Spa procedures that slow down the aging process
Anti-aging treatment is designed to fight wrinkles, brighten up dull skin and give you a more youthful look. Anti-aging facials can be a great way to improve your complexion and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Here are the benefits of anti-aging facial.
1. Exfoliatesthe skin at a deeper level
Most facials include basic exfoliation with a scrub, but if you need to go one level deeper, choose procedures with a facial buffing tool, a Galvanic facial scrubbing device, or a microdermabrasion treatment. Exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells to reveal the fresher, more youthful skin cells underneath. This process also helps to increase circulation to the skin’s surface, which helps with cellular renewal.
2. Moisturizes dehydrated skin
If you have very dry skin, or flaky and rough patches on the cheeks, along the jawline, and on the forehead, some anti-aging facials with the application of hyaluronic acid and emollient-rich moisturizers will helpto moisturize your skin. The procedure may also include the use of a Galvanic device, which helps to regulate the moisture level of the skin’s surface, and drives topical products deeper into the pores.
3. Slows down the aging process
If you’re noticingwrinkles andfine lines appearing around your eyes, nose and mouth, anti-aging facials that include glycolic and hyaluronic acid treatments and collagen-infused serums, can restore the skin’s firmness and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Get these facials regularly, and your skin willlook fresh, supple, smooth and young.
4. Reduces appearance of age spots or broken capillaries

These treatments can help to restore your skin at a deeper level, and will help to rejuvenate and strengthen your skin from inside out. You will need to undergo a series of these treatments to see results, but you will seesignificant changes in your skinwithin a few weeks.
5. Improves the texture and tone of your skin
Anti-aging facials can improve the texture and tone of your skin by increasing circulation to the skin’s surface, and making your skin appear smoother. Gentle massage and the application of light pressure to various parts of the face can help to contour, shape and define your facial features, and also help to create a more sculpted appearance.
6. Keeps skin looking youthful

Thesespa-procedures will leave you looking brighter, tauter, and much younger.
Thermage for skin firming
Radio-frequency wavesare the most effective fix for droopy skin, but this procedure requires some fortitude, because it burns like hell. Treatments such as Thermage work by delivering sound waves deep into the skin, causing microscopic fissures that stimulate collagen production, which in turn firms up loose and sagging areas (face, jowls, neck, knees, etc.). The results are impressive: most patients see significantly tauter skin within 6 months. The only problem is that the procedure can be hard to take, even with anesthesia. For those who can’t tolerate pain, there’s an easier alternative –the non-ablative eTwo laser, which directs a much milder combination of radio frequency and infrared-light pulses into the skin. The results are comparable to Thermage but not as painful.Specialists recommend 3 sessions spaced one month apart.
Belotero Balancefiller to diminish lines
This hyaluronic acid filler, recently approved by the FDA, can diminish the tiniest and most superficial of lines. This filler spreads out evenly instead of clumping up like other fillers, so you don’t have to inject it deep into the tissue. The small particles and malleable texture make it possible to smooth shallow lines instantly while maintaining a bump-free surface. It’s perfect for filling in fine lines around the lips and even crow’s feet. And because the needle only penetrates the skin’s top layers, there’s far less bruising involved.
A hyaluronic acid fillerto shape your nose
As we age, our nose flattens and widens. One of the quickest and easiest ways to look younger is to reshape it with a filler. A hyaluronic acid filler (Perlane, Juvéderm, Restylane) injected right into the dorsum (the bony line straight down the center) slims the nose and even corrects bumps and imperfections. Doctors can also add a tiny dose of Botox under the tip for a more youthful profile. Your nose becomes more hooked as you age, which drags down the entire face.Botox lifts it up and takes off years in about 10 minutes procedure.
Botox to relax the neck muscles
Neck muscles can start to enlarge and protrude as we age, which can result in the appearance of thick, tight cords. The muscles in the neck and the superficial muscles of the face are connected to one another. That means your neck actually pulls your face downward.But there’s an easy fix for this – you can relax the neck muscles with Botox. It softens the wrinkles, gets rid of the cords, and lifts the face. Basically, it’s a nonsurgical face-lift.Remember, that Botox breaks down every 3 to 4 months, so you’ll needto repeat visits.
New TCA peels to remove sun damage and ¬hyperpigmentation
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels are one of the most effective methods of removing sun damage and ¬hyperpigmentation. The only problem is that they leave behind scabs that take about 2 weeks to heal. But Glytonereleased a new TCA peel this year – it has 25% trichloroacetic acid and a delivery system that bypasses the very outer layer of skin. It removes damage without injuring the top of the epidermis, so there’s no scabbing.Patients can experience dryness and mild flaking for a week, but the long-lasting and immediate results are well worth it. Most of the time, one treatment is all it takes to achieve a significantly brighter and more even complexion.
Photodynamic rejuvenation to eliminate sun damage on the skin
Photodynamic rejuvenation is a treatment that doctors use to eliminate sun damage on the face, legs, and arms. It combines pigment-busting Intense Pulsed Light with a topical drug (amniolevulinic acid) that destroys abnormal and precancerous cells. Patients with moderately to severely sun-damaged skin look transformed after 2 or 3 sessions. Also, according to new research, the non-ablative fractional laser – atreatment that can lighten clusters of pigment on the face and chest – couldhave major health benefits as well. It shows real potential as a remedy for precancerous cells. It also showed tremendous improvement in the skin tone and fine lines.
Coblationskin resurfacing for removing wrinkles
Coblation skin resurfacing helps remove wrinkles safer and easier than before. Instead of using laser technology (which can reach extremely high temperatures), coblation uses radiofrequency energy that rarely exceeds 700Fahrenheit.Coblation can be used to treat not just wrinkles, but also skin pigmentation and coarse skin. Because this technology works at much lower temperatures than conventional laser treatments, the recovery process for most patients also is faster.
Non-ablative laser resurfacing for treating wrinkles and other skincare issues
Unlike traditional ablative laser treatment, non-ablative laser resurfacing doesn’t remove the upper layers of the skin. Non-ablative laser resurfacing helps tighten skin and stimulate rejuvenation. Although the effects of non-ablative treatments are not as drastic as traditional laser treatments, recovery timesare much shorter.
