The Truth; anti-aging benefits of facial treatments

The fight to maintain youthful skin is as old as anyone can remember. In 2016 alone Americans spent almost $17 billion on spa services with most of that going into facial treatments. People today are always looking for ways to fight skin aging so as to have vibrant and young-looking skin without resorting to risky or expensive medical procedures. 

Day spas are a great place to go for pampering and relaxation; this keeps a person feeling refreshed, young, vibrant and wonderful, all of which attempts to turn back the hands of time. There are so many spa treatments that focus on reducing skin aging with some of them for the entire body while others are for the face only.

More than ever, we now have men going to spas for anti-aging skin treatments for their faces because like women, they want to look their best and retain their youth for as long as possible. The technique behind a facial is simple; it slows down the aging of skin processes by moisturizing the skin and removing dead skin cells, dirt and excess oil that has been trapped under. 

A properly done facial leaves your face feeling very soft to touch, natural-looking, and visible fading signs of wrinkles and fine lines. Then we have the deep message facials which are wonderful for toning and firming the face all being done while in a relaxed state. 

The cosmetic procedure; Microdermabrasion has become a very popular anti-aging skin treatment. This procedure is majorly done by a skincare specialist using a device to exfoliate the top layer of the skin. It is sought after by people of all skin types as it drastically helps retain and achieve youthful appearance and complexion.

There are at-home microdermabrasion treatments, spa treatments, and professional treatments performed by dermatologists that range from inexpensive to very pocket draining.

As we all know, skin aging occurs as people get older, this is so because the skin’s cell renewal system slows down, the skin also has less collagen and elasticity thus resulting in sagging tissue and wrinkles.

Microdermabrasion attempts to rectify this by stimulating and amplifying the skins renewal process, which then results in less noticeable lines in facial areas around the mouth, and eyes due to the enhanced elasticity and collagen production.

Along with basic spa facial treatments are other anti-aging skin treatments available such as pedicures, manicures, and body massages. A whole-body treatment and massage does its part by relaxing your nerves, increasing joint and muscle flexibility, blood circulation and giving you a younger feel. 

Everyone deserves a little time for themselves not just when attempting to fight skin aging. Healthy living, body pampering, energy boosters, exercising, etc are all great ways of showing your body love.
