Thanks to the advancement of technology, there are an endless amount of anti-aging treatments out there. However, more often than not these treatments aren’t as effective as we would like them to be. Not to mention that these treatments and products can be pretty costly.
But don’t worry, there are plenty of safe and effective anti-aging treatments out there that will leave your skin feeling healthy and happy. These treatments not only help tighten and lift your skin, but also help restore your skins natural glow.
So what are some common signs of aging and what causes them? What facial treatments can help reverse and prevent these signs of aging?
1. What Causes Sagging Skin?
We know that as we age, our skin starts to sag, but what causes it? Well, as you age, your skin’s ability to repair itself and remain plump and tight diminishes. This is due to dwindling supplies of collagen and elastin proteins. As these essential proteins decrease, muscle tone in your face is affected.
When your body’s ability to produce collagen decreases, your skin starts to sag and wrinkles and fine lines may begin to appear. Although there isn’t a way to reverse the effects of aging completely, there are preventative measures you can take to help your skin combat aging.
In recent years, Radiofrequency (RF) has become one of the most popular anti-aging and skin tightening methods. First, let’s go over how RF works and some of the specific benefits that it has to offer.
The main goal of RF is to stimulate the production of collagen. As mentioned above, collagen is crucial when it comes to preventing and reversing the signs of aging. RF energy heats the collagen under the skin’s surface, causing it to contract and to also create more collagen naturally.
Rf is great for targeting areas like:
- Arms and legs
So what can you expect from a typical RF treatment? Usually, a machine is used to heat the skin to between 38-40 degrees with RF, which feels like a hot stone face massage. While you do feel the heat on your skin, it is very comfortable.
3. LED Light Therapy Facial
Another popular anti-aging treatment is LED Light Therapy, and for good reason! Not only does LED Light Therapy help combat signs of aging, but it can also help those with acne. But how exactly does LED therapy work?
In short, it works by emitting infrared lights in different wavelengths/ spectrum’s, which have different skin care benefits. LED therapy devices send light waves deep into the skin to trigger a natural intracellular reaction. Your skin will respond differently depending on which light is used.
For example, red light is used for anti-aging and white light works to tighten and reduce inflammation. Additionally, LED therapy is proven to have anti-aging effects as it helps to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
Some additional benefits of LED Light Therapy:
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Improves uneven skin tone and redness
- Tightens skin
Microdermabrasion is one of the easiest and most effective ways to fight the effects of aging. But how exactly does it work? Well, dead skin cells are exfoliated and vacuumed off the face with a machine that uses tips covered in tiny diamonds. Additionally, this treatment helps to increase blood flow and collagen production.
Microdermabrasion is safe, effective, and requires zero downtime. Some other benefits of microdermabrasion include:
- Treats flaky skin
- Relieves hyperpigmentation
- Treats acne scars
- Wrinkle reduction
All in all, microdermabrasion is a very versatile treatment that can not only reduce signs of aging but also restore your skins natural glow.
All in all, there are many anti-aging treatments out there. However, Radiofrequency, LED Light Therapy, and Microdermabrasion is at the top of the list.
