As you age, the production of collagen and elastin that helps maintain your skin elasticity reduces, leading to some effects. These effects may include skin laxity, facial wrinkles, dry skin, and loss of facial volume. Austin anti-aging treatments can help maintain your skin health and youthful appearance. There are various anti-aging procedures targeting different areas and skin concerns. You can also improve your skin appearance by taking a healthy diet or getting IV vitamin therapy to give your body certain nutrients essential for healthy skin. Below are common anti-aging treatments.
Botox is a common treatment used to achieve smoother facial skin. Botox injections are made from purified Botulinum toxin. The injections paralyze your facial muscles and block nerve signals from them, preventing muscle contraction and the natural formation of wrinkles. Botox reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet, and nasolabial folds. Results of Botox often last four to six months. You can get additional injections to maintain your outcomes.
Fillers involve your doctor injecting special chemicals into your facial skin to treat various aging effects. They add volume to facial areas that have lost collagen and elastin. Fillers can help eliminate wrinkles and fine lines and plump thin lips and cheeks. There are various types of fillers, each containing different ingredients. The commonly used are hyaluronic acid and collagen injections. The results can last six to eighteen months or more, depending on the type of filler used and how you care for your skin.
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive anti-aging treatment. It involves your doctor making injuries on your skin using tiny sterilize needles. The created tiny wounds trigger your body’s natural healing response and stimulate collagen production. You can be a good candidate for microneedling if you are in your thirties or forties and have started developing fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling can also treat scarring resulting from acne and reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
Chemical peels involve using special chemicals to eliminate the upper layer of your facial skin. The chemical solutions exfoliate your top damaged skin layer and remove old dead skin cells. Eliminating the top dead skin cells stimulates collagen synthesis and gives you new, smoother skin and a youthful look. Chemical peels help reduce blemishes, smooth acne scars and treat uneven skin tone. There are three major forms of chemical peels; mild, medium, and deep. The peel your dermatologist uses depends on your skin type, concern, and desired results.
Laser therapy uses concentrated beams of light to treat damaged skin areas. The light energy is converted into heat to help still collagen production and skin cell regeneration. Lasers can treat various skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and sun damage. Laser treatments can also treat hair loss and reduce the appearance of varicose and spider veins. Laser treatment improves skin tone and texture, giving you a youthful appearance.
Anti-aging treatments help prevent, reduce, or reverse age-related effects. Common anti-aging treatments include Botox, fillers, microneedling, chemical peels, and laser therapies. Schedule an appointment at Revive Medspa and Clinic for anti-aging treatment to improve your skin tone and texture.
