Dermatological treatments to treat facial aging
Facial aging is not easy to reverse, since it occurs naturally and progressively. Currently, dermatologists recommend that we start taking care of our skin from an early age. Additionally, prudent use of the many advances in modern dermatology is also recommended. Among the main alternatives we have the following:
- The incorporation of nutritional supplements suggested by a specialist is recommended.
- Maintain a balanced body weight, in order to maintain adequate volume of fat compartments.
- Prevent the thinning of certain areas of the face by injecting calcium hydroxyapatite or infiltrations of hyaluronic acid.
- Use of tensor threads where it is necessary to compensate for fat compartments that have decreased.
- Generate the maximum collagen that can be obtained from the depth of the skin. For this, the application of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound is recommended.
- Perform a relaxation of the depressor muscles of the face through the application of Botox.
In addition to the recommendations related to modern dermatology, it is also recommended to follow a diet that favors the development of a healthy bone structure. Hydration is equally important; consume enough liquid through water and foods rich in water.
Importance of anti-aging cosmetics
In addition to advanced therapies, dermatology has also been developed at the cosmetological level. Over time, cosmetics have achieved formulas to combat the main signs of facial aging, such as sagging, wrinkles, spots, expression lines and, lack of luminosity, among others.
Currently, the cosmetics market offers a wide range of anti-aging products. These products are intended for healthy routines, such as facial cleansing and damage reduction. The most common area of action is the eye contour and lips; the neck and hands.
Among the main active ingredients that cosmetics have incorporated into their recipes are:
- Retinol: is a derivative of vitamin A soluble in fats or oils. Helps increase the elasticity of the skin, while contributing to the reduction of wrinkles and providing luminosity and texture
- Vitamin C: in cosmetics it is the most widely used antioxidant. This important vitamin prevents damage caused by oxidation due to the action of UV rays. Likewise, it is a melanin inhibitor so it helps reduce blemishes.
- Hyaluronic acid: it is a polysaccharide of the glycosaminoglycan type. This substance is naturally present in some tissues of the human body. It is one of the fundamental active ingredients in anti-aging cosmetics because it helps to hydrate the skin.
- Glycolic Acid: This is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that is used as a primary treatment for the deeper skin surface. It is a fundamental ingredient in anti-wrinkle cosmetics and to combat skin damage caused by the sun.
- Salicylic acid: salicylic acid is a medication belonging to the so-called keratolytic agents. It is used in the treatment of acne, psoriasis, warts and moles, because it stimulates cell renewal and the elimination of dead cells.
