The Importance of Skin Health in Preventing Ageing Appearance
You can’t just go to a clinic, pick a treatment and then expect never to show any signs of ageing again. There are multiple factors when it comes to preventing ageing that you need to be aware of before you decide to try new cosmetic treatments. You need to be able to dedicate time and money every few months to getting top-up treatments or else wrinkles and fine lines will start to become visible again. And, if you don’t follow the aftercare instructions your treatment could be ruined, and instead of fabulous results, you could see little change. But, if you replenish your body’s natural chemicals, look after your skin post-treatment and show up for every follow-up appointment, you will see a dramatic difference in your appearance.
It’s common knowledge that every few months you will have to get your nails redone and hair restyled as although the initial results are great your body changes and the results will fade. Your skin is no different. It needs regular care to keep it looking its best. So, read on to have a more in-depth look at how you can boost your skin’s health to help prevent visible ageing.
Keep On Top of Your Skin Treatments
You need to keep on top of your treatments if you want to see an improvement in your skin’s health. Many procedures involve stimulating your body’s natural healing process, and over time they can slow down and halt. For example, the extremely popular Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) involves rolling a titanium device across the skin to create a smoother fuller appearance. It punctures the skin with thousands of tiny micro-needles, creating a multitude of small wounds which trigger the body’s healing process. The healing process stimulates the production of new tissue, collagen and elastin, which boost the skin’s health and tightens the skin. This helps you to gain a natural youthful look, wiping wrinkles and fine lines from the skin.
Your practitioner should advise you when you will see the optimal results and when you need to come back for a top-up treatment. Most last between one month and six months, so depending on the treatment you shouldn’t have to return to the clinic too often.
Replenish Dwindling Natural Chemicals
Skin treatments are just like hair treatments. If you want glossy, non-frizzy hair, you often need to go to a salon or commit to using specific hair products. But, if you stop the anti-frizz treatments, your hair will return to the frizzy mess it was. The same is for your skin. When your skin stops producing its anti-ageing chemicals and proteins – collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid (HA) – your skin will start to age. So, if you want to halt the anti-ageing process, and remove wrinkles and fine lines, you need to use skin treatments regularly.
The best way to do this is to replenish these natural substances in your skin that dwindle over time. Collagen, elastin and HA are all critical in the health and tightness of your skin. One way to do this is through Profhilo Skin Remodelling, a treatment that involves injecting HA into the face, encouraging more collagen and elastin production. By boosting the amount of these chemicals and proteins in your skin, your skin is tightened and rejuvenated, as more skin cells can be nourished. If you have regular treatments to ensure that the chemicals are continually present, it can be a fantastic way to stay youthful for longer.
Follow the Aftercare Instructions
Skin treatments not only work turn back time on your face, but they also boost your skin’s health. This is important if you want the effects of various treatment to last longer. Poor skin habits can cause acne, wrinkles and rashes, making the money and time you put into your treatments effectively wasted. To avoid this, make sure you follow the aftercare instructions from your practitioner. They will provide you with instructions on how to prevent infection, and guarantee you get optimal results.
For Collagen Induction Therapy you should be told to avoid extreme temperatures such as hot baths and saunas, as well as avoid touching your face unless with clean hands in the first few days. This is because you have thousands of micro-injuries that, although you may not see them, can still be infected if not looked after properly as they heal. As long as you do this, your skin will stay healthy and visible ageing will be prevented.
Your skin’s health – both before, during and after treatments – is vital if you want to prevent the ageing process. You need to keep on top of your procedures and boost your chemical production if you want to see tighter skin and take years off your face.
