Your skin is the largest and one of the most important organs in (or rather, on) your body. Often, though, we take our skin for granted. We exercise for heart health, avoid smoke for lung health, and do puzzles for brain health, but what do you do for skin health? To keep your skin both healthy and looking fresh, firm, and beautiful, the Scottsdale Center for Women’s Health in Scottsdale, AZ offers aesthetic skincare to help you look and feel youthful.
What Is Aesthetic Skincare?
Aesthetic skincare focuses on improving the cosmetic appearance of your skin through treating health conditions, such as scars, wrinkles, moles, age spots, unwanted hair, skin discoloration, and more. This involves dermatology, reconstructive surgery, and cosmetic surgery, as well as both surgical and non-invasive procedures, or even a combination of both. These procedures are usually elective, but they have been shown to improve quality of life, mental health, and even some pain and discomfort.
What Procedures Are Used?
There are various types of aesthetic skincare that you can use to get your skin looking and feeling the way you want. These include laser rejuvenation, dermal fillers, thermage, microdermabrasion, and others. The treatment you use will depend on the issues you have and the result you wish to see.
Laser rejuvenation is an advanced aesthetic skincare treatment that removes wrinkles with the use of infrared light to tighten the skin. This is a non-invasive procedure that uses lasers to stimulate collagen production, making skin look and feel tighter. It requires no anesthesia or scalpel and has no downtime.
Dermal fillers are soft tissue injected into the skin to help fill in wrinkles, giving your skin a smoother appearance. These are usually temporary because they get absorbed by the body over time. It is an in-office procedure that often requires a few visits to achieve full results.
Thermage is an aesthetic skincare procedure that improves the skin by passing a radio frequency device over the face with the tip on the skin’s surface. Radio waves heat the layers of the skin, stimulating new collagen development to result in tighter, smoother skin. This method requires no downtime and results are often immediately clear.
Microdermabrasion quickly and easily removes age spots and light scars, including wrinkles. This is an in-office procedure using a handheld instrument that sprays small crystals onto the skin to exfoliate the skin.
Benefits of Aesthetic Skincare
Aside from making your skin look better, aesthetic skincare can help you feel better, both physically and mentally. This skincare is usually longer lasting and more effective than at-home remedies. It is less invasive, less expensive, and results in less recovery time than surgical procedures. There are many procedures to choose from, so you have lots of options to find the best one for you.
