Fighting the signs of aging has become much easier in the last few decades. Here are some of the best anti-aging treatments for mature skin that you can try.
A chemical peel helps remove the outer layers of the skin to remove mild acne scars, age spots, and more to promote the growth of new, smooth, evenly colored skin. Peels range in level from superficial to medium and deep treatments that a dermatologist must perform. Once you’ve gotten a chemical peel, allow the skin to heal for a week or two.
Retinoids, often derived from vitamin A, are over-the-counter products that can help fight wrinkles and fine lines. If you’re looking for a topical retinoid, look for retinol in the list of ingredients. They increase collagen production in the skin, stimulate the production of new blood cells to improve color, fade dark spots, and soften rough skin patches.
Microneedling involves a minimally invasive procedure using thin needles to make tiny holes in the top layer of the skin. The needles help stimulate your skin’s healing process, producing more elastin and collagen to firm and smooth the surface.
Some benefits of microneedling include reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the skin, brightening your skin tone, and enhancing the effectiveness of topical skin-care products. However, it’s crucial that you have multiple treatments to achieve the results you desire.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Another effective anti-aging treatment for mature skin is laser skin resurfacing. This treatment requires a trained and certified doctor to use a specialty laser to treat narrow columns of the skin.
The laser damages the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating new skin cell growth, then peels away the damaged areas to reveal smoother, younger-looking skin. Although no recovery time is necessary, you’re likely to experience redness, peeling, scabbing, and pain right after the procedure.
Botox injections contain botulinum toxins, approved by the FDA, to help paralyze tiny facial muscles in the skin, such as crow’s feet at the outer corners of the eyes. These injections help smooth out the appearance of wrinkles and lines. While Botox treatments have no recovery time, it can take a week to see the effects, which last between three and four months.
While you take care of your body and mind, take the time to nourish your skin. Then, as you grow older, you’ll notice your hard work pay off.
