Everyone wants to maintain their youthful look, but as time passes, your body undergoes many distinct changes resulting in the signs of aging like fine lines, pigmented sun spots, and other distracting or dissatisfying features. This means that the right treatment for your unique concerns depend on many factors, and there’s no one right procedure to fit every person. To help you decide what can help you look younger and more alert, here are a few popular options at Glow Up Aesthetics!
Botox is a painless injectable that relaxes the muscles that cause specific wrinkles that form when you make facial expressions, such as frown lines and forehead lines. Botox is a straightforward injection that takes a few days to work and lasts for a few months before a maintenance injection is required. It gives a smooth, youthful, wrinkle-free appearance so you look more engaged, less wrinkled, and less angry.
Side effects include swelling, bruising, bleeding, and itching at the injected regions but these largely disappear within the following days or weeks.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a regenerative medicine process that uses plasma from your blood to stimulate skin cell renewal in the treated area. This medical procedure is involved in many different types of procedures, for example, combined with microneedling, PRP is gaining popularity, with celebrities like Kim Kardashian popularizing it.
To make a concentrated sample of PRP, a provider takes a sample of your blood and extracts the plasma and platelets. They then inject the solution into your skin with microneedles, encouraging collagen creation. The therapy will operate as a renewing agent for a more extended period. This process heals wrinkle lines and stimulates cell turnover as well as the production of skin-tightening proteins like collagen and elastin.
A chemical peel is a procedure that enhances and smoothens the texture of your skin. The peel removes the outermost layer of your skin and makes it look smooth, resulting in a younger look and feel. With chemical peels, you can treat acne scars, uneven pigmentation, rough skin, wrinkles, fine lines, and sunspots.
After this therapy, you can immediately resume your daily activities. However, you must refrain from wearing make-up or being exposed to the sun for two to four days allowing your skin to heal completely.
You can get this service from our trained experts and should probably avoid chemical peel DIY kits as they are likely not as effective as a professional one and could be dangerous if used improperly.
Radiofrequency Skin Tightening
Radiofrequency skin tightening is a non-invasive procedure that tightens your skin without surgery. It selectively heats the dermis, or deep layer of your skin, with energy waves and stimulates collagen formation by the heat.
A handheld gadget used for the procedure sends energy into your skin, giving it a reviving look over time due to collagen creation. The main advantages of RF therapy are skin tightening and wrinkle reduction. It can also fight sun damage and other skin concerns.
