Our skin covers every inch of our body, and it is also the first in line to be in contact with external factors like the sun’s UV rays, dirt, and other irritants. It helps maintain even body temperature and helps hold body fluids to keep us hydrated. It also keeps us away from the microbes that cause infections that can later affect our overall body.
Our skin enables us to detect various situations so we can react accordingly. Our sensitivity to cold or heat is due to the nerve endings that are present in the skin. Our skin plays an essential role in our body and is considered as our natural shield. That is the reason why taking care of your skin is vital in our overall health. Tensegrity Health and Aesthetics in Bangor, Maine, can help you ensure and maintain your skin’s healthy state.
Skin aging is an unavoidable occurrence, and there really is no stopping aging. However, recent developments in the aesthetic industry allowed medicines as well as procedures to assist in slowing down the effects of aging. Different factors affect how your skin age, usually described as premature aging. Our lifestyle, genes, and the environment are a few examples that can affect skin aging. These circumstances are unavoidable, but there are ways to prevent or delay its early signs.
What are the treatments that can help anti-aging?
Regular exercise, healthy food intake, and ensuring that your body is hydrated are just a few steps to maintain a youthful skin inside and out. Although these methods are effective, other types can help with aging. Here are a few treatments you can try that are safe and commended by many.
1. Botox and Dysport
Botox and Dysport are botulinum toxin injections. They are both non-surgical procedures and require no downtime recovery. They’re known to treat and prevent fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing the muscles. Both are also used to treat muscle spasm and other related medical issues. Granting that both produce the same results, they differ in the potency of trace proteins. It means that one could be more effective than the other. The treatment of Dysport is limited to glabellar lines alone. Glabellar lines are lines found between your eyebrows and are usually visible when you frown. However, only those who experience mild to severe cases are qualified for this type of treatment. On the other hand, Botox treats more parts of the face like Glabellar lines, forehead lines, laugh lines, or also called the crow’s feet located around the eyes.
2. Dermal Fillers
Dermal filler or also known as “wrinkle fillers” or “Soft tissue filler,” is a method used to add volume to your wrinkles. It is a gel-like substance injected to your face to help smoothen and soften the creases you want to address. It helps add fullness to areas that have thinned on your face and commonly found on the area of your cheeks, lips, and around the mouth. However, the type of product used varies depending on your condition, which will be assessed by the skin care professional. Available fillers are Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, Volbella, Volllure, Volume XC, Restylane Lyft, Refyne. And Defyne, which is readily accessible at Tensegrity in Bangor, Maine. Dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment and require no downtime or recovery.
3. Microneedling Collagen Induction
Microneedling Collagen Induction is a derma roller type of procedure and uses micro-fine needles to prick your skin. This kind of treatment helps grow new collagen and elastin, resulting in a firmer, more toned, smoother skin. The procedure helps stimulate your skin’s natural ability to repair or heal on its own and, in return, generates new skin cells for that youthful-looking skin. It also helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, treat various scars like acne scars and stretch marks. This type of treatment is non-invasive, thus requires minimal to zero downtime of recovery.
4. Forma radiofrequency skin tightening
If you are looking for a facelift that requires no surgical procedure, Forma radiofrequency skin tightening is your best option. This procedure comes risk-free, and you are assured of safe and worry-free treatment. Although every individual has different conditions, talking to your skin care specialist will help assess your situation and its possible effects. Forma treatments use radio-frequency technology that targets your fat cells. Its energy helps stimulate the regeneration of the collagen in your body and improves your skin’s elasticity, which aids in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps tighten your skin for a longer time. Just like the other treatments mentioned, Forma radiofrequency skin tightening is also non-invasive. It also requires minimal to zero downtime for recovery. It is also a painless procedure, making the process praised by users.
Keeping your skin at its best condition should be part of your lifestyle. Nowadays, there is a wide range of options available in different aesthetic clinics to help you delay skin aging and assist you in improving your skin cell regeneration. Laser hair removal is also an available medical procedure to remove unwanted hair from your body.
There are various ways to remove hair from your skin; techniques such as shaving, Plucking, Waxing (hot or cold), or use of creams are a few examples. However, these methods have few side effects and could be painful. Shaving causes ingrown hairs, which can, later on, cause scarring and pigmentation. Waxing is a painful technique and can cause infection or burning (for hot wax). Diolaze XL, on the other hand, can remove unwanted hair without those side effects and permanently remove unwanted hair with just a few sessions.
What is Laser hair removal or Diolaze XL?
Diolaze XL is a type of hair removal that uses laser thru wavelengths. It is considered safe and effective for all skin types and gently eliminates hair. The procedure is also painless because it has a built-in skin cooling surface to help soothe your skin. It targets the hair follicles deep down thru energy heat, which prevents future hair growth and is capable of removing the most stubborn hair.
Which parts of our body can Diolaze XL treat?
Diolaze XL is a technology capable of covering a large area of your skin, making the equipment fast and efficient in addressing hair removal in almost every part of your body. Some areas include upper arms or forearms, chest, back of your body, bikini area, chin, neck, shoulders, legs, and stomach.
Does Diolaze laser need maintenance?
The removal of unwanted hair using Diolaze Laser is not permanent, but is long lasting. It forces hair follicles to go dormant but does not destroy them. Although a touch up sessions may be needed every 6-12 depending on your hair type, to achieve the result that you want. The treatment is guaranteed effective and long-lasting because it targets the roots of the hair. The procedure only lasts for a few minutes, depending on the area coverage. It also has no downtime recovery, and you can already notice the results right after.
Prevention is better than cure, and our skin needs pampering too. Ensuring that our skin gets the optimum care it deserves, benefits our overall health condition. Anti-aging skin care treatments and Diolaze laser hair removal are just a few ways to care for our skin, and Tensegrity Health and Aesthetics in Bangor, Maine, can help you with your skincare needs.
