Anti-aging treatments: with and without surgery

The skin is undoubtedly a reflection of our life and our history. Scars, stretch marks, the passage of time, sun spots … are just some of the characteristics that, with the passage of time, appear and are accentuated demanding a series of care different from those we apply at twenty or thirty years of age. .

Anti-aging treatments can be a good way to correct some of these blemishes and achieve healthier, smoother, and younger-looking skin.

This is what a mature skin looks like

Factors such as hormonal changes, continuous exposure to the sun, lack of sleep, stress, alcohol or sedentary lifestyle are responsible for modifying the characteristics of our dermis, especially after the age of 35, because at that time they begin to manifest signs of mature skin, such as: dryness and dehydration, sagging and lack of firmness, more pronounced wrinkles, especially in fine lines, age or sun spots and more open pores.

In order to meet the needs of our skin, we must look for products specifically designed for the area and that take into account all these factors.

Basic care of mature skin

A good routine of hygiene and daily hydration are key. These are the essential steps that we must take into account:

1- Clean every morning with a mild facial soap formulated for sensitive skin. This will help us to eliminate the fat that our skin produces as a result of the regeneration of the dermis at night.

2- Apply a toner to calm the skin after cleansing.

3- Choose a good serum (with a higher concentration of ingredients and therefore indicated for dry skin) and apply it all over the face.

4- Include in our routine anti-aging products such as the eye contour and an anti-wrinkle cream that contains active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid.

In addition to these basic cares, there are a series of specific treatments, with and without surgery, that can help us make our skin look healthy, smooth and hydrated again.

Main anti-aging treatments without surgery

  1. Injectable treatments: such as botox or hyaluronic acid, they undoubtedly represent one of the most popular options. The first is used especially in the treatment of localized wrinkles, the second to restore luminosity to the skin, making it smoother.

  2. LED light therapy: Used both to fight against the signs of aging and to eliminate problems such as sun spots or acne marks, photodynamic therapy offers several possibilities depending on the type that is applied. While some tone the walls of the capillaries, others stimulate collagen production and cell renewal.

    Peeling: Another of the most common options is the peeling, a procedure that aims to remove dead skin cells to activate circulation and moisture and make the skin smoother and brighter.

  1. PRP: Platelet Rich Plasma treatment is another of the most innovative and effective. Basically, it consists of using a biological substance that is obtained with our own blood, with the aim of making the skin smoother and brighter.

Anti-aging treatments with surgery

  1. Facelift:It is undoubtedly the best known anti-aging surgery. Performed on the double chin, neck or face, the procedure is performed with incisions in strategic areas of the area to be treated (with the aim of not leaving visible marks) and is carried out under general anesthesia.
  1. Blepharoplasty: Designed to treat the eyelids, this intervention aims to improve problems such as bags that are generated both in the upper and lower areas. Making small incisions in the inner part of the eyelid removes the excess fat. It is usually carried out under local anesthesia and has a quick recovery, in just one week.

    Tensioning wires:

    Undoubtedly, one of the most innovative treatments is that of tension threads, a procedure designed to treat wrinkles on the face that consists of inserting a needle under the skin in order to stretch the muscles and tighten the internal tissues. Performed under general anesthesia, one of its advantages is that its recovery is very fast and requires only a light rest for a few days.

    Along with these, other techniques appear every year in aesthetic and surgery centers. Remember that it is important to always go to a certified professional to request information in this regard.
