We do our best to stay beautiful, but when it comes to sculpting beautiful skin, sometime it’s best to leave it to the professionals. Here are three beauty treatments to try for youthful, radiant skin:
What is botox?
Botox, also known as botulinum toxin, is a neurotoxic protein that is used commercially for medical and cosmetic use. Botox is a minimally invasive procedure, injected into skin to smooth wrinkles and fine lines, resulting in tighter, and more youthful looking skin. While many begin botox treatments as early as their twenties, the average botox patient is between ages 40 and 59. Other than light bruising to the area of injection, botox side-effects are generally minimal. Other medical benefits of botox include in treating those with hyperhydrosis, or excessive sweating, as well as treatment for migraine headaches.These minimally invasive treatments are currently on the rise; from 2012 to 2013 botox treatments in the United States rose 8%.
- Chemical Peel
What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is a noninvasive skin resurfacing treatment that involves a controlled application of chemicals, ultimately peeling away away the top layers of skin. Chemical peels provide a myriad of benefits, including a drastically reduce in wrinkles, acne scars, lines, skin discoloration, and roughness caused by sun damage. In the days following the procedure, the patient may experience redness, and peeling. During this time, it is strongly advised that the patient avoids UV rays, and if outside is urged to wear high SPF sunscreen. After the skin peels, a softer, more youthful looking layer of regenerated skin emerges.
What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive skin treatment that rejuvenates and brightens the skin. Tiny crystals are massaged onto the patient’s face, removing a layer of dead skin, resulting in a soft and glowing complexion. Unlike dermabrasion, microdermabrasion can be used for all skin types, as it is a much gentler and simpler procedure.
