Wish your skin was a little more vibrant? Should you try a new facial serum or treat yourself to a non-surgical treatment? Here at PRP in Philadelphia, Dr. Stuart Kauffman offers non-surgical cosmetic treatments to transform dull skin into vibrant skin.
Here’s what you need to know.
Exploring non-surgical treatments for more vibrant skin
When you quickly scan the skin care aisle at your local store, it’s easy to see there’s no shortage of products designed to pamper your skin, but sometimes you need more than a topical cream or serum. Lotion, serums, and creams are great for keeping your skin supple, but it’s not all you need … and that’s where non-surgical treatments come into the picture.
Ideally, you should exfoliate regularly, moisturize twice a day, and eat a diet with skin-friendly nutrients like vitamin C and healthy fats. But sometimes that’s not enough. Non-surgical cosmetic treatments can do what lotions and creams can’t do alone.
Here are five non-surgical treatments for more vibrant skin.
1. PRP facials
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is well-known for its role in sports injury treatments, but PRP can also help you reach your aesthetic goals. When included in a PRP facial, PRP can improve the appearance of wrinkles, sun damage, and scars. PRP facials can even reduce the appearance of undereye circles!
2. Botox® injections
Botox injections reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, such as eyebrow furrows, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles. When Botox relaxes these muscles, your skin smoothes over, creating a more vibrant and refreshed appearance.
3. Dermal fillers
Dermal fillers “fill” fine lines and wrinkles with hyaluronic acid, a material your body naturally produces. Hyaluronic acid acts like a sponge, soaking up water and making your skin soft and supple. Dermal fillers support healthy, vibrant skin by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, restoring lost volume in your cheeks and lips, and lifting sagging skin.
4. Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy, and what better way to create vibrant skin than to induce collagen. Collagen is a protein that gives your skin strength and elasticity. Combined with PRP, microneedling with PRP is a powerful duo designed to create more collagen, reduce wrinkles, improve the tone and texture of your skin, and reduce signs of aging.
5. Hormone replacement therapy
Believe it or not, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can have a profound effect on your skin. Although you might not immediately think of hormone therapy as a process designed to make your skin more vibrant, the reality is that balancing your hormones does have a positive effect on your skin.
Hormonal imbalances can cause dry, dull, and even itchy skin. HRT addresses skin concerns such as:
- Dry skin
- Hair loss
In addition to enhancing your skin and hair, HRT also addresses other symptoms of hormonal imbalances such as vaginal dryness, mood swings, breast tenderness, and fatigue.
Keeping your skin healthy from the inside out
In addition to non-surgical cosmetic treatments, there are many strategies you can take to keep your skin as healthy as possible. This includes:
- Staying hydrated (dry skin is dull skin!)
- Eating plenty of foods rich in skin-healthy nutrients
- Always wearing sunscreen when outside
- Avoiding tanning beds
- Covering up skin or wearing SPF to reduce excess UV exposure
- Moisturizing daily
- Exfoliating regularly
Remember, your skin is your largest organ, and while it needs adequate hydration and good nutrients, pampering your skin isn’t just a luxury — it’s a necessity!
