At times, your skin can feel dry and have a dull complexion, especially during the Winter. To avoid this, you may choose to do a bit of refreshing in Spring to return the glow of your skin. There are several invasive and non-invasive procedures you can try out come spring, such as:
CO2 laser or fractional laser resurfacing is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment. Fractional laser treatment involves poking microscopic holes in your skin. The minute holes encourage the growth of new skin by stimulating collagen fibers to grow. CO2 laser treatment helps deal with sun damage and fine lines on the skin. It has a shorter downtime than other forms of laser skin treatments.
Dysport® is a neuromodulator injection. It reduces muscle activity, delaying the formation of wrinkles. It helps prevent your superimposing skin from crumpling on itself. Dysport is ideal for glabellar lines on the eyebrows and wrinkles on your neck, mouth, and forehead.
The procedure is among the cheapest non-surgical spring refresh treatments. Effects of the treatment are immediate though temporary. You may need to go for a follow-up treatment every four to five months. Dysport also has other medical advantages and can help treat medical conditions. These include cervical dystonia, axillary hyperhidrosis, and Nefertiti lift.
HydraFacial® is a non-invasive treatment that helps rejuvenate your skin. Once you get above 20 years old, your skin produces one percent less collagen each year. HydraFacial helps combat this predicament. It does this by removing dead skin and unclogging your pores.
The treatment also infuses vital nutrients like antioxidants into your skin and underlying tissues. Frequent HydraFacial treatments help restore your skin to the best it can be.
Injectable or dermal fillers help add volume to your skin quickly. Injectable fillers are ideal for restoring facial fullness lost due to age. They can help amplify various facial areas like your cheeks, lips, or chin. They contain a viscous gel that can fill in wrinkles and scars.
Some injectable fillers consist of hyaluronic acids like Restylane®. These may have similar results to Botox, though they add something more. They also add volume to the treatment area, in addition to filling the wrinkles. Fillers can help accentuate contours to some facial features. These include your lips, chin, and nose. They can also hide issues like bags under your eyes.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is among the procedures that help complete your spring refresh makeover. It is a safe and painless procedure that can help remove hair from areas you do not want them to show. It involves using a hand-held device that targets infrared light to the treatment area. The infrared light slowly heats the hair follicles, making the hair fall off naturally.
Laser hair removal is not permanent. Hence, it requires multiple treatments to ensure long-term results. The procedure is ideal for all skin types and tones. However, it is most effective in people with dark hair and light skin. Laser hair removal is convenient for any part of your body and does not depend on age or sex.
