As there are more and more beauty & anti-aging treatments and cosmetic procedures to meet increased demand, choosing the right method for you can be overwhelming. To learn about the top five anti-aging skin treatments, read on in this guide from Anne Arundel ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery in Maryland.
1. Facial Treatments
Facial treatments clean, exfoliate and nourish your skin. Facials are one of the most common spa treatments. When clients get facials regularly, they can drastically improve the appearance of their skin and minimize signs of aging. There are different variations of facials available to address a variety of skin concerns. These include:
- Skinwave Hydrogen Treatment: This is a hydrogen-based facial that hydrates the skin while reducing signs of aging.
- Microdermabrasion: Diamond-peel microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin resurfacing procedure that uses laser-cut diamond tips to decrease dead skin cells and energizes the production of skin cells.
- Fire & Ice Facial: A multi-step facial treatment that adds to the hydration of the skin.
- Chemical Peel: This treatment uses exfoliating chemical solutions to safely remove the damaged outer layers of your skin.
2. Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser resurfacing is a facial rejuvenation procedure that uses a laser to better the skin’s appearance and treat small facial flaws. Laser treatments work by using rays of light to remove damaged skin one layer at a time while encouraging the growth of new collagen. Laser skin resurfacing can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the treatment area. Laser resurfacing treatment yields both short-term and long-term results. Right after your treatment, you will notice that your skin is softer, brighter, and more even-toned. Within the next months, you will notice even more improvement as the underlying layers of skin produce more collagen.
3. RF Microneedling
RF Microneedling creates controlled minor skin injuries in order to stimulate the growth of new skin and the production of collagen. Microneedling uses an instrument with small needles to create these minor injuries in the skin. When small needles are used alongside radiofrequency waves, the treatment creates more drastic results. RF Microneedling leaves your skin feeling strong and smooth. Multiple treatments about 6 weeks apart may be recommended for optimal results.
4. Injectable Fillers
Dermal fillers are a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that can restore volume to the face, alter the jawline, and soften scars and wrinkles. Fillers remain one of the most in-demand cosmetic procedures because of the quick results, low risks, and minimal downtime. Different dermal fillers have different formulas and thickness and offer benefits that last for different durations. One session of injectable fillers can take up to an hour to perform, depending on the targeted area and treatment plan. Depending on the type of injectable filler used, the results may last as long as 2 years.
5. Anti-Aging Botox Injections
Botox is one of the most common aesthetic treatments in the United States. Botox works by blocking the nerve signals and temporarily weakening the muscles in the injected area, and having the effect of relaxing wrinkles and lines. Botox is effective at reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles when administered by an experienced team. Botox injections can be safely combined with other non-surgical treatments, like dermal fillers, chemical peels, and laser treatments, depending on your aesthetic goals. Botox is usually effective for 3-4 months.
