We all would love to stay young forever and getting old is one of our major concerns. This area naturally is of great interest to the cosmetic industry that claims to reverse the signs of ageing through various age reversal treatments. However, ageing is a natural phenomenon and an intrinsic feature of life. There is a variety of anti-aging therapies available in the market. We often place our confidence in the claims made by the manufacturer. Many people even get ready to go under the knife to reverse the damage caused due do ageing. However, it is important to understand that not all therapies that claim to reverse the signs of ageing are safe.
In this article we have highlighted how popular age reversal treatments work and some of the risks associated with them. This will help you to take a conscious decision before opting for any of the anti-aging therapies.
1. Anti-Ageing Hormones Are Not Proven To Be Effective Yet
Hormones are the chemicals secreted in our body and are involved in various physiological functions such as metabolism, immune function, sexual reproduction, and growth. Some hormones especially the human grow hormones, progesterone in men, and oestrogen in women decrease as we age.
Although several age reversal therapies claim that hormonal therapy, can reverse the signs of ageing, to date no research has confirmed this. Our body maintains the right balance of hormone naturally. However, when you decide to take extra hormones just to look younger, you surely create an artificial imbalance that body cannot cope with. Your body may actually react to it causing some undesired effects.
2. Laser Resurfacing Therapy Can Cause Serious Side Effects
Use of laser therapy is one of the most popularly used treatments to get rid of signs of ageing such as wrinkles and pigmentation. Laser resurfacing treatment has been shown to be effective in reducing the signs of ageing through processes such as dermal layer remodeling, collagen stimulation, regeneration of cellular materials, etc . However, along with its benefits laser treatment may also cause some serious side effects, such as persistent erythema, hypo- or hyperpigmentation, infection or scarring.
3. Botulin is a Costly Affair
Botulinum toxin (BTX) can neither improve the texture of skin nor can it prevent the skin ageing process. However, regular BTX injections can slow down the visible signs of skin ageing such as facial lines and fine wrinkles. However, administration of Botulin is very critical. It needs thorough understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the muscles and possible alterations in skin that may occur. So, obviously it has to be done through extremely skilled and professional hands and that’s makes it a costly affair.
4. Skin Rejuvenation – Chemical Peeling Needs a Long Recovery Time
Chemical peeling is becoming increasingly popular for the treatment of skin rejuvenation where it can improve damaged skin and fine wrinkles. Chemical peeling removes the top layers of skin so that the new skin that grows back is younger-looking. However chemical peeling is a type of chemosurgery and so there are risks associated with this procedure as with other surgical procedures. Chemical peel may result in scarring and infections. Deep chemical peels that are used to correct severe damage or heavy wrinkles require a longer recovery period within which it is extremely dangerous to get sun exposure.
Before trying any of these therapies first make sure to have a healthy lifestyle, be physically active, eat right food and manage your stress. You may opt for some natural therapies that reverse the signs of skin ageing and these include facials, body wraps and polishes. For better results look for therapies that use highest quality natural ingredients with anti-ageing properties.
