Let’s Talk Skin Health
Your skin health can easily decline with the passage of time. Sun exposure can cause discolouration, hormonal changes can cause a loss of elasticity, and skin ailments like acne can contribute to a range of skin problems from sags to scars. That’s why it is important to know that there are anti-aging treatments available to you. Exploring all treatment options and choosing the one that works for you is the best way to get your skin looking healthier.
Treating Mild Skin Concerns Before They Become Major
One of the keys to anti-aging is to either use preventative measures to slow down the aging process or to stop and reverse signs of aging. Therefore, the best time to employ certain anti-aging techniques is when your skin concerns are still mild. For example, at the first sign of a problem you can adjust your at-home skincare routine to keep that problem in check. There are plenty of anti-aging lotions on the market today that can help you with that. Some of the best contain only natural ingredients and are rich in both vitamins and antioxidants. Ask your dermatologist for recommendations that are right for you. They can also write you a prescription if your skin issues require a stronger solution than can be obtained over the counter.
Treating Moderate Skin Concerns Clinically with Lasers
If your skin issues have progressed beyond the point where lotions can fix them, but they are still relatively moderate; lasers may be the answer to help regain your skin health. The reason there are so many pieces of dedicated lasers-equipment for sale in the skincare industry is because they have been successfully treating skin issues for many years. Unwanted body hair, mild scarring, unwanted tattoos, mild to moderate wrinkles and other concerns can be things of the past with laser treatments. However, it is important that you select the right type of laser.
Types of Lasers
All laser use heat and specific types of light to treat the skin. However, they are not all the same and do not all perform the same treatments. For example, some lasers are dedicated machines that only perform laser peels. Laser peels involve the removal of dead skin cells and other materials from the skin’s surface. Other lasers are designed for deep tissue treatments and overall revitalization of the skin. There are also several treatments that have their own unique benefits. If you choose to explore laser treatment for better skin health, it is important that you consult a clinician to find the right option for you.
Other Clinical Treatments for Mild to Moderate Skin Conditions
There are many other clinical treatments you can use if your skin issues are mild to moderate. One option is a chemical peel or microdermabrasion, which works similarly to a laser peel. All three methods are essentially designed to remove surface imperfections.
Some clinical treatments are designed for other purposes such as smoothing out wrinkles. Among them are Botox or fillers. Fillers plump up the skin by filling in sunken areas. Botox has a similar effect but accomplishes that goal by temporarily paralyzing certain muscles in the treatment area. As mentioned earlier, it is important to consult your dermatologist or clinician to help decide if such treatments are a good fit for you.
