Stop Wasting Your Time with At-Home Skin Care Hacks that Don’t Work

Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, DIYers and social media influencers fill the internet with skin care hacks every day. These hacks boast how they can reduce the signs of aging, improve skin tone and texture and even help eliminate acne. Unfortunately, many of these hacks not only don’t work, but they can also be dangerous for your skin. Instead of following the latest social media skincare trend, you are much better off turning to the professionals for the best med spa cosmetic treatments for aging skin and other concerns.

Forget the Hacks and Reduce the Signs of Aging with Pelleve® Wrinkle Reduction

Before you consider any new skincare trend, be sure to do your research. Instead of improving your skin, you could do major damage.

Your skin starts losing elasticity as early as your 20s due to decreased collagen. Loose skin contributes to wrinkles and sagging, often resulting in a tired or angry appearance. Everyone is looking for a quick fix when it comes to reducing the signs of aging, so it is no surprise that there’s a beauty hack for it. The water bottle hack uses suction and upward movement to improve blood flow and tighten the skin. Unfortunately, this doesn’t work at all and can contribute to inflammation and bruising.

If you really want to address loose skin and the signs of aging, consider proven cosmetic treatments for aging skin. Pelleve® Wrinkle Reduction is a non-invasive procedure that uses innovative radiofrequency technology to stimulate collagen production and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as deep facial creases. A single treatment takes about 30 minutes and, while you may see results after one treatment, most opt for three to five treatments spaced out every four weeks for optimal results.

Leave the Lemons for Your Tea and Improve Skin Tone with Microneedling

Lemon juice has long been promoted as a natural lightening hack when it comes to hair and skin. While the citric acid found in lemons is a component of many lightening skincare products, applying natural lemon directly to your skin is not a good idea. Lemon juice can cause acid burns, hypersensitivity to the sun and hyperpigmentation.

If you are looking to brighten your skin tone or address pigment concerns and age spots, microneedling is a much safer option. Microneedling uses microscopic needles to penetrate the skin and encourage collagen and elastin production. This helps improve skin tone, as well as treat acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles.

Give the Kids Back the Elmer’s Glue and Try Microdermabrasion

Remember your days in elementary school. No doubt you covered your hands with Elmer’s glue only to wait for it to dry and peel off. Unfortunately, that same concept is a new beauty mask idea — the glue dries and you peel away dry skin and clogged pores. Unfortunately, this can lead to hyperpigmentation, inflammation and skin infections.

To rejuvenate your face and reveal a fresh new layer of skin, consider a microdermabrasion treatment. Microdermabrasion uses microscopic crystals to gently exfoliate and remove dead skin cells, helping to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sun damage, acne and age spots.

Put Away the Irritants and Shot Glasses and Plump Up Lips with Dermal Fillers

The Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge in 2015 sparked a craze involving shot glasses for plumper lips. By placing the shot glass over your lips and sucking, the idea was to stimulate lips similar to Kylie. Unfortunately, while participants may have experienced fuller lips, many also experienced significant bruising, blisters and infections.

In other cases, people are using irritants to produce swelling of the lips. These homemade treatment options can cause burns, blisters and infections.

The fact is, achieving the same full lips as Kylie involves a simple cosmetic treatment that is safe, takes only a few minutes and produces the desired lip fullness. Dermal fillers, like JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA XC, are simple injections into the lips that help plump, define and shape, giving you beautiful, kissable lips. You can go in for a treatment during your lunch break and come out with noticeable lip fullness that can last for up to a year.
