Prevent Skin Aging
It’s time for some anti-aging tips from your besties at SEV Laser. We’re all about helping you feel like a star, which includes all sorts of anti-aging treatments. Your beauty and health routine can’t start or end at the MedSpa, though.
That’s why we’ve put together this comprehensive list of suggestions. In this post, we’ll explain how to prevent your skin from aging, with both things you can do at home and treatments you can try on your next visit to SEV!
Watch Your Nutrition
The biggest anti-aging treatment you could give yourself is excellent nutrition. Your body deserves quality fuel that it can then use to power and restore itself. As long as you follow good nutritional guidelines by eating lots of fruits and veggies, enough proteins, and complex carbs, it’ll set your skin up to look better.
Remember that diet is never one-size-fits-all. Consider getting checked for nutritional deficiencies and speaking to a registered dietitian, to make sure your diet is serving you.
Never Skip Sunscreen
The warmth of the sun might feel great on our skin, but its rays are also quite destructive. Sunscreen is queen when it comes to keeping the skin looking youthful, so this is one of our most important anti-aging tips. SPF is also a must for protecting you from sunburn and skin cancer, especially if you’re coming to SEV for laser hair removal treatments.
But which sunscreen should you use? Check out our post on SEV-approved sunscreens!
Use the Right Skincare
Like diet, skincare isn’t one-size-fits-all. That said, having a skincare routine that you stick to will keep your skin clean, hydrated, and strong.
At the bare minimum, we suggest using a cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen. If you want to go all out with a 10-step routine, that’s okay too! Depending on your skin type, you may benefit from including dedicated anti-aging ingredients like retinoids, vitamin C, or chemical exfoliants.
Make Sleep a Priority
Life gets so busy, and most of us aren’t getting enough sleep. However, adding another hour or two of beauty sleep every night could make a bigger difference than your most expensive face serum! Our body needs sleep in order to renew itself, and that applies to all of your organs including skin, bones, and muscles, all of which have an impact on how young you look.
Try Facial Rejuvenation Treatments
What you do every day is very important, but these professional rejuvenation treatments will give a significant boost to your daily anti-aging habits.
The best thing you can do to keep your skin looking smooth and youthful is to preserve it with treatments that stimulate collagen production. Collagen is the protein responsible for the skin’s structural integrity, so it keeps things looking tight and firm.
If your skin has already started showing loss of tone or wrinkles, collagen-stimulating anti-aging treatments can also help reverse those issues!
There are a lot of therapies that stimulate collagen, including microneedling, laser facials, and radiofrequency treatments. The best of the bunch is Morpheus8, which is a special treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency.
There are other options that are less intense. Laser skin tightening, for example, improves collagen production by gently heating the lower layers of the skin. Forma is another option that cuts out the microneedling and only stimulates the skin with radiofrequency.
Botox is like a quick wrinkle eraser and one of the easiest anti-aging solutions. It addresses dynamic wrinkles, which are the kind of wrinkles that you form when making facial expressions. It’s especially effective for wrinkles in the upper half of the face, like frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and fine lines in the corner of the eyes.
More interestingly, Botox might be able to prevent your skin from aging. A 2006 study compared wrinkles in identical twins. The study suggests that Botox can have a preventative effect because it doesn’t allow dynamic wrinkles to make an “imprint” in the skin.
Dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvéderm work double-time as anti-aging treatments.They have an immediate effect, by plumping up the skin with a hyaluronic acid gel that softens wrinkles and folds from below the skin.
A 2007 study showed that dermal fillers may also have long-term anti-aging effects! The study tested the effects of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers on dermal fibroblasts and showed that fillers could potentially boost collagen production in the skin. This means that even once the filler gets metabolized, it may still have a beneficial impact on wrinkles and fine lines.
