Youthful skin has plenty of elasticity as well as facial fat. As the years go by, these features tend to give out leading to that sagging, uneven skin we’re all too familiar with. Years also spent in the punishing sun and coming into contact with various chemicals don’t help our cases either, so you’ll find that it begins to look rather diminished in the process too, with the sprouting of various blemishes. Being a large-scale problem for every one of us, it should come as no surprise that here have been discoveries of various minimally invasive ways to get that glow back- here’s what you need to know:
We’ll start with the most natural method of them all! The benefits of Vitamin C are well-rounded beginning with its most prominent ability to fight off the harmful effects of the sun’s UV rays. But did you know that Vitamin C also stimulates production of collagen? This is what improves your skin’s elasticity, reducing all those fine lines and wrinkles in the process. You can include Vitamin C into your lifestyle by investing in serum. When carrying out your skincare routine, make sure to add a drop of serum and allow the skin to absorb it for a few minutes, then go on to layer with your moisturizer.
More commonly known as Retinol, Vitamin A is perfect to use in your fight against aging spots and blemishes that appear after too much exposure to the sun. There are various retinol creams you can get over-the-counter that will help fade these spots as well as stimulate production of new cells. The prescription based retinoid can also help treat acne and even out your complexion. You’d have to apply retinol consistently, each night, for at least 12 weeks to notice any results however.
These are injectables which are used to increase volume around skin areas with wrinkles or depressions. The injectable is one of the most minimally invasive cosmetic procedures you’ll find out there and how it works is that the compound injected causes a slight swelling in the area. This swelling gives way to a more smoothened effect that fills out the area where there was previously a lack of volume.

If you have larger pores, acne scarring or even fine wrinkling around the mouth, this is normally treated through the process of microneedling. Microneedling uses needles (small ones) to prick the skin and open up more pathways for any beneficial substances like serum to seep through and essentially have deeper penetration. The procedure usually begins with the practitioner first applying a layer of serum over your face but even without this step, the needling can stimulate production of collagen. To see the effects, however, you need to wait for at least 4 treatments.
These are the most non-invasive solutions we can give you if you’re looking to transform your skin back into its former, healthy glory!
