For women in their mid-twenties to early thirties who want to avoid drastic treatments decades later, adopting long-term anti-aging strategies early on in life is key. Here are five non-invasive anti-aging treatments that will help you turn back the clock and give you the results you've been craving:
1. At-Home Laser Treatments
Most at-home lasers stimulate the production of collagen and elastin—layers of skin that wither with age to make expression lines and coarse wrinkles more visible. Depending on your need, these lasers can be used to target specific areas to reduce wrinkles and make skin look young and radiant in just two to three weeks. Try the Tria Age Defying Laser. It is one of the best anti-aging lasers on the market. It is FDA-approved, affordable, and dermatologist-recommended.
2. Facial Toning Devices
If lasers freak you out, these gadgets are a great alternative. Similar to laser treatments, they help produce collagen and elastin by releasing low-level electric currents into the skin that reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They are hand-held and easy to use, and can be used in the comfort of your home. The NuFACE mini is a fairly new and highly acclaimed product. Results can be seen after four weeks of daily treatments, which are five minutes per session.
3. LED Light Therapy
During LED treatments, LED light (non-UV–ray light) deactivates certain enzymes that reduce the production of collagen, rejuvenating the skin and minimizing the appearance of wrinkles. The treatment is painless and takes 10–20 minutes per sitting, depending on how much area you want to cover. Notable results occur in about eight weeks, after conducting the treatments five times a week. LightStim and reVive Light Therapy are two LED light therapy sticks worth checking out.
4. Facial Peels
There is nothing like a good peel to leave your face looking fresh and vibrant. New products like the Microdelivery Overnight Anti-Aging Peel are made to target wrinkles. This specific two-step peel is the first of its kind. It recharges the skin like any other overnight sleeping mask but also provides immediate micro-exfoliation to help firm up the skin, reducing signs of aging. Several anti-aging peels are available on Sephora and Ulta—just make sure you find one that suits your skin type best.
5. Anti-Aging Serums
Adding one of these to your daily skin care routine can do wonders. Anti-aging serums work best when paired with a moisturizer of your choice to reveal more firm and youthful-looking skin. Serums are mostly water-based, which makes them light and fast-absorbing. Clarins's Double Serum is a fast-acting product, perfect for women in their thirties.
