Anti-ageing treatments – What are your options part.2

Laser skin resurfacing
The word laser is an acronym for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. Laser treatment can be used for skin ageing and wrinkles. As light stimulates the capillary level, this  improves the circulation. Acne and cellulite also respond well to laser treatment.

Botox treatments
Botox works by paralysing muscles located at the site where it is injected, thus reducing lines and wrinkles. It is often used to treat frown lines and crows feet. the effects can last from 3-6 months. The long term affect are yet unknown.

Collagen Treatments
Collagen is a protein that is found in tendons ,bone and skin. It is said that the skin cannot absorb artificial collagen.
However one collagen treatment that is temporarily effective is CRT Collagen Replacement Therapy. This involves collagen being injected directly into the skin to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Collagen injections to lips are very common, yet can still go wrong.

Cosmetic surgery
Surgery is an invasive treatment and carries all the risks of a operation. However it is considered to be one of the most effective ways of looking younger. Your skin can be tightened and lines significantly reduced. There is a danger of the skin looking to tight and looking very unnatural.

Any sort of treatment should only be cared out by a trained professional. Any treatment should only be considered after a great deal of research and thought.

I think there is so much emphasis on looking younger today. Getting older is nothing to ashamed of and it happens to everyone. I personally think lines and imperfections make us all unique and beautiful. However if you are unhappy with the appearance of your skin. Only undergo any treatment if its what you want. Don’t feel pressured by society or other people.

Lots of Love,
