As wrinkles and fine lines begin to appear or grow significantly in number, seemingly overnight, the search for a solution often ensues. There are lots of creams, ointments, capsules, and cleansers claiming to lessen the severity of these often unwanted changes. Sun exposure and age take their toll on all faces eventually, but the quest to slow down the hands of time is one that millions of people share. There are many facial rejuvenation treatments and methods, some more natural, others of the cosmetic enhancement variety. Some facial rejuvenation treatment options that many people seek before looking toward facial fillers and other cosmetic options include some of the following non-surgical facial rejuvenation options.
Arabinoxylans are found in the cells of grains, including barley, wheat, and rye, and are responsible for the cohesion of resistance cells. As such, extracts from these materials are thought to have skin boosting abilities intended to help firm and lift the skin. There are some arabinoxylan fillers on the market which contain this rye extract and are intended to target the loss of volume in the skin.
Microcurrent treatments mimic the body’s electrical impulses as though the brain is re-educating muscles that have begun to slacken with age. Doing this is said to help relocate where those facial muscles ought to be, and regular treatments should help restore proper facial tone. Tiny charges help to stimulate facial muscles, and in so doing, improve the appearance of aging.
Saccharide isomerate is used as a moisturizing regulator by binding to the free amino groups of keratin and lysine within the layers of the skin, and in so doing, plumping up skin that has lost much of its volume. Their effectiveness is debatable, with some patients happy with the results and others not so sure they see any improvement at all.
Simple Prevention Tactics
If your skin is not yet to the point of showing wrinkles, sagging skin, crow’s feet, and smile lines, there might still be much to be done in the way of prevention. Even if significant damage has taken place, prevention is always beneficial. The effects of old age are largely inevitable, but by staying hydrated, avoiding over exposure to the sun, and eating healthy foods, your skin can look vibrant and more youthful that it would otherwise.
