What are facial aesthetic treatments?2021.11.01
In the modern world of technology and body consciousness, body modifications and enhancements are getting more popular and accessible to the public. More people are considering getting their appearances improved by having surgeries and treatments. Facial aesthetic treatments are one of these methods when it comes to improving the skin’s health and appearance. In this article, we’ll be discussing the things you need to know about facial aesthetic treatments.
Facial aesthetic treatment
Aesthetic treatments are non-surgical procedures that are specifically designed to improve your appearance. These include treatments such as fillers, thread lifts, and muscle relaxants that can help reduce the early signs of aging and help give you a natural and fresh look without going through invasive procedures.
Types of facial aesthetic treatments
Derma pens, derma rollers, and derma stamps
These types of aesthetic treatments are under microneedling. Microneedling promotes the production of collagen by repeatedly puncturing the skin’s surface with tiny and sterilized needles. Collagen can make your skin well-moisturized and glowing, and this treatment will rejuvenate your skin inside and out. There will be a numbing topical applied first before going through the procedure and a slightly sunburnt skin complexion for about 48 hours is a very common side effect after going through this type procedure.
Chemical peels or facial skin resurfacing is a very popular and safe non-surgical procedure that can improve the appearance of the skin and help significantly reduce the effects of skin damage such as wrinkles, acne, and others.People can choose many different types of chemical peels based on the sensitivity of the skin or the results they like. The main idea behind chemical peeling is to remove all dead skin cells on the surface layer and re-form a new healthy layer under the dermis. Although this process does not happen quickly, the result usually provides brighter, clearer skin.
Chemical peels can be performed in clinics, and the price ranges from US$200 to US$6,000, depending on the depth of treatment. However, many people prefer to find an economical choice of chemical exfoliating products that can be easily implemented in home skin care regimens. Regardless of the situation, it is always ideal to consult a specialist before performing any type of skin treatment.
The treatment procedure will usually take about an hour to finish, and you’ll be seeing the effect of this treatment within or after 10 days, depending on the volume of area, type of chemical peel, and on how you take care of your skin during the recovery time.
The most common signs of aging can be seen by the face’s volume loss, because as we age, our face naturally loses amounts of subcutaneous fat and collagen. As facial tissues become thinner, laugh lines and crow's feet become more pronounced, and cheeks may look a little sunken. External factors such as sun exposure, stress, and lifestyle can also increase and accelerate this process. Although aging is inevitable, we can do something with the help of dermal fillers to help our skin revive or maintain its youthful appearance. The filler is a gel-like substance that is injected under the skin to help reduce facial lines such as wrinkles by restoring the lost volume and fullness of the face.
This is one of the top facial beauty treatments performed by thousands of men and women all year round, who choose fillers as a cost-effective and less invasive way to look younger without surgery or downtime.
Dermal fillers aren’t only for making the skin look smooth, this treatment also provides additional volume to your facial features to make patients look aesthetically more attractive. Some examples are:
Smoothing out lines around the nose and mouth such as marionette lines and nose-to-mouth lines.
Enhances the shape and volume on the lips.
Cheek sculpting to improve the volume of sunken cheeks.
Facial profile and shape sculpting.
Reduces dark circles and fine lines under the eyes.
The thread face lifting technique solves minimal issues related to signs of aging. These problems can only be solved by invasive surgery, especially the sagging of the lower face, neck and jawline. Although the effect cannot be compared with surgery, this treatment is more affordable, easier to tolerate, and can be combined with other treatments such as dermal fillers to obtain the best results.
This treatment only takes around 30-60 minutes(depending on the patient’s needs), and the procedure is similar to the dermal filler treatment. Apart from possible bruising and swelling, the side effects are very minimal. You can resume normal daily activities immediately after your thread lift treatment.
Profhilo is a stable injectable used to treat tissue remodeling and skin sagging without any chemical cross-linking agents. Anyone who is recommended to go through dermal fillers can also go through this type of treatment. This kind of treatment can provide moisture, shine, firmness, and strength to the skin of the face and neck, and has a very effective anti-aging effect.
Patients can expect consistency, elasticity and volume, and the overall results of the patient’s appearance can last up to six months. Practitioners highly recommend patients to have treatments at intervals of 4 weeks, have follow-up appointments at the 8th week, and repeated twice a year for the best results.
Tips you should remember pre and post-treatment
Although facial aesthetic treatments are less invasive and require less recovery time compared to surgeries, there are also some things to avoid before and after every treatment. Patients can benefit from skin care before and after their treatments, in some cases, skin care regimens can also reduce the recovery time of your treatment. Taking care of your skin before and after aesthetic treatments also produces more collagen and keeps your skin healthy and glowing as you recover. Here are some tips to remember for your pre and post-treatment skin care.
Stay away from extreme heat such as hot tubs and saunas.
Be mindful of what kind of products you put on your skin.
Avoid putting skin creams, serums or any moisturizer before your treatment.

Take vitamins and supplements such as vitamin A, vitamin C and antioxidants.
Use sunscreen with a high-SPF to protect your skin from hash UV rays
Some treatments might cause discomfort(such as soreness, itching, etc.) while recovering, some face masks and creams can be used to soothe any uncomfortable feeling as long as it is approved by the practitioner to be used during the recovery process.
Collagen skin products will not have much impact while your skin is recovering post-treatment
Having a healthy diet and eating more food with the needed vitamins is important as taking supplements to make the recovery time shorter.
Remove as much dirt and avoid wearing makeup while you’re in the recovery phase of your treatment.
