How to Treat Skin That Looks 10 Years Older Than You

Sometimes it seems like our skin ages quicker than we do. You may feel youthful, but why are those age spots and wrinkles beginning to surface and make you look like you’re ten years older than you actually are? That’s just what happens to the skin, and some people develop older looking skin at an earlier age than others. The good news is there are some great treatment options to rejuvenate your skin to make it look younger again. Here is some information on chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing and possible home treatments to make you look and feel younger again.

Can Home Treatments Make You Look Younger?

The first thing people usually do when their skin begins to age is buy over-the-counter lotions and creams. These products may have the chemicals to lighten up some of the age spots and reduce wrinkles, but you’ll have to apply them consistently and regularly for many months to achieve the desired results. In many cases, it’s better to save your money and use it on proven effective treatments.

Laser Treatments for Age Spots and Wrinkles

One of those proven treatments for rejuvenating skin is fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing. The lasers will send short pulses of light on the top layer of the skin and just beneath the skin. The laser pulses essentially treat the aging skin by creating tiny columns in the skin. Your body will naturally repair those columns by pushing out the old and dead skin cells and replacing them with newer and fresher skin. The result of laser skin resurfacing is skin with a smoother texture and a more youthful appearance.

Effectiveness of Chemical Peel Treatments

There are many chemical peel benefits, and one of those benefits is making you look younger. It works by applying an acid chemical solution to the skin to cause an exfoliation process to begin. Over the course of a few days, the chemical solution will begin peeling off, and layers of your skin will come with it. Once the old skin is peeled off, you’ll be left with healthier and more youthful looking skin.
