Some things in life are unavoidable, like taxes and death row inmates going to the chamber. But some things in life you can avoid — most notably the signs of aging. And while we can’t stop time, there is a range of non-surgical treatments that can help you achieve a plump, glowy, youthful complexion. Of course, facelifts and other surgical treatments will prevent signs of aging, but these procedures are costly (and you probably don't want to go under the knife unless you absolutely have to).
So, what are the alternatives? Opting for a chemical peel, laser facial, or Microneedling are proven to help you erase lines, lift and smooth skin with minimal downtime. These clinical skincare treatments will work wonders on your complexion and have been proven to help erase the signs of aging.
Not sure which is best for your skin?
I’m breaking down all three treatments so you can decide which best fits your budget and your anti-aging regimen.
Most people hear “chemical peel” and immediately think of Samantha Jones in Sex and the City.
But, chemical peels have been around for what feels like forever. Why? Because they really work!
While they sound scary, chemical peels offer impressive anti-aging benefits and continue to be one of the most popular non-surgical treatments. The damage caused by the chemicals during the treatment prompts new collagen production and stimulates cell turnover, which results in firmer, more elastic skin.
The best part is that chemical peels come in different strengths, so no matter your skin type, you can find a peel that is suitable for your skin.
The most effective type of chemical peel for anti-aging is a TCA peel. TCA peels can penetrate deep into the dermis layer to improve elasticity and collagen production. A series of TCA peels will revitalize your skin, leaving you with a baby soft, firm, glowing complexion.
A laser facial sounds like something out of Star Trek, but actually, it’s totally safe—and effective! Laser facials involve the use of short, concentrated pulses of intense light that penetrate deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production and elastin, revealing a fresh, smooth and ultra-rejuvenated complexion.
Laser facials can benefit any skin type, and they are safe to use on everything from acne scars and tattoos to hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles. Laser facials are perfect for lifting sagging skin and diminishing fine lines on your face, neck, décolletage, hands, or anywhere else on your body with visible signs of aging.
If that isn’t convincing enough, laser facials are also proven to minimize redness from rosacea; treat melasma (brown spots); increase elasticity, and boost your natural glow.
There are several options when it comes to laser facials. Your licensed aesthetician will help determine which is right for you depending on your goals and skin type.
For the greatest results, it is typically recommended to get regular laser facials every 6 months following your initial treatment.
As you get older, your skin loses elasticity and collagen, which makes it harder to maintain a smooth, firm texture. Microneedling creates small pinpricks on the surface of your skin that stimulate your body’s healing process, triggering new cell growth and collagen production. Additional benefits of Microneedling include an improvement in tone and texture of your skin as well as a reduction in pore size. The results can be seen immediately following treatment but continue to improve over time as new collagen forms.
Want to Kick It Up a Notch?
Try pairing Microneedling with other skin treatments like Radiofrequency and JetPeel facials to achieve faster, more dramatic results. Microneedling can also be used on its own as a powerful anti-aging treatment - with long-term results.
