Common Skin Treatments You Should Know About

You might be surprised to learn about the variety of skin treatments available today. Just like your heart and brain, your skin also needs to be kept in a good condition. Not to mention, healthy skin that’s been well taken care of allows you to feel most confident. It’s perfect for helping you that build good first impression at an interview or an important event.

Your skin is endlessly protecting you by acting as a physical barrier against germs and preventing you from getting sick. If it isn’t looked after, it can leave you in a very vulnerable state or cause wrinkles, acne scars, and aging spots. But fret not! The best skin clinic in Pakistan offers treatment that can help reduce these issues. 

Some common treatments include:

  • Laser treatments 
  • Botox
  • Chemical Peels
  • Body Contouring 
  • Microdermabrasion and Dermabrasion

LASER TREATMENT:

Also known as Laser Resurfacing, this treatment helps with:

  1. Wrinkles or fine lines 
  2.  Removal of acne or unwanted surgical scars
  3. Discolouration for a more balanced skin tone
  4. Removal of the body or facial hair.
  5. Skin laxity (When skin becomes less firm mainly due to aging)

It is a procedure that uses high-energy light to improve the appearance and tone of the skin. You will not see the effects of the laser treatment immediately, they will take time to appear as the new cells take time to grow.

There are two types: Ablative and Non-ablative. 

Ablative skin treatment is done by vapouring the skin’s outer, damaged layer. The penetration depends on the wavelength of light used. It stimulates collagen production to help with a better appearance. 

Non Ablative treatment does not break the topmost layer when treating deep skin issues. Rather, they work by heating the layers below and triggering collagen production to bring a good appearance. 

It is not painful and does not require a local anaesthetic.

BOTOX: 

Botox injections contain chemicals that weaken muscles and reduce wrinkles and excessive sweating among many others.

It is a very popular and safe cosmetic procedure and millions of them have been done. You won’t feel the injections at all except for a pinch if carried out by a professional at the best skin clinic in Pakistan. It can be completed in under an hour. 

It can take a few days for the chemical to take effect and can last for a whole year. 

CHEMICAL PEELS: 

For a chemical peel, a chemical solution is applied to your face by a brush and over the next few days, the outer layer peels off, revealing smoother skin.

It helps by:

  1. Removing age spots and discolouration
  2. Brightening your complexion 
  3. Removing precancerous growth 
  4. Getting rid of fine lines and scars

The peels have different strengths depending on the chemical solution. Depending on the skin issue, the cosmetic surgeon will choose what chemical to use.

Light peeling requires no downtime as it is a small procedure. Medium and deep peeling is done when there are a lot of wrinkles and deep scars caused by injuries or acne. They require the use of local anaesthetic and patients need more downtime. 

BODY CONTOURING: 

Also known as body sculpting, it can eliminate body fat, tighten the skin and shape the body. There are surgical and non-surgical procedures. It helps get rid of extra skin after weight loss or shape the body in areas in which weight loss is not helping. 

Non-surgical includes injection and laser lipolysis. These surgeries do not take long. For injection lipolysis, a drug is administered and in laser lipolysis, laser beams are used. Sometimes, results are seen after multiple treatments. This does not affect your day-to-day life so you can continue normal activities. 

Surgical includes liposuction and double chin surgery. Here the doctor or nurse may mark sites where the skin is in excess before the surgery. They will administer anaesthesia and make incisions and shape you the way you want. Liposuction is also used to suction out excess fat. For this procedure, it is recommended to follow the doctor’s instructions and to go home with someone to help you recover.

At the end of either surgery, after attending the best skin clinic in Pakistan, you will feel like you have become more defined and have smoother skin.  

MICRODERMABRASION and DERMABRASION:

In microdermabrasion and dermabrasion, an instrument is used to take off the outer layers of the skin and remove visibly damaged skin, leaving healthier skin. Though they sound similar, they work in different ways. 

Microdermabrasion treats by:

  1. removing age spots and light acne scars, 
  2. minimise lines 
  3. improve skin tone.

 It is a very gentle procedure that can be used anywhere on the body. 

The surgeon uses a spray to exfoliate the skin and then a vacuum is used to get rid of the spray particles and dead cells. To get the best results, this process should be done in a series. The treated area is sensitive to the sun and should be protected. 

Dermabrasion is a more powerful technique as it uses an instrument to remove the damaged skin layer by layer. This allows for new cell growth. It is not recommended for every skin type as it can affect skin pigmentation. 

It can:

  1. Reduce smile lines and wrinkles
  2. Bring smoother skin 
  3. Bring a better complexion

It is important to keep it safe from the sun as it is sensitive. The surgery may sound complicated but upon being done by experienced cosmetic surgeons at the best skin clinic in Pakistan, it will undoubtedly enhance your appearance.
