3 Ways to Take Care of Your Skin in 2016
The new year is almost upon us which means that you are probably creating a list of your goals and aspirations for 2016. If you’re like many, you have felt obligated to write down something like “lose weight” or “eat healthier” as part of your resolutions, but what if we told you there were other ways to feel better about yourself? It’s a new year, it’s a new you – here are three ways to take care of your skin, so that you can look healthier and feel happier about your body.
Wrinkles can be a nuisance, especially when they seem to creep and crawl across the skin on your face. Every time you look in the mirror, you might examine those frown lines, making your brow furrow even more. With Botox, you can eliminate these lines by relaxing the muscles in your face that cause the wrinkles to occur.
Administered without anesthesia, Botox is injected into the areas of concern with a small needle. You may feel some minor discomfort, but nothing that will last long. While the results of Botox treatment can take up to a week to show their full effect, you are certain to not be disappointed with the results. After about four to six months these results may fade, but after re-treatment your muscles will eventually be trained to relax, leaving you wrinkle-free.
Similar to Botox, Dermal fillers are used to rid of wrinkles and unwanted lines in the face. While Botox relaxes muscles, Dermal fillers do exactly as they say: they fill in depressions in the face, so that you are left with a youthful, round frame. Still, you are not put under, and the procedure is as minimally invasive as possible.
As you age, the muscles and fat in your face can droop, leaving you with bags or wrinkles. Dermal fillers can replace that empty space underneath your skin, essentially plumping your face back up to a fuller shape. Oftentimes, Dermal fillers can be used to pump up the lips, but they can be used on other parts of the face, as well. There are several different types of Dermal fillers so that you can choose which of these ways to take care of your skin is best for you.
Rejuvenation with Laser Resurfacing
If you are looking for a long-term solution to your skin imperfection woes, consider laser resurfacing in order to rejuvenate the skin on your face. For those who have suffered extensive sun damage, have poor skin from diet or hereditary reasons, this type of rejuvenation might be the perfect choice for you. Additionally, this procedure can reduce the appearance of acne scars and age spots.
The lasers used in rejuvenation will cause the outermost layers of your skin to peel, leaving you with a fresh and even tone across your face. Though this sounds like it would be painful, it only brings a minor, burning sensation to your face, but it is not anything that is unbearable. After letting your skin heal completely, you will be ecstatic about the results.
