3 Savvy Ways To Spend Your Cosmetic Skin Care Budget

How You Can Benefit From Regular Dermatology Appointments

Read Time: 3 minutes

People with specific skin problems like acne or rosacea often make regular visits to a dermatologist. But even people who do not have particular skin complaints can benefit from regular dermatology visits. Dermatologists offer a range of cosmetic skin care services that can give glowing, more youthful-looking skin.

Boost your confidence with cosmetic skin care

Getting cosmetic treatments is a fantastic way to boost confidence. Some simple, cost-effective procedures can leave skin looking fresher, younger, and smoother.

1. Peel away old skin

Chemical peels can be a great way to reveal younger skin. During this cosmetic procedure, a dermatologist applies a chemical agent to make the top layer of skin peel away. Underneath is newer, more even, glowing skin.

Chemical peels can have anti-aging effects. The treatment can also reduce scarring or treat certain types of acne. While there are at-home chemical peels available, many people apply chemical peels incorrectly and end up doing more damage than good. For best results, patients should schedule a chemical peel with a dermatologist who is experienced in these cosmetic treatments.

2. Improve mood with facials

What is more pampering than a facial? Facials are a great addition to any facial routine. For best results, most dermatologists recommend incorporating facials into skin care on a monthly basis.

The effects of a facial can vary by type. Facials are available for acne, aging, hyperpigmentation, or a range of other skin concerns. Not only does a facial make skin look fresher and more glowing, but the process can also be good for a person’s mood. One study found that regular facial massages reduce anxiety and negative emotions.

3. Prick the skin to get smoother skin

Microneedling is a procedure that uses small needles to make micro-perforations in the surface of the skin. The pricked skin stimulates the growth of new collagen in the healing process. The result is skin that is fuller, smoother, and more supple.

Patients who get microneedling treatments experience improvement in the texture and firmness of the skin and a reduction in scarring. Microneedling also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and makes pores look tighter. The procedure involves minimal discomfort. Patients who get multiple sessions typically see a dramatic improvement in the overall texture of the skin.

A treatment for every patient
