For centuries, mankind has been on a mission to find the fountain of youth. Why? Because who doesn’t want to look young forever? Unfortunately, the fountain of youth has never been found, so we’ve relied on biological science to create the next best thing. Over the years, technology and advances in medicine have allowed us to not only turn back the hands of time but to help us achieve flawless skin. These treatments have been a great help in giving patients a huge boost to their confidence. That’s why we’ve decided to put together this list of the best cosmetic treatments that are sure to enhance your self-esteem.
1) Chemical Peels for Flawless Skin
Chemical peels may be the best all-around solution for flawless skin. Imagine looking in the mirror and not seeing a single blemish, bump, blackhead, whitehead, or acne scar. With routine chemical peel treatment, this can be possible. During this treatment, a chemical compound made of various acids and other ingredients is evenly applied to the face then washed off. Over the next few days, the chemical reaction will begin to appear as the top layer of your skin slowly peels away. Once all of the treated skin has sloughed away, you’ll be left with blemish-free, spotless skin.
2) Dermal Fillers for Reduced Wrinkles
Many people rely on wrinkle creams to try to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Unfortunately, many of them do not work, and those that do take months to achieve results. Dermal fillers can achieve the same look instantly. Typically filled with hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers are injections that are administered to problem areas like the nose area, corners of the mouth, forehead, and more. The substance fills the injected area, pushing out any wrinkles and fine lines. Results are immediate and can last up to two years.
3) Collagen Induction Therapy for Smooth Supple Skin
Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT is a procedure that involves a patient being pricked repeatedly but a thin narrow tool causing micro-injury and forcing collagen (a protein building block also responsible for the elasticity in our skin) to flood just below the surface of the skin. The rampant production of collagen brings back some of the elasticity and suppleness to the face, creating a smooth youthful appearance. Many patients report seeing results immediately after treatment.
4) Botox for Tighter Non-Sagging Skin
Despite popular opinion, Botox is a viable treatment option when you want tighter skin that doesn’t sag. When used responsibly, Botox seizes the tissue at the injection site causing the tissue and skin to lift and tighten. It is imperative that you find a certified dermatologist to administer the injections to achieve a natural look.
5) Laser Therapy for Discoloration Correction
For the best permanent solution to skin discoloration, laser therapy may be your best bet. This modern treatment involves a colored laser at a specified wavelength passing over the affected area. This laser light interacts with the pigmentation cells responsible for the discoloration rupturing them. Once the misbehaving cells rupture, it will leave behind the normal pigmentation cells allowing your skin to return to its natural color.
