Skin Care Treatment For Your 30's

Skin Care Treatment

As you enter your thirties, the collagen that kept your skin smooth and wrinkle free begins to break down. The skin loses some of its flexibility and the youthful glow that you took for granted in your teens and twenties begins to fade. Fortunately there are several non-invasive procedures that can return the supple smooth skin you’ve always enjoyed.

Microdermabrasion

While microdermabrasion may sound harsh, it’s actually a very gentle procedure that combines an exfoliating process with stimulation that helps encourage the skin to build new stores of collagen. Exfoliating crystals are streamed over the surface of the skin, gently removing dead skin cells that mask the skin’s natural glow. The machine then suctions the crystals back up, along with the exfoliated skin. The skin is left feeling smooth and rejuvenated. There is no down time associated with microdermabrasion, making it a convenient option.

Dermaplaning

Like microdermabrasion, dermaplaning refreshes the surface of the skin by gently removing dead skin cells. It is well suited to dryer skin and for removing “peach fuzz.” It leaves behind a smooth, flawless surface that more readily absorbs lotions and skin products. Dermaplaning is sometimes used to prepare for other procedures like laser treatments and chemical peels. The procedure involves using a very-sharp blade to gently scrape away the dead skin cells, leaving behind a fresh, clean looking surface.

Botox

As skin loses some of its elasticity, the tiny muscles under the skin stretch it into permanent lines and wrinkles. Botox addresses the problem at the source by blocking the signals nerves send to the muscles, causing them to contract. The treatment leaves skin looking smoother and fuller, and helps ease the look of crows’ feet and other fine lines around the eyes, mouth, and forehead.
