As we age, our skin tone can appear uneven or dull, thanks to sun spots, freckles, dark patches, liver spots or rosacea, all of which are worsened by sun exposure. And while many associate wrinkles with aging, unevenness and dullness in skin tone are equally to blame.
So what can we do to restore a youthful glow and brightness to our skin? A lot, actually.
Glowing, radiant skin is the result of a good skincare routine, and one of the first steps you should take in your routine is evening out your skin tone. And whether you need to lighten freckles, pigmentation or age spots, many of the available skin-brightening treatments actually serve to ‘damage’ your skin in order to improve it. Wounding the skin in a calculated way triggers a natural response to increase blood flow, prompt skin turnover, and regenerate collagen to reduce pigmentation from sun damage or age.
So here are five of our favorite skin brightening procedures to give your skin a youthful glow and radiance.
Medical skincare: Teoxane’s skincare line uses the same hyaluronic acid found in their dermal-filler injections but unlike traditional hyaluronic acid, Teoxane’s RHA Resilient Hyaluronic Acid® is uniquely formulated to provide a hydrating layer on the skin’s surface as it moisturizes and tightens the skin with ingredients that are gradually released for a targeted response to the visible signs of aging.
Retin-A: A vitamin-A derivative, Retin-A helps to boost collagen production in your skin to make skin appear tighter and firmer. And since collagen gives your skin its elasticity, an increase in collagen production results in plumper, fuller skin with a diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in rejuvenated, younger-looking skin.
Regular exfoliation: OxyGeneo™ boasts the exfoliation benefits of microdermabrasion with deep facial rejuvenation as it exfoliates the upper skin layer to remove dead cells, smooth and renew the skin, and ready the skin to receive active nutrients for skin brightening and texture improvement.
Skin tightening: Apollo treatments tone, tighten and contour your skin and give it a fresh, healthy, rejuvenated appearance and texture by treating sagging skin, wrinkles and cellulite. Apollo heats the skin from within using medically proven radio-frequency (RF) technology to cause collagen fibers to contract, resulting in immediate wrinkle reduction.
IPL Photo Facial: The broadband IPL photo facial uses tiny pulses of light to heat tissue beneath the skin’s surface to improve superficial pigmentation and redness. Three or four treatments are required a month apart, then once or twice a year for maintenance.
While wrinkles and fine lines often get top billing for anti-aging treatments, you can help to restore a youthful radiance and glow to your skin by looking no further than your skincare routine.
