Hot New Beauty Treatments That Turn Back Time
A vampire facelift? Sounds strange, but it’s one of the hot new ways to recapture youth. And with spring just around the corner, who doesn't want a fresher, younger look?
MyFoxNY reports that it’s now possible to look years younger almost instantly. They've evaluated the crème de la crème of anti-aging procedures and found that though some of them may seem bizarre—such as the vampire facelift—all are definitely worth checking out.
Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
CO2 fractional laser therapy is considered one of the biggest anti-aging breakthroughs of the decade. Combing the effectiveness of traditional carbon dioxide lasers with a new application technique, fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing delivers powerful results without the harsh side effects associated with more invasive procedures. The fractional CO2 laser resurfacing provides all the benefits of laser resurfacing without all the downtime and complications.
How does CO2 laser resurfacing work exactly? The natural aging process, combined with exposure to sun and pollution, destroys collagen—the main protein of connective tissue that keeps skin plump and line-free. Laser resurfacing uses beams of energy light to create tiny holes in the skin, which works to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing does this in a way that prevents damage to the top layer of the skin, offering maximum results with minimal recovery time.
Wrinkle injections such as Juvéderm, Radiesse, and Perlane can volumize skin anywhere on the face, meaning clients can obtain a lifted, youthful look without surgery. Unlike a facelift, which pulls the skin taut and tight, volumizing plumps up the skin to give it a more natural youthfulness. Some hyaluronic acid-based wrinkle fillers, such as Restylane and Juvéderm, can even stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, meaning clients can achieve longer-lasting and more dramatic results. Wrinkle fillers are ideal for people with busy schedules because most often side effects are mild and are usually limited to redness or swelling at the site of injection.
Doctors have been using Botox for years to successfully treat wrinkles and facial creases. Botox is a brand name of a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, which works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles that underlie dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles such as smoker’s lines, frown lines and furrow lines are temporarily relaxed. Botox is an easy, quick way to instantly take years off your appearance. While Botox's effects typically last four to six months, lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because Botox trains the muscles to relax.
This revolutionary new procedure may sound like something from Count Dracula’s castle, but it promises to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as create volume in the face. The vampire facelift isn’t even a facelift – it’s considered more of a dermal filler procedure. Using the client’s own blood, a mixture is prepared that is injected under the skin, allowing some plumping and filling of the tissue under the skin. The vampire facelift uses “platelet-rich plasma” as the filler because platelets, a normal component of blood, promote healing. Platelets are rich in growth factor, as well as other chemicals and hormones that stimulate the body to generate healing tissue. The vampire facelift is an excellent option if you want to use more natural, organic materials to achieve a younger look.
