For some, when aging sets in, plastic surgery seems like a safe escape, but definitely not everyone will afford getting a plastic surgery. It doesn’t also work every time and it can be really difficult to know the smart option to go for- invasive or noninvasive.
Who doesn’t want to look young and attractive. You should be that and more if you want and aging shouldn’t stop that from happening, hence the anti-aging treatments. But then, you really don’t need a plastic surgery to get what exactly you want. How about you cut down expenses by going for other alternative anti-aging treatments that are cheap and effective.
Here are some options you may want to consider.
1. Chemical peel
This is an anti-aging treatment that uses chemical to destroy the uppermost layer of the skin, exposing a fresher one. Brown spots and hyper pigmentation are also peeled off, making the skin look new and spotless.
First, acid is applied to this face and this can be either glycolic, lactic, alpha or beta hydroxyl. The acid is left for a few minutes or for hours, depending on the strength of the acid used. You should notice observable results within a week, although your skin may become really sensitive afterwards, due to the exposure to chemical.
Latisse has an active ingredient known as bimatoprost, which is a prostaglandin used to control the progression of glaucoma. It also aids in growth and is an effective way to get longer and thicker eye lashes. Although effective, it has some side effects, as some patients complain of having itchy eyes and darkened pigmentation in the iris, and lash growth is visible within a month.
3. Laser resurfacing
This helps to smoothen, tone and tighten the skin, giving you that young look again. Fractional lasers treatment is done by the use of a device to deliver a laser beam divided into thousands of microscopic treatment zones and it also targets a part of the skin at a time.
It uses light energy to restore collagen and elastin by piercing into the skin’s collagen layer. It also helps to get rid of hyper pigmentation and broken blood vessels. Within one week, you should feel fresher, younger and healthier once again. However, you are likely to feel pain, depending on the level of treatment you had to go through.
The above treatments have been proven really effective, but you must be aware of their side effects and the right treatment for your skin. Visit a dermatologist to know the treatment that is best for you.
