Skin undergoes a lot of damage due to exposure to various environmental factors. Use of the right beauty treatments can bring back the lost sheen and luster.
Skin, being the superficial layer of the body, suffers due to exposure to sun, pollution and extreme weather conditions. Besides these external factors, skin loses its sheen and becomes dull due to aging, inherent diseases in the body, use of medication, hormonal changes, severe mental and emotional stress and obesity. Skin rejuvenation treatments such as skin tightening or anti-aging, anti-pigmentation and peels help in bringing back the lost luster.
In the recent times, treatments have been developed that combine the effects of two or more rejuvenation treatments and offer comprehensive benefits for the skin. Given below are certain effective skin treatments that help rejuvenate your skin:
Healthy skin has the ability to shed dead skin once in every 24 hours
Sugary drinks and fatty foods lead to dullness of the skin and accelerate skin aging
The most common skin problems of the skin are wrinkles, scars, pigmentation and discoloration. These are formed due to several reasons, ranging from excessive activity of the sebaceous glands and hormonal changes in the body due to exposure to sun and radiation. Microdermabrasive treatment involves spraying the top layer of the skin; which consists of dead and scarred tissues, with miniscule crystals, thus revealing the inner blemish free layer. This treatment provides exfoliation of the skin and helps in reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Often, more than one treatment sessions are required for best results.
IPL or Intense Pulse Light Photofacial is an excellently comprehensive skin care treatment. It offers complete rejuvenation of the skin with multiple benefits such as removal of scars, shrinking pores, reducing signs of aging such as wrinkles, bringing an even tone and eliminating freckles, unsightly facial veins and brown spots. This treatment uses Intense Pulse Light and has proved to be very effective.
As the name suggests, peels are facial treatments that peel out the top layer of the skin using chemicals of varying strengths. This treatment makes the skin smooth, lustrous, younger and healthier. Peels are also a form of facial exfoliation and remove scars and signs of aging. Some of the most common forms of peels are glycolic peel, phytic peel, phenolic peel, TCA peel, Unideep peel and Obagi blue peel.
Thermage is a treatment that is essentially used for tightening aging skin. With age, collagen and hyaluronic acid deplete in the skin causing loss of elasticity, which leads to sagging and wrinkles. Thermage facial treatment tightens the skin using radiofrequency, which heats the skin from within and promotes the production of collagen. This treatment does not exfoliate.
Portrait Plasma Skin Regeneration
This facial treatment uses nitrogen plasma energy to reduce blemishes, wrinkles and sagging skin. The treatment has been found to be better than many others because it does not require use of chemicals and lasers. Recovery time is very low and the process is painless.
Skin is a major health indicator. Dull and lifeless skin often mirrors an unhealthy body. So, while it is very essential to exercise regularly and have nutritious foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals, it is also necessary to pamper the dermal layer with beauty treatments in order to keep the skin glowing.
