Facial Treatments That Diminish Signs of Aging

Blog » Reviews » Spa Treatments » Facial Treatments That Diminish Signs of Aging

As we age, our search for ways to diminish signs of aging reaches the top of the list. Today, I am highlighting a few facial treatments that diminish the signs of aging by reducing wrinkles and improving overall skin tone so you are able to retain that youthful glow. Maintaining a regular facial routine at home is key, followed by periodic professional treatments throughout the year. 

Home Based Treatments

There’s nothing like a quiet, self-pampering session at home. Treat yourself to these age-defying treatments. 

  • Facial Steamer
  • Micro-Needling With a Derma Roller
  • MIcrodermabrasion

Facial Steamer 

Before attempting any at-home facial treatment, I highly recommend steaming your face first. Just a few minutes of steam prepares your skin for what comes next.

I love using the Facial Steamer SPA by Microderm GLO (Amazon).  It sprays a warm Nano Ionic Mist on your face and neck to provide you with a squeaky clean and radiant complexion.  Steaming increases the blood flow to your face and neck, and opens your pores for maximum absorption of your favorite peptides, serums, moisturizers, and creams that penetrate deep into your skin.

Micro-Needling With a Derma Roller

A derma roller is a skincare device with small, fine needles on its surface. When the derma roller is rolled over the skin, the small, fine needles on the roller puncture the skin. The holes that the needles create in the skin are tiny and considered to be superficial so the treatment is seen as minimally invasive.  rolling micro needling kit

When the skin is punctured it creates a controlled skin injury. It does not cause actual damage to the outer layer of skin but does cause redness for several hours.  And if rolled hard enough, can cause bleeding. Immediately follow the trearment with your favorite serum and face cream, which will penetrate deeper into your skin through the micro-holes you just created.  Be sure to use rubbing alcohol on your device before and after use to reduce the risk of infection. 

The benefits of micro-needling at home:

  • improvement of acne scars and discoloration
  • reduced wrinkles and stretch marks
  • skin rejuvenation for texture and complexion
  • enhancement of product absorption
  • increased skin thickness

Several needle sizes are available. Start small with a size of  0.5 mm or 1.0 mm and progress from there. Try the Derma Roller Kit 6 in 1 for Microneedling Face and Body by Inotka(Amazon).

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion treatments use a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. This type of skin rejuvenation is used to treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage, and stretch marks. In addition, the results offer a more even skin tone, diminished fine lines, and pore reduction. 

During a crystal microdermabrasion treatment, micro-fine crystals are shot from a small tube onto your skin and simultaneously vacuumed back up. You can also perform a more gentle treatment on yourself at home with the Microderm GLO Premium Skincare Bundle Diamond Microdermabrasion System. Test on a small area of skin to see how you react before performing a full treatment on your face as this procedure can be more aggressive than you think. For maximum benefit, hold your skin taut while you pass the wand over the area to be treated, especially near the eyes and mouth.

NuFace Trinity Facial Laser Treatment

Be sure to apply a primer to the targeted area prior to use.  This ensures optimal microcurrent conductivity that penetrates deep into the skin. NuFace Hydrating Leave-On Gel Primer. (Amazon).

For best results, I recommend three to four passes of the device to each area of concern. When you make this a part of your daily routine, results will be visible within weeks to months.

Professional Treatments

Three popular facial treatments performed by a professional at a spa or medical center include: 

  • Galvanic micro-current electrical treatments
  • Photorejuvenation
  • Fraxel treatment

Galvanic Micro-Current Electrical Treatments

Galvanic Micro-Current treatment at a professional spa is a flash-firming neck treatment involving galvanic micro-current. This treatment can be performed on the face to firm skin and reduce wrinkles and on the body to treat cellulite. It is a safe treatment with no downtime. 

Benefits of Galvanic Micro-Current Treatment:

  • Tightening and firming of tissues
  • Reduction of edema and lymph stagnation
  • Oxygenation of cells
  • Calming and soothing of the skin
  • Restores critical moisture
  • Regenerates the skin
  • Stimulates cell renewal and improves skin vitality

Photorejuvenation

Photorejuvenation is a skin treatment that uses lasers, intense pulsed light, or photodynamic therapy to treat skin conditions and remove effects of photoaging such as wrinkles, spots, and textures. The process induces controlled wounds on the skin, prompting it to heal itself by creating new cells.

Intense Pulsed light also reduces the effects of sun damage, photoaging, rosacea, redness and other facial skin imperfections. This FDA-approved technology provides dramatic results. After a series of treatments, you may see a significant reduction of unwanted pigmentation, redness, and lines, and see the appearance of smoother, revitalized skin. The same treatment can be used effectively on the neck, the chest, and the hands. Contact a facility near you that provides this service for pricing and availability. 

Fraxel

The grand-daddy of laser treatments is the Fraxel laser treatment. It uses an FDA-approved fractional laser that restores your skin. It literally takes years off of your appearance. After just one Fraxel treatment you’ll experience smoother, younger-looking skin while erasing unwanted brown spots (including freckles!), acne scars, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Treatments range from $600 to $800 so budget accordingly. 

The laser creates tiny “columns of thermal destruction” in the skin that stimulate the growth of new, healthy skin cells to replace old, damaged cells. It basically repairs your skin from the inside by targeting skin turnover and collagen production, which is actually just the body’s natural healing process accelerated.

Three treatments are recommended for maximum results. And fall and winter are ideal times to minimize any sun exposure afterward. I would allow a good 4-5 days of staying at home after each treatment for your skin to peel and heal. The excessive peeling is hard to cover up with makeup. But what waits beneath is well worth the wait! Contact a facility near you that provides this service for pricing and availability. 

Final Thoughts

In addition to these facial treatments, drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep toxins moving through your body.  Eat a healthy diet with lots of vegetables which improves skin quality and gives you a healthy glow. Wear sunscreen to protect your newly treated and exposed skin and remember a woman is most beautiful when she smiles.
