The most common and recommended solution for skin rejuvenation is skin resurfacing. So how do different skin surfacing methods benefit you? What are the facts or secrets you have to keep in mind while going for a skin resurfacing procedure? Read on.
The benefits of skin rejuvenation and skin resurfacing:
Tightens the skin and adds volume
If you suffer from wrinkles and saggy skin due to lack of elasticity, then dermal fillers can help you. It’s a fairly pain-free skin rejuvenating procedure where skin-friendly solutions are injected into the areas of the skin which need to look fuller. By adding volume to the parts missing substance, the skin naturally stretches, evening out wrinkle lines. The result is a smooth texture and well-contoured face.
Removes dark spots, blemishes and sun damage
Certain stubborn marks need an equally strong remedy. This is where chemical peels prove to be helpful. In this skin resurfacing method, safe and tested chemicals or acids are applied on the skin. The idea is to destroy the upper layers of the skin completely to allow a new and better skin layer to replace it. This way, chemical peels ensure a brighter, clearer and spot-free skin.
Reduces red and prominent veins
Varicose veins not only distort your skin tone with their reddish-blue tint but also make your skin look bumpy and deformed. To correct this, sclerotherapy can help to a certain extent. In this skin rejuvenation procedure, a chemical injected into the spider veins destroys the lining of these veins. This helps the vein to shrink and reduces its redness allowing you to wear all those dresses that you couldn’t due to the presence of varicose veins either in your arms or legs.
Removes dullness and softens your skin
Skin rejuvenation treatments like dermabrasion are useful in polishing your skin and removing dead skin cells. A machine with tiny particles attached to its tip, is propelled on your skin surface which scrapes off dirt and dead skin from the depths of the pores.
- Removes acne and other scars
Chemical peels and other less intensive methods are used for lighter scars and marks. For deeper scars and prominent wrinkles, your doctor may suggest a laser skin resurfacing. In this method laser or light beams penetrate into the skin, destroying the outer surface of the skin. This removes any flaws on the skin. The heat generated from the laser activates the inner layers of the skin and encourages the growth of collagen – the protein responsible for the regeneration of a fresh and clearer layer of skin. Another option for skin resurfacing is micro needling – minute needles create tiny holes in the skin (deliberate wounds), giving a chance for the skin to repair itself properly. In this process, new, flawless skin is developed, much similar to the case of new skin after a general wound.
Some other Secrets benefits of skin rejuvenation
Improved Skin Care Routine –
Once the skin resurfacing procedure is conducted, you will have to wash your face/skin 4 to 5 times a day with special solutions prescribed by the doctor. These solutions are scientifically well researched and tested. They are meant to nourish and protect your skin to their fullest extent. Also, for a few weeks, you will need to be mindful of not venturing out in the sun. If inevitable, you will have to use high SPF sunscreens to save your sensitive and raw skin from sun damage. You will have to abstain from makeup to prevent skin damage from harmful chemicals. All these precautions may be needed to be taken for 2 to 3 weeks and the complete recovery time on an average is 4 weeks.
Not following the precautions and post-procedure care can lead to infections, deeper and bigger scars, patchy discolourations, etc. This way, in the guise of precautions you will be providing your skin with extreme care and nourishment that is required.
Skin rejuvenation helps in treating all signs of aging on your skin, like wrinkles, fine lines, crow lines, frown lines, facial sagging and dull skin. It boosts the overall skin elasticity and works on rebuilding old, dead skin cells. Some skin treatments give a subtle lift to the skin, making it look flawless and radiant.
Many patients have shared stories of experiencing improved skin texture and in turn, improved confidence. Some people are insecure about their skin problems/issues, which restricts them from effortlessly participating in day-to-day activities. Skin rejuvenation not only addresses skin issues, it also boosts self-esteem and confidence- making one look and feel beautiful.
Always try to schedule your skin rejuvenation session at least 3 months prior to any important event. The thumb rule is to always consult plastic surgeon or cosmetologist before you decide to get skin rejuvenation done. This holds true if you are dark-skinned or have a non-elastic and excessively oily skin. Skin rejuvenation is a medical process so professional advice is a must. It’s always safer to refer to a reputed and well experienced plastic surgeon.
