We all knew that eventually we’d be getting facial wrinkles. But what about red splotches, brown patches, and uneven skin texture? That we didn’t expect necessarily. Yet as we age, all of these facial changes seem to creep in more and more. They happen at different times, sometimes seemingly suddenly. Like the day you discovered not one, but TWO new wrinkles on your forehead, and a brown splotch on the side of your right cheek – remember that? Shock. Dismay. Denial. Is this really happening? Am I really getting older?
Thankfully, there are several solutions for restoring the smoother look of our youth to our faces. Here is the low-down on solutions for a younger appearance, namely via Botox, Juvederm, or laser remedies.
Advantages: Low risk, effective procedure which takes only a few minutes.
Timeframe: Short-term solution – lasts 3-4 months.
Advantages: Very low risk, effective procedure.
Timeframe: Lasts up to a year.
Laser Genesis: For Wrinkles, Large Pores, Skin Texture, Redness, Skin Damage & Scars
Laser Genesis works using laser heat that regenerates collagen in the skin. By gliding the warmth of the laser just 1/2 inch over the skin, this treatment is even described as relaxing and therapeutic. Results are cumulative – at first subtle, becoming more prominent after a few treatments.
Advantage: Treatment is pleasant.
Timeframe: Varies. Can be ever-lasting with a booster every 6-12 months. Results are enhanced with healthy lifestyle – no smoking, nutrition, enough sleep, and skin-protected skin.
Laser Limelight: For Pigmentation, Redness, and Sun Damage
Sometimes called photo-rejuvenation, laser limelight uses light pulses to heat top-layer skin pigments, promoting a more even skin tone. The pulses feel a bit like a short sting, and result in scars which fall off within a couple of weeks.
Advantage: Long-lasting with once/year maintenance treatments.
How we look affects how we feel about ourselves, and once our faces change, we might feel like our identities change, too. If we can keep ourselves looking as youthful as possible, we too feel more youthful. At the same time, not every facial skin treatment is for everyone, nor every situation.
