The flaming summer is almost here! And with the arrival of this season, not only do we tend to experience weather change, but also our skin throughout this period starts needing protection more and more every day.
Fortunately, now people acknowledge the importance of skincare and are trying to do whatever possible to have glowing and healthy skin, especially through the summer. And for all of those who are not ready yet for an extended cosmetic surgery or endless injections to reach their desired skin results, we have you covered
Try Chemical Peels
Also known as chemexfoliation, the chemical peel is a skin treatment that initially exfoliates the top layers of the skin (the epidermis) by reaching down the dermal layer.
The prior reason why this treatment is so recommended and successful is that chemical peels tend to remove and kill all of your dead cells and replace them with reborn and youthful cells instead. In this case, you give your skin the youthful glow and the refreshing feeling that the dead cells on the upper layer of your skin have been preventing for a while.
As a non-invasive treatment, chemical peels take a short time as a process, and the results can be seen pretty soon as well!
As a treatment, chemical peels can take from 15 minutes to even 4 hours per session, depending on the skin type or the outcome you are craving from the treatments. However, the healing process does not take longer than a week usually.
As previously mentioned, the prior aim of chemical peels is exfoliating the skin and replacing the dead cells with new and refreshed ones.
Even by just peeling away from your skin’s dead cells, you achieve smoother skin and a youth-looking appearance, though these are not the only benefits this treatment has.
Chemical peels tend to smooth current lines or wrinkles and also minimize the appearance of scars or dark spots our skin may hold.
Fraxel for Sun Damage
Another amazing, non-invasive treatment for bringing your smooth and joyful skin back is the Fraxel Laser Treatment.
Usually, people with sun damages, acne scarring, and hyperpigmentation are the most ideal type for the Fraxel Laser Treatment. This treatment can significantly improve your skin glow by erasing any sun damage, dark spots, wrinkles, or any areas of hyperpigmentation.
This procedure requires very little downtime, usually, a session takes 30 to 60 minutes and the results are fascinatingly quick.
The way this treatment works is pretty simple: the energy which comes from these lasers creates a tiny “column of thermal destruction” in the skin surface to stimulate and vitalize the growth of new, healthy skin cells and replace the old and damaged ones.
Once the treatment is over, patients might expect their skin to be recovered in approximately a week. Right after the procedure, the skin tends to feel irritated or shallow but this usually takes only a couple of hours.
Relying on the level of the treatment that you have applied, tissues may initially start to take a ‘bronze’ kind of appearance in the first number of weeks. By the time that the old skin is sloughed away, making way for the fresh, new tissue, the treated area may become dry and red.
In just a couple of days, patients might expect to see their new healthier skin appear. Over a total of three to six months, as the deep dermal tissues have already healed and the body’s creation of collagen is constantly increasing, the appearance will constantly improve, giving the desired skin glow that you have requested.
Microdermabrasion for Healthy Skin
Microdermabrasion is also a non-invasive procedure, created to immediately restore a healthy appearance to your current skin.
Microdermabrasion is considered a minimally invasive procedure that tends to renew the general skin tone and texture. This treatment can improve the appearance of any sun damage, wrinkles or acne, age spots, and other skin-related concerns and conditions.
As a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure, patients that would like to apply this treatment will not need to use anesthesia or a numbing agent for this treatment. The procedure might take about 45 minutes on average and is not always necessary for further sessions at times.
It starts initially with the cleansing of the skin to remove any makeup or other extraneous matter. After the cleaning process, natural diamond chips, sodium bicarbonate, or sodium chloride are sprayed over the skin for the skin to be treated. They may be sprayed against the skin surface in the form of minute crystals from a handheld sprayer, while a small vacuum constantly removes the dead loosened skin cells with the used chips.
Just by imagining having some crystals crashing onto your skin, or having a diamond-tipped stuck across your face may seem brutal, it is not as bad as you think.
Most patients reply by saying that the procedure is not hurtful at all. Others may describe it as a stony or rocky facial massage and they tend to feel just minor tugging on the skin.
However, you don’t have to worry. Microdermabrasion works on just the surface layers of the skin, so the procedure itself is meant to not be hurtful.
Advice Before Having any Non-Invasive Work Done
It is mostly recommended that before any non-invasive treatment, to be consulted with a dermatological doctor, explaining your skin type and the outcome required from the treatment for the professional consultants to suggest the perfect treatment for your condition.
In addition, you can provide your consultant the skincare products you are currently using to find out if any of those products are constantly damaging your skin without your knowledge.
