If 2021 is the year you want to start having clear and glowing skin, now is a good time. The pandemic forces many of us to stay home, which means our skin is less exposed to harmful pollution. We also have more time to sleep in and cook, which means we can choose healthier ingredients.
There is also more time to exercise and let some toxins out as we sweat and move our bodies. And last but not least, we have more opportunities to explore modern procedures and treatments that can help us achieve our picture of perfect skin. If you have never been confident about your skin, here are some recent procedures that can clear up your skin and restore its natural glow.
If you also experienced acne at some point in your life, you are one of 50 million Americans who experience it annually, which means you are not alone. Your condition is so much more common than you realize. But just because it’s common, it doesn’t mean it hasn’t been painful for the people who experienced it. It has also stolen so many people’s confidence and sense of self-worth, even those who have fully healed, as acne tend to leave marks and uneven skin tone.
The good news is that there are up-to-the-minute procedures now that can help address this specific problem. Treatments like acne scar laser procedures can help remove blemishes and scars that were left behind by acne. The best part is that when you consult with the doctors and experts, they will help you find the best possible solution for your specific skin needs because no two skin requirements are the same. If you want to remove extensive scarring or pigmented blemishes, this treatment is for you.
One of the best things you can do for your skin is to combat the early effects of aging, like saggy and dry skin. Doing these treatments will help you shave years, and even decades, off your appearance. Some anti-aging treatments include skincare products, but some mild chemical peels don’t require you to go under the knife. The technology is so updated that anti-aging treatments can produce stunning results without the pain, expenses, and downtime of more extreme and intensive procedures.
Depending on your goals, skin type, medical history, and other contributing factors, your esthetician or dermatologist will design a regimen for you that will help you achieve healthier, plumper, younger-looking skin, even after just one treatment.
Non-invasive healing technology
Another state-of-the-art non-invasive technology that can help improve your skin’s appearance and health is a therapy that is focused on high-power ultrasound, which works to warm up and heat the skin tissue at various depths, which then launches a natural healing response, which ultimately concludes in the forming of new collagen. This treatment can help enhance your skin’s elasticity and decrease the sagging not just in your face but also in your neck. It’s the ultimate facelift without having to undergo intensive surgery.
Radio-frequency and micro-needling
Yet another treatment or procedure you can explore is radio-frequency and micro-needling, which can help tighten the skin, especially for the neck. That part of our body is one of the first to give up as time goes by, and researchers across the globe are finding the best procedure to help slow down the aging process of our necks. But aside from skin tightening, this treatment can also address skin concerns like texture, acne, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and pore size.
Another area in our face that is most prone to signs of aging is our eyes and the surrounding skin, which is why plenty of treatments were developed to address this specific concern. Regenerative eye enhancements make use of masks for an indefinite amount of time. It’s a wonderful alternative to fillers because it’s much less invasive.
Some of these masks can help remove extra skin around our eyes, like wrinkles and loose skin, converting these extra tissues to gas. What is the best part? Doctors don’t even have to make incisions. The technology utilizes the body’s natural growth factor serum. This can then be used to improve dark circles, loose under-eye skin, sunken appearance, and eye bags.
During the pandemic, we need to care for ourselves in more ways than one. With other issues lingering with the threat of a virus, it’s necessary to focus on oneself. If you feel better about yourself during this crisis by improving your skin, don’t hesitate to do so. You deserve it after the past year and a half.
