Aging is inevitable. As you get older, your skin will start to develop wrinkles, it will sag, and it will lose elasticity. While it is not possible to stop the aging process, there are several things you can do to give your facial skin a more youthful look.
Are you interested in reducing wrinkles or tightening your facial skin? You’re not alone. Every year, millions of Americans undergo surgical and minimally invasive facial procedures to slow down the effects of aging and give their facial skin a more vibrant appearance.
With several procedures to choose from to give your skin a more youthful look, how do you know which one is ideal for you? Keep reading to learn more about various procedures.
1. Face Lifts
Want to get rid of sagging skin? Then you should consider getting a face lift. Face lifts focus on getting rid of excess tissue. Additionally, they lift and make facial skin firmer to give it a more youthful appearance. Overall, if you’re looking to remove excess facial skin, tighten it and smooth out wrinkles, face lifts are an excellent choice. But if you’re looking to disguise wrinkles, face lifts may not be suitable for you.
On average, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), face lift surgery costs $7,467. The hefty price may be inhibiting. If you’re looking for a less costly way to give your facial skin a younger look, then you should consider Botulinum toxin injections, commonly known as Botox. Botox treatments cost far much less than face lifts, and they offer several benefits too. Botox relaxes wrinkles and frown lines. As a result, it’s excellent at reducing the appearance of both to give facial skin a more youthful appearance.
3. Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are another great way to improve the appearance of facial skin. Like Botox, chemical peel treatments are fairly inexpensive too. On average, the procedure costs $673. During the procedure, chemicals are applied to facial skin, causing it to shed and peel off. Afterward, a new and smoother layer of skin will appear. Chemical peels can address facial problems such as wrinkles, sun damage, scars, and uneven skin tone.
4. Professional Facials
If you want to give your facial skin a youthful look without the need for complex procedures, then you should consider getting a professional facial. Skincare professionals highly recommend professional facials, and some aestheticians advise that you get one every month. Facials can stimulate the production of collagen – a protein that is key to preventing skin from sagging. Additionally, they remove dead facial skin cells and moisturize and hydrate facial skin.
Dermaplaning is a facial procedure that uses a scalpel to get rid of excess skin. During the procedure, unwanted facial hair is also removed. Dermaplaning is ideal for resolving problems such as acne scars and sun-damaged skin. If you’re worried about the side effects of other cosmetic procedures, then you should consider dermaplaning. When a qualified skincare professional performs the procedure, side effects are unlikely to occur. What’s more, dermaplaning is suitable for all skin types.
While aging is not reversible, it is possible to reduce its effects on your facial skin. If you’re looking to give your face a more radiant look, consider the procedures listed above.
