The 21st century is full of advanced technologies, and many of these advanced technologies span across a wide array of fields. When it comes to skincare, there are a number of products that are on the market today, but all aren't created equal. Everyone wants to look their best at all times, but father time has his powerful grip on everyone.
Though everyone ages at different rates, we should do our best to postpone the inevitable. This is where anti-aging products come into the picture. I can tell you for sure that these modern-day products produce much better results than past facial treatments.
Minimal Invasive or Over-The-Counter
So, which route are you willing to take to turn back the hands of time? This is the first deciding factor when choosing to go this route. If you're on somewhat of a budget, then I'd suggest using an over-the-counter product. There are numerous high-quality brands that can dramatically give your skin an overhaul.
Anti-aging products of the 21st century can come via medical-grade ingredients, or they can come via natural botanicals. On the other hand, some brands offer a combination of the two, which produces extraordinary results.
Some of the best advice that I could truly give you is to stay away from anti-aging products that are loaded with a plethora of chemical fillers. Chemical fillers can certainly help you in your quest for a younger appearance, but consistent use has been known to cause skin issues such as rash, blotchiness, acne, and uneven skin tone.
Minimal-invasive treatments consist of Botox, laser resurfacing, micro-needling, chemical peel, radiofrequency, collagen-induction therapy, facials and many more. Of course, injectables like Botox and Juvederm are fairly common, and they do a phenomenal job of decreasing wrinkles on the face.
The medical-grade solutions effectively smooth out wrinkles for immediate results. One of the hottest treatments of the 21st century is known as hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that pulls in and retains moisture. By doing so, the skin is able to retain its plump-like appearance. I like to think of this substance as the “fountain of youth molecule.” Your skin naturally produces a small amount of this substance on its own. Without hyaluronic acid, the skin will sag and wrinkles will begin to appear.
Laser resurfacing is another alternative for younger looking skin. Collagen and elastin levels are restored via light energy. This procedure is very popular with age-spot treatments because it smooths the skin and makes it tighter. Laser resurfacing also removes broken blood vessels while clearing hyperpigmentation.
This literally scratches the surface to what's available and for what can be expected. My advice to you is to perform a bit of due diligence on each product and service. Visiting a local medical-anesthetic center would also be a great idea for receiving a consultation.
