Different Types of Skin Treatments

Here are some of the most popular skin treatments that you will find out on the market today to help you decide whether or not it is the right type of treatment for you:


“Botox” is a nickname given to the protein that is derived from the botulism toxin. Botox is injected beneath the surface of the skin so that your skin is smoothed out, thus eliminating any fine lines or wrinkles in your face. How does this work? Botox actually paralyzes your facial muscles, which in turn gives your skin a smoother appearance.

Women tend to choose Botox over any other facial procedures as it is cheaper and faster than a face lift. It is far less invasive, and almost anyone can afford a Botox treatment. It is important to acknowledge that with any skin treatment that there are risks. Botox can cause an allergic reaction, and it can also cause an undesired look of “surprise” or “shock” on the users’ face.

Laser Skin Treatments

Laser skin treatments of any sort are becoming all the rage, due to their convenience and wide variety of services offered. You can have facials, microdermabrasion, Botox, and several other laser skin treatments all during your lunch hour, meaning that you can come in for a 45 minute treatment and go back home or to the office with no one being any the wiser as to what treatment you just had on your face!

Depending on where you go, different laser skin treatments will be available so be sure to confirm with the spa, salon or plastic surgeon’s office you are visiting to see if they do have what you want available.

Cellulite Skin Treatments

Lets venture beyond the face for a moment and talk about cellulite. Cellulite is the dimpling of skin which usually occurs on the backs of thighs and buttocks’ of women. Cellulite is so common that it is said that even the thinnest of women suffer from cellulite in some form or another.

There are a lot of ways to get rid of cellulite, though one of the most popular is using “endermologie” cellulite treatments. These sorts of treatments will:

  • Reduce the amount of cellulite you have, as well as the inches added to your body
  • Smooth your bumpy and uneven skin
  • Reduce the appearance of any blemishes
  • Help reshape your behind, your thighs and your abs
  • Help you regain your shape after pregnancy

Perhaps the biggest benefit of all is how it is considered to be a non-surgical “liposuction” option. It is also said that such procedures will help increase your blood circulation, decrease the amount of muscular pains you may be suffering from, help prevent bedsores, and that it will also help relax and prevent any muscle spasms you may be experiencing in your buttocks and thighs.
