If you haven’t been the kindest to your skin, you are not alone. Whether you spent too many hours in the tanning bed during your youth or forgot sunscreen more than once while on a beach vacation, chances are you have made a few decisions that have resulted in skin damage.
The good news is that it isn’t too late to save your skin. No matter how many years have passed or how much you love the sun, there are cosmetic treatments for skin damage that can help you revive your skin in 2020.
There is no shortage of cosmetic treatments that can help you fight back against signs of aging, most of which can be done in a simple office visit.
Too much time getting hit by UV rays can leave your skin with less elasticity, leading to fine lines and wrinkles. Nanofractional radiofrequency uses needles that are smaller than 1 millimeter to deliver multi-polar radio frequency energy and pulsed electromagnetic fields to the skin.
This generates heat and stimulates the skin to start producing more collagen and elastin. Over time, your skin should start looking more youthful. And since it is your body’s production of collagen and elastin that produces this, the look is very natural.
Dynamic Variable Depth Radiofrequency
Also known as DVD RF, it is somewhat similar to nanofractional radiofrequency. Columns of radiofrequency energy are delivered to the tissues through needles, triggering a healing response. This response results in the generation of collagen and elastin fibers. As these develop, your skin becomes firmer and more youthful, fighting signs of aging that sun damage may have caused.
Fractional CO2 uses lasers instead of needles. The fractional CO2 laser scatters the energy in the light beam it generates so that the energy spreads out evenly over the skin while still reaching deep into the tissues. The results tend to be dramatic yet natural in appearance. There is a brief recovery period after this procedure of about 3 to 5 days. However, it does well to fight signs of aging related to sun damage.
BOTOX® is an option we have all heard of, and luckily, it is great at addressing fine lines and wrinkles you may have developed as a result of too much squinting in the sun. It limits movement in targeted muscles, which makes existing lines less visible and helps to stop new ones from developing.
These fillers are ideal when skin damage has resulted in a loss of skin elasticity. There is a full range of dermal fillers available, making it easy to get the ones that work best for your needs. They work by increasing volume in the face, filling out the skin where fine lines and wrinkles are present. They also require no recovery, allowing clients to get them whenver it is most convenient.
As you can see, there are many cosmetic treatments for skin damage that can help you. Instead of regretting your past decisions, take the steps needed to change the results and achieve a more youthful look. \
