Gone are the days when you had to spend hundreds of dollars to purchase creams, serums, oils, and other products to reduce the signs of aging. These products contain certain chemicals that are ineffective at best, and harmful at worst.
Now, people are turning to cosmetic dermatology – a multi-billion-dollar industry helping millions of people age gracefully by keeping signs of aging at bay.
How Cosmetics Dermatology Help Achieve a Younger-Looking Skin?
Cosmetic dermatology involves the use of advanced technology to treat age spots, wrinkles, sagging skin, and other aging signs. Cosmetic dermatologists – doctors who practice cosmetic dermatology – provide a wide range of state-of-the-art cosmetic procedures/treatments to enhance and restore the beauty of your skin – and give you a youthful, vibrant look.
Following are some commonly used cosmetic dermatology treatments: BOTOX ®, Dysport®
BOTOX injections have shown outstanding results in improving the appearance of wrinkles between the eyebrows and around the eyes. BOTOX involves the use of botulinum toxin that prevent the contraction of facial muscles and slow the formation of new lines.
Dysport includes abobotulinumtoxin A and is a little different from BOTOX due to its varied amount of trace protein.
This is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based filler that plumps cheeks and lips and diminishes the tiniest face lines and wrinkles into no lines at all. This filler places volume under the skin that lost its connective tissues due to aging.
Since the nose is the first place where signs of aging start showing, these fillers can work wonders by correcting bumps and imperfections on and around the nose.
Laser Skin Tightening
With aging comes the crepey or sagging skin, which is no longer a reason to worry – thanks to laser skin tightening. Laser skin tightening uses heat to constrict collagen and make skin look more firm, tighter, and less crepey. It also stimulates the production of connective tissues like collagen and elastin in the skin, allowing the skin to stretch and snap back into place, giving it strength and structure.
Cosmetic dermatologists use several chemical peels to fight wrinkles, discoloration, acne, dull skin, and/or facial lines. These peels also remove old, damaged skin and give you healthy and younger-looking skin. Depending on your complaint, many chemicals like beta hydroxy acid, glycolic acid, carbolic acid, salicylic acids, etc., are used during chemical peels.
Fraxel® Restore Laser
Cosmetic dermatologists use the Fraxel laser as a secret weapon against aging. This technology improves skin texture and treats imperfections like pigmentation irregularities, wrinkles, and fine lines that come with aging. Fraxel laser prompts cells to produce more connective tissues like collagen and elastin and create healthy, younger-looking, vibrant skin.
