The passage of time, our lifestyle and environmental exposures to certain substances also helps our body and especially our skin, grow old prematurely, with early signs like tired face, dark circles, increase in the depth of wrinkles, etc
So we’re going to show the 7 best kept secrets of many actresses, models and Hollywood actors that always have “a radiant face”:
1 – Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP):
It consists of extracting a small quantity of venous blood, similar to the way it is extracted, for a blood test. This is centrifuged to remove red blood cells and subsequently injected into the area to be treated.
The properties that are fostered encourage the growth of our own collagen (fibroblasts), to attenuate strains and bring brightness to the skin.
2 – Mesotherapy:
This is a medical procedure that consists of applying injections or microinjections into the dermis, helping to regenerate the skin and recover its vitality.
The compound that is employed is usually a cocktail containing vitamins C, B, amino acids and/or hyaluronic acid. It is usually done in sessions of 30-45 minutes and its effects last between 6-12 months.
3 – Hyaluronic Acid:
This is an injectable filler, obtained in the laboratory by chemical synthesis, biocompatible and resorbable; used to eliminate wrinkles, lines of expression, to remodel facial contours and lips, giving volume in the treated areas.
This technique is mainly administered in skin depressions and to provide or recover volume, it moisturizes the skin and correct facial imperfections such as small scars.
4 – Botox (Botulinum Toxin A):
This is a protein (toxin) synthesized and purified in the laboratory from a bacterium called Clostridium Botulinum.
The technique consists of injecting this substance into the facial musculature for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles (expression), to relax the treated muscle and soften the expression lines, thus achieving a semblance of “rested face”.
The duration of the effect varies between 6-12 months, depending on each person. This toxin is also used in medicine to treat other conditions such as muscle spasticity, migraines, hyperhidrosis, etc
5 – Facial creams:
These creams help to maintain adequate daily hydration, acting on the most superficial layers of the skin (epidermis and dermis). These should be appropriate to the skin type of each (normal skin, sensitive, dry, oily or mixed).
They contain sunscreen which helps to reduce the appearance of certain types of spots such as lentigos, ephelides, etc.; as well as prevent certain skin cancers, such as squamous cell carcinoma and pre-cancerous lesions (actinic keratoses). However, since these creams do not reach the deep layers of the skin they do not “hinder” the natural aging process, but only slow it down.
6 – A balanced diet:
Diet is essential to combat physical aging and prevent the onset of illness; it has been shown that a proper diet, rich in antioxidant vitamins such as vitamins C, E, and B-complex is the key. The Mediterranean diet is the best example of a healthy and balanced diet.
7 – Physical exercise:
Daily exercise, low-medium intensity, for a period of 30-45 minutes can help to reduce stress, sleep problems and encourages the release into the blood of certain endogenous substances (produced by our body) to maintain proper physical and mental health.
