Benefits of Combining Anti-Aging Treatments

4 Reasons to Combine Anti-Aging Treatments 

Combining anti-aging treatments might sound intimidating, especially when it comes to something as sensitive as your skin. But with more clinically proven treatment options available, the science is sound: The right combination of treatments and products can make for better-looking skin with minimal recovery time.  

Doesn’t that sound like a skin win? 

What is anti-aging therapy and why should you do it? 

Before we get into the nitty gritty, what exactly is anti-aging therapy? Anti-aging skin therapy can include treatments, supplements, and products that reduce the appearance of aging in the skin and promote skin health. Creams and serums are helpful, but intervention is necessary if you want to maintain youthful, healthy-looking skin. Without it, skin is subjected to often undesirable side-effects of aging, such as thinness, wrinkles, dryness, translucence, and age spots. It also takes longer to heal from minor cuts and abrasions and makes your skin more susceptible to skin ailments, like rosacea.  

1. When it comes to skincare, there is no such thing as “one size fits all”

The most obvious benefit to blending a variety of anti-aging therapies and products is being able to customize treatment for your skin’s unique needs. For example, when targeting fine lines and age spots, you might get better results when combining a non-injectable wrinkle smoothing treatment, like profractional resurfacing, with a PRP Collagen Boosting Treatment (a.k.a. “vampire facial”), which will naturally boost collagen production for longer-lasting results. Whatever your skincare goals, there are a variety of combinations available to help you achieve the best results.

2. Some treatments work better together 

We already know that some therapies—like the vampire facial—make excellent additions to other treatments at your clinic. You can go the extra mile at home, too, by adding dermatologist-recommended products to your skincare lineup between treatments in order to speed up healing and boost results. 
The SensiCalm cleanser from AlumierMD contains ceramides to help rebuild your skin’s protective barrier, as well as aloe to reduce any post-procedure inflammation and redness. We highly recommend integrating this cleanser into your skincare routine between treatments. 
 

3. Combining therapies makes it easier to target potential reactions 

Certain procedures can cause skin irritation and inflammation as natural (and usually harmless) reactions. Combining treatments meant to soothe the skin can minimize these reactions. For example, adding an Radiance IPL photofacial to other treatments can easily and painlessly reduce redness and inflammation while increasing desired results. Alternatively, hydradermabrasion and chemical peels also work well to hydrate skin, improving and extending the results of other treatments.

4. There’s less “down-time” 

It’s both more time- and cost-effective to do multiple treatments. Combining the right treatments with the perfect skincare regimen can also significantly reduce your recovery time.  
As with any treatment, speak with your medical professional to create the best plan and products suited for your skin type for maximum results. Remember that not all ingredients work well together, so be aware of potential adverse reactions before creating your own skincare cocktail at home—especially when applying anything in between treatments. 

 

Which ingredients have anti-aging properties?

No matter your age, it’s never too early (or too late) to create a skincare routine around protecting your skin and reversing, or postponing, signs of aging. But “anti-aging” is a vague term, so what are you actually looking for in an anti-aging product? 

Sunscreen 

Sun damage is one of the worst offenders when it comes to skin damage and advanced aging. Look for products containing broad spectrum protection, meaning it protects against UVB and UVA rays. We recommend using products with a minimum of 30 SPF. 

Retinol 

Next to sunscreen, retinoids like retinol can’t be beat. Retinoids are forms of vitamin Athey help your skin to shed and reproduce cells more rapidly, which is beneficial for combating wrinkles, age spots, and acne. 

Vitamin C 

This super vitamin is amazing for our bodies, inside and out. Applied topically in the correct concentration for your skin (make sure to consult your dermatologist), it protects skin from age-related damage and can brighten age spots over time. 

Lactic Acid 

This gentle alpha-hydroxy-acid (AHA) is like other chemical exfoliants. It removes dirt and dead cells with less risk for irritation. 

Hyaluronic Acid 

This common ingredient is known as a humectant, which draws water into the skin to keep it hydratedand we can all appreciate that hydrated, moisturized skin tends to look fuller and plumper, thus combatting the thinning effect of aging. That said, the results aren’t permanent, so these products need to be reapplied throughout the day. 

Ceramides 

This lipid is a key ingredient in maintaining your skin barrier, which does exactly what it sounds like: It protects your skin from damage and water loss. If this barrier isn’t functioning properly, skin can dry up, worsening the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
