If you're concerned about your facial skin showing signs of aging, it's time to consider anti-aging treatments. You can get aggressive facial treatments periodically that remove the top layer of skin, or you can opt for more gentle anti-aging facials you can have done frequently. If you don't want downtime due to recovery, then anti-aging facials could be what you need. Here's a look at what these facials might entail.
Cleaning Your Skin
Most spa facial treatments start by cleaning your skin to get rid of oil, dirt, and grime. This helps serums be absorbed better, and it allows the doctor or esthetician to observe the condition of your skin. However, it's a good idea to wait until you've had your spa appointment before you apply cosmetics since those need to come off anyway. Ask the spa if you can still apply sunscreen so your skin is protected until you have your appointment.
Exfoliating Your Skin
There are several ways to exfoliate your skin. Some are more gentle than others. Your practitioner selects the method of exfoliation, taking into account what you want to achieve and how much time you want to devote to recovery. They might choose a light chemical peel, dermaplaning, microdermabrasion, or exfoliation with a water jet for a gentle experience that removes surface cells. Removing dead skin cells gives you a youthful glow. Plus, exfoliation can help with mild lines and discoloration too.
Anti-aging treatments often include delivering serums to your skin. This might be done along with microneedling. Microneedling punctures your skin with fine needles. The punctures allow the serums to be soaked up deeply by your skin so you get better results. The practitioner might apply anti-aging serums, peptides, platelet-rich plasma, or other products that stimulate skin cells, collagen, and elastin to make your skin look younger.
Triggering Skin Improvements With Devices
Treatments such as microneedling, red light therapy, and heat treatments can affect the skin deep below the surface. When collagen and elastin are stimulated by heat or light, the production of collagen increases to a level you had when you were younger. This can help reduce wrinkles, tighten skin, and make your skin firmer.
Your doctor or esthetician can help you establish a schedule for taking anti-aging treatments so you get the results you want and then maintain them. You might like to mix up the type of facials you receive so you can try more than one approach to keeping your skin looking young, glowing, and healthy.
