Non-surgical anti-aging treatments may sound like something out of a science fiction magazine, but they are here, and they work. Many day spas offer a variety of these kinds of treatments that are proven to show results. You don’t need to spend a fortune, undergo the knife, or put yourself at risk for a number of potential complications to enjoy the benefits of these anti-aging procedures.
Whether you want to help reduce fine lines, smooth out your complexion, or just get younger, more radiant skin, here are some of the most popular non-surgical anti-aging treatments available on a typical day spa menu.
You may have heard about this treatment many times, and that’s because it works. A trained aesthetician cleanses the face and then using a wand with a gently rotating, abrasive disc scrubs away at the topmost layer of skin. The dead, blemished cells are sloughed away, allowing the fresh, new skin to rise to the surface.
With continued treatments over an extended period of time, microdermabrasion can even reach blemishes that lie deeper within the skin, such as sun damage, age spots, and acne scars. This treatment offers softer, smother skin and a brighter completion.
There are many different types of chemical peels available that range from mild to treat just the surface to intense that reach deep into the skin to treat scars, sun damage, and wrinkles. The chemicals help strip away the dead skin and promotes growth of new, refreshed cells. For deep treatments, you may require a few weeks of recovery; however, the light and medium peels have little downtime and any residual redness can be camouflaged by makeup.
Want the benefits of a non-surgical anti-aging treatment but don’t want to use artificial substances such as Botox and facial filler? Many day spas offer fat transfer procedures.
A small portion of fat is taken from a concealable area such as your inner or outer thigh and is then transferred to another part of your body or face to fill out hollow areas or deep furrows. It is commonly used under the eyes, in the cheek area, on the lips, on the jaw line and between the brows. You can naturally plump and rejuvenate your face with your own, natural fat.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
There are many different kinds of lasers and treatments which can perform a wide variety of non-surgical anti-ageing treatments. Most are targeted to treat such problems as spider veins, fine lines, uneven skin tone, acne scars, and sun damage. Bright light breaks up the skin cells to allow new growth. The results of laser treatment can last for many years.
There are many new facial products that are made with groundbreaking technology and ingredients. These products can help diminish the appearance of age spots and fine lines while smoothing out the complexion’s tone and texture.
Many can even help prevent the onslaught of wrinkles and other aging problems. A qualified aesthetician can help you choose from a range of products to find the right treatment for your specific problem.
