Skin - How To Enhance It?

Skin - How To Enhance It?

We all love that perfectly glowing skin that has no marks or signs of ageing like moles, tags, fine lines, dark circles and many others. However, for most of us, this remains an imaginary picture that we have in mind. What stares back at us in the mirror has some of the above-noted features, in various combinations. However, the desire for that blemish-free skin without any of these continues and is actually not far from reality too.

Some major irritants causing skin scars are as follows:

  1. Vascular marks including thread veins and broken capillaries.
  2. Spider nevus is a spider-web like structure with a central vessel and surrounding capillaries dilated radiating away from it. Similarly, blood spots are red, vascular spots that come with ageing.
  3. Skin tags or milia or warts, these are harmless but esthetically concerning and can irritate if found in an area where it interferes with the garments
  4. Age spots or brown spots that occur due to sun exposure are also harmless but are esthetic concern.

With esthetics attaining such importance, new ways are constantly being identified to help people improve their looks. While there are various creams and lotions and serums with promises of various chemicals that can do wonders, there actually are procedures that have a scientific basis and can produce results more quickly and effectively. The following are some popular advanced cosmetic procedures (ACPs) that can help clear these blemishes and produce a spotless, clear skin.

  1. Chemical peels: This is an exfoliation process done in the clinic, by removing the top layers of rough skin, thereby, making space for new skin to grow. It stimulates the growth of collagen and elastin, and promoting new skin growth. It can also be combined with topical antioxidants such as tretinoin and vitamin C, which are proven beneficial for the skin.
  2. Dermabrasion: Used in a variety of conditions (acne, wrinkles, blemishes), it works on layers that are far deeper than a chemical peel. A rotating brush is used to remove the upper layers of the skin, leaving the underlying layers open. The removed layers of the skin may form a scab, and can be mildly painful. The doctor may decide to use a mild local anesthetic if required.
  3. Laser skin resurfacing: The skin has an upper thicker layer and an inner thinner layer. A small amount of laser is applied to the underlying layers to stimulate them to produce collagen. The top layers are kept cool with a gel. The extra collagen produces improves elasticity and produces younger-looking skin, removing all blemishes.

All these are equally proven ways to treat blemishes. The decision of choosing one particular method should be completely based on your expectations.

Vampire Face Lift - Know Working Of It!

Vampire Face Lift - Know Working Of It!

We all crave for that eternally youthful looking face when we look into the mirror. We all wonder how some celebrities never seem to age at all. The glow and skin does not seem to age at all, and seeing them, the question we have is what is the magic here? The answer lies within themselves, which is their own blood. Using the own blood to maintain youthful looks is one of the most recent techniques in anti-ageing, and this is known as vampire facelift.

How does it work?

  1. The blood is the carrier and supplier of vital nutrients to the entire body. It carries the vital nutrients in a fluid medium called the plasma.
  2. In addition to the nutrients, it also has what is called blood cells (red and white) and growth factors which are essential for regulating growth. By separating out the various components, a high concentration of the growth factors is extracted.
  3. This plasma-rich fluid (PRF) is then injected into specific parts of the face (generally the face, but other parts can also be treated). So, whether a person has sinking eyes or hollow cheeks, they can be managed

Origin and Popularity
This technique was originally used in injured athletes with torn ligaments and joints. By providing a rich supply of nutrients and growth factors, it helps in quicker healing, restoring shape, improving tone, and overall rejuvenation of the injured area. Though not actually an injury, the changes that the face goes through are a part of degeneration with age. Cosmetic surgeons believed the same could be extended to treat the age changes in the face, and so vampire facelift gained popularity.

Procedure:

  1. The first step is to find yourself a well-trained and experienced surgeon
  2. A thorough discussion of how the procedure will happen and what to expect after the procedure. Expectations should be realistically set for both the surgeon and the patient.
  3. What the surgeon can do and what the patient wants should be aligned to achieve the outcomes.
  4. Using historical and current records of the patient (pictures mostly) and using other standard measurements, the desired outcomes are set down.
  5. In the case of hollow cheeks or under-eye areas, dermal fillers (usually of hyaluronic acid) may be used to create some fullness.
  6. The blood is then extracted and centrifuged to separate the plasma-rich fluid
  7. This is then injected into various predetermined areas of the skin to do the corrections.
  8. This could include younger glowing skin, improved fullness, improved firmness of the skin, etc.
  9. The first session requires about 3 sittings with repeat sessions in about 4 weeks.
  10. It can be repeated annually if required.

Picture-Perfect Skin - How To Attain It?

Picture-Perfect Skin - How To Attain It?

The radiant, glowing skin that stares at us from the billboards and hoardings may be extremely artificial, but it definitely imbibes in us a desire to achieve better skin. This is not restricted to just young girls, but also adults refusing to accept the changes that age brings with it. Many want to look younger far younger than their ages.

While there is no trick that will do the magic, there are definitely some things to follow which can help you achieve a picture-perfect skin:

  1. Laser resurfacing: The top layers of the skin need to make way for the fresh layers, which grow from below. This keeps the skin fresh and young in appearance. However, when there is too much of old skin at the top, it ends up appearing dull and lifeless. Laser resurfacing uses a beam of laser where the top layers are removed and the underlying layers are stimulated, so fresh skin is produced. This will need to be repeated at regular intervals.
  2. Chemical peels: Though the concept remains the same as above, chemicals are used to remove the top layers instead of a laser. This could, for instance, include salicylic acid, lactic acid, glycolic acid, etc. The mild acids induce as well as irritate the skin. They are, however, naturally present in the skin and therefore preferred sometimes.
  3. Botox: This prevents aging by relaxing the facial nerve endings. When the brain does not receive a signal from the skin, it continues to remain as is (minus the aging). This is a huge rage and many people swear by this. This is especially useful in women who want to curtail the aging effects including crow’s feet, and fine lines at the nose and forehead. These need to be repeated at regular intervals.
  4. Vampire facelift: The platelet-rich plasma, an elixir extracted from your own blood studded with millions of growth factors when injected into your skin, gives younger looking lifted and radiant skin with less wrinkles, dark spots and other signs of aging.
  5. Spider vein treatment: If you have spider veins or small veins on your face that are thought to be unsightly, this could be the answer.

In addition to all the above procedures, the following tips never go out of trend and always provide great results:

  1. Keep the skin clean – never go to sleep with makeup on
  2. Regularly exfoliate the skin
  3. Use sunscreen adequately to minimize damage from the sun.
  4. Adequately moisturize the skin to avoid dryness
  5. Use natural products like turmeric, milk cream, lime, honey, fruit packs
  6. Eat fresh vegetables and fruits
  7. Avoid oily, junk, processed foods
  8. Exercise well
  9. Ensure a good night’s sleep
