Shedding the Stigma Surrounding Cosmetic Surgery

I'm on a personal mission to get rid of the stigma that still surrounds cosmetic surgery in many regions. Why am I on this mission? A small surgery changed my life, and I have never regretted it. I was a very shy child with little confidence due to my protruding ears. It sounds like such a small problem to many people, but it affected me and my self esteem greatly. I saved up in high school while working a part-time job, and as soon as I could afford it, I got my parents to agree to let me have my ears "pinned back" when I was 16. My confidence skyrocketed immediately, and I finally began enjoying life for the first time. I want to help others facing similar problems know that they are not alone, and I hope I can touch many lives with my new blog!

Getting Older? Use Skin Rejuvenation To Help You Feel Better


If you are getting older, you may notice wrinkles or dull skin, which can make you feel much older. Fortunately, you have options to help with this. One of these options is using skin rejuvenation. Keep reading to learn more about this so you can find a doctor to perform the treatments you choose.  

Problems Skin Rejuvenation Can Help With

There are many problems skin rejuvenation can help you with. It can help if you have static wrinkles. Static wrinkles are wrinkles that appear on your face at all times no matter if you change facial movements. This can also help if you have dynamic wrinkles, which are wrinkles that appear when you have facial movements. For example, you will see wrinkles around your eyes appear when you smile but go away when you stop smiling. 

Skin rejuvenation can also help with skin pigmentation problems, such as dark patches, sunspots, freckles, and more. Many of these things are caused by too much sun exposure. If you have scars on your face, such as acne scars, skin rejuvenation can help you with this as well. 

If you have noticed your skin is not as firm this is due to collagen and elastin fibers breaking down. There are some skin rejuvenation treatments that can help build up collagen and elastin so your skin will look much firmer. If your skin appears dull this is often due to clogged pores and dead skin built up on the skin's surface. There are many skin rejuvenation treatments that can give you a vibrant glow. 

Skin Rejuvenation Treatments

There are many skin rejuvenation treatments available. What you choose depends on the problem or problems you are addressing. One is a chemical peel, which is also known as an acid peel. This removes the top layer of your skin to reveal healthier skin underneath. There are also peels that go much deeper which require more recovery time. 

If you have discoloration or sagging skin, the doctor may choose to use IPL (laser and intense pulse light) treatment. This treatment can be used on your face, as well as your neck, hands, and chest.  

Dermal fillers can be used which is injecting the filler into the wrinkle to plump up the area. This makes the wrinkle disappear. Botox injections can also help with wrinkles, which causes muscles to freeze so wrinkles soften. Both dermal fillers and Botox do not last forever, and treatment will have to be repeated to keep wrinkles away. 

Talk with your dermatologist to learn more about these treatments, as well as other skin rejuvenation treatments available.
