With aging, everyone experiences changes in the body, especially your skin and appearance. It’s hard to come to terms with how one’s skin looks at an older age. It takes adjustment to think positively about wrinkles, sagging, and age spots.
Even though you can’t stop the clock, there are ways to prevent signs of aging on the skin. There are multiple options available like home remedies, clinical solutions, and anti-aging creams. The choice is yours on which prevention and reverse method to choose to keep your skin young and radiant.
Let’s have a look at some commonly used anti-aging methods.
If home remedies and anti-aging creams won’t do the work to your skin, your dermatologist might recommend you for an in-office procedure.
Here are some commonly used procedures to reverse aging signs on the skin.
Laser treatments tend to promote collagen production which is a protein that holds the skin in its structure. It does so by peeling the top layer of skin which improves the tone and texture of the skin. It might cost between $1,200 and $2,000 but the skin remains firmer for several years.
This therapy uses ultrasound waves that deeply penetrate your skin to increase the production of collagen. The ULTherapy usually targets the area under the chin, face, and neck. Some people may need only one round of it but in other cases, you might have to repeat the treatment. It usually costs around $2,000.
Almost everyone has heard of botox although they might not have gotten it done themselves. Botox is a minimally invasive injectable medication and costs around $400 per treatment. This treatment tightens the muscles in your face which makes your skin appear less wrinkled and smooth.
Compared to in-office procedures which can reverse signs of aging, home remedies mostly focus on preventing sagging skin and other signs. If you are past a certain age and wish to restore tight skin then an in-office procedure might be the answer. But it’s always best to start prevention creams when you reach early adulthood.
When we talk about anti-aging products, there are two main types such as antioxidants and cell regulators. Products with antioxidants are rich in vitamins such as C, B, and E. They work by making your skin resistant to the damaging effects of oxidative stress. They are mostly used for preventing wrinkles.
Cell regulator creams and lotions have retinoids, peptides, or growth factor ingredients. They claim to reverse the signs of aging by stimulating collagen production.
Yoga practice increases oxygen in your skin and promotes healthy-looking skin and a healthier body. But facial exercises are not very effective in reversing the wrinkles on your skin.
Wearing sunscreen daily will prevent your skin from the damaging effects of ultraviolet rays (UV). Regular use also decreases your risk of skin cancer. Make sure to apply sunscreen on your neck as well to keep your skin looking young.
