The latest in skin treatments for ageing skin Way to Beautiful Skin

By Skin & Hair Academy  |   July 31, 2015

Gone are the days where ageing was a one-way process. With technology in skincare having taken great strides, you really don't have to think of undergoing a painful surgery to take a few years off your skin-age. The advanced new-age skincare treatments and techniques bring about noticeable and long-lasting changes.

  • 1. Botox

    Botox involves injections of botulinum toxin into the skin that relaxes the muscles. This results in smoothening out of wrinkles and elimination of lines on the face. Creepy it may sound, but Botox has come up as the first line of treatment for wrinkles and fine lines. From smoothening of the skin to dealing with excess sweating and an overactive bladder, Botox has a number of benefits. [1]

  • 2. Chemical Peels

    Chemical peels are based on the concept that it is the outermost layer of your skin that is prone to ageing. It is argued that once this layer is removed you can get fresh and young looking skin, which anyway is lying just underneath it. And guess what, the treatment is actually effective!

    Glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicyclic acid, lactic acid, carbonic acids and sometimes many of these in combinations, there are various types of skin peels available for you, depending on your requirement and skin type.

    This treatment involves applying a chemical solution to the face, neck or hands, which causes the outer layers of the skin to peel off, in the process helping do away with spots, scars, and wrinkles. You may feel mild redness and irritation afterwards for some time, but mostly people get back to their normal activities almost immediately. [2]

  • 3. Laser Skin Resurfacing

    Laser Skin Resurfacing is a treatment for the elimination and reduction of acne, scars, wrinkles and other skin irregularities. It works by allowing the laser to vaporize dead skin cells at a surface level and reveal the new healthy skin underneath. This treatment might not give you perfect skin but it improves the appearance of your skin greatly without disturbing its natural look. [3]

  • 4. Micro Dermabrasion:

    Micro Dermabrasion is a treatment involving the application of tiny grains to your skin that abrades the surface layer of the epidermis with the help of professionally handled advanced tools. This is often used to treat blemishes, birthmarks, scars, acne and other skin irregularities. It is safe and works on all skin colors and types. [4]

Make sure you get the treatments done by certified skincare professionals Take your time and go for a consultation to choose which treatments work best for you and your skin type!

Dear pravin, to manage oily skin, the best solution is to wash it frequently with water. this will also keep the pores of your skin clean and reduce the chances of pimples and blemishes. along with this, avoid oily and fried foods and do not touch your face, especially pimples often. this spreads infection and may lead to more pimples and leave behind scars. we are not sure what you mean by black skin. if it's about black patches or areas on skin surface, please consult a dermatologist.

Hello, burned skin can be repaired with cosmetic surgery. if your burn marks are severe, you may have to undergo re-constructive surgery. we advise you to get yourself examined by plastic surgeon who will be in a better position to address your concern.

Hello! red rashes after waxing are the result of an inflammation of the hair follicles. to prevent them next time, take a warm shower before you wax. it will open the spores, soften the skin and allow hair come out easy. and when you get red rashes after waxing, apply ice on it to soothe irritation. thanks for contacting skin and hair academy!
