Six Effective Skin Treatments for a Beautiful Skin

It may surprise many that the skin is the largest organ of the human body having a total surface area of nearly 22 square feet. Being the first layer of defense of our body, it provides us protection against microbes and other external elements. At the same time, it permits the sensations of touch, heat, and cold, and helps regulate body temperature.

However, doing so much makes it vulnerable to a number of problems including different types of infections, diseases and disorders.  Common skin disorders include   acne and Inflammatory lesions, scars, pigmentation and age-related problems like lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.

The good news is that many of the skin problems can be treated or corrected. While healthy diet, regular exercising and cleansing is effective for maintaining healthy skin, therapeutic and cosmetic procedures may be required to take care of certain skin-related problems.

Here are a few skin treatment techniques that can help you have a beautiful and ageless skin.

 

  1. Chemical Peel

Chemical Peel is a type of skin treatment used to treat acne scars, wrinkles, age spots, rough skin, and freckles. In this treatment procedure, a particular chemical solution is applied to improve the traces of damaged skin. Chemical peels including mild, medium depth and deep peels are an effective skin treatment for improving a number of skin problems.

Medium Peels

Trichloroacetic acid

Deep Peels

Treats wrinkles and deeper scars

 

Deep peels produce best results lasting up to 10 years among the three; however the recovery may take longer in deep peels than the other two types and some preprocedure skin preparation is needed.

 

  1. Botulinum toxin Injections

Botox is a very common skin treatment technique used to correct age-related lines and wrinkles on the face. The procedure involves the using minute quantities of the toxin that causes botulism. In this procedure, a very thin needle is used to inject small doses of Botox into the face muscles, which weakens the muscles that are targeted.

Doctors ensure that only muscles in a specific region are targeted and the surrounding skin isn’t affected. The dose and the number of injections strictly depend on how severe the wrinkles are. The whole procedure may take from a few minutes to half an hour. No anesthesia is required but a cold pack or device cooling the skin may be of help. No recovery time is required and the results take three to seven days. The results may last up to five months. 

  1. Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers involve injecting fillers into the skin in order to plump up lips or cheeks and also give a lifted look to the face and fill deep creases and wrinkles.  Hand rejuvenation can also be done using the same fillers.   The most common fillers used today are hyaluronic acid-based fillers. These fillers have been shown to be very safe when the procedure is performed by experienced doctors and the results may last up to two years.

  1. Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing refers to the use of short, pulsating beams of light intended to treat uneven skin tone, age spots, wrinkles, and scars. While it eliminates the outer layer of skin, it heats up deeper layers, thereby triggering the production of collagen. Collagen is a protein that helps the skin to appear firmer and smoother. The most popular resurfacing Lasers are fractionated Carbon dioxide and Erbium lasers which are much safer than older lasers.

  1. Dermabrasion

A surgical procedure, Dermabrasion helps treat wrinkles and scars. The procedure requires a specialized plastic surgeon to perform it as patients need a local aesthetic to numb the skin and the depth of dermabrasion has to be very precise. The procedure involves the use of a device like a rotating device to scrape away the top layer of skin. The severity of the skin problems defines the depth of the procedure. Treatment of deep scars or wrinkles may need your doctor to perform the procedure in stages.

  1. Laser Hair Removal

This is generally a safe common procedure that can be applied to any part of the body, including the face. However, it works best on light skin and dark hair as lighter skin allows more light into the hair follicle while darker hair absorbs extra laser light. Darker skin needs to be treated more carefully to get the best results possible without side effects.
