5 Tech Tools for Facial Rejuvenation

Maintaining a youthful look is best accomplished by having healthy, radiant skin. However, on a daily basis, our skin is battling the elements – damaging effects of sun exposure, toxins in the air and even the food we put into our bodies makes it difficult to naturally stave off early signs of aging. Even more concerning are internal factors, such as stress on the job or at home, that lead to sagging, discoloration and fine lines and wrinkles which are not easily hid.

Invasive cosmetic surgeries use to offer the only solution to achieve facial rejuvenation when at-home remedies failed to produce visible results. However, the advancement of medical technology has proven beneficial in the realm of anti-aging, with tech-based products available to help slow the process of aging for men and women alike. Facial rejuvenation is now possible without the harmful cutting, extensive downtime and high price tag of a traditional face lift.

While cosmetic intervention through invasive methods often provides lasting results, there are a number of concerns for patients undergoing major facial rejuvenation surgery. Common risks of conventional face lift procedures include side effects that cannot easily be reversed or corrected, such as infections, permanent nerve cell damage and deep scarring. Additionally, patients going under the knife must be subjected to anesthesia, which could have adverse effects if too much or too little is administered prior to or during the surgery. Each of these risks have the potential to lead to costly legal claims that cause both financial and mental anguish for patients. In an effort to steer clear of these issues surrounding invasive facial rejuvenation techniques, millions are turning to the following tech-based cosmetic treatments in an effort to restore their youthful skin.

Laser Treatments

The treatment of common skin issues through laser technology is quickly becoming a popular alternative to invasive techniques. Laser treatments penetrate to the deepest layers of the skin without damaging the outer layers, all to stimulate the production of lost collagen and the body’s natural healing process. This tech-based solution can be used to minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, acne scarring, sun damage and spots, as well as uneven skin tone. A range of laser treatments are available that vary in terms of intensity, allowing the medical professional performing the treatment to tailor results to each individual patient.

Heat Treatments

Skin rejuvenation is also available with the help of heat-based technology, often referred to as heat therapy procedures. Depending on the type of facial issue treatment, radiofrequency or ultrasound technology can be used to encourage the body to reproduce collagen lost due to damage or natural aging. Heat-based treatments offer precise targeting of skin tissue without cutting or otherwise damaging surrounding skin cells. These treatments work well for patients seeking firmer, brighter skin around the eyelids, the brow line, the jaw and neck.

Light Treatments

The use of intense pulsed light may also be an option for patients looking for a facial reboot. The deepest layers of the skin are reached through light treatment therapies, which promotes the body’s natural healing process in targeted areas. Without damaging the surface layer of the skin, light treatment works to boost collagen and elastin to reduce visible lines and wrinkles, light acne scarring, sun spots and trauma injuries.

Microneedling

Another non-invasive option for facial rejuvenation comes by way of microneedling – a procedure that involves a dermapen or dermastamp with tiny needles attached to its end. Through application of the microneedling device, the skin experiences hundreds of small injuries to its outer layer, causing the body to react by starting the healing process where the needles puncture. Although microneedling may not sound all that appealing, it is relatively painless and requires no downtime after. As collagen is forced to the injured treatment points, patients visible notice a reduction in visible scarring, large pores and acne.

Microcurrent

The use of electric currents may is also a method to enhance the overall look and feel of the skin, performed through a procedure known as microcurrent. Electrical stimulation is applied directly to the treatment area to encourage the repair of skin damaged due to aging or sun exposure. Microcurrency works to effectively tighten pores which leads to the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. As with most technology-based cosmetic procedures, the treatment is non-invasive and does not require recovery time.

Although the traditional face lift is known well for its long-term results and visible rejuvenation for most patients, the surgery comes with a bevy of risks. Individuals who are looking for a fresh face without the need for invasive procedures can turn to one of the technology-enabled treatment options listed above. Prior to undergoing any cosmetic procedure, it is important for individuals to understand potential side effects, and to discuss expectations for results with a medical professional.
