Skin Treatment For Youthfulness


Apart from these ingredients to treat the surface, what are other treatments for problems under the surface of the skin?

Fillers

As the name suggests, it helps fill up fine hollowness found just below the cheekbones. One commonly used filler is Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring component of skin.

Botox

This is another popular temporary wrinkle removal technique. It works by relaxing the facial muscles that contract and cause wrinkles such as frown line between the eyebrows and crows feet.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

This technique is non-ablasive and helps to change the dermis layer of the skin without damagine the epidermis. It helps to heat up tissues and create new deposits of collagen which promote suppleness.

Radio Frequency (RF)

This latest technique tightens sagging skin without the need for surgery. It is a sophisticated treatment, which delivers a controlled amount of RF energy into the skin. This uniformly heats a large volume of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin and its underlying tissue. New collagen is then produced, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

Microdermabrasion

It is a mini procedure that involves gentle abrasion of the skin with diamond chips or aluminium oxide crystals to remove dead skin cells. It is effective in rejuvenating skin health.

Chemical Peels

Certain acids are applied on skin to remove or peer off 'old skin' and allow the skin to generate new and smooth skin.

Lasers Or light

Used to improve skin texture, skin appearance and skin tone too. In both treatments, light is used. Light is directed onto the skin and this light upon contact with the skin, is converted to heat. The heat stimulates collagen production. With this method, wrinkles are 'erased'. By using different wavelengths, lasers can remove abnormal pigments on the skin.

UVB Rays More Likely To Cause Non-Malignant Cancer

Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer, and is linked to lots of sun exposure early in life. New research suggests, however, that the risk of developing melanoma is only partially linked to ultraviolet B (UVB) light. According to the University of Texas researchers found that UVB causes many mutations in the basal and squamous cells near the skin surface - the more mutations, the higher the risk of cancer. But UVB doesn't cause many mutations in melanocytes - the skin cells that can become melanomas.
