Skin Care For The Face

If you're serious about anti-aging facial skin care, you owe it to yourself to examine all the options  While cosmetics and cosmeceuticals may seem to be the sensible solution, gradually their cost may prove prohibitive. Botox injections, chemical peels, lasers, or microdermabrasion can offer exceptional (and more instant) results that often justify the additional cost.

 Botox injections relax the muscles that produce wrinkles like the "frown lines" on your forehead. The treatment lasts 3 to 6 months, and wrinkles and lines either vanish or dramatically lessen throughout this duration. Besides frown lines, Botox is effective on crow's feet, laugh lines and forehead wrinkles. A medical doctor should administer Botox injections. After numerous treatments, some medical professionals report that the period of effectiveness is extended.

 Chemical peels can be used to to enhance skin appearance and reduce wrinkles by getting rid of one or more of the skin's outer layers. Like Botox, chemical peels are done by a medical doctor and normally include phenol, TCAs (trichloroacetic acids) or AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids). Phenol is the most effective (but more serious) of the chemical peels and offers the most dramatic outcomes. However, side effects can be severe. TCAs are the next best, however numerous treatments are normally required. AHAs are the least strong and are generally used for skin brightening and smoothing, rather than wrinkle elimination. Phenol and TCAs can eliminate wrinkles and acne, and even out complexion.

 Microdermabrasion does not need a medical doctor. It can be carried out by an experienced aesthetician. In this treatment, tiny crystals are sprayed against the face with a gadget similar to a sand blaster, producing a mild polishing action that gets rid of the dead external layer of skin on the face. Microdermabrasion is less harsh than chemical peels and works well for females with delicate skin. Treatments should be duplicated for optimum efficiency.

 While not for everyone, Botox injections, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and fillers are all legitimate methods of anti-aging facial skin care. If you want quick outcomes and are willing to spend the money, these treatments can provide substantial improvements in skin texture and appearance. There are also new laser and intense pulsed light treatments which are effective - these are best done by a cosmetic surgeon used to doing these procedures.

While many of the above procedures are worthwhile, do not forget excellent results are still attainable by using BARE SkinCare products - for a substantially cheaper cost and safer result.
