The first thing many people do when they want to look younger is an online search to see the best ways to do so. While you may find some good information, you have to be careful with what you take to be factual. There are plenty of products claiming to be the top options for looking younger, but they can’t compare to some of the proven cosmetic treatments and procedures, like laser skin resurfacing. When you’re ready to help make your skin look younger, here are the top treatments to consider.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is effective on virtually any skin type. The laser is used to create tiny spaced columns in the skin to allow it to naturally repair itself. During this process, the old skin is forced out and newer and fresher looking skin resurfaces. The actual procedure normally doesn’t take more than 30 minutes on the face, but can vary depending on the area. And with fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing, you can expect to see results within the first week and the results will continue for up to six months.
A chemical peel is another effective cosmetic treatment to make your skin look younger. This method uses an acid chemical solution, which is applied to your skin to begin an exfoliation process. The strength of the chemical peel depends on the severity of the skin damage, which will be determined by your medical professional. People will generally begin seeing their older skin peel away over the first week or so, and new skin will slowly begin to appear. Depending on the results you desire, multiple treatments may be required over the course of several months.
Basic Preventative Treatments
Sometimes you may just want to ease into developing better skin care habits before undergoing a chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing. Some of the basic preventative treatments you can do yourself is always wearing sunscreen, keeping your skin hydrated and avoiding direct sun exposure as much as possible. Combining these good habits with one of the treatments previously mentioned will not only help your skin look younger, but it will retain its youthful appearance for months, or even years.
