I’m turning 40 in September. And I’m beginning to worrying about showing the signs of ageing. Thankfully there are a number of modern anti-ageing choices.

Modern Anti-Ageing Choices

Anti-aging techniques have been around in some form or another for a long time. However, modern technologies have allowed skincare experts to develop many new and exciting ways to at least temporarily turn back the hands of time and improve skin quality. If you are interested in fighting back against outward signs of ageing then you should investigate options like the ones below.

Reversing Signs of Ageing with Anti-Wrinkle Injections

The word injection may sound unpleasant, but there are many modern injections which can improve skin health. For example, Botox injections can temporarily paralyze the muscles in the area affected, making the skin appear tighter. If Botox doesn’t sound good to you then you can also opt for anti-wrinkle injections in the form of fillers which will fill in sunken areas, much like filling a balloon with air or water. The costs of volumizing fillers vary quite a bit depending on the particular type of material injected. In general, you can expect to pay between $600 and $1,000 per infection.

Treating Your Skin with Various Laser Device

Another way to reverse visible signs of ageing on your skin is to have laser treatment. Both ablative (surface treating) lasers and non-ablative (deep tissue) laser treatments have been around for years and can reduce wrinkles and tighten up sagging skin, as well as reduce other blemishes and imperfections. A newer way to improve your appearance with laser treatment utilizes fractional CO2 lasers. Fractional CO2 lasers are capable of delivering excellent results with fewer side effect risks than you might encounter from older forms of skincare laser treatments. Fractional CO2 lasers do not damage the outer layer of skin, which means infection risks after your treatment will be low as well.

Treating Your Skin with Sound Waves

Sound waves in the form of either ultrasound therapy or radio frequency treatments can also be used to reverse signs of ageing. The specific sound frequencies used essentially vibrate skin cells and help to kick-start defensive processes inside the human body. However, if you choose such treatments you should know that they are much milder and slower to show results than laser procedures.

Using Topical Antioxidants to Boost the Health of Your Skin

It has long been accepted that antioxidants, which are healthy nutrients, are capable of destroying potentially harmful substances known as free radicals. You can get antioxidants from many sources, including the foods you eat. However, one of the best ways to immediately help your skin is to apply antioxidants directly on it in the form of skin creams. Topical creams containing antioxidants and other vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin E can help your skin stay healthy, reverse existing damage, and slow down the development of new damage in the future.

Adding Vitamin A to Your Skincare Routine

In addition to antioxidants and other vitamins, vitamin A is essential for the health of your skin. Also sometimes known as Retin A or retinoids, creams containing vitamin A can slow down the degradation of collagen in your cells. In some cases, such creams can also help your body to produce extra collagen on an ongoing basis. Collagen is the substance which binds skin cells together and keeps sags from occurring.

Combining Skincare Techniques for the Best Results

The most important thing to remember about your personal anti-ageing skincare routine is exactly that. It needs to be a routine. No single procedure you have done one time will magically fix all of your skin problems. However, by establishing a good daily skincare regimen and using the proper forms of clinical treatments to address problems you can keep your skin healthier for a longer period of time.
