Start A Daily Skin Care Routine

But the way you look after your skin when you’re younger and the care you give it as you start to age can have a dramatic effect on your face.

If you spend lot of time in the sun, smoke, drink, and fail to moisturize every day you’re likely to find your skin ages prematurely.  Eating right and having a good diet help your skin to stay soft and supple too.

Treatments To Reverse The Signs

Luckily, there are treatments available that can help to reverse these signs of aging.

Non-invasive procedures have come a long way in recent years and the variety of treatments available mean there is bound to be something to treat your skin and the problem areas (such as dark spots under the eyes) you want to tackle.

Turning Back The Clock?

These treatments won’t turn back the clock and instantly make you look 20 again, but what they do is take a few years off your face and make your skin look rejuvenated, revitalized and considerably healthier, giving you the confidence you need to age gracefully.

There are many do it yourself skin peel kits available, such as this one from Amazon.com

Skin peels

There are lots of different skin peel treatments (or chemical peels) available and the one you choose will depend on your individual circumstances and the particular problem you want to tackle.

Often, many skin problems are created due to the build-up of dead skin cells, which make the skin seem thick and dull instead of bright and youthful.

Skin peels reverse this effect and work to improve both the condition and appearance of the skin. This is particularly beneficial if your skin has suffered from sun damage or you have dry, rough skin.

There are two types of skin peel you could go for:

  • Agera skin peel

This skin peel is pain-free and doesn’t require the skin to be prepped in advance. It is non-glycolic, which means the skin won’t shred or become irritated by the treatment.

  • Obagi blue peel

When you get a skin peel of this sort, it usually takes about 20 minutes to apply, depending on the number of coats your doctor believes you need.

After the procedure, you skin will swell slightly and start to peel. After around seven to 10 days the skin will have completely finished peeling and your face will already look brighter. This improvement will continue over the next four to six weeks until you are left with healthier, younger looking skin.

Microdermabrasion

Medical microdermabrasion is a way of mechanically exfoliating the skin using medical grade crystals, instead of chemicals or laser treatments.

Dead skin cells are removed from the outer layer of the skin to give it a new lease of life. It helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars, winkles, uneven skin tone and sun damage, as well as being a treatment for acne-prone skin, blackheads, superficial age spots and hyperpigmentation.

As you can see, microdermabrasion can be used in many different circumstances and a lot of people find it helps their skin to feel rejuvenated, while it also improves elasticity and overall texture.

Dermaroller

Dermaroller is an advanced treatment that encourages the skin to repair and rejuvenate itself. As well as reducing fine lines and wrinkles, it helps to tighten pores that have become too large.  See the video below for more details.

Dermaroller uses micro skin-needling and a topical anaesthetic will be applied to your face prior to the treatment to help numb the area.

Thousands of micro-medical needle-columns penetrate the dermis of the skin, which encourages the body to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, which makes the face look thicker and healthier.

PPx Laser Rejuvenation

Laser rejuvenation treatments have become an increasingly popular way for people to reverse the signs of aging.

PPx lasers are one the latest developments in light-based technology and are a painless yet highly effective treatment if you want rejuvenated and youthful looking skin. It can be used to treat many different signs of aging, including:

·         Uneven skin

·         Acne

·         Redness

·         Acne rosacea

·         Brown spots

·         Freckles

·         Sun damage

·         Facial thread veins

·         Dull-looking skin

The treatment you decide on will depend on what you and your doctor feel you need, but if you are concerned about your appearance as you age you will find these solutions can dramatically improve your appearance and give you back your youthful glow.
