Which treatment is best for anti-aging?


With so many anti-aging treatments to choose from it may be best to start with the types of treatments that are both popular and have good results. Here are five that get the most attention:

1. Laser resurfacing anti-aging skin treatments are mostly pain-free, and non-invasive and increase the energy levels of the cells in the treated areas. These stimulate collagen production that increases elasticity and gives a more youthful appearance.

2. Botox may be the most popular anti-aging treatment and is growing in popularity for anti-aging and in the prevention of aging.

3. Chemical peels are a skin resurfacing treatment. They remove old skin leaving behind smoother skin. They can be used to repair sun damage, acne, blemishes, and fine lines.

4. Microdermabrasion and dermabrasion are treatments that are used to renew the surface of the skin. They improve tone and texture while they help remove sun damage, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melisma, and other skin conditions.

5. Dermal fillers are the last on this list. As people age, the skin loses its elasticity and starts to sag. Dermal fillers can plump up the skin lessening the look of wrinkles and giving the skin a fuller look.

What is the most important anti-aging?


Retinoids are derived from vitamin A and are considered to be the best anti-aging ingredient. Retinoids help with collagen remodeling and increase skin cell turnover. This will improve skin color and uneven skin tone. Retinoid is an umbrella term that includes an array of more specific ingredients, including prescription strength retinoids and over-the-counter retinol.

Retinol is considered the powerhouse anti-aging ingredient. It stimulates collagen production and cell turnover, naturally. Retinol has acquired a bad name over the years. People think that it is too harsh and thins the skin. Retinol when combined with other ingredients, like antioxidants and soothing ingredients.

What type of procedure will I need?


The type of anti-aging procedure you will need will depend on what your goal or goals are. The first step in determining what procedure is best is to assess your main concern.  Are you unhappy with uneven color or hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines, thinning skin, or redness? Are you looking for the right daily skincare routine? Do you want to try something proactive to prevent fine lines and wrinkles?

Whatever your concern is, the best place to start the process of finding the right procedure for you is to talk to a dermatologist and create a plan.

How long will it take for me to see results from these procedures?
