Improving Skin Vibrancy As We Approach Winter
As we move from one season to another we may consider skin repair. Months of UVA and UVB exposure can have a lasting effect on our skin, but there are cosmetic treatments to rectify some of the damage.
Skin repair can include many factors, but most important is ensuring skin is healthy. You can visit a dermatologist if you are specifically concerned about any changes to the skin.
On a cosmetic level, we see patients frequently who are looking to turn back the clock and hopefully lose a few years from the face. While these can’t stop the ageing process they can make a visible difference to the skin’s quality.
In most cases sun damage is the reason for premature ageing. It is avoidable by using a quality SPF sunscreen, but there are options after sun exposure that can help.
Here’s 3 effective treatments you may like to consider.
Chemical peels are widely regarded for their skin rejuvenation benefits. Coming in several strengths, they remove the outer layer of skin. This in turn promotes new skin layers to come to the surface.
Classed as a non surgical procedure, chemical peels aid skin repair actually by damaging the top layer of skin. This may sound conflicting, but in actual fact works very well.
Once the chemical peel is applied the skin will begin to shed. Depending on the type of chemical peel chosen this may be superficial or deep.
Recovery times vary depending on which chemical peel is chosen, and a full consultation is required. It’s common to combine skin peels with anti ageing treatments like dermal fillers.
Dermal Fillers And Injectables
If you’ve been left with lines and wrinkles as a result of sun damage, aid skin repair with dermal fillers. These injections can hydrate the skin and smooth lines, helping you look more youthful.
Dermal fillers are versatile and can be combined with other skin rejuvenation treatments, such as muscle relaxing injections. Again a full consultation is needed to ascertain suitability.
Lesser known but very effective for skin repair, dermabrasion is a cosmetic technique used to remove the outermost layer of skin. It helps to soften the edges of surface irregularities, making it ideal for treating sun damage.
Dermabrasion is helpful if a patient wishes to smooth out wrinkles, reduce age spots and superficial scars, and can even treat acne. There are several types of dermabrasion ranging from microdermabrasion to dermaplaning.
