In 2017 Americans spent USD 8.5 billion on cosmetic procedures and an estimated 28,315 of those procedures were done in the United Kingdom.
The global anti-ageing market is only expected to continue its rapid growth. Why? Because the treatments work.
Let's face it, ageing is inescapable, but there are so many effective anti-ageing treatments that you can use to keep that process moving as slow as possible.
Read on to learn about five anti-ageing procedures that will leave your skin looking healthy and youthful.
1. Botox (Botulinum Toxin): The Most Prevalent of All Anti-Ageing Treatments
If you're looking for non-surgical, preventative anti-ageing treatments for fine lines and wrinkles, Botox could be the perfect option for you. Botox treatment works by diminishing your muscle activity and makes you look youthful and vibrant.
Typical treatment areas for Botox include frown lines, forehead lines, crow's feet (the wrinkles that surround the eye area), and the worry lines between your eyebrows.
This popular anti-ageing procedure doesn't require recovery time, and the results will last between 3 to 6 months.
Microdermabrasion treatments are done with a textured metal wand that exfoliates your skin and scrapes dead skin cells away, leaving your skin looking smooth.
This affordable procedure is similar to getting a facial scrub but lasts slightly longer. The results of a microdermabrasion treatment typically last two to three weeks.
3. Skin Peels (Chemical Peels)
If you're looking for anti-ageing treatments for the face that will not only make your skin look younger but also brighter and fresher, a chemical peel is the perfect choice. It's also a great follow up if you've already had microdermabrasion.
This cosmetic procedure involves an exfoliating chemical that is applied directly to your skin which peels off dead skin cells on your outermost skin layer. Skin peels have many uses, including removing acne scars, age spots, wrinkles, and giving you a brighter and more even look.
Redness is common after this anti-ageing treatment. You can ask your consultant how long your recovery time would be because each skin peel is different.
Our bodies naturally produce something called collagen, and that's what makes our skin firm and full. When you're younger, your body produces a great deal of collagen naturally, but it lessens as you get older. When your natural collagen production decreases, you lose volume in your face.
This is where fillers come in. Fillers help restore this volume with an injection. They're used to fill in lines and give your face a lift that typically lasts for six months to a year.
Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a noninvasive procedure that uses tiny needles to prick the skin. The purpose of the skin pricks is to kick-start your body's repair system to create new collagen and skin tissue.
Microneedling is a powerhouse when it comes to anti-ageing treatments, as it's extremely useful in treating most all skin-related issues.
The following skin issues can be addressed using microneedling:
