Promoting Firmer Skin
It's normal to develop sagging skin and wrinkles with age, but that doesn't mean that you have to be ready to embrace the natural aging process. Face lift treatments can help you to enhance your facial contours and to minimize wrinkles by firming and tightening your skin. Some products do so by actually lifting the skin using special adhesive tabs and strips. The products help to strengthen the facial muscles to promote a more youthful complexion.
Other face lift treatments use GABA to reduce contractions in the skin and give the complexion a smoother texture. You can also find face lift products that support the production of collagen and the repair of damage that contributes to sagging with ingredients like peptide complexes, niacinamide and vitamin C.
Addressing Dullness and Discoloration
Suffering from dull skin or hyperpigmentation? Skin treatments can help you improve your skin tone and restore radiance. Skin brighteners are formulas that promote a healthy glow with ingredients like vitamin C. These products are usually applied to the entire complexion to enhance its appearance.
Skin lighteners are products that address hyperpigmentation and are intended to be used as spot treatments. Some skin lighteners contain an FDA-approved medication for discoloration called hydroquinone to interrupt the production of melanin and lighten age spots and other types of discoloration.
A skin lightener may also contain natural ingredients that are believed to reduce pigment production, such as kojic acid, licorice extract and azelaic acid.
Many different types of imperfections can be addressed with skin peels, treatments that remove dead cells from the outer layer of skin. Most peels contain alpha hydroxy acids like lactic acid or glycolic acid. These ingredients act as chemical exfoliators, destroying the bonds that hold dead skin in place so that it can fall off. Peels can be used to make wrinkles less apparent, to lessen the prominence of discoloration and to minimize many different types of scars and blemishes.
