What Do Anti-Aging Treatments Include?
Anti-aging treatments of Rancho Cucamonga can run the gamut from topical creams and moisturizers to nonsurgical facelift treatments like laser treatments and chemical peels aimed at removing the upper layers of dry, dead skin and reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Anti-aging treatments vary based on your age, skin type, overall health, and your goals and expectations. Having a consultation and skin evaluation is the first step in determining the most appropriate treatment regimen for your needs.
What Happens In A Chemical Peel Procedure?
Chemical peels are offered in different strengths, depending on the level of treatment you’re seeking. The procedure is performed in the office and begins with a gentle cleansing of your skin. The solution is carefully applied and left on the skin for a specific period of time – usually just a few minutes. Once the treatment period has ended, the solution is removed and a soothing gel may be applied. Your skin may appear red for a few days, similar to the way it looks after a sunburn. Depending on the depth of the peel, you may have flaking or blistering followed by peeling. Once the old skin sloughs off, you’ll be left with smoother, more evenly-textured skin that looks younger and rejuvenated.
How are lasers used to reduce the signs of aging?
Lasers are one of the “go-to” tools for today’s anti-aging treatments, helping to resurface skin and reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles and some types of scars. Lasers can be used to treat the lower layers of the skin, stimulating responses that help promote the development of new skin as well as collagen and elastin, two critical building blocks of healthy skin. Like chemical peels, laser procedures are performed in the office and there’s no recovery time.
