What Kinds Of Anti-Aging Aesthetic Treatments Are Right For You?

By Cynthia Thaik, M.D., FACC

No woman likes looking older.  This is why we are now spending millions of pounds each year on various over the counter products, prescription creams and other aesthetic treatments to prevent signs of aging.   

When it comes to treating the signs of aging aesthetic treatments are a more affordable option in comparison to cosmetic surgery.   But can these actually help you to keep looking younger for longer? 

In most cases yes they can, but you need to understand what it is involved so you can make a more informed choice of what kind of anti-aging aesthetic treatment is right for you.   

But before we take a look at the kinds of treatments now available you need to know such may involve the use of lasers or other equipment that can reach a great deal deeper into your skin.  This can result in changes to your skin that is far longer lasting compared to the application of creams or lotions.  It is also important that someone who has the relevant training and experience should always perform any kind of aesthetic treatment you undertake.

So What Are The Benefits Of These Anti-Aging Treatments?

  • Improves your uneven tone and texture of your skin
  • Improves any spots or hyperpigmentation to your skin
  • Helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Helps to improve a dull complexion and skin that is flat and dehydrated
  • Helps to reduce acne as well as acne scars
  • Can help to address any issues that relate to you getting older
  • Can help to repair damage caused by the sun

What Sorts Of Aesthetic Treatments Can Be Used To Reduce Signs Of Aging?

As already mentioned there are quite a number of different treatments now available for treating signs of aging without the need for surgical intervention.


This particular anti-aging treatment uses either tiny fine particles or a hard diamond-tipped wand to help remove dead cells from the top layer of your skin.  It also helps to encourage the growth of new skin.  This procedure isn’t all that painful but can feel uncomfortable, but you will find that skin heals quickly after the procedure has been carried out.  But to achieve the best results possible, you may need to undergo several treatments over a period of a few weeks.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

This form of treatment uses high-intensity light to help improve the look of wrinkles and other scars.  It does this through tightening your skin and will soon become visible after only a short space of time.  How effective this treatment is will depend on how damaged your skin is and how deep the wrinkles are.   With this kind of aesthetic treatment, you will find that the results can last for anywhere from 2 years to 5 years.

Chemical Peels

This form of treatment is often used for age spots, dull skin, discoloured skin, wrinkles or mild acne scars.   Like Microdermabrasion this treatment will remove the outer layers of your skin and also encourage new skin to grow in its place.  As a result of such treatment, you will find that not only does your skin feel smoother it also has a more even tone to it.  This is, of course, one of the more affordable forms of anti-ageing aesthetic treatment women can have.


This form of treatment is very familiar to us now and works in a way that is very different from other treatments we talk about here.  This aesthetic treatment actually paralyses tiny muscles in your face so causing any lines or wrinkles to be smoothed out.  With this treatment you often see the results very quickly and afterward the treatment can last for anywhere from 3 to 6 months.  The more often you have this treatment then the longer the results you are looking for will last.

When it comes to slowing down the signs of aging there are numerous different treatments available.  Which one you choose will, of course, depend on how damaged your skin is and also your budget. 

The main advantage of all these different types of aesthetic treatments is that you will see results a lot quicker than if you were to just continue using anti-aging creams.
