Aging brings so many things. Wisdom. Confidence. Fine lines. And while our own proprietary research found that 70% of American women (age 35 - 50) are not envious of younger women, almost half of the 750 respondents noted “wrinkles” as their number one skin concern. So while the marketing “anti-aging” adage may make us shudder, we certainly are all-in on looking fresh-faced as we head toward middle age.
In an effort to uncover the rejuvenating treatments that deliver real results, BALM went on a mission to dig through each solution's side effects and expected results, along with a clinical opinion from our own Dr. Schaffran.
Here are the Top 3 that made the cut:
This is a non-surgical treatment designed to help tighten sagging skin around the neck. It uses radio-frequency energy to lift and tighten using heat, and triggers the body to produce collagen, which helps to firm the skin. The best part: there is no downtime!
2. The Sculpting Laser, aka The Beauty Sandwich
This is a non-invasive and non-toxic beauty treatment with a unique skin-tightening method using two lasers stacked on top of the other creating “The Sandwich”. The treatment gives an immediate tightening effect with long-term stimulation of increased collagen production. It typically takes 6-8 treatments, with results lasting up to a year or possibly longer.
3. Dermal Stem Regeneration, aka The Time Machine
This is basically micro-needling with the addition of PRP applied to the skin after the treatment. PRP is platelet rich plasma derived from the patient’s own blood and centrifuged into a serum that gets applied to the skin. The benefits are that the platelets release growth factors that help to promote more collagen remodelling, improve the look of wrinkles and heal scar tissue. In addition to anti-aging benefits, it can also help other concerns like acne, hyperpigmentation and dry skin.
