3 Types Of Skin Rejuvenation Treatments You Can Select Depending On The Results You Want

If your skin is discolored, dull, wrinkly, or sagging, look into having a skin rejuvenation treatment. A med spa or dermatologist can provide a number of treatments to improve the appearance of your skin and make you look younger. Some treatments give immediate results, while others work gradually as they build collagen. Some treatments are more affordable than others, and some don't require any downtime. There are several options to consider. Here's a look at three of them.

1. A HydraFacial Has Immediate Results

A HydraFacial exfoliates your skin with water. A device is moved across your face that exfoliates and uses a vacuum to clean out your pores. Serums are also added that hydrate your skin, treat acne, make your skin soft and glowing, or treat wrinkles.

This skin rejuvenation treatment is popular because it is comfortable to undergo, doesn't take too long, and needs no recovery period. Plus, it immediately gives your skin a youthful, healthy glow by removing the surface layer of dead skin cells through exfoliation.

2. Microneedling Requires A Few Days Of Recovery

Microneedling is another popular skin rejuvenation treatment that provides long-term results. You may not notice the effects of microneedling right away as this treatment triggers collagen growth that slowly improves wrinkles and sagging skin.

This treatment involves piercing your skin with tiny needles to cause an injury that stimulates skin growth for healing. Serums and platelet-rich plasma can be put on your skin with the treatment so the serum is absorbed deep into your skin. Microneedling can also be combined with radiofrequency waves to administer heat deep in the skin to enhance skin tightening.

Your face will probably be red for a few days after this skin rejuvenation treatment. You may not be allowed to cover up the redness with makeup until the day after the treatment. As your skin heals, you may have some peeling and dryness to contend with.

3. Chemical Peels Require A Longer Recovery Time

Chemical peels offer good results since they cause the upper layers of skin to peel off and reveal healthy skin below. A peel helps even your skin tone, removes age spots, and makes wrinkles less visible. There are light, medium, and deep peels. A deep peel could require a couple of weeks to recover, and you may need to take pain medication since a deep peel removes deeper layers of skin.

Mild and medium peels may only need a few days of recovery time. During that time, your skin will be red, and it will eventually peel off. You might also have swelling and blisters on your skin. The mild peels are the least damaging, and you can even repeat them fairly often to maintain your results.

Taking Better Care Of Myself

After I started dating again after my wife died, I realized that women these days were looking for men that seemed to keep up their appearance. I decided that instead of using bargain-brand shampoo and hoping that my unshaved face would work for people, I needed to visit a salon and talk with them about hair and skin care. The people at the salon helped me to dye away my gray hair and taught me a few tricks for shaving more effectively. After my little touch-up, my look was complete and I was really pleased with the results. This blog is all about taking better care of yourself, even if you are a guy.
