Frequently applied skin rejuvenation methods

What is Skin Rejuvenation?


The signs of aging show themselves mostly on the skin. Irregular diet, harmful habits such as smoking and alcohol, insomnia, long exposure to sunlight accelerate the aging process of the skin. Over time, the skin loses its vitality and elasticity. Today, with the developments in the field of medical science and technology, the methods that help to eliminate the deteriorations on the skin are increasing rapidly.

After the age of thirties, the skin begins to change rapidly and wrinkles become more pronounced after the age of 40. People who complain of spots, wrinkles, and sagging on the skin can benefit from skin rejuvenation methods. Skin rejuvenation methods can be explained as treatment methods that aim to improve the quality of the skin.

What are Skin Rejuvenation Methods?


Some of the skin rejuvenation methods are skin rejuvenation methods that help the skin retain the moisture it has lost, non-surgical facelift methods that help to recover the sagging of the skin, and the filling method that aims to make the sharp lines lost in the skin become clear again. Some of the frequently applied skin rejuvenation methods are:

1. Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is one of the important methods that help the skin retain the moisture it has lost and make it look more lively and bright. After applying local anesthesia to the skin with the help of cream, mesotherapy serum is injected into the middle layer of the skin using small needles. Mesotherapy serum is prepared by taking into account the complaints of the people, using hyaluronic acid, vitamins, amino acids, and various minerals.

If it is aimed to reduce sagging and restore the elasticity of the skin as a result of the procedure, this process is called mesolifting. The process applied to restore the lost moisture and brightness of the skin is called mesoglow.

With the developing technology in recent years, it is also possible to have mesotherapy applications without needles for patients who do not want to have needle mesotherapy. As in the needle mesotherapy method, a special solution is prepared depending on the complaints of the person in the needle-free mesotherapy application. Unlike needle mesotherapy, the special solution prepared during the needle-free mesotherapy process is sent under the skin using sound waves with the help of an ultrasound device. After the application of mesotherapy, temporary side effects such as redness, bruising and swelling may be seen on the skin surface. These complaints usually go away on their own within 1-2 days.

2. Skin Rejuvenation with Focus Ultrasound

Focus ultrasound is one of the non-surgical facelift methods. Focused ultrasound, with the help of focused sound waves, activates the collagen production in the skin and restores the lost elasticity to the skin. Since sound wave interventions focus on the tissue between the muscle and fat layer, they only damage the targeted tissue. The body perceives the damaged tissue as a wound and wants to repair it. The damaged tissue begins to repair itself, thanks to the production of collagen, which is activated with the help of sound waves. Focus ultrasound is often preferred for sagging in the face and eyebrow area, as well as sagging in the neck area, which women complain about a lot. The effect of the application becomes visible 45-90 days after the procedure.

3. Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Laser skin rejuvenation is another method that helps to remove skin blemishes and sagging that are innate, caused by sun rays, or caused by some factors over time. When the laser is used as a skin rejuvenation method, edema formation on the skin and peeling of the skin layer by layer are provided with the help of laser pulses. As the sessions are repeated, the wrinkles disappear and the skin recovers, thanks to the edema formed on the skin. Since the upper layer of the skin is exposed to laser rays during laser application, it is recommended to have the application done in the winter months when the sun’s rays are not very intense.

4. Skin Rejuvenation by Radiofrequency Method

The purpose of the radiofrequency method is to support the production of collagen in the skin and to increase the firmness of the skin. The region that the radiofrequency method focuses on is the dermis layer. With the help of radio waves, the dermis layer is heated, and with the effect of the heat generated, the collagen-producing tissues here are activated, initiating the tightening process of the skin. Since the radio waves are focused on the deep layer of the skin, the skin surface is not damaged during the radiofrequency procedure. For this reason, radiofrequency is one of the skin rejuvenation procedures that can be performed in all seasons.

5. Botox

One of the most preferred methods among skin rejuvenation methods in skin rejuvenation with botox. Botox is injected into the problematic area with the help of small needles. Botox only stimulates the muscles and nerves in the area where it is injected; It does not harm other areas. At the end of the application, the muscles in the area where the procedure is applied relax and the skin wrinkles are opened. The effect of the procedure becomes visible within 2 weeks after the Botox procedure and its effect can continue for up to 10 months.

6. Filling Application

One of the most preferred skin rejuvenation methods is the removal of skin defects by using fillers. Although it is generally thought that botox and filler are the same processes among people, filler and botox are different procedures.

With the filling application, it is aimed to make the lines disappear again and to eliminate the wrinkle problems. After applying creams with local anesthetic properties during the filling process, hyaluronic acid is injected into the areas with wrinkles by the microinjection method.

Contrary to what is known, facial swelling does not occur when the filling process is applied by experts. Thanks to this application, the face is lifted up and the lines become sharper. Especially lip filling, cheekbone filling,  chin filling, filling application are among the most preferred ones.

7. Skin Rejuvenation with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Application

PRP means platelet-rich plasma. The most important task of platelets in the human body is to ensure coagulation when an injury occurs. Today, PRP application is used effectively in many areas from burn treatments to the treatment of injuries in athletes. In addition to these, PRP treatment is also frequently used in anti-aging treatments. The biggest advantage of the PRP application is that it is a method applied using people’s own blood. During the PRP process, the person’s own blood is taken and the blood taken is separated with the help of a special centrifuge device. After the separation process, the plasma part of the blood is injected into the person himself. Plasma injected under the skin with this method supports the production of collagen and helps to renew the cells in the area where it is applied.

8. Skin Rejuvenation with Stem Cell Method

Collagen tissues, which form the vitality of the skin and determine its quality, consist of cells called fibroblasts. Over time, these cells begin to lose their vitality. In the stem cell method, the fibroblasts that keep the skin alive are separated in private laboratories and by an expert team, and these cells are allowed to multiply outside with the help of plasma taken from the person’s own blood. The reproduced live cells are injected back into the person to increase the cells in the relevant area.

9. Skin Rejuvenation with Thread Face Lift Method

During the thread facelift procedure, the surgical threads, which are also used in surgeries, are placed under the skin and the sagging areas are suspended. Thanks to the threads, it is also aimed to increase the production of collagen. Some of these threads disappear over time, some remain in the area. The main purpose of this procedure is to fix the sagging tissues and to ensure the recovery of the relevant skin areas.

The aging of the skin is a natural process caused by many factors. Today, it is possible to slow down the aging rate of the skin thanks to anti-aging treatment methods. If you want to get detailed information about anti-aging methods and benefit from the skin rejuvenation methods you need, you can apply to a health institution.
