually doesn’t work on deep skin lines. There are many types of laser treatments classified according to the depth at which they work and heat or destruct the tissues.
IPL (Intense Pulse Light)
In this procedure, high energy light is used to heat the dermis, which activates collagen in the skin. It is the best procedure for treating skin discoloration and improves texture. However, it is less effective when it comes to decreasing the visibility of wrinkles on the skin.
For this method to work flawlessly, six sessions are required, along with the maintenance done a couple of times in a year. It would take some time for a person to notice the changes because this technique’s effects appear gradually. The procedure is painful, and you may require topical anesthetic. You will also feel swelling after the treatment.
Surgical Method (Face Lift)
A surgical facelift is a surgery which is done to reduce the visibility of wrinkles and lines. This surgery can tackle the effects caused on your by aging. This procedure is performed by tightening the underline muscles of face to create more aesthetically pleasing facial expressions. The excess fat under the facial skin is also removed. In this way, the face can look younger. This treatment is the most efficient anti-aging treatment among all the other treatments mentioned above.
