FIGHTING SKIN DAMAGE

Our skin changes as we age. Over the years, it can be damaged by the weather, the sun and the environment leading to wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, and scarring. Thankfully, there are certain skin rejuvenation techniques both through professionals and at home that you can use to replenish your skin and achieve a youthful appearance.

Microdermabrasion

A popular choice today for skin rejuvenation is microdermabrasion. This is a process by which the outer layer of skin, or the epidermis, is removed by slightly abrasive tools. When this happens, the skin then heals to reveal a smooth and healthy layer thanks to the renewal of your natural collagen. This is ideal for discoloration, stretch marks, sun damage, and scarring and can be done without anesthesia or a recovery period.

Laser Treatment

A second popular treatment for revitalizing your skin is laser resurfacing. This targets sunspots, sagging, fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. The lasers focus on the damage beneath your skin in a coordinated manner to improve the elasticity and natural suppleness of your skin. Multiple types of lasers can be used to treat different conditions and may be used in one session to effectively treat your skin’s damage.

Home Remedies

There is a wealth of natural remedies you can do at home. Lemon juice and green tea are both popular due to the natural antioxidants that help replenish skin and protect it from environmental factors. Bananas can be used on dry skin to add moisture, reduce wrinkles and fine lines. These natural products can be rubbed gently onto your skin or mixed with a few other ingredients to create a mask that washes off easily.

Younger and Healthier Skin

Rejuvenation techniques can help you achieve healthier and younger looking skin by removing years of damage. Some of these techniques can even help prevent further damage from the sun and premature aging if used on a regular basis. You can add these techniques to your skincare routine for younger, healthier looking skin.
