The skin on your face is exposed to everything, all day, every day. Short of wearing a ski mask, you simply can’t avoid the sun, wind, pollution, and other factors that contribute to prematurely aging skin. And even if you did don the ski mask, it couldn’t save you from genetics and the laws of biology; as you age, your skin becomes less and less equipped to heal itself due to dwindling collagen production. If you look in the mirror and realize it’s becoming more difficult to ignore the signs of damage on your skin, you will be glad to know that there are many revitalization options available.
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is an incredible facial rejuvenation option because it uses nothing but your own blood to heal your skin. Your blood is drawn and spun in a high-powered centrifuge in order to separate out and concentrate the platelets, which contains potent proteins and growth factors that stimulate natural healing. When the PRP is injected back into the skin, it quickly alleviates problem areas like forehead lines, pitted scars, lax skin, stretch marks, and wrinkles.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
Rather than an injection like PRP, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) uses the principles of photorejuvenation to transform your skin. It’s a non-invasive technique that shines intense pulses of light deep into the skin. This photo-effect stimulates collagen and constricts blood vessels, which helps minimize and even reverse sun damage, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and much more. Red, blotchy skin never has to be a problem again thanks to IPL.
Microdermabrasion is a staple of the cosmetic enhancement industry, and for good reason. This simple treatment gently sands the skin to remove that thick, damaged, uneven layer of outer skin. Microdermabrasion can work wonders on light scarring, sun damage, discoloration, stretch marks, and even wrinkles and fine lines. Best of all, microdermabrasion stimulates increased collagen production, so your skin can continue to heal itself long after your treatment is completed.
With such a variety of promising options available, aging has never been more optional.
