Sun damaged skin isn't easy to cure, but there are some ways that one can alleviate signs of aging. Chemical peels, laser abrasion and dermabrasion are among the acceptable treatments. You can do this as a standalone treatment or combine it with other treatments. There are nonsurgical facials containing Vitamin C that can improve your damaged skin.
Many people having had facelifts may not be fully satisfied with the results because of fine lines remaining around the eyes and mouth. Chemical peels and dermabrasion are treatments to remove the upper surface of the skin. These treatments used in combination with a face-lift procedure will improve the appearance of the fine lines around the eyes and mouth.
Chemical peels are great for brightening and freshening up your face. They work by "peeling" away the upper layers of skin which are dead. A dermatologist or trained cosmetologist will paint it onto the face and let it sit for awhile. These peels are done in a series of three or six.
If you are unhappy with the way your skin looks and want a dramatic improvement, consider getting a chemical peel. Chemical peels are relatively simple procedures that can be performed by both dermatologists and plastic surgeons. Light chemical peels are used to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and to improve the overall texture and smoothness of the skin. These can usually be done without having to miss any work.
To avoid excessively drying out skin, be very careful when using chemical peels or any product which is alcohol-based. This is especially important in the wintertime, and more so if you have extremely dry skin as the norm. Opt for gentle foaming cleansers which won't strip skin's vital oils. Also, look for "deeply-hydrating" products.
Once a week, you should exfoliate your skin. Exfoliating can be accomplished through microdermabrasion, chemical peels and through the use of retinoid products. The easiest way to exfoliate is by using a facial scrub that will remove the topmost layer of your skin which is composed of dead skin cells that make your complexion appear dull and lifeless.
