How Cosmetic Procedures Improved My Life

The 3 Main Categories Of Facial Rejuvenation Cosmetic Treatments

Growing older is an inevitable part of life, but it can be tough when your aging appearance doesn't match up with the younger person that you still feel like inside. Fortunately, modern advances in cosmetic procedures mean that you can maintain a youthful appearance.

The face is the part of the body that most women desire to look younger, smoother and firmer. There are many different procedures available to address an aging facial appearance depending on how invasive and extensive you're willing to go. Facial rejuvenation procedures can be broadly grouped into three main categories.

1. Surface skin treatments

If you aren't prepared for an invasive style of treatment, then there are plenty of procedures that work on the surface of your skin to turn back the clock. Great results can be achieved using topical products such as acids, serums and exfoliation treatments.

Modern skin treatments also utilise the use of high tech equipment to tone, resurface and replenish the skin surface. This includes Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), lasers, microdermabrasion and micro-needling.

2. Injectable treatments

The next step up in effectiveness are the moderately more invasive injectable treatments. The most well known of these is Botox, which paralyses the muscles that cause fine lines to develop around the eyes, nose and mouth.

Dermal fillers are becoming another popular injectable treatment. This process uses a fine needle to fill areas of the face with synthetic versions of natural plumping and moisturising agents like hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers are ideal to plump up sagging areas and fill in deep crease lines around the eyes and mouth.

3. Surgical treatments

Surgical treatments are the most invasive option for facial rejuvenation. While that means they also carry a slightly higher risk of complications than less invasive treatments, they're also the most effective and long-lasting option for a refreshed and youthful appearance.

One of the most common surgical cosmetic treatments is a facelift. This involves removing some of the skin around the edge of the face and stretching the remaining skin so that it's tight and wrinkle-free. Another popular surgical treatment is an eyelid lift. This is like a mini-facelift for the eye area designed to remove creased and sagging eyelids and open up the eye area.

Before you decide what type of cosmetic treatment will be the best option for you, book a consultation with a reputable and fully licenced cosmetic clinic like Panthea Clinics. They can analyse your skin, discuss what you hope to achieve and advise you on which treatments will give you the best results.
