Treat The Skin You're In: 3 Spa Treatments To Make Your Skin Look Younger


Your skin is your body's biggest organ, and it's also one of the first things that people notice when they look at you – so you want to make sure that that first impression is a good one, right? But your skin can be prone to cracking, drying, wrinkling, and overall wear and tear that can unnecessarily age you and make you look dull and tired. Fear not, however, if this describes your skin – there are a number of treatments that work to reverse this problem, giving you smooth, hydrated skin and keeping you looking young and fresh. So if you're wondering exactly what skin rejuvenation treatments you should look into to make your skin look younger than here's what you need to know:


Medical spas have the advantage in skin care technology due to their specialized (though nonsurgical) treatments, and thermage is a great example of this advantage. Thermage is basically where radiofrequency is used to boost collagen production in your skin, resulting in tighter, firmer skin; it can be done anywhere on the body but is most commonly applied to the face and the stomach. While this procedure is still new (and thus slightly more expensive, with treatments hovering around a grand or so), it requires no healing time and works on all skin types, making it a viable option for younger skin that will surely get more popular (and more affordable) over time.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels, originally developed for treating skin irregularities like freckles, have become popular as a means for rejuvenating tired-looking skin via peeling off the outward layer of dead skin to reveal younger-looking, less scarred skin underneath. Chemical peels that are done in spas (medical or otherwise) normally include alpha or beta hydroxy acids as their main active component and, other than a slight redness to the skin after the treatment, generally are without any side effects.


Think of this technique as exfoliation on steroids, because that's kind of what it is; microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals to exfoliate your skin, remove dead skin cells, and stimulate that all-important collagen production all at the same time. Microdermabrasion is usually done with a small wand – and while the wand at your spa might be more powerful and do a better job, you can always touch up your skin in between spa visits with an at-home version, available via online retailers such as Amazon, usually for around a hundred bucks.

Choosing A Better Salon

Do you remember the last time you had your hair professionally done? About a year ago, I realized that I needed to have a little help with my look, so I started checking out different spas and salons in the area. I was able to find an amazing place that specialized in hairstyles for men, and so I made an appointment and then headed in. It was really incredible to see how much of a difference they were able to make, and within no time, I felt like I looked a ton better. This blog is all about choosing a better salon to get a personal makeover.
