Easy Ways to Repair and Rejuvenate Skin Before the Holidays
posted on 11/12/2010
If you spent too much time in the sun this summer or are noticing more wrinkles and lines around face and neck these days, head to the cosmetic dermatologist for a quick-fix treatment and look forward to a youthful appearance right in time for holiday season! You can reverse the signs of aging and achieve a more youthful look for those holiday events and photo sessions, and some procedures can even be performed over your lunch hour.
Talk to your cosmetic dermatologist about some of the latest options for getting rid of wrinkles, erasing sun spots and turning back the clock.
Fraxel Skin Resurfacing to Get Rid of Sun Spots
One of the best ways to get rid of freckles and sun spots after a long summer is with the Fraxel skin resurfacing procedure. Fraxel laser technology can be administered to delicate areas of the neck, face and décolleté to permanently remove scars, sun spots and other blemishes. This innovative anti-aging procedure treats only the areas of damaged skin, which is why it is called a “fractional” treatment. The lasers penetrate deep into the dermis to heat up the tissues and trigger the production of collagen. The skin begins to heal rapidly, and the result is clearer, more youthful skin and a smoother appearance.
Microdermabrasion to Get Rid of Lines and Wrinkles
If you’re noticing lines and wrinkles developing around your eyes, nose and mouth, settle in for a microdermabrasion treatment or facial. This anti-aging treatment buffs away rough skin patches and smooths out the skin to reveal the healthy layer of skin underneath. Plan to get a microdermabrasion treatment at least once per month up to a big event for best results.
Chemical Peels to Brighten and Tighten the Skin
Is your skin looking a little dull or ashy? Get a chemical peel that will exfoliate the skin at a deeper level than standard facial treatments and brighten up your look instantly. Chemical peels help to remove the top layer of dead skin and reveal the healthier, fresher-looking skin underneath. This exfoliating treatment can be combined with microdermabrasion and a regular facial for even better results. Just make sure you get the peel at least two to three weeks before a major event so that your skin has enough time to shed and rebuild itself.
If you are looking for a simple way to rejuvenate the skin before holiday season, settle in for a collagen facial at the medical spa. Collagen facials replenish the skin of lost moisture and infuse it with a dose of collagen to create a smooth, toned and firmer texture. Collagen facials can help you achieve a more youthful look after a single session, and brighten up an otherwise dull skin tone.
