Facial Skin Looking Dull? 2 Rejuvenation Treatments To Brighten You Up

If you look in the mirror and see dull-looking skin this can make you feel bad. You can use makeup to help you look better but rejuvenating your skin works even better. Below are two rejuvenation treatments you can choose from so your skin will look much brighter. 

Laser Skin Resurfacing

One rejuvenation treatment is called laser skin resurfacing. This treatment also deals with other skin problems, such as age spots, acne scarring, wrinkles, rosacea, and more. 

There are different types of lasers that can be used for this treatment. There is a fully ablative laser that will brighten up your skin and remove wrinkles, improve elasticity, and tighten droopy skin. A cosmetic surgeon will do this type of treatment in a hospital setting. This is because the laser removes deep layers of your skin. This also takes a lot of time to completely heal but once healed the treatment will last for many years. 

There is also a laser known as Fraxel non-ablative. This type of treatment removes the top layer of your skin only known as the epidermis. This will cause new skin to grow, making your skin look much better. This treatment can be done in a dermatologist's office. There is much less downtime when compared to a fully ablative laser, but the results will not last as long. 

Chemical Peels

Another treatment that will rejuvenate your skin is known as a chemical peel. This will not only brighten your skin but helps to treat age spots, discoloration, superficial scarring, and wrinkles. An acid solution is wiped on your face which causes skin cells to dissolve revealing new skin. There are different strengths in the acid solutions. What is chosen depends on how deep the solution needs to penetrate your skin. For example, for deep scars or wrinkles, the dermatologist may choose a much stronger acid solution. After the treatment collagen will start to regrow causing much younger-looking skin. 

The doctor will first clean your skin before they start the treatment. The doctor then applies the solution to your face. This may feel warm or hot but generally goes away within a few minutes. Your skin may then start to sting a little. The doctor may apply a cool compress to your face to help with the stinging. The doctor then washes off the chemical solution from your face.

There are other types of skin rejuvenation treatments, such as Botox, Microneedling, and derma fillers. 

About Me

Sprucing Up My Skin

After participating in a study abroad program for six months in a third-world area, I realized that my skin had really taken a hit. It was sun damaged, dull-looking, and incredibly weathered. I knew that I needed to spend some time sprucing it up, so I met with a dermatologist. The doctor was really nice, and he talked with me about all of the options that might work well for me. I ended up getting a mild skin peel, and then treating my skin with gentle moisturizers. It really made me feel confident after returning home. This blog is all about skin care that really works.
