New Year’s resolutions can be tough to follow, with all of the pressure to stick to hefty goals and achieve big dreams by 2019. We’re all for the positivity, hustle, and making big things happen. But those goals are often better when they’re not tied to just one year. To take a little pressure off this year, consider these four top anti-aging and beauty treatments to try in 2018.
Unsightly blackheads, enlarged pores, and acne troubles will all lead to even more skin care woes in 2018. Why not vow to make this the year to finally say goodbye to blackheads, and welcome in clear, smooth skin?
Depending on one’s skin care needs, there are two potential routes to smoother, healthier-looking skin: intense pulsed light (IPL) acne treatments or radio frequency-based skin resurfacing treatments. For those searching for an acne fix, IPL treatments, using a combination of red and blue light, work to heal skin inflammation while simultaneously killing off acne-causing bacteria deep in the pores. Alternatively, NanoFractional Radio Frequency treatments smoothen skin’s texture, making them the better fit for those with fewer breakouts but more visible pores. These treatments create tiny microdermal wounds that propel the skin’s natural healing process and kickstart collagen production for younger-looking skin. Following a treatment plan using either IPL acne treatments or skin resurfacing treatments will lead to glowing, healthier-looking skin well before the ball drops for 2019.
If 2017 was a year of hitting weight loss and fitness goals, make 2018 the year of tightening and toning. It can be great to see targets hit on the scale, but it’s tougher to see the positive impact when loose skin or stubborn fatty spots stick around despite those major achievements.
Rather than letting these trouble spots dictate wardrobe choices in 2018, and instead of getting let down by areas that can’t be targeted with diet and fitness alone, consider adding a third element to the anti-aging weight loss plan in 2018: body shaping treatments. These treatments use Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields to deliver heat below the skin’s surface. This heat naturally boosts collagen production and breaks down fat cells, tightening sagging skin, smoothing out cellulite, and making the body appear slimmer, sculpted, and more toned in ways creams, exercise, and diet just cannot. It’s the perfect beauty treatment to complement those 2017 fitness achievements.
Lots of people consider laser hair removal, but they never make the commitment. While it may seem like a big chunk of change to commit to a complete treatment plan, IPL or laser hair removal are actually more affordable alternatives to a lifetime of shaving, waxing, or depilatory creams.
IPL and laser hair removal treatments deliver energy to deeper layers of the skin, targeting melanin in the hair pigment and destroying the follicle for a permanent reduction in hair growth. Though they still target melanin, laser hair removal treatments are generally safer options than IPL for those with darker skin tones or tanned skin. It’s best to speak to a certified treatment provider before going all in, to find the right fit for you.
Don’t start off a New Year with the same old skin care routine. We’re all loyal to our classics, but skin changes over time. Skin care routines need to adapt to the skin’s needs now — not five years ago.
The body is in a state of constant damage control. Skin ages daily due to micro-injuries from multiple environmental factors, toxins, gravity, and even the expressions we make. To promote cell turnover and propel any anti-aging skincare regimen into 2018, consider adding a serum or cream containing cutting-edge stem cell therapy technology to rejuvenate and restore skin’s youthful appearance. Serums and creams containing stem cell therapy technology harness the pro-healing bio-signals produced by key cells in our bodies to heal and rejuvenate skin, making it look its very best, whatever the world has to throw at it this year.
